What is good preaching? When it comes to style, there are many choices. Some ministers preach like an intellectual giving a dissertation. Speaking in a monotone, it would take a nearby explosion to get them to move from behind the pulpit. Others move around so much a pulpit seems unnecessary. Of those that move around, … Continue reading What is good preaching?
UFO or Demon
This week's Preacher's Point is difficult for me to write. The difficulty is that I like to stick to Biblical facts; this week is nearly all theory. The topic is something I have never preached or written about. I have only discussed this in a few private conversations. We had a guest speaker in college, … Continue reading UFO or Demon
Each one of us has individuals that influence our life. Parents are high on many people's list of those making a difference in their lives. After all, without our mom and dad, we would not exist.

I have these thoughts because Easter makes Christianity an all-or-nothing proposition, and many claiming Christianity try to walk in the middle of the road. Allow me to … Continue reading Is Easter Important Or Meaningless?

I have always been a news junkie, and as I have grown into my senior years, it is apparent that those in my younger years were correct. … Continue reading What Is Truth?
Fixing The Church
There are seven churches listed in Revelation chapters two and three. I believe that every church, in any place or time, can point at one of the seven churches and say, "There we are." In other words, every church holds the characteristics of one of the seven churches. If we look back at church history, … Continue reading Fixing The Church

The State Of The Union
The state of America can be a short speech. One sentence will do - "The country is a mess." Our problems include inflation, abortion, crime, mass shootings, health care, Chinese spy balloons, a general lack of trust, wildfires, hurricanes, the supply chain, an ever-increasing national debt, and the list goes on. Now that several problems … Continue reading The State Of The Union
