Christmas is one of the most enigmatic seasons in our country. While culture has found an ability to remove almost every Christian reference and monument from daily life, it has been unable to keep the religious overtones out of Christmas. Try as they might, images of the Christ-child, the...

I’ve had an email inbox more full than usual this week with requests asking for information about the poem I recited last Sunday during the message. I’m glad so many appreciated it. It is a poem that I have had memorized for about fifteen years. I first heard it in the 1980’s...

I have been catching quite a bit of grief from many of you for not announcing the birth of my grandson, Declan James Drent. It is not because Dedra and I are not thrilled, or that being a grandfather makes me feel old. We are both ecstatic, and I have no issues with growing older – it...

I still remember how I felt when one of my heroes of the faith, John R.W. Stott, came out publicly in defense of an idea known as “annihilationism.” Annihilationists believe that God, in his mercy, will not leave those who reject Christ to suffer in hell, but will either immediately...

As our “short-term missions season” comes to an end, I want to both update and encourage you with some information about missions here at LifePoint. First, Wanda Pear, a long-time member of LifePoint, just returned from the nation of Haiti. As you are probably aware, that nation just...

Earlier this month, a small team from LifePoint had the opportunity to travel to the Middle East on a short-term mission trip. Our team was made up of Tina Rhodes, Kelly Hanson, Samuel Spray and Ryan Smith and me. Each of us had an opportunity to use our gifts and abilities in a unique way to...
