VBS 2016 – Kids Say the Funniest Things

Twas the middle of the week. Thursday, I believe. We’d been talking about Noah and the flood all week, and we were looking at being thankful to God for His protection and provision. I had a poster depicting Noah burning an animal on a stone altar. I asked the children, what did Noah do when […]

The Rich Man & Lazarus

I was once again privileged to preach to the folks at First Baptist Church of New Albany, OH on the final Sunday of May, 2016. As you, dear reader, may know, I have recently been trying to memorize chunks of Scripture. One of my favorite passages is Psalm 34. As I believed the end of […]

Abortion and Women as Victims

In light of recent debates and misinformation about the topic, I wanted to lay out my thoughts on the recent debate surrounding whether women should be held responsible if abortion is made illegal. In particular, what I’m referring to is a quote from this article. (emphasis my own) A consistent pro-life position can maintain that […]
