I highly recommend the “God of Wonders”; it is by far the best documentary I've watched concerning the creation from a Biblical world-view.  The detailed graphics in video production are as good as anything produced by PBS or National Geographic.  Yes!  It really is great!  Although I would recommend you make the purchase of the DVD here, you can actually watch the video on their website by chapters; and now you can watch it on YouTube.&nb...Read More

2011 and last year, 2012 were very difficult years in my life.  Filled with great pain! My wife and I endured the most painful thing one can endure, the death of an adult child. Our Charity Hope went to be with Jesus Christ our Lord on April 24, 2012. I feel like I am just now coming out of a fog of grief.  Understandably I have not put energy into this blog site, blogging or writing.  As a parent, you never fully recover; you learn a new 'normal' much lik...Read More

This post is merely a small critique on Clark Whitten’s “Pure Grace” book and his doctrines that led to the closing of Exodus International and the “revelation” Alan Chambers suffers under.

We Are Created in the Image of God—Imago Dei! Communicating the term “sexual orientation” for a person’s identity gives an indication of viability to behavior outside of God’s original intent for human sexuality.  I have never liked the idea of communicating “sexual orientation” as our sexual direction, or how one is created sexually.  “Sexual orientation” communicates a distorted truth based upon attract...Read More

"The Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him, in those who hope in His mercy." Psalm 147:11   Coram Deo is Latin, translated as a phrase - “in the presence of God” from Christian Church theology which communicates the idea of Christians living in the presence, under the authority, and to the honor and glory of God at all times. Coram Deo is living in a cognitive state of being before the face of God, to live in the presence of God is to understand ...Read More

–Note: Stephen Black, Executive Director of First Stone Ministries, attended the Oklahoma City Gay Pride Celebration June 26, 2011 raising a few eyebrows and provoking a few questions. This is Stephen’s report. “Why on Earth would you be out at the gay pride celebration Stephen? You have no business being at a gay pride parade!”   At first, it may seem reasonable to rebuke a minister of the Gospel and the director of an “ex-gay&r...Read More
