Perspective: Stand for truth

We have seen this coming for several years. This has been occurring at coastal universities for a long time. Though without question, the intensity has been rising. It has now appeared in the heartland and on the campus of one of our leading universities. Members of an LGBTQ group affiliated with the Women’s Research Center/BGLTQ+ Student Center at the University of Central Oklahoma (UCO) have successfully silenced the Christian...

Perspective: Church ‘unemployment’

I read recently that the unemployment rate in Oklahoma has dropped again, bringing it to 4.1 percent. So Oklahoma has approximately 4.1 percent of eligible workers who are without jobs. While we wish every person seeking a job could find one, this unemployment rate is considered quite good. This information caused me to think about the unemployment rate in the church.

They live by the popular mantra that “what...

Perspective: Facing life’s tragedies

Sometimes life seems to throw some tough and crippling experiences our way. Over the past few months I have had several friends face some of the harshest of life’s experiences. Death, tragedy and heartache have interrupted the serene and tranquil movement of life. Through the months, I have observed the way these godly and strong believers have faced difficult and painful times with an inner strength that only comes from the Lord....

Perspective: Importance of daily Bible reading

Ministers and Christian leaders spend a great deal of time listening to and counseling others in the decision-making process. Often decisions are clouded by a complex world and ever-changing moral climate. Seemingly, there are no clear cut answers. So what are we to do? How can we find our way in such a messed up culture? How do we know what to do in a society where many believers compromise in order to be accepted rather than stand...
