*Although most of the sermons posted here are original, I claim no originality. Many writers have influenced me over the years, both in person and in their written material. For their efforts for the Lord, I express my deep appreciation.
Occasionally someone will write quite pointedly and tell me how distracting the typos and/or grammatical mistakes are. First, please understand that these are sermon outlines...not formal papers, and I know the typos are distracting. I will admit that it bothers me some to received unkind comments, but have learned not to be offended when someone tells me this as I have developed a tough skin. (1 Corinthians 13:1-7) Most who write have good intentions are a gracious.
In the spirit of 1 Corinthians 11:1, 6-7, the truth is it is a miracle I am able to write at all having struggled all my life with the learning disability dyslexia. I am in the process of revising each message on the web site (There are over a 350). I never received a lot of encouragement in my early life. One of my High School English teachers said I would never graduate...but I did pass all my subjects in her classes. She told my mom I would fail when I enrolled in college...however with God's help I completed a five year program in four years and earned a bachelor's degree in Theology (ThB). When this teacher learned that I intended in enrolling in graduate school once again she offered no encouragement predicting failure. Yet, I finished my graduate work in 2000 and earned a Master's Degree in Biblical Studies (MBS). I applied for the doctorate program at Bethany Seminary in in 2011 and was accepted. I finished my studied in January 2013 and I am waiting for grade my thesis. If accepted I will graduate in May with a Ph.D. in Bible.
Knowing my past, it is simply a miracle I am able to write at all, but I believe God wants me too...so I do the best I can. Literally hundreds of people from all over the world have e-mailed me over the years telling me how much they appreciated the sermons and articles on the web site. So I think it has helped some. My web site is getting an average of four thousand visitors (not hits) each day. For a long time I did not have anyone to help me with this, but I have someone now who has volunteered and I am slowed working through each article, revising and fixing typos. I continue trying hard to overcome the disability. If you want to help, be kind and tell me tell me where you found the mistakes and I will make the corrections. I do apologize for the errors and distractions. Thank you for your being patient and gracious to me and understanding.
