“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”


“The feet that once carried me to…racecourse, dance, saloon, cardtable, theatre…everyplace of worldly amusement were now…church…prayermeeting & the land of immortal day.”

– J B McBride


God in His providence has allowed your husband to die. It’s been a respectable amount of time since & you’ve allowed yourself to think about dating, & marriage. Please do not even consider a man who is divorced. Many pulpits are silent about D&R (divorce & remarriage). Too few leaders (conference, college, convention) are warning against this sin. *Marriage is for life.* “But I know so-n-so…” May I be your friend & tell you bluntly, you’re not responsible for so-n-so; you’re responsible for your soul. To marry again is OK but please stay away from the divorced guy. You can (in God’s will) do much better. – 7/14/20


“Following Christ is a hard task. It is a warfare.”

– Wilfred Grenfell, MD


Please sir/ma’am, if you love Jesus, your first allegiance is/has to be, Him. (Not some “cause” “party” “nation” which claims to be “christian.”) What Would Jesus Do? While He walked earth He slapped no one (though He was slapped). He killed no one (though He was killed). As His loyal followers we may be misused (please don’t think I want such). We may even be killed for Him (again, don’t think I desire to be a martyr.) I fear too many Christians will struggle & then give their allegiance to men. In doing so they’ll hurt the cause of Jesus & die on the wrong side. Pray. Obey. Pray. – 7/15/20



The Bible is rich in lives of sinner and saint.

It gives details of cultures, both ancient and quaint.

Makes requirements (not for the finicky or faint).

Speaks of the Holy Spirit – not some evil “haint.”

Encourages the “rosy,” natural look – not paint.

The greatest tangible entity in the wide world is One phenomenal piece of Literature – the Holy Bible. No book has ever compared to this Timeless Text – nor ever will. This God-breathed Book contains many things among which are criteria for assessing ALL lesser literatures: “Whatsoever things are true… honest… just…pure…lovely…of good report…if…any virtue…any praise think on these things”(Php 4.8). – 7/16/20


“If I don’t practice it,

I don’t believe it.”

– Paul Harvey Life Motto!


Psa 119.74

“They that fear thee will be glad when they see me;

because I have hoped in thy word.”


Have you read the Bible through? If you can read, you do not want to face of Judge of all the earth & have to admit that you were so “busy” running to & fro, to read the Book He inspired penned for you to read. Is the Bible easy reading? Some parts are easier & some parts are harder, but let not that stop you from reading the Most Classic Book in the English language, past, present & future. – 7/16/20

“But my God shall supply all your need

according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”


“…True fear comes from faith;

false fear comes from doubt…”

– Blaise Pascal


33 of 46 “…Pride & arrogancy…do I hate”(Pro 8.13).

Eze 30.6 Thus saith the LORD; They also that uphold Egypt shall fall; and the PRIDE of her power shall come down: from the tower of Syene shall they fall in it by the sword, saith the Lord GOD.


“Men often take their imagination for their heart;

& they believe they are converted as soon as they think of being converted.”

– Blaise Pascal



God is Light,

And in Him is no darkness at all.

Has been true e’re since man fell

And it was true before the fall.

God is Light.

Oh, what truths in those words penned by John.

God is Light,

In the past, the present, – and beyond!

– eab, July 1976


Rejoice With Us! Six yrs ago today, after purchase completed, I picked my wife up & carried her over the threshold into our little bungalow. Who ever heard of a poor pastor (& poorer Christian sch. man) paying cash for a house? It’s small (little over 1300’ sq.) & needed a lot of TLC but it’s been Debt Free since 2013. Praise the Lord. New roof & porches (EABII did free labor, we paid materials), 14 new, argon-filled double-pane widows, 14” insulation (labor by s-n-l,Daryl) above ceiling & many other improvements. We’re so happy with our like-country location, telling God or each other nearly everyday of our gratefulness. Again, Praise the Lord. -7/30/19


1Ti 2.9

“…That women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness & sobriety;

not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;”


Never accept the modernistic idea that holiness of heart can *rationally* be separated from holiness of life. Once you convince yourself that the outward appearance of “x” doesn’t have to agree with teachings of Paul & Peter, you’ve lost one of the criteria for distinguishing or “trying the spirits” & are more likely to be eternally lost. -7/29/19


“Spirituality is not how far we are from the world

but how close we are to God.”

– James Plank, sermon, 2/3/00


One of the questions evangelists on foreign soil face is – how much of what the nationals do/think is cultural versus, how much is religious? Culture & religion can overlap in subtle ways. A genuinely converted national can more easily draw the line between these two than the evangelists even after yrs on the field. Ready. For. This? – – – we Americans face the same question: how much of what swirls around us is cultural vs. how much has (hidden?) religious roots? Only the soul fully committed to heaven, the soul who loves God with all his heart, is willing to cut away what some “say” is mere culture but he (the saint) senses it has anti-christ tendencies. – 7/30/19


“We have difference of opinion but don’t ever

take the matter of unity lightly.”
