Why doesn't your church tithe?

1-800-829-1040 From time to time, a well-meaning Christian will say something like this to me:  “I want to give my tithe.  How do I do that?” Now the wise guy in me is sorely tempted  - just one time! -  to give this reply: “Here’s what you need to do.  Call   1-800-829-1040 and let them know...

Addiction, and the captive thought

The real battle of addiction Many of us in the body of Christ struggle with addictions of various kinds. At this time, here at Lighthouse Bible Church, we are concentrating on what Colossians 3 has to say to us. In this section of the New Testament, the Lord is telling us to set our minds on the things above, not on the things of this earth. And we...

Why don't you perform water baptism in your church?

The short answer Because once the Holy Spirit got into the act of baptism, He put all the water fellas out of a job. But don’t worry; I’ll explain. The explanation does not rely on Church history or what other churches and denominations are doing … but is based only on what the Bible has to say.   Two kinds of New...

Have a cookie and chill.

The crisis in our souls We have been wrestling with topics in practical Christianity for a few months now. And that means that we have been getting into the nitty gritty of some raw, sensitive parts of life Like violence.  Sex.  The fool.  Fatherlessness. Marriage.  Parenting. Divorce. And when we do that it is really easy to get...

The Divorce Question

So as some of you know, I have been doing a stint substitute teaching at my kids’ school while the regular math teacher has been on pregnancy leave.  She’s back next week, so I am wrapping up my stint this Thursday.  It’s a Christian school so they have Friday off for Good Friday.

Satan is beating a dead horse

Who our real adversary is I still commit a lot of sins.  Not so much the overt kind, although I still commit those too.   But I am noticing more and more the sinfulness that is associated with my thoughts and attitudes.  Questioning and doubting God and His word.

'Will you throw me up in the air?' (Parents and Grace)

 “Dad, are bugs good to eat?”, asked the boy. “Let’s not talk about such things at the dinner table, son,” his father replied.   When dinner was over, the father turned to his son privately and asked him,  “Now, son, what did you want to ask me?” “Oh, nothing”, the boy said....

The Marriage Merry-go-round

Last week, we heard from a seasoned counselor who reported that only 7% of American marriages are healthy.  That means 93% are UN - healthy. How can it possibly be that only 7% of American marriages are healthy? How can so marry marriages that started with “I do” end up in “I won’t”? Here’s how. It’s something...
