Legacy of Fools

  1. 10th April 2021
  2. J. Davy Crockett III

But cups, like many other things in the Bible, are used as metaphors or symbols. A cup may be used as a symbol of intoxication and deception. “Pouring out” a cup may symbolize God’s wrath or...

A Bad Combination

It sometimes comes down to “chemistry” and an entire “team’s” willingness to pull together, whether it’s a team of eleven, twenty, or two. The Hebrew Scriptures have a great deal of information concerning teamwork—or the lack thereof. Let us consider one...

This eye-opening information provides an overview of a very interesting trend: that Americans’ views on many moral issues are rapidly departing from the morals established in the Bible.

“Excruciating… Really?”

  1. 27th March 2021
  2. Adam J. West

“That was excruciating!” We hear this statement from individuals, or from ourselves at times, after suffering an injury like breaking a bone, hammering an ill-placed thumb rather than a nail, or stubbing a big toe on the bedpost while stumbling our way through a darkened bedroom. But we might ask, “Excruciating… really?”

The Last Minute

  1. 17th March 2021
  2. J. Davy Crockett III

There is a wry old saying that “if it weren't for the last minute, I would never get anything done!” Many people live by this premise. Tension certainly builds as a critical deadline nears or a crisis looms, and the potential for a hazardous or devastating outcome can be exciting. Movies, television, and adventure stories often use this scenario, where events...

A “big reveal” is popular today for expectant parents to reveal the gender of their baby to excited family and friends. Mystery stories and movies also employ a “big reveal” at a crucial time in the story to maintain interest. The Bible also contains very interesting and captivating “big reveals.” Expectant parents are excited to find out their baby’s gender—boy...

  2. Paul Kearns

Some years ago, I traveled to the Philippines, and there I witnessed much that I will never forget. One event, in particular, provoked me to think deeply about the issues it raised. When my wife and I made our way to the roadside after eating at a restaurant, two young boys—no older than nine or ten—saw that we needed a taxi. Seeing that we were "Westerners,"...
