When Modesty Becomes Vanity

"There is a generation that is pure in its own eyes, yet is not washed from its filth. There is a generation - how haughty its eyes and pretentious its looks." - Proverbs 30:12-13 (HCSB)

Debates over modesty in dress have arisen at one time or another in almost every sect laying claim to a position within Christendom.  These have ranged from debates among European Roman Catholics in regard to whether it was acceptable for women to dress as men in order to escape being raped by passing Christian Crusaders on their way to the Holy Land to wage war against the Muslims to a late 19th century debate within Methodism as to whether lace on a Sunday bonnet was too ostentatious if worn in the buggy on the way to the Meeting House.

The subject of these debates has not always been women.  In fact, a cold war has raged among various sects of Anabaptists for hundreds of years on the subject of men's facial hair.  Some argue that only married men should have beards while others say bea…

How a Cube of Ice Melted My Heart

"For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward." - Mark 9:41 (KJV)

I was in a Mayan Indian village in the western area of the Toledo District of Belize at a fairly new preaching point that had been established by the native Pastor from Indianville near the coast.  About a dozen of us had jammed into my little Suzuki SUV to conduct a worship service in the thatched roof hut used normally as a home but, on special occasions, became a place of worship.  
The home was a traditional Mayan dwelling with thatched leaves for a roof, pimento sticks bound together for walls, low interior beams supporting the structure, dirt floors and no electricity.  The house was illuminated by glass bottles filled with kerosene suspended from the beams by rope with a small cloth wick alive with a dim, but dancing, flame.  
When we arrived, the family was busily putting rough wood benches in place and…

"And Jesus rebuked Thomas..." Or did He?

"Now Thomas, one of the Twelve, called the Twin, was not with them when Jesus came.  So the other disciples told him, 'We have seen the Lord,' but he said to them, 'Unless I see in his hands the mark of the nails, and place my finger into the mark of the nails, and place my hand into his side, I will never believe." - John 20:24-25

People who have never read the Bible are still familiar with the terminology, "Doubting Thomas."  This is because of the event outlined in John 20:24-29 and the stigma attached to the Apostle Thomas for his lack of faith after the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  But did you ever stop to consider that his lack of faith might have been reasonable?  Think of what this man had just been through.  We do not know exactly how long Thomas had been following Jesus but we can reasonably conclude that it was a period of at least a couple of years.  What remarkable things Thomas saw in that time!

Consider back in John 11 when news came of…
