I was thinking this evening upon a subject and so I thought I’d write about it briefly. I say briefly, because I don’t think there is enough room here to cover the subject in great detail. The subject I am speaking of is that of conviction. The word conviction has more than one meaning. There…

“Which Side?”

This week, as I was leaving the gym, I saw a vehicle with a bunch of stickers on the back. One was large and easily seen, which said, “Jesus was a LIBERAL.” WOW! What a statement, right? Now Jesus is a liberal. My first thought was, “No, He was probably a conservative.” Then I spent…
