Over the years I have written several "book" or "booklets" and many, many, many newsletter and bulletin articles. Because the book market seeks writings to meet specific needs at specific times, my material has never been accepted. I have a tendency to write what is on my mind and so I am left with self publishing. So, with the encouragement from my wife and others, I am beginning this blog in order to put my "ramblings" "out there"! I hope you enjoy!
Please note that while my intentions are to use good grammar, because of the way in which some of the material presented here is presented (orally) the grammar and syntax might not always be the best English. Also note that good theology is not always presented in the best English so there may be times when the proper grammar rules are purposely broken.

Just a bit of personal observation: I have noticed what I believe to be an interesting bit of irony about the desire of young people to reach intellectual independence, that is their attempt to be intellectually independent, especially of their parents and that is that what they seem to fail to realize that in their attempt to be independent, usually practiced by going against everything they have been raised to know, they have simply adopted an intelligence usually espoused by the liberal “free” thinking professor whose last desire would be that they would actually be “free” thinking (like them) unless it is to espouse their own values or lack thereof. My thought continues to go back to the Apostle Paul who reminds us, we are either slaves to sin or slaves to God. In our search for intellectual independence we eventually realize that we have to agree with someone. Thus we hold to the hope of God’s promise, “raise up a child in the way that they should go and when they are old they will not depart from it.”
