You Can’t Argue with a Four Year Old

You simply cannot argue with a four year old. Well, actually you can, but you can’t win the argument. It’s simply best to leave well enough alone. I learned this amazing truth when Brad and Emily (my daughter) Kirby and their two children came to visit this summer. Reagan is eight years old and becoming…

Jumping from 25,000 Feet

You may not know the amazing story of Luke Aikins, but you should. It really is almost unbelievable. In fact, it would be unbelievable except for the fact that it actually happened. You can watch this event unfolding by clicking here. What did Luke Aikens do? He jumped from an airplane at 25,000 feet without…

Do You Have Character?

Sometimes we wonder if we know what character looks like. At other times, we wonder if character even matters. Ted Turner famously denigrated the ten commandments a number of years ago. He decided they were outmoded in America. Maybe he was thinking about things like “Thou Shalt Not commit adultery.” With as much intellectual property…

What Happens If Your Home Floods?

You may live somewhere that flooding seems very unlikely. If that’s the case, you may be wondering what happens in a flood. If your home or business floods from rising water (and not from a burst pipe or something similar) your home is not covered by your regular homeowner’s insurance. In order to have your…

You Must Answer This Question

As a church of the Lord Jesus Christ, there comes a time when we must answer a basic question. Deal with this question and you start dealing with the heart of your church. Will we be the church of the elder brother or the church of the loving father? We all know the parable of…

A Stranger in America

By: Waylon Bailey ~ Do you feel like a stranger in America? Not long ago, I heard someone say those exact words. They said it doesn’t seem like I know the country anymore. I feel like a stranger. If that’s the way you feel, the First Epistle of Peter is for you. It’s for you…

Historic Louisiana Flooding

It’s not that we aren’t used to water. We have water everywhere. It’s that we’ve simply never (at least in 100 years) seen this much water before. How much water have we had? Most of the affected area (roughly between Hammond to Lafayette or from Interstate 55 to Interstate 49) had over 2 feet of…
