Viewing political corruption more broadly

Earlier this year, veteran political writer Thomas Edsall reported an eyebrow-raising fact about Americans’ views toward government.Polling by Gallup, he noted, found that the proportion of Americans who believed that corruption is “widespread” in government had risen from 59 percent in 2006 to 79 percent in 2013. “In other words,” Edsall wrote, “we were cynical already, but now we’re in overdrive.”

The U.S. response to the Ebola outbreak in Africa is yet another example of dysfunction at the national level.Our response to this international threat has been slow, disjointed and contradictory. The lack of preparation left health care workers in Texas less alert to the threat, less prepared and knowledgeable than those on the ground in Liberia or Sierra Leone.We can do better than this. We needed to aggressively and more forcefully assist areas where this epidemic beg...

We are drawn to God by His love

“I drew them with bands of love.”I do not get to see my grandbabies very often. Brooklyn is in Williamsburg, Va., and Justus is in Martinsburg, W.Va. Those are long trips to see those two, which involves time I did not have time to take this time. But, Zaven and Kinsley are in Lima, Ohio, which is only a little over three hours from here. Needing a Grandpaw fix recently, I made a day-trip to visit with the later for a few hours.Having arrived, I walked onto t...

As Jesus gathered with His apostles in the upper room in order to celebrate the Passover, their last supper together before His death, something was amiss.Nobody had washed their feet. Reclining near to one another, this could have been a potentially uncomfortable problem, but Jesus took the opportunity to teach His apostles. Removing His outer garment, He washed their feet demonstrating the loving heart of the servant which He desired for them to have (cf. John 13:1-7) In the mids...

A Hunger for More

Today is definitely an age in which most of us are beyond our ability to negotiate life’s circumstances.Whether we have been laid off and cannot find a new job, we have an illness for which there is no cure and/or very little comfort, or we have broken relationships that we simply can’t fix no matter how much we may desire to do so, sometimes it can be a bit too much. Even our “constitutionally protected right to free speech” is under fire and in jeopardy....

Maintaining mind on God affects what we think

Concerning the getting and keeping of peace in the soul, the Scripture says that God “will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on God, because he trusts in God.”Then, it goes on to give the following encouragement as it concerns getting and keeping peace in your soul: “Trust you in the Lord forever, for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength.”

A Hunger For More

As our daughter nears 10 years of age, I find myself reflecting on what Jesus said in John 13:20, “I tell you the truth, whoever accepts anyone I send accepts Me; and whoever accepts Me accepts the One Who sent Me.”While this certainly has to do with receiving the good news of Jesus Christ and entering into God’s great Salvation, it is also an admonishment for any who are Believers to humbly receive God’s love through the loving administrations of caring peo...

Statements by legislative leadership about coal are unacceptable

I am troubled by the response from some of our legislative leaders and others who seem to passively accept that coal is an industry in decline and further espouse a defeatist attitude and contempt towards one of the state’s leading industries and the thousands of men and woman who comprise it.This was the message delivered in an Associated Press story that made the rounds recently, entitled, “Legislative leaders say coal rhetoric not helping.”This attit...

As Matthew concludes his account of the Sermon on the Mount, in the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 7, he notes the reaction of the people to the teachings of Jesus: “And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that the people were astonished at His teaching, for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.” (Matthew 7:28-29)

Got good faith brakes?

The experience among church people that captures my attention and stimulates ministerial burden involves the regretful reactions from those who come under emotional duress for many reasons. Instead of turning first toward God and the fellowship of the church, they fall away.This is an unfortunate response because of the distinct loss of spiritual advantage God and the church can provide when one’s emotional strength plunges to the lower depths of the soul. It is a spiritual r...

Ohio Valley Symphony celebrates 25 years on Saturday

This Saturday at 8 p.m., the sounds of musical instruments of The Ohio Valley Symphony reverberate through the beautifully restored vintage 1895 opera house complex, known as the Ariel-Ann Carson Dater Performing Arts Centre.The best architects of today would have a difficult time designing a theater with the near perfect acoustics of this relic in the heart of Gallipolis. This 25th anniversary concert, the first of the season, will feature the soloist Jay Campbell with his cello....

The Satanic Temple, a New York organization, made the news recently when they announced their decision to hand out coloring books in a school in Florida, promoting their beliefs.The group is a rather odd organization, in and so far as the group itself is primarily composed of people who don’t actually believe in the devil. Rather, they are a group of anti-religious individuals, atheists one would presume, who promote devil worship simply to be obnoxious to Christians and othe...

“Forever, O LORD, Your word is firmly fixed in the heavens” (Psalm 119:89 ESV).As we read the Word of God, let us hope that we do more than read and even just memorize what it says. Unless we begin to perceive the Author Who penned the Word of God through the living quills of human writers, we have seriously missed the point of the Bible.As we seek to navigate through life with not only mere survivors’ mentalities, but that of victors whose lives have s...

Don’t hang your arm out the window

I was driving my ’73 Chevy the other day on my way to Point Pleasant. I had my hand out the window propped on the side-view mirror. As a semi-truck passed in the opposite direction stirring up a rush of wind, it recalled to mind a certain lesson ingrained in me from years ago.If ever I have my hand outside any vehicle on the move, it is never any further out than the side-view mirror. This inadvertent rule-of-thumb I have is because of my Grandmaw Lineberry.
