Surprised My Mom After Nearly 4 Years in Europe



After spending nearly four years on the mission field of Croatia, my sister and brother-in-law purchased a plane ticket for me to come home and surprise my parents for the holidays. It worked out great. My sister lured them to one of our favorite eating establishments - Taco Villa in Big Spring, Texas. A camera operator was standing by to capture the moment. Praise God.

MMO Free Clinic in Cluj-Napoca Romania

This past week I had the joy of attending an MMO (Medical Missions Outreach) clinic in Cluj-Napoca, Romania at Gospel Light Baptist Church. The MMO team, made up of medical professionals and some non-medical personnel, arrived in Cluj-Napoca on Saturday, the 19th. We had church Sunday morning and set the clinic up Sunday night. The free clinic is strategically arranged so each patient has an opportunity to meet with a soulwinnner from the local church during their visit, and it ran for 10 hours per day Mon-Thurs. In all, 450 patients were treated, with 14 receiving Christ as Saviour, and many more requesting follow up pastoral visits to their homes. This was a great spiritual victory in this predominantly Orthodox country. Praise the Lord!

Tom Clancy - Heaven or Hell?

Anytime a famous person's death is published in the news, the first thought I have is, Did their eternal soul go to heaven or hell? Admittedly, I only know that I am saved and going to heaven and I cannot possibly know about anyone else.
However, I do know from the Bible that worldly fame can't take anyone to heaven.

The only one who can save is Jesus Christ. By faith in Him you can be saved, guaranteeing you a place in heaven for all eternity, regardless of your popularity, talent, or wealth.

Did Tom Clancy ever place his faith for salvation in Jesus Christ and Him alone? Only he and God know that. The only thing that matters to him now is his relationship with Jesus Christ.

This is what the Bible says about how to be saved:
  • John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
  • John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
  • Romans 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
  • Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
  • Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
  • Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
  • Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
  • Acts 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved ...
  • Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
  • John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Being world-famous doesn't save anyone from Hell. Having a fortune in worldly wealth doesn't purchase a place in heaven.
God is not impressed with worldly fame, or great riches or professional talent.

God sent His only begotten Son Jesus to die on the cross to pay for Tom Clancy's sins. God offered him the free gift of eternal life, if only he would believe on Jesus Christ and call out to Him for salvation. God gave Tom Clancy 66 years to accept the free gift of eternal life.

Did he ever receive Jesus as his personal Saviour? If not, it is eternally too late for him.

But it is not yet too late for you. Only Jesus Saves!

Great Opportunity to Exalt The Word of God

This past Friday night there was a performance at the local arena.  All traffic must travel down one road to get there, so it presented an excellent opportunity to publish the Word of God with our reflective gospel signs.

Translations from left to right:
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved.
There is none righteous, no, not one.
The church, Mary and the Pope do not save; only Jesus Christ saves!
The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ.
Christ died for our sins.

In addition, All have sinned and come short of the glory of God, was held by our photographer.

The Fishless Fishermen Fellowship


There was a group called The Fisherman’s Fellowship. They were surrounded by streams and lakes full of hungry fish. They met regularly to discuss the call to fish, the abundance of fish, and the thrill of catching fish. They got excited about fishing!

Someone suggested that they needed a philosophy of fishing, so they carefully defined and redefined fishing, and the purpose of fishing. They developed fishing strategies and tactics. Then they realized that they had been going at it backwards. They had approached fishing from the point of view of the fisherman, and not from the point of view of the fish. How do fish view the world? How does the fisherman appear to the fish? What do fish eat, and when? These are all good things to know. So they began research studies, and attended conferences on fishing. Some traveled to far away places to study different kinds of fish, with different habits. Some got PhD’s in fishology. But no one had yet gone fishing.

