ANOTHER COFFEE BREAK: THE CONSEQUENCES OF CHOICE

October 30th, 2008|ANOTHER COFFEE BREAK:|

Some folks have taken offense to my discussions concerning this (and past) elections, and one reader even suggested that I was "politicizing the Lord" with my commentary. It's a shame when folks only see the commentary from a "conservative" or "liberal" point of view instead of recognizing the spiritual consequences of our choices.

ANOTHER COFFEE BREAK: A CALL TO PRAYER

Dutch Sheets is a brother in the Lord whom I first met some 26 or 27 years ago. He was already a man of great wisdom and integrity in God when I first met him, and in the years that have passed, he has grown into a prophet, pastor and teacher of some considerable renown.

ANOTHER COFFEE BREAK: THE POLITICS OF MURDER

October 24th, 2008|ANOTHER COFFEE BREAK:|

No topic has more galvanized the conservative right nor angered the liberal left than the subject of abortion rights. When I ran for Congress, my Republican primary opponent was pro-abortion, and yet a professing born-again, committed Christian. Because the two positions -- pro-abortion and pro-life -- are at such diametric odds with each other, I came to the conclusion that either my opponent was ignorant of the Word of God on the subject of abortion, or her "professed Christianity" was nothing more than a political ploy to gain the support of conservative Christians in our congressional district.
