    Atlas Shrugged...when it feels the weight of the world is on your shoulders, will you? I am finishing my 3rd or 4th reading (lost track) of the book “Atlas Shrugged” by Ayn Rand. All 1074 fine print pages of it. More words than the Old Testament. Dude. So if you know anything about Miss Rand, you know she advocates the tremendously egoistic, ath ...

    From “All the President’s Men,” it is one of the most famous quotes in movie history. As Bob Woodward investigates the Watergate scandal, informant “Deep Throat” tells him to get to the bottom of anything,  you have to “follow the money.”   ...

    Is any alcohol consumption a sin? Or does God prohibit only drunkenness? Books have been written on the subject, many by those with doctorates. But surely, surely God did not expect us to have doctorates to answer a question that confronts us every day, and a topic that is so common in His words to us ...

      Can you feel them? They seem subtle.  A mere zephyr from the South….. but you see a slight tinkling of the leaves, and get a feel something more is coming in. You wake up in the morning, and have that sense of warmth that was not there the day before.  The weather is changing.  Spring is coming. You feel it in your bones. ...

    I had a conversation with a good golf buddy of mine this week named Steve. We haven’t talked much since our golf league broke up a few years past, and I had no idea he could be quite the philosopher. But he had good words of advice for me, and it may apply to us all. So I thought I would share the story. ...

    Growing up as a teen-ager in what is commonly called a "Non-Institutional" Church of Christ, I remember many lessons about observing the "pattern" for the worship of the church. I've come to realization over the years there sure is a lot of confusion about this so-called "pattern"..... ...

    The young girls Sunday morning Bible class is currently doing a series on  "women in the Bible". We have chosen some women to study... not only their Biblical story, but the customs and cultures and even foods from their "times". This is a very interesting series and very exciting! So far we have studied Sarah, wife of Abraham, ...

    What do the people of the living word look like? This post continues the thought of the previous two posts, which began with a discussion of what it means to be the people of the living word, and then gave a Biblical basis for that idea. We now focus on how to bring those words to life by putting them into action. There is no single answer to t ...

    In the last post we identified our calling to be the people of the living word--not keeping our noses in the book or giving our souls over to the world. This post looks at where this idea can be found in Scripture, and the next post gives an idea of how this might play out in our lives.   In our men's Bible study this week we went off on a b ...

    It is as unnatural to be a "people in the book" as it is to be a "people of the world." Neither of these is our calling as Christians. We are to be a people of the living Word.   What is a "people in the book"? If we're talking about the Good Book, wouldn't that be a good thing? At various times, many Christian groups that were breaking away ...

    Yesterday at TLC we had a very cool devotional around a Feast of Booths theme. As we learned, the Feast/Festival of Booths/Tabernacles is an autumn festival in Israel. Many of the elements of the celebrations closely parallel elements of Jesus's life. One part that really stuck with me was the description of Jesus as our tabernacle:     ...

    We have talked before about living in reality and about acting in a way that is consistent with our values. One key guideline for acting in accordance with those two principles is honesty:   Being honest is simply being consistent with reality. To be dishonest is to be in conflict with reality, which is therefore self-defeating. A primary re ...
