The debates continue to rage in regard to evolution and creation in our schools. What is interesting is that the evolutionist does not tolerate both sides being presented…this coming from the liberals who are always talking about tolerance! This group has already gotten the Bible out of schools. This group fears the Bible more than anything. They would rather give our children condoms, aid them in abortions and embrace homosexual perversion rather than let the Bible be free in the classroom. You talk about Bible phobia!
I wonder if man has outsmarted himself. With technology continuing to improve, the world-wide web, Facebook and Twitter; tablets and exquisite cell phones, interplanetary travel, the ability of friend or foe to know where you are and what you are doing at all times, can the mark of the beast be far behind?
"Thou answeredst them, O LORD our God: thou wast a God that forgavest them, though thou tookest vengeance of their INVENTIONS" Psalms 99:8 (caps mine) "Thus they provoked him to anger with their INVENTIONS and the plague brake in upon them." Psalms 106:29 (caps mine)
"Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own INVENTIONS." Psalms 106:39 (caps mine)
"Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many INVENTIONS." Ecclesiastes 7:29 (caps mine)
“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,  And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Every month I promise myself that I will just write about good things, try not to be controversial and be positive like the popular preachers are. Something always jars me back to reality and the seriousness of God’s calling. Five years ago doctors diagnosed me with a rapid growing lung cancer and gave me a year to live. God Almighty changed that, gave me additional duties and this year the doctors announced me cancer free. Seven times each week God lets me stand before different classes and tell them about His Son. I get to serve as a jail chaplain and a police/fire chaplain.
The LOOPS newsletter Reflections goes to 36 states and 6 foreign countries. We have over 300 students (mostly inmates) enrolled in our Bible correspondence courses. Needless to say, our little office handles a lot of correspondence. Much of our time is used in answering questions. These questions range from deeper theological questions to inquiries about the contemporary church movement. Many people seem to think all inmates are backward and stupid, but believe me, that is not the case.
I would like to take this space this month to pay a tribute to a great friend.
David, the second king of Israel was in a literal fight for his life. His favorite son, Absalom, had attempted to usurp David’s kingdom for his own. Absalom knew that he must kill David to do so and was in the process of hunting David down and killing him in battle. God intervened, snagged Absalom by his long hair with one of His trees, where one of David’s men killed Absalom. David was a fugitive from his own throne while Absalom was designing his demise.
The latest Pew Poll is out and again there is more falling away from the “old paths.” America has just celebrated their 233 birthday, farther removed than ever from her founding fathers. Men may debate the Christianity of our forefathers. Were they Deists or Christians, etc? What we all know and is not debatable, is that they all exhibited a tremendous amount of God-consciousness. Every where you look, you find the hand of God recognized by our forefathers. The majority of them recognized Jesus Christ as the Son of God, Who died, was buried and rose again.
Over 28 years have passed since I walked into the Big Spring Federal Prison Camp to facilitate a weekly Bible study. I was totally unprepared for what I was about to experience. Standing at a podium, lecturing on some Biblical truth was not to be. It would, indeed, be a study...sleeves rolled up; point and counterpoint; give and take; back and forth...and extremely profitable for all who weathered the first volley.
