Dr. S.I. McMillen spent many years studying Jewish and Christian writings in search of Biblical principles and directions for living. As a result of this research, he wrote the bestseller book, None of These Diseases, which describes the physical consequences of wrong living. He pointed out that there may be sin in the picture when aches and pains show up: [Read more…]
The Misery of Unforgiveness
A well-groomed man of nearly 60 sought me out after I had spoken at a banquet and said to me, “I’ve got a story you must hear.” I sat with him and heard an amazing testimonial to God’s grace. Here is his story: [Read more…]
Speaking the Truth
“And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works” (Hebrews 10:24).
I was the guest speaker at a church conference and was attending one of those family-style banquets where they pass the platters of food and you eat whatever you want.
