The English King James Bible is the best selling book in history, by an extremely wide margin. With multiple billions of copies in print, no other book can claim even one billion copies in print. Even more impressive, the King James Bible remains one of the most popular translations of the Bible today, in spite of being in an archaic dialect of English that is well over four centuries old. There is simply no more beloved, influential, or widely read book in the world. King James Bible, KJV Bi...

What is Fundamentalism? The word fundamental can describe any religious impulse that adheres to its basic tenets. Fundamentalism, for the purpose of this article, is a movement within the church that holds to the essentials of the Christian faith. In modern times the word fundamentalist is often used in a derogatory sense. The Fundamentalist movement has its roots in Princeton Theological Seminary because of its association with graduates from that institution. Two wealthy church laymen commi...

Not me, of course. I'm retired. Well sometimes my brain is working overtime, especially when I'm trying to fall asleep at night. But no, I'm talking about God working overtime. In my life. Let's start with the house I just sold. It had been used as a rental and was in rough shape. Rougher than we even knew. But God had given me the price to ask for it months before, so in spite of people's good intentions to help me increase my profit, I stuck to that price. When I finally was about to list...

🤍Joseph and His Coat of Many colors🤍 Joseph was out in the fields, helping his older brothers feed the animals. There were cows, sheep, goats, and just about every other kind of farm animal. There was a lot of work that needed to be done and everyone had to lend a hand. After the chores were finished, they went home to eat a nice meal. They talked about the events of the day. Then Joseph's father called Joseph away from his other brothers and handed him a gift....

This is it! This right here is the “meat and potatoes” of your live show. I work on developing the foundation of a performance more than anything else. My wife doesn’t like eating burritos when the tortilla splits open and all the filling falls out. Whether it’s savory like a burrito or something sweet like a donut, you can’t enjoy the filling without a good foundation. ...

If you've ever heard of Mormonism and have had missionaries knocking on your doors telling you it's the same thing as Christianity do not believe them. Mormonism is fundamentally different than Christianity and follows another gospel, another God, and another Christ. I will explain why below. First of all it is important to understand what Mormonism is and the basics of what they teach. Mormonism began in the 19th Century from the founder Joseph Smith who Mormons consider to be a prophet. Mormo...

Today we got the rest of our stuff - the stuff we wanted, anyway - out of the house we sold last week. It's been a journey, for many reasons that I won't go into here. But the last few months have been especially rough, only made easier by the fact that our buyer is a man with a kind heart and a helpful spirit. There's no doubt in my mind that God orchestrated the process from beginning to end. A friend of mind has been living in the house almost since we moved out in 2015 to live in our ...

A good meal, in a good setting, with good people having good conversations can make for a great experience together. Food, by definition, is any nutritious substance that people or animals eat or drink or that plants absorb in order to maintain life and growth. Not too long ago, I was reading a book with a line that read, “Two topics that impact everyone, whether you are interested in them or not: health and money.” Our health can be traced back to our genetics, but with proper nutrients, a...

Depending on whether you are a devout Christian or not, the importance of antique Bible pages will vary. Devout Christians find holding a piece of the “Word of God,” studying it, and sharing it with others a joy that just can’t be measured in terms of words or money. Some others find these antique Bible pages items worth collecting and cherishing, and perhaps even handing them down to the next generation to be kept as a family heirloom. There’s also a third category of people who believe hold...

In church we ask for the Holy Spirit to have his way in us and move in the service. Sometimes I think it’ll take the Holy Spirit’s movement to get some of us to move on the platform at all! We’re all creatures of habit. We’re almost programmed for it from an early age. ...

According to recent statistics, Christians are the largest religious group, with a whopping 2.3 billion believers or a noticeable 31.2% of the global population of 7.3 billion. Christians have always deemed the era of Jesus and his disciples a standard for all the other ages. This belief powered the church’s faith in Jesus - the Messiah, who was resurrected. This faith also drove the anticipation of forgiveness of sins through Jesus. But have you ever wondered how the history of the Christian ch...

This post isn't about the Washington, DC-based Museum of the Bible. Instead, it’s about the interesting journey of The Bible Museum and how it grew up to become a popular name worldwide from its modest start. It all began without any plan, but by God’s grace, it grew so big that people from far and wide now come to the online site as well as the physical store to browse and buy ancient and rare Bibles and Bible leaves. Since 1987, The Bible Museum has been the largest dealer of antique and ra...

I wonder how many of us professional musicians mislead our audience. We are either intentionally leading them or maybe unintentionally misleading them. I remember one night – back before I was old enough to join our church youth group – my church hosted a concert by a local band that was friends of our family.  My dad was down on the main floor running lights and had designated one of the older youth members to run the spotlight from up in the balcony. At one point during the show, the lead gu...

First, happy Mother's Day to every mom who knows love better than any other human can. We have been equipped in ways that are unique and, some have said, bring us closer to knowing our own Creator's heart than we would have thought possible, for we have the most amazing part in the miracle of creating life, otherwise known only to God Himself! Mother's Day certainly celebrates all that mothers do, from the nurturing and protecting our babies in the earliest days of their lives until we go...

Palm Sunday. Not the anniversary, rather the celebration. As I was growing up it was a celebratory Mass, and we took our palms home and displayed them on the wall behind the crucifix (that also contained a small vial of holy water) in the round-ish hallway outside the bedrooms. As such it was a reminder for the rest of the year, to me, of how beloved and praised Jesus was...until the crowd turned on Him and demanded the cruelest form of death. But for today, He was loved and celebrated by...
