Echoes From the Campfire

     “In part I looked toward the setting sun because terror may ride with beauty, and a man needs to milk his hours of the precious things. To ride fast, to travel far, these were empty things unless a man took the time to savor, to taste, to love, to simply be.”

               --Louis L'Amour (The Proving Trail)

     "He has made everything beautiful in its time.... And also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor--it is the gift of God."

     "For false christs and false prophets will arise, and will provide signs and wonders, in order to mislead, if possible, the elect.  But beware; I have told you everything in advance."  --Mark 13:22-23 (NASB)

     I have been pondering the fact that people aren't interested in justice.  They seem to be only interested in their own self-serving, self-centered means and wants. …

Echoes From the Campfire

“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me."

          --John 14:1 (NKJV)

     There are many believers who are making themselves sick because of a troubled heart or mind. They live in despair, despondency, fear, and anxiety and this then produces more troubles in the heart. Why are so many believers fearful?

     

     I think that one reason is that there is a lack of sound doctrine being preached today. Paul exhorted Timothy and Titus to…

Echoes From the Campfire

     “If there is to be civilization, if people are to live and make their homes here, there must be law. People often think of the law as restrictions, but it needn't be, unless it's carried to extremes. Laws can give us freedom, because they offer security from the cruel, the brutal, and the thieves of property. In every community—even in the wildest gangs and bands of outlaws—there is some kind of law, if only the fear of the leader. There has to be law, or there can be no growth, no…
