Who’s to Blame for Columbus Setting Sail Anyway?

October 10, 2022 by


WILLIAM FEDERER  ~ Why did he travel West to go East? Columbus set sail on his first voyage AUGUST 3, 1492, with the Nina, Pinta and the Santa Maria. He explained how the Spanish monarchs approved his plan: “… And ordained that I should not go by land (the usual way) to the Orient (East), […]


October 10, 2022 by


RON HELLE  ~ Through suffering I learn endurance, which produces hope. I have hope because Jesus has said that He has overcome the world. “Your house is flooded,” said my friend over the cellphone. Graphic images flooded my mind given that Houston, Texas, had devastating flood damage from Tropical Storm Harvey, dumping up to 52″ […]

RON HELLE  ~ How do we as men stand against the cultural tide? Let me offer two thoughts. It was a long-ago boat excursion somewhere along the Florida coast.

Gate Crashers

September 5, 2022 by


RON HELLE  ~ Have any of you been attacked by a gate lately? Inquiring minds want to know. The night sound of insects and the crackle of a small fire were suddenly shattered by the sound of the explosion. Operating in the lowland rice paddies of the An Hoa Valley, we had determined that the […]

Made for Battle

August 28, 2022 by


RON HELLE  ~ The reality is that we were made for battle. In the Old Testament many of God’s chosen men were warriors. Some years ago, our men’s group did a video series based on John Eldridge’s book, Wild at Heart. It was an exceptional study. Session five is titled “A Battle to Fight.” Now think […]

Not Ashamed!

August 7, 2022 by


RON HELLE / AUGUST 5, 2022 “I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes.” I could feel the blood rush to my face. We have a term for this in the Marine Corps: “Good initiative, bad judgement!” In this case it wasn’t even good […]

‘Run, Forrest, Run!’

June 5, 2022 by


Ron Helle  ~ Christians are to be runners with a message, but in our present day, the message has become garbled. ~   That line, “Run, Forrest, run!” is one of my favorites from the classic 1994 movie, “Forrest Gump.” Forrest is wearing braces on his legs and some bullies are after him. Jenny, his childhood […]

Empty Nets

May 15, 2022 by


Ron Helle  ~ It’s when we get off course that God will bring about some empty nets into our lives. ~   “In Jesus’ name, I take dominion over the fish in the sea!” I’m embarrassed now, but as a new believer I used that prayer every time I went fishing. Apparently, I “lacked faith,” or […]

Oil Change — A Parable

May 8, 2022 by

Ron Helle ~ It’s when we turn our back on the enemy that we tend to get “struck down,” because our armor is for offense, not defense. There’s no armor on our back.“ ~   If my insurance agent ever saw me driving like this, my rates would go through the roof!” I thought to myself. […]


April 16, 2022 by


Ron Helle  ~ Some of us want to follow Jesus from afar. Like Peter, we don’t want to get so close to Him that people think we’re His disciples. ~   Although he had covered this ground many times, he still maintained a heightened sense of alertness. If several years in Vietnam had taught him anything, […]

Mission Impossible

April 10, 2022 by


Ron Helle  ~ Maybe it’s time to let God do some “Mission Impossible” work in your life? Admit it: Watching Tom Cruise hanging off the side of an aircraft taking off from an airstrip was exciting to watch. Impossible, of course, but that’s the whole gist of the genre. Just like climbing Burj Khalifa, a […]

Hatred Sells

April 7, 2022 by


Roger Helle ~ Choose to love your enemies rather than hate them. Their hatred blinds them while our love can help them see. ~ I believe many of us in America are exhausted by the leftists’ constant bombardment upon those they disagree with as haters, racists, bigots, or whatever pops into their mind. It’s endless […]

April 2, 2022 by


Ron Helle  ~ A good mystery novel used to be called a page-turner. I don’t want my story to be a slow, plodding, and boring one. I want it to be a mystery action novel. ~    Let’s say that I’m watching a Hallmark mystery movie with my bride (strictly hypothetical, of course). A number […]

Ears to Hear

March 20, 2022 by


Ron Helle ~ God gets a bad rap these days. I have had people tell me the Bible is too hard to understand. ~   Some time back I made a trip to our local VA clinic about getting an upgrade to my hearing aids. I don’t go to the VA for much, but its audiology […]

The Master’s Return

March 5, 2022 by


Ron Helle  ~ If you were to ask most honest believers today if they were looking for the Lord’s return, many would likely say, “Not so much.” Going back to our adoption of Murphy, as I previously indicated, he had contracted distemper before receiving the usual vaccinations prior to being adopted. He was one sick […]

The Master’s Voice

February 20, 2022 by


Ron Helle  ~ We live in a world that mistreats us all and as a result we are distrustful of people and their intentions. Just before Thanksgiving in 2005, I left the country, embarking on a new adventure. My life philosophy is that “the only thing you can plan on is that nothing goes according […]

What Would Jesus Do?

December 6, 2020 by


How is it that those who should be leading the fight to preserve our religious rights are doing even less than I am, and I’m not even religiously observant?  ~ Burt Prelutsky  ~    . A while back, it became something of a fad with people asking what kind of car Christ would drive, who […]

Democrats Finally ‘Telling’ the Truth

October 1, 2020 by


Burt Prelutsky · ~   Dr. Barbara Ferrer, the Public Health Director of Los Angeles, let the proverbial cat out of the proverbial bag when she announced the other day that “We don’t realistically anticipate that we would be moving to reopening K-12 schools at least until we’re done with the election.” In the past, […]
