The Courage To Try

Neal Pollard About nine months ago, a man walked into our building a day after being immersed into Christ. He had been searching diligently for the truth, a man whose hunger for the Bible caused him to study his Bible for hours every day (including on audio at his job as a metal fabricator). He … Continue reading The Courage To Try

Grocery Bag In A Bush

Scott Phillips My girls recently modified the game of Slug Bug in order to make it more exciting and faster-paced. A couple of months ago, with the whole family in the car, we were introduced to it when we heard the words “gocery bag in a bush” shouted three times in rapid succession followed by “wow! three in … Continue reading Grocery Bag In A Bush

WHY WE ARE TEMPTED NOT TO TEACH TRUTH

Neal Pollard Most preachers know the unpleasant burden of having to preach on difficult subjects. There are some who, whether they find it unpleasant or not, are unpleasant in their demeanor and fully ready to frequently preach on moral, doctrinal, ethical, and other sin-related issues. However, it is distasteful business to most men who stand … Continue reading WHY WE ARE TEMPTED NOT TO TEACH TRUTH

In Their Steps (Poem)

Neal Pollard They fought a fight of sacrifice On land, by air, and sea Privation, starvation, an awful price To guard our liberty Some were cut down in prime of life Others came home with scars They faced great fears and perilous strife For country, for stars and bars We owe a debt of gratitude … Continue reading In Their Steps (Poem)

What Would YOU Do?

Neal Pollard On the one hand, Brunhilde Pomsel says she knew nothing but on the other says she saw the “ranting, rowdy man,” the “raging midget” that her boss, Joseph Goebbels, could become. Though usually sophisticated and elegant, if arrogant, he was the propaganda minister for Hitler’s Nazi regime, culpable in the murder of millions … Continue reading What Would YOU Do?

THE BEAUTY OF PERSONAL INTEGRITY

Neal Pollard There is an old episode of Father Knows Best where Bud, the Andersons’ son, has a glowing write up in the local newspaper for his star performance as his High School’s placekicker.  Success goes to his head, leading Bud to break the team’s training rules and stay out past 9:00 P.M.  His father … Continue reading THE BEAUTY OF PERSONAL INTEGRITY

MILLENNIALS LEAVING THE ESTABLISHED FOR THE CONVENIENT?

Neal Pollard I was more than a little amused to read one of the latest offerings at the offbeat online food site “Munchies” (munchies.vice.com).  While it seems to be having fun with the overkill-reporting of all movements millennial, they give hard data to support the idea that those in the age range of 18-34 are … Continue reading MILLENNIALS LEAVING THE ESTABLISHED FOR THE CONVENIENT?

“NO MATTER WHAT” OBEDIENCE

(video by Wes Autrey) Neal Pollard I cannot imagine anyone present yesterday morning to witness Janice Lee baptized into Christ could have failed to be touched at a very deep level.  J.J. and Lila Brennan had been studying the Bible with Janice, and she came to the conclusion that she needed to be baptized for … Continue reading “NO MATTER WHAT” OBEDIENCE

Act While You Can!

Neal Pollard Recently, I was corresponding with Arthur Ohanov, a gospel preacher in Donetsk, Ukraine, who served as my translator on a couple of mission trips to eastern Ukraine in the early 2000s.  In part, he wrote me, “As I am typing this letter I hear bombing in our city, but God is good! We … Continue reading Act While You Can!
