Dear Friends,

I’m so sorry I’ve been so delinquent on my posts.  I will try to be more regular about them.

Things have been going well.  It has been a good year of refreshing with the Lord in His Word and with my wife.  God has been very gracious to us.  I’ve done some traveling and preaching/teaching.  The trip to Ecuador in August was certainly a highlight as was getting to know Brannon Howse as a friend.  I have spoken for him at a couple of Worldview Weekend conferences and have greatly enjoyed those opportunities.

I recently wrote an article on Santa Clause.  Honestly, for far too long my “discernment” had been focused too much on one issue – the Word of Faith / Prosperity gospel.  Discernment, however, should encompass far more than that.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m still very much committed to this area and am just as passionate, if not more so, than ever before.  It’s just that I’m also trying to exercise discernment in other areas as well.  One of these, believe it or not, is Santa Claus.  In short, Santa is a problem for the discerning Christian – or at least should be in my estimation.  As you will read in the article, it was not until this past year that I really thought through Santa from a biblical perspective.  I submit to you the following article for your consideration.  Just click on “Santa Pause” below:

Blessings to you and yours,

Justin
