This Is NOT Our Father's World

  1. 10th February 2024
  2. Wallace G. Smith

A much-beloved Protestant hymn asserts, “This Is My Father’s World.” The song has a beautiful melody, and the sentiment is tempting. Yet, the reality of the matter—as so pointedly shown by the many sudden and destructive events caused by natural disasters—is that our world today is not our Father’s world.

“What’s in It for Me?”

  1. 03rd February 2024
  2. Roger Meyer

Selfless people do things for others without expecting anything in return, as we all should. But, when we consider human existence itself, it’s certainly not unreasonable to ask, “What’s in it for me?” Are the risks and rewards worth it? To live life well requires a tremendous commitment of our time and energy—is the cost and reward worth our time and energy...

  2. Justin D. Ridgeway

In the past two decades, there has been a dramatic increase in disrespect toward those in leadership positions. An attitude of hatred and vitriol toward political rivals permeates society. In a time of increased difficulty and heightened emotion, how should Christians conduct themselves towards leaders they perceive as “bad”?

  2. Josh Lyons

My wife and I are currently waging a tiring, fierce, and ongoing battle of epic proportions—with our two-year-old. He notches his share of victories as we charge the trenches of teaching him the word “no,” how to feed himself without throwing or sling-shotting his food, and how to submit to the terrible monster known as “Bedtime,” and so on. (It is tough being a...

As journalists, pundits, and podcasters survey conditions on the world scene, they analyze the threats to personal liberty, the economy, national defense, public health, and other important areas that affect their audience’s quality of life.

Why Gender Confusion?

  1. 17th January 2024
  2. J. Davy Crockett III

Is gender really a matter of choice? God’s teachings tell us it isn’t, and for some very important reasons that will help you understand His plan for humankind. Some things are so obvious that there should be no question about whether they are fact or fiction. Is it up or down, black or white, hot or cold? The physical facts determine the answer.  And yet, in...

A Mountain and a Hope

  2. Shannon Christal

On a cool fall day right around Thanksgiving, I was sitting on the front porch of my son’s and daughter-in-law’s home enjoying a cup of coffee, taking in the beautiful bright red and orange colors of the foliage on the hillside that is part of Petit Jean Mountain.

“Do You Have Ears to Hear?”

  2. Adam J. West

“I’m sorry. Could you repeat that?” Anyone who suffers from hearing loss has surely said this on more than one occasion. Hearing is a fascinating gift, and not to be taken for granted, for those who still possess it. Of the five senses (touch, taste, vision, smell, and hearing), hearing gives us continual input of dynamic and vital information. What can we learn...

Jailbirds

  1. 03rd January 2024
  2. J. Davy Crockett III

Most people have not been inside a jail. It’s not a place that anyone in their right mind wants to be. Yet, jails are filling up and new ones can’t be built fast enough. Local, state, and federal penal systems are strained beyond capacity, and they struggle for increases in their budgets to meet the demands placed upon their institutions.
