We Elected a Sinner

We did it again. We elected a sinner. When are we going to learn? In fact we elected 435 sinners out of 435 seats in the House of Representatives. And a bunch of Sin-ators. You get the point?

According to Daniel 4:25, “the Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and gives them to anyone He wishes.” God raises up earth’s leaders, including those in the USA, which means He puts sinners in places of leadership. Some are aggressively hostile against Him and goodness, some are humble, faithful. Most (?) are somewhere in between.

Spirit Empowered Mission

There is a direct correlation between this small story from Ricky’s life and your life as a Christian: You need a purpose for living. This need is not limited to you as an individual, but extends corporately to the church as a whole, including your local body. The good news is that you have been given this purpose by God himself.

Building A Healthy Multi-Ethnic Church

This is one of those books that is truly hard to put down! It is the story of Mark and Linda’s call to Little Rock to serve at Fellowship Bible Church. While he enjoyed his ministry at Fellowship Bible, Mark began to notice that while Little Rock has a very multi-ethnic population, the church he served was predominately Caucasian (white).

In Memoriam: John Sailhamer (1946-2017)

Yesterday morning I heard the news that John Sailhamer has passed away. Dr. Sailhamer taught Old Testament at Western for several years, and many in the Western community have been impacted significantly by his friendship and teaching. He had been battling Parkinson’s disease and was cared for faithfully by his sweet wife, Patty. Though we rejoice that his suffering is over, we are also deeply saddened by his death.
