Woman Refuses to Pay Mortgage for 25 Years ___I read an article yesterday about a 71 year old lady who has been living in her house for the last 25 years and hasn’t made a single payment on the mortgage. That’s right. Since 1985, Patsy Campbell hasn’t made a payment on the $63,803 mortgage because she claims that improper transfers of the mortgage between banks has left the documents unclear and she has about a dozen other reasons why she… Read more

Aah, yes, the old Hymns of Glorious Praise. You know, the brown book on the back of the pew at church that you use for something hard to doodle…eerr…take notes on. The hymns inside are filled with Christian doctrine that is fundamental to what we believe and the truths found in the songs written in the 1800s are still applicable today. Here are some excerpts from five hymns that I feel share a message that we can apply to grow… Read more

Last week we discussed online tithing and if churches should offer an online option for giving. I mentioned that my wife and I use a credit card to pay for our tithe and wanted to address the issue of churches accepting tithe from credit cards. Should You Tithe With a Credit Card? Some churches only allow online tithing through debit cards, NOT credit cards. Having a credit card option can be a good thing for those who want to tithe… Read more

We live in an online world where you can do just about everything on the Internet – including paying your tithe. The question is, should churches allow online tithing? Before I attempt to outline both sides of the argument, I want to say that my wife and I utilize our church’s online tithing option. We pay our tithe with our credit card, which we pay each month (oftentimes every week). We do it because of the convenience of having all… Read more

Each year around Thanksgiving, it’s common to think about the things you’re thankful for. My list includes freedom in Christ, my wife, family, and living in a free country just to name a few. I wanted to take a different approach this year, so I tried to think of someone in the Bible who always appeared to be thankful – The Apostle Paul. It’s not hard to read through his letters and find verse after verse expressing his thankfulness. Reading… Read more

I love the book of Proverbs and always wanted to dissect the book and pull out the verses that talk about money.  After I sorted through each chapter, I made note of each verse that I felt referenced an aspect of money.  To my surprise, I pulled out 101 verses that could be categorized into 10 groups: Wealth in Wisdom and Knowledge, Hard Work, Rich and Poor, Greed, Provision, Giving, Wealth, Debt and Lending, Stewardship and Investments, Righteous Living. If… Read more
