God will not be mocked. The Church and her people cannot negate nor skirt their responsibility to obey the Great Commission themselves, lest they be in the sin of omission. Writing someone else a check to do the work we’re commanded to do won’t cut it. When we give an account to God, that check
One of the many churches we visited last year had much potential. But during Sunday school, I learned they capitulated to egalitarianism, and so I left. But before leaving, we had an impromptu debate. I used the Scriptures, and their Deacon used the history of the apostatizing SBC. Today I ran into one of the
Chapter VI – First Campaign in the Valley The imminent threats of a horrific war were so ever-present. So much so that “violent mobs were collected, which intimidated not only the press, but the pulpit.” But even in times of war, the church has her marching orders, she must not flinch in the face of
Chapter V – Secession This chapter is comprehensive, so I’ll summarize just a few of my many observations. I am reading this book because I appreciate the South’s fight for freedom from the tyranny of the federal government and am currently doing so through the life and leadership of General Stonewall Jackson. And I wanted
I’m enjoying this excellent biography, the Life and Campaigns of Stonewall Jackson, written by his Chaplain, Robert L. Dabney (a Confederate States Army chaplain, and reformed Theologian). The following are some excerpts, as well as my thoughts and applications. Chapter IV – Life in Lexington Jackson now professes faith in Christ and has been baptized.

The following are some excerpts, as well as my thoughts and applications. Chapter III – In Mexico During the Mexican War of the 1840s, then ‘Major’ Jackson received
Compared to last year at this time, Snakes are more plentiful and everywhere. Thankfully we were able to get the camera going before he did the lickity split. When I was a kid I used a stick, but now that I’ve been reintroduced into country life, I ordered a pair of snake tongs. Then I’ll be
Before my time, the leadership of America began spending billions arming other countries, and some of those weapons have been (and will be) used against us. In our new millennium, we learned our Federal injustice system engaged in gunwalking, aka the fast & furious gun scandal. Whereas our citizens and police later were killed with
Let it be noted that I’m not writing this with an attitude like, “How could they do that?” Regretfully, decades ago, I utilized the professional services of a psychologist, who referred me to a psychiatrist, who later gave me prescriptions for psychotropic drugs. Many do not know this. But in some states, police officers shall
The title of my blog post ought to offend every Christian. But the truth is, we learned from Covid, that a majority of local churches and professing Christians, by their demonstration, held a higher view (or fear) of the authorities and the State, than the Lord and His immutable Word of God. The big news
We live in a time when Bereans are quickly slandered by wrongfully being called a “legalist,” “lacking grace,” or being “too critical.” So, I sought counsel from a group of Reformers asking them if my criticism of this baptism (video below) ‘would be a hill worth dying on, or that I might be too critical
If I were to run for the office of Sheriff, my platform would be God & Christ first, the Bible, the Constitution, State’s rights, while demonstrating the Reformed doctrine of Lesser Magistrate. One thought I was “angry” when I preached this sermon, righteous indignation is needed these days. Below is a blast from the past.
We’ve been in Tennessee for 12 months, and this was the first time I felt it necessary to go underground, and it’s a great prayer place. It was not an average tornado as we’ve previously experienced. It was part of a Tornadic Supercell that created simultaneous chaos and fatal devastation among multiple States. I was
I guess a man is never too old to enjoy life like a boy. While inside the house, I saw some of our chickens chasing a hen that had something hanging from her mouth. I wasn’t wearing my eyeglasses, so it was too blurry to discern right away. Nonetheless, a snake expert later identified it
