Helen Keller (1880 – 1968) was a normal, healthy baby until at the age of 19 months an illness, believed to have been either scarlet fever or a type of meningitis left her both blind and deaf. She became an increasingly violent and uncontrollable child until, at the age of seven, she was placed in the charge of a gifted, compassionate and determined young teacher by the name of Anne Sullivan.  Helen Keller, totally unable to either see or hear, would go on to become one of the most famous and productive people to ever live.

Largely because of the efforts of Miss Anne Sullivan, Helen obtained an education and an attitude that enabled her to go on to live an extraordinary life. She graduated with honors from Radcliff College, where as a student she wrot...

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

What does this tell us about the state of Chris...

Eric Greitens, former Navy Seal and current governor of Missouri, has written in his in his very fine book, Resilience, that “Arrogance is the armor worn by hollow men.”

How true, how pathetically sad and how all-too-obvious. You can see this being verified in pulpits and pews and throughout the public at large week after week. Arrogance really is the armor of hollow men; men who try to compensate for, and cover-up, their own personal incompetencies and insecurities with an air of superiority and a colossal rudeness towards and mistreatment of other people.

Now and then an arrogant man can be found “serving” as the pastor of a church. Generally speaking, such men are pompous and petty; supra-authoritarian and hyper-critical. They share in common a cert...
