Elephant In the Room

by Ladd

The Sutherland Springs shootings have left a long, deep scrape across the heart of America. Regardless of our spiritual beliefs or lack of them, everyone was deeply and emotionally stunned that such an atrocity could happen within a house of worship on a peaceful Sunday morning. Inevitably questions arose—where was God in all this? How […]

Breathe the Sweet Air of Jesus…

by Ladd

Just a quick reminder that Ruth and I will be at New Life Church, Oshawa, Ontario, September 23 to help celebrate its twenty-fifth anniversary. I will be speaking at 11 o’clock and again in the afternoon and Ruth will be singing at both services. If you are in the Oshawa area, please do come out […]

The Love of God Is Beyond Imagination!

by Ladd

The more I read and study the Bible the more I find the love of God to be beyond imagination. The children of Israel never stopped complaining and rebelling against God’s directions and leadings throughout the wilderness experience. Yet God never gave up on them or turned his back on them. Once they entered the […]

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38-39 When we think […]

Warfare for Your Mind

by Ladd

I’ve been hit between the eyes a few times in my life and every one has hurt. Now, I’m not talking literally, but in a spiritual sense when I say that there are times when a truth just bangs into your forehead with such power that you can’t excuse it or ignore it. This happened […]

I’ve been reading the Nonviolent Atonement by Denny Weaver and I have to admit it is an eye opener. In today’s post I’m not going to go into the assertions and conclusions that Professor Weaver makes, but I assure you I will be writing on his work in a number of upcoming posts. What I […]

The Biggest Lie

by Ladd

Without a doubt the biggest lie we tell ourselves spiritually is that if we change God will love us. The reason for this lie is that we project onto God what we feel about ourselves. We know the sinfulness of our thoughts, the poor motives for our actions, the indifference to things that are important […]

Spiritual Slump

Have you ever gone through a dry spell in your Bible study or prayer life? It is something, I think, we all face at some time or another and to be honest it is quite a sad feeling. We long to reconnect to God and get the old spiritual motor humming again but instead we […]

Christ Without Christianity

peeling bark

“Christ without Christianity” my friend said the other night while we were talking. I was picking his brain about a Café that some friends were opening a couple of evenings a month. No doubt about his suggestion would attract the curious, but there was more to the name than being a simple “hook.” I believe […]

I started out writing a different blog this morning but after writing it I felt impressed that I was to write on love instead. I don’t know who this post is for but if you are the one I pray that you are able to trust in God’s love a little more fully from reading […]
