  • On Higher Ground

    The Lord can work on their hearts even in prison


    “Mr. Bill! Can you help me?!” cried poor Shannon. We called her “Little Shannon” because of her petite four foot-11 inch frame. Her pale face, accentuated by her short blonde hair, was a look of horror. It seems a spider had crawled up onto the drive-up window, and she was deathly afraid of the ugly arachnids. Before I could even discern her trouble, one of the other girls had dispatched the creature, and life returned to normal.

  • Faithful Words

    Church membership problems


    “Unto the angel of the church of Thyatira write . . . I know thy works” (See Revelation 2:18-29, RSV).

  • Spiritually Speaking

    Do we have a sure foundation?


    With so many things coming to pass before our very eyes, is the church asleep? Are we, who call ourselves Christians, letting our light shine? Do we clearly at all times separate the dark from the light in such a manner that others may see? I am referring right now to you and me. It is time to make up our mind to stand firm.

    As we look around we see our society meshing into something gray. Nothing absolute, no foundation; whatever feels good do it. There is no white or black.
