Rising From the Ashes! Really!

In I, Radical I make the statement that “I will always have all I need to do all God wants.” What He wants is His will in and for our lives. Over the years some have questioned such a bold and starightforward claim. I realize that it is bold but the fact is that it is based on two pillars; one fairly reliable, and the other totally certain. The “fairly reliable” pillar is the testimony of personal experience and that of many others. It has been my experience for over 40 years but that’s not a really long time and I’m not at the end of my race yet. God may leave me hanging out to dry and I may be shown to be a fool. But I’m not in the least bit worried about that. I have read the biographies of many others who have trusted God and their testimonies...

It’s Here! “I, Radical – The story of a radical God’s work through an ordinary man” is now available!

About four years ago I was prompted to think about the difficulty of trans-generational transfer of faith. Reading in the Old Testament about the problems that many of the Kings and prophets had with some of their sons got me started. It’s not a given you know, actually the record is not that good. (Think David/Absalom) And then I thought I heard God whisper, “What about your grandchildren Buck? How are they going to know how I changed your life?” As I reflected on the question I realized that two of my three daughters and all of my grandchildren had been born after Jesus had saved and changed me and, if nothing happened, they would never hear the story of the change that Jesus made in my heart and life, let alone the miracles He’s done to provide and lead me in...

How far down is far enough?

America! How far down the slippery slope must we go before you wake up? How many times does the empty suit in the White House have to back off, back down, sell out, kiss up, lie, cheat, or set one class against another before you wake up? You bought a dream that was a mirage and worse a deliberate deception. Don’t you care? Are you really for sale for the empty promise of a free lunch? Well the chickens are coming home to roost. Wake up!...

CHURCH!!! Where were you?

So, we have just reelected a man who stands squarely with the murderers of children and the heroes of homosexuality. Way to go Church! He couldn’t have done it without you! Aren’t you proud of the country that you are shaping, or maybe not shaping, by your essential silence and compromise? On your way to worship the Baals are you deaf to God’s Word? I am sick in heart today, not because Mr. Obama won, I haven’t trusted in government for a long time, but for what his victory tells me about you Church. I knew you were sick but I didn’t know how sick. Well, just go on pretending, playing church with your fancy buildings and your blaring praise teams.Be more and more like the world you love and don’t complain when your fruit turns rotten and the...
