EbolaAirways

Of course Ebola is airborne. It flies in from Africa all the time.

So the hits just keep a-comin’… Sure, ISIS, Ebola and the like are inherently horrifying and all, but it’s the way in which these threats are understood and handled by our “leaders” that just seems to amplify the tragedy and terror in…well…a sometimes comically awful sort of way. Has this year not been one incredible run […]

What does the Gospel and Great Commission have to do with Ebola?

One of the greatest tools of the enemy and the old, worldly nature against which Christians struggle is distraction. We are easily distracted. Everything in this world tells us that everything but the whole, undiluted Gospel should be our focal point in life. Oh sure, you can “believe the Gospel” and “love the Lord” in […]

TooBigToFail

Too big to fail is too wrong to tolerate.

  Ever wonder why it is that folks who make the most mind-numbingly moronic economic decisions on the most grand, globally impactful scale, tend to barely suffer any sort of meaningful personal consequence for their world shaking acts of stupidity?
