Bo Wagner is pastor of the Cornerstone Baptist Church of Mooresboro, NC, a widely traveled evangelist, and the author of several books. His books are available on Amazon and at www.wordofhismouth.com My late grandmother, Yvonne Nuhrah, was an Avon lady extraordinaire. She perfected what we kids and grandkids dubbed “the Avon walk.” Though standing only a bit over five feet tall, when she started around the neighborhood with any of us in tow, her feet seemed to take on a

His books are available on Amazon and at www.wordofhismouth.com I had a unicorn in church today. Not a four-legged, mythical kind of unicorn, mind you, but a two legged unicorn in a pretty pink dress. She came twirling up onto the platform to greet me as she, and most of our other young kids in church, do each

His books are available on Amazon and at www.wordofhismouth.com I suppose I knew that I was stressed and in need of a break, but it was not until I sat on the steps overlooking the water, feeling the cool air of the night, that I even began to understand just how fully that was true. Dana and I

“A New Beginning”

Bo Wagner is pastor of the Cornerstone Baptist Church of Mooresboro, NC, a widely traveled evangelist, and the author of several books.  His books are available on Amazon and at www.wordofhismouth.com I have always found the proximity of Christmas and New Years to be a rather fitting arrangement. Yes, the “Christmas sniffers” have informed me, many times, in fact, that they are quite sure Christ was not born on December 25. What is a Christmas sniffer, you ask? When you

It was bad enough that she was barren; ten years without a child had left her no doubt of that. But now she was also a young widow. She stood staring

Welcome To The Family, Kanye

By |November 10th, 2019|

It seems that “buzz” does not begin to adequately describe what has been generated by the profession of faith in Christ from Kanye West. But what I have found a bit perplexing are the questions from some as to whether or not someone like him could actually be genuinely born again. Mind you, I do not know his heart more than anyone else’s heart. His heart is not the point on that question; God’s heart is the point. 2 Peter

A Merry Heart And Fantasy Football

By |November 4th, 2019|

Sometimes it is not just good to take time out for laughter, it is also actually Biblical and beneficial. Proverbs 17:22 says, “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.” As a preacher, I often am compelled to write and preach on things that deal with sin, sorrow, current (usually bleak) world events, and the like. But not today. Today I just want to give you a Biblically based smile… My love of

The Lowered Truck Methodology Of Preaching

By |October 27th, 2019|

I watched as the truck, if it could still be referred to as such, teetered like a see-saw on the speed bump. It was the early nineties, in the midst of the “lowered truck” era. For those unaware of that era and phenomenon, please allow me to explain. In those days people would take a perfectly good truck, a truck with enough power to get from point A to point B all while hauling a piece of furniture on the

The Right Caliber Of Words

By |October 21st, 2019|

Perspicacious, ubiquitous, calamitous, cacophonous, irascible. I know what all of those words mean and can use them correctly in a sentence. I also am not commonly heard saying, “Hey, Y’all, watch this!” nor do I eat livermush, listen to country music (except for “He Stopped Lovin’ Her Today”, but you have to be a communist to dislike that) or ever touch alcohol. Our home is lovely and clean. I need to make sure you understand all of that before I

Sharia Law: Caveat Emptor

By |October 15th, 2019|Tags: , |

Keith Ellison. Andre Carson. Ilhan Omar. Rashida Tlaib. These names have two interesting things in common. One, they are all Democrat congressmen and congresswomen in the United States House of Representatives. Two, they are all Muslims. And while Muslims, like Christians, are not all the same, they also, like Christians, have a common code of law that attends their religion. For Muslims, Sharia is “the path.” It is the expected behavior of everyone under its domain. Seeing Islam become more

My Embarrassing Finger

By |October 14th, 2019|Tags: , |

As I sit typing this column, I am not the least bit distracted by my two finger, hunt-and-peck style of typing. No, I got that from my genius grandfather, and I can type as fast this way as most people can who use the “accepted and appropriate” style of typing. But what I am distracted by is my ring finger on my left hand, the finger that has for more than twenty-five years been home to the simple gold band
