God gives us rules to live by

You may or may not remember the advertising mogul Ted Turner - or you might notice as you watch those great old movies on his TV channel and say, "Oh, that Ted Turner." Anyway, he made a speech one day where he is quoted, "The Ten Commandments are obsolete and I have written my own, which are up-to-date for the modern man." I don't know if he carved them on stone or posted them on one of his billboards, but the man has never lost his modesty.

Only the love of God unites us

Economics seem to be running the country today - along with ISIS - and there is a greater separation between the haves and the have nots. I always go back to my Bible for most every answer and, by George, the Bible has the answer even if it takes some work to discover it. There is a great parable - in fact, most of the familiar ones are found in Luke - and Jesus did not drop this teaching story out to confuse His listeners or us readers who are removed some two thousand years from the source. Let's see what He had ...

Support rural communities

Why is it important to support rural Georgia? Our neighbors in the state's small communities are suffering. Median household income keeps falling and concentrated poverty is rising. Employment is down and job opportunities are drying up. Despite the Affordable Care Act, many must drive more than 50 miles to see a physician. Bright young people are leaving for the lure of big cities.

What exactly is the Bible?

I will assume that most everyone who calls himself Christian has a Bible and reads it occasionally. I also believe that most have a certain idea of how their Bible should be read: liberal, conservative, fundamental, traditional, scholarly, etc. Most of us would call our Bible the Authority or the Word of God, but how it is understood - depending upon the reader - can and has been problematic at best. Where do I begin?

Listen to the message from God

Parousia, eschatology, antinomianism, deontology, existentialism ... a lot of words that probably don't mean diddly - a technical term - to most of us. Now, if we can understand one another, then we've got something going, but if not, then we have big trouble.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Life lessons from the dead

Mankind has always been interested - even fascinated - with the possibility of speaking with the dead, even by occult means. This interest is not tolerated in scripture: In fact, the practices of sorcery and witchcraft are condemned because they traffic in the forces of spiritual evil, turning people away from God.

Living with Children with John Rosemond: Toddler’s new habit not as bad as her bite

Q: My just-turned 3-year-old daughter has started biting other children in her preschool program. I put her in for three mornings a week thinking she could benefit from a group social experience, but it seems to be backfiring. She bites some other child - the same one, usually - almost every day. When it happens, her teacher separates her from the group, tries to calm her down, and talks to her about what she should have done instead of biting. That's obviously not working, and now the director is getting pressure from other parents to expel her.

The importance of leadership

The most used definition of religion is, and this is not the only definition, "Any specific system of belief, worship, conduct, etc., often involving a code of ethics and a philosophy." What that means to me is that if we believe in a higher power, we also act and understand like we believe in that outside force that connects us to the infinite. In my humble thought process, if I call someone "doctor" then I accept his or her credentials and allow him or her to heal or cure. The same process can be easily applied to a pilot, a ...
