“I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge & my fortress:

my God; in him will I trust.”


“What church or congregation has any respect for a minister who trims his preaching to the iching ears of the monied man in his church.”

– Carl McIntire


When’s the last time your church sang “Almost Persuaded” or “Jesus I Come” or “Lord, I’m Coming Home” or “Pass Me Not” or “There’s a Great Day Coming” or “Where He Leads Me”? Why are we no longer (or very seldom) singing songs which make people think about heaven, hell, or their souls? – Sept 2020


“Any mantra (like the Catholic rosary) violates Christ’s command to

‘Use not vain repetitions as the heathen’(Mt 6:7).”

– T A McMahon


“God & country” is not in the Bible. Whoever first said “God & country” (or said it so that it *stuck*) introduced a catchy term. People link these two together but you should question this non-Biblical bond. God is Eternal – no country lasts more than a few hundred yrs. God is All-powerful – no country has a fraction of His power. To attach these two is to lower God & to raise a hunk of the earth He created – putting “them” on equal footing. Please stop using this term – it’s degrading to the Almighty. – 9/27/20



I must live in the place, where Thy glorious face,

Is seen from day to day.

Where the eternal essence, of Thine only presence,

Doth not fade away.


Let me sense, let me know, while still here below,

Heaven in my unworthy soul.

Place Gilead’s healing balm, replace storm with Thy calm

And make me every-wit whole!

– eab, Sep. ’81


Followers of Christ hold the Bible as The All-Important Book, with emphasis on the New Testament. Followers of cults (well-known & widely accepted or little-know & weird) don’t respect the Bible as paramount. They may mention It or have their own version of It printed, but watch closely. It is the Bible PLUS the sayings of their cult leaders & their emphasis may be more Old Testament than New. – 9/27/20


“The play-house became the temple of England.

Drama could noy be exhibited, nor privately read without blushes.”

– Able Stevens


Luk 16.22b – 23a

“…The rich man also died & was buried;

“…In hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments,”


Some people became known at an early age because of a last name. Other people excelled (in a sport-crazed-age) at a game & gained recognition. Still others achieved academic awards, climbed “corporate ladders,” or became rich. And, sadly, some gained a name by just playing a part in a hollywood flick. All of the above die. If they didn’t renounce the world & believe Christ for forgiveness, they went to hell. Now an opinion – Hell may be a place where no-one knows another’s name, a place where fame is gone, a place even hotter if one was “known” on earth. Please leave your fame – do not go to that flame. – 9/27/20


It does not take a true Christian long to scent & detect

the ‘wild gourd in the pot.’”

– George  Straub

“I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress:

my God; in him will I trust.”


‘Tis Anniversary Week * #5. God directed us differently than He did those who stayed 3-5 decades. We’re happy with His guidance. We were 11 yrs near the Great Smoky National Park (can’t tell the # of times been around Cades Cove). We were over 3 ½ yrs, 50 miles from N’Leans (got to cross flat Lake Pontchartrain, be on it shrimping, & visit the French Qrt). Spent 4 yrs pastoring real cowboys in SD (visited the Faces many times & help in branding). Were about 2 yrs in AZ (multiple visits to Grand Canyon). Had privilege of pastoring in Canada & seeing “the States” through this neighbor’s eyes. God Lead Every Step.

“All that Calvary provived for us, judgment will require from us.”

– Millard Downing, 6/18/99


What is a tattoo? A mark. What kind of mark? A mark of attachment. Attachment to whom? Ah, that may be the rub. Look at the lives of those who are the most “inked.” Do you want to spend eternity with those whose lives/words/deaths are (somewhat) reflected in the words & symbols inked on them?

MRS. LOT    

Can there be any doubt, Mrs. Lot could pout,

To always have her way?

The angels pulled her bodily out,

But the affections inside would not be denied;

The real Mrs. Lot wanted to stay.

Mat 7.21

“Not every one that saith unto me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter into the kingdom of heaven;

but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”


You lost a close friend or perhaps a mate. They had sang in church, taught Sunday Sch., preached, were possibly a denominational leader. A minister consoling you “assumed” them in heaven, the preacher at the funeral “assumed” them in heaven & you’ve “assumed . . . Don’t. Did their life match God’s Guideline for Living? (I’ve prayed for 2 who lost mates NOT to assume the other made it.) Please do not stop short of doing what you /know/ God wants from YOU, regardless of how “So-n-So” lived. Death is serious.

“…We seldom find Christian miracles denied except

by those who have abandoned some part of the Christian doctrine.”

– C S Lewis, /Miracles/


Heaven is no man’s “right.” Heaven is 100% under God’s control & is His throne. (“Heaven is my throne…” Act 7.49). Our only hope of going to heaven is to receive & respond to His Royal Invitation. Have you seen yourself as a sinner yet, & confessed to God in Jesus name? Have you let God know that accepting His Invitation is the absolute number 1 (#1) item on your life-list? Get serious with God.
