While on a run recently, I was listening to the TED Talks podcast titled Believers and Doubters. It was supposed...
On a dangerous seacoast where shipwrecks often occur there was once a crude little lifesaving station. The building was just a hut, and there was only 1 boat, but the few devoted members kept a constant watch over the sea, and with no thought for...
You probably missed the news story a couple weeks ago in The Washington Times about the brouhaha that erupted between France and Iran. The two counties faced a diplomatic meltdown over a dispute regarding the menu at a proposed dinner between their presidents. Iranian President...

Terrorism has become a fixture of the Modern World. Terrorists use it as a means to some political or religious end....
In John 10:10 Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
This is a good promise to ponder as we celebrate Christmas. Jesus came that we could have life. And however much life we’ve received...
The State of California recently passed into law what is known as “Physician-assisted suicide.” That is, doctors will no longer be charged with a crime for assisting those who want to end their lives by suicide. The California State legislature passed the bill and it...

What follows is a brief (sort of) review of Daniel 9 as it relates to Luke 19 and the Triumphal Entry of Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. This is a follow-up to Pastor Lance’s message given on Sunday, March 29, 2015.
During the War of 1813, the USS Constitution won 5 engagements with British warships. During one battle with the HMS Guerriere, when the cannonballs of a broadside bounced off the Constitution’s sides, a sailor was heard to yell, “Huzzah! her sides are made of iron!” earning the...