So a committee was formed to send out fisherman. As prospective fishing places outnumbered fisherman, the committee needed to determine priorities. A priority list of fishing places was posted on bulletin boards in all of the fellowship halls. But still, no one was fishing. A survey was launched, to find out why. Most did not answer the survey, but from those that did, it was discovered that some felt called to study fish, a few, to furnish fishing equipment, and several to go around encouraging the fishermen. What with meetings, conferences, and seminars, they just simply didn’t have time to fish.

Now, Jake was a newcomer to the Fisherman’s Fellowship. After one stirring meeting of the Fellowship, he went fishing and caught a large fish. At the next meeting, he told his story, and he was honored for his catch. He was told that he had a special “gift of fishing.” He was then scheduled to speak at all the Fellowship chapters and tell how he did it.

With all the speaking invitations and his election to the board of directors of the Fisherman’s Fellowship, Jake no longer has time to go fishing. But soon he began to feel restless and empty. He longed to feel the tug on the line once again. So he cut the speaking, he resigned from the board, and he said to a friend, “Let’s go fishing.” They did, just the two of them, and they caught fish. The members of the Fisherman’s Fellowship were many, the fish were plentiful, but the fishers were few!

Interesting Article About ISLAM

(adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond's book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat) Islam is not a religion, nor is it a cult. In its fullest form, it is a complete, total, 100% system of life. Islam has religious, legal, political, economic, social, and military components. The religious component is a beard for all of the other components. Islamization begins when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their religious privileges. When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well. Here's how it works: As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in: United States -- Muslim 0.6% Australia -- Muslim 1.5% Canada -- Muslim 1.9% China -- Muslim 1.8% Italy -- Muslim 1.5% Norway -- Muslim 1.8% At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs. This is happening in: Denmark -- Muslim 2% Germany -- Muslim 3.7% United Kingdom -- Muslim 2.7% Spain -- Muslim 4% Thailand -- Muslim 4.6% From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims.. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves -- along with threats for failure to comply. This is occurring in: France -- Muslim 8% Philippines -- 5% Sweden -- Muslim 5% Switzerland -- Muslim 4.3% The Netherlands -- Muslim 5.5% Trinidad & Tobago -- Muslim 5.8% At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the entire world. When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris, we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam, with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim sections in: Guyana -- Muslim 10% India -- Muslim 13.4% Israel -- Muslim 16% Kenya -- Muslim 10% Russia -- Muslim 15% After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in: Ethiopia -- Muslim 32.8% At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in: Bosnia -- Muslim 40% Chad -- Muslim 53..1% Lebanon -- Muslim 59.7% From 60%, nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels, such as in: Albania -- Muslim 70% Malaysia -- Muslim 60.4% Qatar -- Muslim 77.5% Sudan -- Muslim 70% After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in: Bangladesh -- Muslim 83% Egypt -- Muslim 90% Gaza -- Muslim 98.7% Indonesia -- Muslim 86.1% Iran -- Muslim 98% Iraq -- Muslim 97% Jordan -- Muslim 92% Morocco -- Muslim 98.7% Pakistan -- Muslim 97% Palestine -- Muslim 99% Syria -- Muslim 90% Tajikistan -- Muslim 90% Turkey -- Muslim 99.8% United Arab Emirates -- Muslim 96% 100% will usher in the peace of 'Dar-es-Salaam' -- the Islamic House of Peace. Here there's supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in: Afghanistan -- Muslim 100% Saudi Arabia -- Muslim 100% Somalia -- Muslim 100% Yemen -- Muslim 100% Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons. 'Before I was nine, I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; the tribe against the world, and all of us against the infidel. -- Leon Uris, 'The Haj' It is important to understand that in some countries, with well under 100% Muslim populations, such as France, the minority Muslim populations live in ghettos, within which they are 100% Muslim, and within which they live by Sharia Law. The national police do not even enter these ghettos. There are no national courts, nor schools, nor non-Muslim religious facilities. In such situations, Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. The children attend madrasses. They learn only the Koran. To even associate with an infidel is a crime punishable with death. Therefore, in some areas of certain nations, Muslim Imams and extremists exercise more power than the national average would indicate. Today's 1.5 billion Muslims make up 22% of the world's population. But their birth rates dwarf the birth rates of Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews, and all other believers. Muslims will exceed 50% of the world's population by the end of this century. Well, boys and girls, today we are letting the fox guard the henhouse. The wolves will be herding the sheep! Obama appoints two devout Muslims to Homeland Security posts. Doesn't this make you feel safer already? Obama and Janet Napolitano appoint Arif Alikhan, a devout Muslim, as Assistant Secretary for Policy Development. DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano swore in Kareem Shora, a devout Muslim who was born in Damascus, Syria, as ADC National Executive Director as a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council (HSAC). NOTE: Has anyone ever heard a new government official being identified as a devout Catholic, a devout Jew or a devout Protestant...? Just wondering. Devout Muslims being appointed to critical Homeland Security positions? Doesn't this make you feel safer already?? Also: This is very interesting and we all need to read it from start to finish. Maybe this is why our American Muslims are so quiet and not speaking out about any atrocities. Can a good Muslim be a good American? This question was forwarded to a friend who worked in Saudi Arabia for 20 years. The following is his reply: Theologically - no . . . Because his allegiance is to Allah, The moon God of Arabia Religiously – no… Because no other religion is accepted by His Allah except Islam (Quran, 2:256)(Koran) Scripturally - no… Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Quran. Geographically – no… Because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he turns in prayer five times a day. Socially - no… Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make friends with Christians or Jews.. Politically - no…Because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America, the great Satan. Domestically - no… Because he is instructed to marry four Women and beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34) Intellectually - no… Because he cannot accept the American Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and he believes the Bible to be corrupt. Philosophically - no… Because Islam, Muhammad, and the Quran do not allow freedom of religion and expression.. Democracy and Islam cannot co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or autocratic. Spiritually - no… Because when we declare 'one nation under God,' the Christian's God is loving and kind, while Allah is NEVER referred to as Heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in The Quran's 99 excellent names. Therefore, after much study and deliberation.... Perhaps we should be very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country. - - - They obviously cannot be both 'good' Muslims and good Americans. Call it what you wish, it's still the truth. You had better believe it. The more who understand this, the better it will be for our country and our future. The religious war is bigger than we know or understand.

