Truth and The Sifted Generation

One of the most famous quotes in history is Pilate's famous word's to Jesus, "What is truth?" (John 18:38). His remark was in response to Jesus' frank declaration that "...everyone who is of the truth hears my voice" (John 18:37). In today's world, it seems Pilate's words have become a cultural rallying point while Jesus' words...well, not so much.

For instance the result of Pilate's words echo loudly over the megaphone of mixed messages that hammer us through non-stop liberal media productions, hopeless political distractions, and drastically liberal theological positions which bring the Christian faith into mockery. All of these, and more, have created a kind of alphabetical soup culture replete with chaos and mixed messages. No wonder so many people live with depression.

Truth Inspires: Uninspired Quote of the Week

Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. (2 Timothy 3:12 NKJV)

I am so excited to let everyone know that my new book The Sifted Generation is now available! I do hope you will consider reading it or at least downloading the sample at Kindle. (Click Here)



The times we live in are changing so quickly. It seems a day does not go by where some example of hostility toward believers is encountered or a believer is challenged to stand for his/her faith. It's these types of trials and tough encounters that Christians have feared for many years. I have been told many times by faithful believers that they just don't know what they would say or do if they were placed in a trying position with reference to their faith. As a matter of fact the most common thing I hear is, "No one really knows how they would respond." And in many cases that is probably true. 

Although I have only been faced with being fired from a few secular jobs I can say with empathy it isn't easy to make a public stand. But in each case where I have been tested God saw …
