Christian Stewardship

The basic premise of Christian steward­ship is that God is the Creator, Possessor, and Upholder of all. “The earth is the Lord’s and the fulness thereof,” confesses David in Psalm 24. “For He hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.” Stewardship presupposes God’s absolute ownership of all.

Dialogue? Someone’s Out There

“Those men in Skylab sure are finding out a lot about our solar system,” he said. “Oh,” I said. “But you know, they are just scratching the surface when it comes to finding out how we got here and how things are interrelated,” he said. “Oh,” I said. “You know, we’ve been trying for years […]

Whatsoever Things are Pure

“Did you hear the latest?” “No, what?” “Well, Joe and Sherri got engaged last week and they are getting married next week; draw your own conclusion.” “O well, it happens to a lot of kids.” Does that little gossiping conversation make you laugh or maybe smile? Or maybe you think that it is an exaggeration. […]
