Luk 18.1

“…Men ought always to pray, and not to faint;”


Abraham Lincoln is credited with saying, “The Lord must love poor people; He made a lot of them.” Lincoln’s analogy may be incorrect but poor people are more likely to pray than rich people. God wants to hear from His “kids” When is the last time (other than emergency) you called on Him? When did you say? – eab, 4/5/18


“Affluence has never created great faith.”

– Ken Rice, sermon, 12/30/91


When a quote (face book, twitter, google+ etc.) resonates with you, it would be good for you to see: 1) Who he is (really is, even if you think you know), 2.) What he is doing, 3.) Where is his “allegiance” (religious persuasion), 4.) When did he change, & 5.) Why he’s being vocal on this issue.

beyond vainness

Some want an impressive structure

with steeple and carved door,

Some people like colored windows

and an attractive floor,

Others worship in a house

which strikes one with its plainness.

Worshiping God is a must –

get beyond the building’s vainness.

Compared to the Lords’ riches

all churches are clearly poor.

Dan 7.10

“…Ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him:

the judgment was set, and the books were opened.”


It’s sad when a friend/relative is on the left road but insists they’re on the right road. At the end, the Son of man, “…Shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left” (Mat 25.33). It is simple but true – once one leaves the right way, the only “way” left is the wrong (left) way. Oh, be watchful, Brother/ Sister. – eab, 4/14/18



“In the beginning I devoured Augustine, but when…I knew what justification by faith really was, then it was out with him.”

– Martin Luther


Many children today need a strong masculine image in their lives ‘cause dad is dead or gone. Who makes the best “substitute male parent”? Probably the safest man is a near relative: grandpa, uncle & it may be best if they’re not fully aware of their influence. If they can include the child without the child being conscience of the inclusion – the more natural this is, the better. A non-related man may be able to “plug-in” here, but he needs to be a genuine Christian & all man.
