Few subjects are discussed more and understood less than leadership. Everyone knows that society and the Church desperately need it. Yet it continues to be elusive. The Church has numerous leadership books and conferences available to it, yet hundreds of churches in America are closing their doors every year because their leaders cannot navigate them…

What to do? There is no debating it. We live in an ungodly, spiritually deteriorating age. The evidence is everywhere. Not only does the media mock and reject Christian morals, but governments are legislating against Christian beliefs. Immoral lifestyles are not only being flaunted, they are being pushed upon the Church with religious vigor. To…

Over the course of the presidential election, I have often been asked for advice on how to vote. This has been an exceedingly unpredictable and confusing process, to say the least! Scripture tells us that, “the authorities that exist are appointed by God” (Rom. 13:1). This means that whoever becomes the next president will be…

The famed Greek philosopher Aristotle identified three primary forms of government: monarchy, oligarchy, and democracy. Of the three, Aristotle favored democracy the least. He did so because he claimed it was the most easily deceived and led astray, which would result in anarchy. Aristotle believed that a healthy democracy was better than a corrupt monarchy…

In case you haven’t heard, the United States is having a presidential election in November. If you really haven’t heard, you must either have spent the last year at the International Space Station or been shipwrecked on a deserted island.

2015 has drawn to a close. Much has occurred, both good and evil. Moments of inspiration and goodness have interspersed a steady barrage of wickedness and violence. Americans have watched in horror as terrorists have committed heinous acts of cruelty upon innocent civilians in traditionally safe venues such as Paris and San Bernardino. Americans have…

The most painful experiences of my life have come at the hands of other people. My life’s most excruciating moments have occurred when others hurt me, either intentionally or accidentally. It is a harsh reality of the human existence that people hurt one another. One of the aspects of heaven that has always been appealing…

The days in which we live are dark indeed. You need only watch the news for a brief time to discern that we live in a time of evil and darkness. Ironically, despite living in the most scientific age in history, with more knowledge and information accessible to humanity than ever before, we regularly experience…

This week my father and I had our latest book published. It’s called: Flickering Lamps: Christ and His Church.

Some of their buildings have been converted into coffee shops, businesses,…
