5 Questions to Know God’s Will for Your Life

cards

Don't you wish you were one of the chosen? You know, the ones who always seem to know God's will in life. They get a vision, a word of wisdom, an open door, an invoice -- something magical that let's them know God's will for their life -- and for yours. Kind of makes you want to just pick a card -- any card. But if you're like me, a long-time Christ-follower who has counseled thousands, you've stumbled around and stubbed a few toes trying to figure out God's will for your life. I'm … [Read more...]

Will the Hobbit Inspire Your Own Unexpected Journey?

I confess it. I think I may be the only person left who has not seen Peter Jackson's latest rendition of J.R.R. Tolkien's classic tale The Hobbit. Usually I would be among the first at the theater. I made the midnight showing for The Return of the King -- the sound cutting out during the scenes in Mount Doom made it especially memorable. I've watched the DVD versions of The Lord of the Rings countless times with my children. I've read Tolkien's Middle Earth saga multiple times, even … [Read more...]

What Star Wars Can Teach Us about the Fiscal Cliff Fiasco

I know. We've just about had it with the whole fiscal cliff fiasco. Maybe that's why most of us want the words "fiscal cliff" banned from the English language. We should be frustrated with our national leaders. In the words of my own Congressman LaTourette: "This is disgusting, and everybody involved should be embarrassed," said Rep. Steve LaTourette (R-Ohio), marching glumly from a GOP conference meeting in the House Monday evening. "It's not even small ball -- it's a pingpong ball," he said of … [Read more...]

Election 2012: 5 Things I Don’t Understand about Christians Who Voted for Obama

"God is in control." Well, duh. I've heard this refrain reminding of God's sovereignty countless times now since Election 2012 as a mantra to console evangelical Christians and religious conservatives bemoaning the recent win by Barack Obama. Contrary to what some seem to have concluded from my posts "It's the End of America as We Know It"  or "We Are All Victims Now, Mr. President," I have never doubted for a moment that God was, is, and will always be in control. But Scripture also … [Read more...]

Presidential Failure, My Kingdom Journey to Serve in Guam

When I answered the call to train leaders in Guam this coming week, I didn't notice the proximity to the election. I've been occupied the last few days preparing to serve ministry leaders in Guam. I'm flying there tomorrow so posting will likely be thin leading up to the election. Some will applaud my absence, no doubt, as evidence continues to surface that the President is likely the one who refused to send in help to our heroic Americans on the ground. The 3 AM phone call came. Obama voted … [Read more...]

Don’t Expect Much from Third Presidential Debate Unless…

Even though I suggest you watch the third Presidential Debate -- hopefully the sit-down format won't revive the incessant smiling and interrupting of the last such format -- I really don't expect much to emerge that will change anything at this point in the race. Romney knows foreign policy much better than most give him credit for. Having followed him closely for the last six years and read his book No Apology -- which he wrote himself -- I am confident he'll be able to easily convince the … [Read more...]

Benghazigate: Obama Administration Cover-up to Rival Watergate?

More than a month after terrorists attacked the US embassy in Lybia on Sept. 11 and assassinated the US ambassador and three others, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton now takes full responsibility for the security failures that permitted the attack.  But the questions remain as to why a YouTube video was blamed for an obvious terror attack. To date no one  that I have found has taken blame for the Obama Administration -- and the President himself -- calling the attacks random and blaming … [Read more...]

DNC Chair: Lybia Terror Attack Statements Wrong, Not False

More evidence mounts that the attack on the US embassy in Lybia on Sept. 11, 2012, and assassination of the US ambassador and three other Americans was a deliberate terrorist attack. In response,  Democratic National Committee Chair claimed on CNN with Piers Morgan yesterday that initial Obama administration statements citing a YouTube video as the cause of the violence were wrong, but not intentionally so, which means they were not technically false. Even CNN's Piers Morgan disagreed. Watch … [Read more...]
