Identity Crisis

Dr. J.B. Hixson
This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk....But you have not so learned Christ, if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness. (Ephesians 4:17-24) I came across an interesting ...

Things That Matter

Dr. J.B. Hixson
Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. (Col 3:2) Lately I have been thinking about the importance of perspective.  In many ways, our contentment or pleasure in life comes down to our perspective.  If we focus our thoughts and attention on the trials of life—all that is negative, disappointing, frustrating, hurtful, difficult, stressful—we are likely to experience only minimal joy as these negative aspects of life eclipse what is really important.  But on the other hand if we focus our thoughts and attention on things ...

Dr. J.B. Hixson
God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. …Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! (Psalm 46:1, 10) Children can say the funniest things.  A few years ago, we took our children to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. By nearly unanimous vote, the favorite event was bull riding.  There were only two cowboys who managed to hang on for the entire eight seconds.  What fun it was to see the look in the kids’ eyes and the expressions on their faces as they ...

Pope Dangerous

Dr. Michael Halsey
Villanova University defines a Roman Catholic homily as “a scripturally-based reflection which provides food for thought about the challenges of living as a Catholic in today’s busy and hectic world.” (We take exception to that definition in its use of the term, “scripturally based.”) Read on. With that definition and caveat under our belts, we note that Pope Dangerous gave a homily at his inaugural mass on Tuesday March 19, as a crowd of 150,000-200,000 listened. The recent resignation of the previous Pope, the election of a new one and ...

WILD BOARS LOOSE IN THE VINEYARD!

Dr. Michael Halsey
They (that ubiquitous group that rules the world) say the name of the game in Washington is power. Our elected leaders have enough of (our) money and theirs to fund the lifestyles of generations of their children and grandchildren who will rise up and call them blessed. Since they have stuffed their offshore bank accounts, tax dodges, and tax shelters with their lucre, they turn themselves to the acquisition of power. The power to control others is a heady wine, which has intoxicated many an elected official and a bureaucrat.  (an unelected ...
