Jesus said, “God is a Spirit, and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth” (John 4 24). To really worship God, a person has to be in right relationship with Him. This is only possible through Jesus Christ. In other words, people have to have had an experience of repentance — turning from their sin; and, coinciding with this they have to have had an experience of faith — trusting in Jesus Christ as their Savior (Acts 19:20, 21). The only people who can worship God are those who have been saved and are indwelt by the Holy Spirit of God (Eph. 1:13-14; Rom. 8:9-11). Jesus said, “The Father seketh such to worship Him” (John 4:24).

Worship is important. John Ruskin said, “What greater calamity can fall upon a nation than...

   “There is a generation that curseth their father, and doth not bless  their mother. There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes,and yet is not washed from their filthiness.  There is a generation,  how lofty are their eyes! and their eyelids are lifted up. There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men.”

—Prov. 11:14-30

   “And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them. And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another,and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable  . . ....

Are you looking forward to celebrating Thanksgiving Day or Turkey Day this month? It makes a difference. What you call it indicates what your concept is or will become as to the significance of this day. How we talk about things will either reveal how we think about, or will begin to think about, those things.
 

The words, “think” and “thank” come from the same root word. There’s a tremendous connection between thankfulness and thoughtfulness, and between what people think and what they say. How people talk also reveals a lot about the conditions of their hearts. After all, the Bible says, "Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh" (Matt. 12:34).  When people have a problem being thankful, it may be beca...

“There is a generation that curseth their father, and doth not bless 

their mother. There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes,

and yet is not washed from their filthiness.  There is a generation,

O how lofty are their eyes! and their eyelids are lifted up. There is a

generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as

knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from

among men.”

—Prov. 11:14-30

“And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule

over them. And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another,

and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself

proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable  . . .  

As for my people, children are their oppres...

I recently watched a 5 minute Prager University video entitled, “Dear Celebrities, No One Cares What You Think.” On it a young woman says of political-activist celebrities, that while they make a valuable contribution through their entertainment, what they have to say about politics and social mores’ is basically worse than worthless. I sure don’t share her opinion about the “contribution” they make, but I absolutely agree with her latter assessment. I don’t care what these celebrities think either. And, that’s because of what I think about almost all television, movies, stage, sports and other celebrities.

Dr. Samuel Johnson (1709-1784) was a poet, essayist, moralist, literary critic, biographer, editor and lexicographer and considered to be the most...

I didn’t think it was possible, but I've found something to appreciate in connection with the rap genre of music. Watch and listen to this video, carefully focusing your attention on the lyrics.

I can’t imagine a more oxymoronic term than “rap music.” I don’t like it for a number of what I think are really good, intelligent, reasons. Among other things, I think it is symptomatic of a dishonest and delusional culture that “rap” would be considered “music” at all. I almost always have a negative reaction to it spiritually, emotionally and even physically any time I hear it. But, that’s just me. At the same time, I have found a lot to appreciate in this video.

I think this video is worth posting for two reasons: (1) because of the clear, powerful and need...
