It's a Generation Thing

Dr. J.T. ParishIt was in the late 1960’s when I first went into a church and heard a congregation singing scripture verses instead of from the hymnal. “This is the day that the Lord has made, we will rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 119:24) they continued to sing: “Thy loving kingdom is better than life… My life will praise Thee, thus, will I bless Thee, I will lift up my hands in Thy name.” (Psalm 63:3-4)

They all had little catchy tunes. I tried to sing along and reserve judgment about whether I liked this, or if this was just the latest religious fad that would soon pass off the scene. Like it or not, it was just the beginning of the new trend of choruses in worship.



Dr. J.T. ParishDid I ever tell you about the Australian man who wore himself out trying to throw his boomerang away? Many things in life keep coming back to us like the boomerang. Perhaps you have heard the saying, “He got back in his own little half-bushel what he gave out.”

The Bible tells us that we will be judged exactly as we judge others and we will be forgiven as we forgive others. Wisdom would suggest that we could go easy on ourselves by refraining from judging and being quick to forgive others. The harshest judgment usually comes from the most rotten motives. None of us know enough to judge others.


Lessons from the school lunch table

Austin Johnson

I sat down to eat lunch with a group of boys at an elementary school in town on Monday. I told one particular boy that I would come to see him at school so I had to make good on my promise. After we all got our food and sat down at the lunch table I asked the boys if they would like to pray with me before eating. One kid at the end of the table promptly responded, “No!” I was a bit shocked and almost at a loss for words. I mean who turns down an invitation to pray, even among kids? Thankfully, one kid across the lunch table fired back with a “Yes.” But then the “No” kid spoke over everyone at the table saying, “Who even prays anymore?”


The Decalogue

Dr. J.T. ParishWhat about the Ten Commandments? They Exist! They are God’s Commands. God gave them to Moses, and yes, they were written in stone. They were not just a bright idea that Moses had. They are 10 Commandments not 10 suggestions. Through the Ten Commandments God told us the kind of behavior that pleases Him.


In the Beginning

Dr. J.T. ParishUntil recent years most scientists believed the universe is eternal. It had no beginning, it simply always existed. Then Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity indicated otherwise. The only problem was Einstein was so set on his belief in an eternal universe that he questioned his own theory and came up with another theory called the “Fudge Factor.” Not only was the fudge factor proven to be wrong, Einstein made a trip to California to see for himself through the Hubble Telescope the visible evidence that the universe had a beginning.


Overcoming Fear

Dr. J.T. ParishThe third horse on the Devil’s Merry-Go-Round is “Fear”. The Bible tells us 365 times not to fear, once for every day of the year. Fear is especially prevalent during times of uncertainty and upheavals. At the beginning of World War II, President Roosevelt said, “We have nothing to fear, but fear itself.”

Jesus predicted that fear would be prominent the last days! “Men’s hearts failing them for fear and for looking after those things coming upon the earth.”
