An Obvious Miracle

I was pretty exhausted after a full weekend of ministry. Kirk, myself and Duane Barnhart, our producer had flown from LA to Chicago, to Springfield, and then driven to Branson in Missouri for a conference. After the conference we had had the great joy of preaching the gospel (open air style) inside ... Read More

Ashamed of Jesus?

Ask the average Christian, "Are you ashamed of Jesus?" and he will more than likely adamantly answer, "Of course not. He's my Lord and Savior." This unashamed boldness to proclaim Christ is seen in the abundance of "Real men love Jesus" and other T-shirts that clearly identify the wearer as belongin... Read More

Avoiding the Wall of Antagonism

The forsaking of the Law’s use in evangelism has made the Church think that apologetics are our great weapon in the battle for the salvation of the world. One could make a convincing case for that thought in what we call "the age of enlightenment," when issues such as evolution and atheism have made... Read More

Be Careful What You Pray

Be careful what you say to God. Experience has taught me that He often answers a prayer, even if it's mumbled. One day I muttered, "Lord, I know I have been preaching the gospel every day to groups of unsaved people, but I really need to do some one-to-one." Later that day, I was in our call center ...

Better Than a HumveeBetter Than a Humvee

Let me tell you about a very personal and memorable incident in my life. On December 5, 2004, I turned fifty-five. A month earlier, a friend called from Texas and asked if he could fly to California to take Sue and I to a "nice restaurant" for my birthday. It seemed a little strange, but I said that... Read More

Do Something

"Brethern, do something, do something, do something! While societies and unions make constitutions, let us win souls." - Charles Spurgeon You may be asking the question as to what you can do in a practical way to reach people for the Kingdom of God. Here are a few suggestions: There are a number of ... Read More

Doctor Luke's Cure

America is deathly sick. The nightly network TV news has become a parade for competing drug companies. Both in news content and advertising we are informed of new drugs that will help in the fight against an onslaught of diseases from breast, to ovarian, to prostate cancer, to heart disease. The pro... Read More

Ever Done Something Dumb?

The year was 1978. I had published a book on drug abuse which had received national publicity. I had also opened a drug prevention center in High Street (a poor choice of street names for a drug center). So it was no surprise when I was suddenly heralded as an expert, and found myself on panels expl... Read More

Family Altar

Establish a family altar. Build it out of unmovable rocks of resolution. Your time of family devotions should (almost) be non-negotiable. It should be priority for your whole family. Don’t be legalistic about it, but as much as you possibly can, put all other things aside before you postpone or canc... Read More

Hells Best Secret (transcript)

In the late seventies, God very graciously opened an itinerant ministry to me. As I began to travel, I found that I had access to church growth records, and found to my horror that something like 80 to 90% of those making a decision for Christ were falling away from the faith. That is, modern evange... Read More

Hollywood and God

Contrary to what many have thought in the past, America is not antagonistic towards the things of God. According to a 2004 CNN poll, an incredible 87% wanted "under God" kept in the Pledge of Allegiance. Contrary to expectations, the blockbuster movie, 'The Passion of the Christ' proved that America... Read More

Honesty Road

The modern message of the gospel is “God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your life.” However, our idea of “wonderful” and the world’s may be a little different. Take a sinner through the pages of the Book of Acts and show him the terrifying scene of boulders breaking the bones of Stephen. The... Read More

How to Befriend Strangers

As I stood in front of the camera, I tried to look relaxed as I said, “I’m going to show you how easy it is to befriend strangers, using tracts.” Kirk Cameron, my associate Mark Spence, and myself were in Canada at the invitation of our Canadian agent (, Pastor Chris Curry, co... Read More

How to Turn Your Greatest Weakness into Your Greatest Strength

I was sitting in Los Angeles airport waiting to fly to Nashville, and offered a tract to a large man who was sitting two seats away from me. He coldly said, "Keep it." I put it back in my pocket and then offered him another tract. Most take this one if they refuse the first. It looks like a business... Read More

It Doesn't Really Matter

There are many reasons that I have no doubts that the Bible is the Word of God. There are fulfilled prophecies, as well as the many scientific and medical facts in the Bible, written thousands of years before man discovered them. But they aren't the main reason I believe that the Bible is the revela... Read More

It Was Nothing Serious

"My father died a few months ago." As I said those words, the tone of a happy phone conversation suddenly changed as I spoke to a man that I had often encouraged to get right with God. He was never openly angered by my words; he actually seemed to enjoy my company, laughing at almost everything I sa... Read More

Kissed or Cussed - The Power of Rejection

I moved outdoors from the bustle of a noisy restaurant to take a call on my cell phone. As I was about to return, I passed a gospel tract to a woman who sat alone at a table. She looked at the tract, then to my surprise jumped up and kissed me on the cheek. I was delighted--not with the kiss, but wi... Read More

Leaving the Pigsty

There are certain words that aren't popular with today's popular preachers. One of them is the word "repentance." We are told that people don't understand its meaning. If that's the case, we should then educate them as to what it means, rather than dumb down the message. Even the secular news doesn'... Read More

Making Grace Amazing

At the end of an article about a comprehensive study, which found that over 260,000 converts of a major denomination's one year's harvesting couldn't be accounted for, the author concluded his commentary by saying, "Something is wrong." It goes without saying that something is wrong, but it has been... Read More

Memos from Hell

If you decide to share your faith, be ready to get a "memo from Hell." The word "memo" is short for "memorandum." According to the dictionary it is "a written proposal or reminder." Your boss will give you a memo telling you what he wants you to do. It's his will for you to fulfill. If you have enli... Read More