New Sign Put Into Service


We just had a new sign made for use in the gospel sign ministry to provoke thought and conversation. So far, it's working quite nicely. The sign says, "The Church, Mary, and the Pope do not save; only JESUS CHRIST saves!"
It is our hearts' desire that the people of Croatia will be gloriously saved. They must turn from their idols to Jesus Christ.

How can I be negative about Islam?





Someone recently wrote and asked, As a Christian how can you be negative about Islam, since the Bible says, "Judge not, that ye be not judged"? 

This is a copy of my response:


Thank you for writing.

"Judge not, that ye be not judged" is frequently taken out of context and misapplied in an effort to silence people who express their thoughts on what is right and what is wrong. 
Some people who do this seem to think that Christians are supposed to sit in glassy-eyed silence with a smile and cheerfully acknowledge every false religion or aberrant behavior as if it makes no difference what anyone does or thinks. 

This short list of reasons easily points out that the scripture you reference does not mean what you apparently think it means: 

1. There are many other scriptures (frequently ignored when wishing to silence someone) that encourage judgement, such as "He that is spiritual judgeth all things" and "judge righteous judgement"

2. The apostles were not martyred for remaining silent or agreeing with every false religion and aberrant behavior they encountered, but for pointing out what was right and what was wrong. (Jesus is the ONLY way to heaven, not just one of many ways, for example.)

3. Throughout scripture it is evident that those on the Lord's side were called upon to draw a clear line of distinction between what is false and what is true.


4. The fact the we all must judge things every day, like which direction is best for our lives, where to live, what work to do, which food is best, which programs are right for our kids and which aren't, which books to read, which advice is best to heed and which to ignore.

