I admit to being a biased old man of 75, and conservative in most of my views. Having set the stage thus, I want to comment about all “the feel good” sermonizing that is apparent in many televised mega-church “productions.” Moreover, that comfortable style of serv...

     Father’s Day comes and goes each and every year. We get dad a goofy tie, a shirt to go with it, or a gift card from Lowe’s and say: “We’ve honored dad!” Have you ever found yourself running around the Saturday before Father’s Day wondering what to get the man who...
