The children of Israel were suffering under bondage from the Midianites and that oppression finally became so destructive that in desperation the people cried out to God. (Judges 6:6) The question that automatically arises is, “how did Israel end up in a position that enslaved them, once again, to a foreign nation? In Judges 6:8-10 […]

The Sutherland Springs shootings have left a long, deep scrape across the heart of America.

I just returned from vacation and realized it has been a long time since I sent out my last post. I woke yesterday morning to the headlines of the worse mass shooting in United States history with over two-hundred and fifty people killed or wounded in the Los Vegas shooting. We live in a world […]
