Becoming a Cultural Conscience

Written by Bob Crittendon

This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. (1st John 1:5-7, NAS)

Why Not Give a Goat This Christmas?

Written by Bob Crittendon

They gave the gifts to each other, Joseph, not to our Son…I don’t think they even knew Him. They never mentioned His name. Doesn’t it seem odd for people to go to all that trouble to celebrate someone’s birthday if they don’t know Him?

Show Justice, Love Mercy

Written by Bob Crittendon

Statistical knowledge can affect us in a variety of ways. It can fill our minds with information that basically has no relevance to us personally, or can tell us a story to which we can respond with Biblical action.

Thoughts About Trust

Written by Bob Crittendon

There was a time in America when a handshake meant that two parties agreed with each other, when people believed the best of one another, and when the words of someone’s mouth were reliable. These are values that are consistent with Biblical principles, such as “Thou shalt not bear false witness” or “Let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes’ and your ‘No’ be ‘No’”. But, in an age of moral relativism, when so many people engage in doublespeak and swim in a sea of ambiguity, collectively, we could ask the question, “So, who do you trust?”

“Hyperadjectivity”

Written by Bob Crittendon

Lawmakers in Washington held their noses recently as they voted on legislation raising the debt ceiling, authorizing the U.S. Government to borrow more money in order to meet its obligations. A number of those lawmakers, some of whom were elected in 2010 advocating a message of a more responsible government, contributed to making this a watershed moment - they decided that the nation did not need to borrow more money without cutting spending. As the debate heightened, some advanced the idea of raising taxes to generate more revenue, while others believed that only spending reductions were necessary.

Affirming Life

Written by Bob Crittendon

The founders of our country were forthright in declaring that we, as human beings, are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights, including life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. According to Psalm 139, each of us was designed in our mother’s womb by God and have a right to live. In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court created a conflicting right, a right for a woman to decide whether or not to give birth to her unborn child, and following the Roe vs. Wade ruling, over 50 million babies have lost their lives. Amazing to think about, isn’t it? Americans recently became so caught up in the court trial of a mother who was charged with murdering her 2-year-old child, and so many were offended when Casey Anthony was found “not guilty”, but where is the outrage when there are children who lose their lives every day in America before they even exit the womb?

What If It Were True?

Written by Bob Crittendon

Around 9:00 on the morning of Saturday, May 21, I checked the Internet for the latest news, and determined, since there had not been a rash of natural disasters in parts of the world where 6 pm had already passed, that the world would not end that day. That was no surprise…

The Community I’d Like to Live In

Written by Bob Crittendon

The room was full of anticipation and apprehension as about a dozen people gathered with two discussion leaders for a “Community Conversation”, as part of the “Believe It!” campaign, sponsored by the Montgomery Education Foundation. The session I attended was part of a series of community gatherings intended to collect from people throughout the community about how to improve education in our area.

The Intersection; What’s Your Code?

Written by Bob Crittendon

The news shocked the world of college basketball, just weeks before that annual tradition known as “March Madness” was set to begin. Brigham Young University was strategically placed in the Top 10, enjoying a high level of success, which was threatened by the suspension of one of its star players, center Brandon Davies. The story is quite familiar now – Davies was kicked off the BYU team not because of theft, public drunkenness, academics, or drug usage – no, Brandon Davies was dismissed because of…
