The greatest sacrifice

March 19th, 2013 by Tait

The other day someone on the radio mentioned that Jesus made the tree He was crucified on and that got me to thinking. Jesus didn’t just make the tree, but He also made the raw materials from which the nails that held Him to the cross were made and the hammer that pound those nails […]

Past performance is no indicator of future performance.

June 12th, 2011 by Tait

In the realm of the stock market and mutual funds, the phrase “past performance is no indicator of future performance” is always seen at the bottom of all prospectuses.  Unfortunately those very documents ignore this caution and immediately start to show similarities between “past performance” and current numbers and then start predicting what the “future […]

Why is it?

June 7th, 2011 by Tait

Why is it that Christians so often pray for the Lord to ‘come near’ without realizing what it is they are actually saying by praying that? What people who pray this are admitting is that they are some place the Lord is not. What a horrific thing to admit. Why would any Christian choose to […]

The term the “new normal” is becoming more often used and I believe that most people don’t fully understand the implications and the dangers of this.

The thing about seasons (summer, fall, winter, & spring) is that by looking around you, being observant and watchful, it is […]

The coming economic crises?

April 26th, 2011 by Tait

[I know that what I’m going to say here is controversial and many will probably disagree, and if you do, I would very much like to hear your comments, but I feel that I need to say it since this “situation” is so well hidden and non-obvious.] Many believe that the past 2 years of […]

In case of emergency …

April 19th, 2011 by Tait

As I was in my daily Scripture reading the other day, I was in Deuteronomy 19 and the stories of cities of refuge (sanctuary cities) seemed to jump off the page. The thought I had was that since God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, is it possible that since He provided cities of […]

The flood is coming

April 12th, 2011 by Tait

The flood is coming and most are not at all prepared. I see a small stream wide enough such that many people are standing with one foot on one side and the other foot on the other side. It is a comfortable place to be with one foot in the world and the other in […]
