Firm Convictions

by admin

Firm Convictions By Wendy Wippel Am I the only one who has wrestled with Genesis 6?  Particularly what the heck the “firmament” actually was?  Over the centuries there have been various translations. But I think our generation has a leg up on finally getting it right. Apparently early Christians conceived the firmament as a vast […]

The Great Divide

by admin

The Great Divide By Wendy Wippel I think it’s fairly safe to say that the issue that divides the church the most is issue of eternal security, otherwise known as “Can you lose your salvation?” It is an extremely important question for each of us individually. But it’s also an important question for The Church […]

The Original Soul Train

by admin

The Original Soul Train By Wendy Wippel All of us have sung (sometime in our lives, right?)—that great old hymn “It is Well with my Soul”.  “When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,when sorrows like sea billows roll; Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say, It is well, it is well with […]

Nothing Comes from Nothing…Nothing Ever Could

by admin

Nothing Comes from Nothing…Nothing Ever Could By Wendy Wippel There is a principle in scientific thinking (Ockham’s razor) that was developed by a thirteenth century clergyman and scientist named Ockham. The principal, in laymen’ terms says, “don’t assert what you can’t prove. Today’s scientists, however (who apparently watched way too much Barney with their kids), […]

Donkeys and their Delusions

by admin

Donkeys and their Delusions By Wendy Wippel Is it just me, or has anyone else out there felt that this last election cycle has been like watching the very fabric of our country and its culture come apart out the seams? Driven largely by hysteria among the Democratic party and its adherents? Meaning mostly Hollywood […]

Game Over

by admin

Game Over By Wendy Wippel Maybe it’s just me, but I tend to take the Holy Spirit for granted. (Internal inventory: liver, spleen, lungs, and oh, the Holy Spirit.) Maybe it’s because He stays behind the scenes. (John 16:12-14) But He’s worthy of consideration, and, improbably, an analogy from modern life can make Him a […]

Call Me the Wanderer

by admin

Call Me the Wanderer By Wendy Wippel Today’s Fun Fact: the word “go” occurs 1,358 times in the Bible. Which doesn’t mean much without the contrapositive: the word “stay” appears only 53 times. And in half of the first eight–(which is as far as I checked) — the word “stay” was actually used in the […]

Prophecy By Parallel

by admin

Prophecy By Parallel By Wendy Wippel One of my favorite Bible scholars explains the format of our Scriptures like this:  The Old is, in the New, revealed; the New is, in the Old concealed.  Jesus Himself confirmed the second half when He told a couple of disciples on the Emmaus road that everything in their […]

Heart of Darkness

by admin

Heart of Darkness By Wendy Wippel According to Richard Dawkins, science has now erased any need for a creator. No need, Dawkins says, because physics has now revealed every little bit of information with respect to how the universe came to be. My response? Back the bus up, Dawkins. Your mouth done wrote a check […]

A Prodigal People

by admin

A Prodigal People By Wendy Wippel “Grace” is a beautiful young woman who loves God. Who spent a year in London on Mission, serving and witnessing to London youth.  She came home with an unexpected medical issue, however. Really unexpected: a pregnancy. Which– distraught and devoid of resources– she ended in the same way that […]

The “Mark” of the Beast

by admin

The “Mark” of the Beast By Wendy Wippel Facebook had a conference last week at which, unexpectedly, they offered up an apology for its negative effects, namely seducing us into paying more attention to the device we hold then to the ones we hold dear. Noble, I guess. But their solution may be out of […]

Whose Counting?

by admin

Whose Counting? By Wendy Wippel Last week I kind of casually threw out the supposition that the Bible could be considered two-thirds prophecy. Let’s just say I caught a little flak for that. I will say first that I didn’t make that figure up; I heard it—often—from Chuck Missler, someone I credit for most of […]
