Almost Dead

March 29, 2011

“Happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not the chastening of the Almighty” Job 5:17 Monday, March 30, 2009 I almost had an appointment with death. My life at that point had become embroiled in disobedience to the Lord. He was trying to get my attention, but I wasn’t listening. I was pastoring […]

Right Turn, Clyde

March 28, 2011

Do you remember the Clint Eastwood movie he made with an ape named Clyde? There’s a scene where some bikers harass him at an intersection. Clint says to the ape, “Right turn, Clyde.” The ape sticks his arm out the truck window smacking the biker and causing a domino effect. Right and Left. A simple […]

Spring Has Sprung

March 27, 2011

The calendar states that Spring began on March 20th. Many people noticed signs of Spring before the official start date. Buds on trees, warming temps, birds chirping … are all indicators that Winter has passed. But that does not mean Winter goes quietly. Having lived in the Northeast most of my life I can tell […]

Speaking of wanting attention…

Apparently he does not like the attention he got. Maybe he’ll consider that in the future when pontificating about his superiority over those with whom he disagrees. BUT I doubt it. One can hope, though…

The Bishop, Sabbath, and Altar Calls

March 24, 2011

David M Coe pastors the┬áBeth Haven Baptist Church in Morgatown, WV. He and I “met” a few years ago on an internet forum. We were at odds with one another on most issues. At one point he was obsessed with a YouTube pastor who had apparently influenced some college students to leave┬áBeth Haven. Now, I […]

The Altar Call

March 14, 2011

I grew up in a Dutch Reformed church. Services were dry and lifeless. It was simply assumed that if you were there you were a Christian. The only time the gospel was ever explained and an invitation to accept Christ offered was by a guest missionary couple teaching at VBS. I remember the minister telling […]

Honoring A Bonehead

March 9, 2011

Yes! You read the title correctly. The Bible tells us to give honor to whom it is due. Yesterday on the DRIVE @ 5 I honored a bonehead pastor. Hear it in the D5 Archives.

Over Taken or Taken Over?

March 8, 2011

“If a man be over taken in a fault…” I was reading a pastor’s interpretation of Galatians 6:1 and it got me thinking. He basically stated the word overtaken means to be suddenly caught by surprise. He was defending his position of not feeling any obligation to restore fallen brethren. That’s fine but don’t misinterpret […]

My Wife and Verses

March 8, 2011

My wife has a habit of placing Bible verses around the house in strategic locations (ie: places I will see them like the fridge door). These are usually motivational verses about the Lord’s goodness and blessing and favor toward His children … US! Over the weekend one of my children took my things from the […]
