by Daren Dilts

Coping in Trouble Times Psalm 54:1-7  “To the chief Musician on Neginoth, Maschil, A Psalm of David, when the Ziphims came and said to Saul, Doth not David hide himself with us? Save me, O God, by thy name, and judge me by thy strength. Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of […]

The Gentle Path to Hell

by Daren Dilts

The soft slow road to Hell, gentle and meandering, brightened by the flowers of human virtue, and softened by a comfortable choice in religion, still leads to the same reward for iniquity and self righteousness.

A Call to Biblical Manhood! – Revised

by Daren Dilts

 A Call to Biblical Manhood “Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.” ~ 1 Corinthians 16:13 What are we missing? Why are so many men today so self absorbed, arrogant, irresponsible, and immature. I can’t say that as I look around the city in which I live, or the […]

Are you too JUDGMENTAL?

by Daren Dilts

You’ve probably heard it a thousand times – “don’t judge me”, “don’t be so judgmental”, “get off your high horse”. Does the Bible say we are supposed to judge? – you bet it does… “For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body. For this cause […]
