Never Marry Your Aunt

One of my least favorite laws was the National Speed Limit law of 1974 that mandated 55 miles per hour as the legal maximum.  Government assured us that it would save gasoline that, back then, we were lining up at gas stations to buy at, gasp! 55 cents a gallon. Of course the law did...

Awkward or Scandalous?

You probably despair, as I do, when you read of the latest sexual scandal involving a religious leader.  You probably sigh, as I do, when you read of the latest sexual scandal involving a political or cultural leader. (Let’s leave economic scandals for another time.) Have we reached the point where we don’t even bat...

How can I be respectful to my unbelieving family members?

Question: I have two sisters who are causing big dilemmas in raising our 2-1/2 year old daughter. One sister is living with her boyfriend and their new baby and doesn’t attend church. She consistently dresses very provocatively, when she comes to our house. The other sister is an angry atheist who swears and takes God’s...

Grab That Ox

Almost everyone can tell when a synagogue or a church is in the final stages of decline.  The impending extinction is usually caused by changing neighborhood demographics or sometimes by a leadership crisis but the signs are always conspicuous.  Diminished attendance; few young women, a sad-looking facility showing signs of neglect. A roof needing repair,...

John Galt, Please Call Home

What do you call a society where honesty and factual data are less respected than falsehood and fanciful illusions?  One of the things you might call such a society is unsuccessful.  On June 9, 2015, Sir Tim Hunt, a Nobel prize-winning British biochemist, resigned  from University College London after being labelled sexist.  Among the “terrible”...

How Do I Keep the Bible’s Sabbatical Year?

Question: I really enjoyed listening to you on the Glenn Beck show and thought I might ask a quick question, if that’s all right…   I am a farmer/rancher and have decided to observe Shemitah, even though I don’t think it is “required” of gentiles. I just want to, as a sign of obedience to...

Snow White and the Bible’s 7 Year Cycle

Have you ever wondered why Snow White met seven dwarfs? Not six, not eight— exactly seven. Why do we speak of Seven Wonders of the World—perhaps there should be nine? Marilyn Monroe even starred in The Seven Year Itch. Have you ever wondered why England celebrated Queen Elizabeth’s ascension to the throne on the fiftieth...

What’s Missing?

Have you noticed that certain things are missing from hotel rooms lately? I am not suggesting a rash of thefts – I mean items that were once routinely found and no longer are. Specifically, I’m referring to towel bars and Gideon Bibles.   Why newly renovated or built hotel bathrooms frequently have no towel bars is...

Should My Husband Join My Business?

Question: My husband and I are ready your book on business as a result of seeing you on the 700 club. I have been in business for 25 years in the Imprinted Apparel business and recently my husband lost his job. It made sense for him to join the business as he is 10 years...

Adam, Moses and Air-Conditioning

More than a quarter million Bangladeshis were killed by a typhoon in November 1970.  Horrifying!  But wait, twice that number of Americans were killed by an influenza virus in 1918.  In the summer of 1995 excessive heat killed over 700 Americans while in the same year severe cold or hypothermia killed more than 2,000.  I...
