- Over the past few years my blog has been visited by people from all over the world. Very few know me, or of me, they simply are looking information concerning the Bible and discover my blog. After many years of intense study and teaching, I've come to believe we are vulnerable to misguided and incorrect teaching if we don't understand for ourselves the teaching of God's Word. My 'hot buttons' are - grace, sovereignty, exhortations and sanctification. If you understand these basic principles of Scripture, and apply them to daily life, you will understand what it means to have peace, joy and absolute security in any circumstance.

I WASN'T THERE
A few years ago, Melodye, a very special lady, the wife of our retired pastor, sent me this poem...
I WASN'T THERE WHEN CHRIST WAS BORN
I did not see the virgin birth
and yet I know it's true.
The things of God are acts of faith
when we are born anew.
I did not hear the angels sing
that night in Bethlehem,
Nor was I there when Magi came
to bring their gifts to Him.
Within my heart I know it's true
that Christ is God's own Son,
for He has warmed my cold, cold heart
by things He has done.
I wasn't there when Christ was born
and yet He knew my name!
God sent His Son into the world
and we've never been the same.
