God and doG

I just saw the greatest video. You know our dogs love us unconditionally. They are patient with us, forgive us when we are unkind, wait for us to come home and most of all can make us happy when we are down. Hmmmm, sounds like God!


God Bless You!

As graduation ceremonies were under way, there was a stern warning that this class would NOT pray during the commencements, not by choice, but because of a recent court ruling prohibiting it however…

TV Series Mocks Christians, Undermines Liberty

ABC-TV has decided that it can take direct aim at Christians with what amounts to hate speech. This is the premise of its new program GCB (which stands for Good Christian B*****es). We need to fight back.

This program ridicules Christians, Christianity, the Bible, and Christian symbols in ways that would be unthinkable if aimed

Happy Easter

Ok, I think most of you have heard of Rebecca Black and her Friday video. Personally, I think for such a young teen, she did a pretty darn good job. After all her parents spent a pretty penny for that video.

But that is neither here nor there. My church, Calvary Church of Santa Ana,

What is Easter?

On Easter Sunday, most Christians celebrate the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Did you know that this is typically the most well-attended Sunday service of the year next to Christmas. Sorry to say, but that is sad. What happens the rest of the year to those Christians that do not attend? Notice I said

Twas the Month Before Christmas…

Twas the month before Christmas When all through our land, Not a Christian was praying Nor taking a stand. See the PC Police had taken away, The reason for Christmas – no one could say.

How Do God’s Ten Commandments Apply Today?

Many people today feel that God's Ten Commandments are no longer valid because they do not apply to our current society. They look to the Ten Commandments as being outdated and full of inflammatory language which doesn't sit well with our politically-correct viewpoint. The Ten Commandments are also considered by many people to have been

We Did it…Christmas is Back

You did it! There's no question that your taking time to get involved has influenced Dominion Services and Richmond, Virginia, parade organizers to reverse an earlier decision to replace "Christmas" with "holiday."

Late yesterday afternoon, after thousands of emails and hundreds of phone calls to Dominion, parade organizers posted a statement on their website stating,

City bans ‘Christmas’ in favor of ‘holiday’ parade – War against Christmas starting already

The city of Richmond, Virginia, has turned coward because the new sponsor of its annual parade wants to ban the word "Christmas."

When Dominion, an energy company, took over sponsorship of the parade, it told the city it no longer wanted to use "Christmas" as part of the parade name. Instead, Dominion said it will

New Creation

This video is from my church, Calvary Church of Santa Ana service on April 25th. I felt very privileged to be able to sing with our worship pastor, Victor, on this song. This was a very risky visual arts thing to do in a church, but it really worked and it was extremely

Easter 2010

What is metamorphosis?

Most all of us learned that extremely long word in or around the 4th grade, long before it could roll off our tongues easily and certainly before we could understand the complexity of what it is that we call metamorphosis.

In fact, it is my belief, no not my belief, I

Copywork E-Book

House Upon a Rock is a copywork book for Mathew 7:24-29. I feel it is made more for upper elementary grades, 4-6, due to the lining on the pages and length of the copywork. It is only 8 pages that are beautifully illustrated in back and white. It contains 3 pages of copywork plus

Do You Doubt God?

Just once wouldn’t you love for someone to simply show you the evidence for God’s existence? No arm-twisting. No statements of, “You just have to believe.” Well, here is an attempt to candidly offer some of the reasons which suggest that God exists. But first consider this. If a person opposes even the possibility of there being a God, then any evidence can be rationalized or explained away. It is like if someone refuses to believe that people have walked on the moon, then no amount of information is going to change their thinking. Photographs of astronauts walking on the moon, interviews with the astronauts, moon rocks…all the evidence would be worthless, because the person has already concluded that people cannot go to the moon.

Ahh, it is that time of year once more. VBS time. My kids have already been to one VBS this year at another church. VBS is not about getting rid of the kids for a half of a day, but about reaching out to your kids un-churched friends and the un-churched community around us. VBS

Bible Study

OK, today I finally can answer the question of how we got along with beasts and why they never ate us.
