America, and Western Civilization Is Dying

The reason for, and the explanation of, the fall of the American empire, and, for western civilization, is very simple. Unregenerate men love darkness more than light. In other words, they hate God. It’s that simple. God says: “And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness […]

The Responsibility of Blogging

2013 is coming to a fast closure, and as it does, I am reminded of one over-arching truth that has truly hit home with me. Preaching in front of 50, who come to hear and be taught from the Word of God is a fearful task and a heavy responsibility not to be taken lightly. […]

Blogging, Margaret Thatcher Style

Margaret Thatcher has passed away. I cannot say that I have read about her life in any biography, nor am I intimately familiar with her service as the former Prime Minister of England.

A Call to Diligence in Christian Blogging

Today, popular blogger Tim Challies promotes a book by John Stott, a man who believed the lineage of our Lord Jesus Christ came from monkeys.

Excuse the Mess

Just a quick note to let you know what’s going on here at the salt mine… In short, this place needs to get organized. Apparently, there were quite a few articles that dropped through the sieve unnoticed, that is, unread. The reason is simple. The site is not organized as it should be. My bad. […]

How to Write & Speak English Properly

Verbs has to agree with their subjects. Prepositions are not words to end a sentence with. And don’t start a sentence with a conjunction. It is wrong to ever split an infinitive. Avoid clichés like the plague (they’re old hat). Also, always avoid annoying alliteration. Be more or less specific. Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are […]

Today is Halloween. Our sign for the door tonight is ready: "Please, don’t bother knocking, we have no candy. Go to Church Sunday." … I don’t hate Halloween, I just hate giving candy to kids.
