John M. Drickamer People say, “You have to accept Jesus as Savior and Lord!” Aside from the proud, free-will implication of the word “accept,” what bothers me is the emphasis they put on the term “Lord.” They mean it in the sense of “boss” or “ruler.” The idea is that for salvation it is not … Continue reading Jesus is Lord!

I signed up to participate in book launch for two of the co-founders of The Babylon Bee. On June 7 their first novel The Postmodern Pilgrim’s Progress is available to buy or download.
