REVIVAL CAUTIONS

By David Warn | May 6, 2021 | 0 Comments

A resurgence of voices declaring that revival is coming to America has caught the attention of God’s people from coast-to-coast. In the face of numerous nationwide challenges, it seems that a national revival—what some refer to as a Great Awakening—is necessary to save our nation. And since God loves us, to those who are declaring…

What Does Contending for Truth Look Like in Today’s Culture?

By David Warn | March 10, 2021 | 0 Comments

In my post “Surging Evil: What’s Our Response,” I challenged us to contend against various cultural issues, such as cancel culture, Big Tech censorship, and gender confusion. I wrote, “In America too, there is an intense battle before us—a battle with sobering realities. It is a battle we did not seek but is a battle…

Money in a Time of Crisis (Part 6): God’s Perspective

In seasons of stability, metals, commodities, stocks, bonds, banks, and real estate, all may produce wealth for an investor, of course some better than others. However, this series has not focused on money in stable times, but money in a time of crisis.   With each of these modes of investment currently emitting warning signals, where can we turn for refuge, especially if in…

Money in a Time of Crisis (Part 5): Real Estate

Property prices fell 36%, when adjusted for inflation, between the U.S. real estate peak in 2006 and the year 2012. Since then, real estate prices have been steadily rising and are once more near their pre-recession highs. Low mortgage rates helped to make 2016 a great year for real estate investors, with home values, prices, and…

Money in a Time of Crisis (Part 4): Banks

Banks were once the icon of financial security, but this changed in 2008 when they threatened to usher in an economic apocalypse due to their poor trading habits. Too much borrowing, foolish investments, misguided regulation, and a lack of transparency created a perfect storm that was only quelled by a massive taxpayer bailout known as…

Money in a Time of Crisis (Part 3): Stocks

Some years ago, through a friend’s pass to the New York Stock Exchange floor, I found myself sharing the gospel with a seasoned trader. Before discussing eternal things, he stated that the markets are largely psychological: they react negatively to bad news and surprises but often perform wonderfully during seasons of stability.   Based on…

Money in a Time of Crisis (Part 2): Commodities

To invest in commodities is to invest in a specific item such as grain, precious metals, oil, coffee, natural gas, or orange juice. Rather than putting one’s cash under the mattress, in the bank, or buying stock in the future of a company, are we better off investing in commodities during times of crisis? Put another way, are commodities the refuge that we seek?   At the…

Money in a Time of Crisis (Part 1)

We long for financial security through stocks, bonds, commodities, real estate, savings accounts, and precious metals. But pursuing the accumulation of wealth through each of these means does not provide the certain guarantee that God does. Financial investment for most people will be a fruitful endeavor in seasons of prosperity, but most likely not during…

But What Should I Do?

In my last post, I warned that something sudden could happen to our nation. As I have read the Scriptures related to nations and sought the LORD, I believe this is a real possibility.   The frequent response to such a warning is, “What should I do to prepare?” You can find my answer to…

What If…

On April 20, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon BP oil rig explosion took place in the Gulf of Mexico. Soon eleven workers were confirmed dead, 115 were rescued, the 500 million dollar oil rig disintegrated into the water, and 8,000 barrels of crude oil a day began pouring into the Gulf. All of this happened within…

Local Action Required

As someone who focuses on national topics, I also realize that I need to engage locally. Not only am I referring to sharing my faith, but also the need to stand firm in the public square on all kinds of issues.   Like me, you may find yourself  concerned by  various  national trends, federal policies and laws, and countless alarming activities taking place from coast to coast. But locally—wow—did I have a wake-up call of…

Two Prayers for 2017 (Part 2)

For the last 18 months, presidential primaries, campaigns, debates, the election, and finally the inauguration dominated the news. This is why I posted my last blog that included a prayer focused on the presidency and our government. Now, let’s turn to an equally important topic:  “We the people.”   Whenever “we the people” ask our…
