Dees: Was Jesus a Liberal?

One of the phrases that you will hear from time to time in the news media is, "Jesus was a liberal," meaning that Jesus was left winged in his political thought. Many political pundits will say that when one reads the New Testament, it is obvious that Jesus was socialistic in his thinking, and that if he walked the earth today, he would surely be among those on the political left.

Scharf: Do Not Worry!

"Is this stuff going on in Egypt a sign of the end of the world?" "If I lose my job, we'll never make it." "I'm worried that we'll lose our house." "What does all this mean for our kids?" "I can't take one more loss. I'll lose my mind!"

Dale: Judge Not

"Judge not, that you be not judged, for with the judgment you make you will be judged, and the measure you give will be the measure you get back."

We love these words that Jesus spoke in his Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 7:12). But as with many of his lessons, this one is prone to misapplication. Many trip over it and rise from the dust to follow a different path. Others pull this arrow out of their quiver to fire back at judgmental Christians.

Dale: About Faith - Consider the lilies

I recently came across a blog that said "Live each day like it's your last, and one day you'll be right." Someone might counter, "I live each day like I have all the time in the world, and so far, I've been right every time." Both of these observations are correct, but we recognize the wisdom in the first and the folly in the second. Time well spent is time cherished; time poorly spent leaves us with a stockpile of regret.

Yarbrough: Speaker’s Thanksgiving trip was a turkey
