An Old Man His Church and Empty Pews

As I sat alone in church this morning I couldn’t help wonder why there are so many empty pews? Yet deep inside I knew the reason. The faces that I had grown to know and love had gone home to their eternal resting place.

Even though for years we knew this transition was going to take place that doesn’t make it any easier in which to deal with. The reality is that there are more on the way and one of them could be me!

It’s been over 20 years since I first took a step into this place. Sure there have been good times and bad but it’s still home and it will be until I take my final breath.

Faith On Your Head?

Many claims that their faith is as solid as a rock. Of course, they are only fooling themselves and that is dangerous! So that begs the question of just is what your faith is based on and why? For a way too many their faith is like balancing on their heads not knowing which they will fall?

The thing is even if you think you have your life in balance you are heading for an epic fall. There is no such thing as a totally balanced life so why make the effort? Because we are all sinners and fall short of the glory of God. Sometimes life isn’t nearly as complicated as we want to make it!

Men and Women Of Faith In Politics?

Ok, let’s get real about things about most of these politicians who promote their faith and values are being hypocrites. They call each other horrible names that they would never use in their personal lives with friends and families.

The reason they do it is actually is very simple. Satan is having a field day and is using these folks as a weapon in a battle he will lose in the end!

This happens regardless of your political beliefs or convictions. So no one is immune to it happening to them.

Country music star Bill Anderson sang a song many years ago called “Where Have All Our Hero’s Gone” and that song talks about men wearing a white hat. The thing is we don’t have men like that anymore. Men who could care less about how things could bother them politically.

So the hypocrisy continues and it will not change and Satan is laughing right along each and every day!
