Bi-Vocational Ministry
The older I get the
less I like the term bi-vocational pastor.   I think the term is a misrepresentation of what is happening in the life
of a Pastor who also is engaged in secular employment of some kind.   It creates a dichotomy that we argue against

Moses Also Was Displeased
Chapter eleven of Numbers opens with
the declaration “And when the people complained, it displeased the LORD: and
the LORD heard it and his anger was kindled”.

No One Is Perfect!

We are blessed when good things happen to us but wh...

Judgment Is Not Coming
Yes, that's right judgment is not coming.  How can it not be coming you ask?  With wickedness waxing stronger and stronger. With every perversion paraded in pride.  Babies parts are sold and we are shocked for a few days and then go back to living life.  Th...

First Century Intimidation
Intimidation has always been a powerful weapon in the armory of the enemy of all righteousness.  Intimidation can come in many different forms.  It can be subtle or obvious.  It can come in the form of mockery, disdain, physical harm and even death.  Intimi...