Having said that, Islam is not simply a false religion with a false God started by a false prophet who was (as is well-known in Muslim history) a pedophile. Islam is also a political system that has the goal of dominating every people on the face of the earth by whatever means necessary. (Honest or dishonest, peaceful or violent). So, not only does Islamic doctrine lead millions to an eternal lake of fire without Christ as their Saviour, it also seeks to subjugate the entire population of the world under Islamic law - all under the guise of the "Religion of Peace".

The tragedy that is Islam is evident all over the place. Muslims are presently killing each other in Syria, Lybia, Somalia, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, and who knows where else.

Without Islam there would be virtually no terrorists in the world today. 
Islam also subjugates women and children and exalts the man. The men can perform "honor killings" and its OK by Islamic law.

The terror that Muslims wreak on one another is bad enough, much less what they are trying to do in the rest of the world.

Islam has built their own reputation though hijackings, mass murder, suicide vests, IED's, honor killings, acid attacks, bombings, crashing planes into buildings, and recruiting teenage suicide attackers.
Islam is evil and as long as there is breath in my body, I will warn people to not fall for the "religion of peace" foolishness.

The argument that "all Muslims aren't that way" doesn't sit well with me because I never see any headlines about "peaceful Muslims" speaking out against the atrocities I hear of almost every day. 
In any case, tragically, every Muslim who rejects Christ as Saviour and accepts the false teaching of Muhammad will one day burn forever in the lake of fire, and therefore must be warned of the falseness of his/her religion. Jesus clearly declared HE is the ONLY way to heaven - to the exclusion of all others.

Dennis Farina - Heaven or Hell?

Did Cory Monteith ever place his faith for salvation in Jesus Christ and Him alone? Only he and God know that. Certainly, the only thing that matters to him now is his relationship with Jesus Christ because his life tragically ended after only 31 years, and is a sad testament that wealth and fame cannot bring happiness or satisfy the longing of the soul.

This is what the Bible says about how to be saved:
  • John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Being world-famous doesn't save anyone from Hell. Having a fortune in worldly wealth doesn't purchase a place in heaven.
God is not impressed with worldly fame, or great riches or professional talent.

God sent His only begotten Son Jesus to die on the cross to pay for James Gandolfini's sins. God offered him the free gift of eternal life, if only he would believe on Jesus Christ and call out to Him for salvation. God gave James Gandolfini 51 years to accept the free gift of eternal life.

Did he ever receive Jesus as his personal Saviour? If not, it is eternally too late for him.

But it is not yet too late for you.

George Jones - Heaven or Hell?


Anytime a famous person's death is published in the news, the first thought I have is, Did their eternal soul go to heaven or hell? Admittedly, I only know that I am saved and going to heaven and I cannot possibly know about anyone else.
However, I do know from the Bible that worldly fame can't take anyone to heaven.

The only one who can save is Jesus Christ. By faith in Him you can be saved, guaranteeing you a place in heaven for all eternity, regardless of your popularity, talent, or wealth.

Did George Jones ever place his faith for salvation in Jesus Christ and Him alone? Only he and God know that. The only thing that matters to him now is his relationship with Jesus Christ.

This is what the Bible says about how to be saved:
  • John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
  • John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
  • Romans 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
  • Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
  • Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
  • Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
  • Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
  • Acts 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved ...
  • Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
  • John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Being world-famous doesn't save anyone from Hell. Having a fortune in worldly wealth doesn't purchase a place in heaven.
God is not impressed with worldly fame, or great riches or professional talent.

God sent His only begotten Son Jesus to die on the cross to pay for George Jones' sins. God offered him the free gift of eternal life, if only he would believe on Jesus Christ and call out to Him for salvation. God gave George Jones 81 years to accept the free gift of eternal life.

Did he ever receive Jesus as his personal Saviour? If not, it is eternally too late for him.

But it is not yet too late for you.
