Clergy View: The Antichrist
The Bible is truth. Truth about God and truth about humanity. The Bible also tells the end of history; that in the last days, there will be times of difficulty, which will be full of human and supernatural conflict, climaxed by the coming of an adversary of God, called in Scripture...

Is God male? The Episcopal Church debates whether to change its Book of Common Prayer.
The terms for God, in the poetic language of the prayers written for centuries, have almost always been male: Father. King. Lord. And in the...

Reader Opinion: God help us
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones." Amen!...

Reader Opinion: In our hearts
"For I am persuaded that neither death nor life,nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate US from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Amen! Romans 8:38...

We ask you, God, the Creator of the soil, to bless all persons that are using your technology to naturally enrich your soil. We also ask for your blessing on those who are preparing the produce from your gardens for nutrition of your children, young and the elderly. We know that your...

Opinion: Following Jesus, or following Trump?
"No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other." (Matthew 6:24) The verse refers to money, but in light of today's debate about the unaccountable devotion many Christian leaders have for President...

Reader Opinion: March for life
You know, it would be nice if all the people in the March for Our Lives rallies would march and rally with the same depth of feeling to protest against the premeditated murder of all the unborn babies that are brutally extracted at these abortion clinics. It's a shame the high schools...

Reader Opinion: What I've wanted to say
Thank you to the writer of the April 1 Reader Opinion letter "Gun control" about how not honoring God has opened the door to hatred and violence. It's the letter that I wanted to write months ago, but I could not express it the way I wanted. You did it! and I'm grateful. It's the...

Reader Opinion: Gun control
Since the dawn of creation there has been both good and evil in the hearts of men and women. We all contain the seeds of kindness or the seeds of violence. The first recorded act of violence was when Cain slew his brother Abel out in the field. The villain was not the club he used....

Reader Opinion: Choose to serve God
"For I am the Lord, I do not change. ... Return to Me, and I will return to you." Amen. Mal. 7:6a & 7d. The last couple of weeks I've tried to write 2 letters but God said "Not now" and he sounded like he meant it, The reason being, I believe, was all I was going to add to the noise...
