Optimistic Realists

on . Posted in "Making a Difference"

It's the age-old question, are you a glass half empty or a glass half full person?

"Making a Difference"

"The Bible Speaks To Gender Confusion"

Gender confusion has become the forefront of sexes politics-- and how should we respond to this now... important issue?

Blessings to you from:
"Not License, Not Legalism, But Liberty"

Borrowing from Ezekiel, the late Christian philosopher Francis Schaeffer once entitled a book, "How Shall We Then Live?" It's a relevant question--how shall we live?
"Animal Kingdom"

It's a wonder how far we have come in the limited time we've been on earth. While many credit innovation, perseverance, and knowledge... it's easy to forget the unsung heroes... animals.
"Voting for the “Faith” Candidate"

During election season, candidates flaunt their religious convictions like peacocks... all in attempt to stand out from the crowd. But how can you differentiate sincere faith... from political pandering?

 artgift"Art Is A Divine Human Gift"

It's everywhere... some of it we understand; some of it, we don't. Some of it is priceless, and some of it... not so much. What place does art play in our lives?
"Responding to Betrayal"

We've all been stabbed in the back... and we all know the resulting pain.  But how does our response play a key roll in overcoming...betrayal?
"A Chance Beginning-A Chance Ending"

Have you ever thought about why you were born on a certain day? Or how about the day you die? Do you believe there is a reason? Or is it just chance?

"The Travesty of Abortion"

It's the issue that still divides our nation. The bell tolls for millions of lives taken by abortion and affects the lives of millions more. 
"Economics, Politics, And Morality"

It's a universal experience for everyone, despite age, race, or creed. How morality plays a role in our everyday life, whether we realize it or not.
or"Optimistic Realists"

It's the age-old question, are you a glass half empty or a glass half full person?


I've heard people tell me, "If it wasn't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all." But what if I told you the existence of 'luck' is as likely as the existence of "leprechauns"?

Blessings to you from:
"Caring for the Environment"

There are few topics more polarizing than global warming. Why should Christians care about our environment?
isgodonourside"Is God on Our Side?"

Sometimes people ask if God is on our side, if Christians will always be blessed. Even Abraham Lincoln asked this question. But, is this the question we really should be asking?


Can a Christian be a patriot and be true to the faith? The question is not whether a Christian can be a patriot, but what he or she is a patriot for or about. Responsible Christian patriotism is thinking patriotism. It exalts biblical values. Christians can be patriotic. We just have to be patriotic about the right things.
trad"Tragedy and Theodicy"

When we hear of earthquakes, school shootings, wars and other tragedies the question is always asked, "Where was God?" People wonder why a loving and caring God would allow this to happen. Dr. Rex M. Rogers gives biblical insight to this age old question.

"Celebrity Christians"

Making "Celebrity Christians" larger than life is nothing new. As Dr. Rogers points out, we even see it in the Scriptures.
 "Religion as a Qualification for the Presidency"

Our Founding Fathers gave us a gift, the gift of No Religious Test for a president. This gift gives presidential candidates the freedom of worship, and it gives us, the citizens, the freedom to vote, or not to vote him or her into higher office.
"Smart Money"

There is a lot of talk today about money. There is advice on how to spend, how to save, and of course, the never ending offers for credit cards. The Scriptures have a lot to say about money. Follow the wisdom of the Scriptures when deciding how to use yours. 

Litter, litter, litter. It's everywhere! While some littering is unintentional, most often it is done intentionally. Why are so many people careless about something that not only mars God's beautiful creation, but hurts us all?
 imga"What’s the Christian View of Immigration?"

Everyone seems to have an opinion today on immigration. Dr. Rex M. Rogers examines this complex issue from a biblical perspective.
donk"Listening to the Donkeys in Your Life"

There is an interesting passage in the book of Numbers about Balaam and his donkey. Balaam was so spiritually blind that God had to use a donkey to speak to him. Is God trying to speak to you today? Listen closely. He may be using the donkeys in your life.
"A Christian Perspective On Immigration"

We are all immigrants in one way or another... so why is the issue of Immigration such a hot topic? And how might our Christian faith influence our views?
"Giving Away Stuff"

An all American problem: Got Stuff? Give it away!
