Hank Williams, Lost or Saved?

Hank Williams died at only 29. He had a voice that sounded twice his age. Although he wrote one of the greatest gospel songs of all time, “I saw the Light,” I fear he spent most of his life in darkness. Although he faced the barren waste looking for cool clear water, he drank himself […]

TWO GAME CHANGING ELECTIONS

At CPAC Trump compared the Election of 2016 to the Election of 1828. Andrew Jackson’s victory broke the line of presidents from Virginia and Massachusetts, and to many it represented the triumph of the common man.

Leaving On a Jet Plane

Some of the objection and even resentment of Jesse Duplantis spending 54 million on a jet air plane is a failure of people and Christians in particular to either understand or appreciate basic principles of economics, especially as it relates to capitalism and investment. Folks we are not talking about a zero-sum socialist game, where […]
