  • Tax reform movement is growing

    Dr. Richard Gilbert of Hodgenville was recently found guilty of tax evasion in a Louisville court. I can’t think of a family more moral and upstanding than the Gilberts. They’re the modern equivalent of The Waltons meets Little House On The Prairie. How could someone so moral and honest to a fault be convicted of tax evasion? His fault and folly was standing on principle and speaking truth to power. The questions he asked the IRS and later posed in court can be distilled to form one simple question. Could you please show me the law that requires me to pay these taxes?

  • Bible doesn’t reveal the 'seven thunders'

    Revelation 10:1-7 discusses the mighty angel with the little book. The seven thunders uttered their voices, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, seal up the things which the seven thunders uttered and do not write them.

    In these verses, the seven thunders are not revealed.

    Revelation 10:8-11: John eats the little book.

  • Problems come to each of us

    Problems come to everyone. The Apostle Peter said, “Don’t be surprised when you have problems.” Jesus said, “In this world you will have tribulation.” We don’t know when they may come. For example, you don’t plan a flat tire. Trials come in all shapes and sizes.

  • Don't let mosquitoes take the joy out of summer

    Along with the joys of summertime outdoor activities comes the not-so-joyful likelihood of encountering mosquitoes. While we can’t control the entire outdoors, there are control measures that help eliminate potential breeding sites that provide the quiet, non-flowing water these bothersome pests need to develop.
