Do You Have Hope?

Ephesians 2:12 “You lived in this world without God and without hope.” What do people do when they have no hope? They imagine and set their own hope, but this type of hope is nothing more than fantasy and promises never kept. Sounds like our politicians today that make promises but are never able to… Read more »

Building a Strong Family

To me raising of a child is similar to building a building. Since I am a builder, I use what I know to compare with. In a building there are three phases of a building: the foundation, the shell, and the interior. I see mothers as laying the foundation of the child, and fathers building… Read more »

Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness

We are called the United States of America, but we are not united! The question is why? Our inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness as citizens are trying to be removed by people with power who think they know better than our founders. To ‘pursue’ means to go after, and to… Read more »

We Have the Right

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with inherent and inalienable rights; that among these, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; that to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the… Read more »

When the wicked are in charge: People will not accept divine guidance; sin and immorality flourishes, and the country will become unstable. Good people will be punished for refusing to accept their… Read more »

What is Happening to America?

Is this what happened to America? “The godly have given in to the wicked, and it has polluted our land like muddying a spring.” Proverbs 25:26 “The rich have become wealthy through extortion and violence. The people are so used to lying that they can no longer discern the truth from a lie.” Micah 6:12… Read more »

Knowledge with Wisdom

1 Kings 4:29 tells us that God gave Solomon very great wisdom and understanding, and knowledge. Today we have leaders who only have some knowledge, but the knowledge they do have they haveno understanding and wisdom along with it. What will be the outcome with this type of leadership? Without wisdom you are a fool,… Read more »

A Blessing or a Curse

How meaningless to think that wealth brings true happiness! For true happiness comes from God. Enjoy what you have rather than desiring what you don’t have. Commit yourselves wholeheartedly to God’s words, and teach them to your children. Talk about the words of God when you are at home and when you are on the… Read more »
