  • The Sword of Jesus
    Reference: Luke 12:49-56 The struggles over whether or not Biblical authority is determinative for current Christian belief or is only advisory has resulted in splits across many denominations. The cry of “schism” has been raised, accusing many who have left a denomination of dividing Christianity, “leaving the Church.” Yet splits and divisions are hardly new. […]
  • The Sin of Anxiety
    Reference: Luke 12:27-40 Cielo Vista shopping mall in El Paso is well known to me, a place I have been a dozen times, a friendly, cheerful and safe locale to take care of my shopping needs. To see it on the national news as a place of horror and tragedy is deeply disturbing, as I […]

St. Paul would have understood. The Roman Empire in which he lived resembled our modern scene, perhaps more than any other time before or since. In […]
  • Every Creature Under Heaven
    Colossians 1:21-27 Body and soul. The way in which the relationship between the spiritual and physical aspects of mankind has been perceived over the centuries creates something of a tangle. Western thought tends to see these two entities as separate, or in the case of materialists, as body without soul. To the latter, soul describes […]
