Ancient Paths

  1. 07th September 2017
  2. Roger Meyer (guest columnist)

Ancient paths, found on every continent, were used by people living centuries ago to travel from place to place and trade their goods. These ancient pathways were the best route—or sometimes the only route—to take to arrive safely at the desired destination.

Offline to Reality?

  1. 05th September 2017

I still remember seeing a cartoon some time ago that summed up an interesting trend in Western society. It showed four children playing on a park bench with their tablets and devices, with a desolate playground in the background. The caption stated, “children playing.” This satire illustrates a starkly troubling phenomenon. In our desire to virtually connect...

Ages to Come

  1. 02nd September 2017
  2. Roger Meyer (guest columnist)

Consider, for a moment, the geologic timeline of the Earth, which estimates our planet to be 4.5 billion years of age. The age of the universe is three times longer, estimated at 13.8 billion years. Since man’s average lifespan is generally less than a mere century, we cannot adequately comprehend billions of years.

Mr. Know It All

The mystery of the future is one of the captivating elements in the mind of a young person as he or she imagines life ahead. Children come to wonder about their personal futures. A young boy may declare that when he grows up, he wants to fly jet aircraft. One of my own sons wanted to operate heavy earth moving equipment. My granddaughter wants to be a princess....

The Real "Walking Dead"

  1. 29th August 2017
  2. Roger Meyer (guest columnist)

The “walking dead” or zombie genre of movies and television programs must be very popular. I see advertisements for them every time I turn on the television. Are there really “walking dead?” A long time ago, I saw my first (and last!) zombie movie. With all due respect to the actors, actresses and producers, I was—and still am—thoroughly unimpressed. Any little...

A Bloody Business

  1. 26th August 2017
  2. J. Davy Crockett III

There is a daily deluge of news stories about gun violence and the deaths of young people involved in gang activity, or another ambush of a police officer, or a protest that becomes a riot, often with loss of life and property damage. Big metropolises like Chicago, Baltimore, Los Angeles, Houston and even smaller cities like Little Rock, Arkansas seem unable to...

Many will long remember the “great eclipse” of 2017. Some believe that it was some kind of sign from God. And many believe that a similar solar eclipse marked the Crucifixion and death of Jesus. What really happened at Jesus’ death was both amazing and well-documented—but it was no mere solar eclipse!

Hypocrisy

  1. 22nd August 2017
  2. Roger Meyer (guest columnist)

Jesus warned the disciples to beware of hypocrisy. People do not like hypocrisy in others. But could we ourselves be hypocrites? Jesus told His disciples: “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. For there is nothing covered that will not be revealed, nor hidden that will not be known” (Luke 12:1–2). Hypocrisy comes to light sooner or later,...

The August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse is a very rare event because it will be seen in the United States—and only the United States—from coast to coast. No other nation will be touched by this total solar eclipse. Referring to Genesis 1:14, some see this as a warning sign from God. Is it? Are eclipses signs? And if so, then what are they signs of? What...

Opportunities!

  1. 17th August 2017
  2. J. Davy Crockett III

It seems that when opportunity knocks, many don’t recognize it, because it is disguised as work. Some think that opportunity is actually “luck.” Yet, this “luck” seems to follow those who work hard, fulfilling their obligations and commitments. With the workplace in transition because of modern methods, new technology, and changing markets, many fail to keep up...
