Fear breaks the dams in my gut. Ever felt fear – like vise grips tightened over your heart? Felt red raw fear? Solutions are not “Automated Jesus Answers”.

There are a few things in life that you sure as hell need to fear. Ever really thought about this? Right in our neighborhood there was a dog who lived in a cage. This monster weighed over 200 pounds. Massive. He would lunge at us with horrible sounds as my wife and I did our […]
Though invisible, Satan has power on earth. However, the believer in Christ is indwelt by the Holy Spirit, and He is greater than Satan. The Bible tells us what we need to know about our Enemy, Satan.
