    When I moved to Western Australia I was still driving Californa style. Even though most California freeways are posted for 65 miles per hour, if I kept it under 80 I never got a ticket.

    The Aussies take their speed limits more seriously. After getting five speeding tick...

    Does Jesus bring salvation? Of course! Can He do all things on our behalf? Yes. He’s the Lord Creator of the universe.

    Is Christ's grace sufficient? Yes, He died for us. He shed his precious blood so we could receive eternal life. We repent not to become more holy but s...

    "Prayer can move the hand of God!" So says my great friend and mentor Freda Wiggins.

    “Forgive us, oh Lord. for thinking prayer is a waste of time. Without prayer, our work is a waste of time.” Scottish preacher Peter Marshall uttered these words from his pulpit in Washi...

    When my daughter was very young I accused her of lying. She was befuddled and had no idea what I was talking about. Children view the world through eyes of innocence. They faithfully trust and dance to the beat of a different drum.

    Oh! that we all could possess the inno...

    Is God the provider of your personal income and is he calling you to be a good steward of that income?

    I want to be a good steward and have come to realize that doesn’t just mean investing wisely or being a spendthrift. Being a good steward means I don’t own my income b...

    Character defects, we've all got em, right? In my humble opinion, my own defects don't seem so bad. Yeah, right. 

    The first thing that can be done about my bad behavior is to ask God for forgiveness. I also need to make amends to people I've hurt, so long as it doesn’t...

    I’ve checked out a number of so-called spiritual paths over the years. At 18 I read Carlos Castaneda’s books about a Mexican shaman. In my early 20s, it was Richard Alpert’s “Be Here Now."

    In my 40s I studied the Bhagavad Gita and attended lectures at a local Hare Krish...

    Have you ever had a blood brother or sister? As kids, we sometimes cut ourselves until we bled and then pressed the cuts together in an oath of loyalty and commitment.

    I recall feeling challenged by this activity. Did I really want to cut myself (which hurts) and create...

    I was challenged recently to define truth. My immediate answer was, “the bible is the truth.” I could just as easily have said, “Jesus is the truth.” The man questioning me shook his head, got up and left the men's group without saying another word.

    Maybe this guy consi...
