Shelter and Security Meditation of Psalm 91

A Psalm of the Sheltered Life Multitudes today are shelter-conscious! Shelter from the A-bomb! Shelter from the H-bomb! William Faulkner, on his way to Stockholm last December to receive the Nobel Prize, paused in New York City long enough to... next...

Finding God’s Word in Our Time

Shrimp, crab, lobster, clams, mussels, all these are an abomination before the Lord, just as gays are an abomination. Why stop at protesting gay marriage? Bring all of God’s law unto the heathens and the sodomites. We call upon all Christians... next...

“First the Blade, Then the Ear”

Reformed Fellowship and The Outlook Minister to Prison Inmates
