Land That I Love: Part 7 – A Beacon

"America is great because she is good. If America ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.” - Alexis de Tocqueville There is much to love about America. I’ve tried—and I feel as if I’ve been trying to paint the Sistine Chapel with crayons—to articulate the sentiment that has grabbed me, the stirring in my soul regarding this great nation. I don’t love everything about her. I don’t condone everything she’s done. I don’t agree with everything legislated by Congress [...]

Land That I Love: Part 6 – Indomitable Spirit

“Americans never quit.” – General Douglas MacArthur You know it, you’ve seen it, you’ve felt it—the American spirit. As I write this, I’m envisioning a truck commercial, set late in the afternoon with golden sunlight shining on a heavy-duty pickup as it splashes through the mud. John Mellencamp is singing. Or maybe it’s a beer ad with young, good-looking people flirting, dancing with sparklers, celebrating life. These are poor representations, but they do sort of get it right. Because you don’t see [...]

Land That I Love: Part 5 – Resources

“O beautiful for spacious skies, For amber waves of grain, For purple mountain majesties Above the fruited plain!” - Katherine Lee Bates America is the land of freedom, the land of opportunity, the land of accomplishment. They build off each other, they exist because of each other, but they are not in a vacuum. Intrinsically linked to this triumvirate is an abundant supply of resources, from the dirt and rock that make up the physical United States of America to its host [...]

Publishers Note: This series was originally written in 2015 and is being reposted in 2020 for its pertinence to current issues. “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” – Neil Armstrong We walked on the moon. Think about that for just a moment. We, who of our own power can only expel ourselves a few feet into the air, traveled 250,000 miles into space. Having correctly calculated the gravitational pulls of the sun, the earth, and the moon, [...]

"Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage." Galatians 5:1 These words were written by the Apostle Paul to the Christian believers at Galatia. I suggest that a similar statement could be made to the people of the United States of America: “It is for freedom that [...]

Who Were The Sons of God of Genesis Six?

by Christopher Preston, Fairview Bible Church, Fairview, PA INTRODUCTION The “sons of God” of Genesis chapter six have been the subject of much controversy. Respected theologians and pastors differ drastically on their understanding of the identity of these beings. There are four basic interpretations regarding the identity of the Sons of God. The purpose of this paper is to examine these views, and to argue that the sons of God were in fact fallen angels who abandoned their proper domain of the [...]

Why Am I A Dispensationalist?

Why am I a Dispensationalist? I grew up in the church, but without much serious biblical influence from its pastors. I was saved and baptized at a young age; however, due to some travail in my middle teenage years, I reached the climax of crisis and finally took my commitment to Christ seriously. Something wonderful and profound took place during those days: I picked up a Bible for myself. The Bible became my addiction, and my soul was captive to its every [...]

The Triple Cure

(Read Part 1) When we think about the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ in the world, we are instantly forced to travel the road north from Bethlehem to Jerusalem. There, we can stand and gaze through tears of both sorrow and joy at a lonely hill called Calvary. There, with the eyes of faith, we see Jesus not as the eternal child in the arms of His mother, but as the Christ of Calvary. A moment’s thought about what happened there [...]

Christ is with Us

There was a night nearly 2,000 years ago in which a little city south of Jerusalem became the scene of the greatest miracle in the history of the universe. Whatever unusual things have ever transpired, none of them can compare to the intersection of humanity and divinity which took place in that little town. What was that miracle? The answer is found in the statement of Matthew, “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His [...]
