God Will Bring Every Act To Judgment

Neal Pollard 72% of Americans, age 13-24, view pornography frequently (55% of men 25 and older). Those numbers only drop to 41% and 23% of those professing to be Christians (Barna, July-August 2015, Barna Study Here).  So, perhaps this was inevitable. A few years ago, potentially millions of people started receiving a disturbing email from an … Continue reading God Will Bring Every Act To Judgment

“No One Supported Me, But All Deserted Me”

Neal Pollard These are some of the last words written by one of the greatest men who ever lived. He wrote them while in prison, waiting to die for his faith. He has just spoken of people he trusted who had deserted him. He is lacking even the bare essentials. A man, knowing how difficult … Continue reading “No One Supported Me, But All Deserted Me”

“BLESSED”

Neal Pollard I've never known a day when I didn't live in a "preacher's home." "Preacher's homes" are very much like every other home--problems, inside jokes, traditions, hobbies and interests, sin, laughter--except the chosen profession of the father is to serve either full-time or part-time as a proclaimer of God's Word. At times, the home … Continue reading “BLESSED”

What’s The Point?

Neal Pollard Years ago, Wes Autrey sent me a copy of the "Idiot Report." To this day, I still wonder why he thought of me as he read something with that title. I found all the entries hilarious, but one attributed to a Wichita probation officer was particularly funny. This august report said, "the stoplight … Continue reading What’s The Point?

"What Is Important?" Neal Pollard (11/10/96) there is much this world crowns king And before them all they fall Mere trinkets and perishable things Upon these they in foolish faith call.

The Inevitable Standard

Neal Pollard Everywhere, each generation tries to figure out the why and how of living. Most will not find the right path (Mat. 7:13-14). Almost all are convicted, even passionate, about the way they wish to live life. They may be fiery about politics, social issues, relationships, and even religious ideals, and to be consistent … Continue reading The Inevitable Standard

Don’t Miss The Privilege Of Worship

Neal Pollard Yesterday, John and Carla Moore, Kathy, and I worshipped with the church of Christ in Nazareth. We have been there a few times, but there was something extremely special about yesterday. In attendance was Wissam Al-Aethawi, an Iraqi and Muslim-born brother in Christ whom I first met at Polishing the Pulpit. What was … Continue reading Don’t Miss The Privilege Of Worship

Evangelism Effectively Executed (POEM)

Neal Pollard We need to know the Bible, to study and apply, And teach and share with others, their faith to solidify. But often, before they'll listen to a consonant or vowel, They need to see us on our knees, with our basin and our towel. For fine speech can lose its luster, and argument … Continue reading Evangelism Effectively Executed (POEM)
