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 As I sit in class this morning waiting for my students to arrive, I cannot help but muse on the Newton’s Cradle sitting just a few feet away. You see, my Bible class room is also the science lab later on in the day, and no good science lab

Taking My Bride For A Ride

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 For the life of me I cannot seem to find the background and origin of the common phrase, “taking someone for a ride.” Everyone agrees that it is an idiomatic expression meaning to cheat or deceive someone, but no one can seem to tell me if it comes from

His books are available on Amazon and at www.wordofhismouth.com We had never done a Trunk or Treat at the church before.

The Day My Life Of Crime Came To An End

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 Our generation seems to be in a constant state of upheaval in regards to law and order. Mankind has always, since the fall of man, had a rebellious sin nature, a tendency to be chafed at authority, and to take a “No one can tell me what to do!”

The Freedom Gained By Accountability

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 As I write this late at night in the relative quiet of my hotel room, I know that it is likely to “make a lot of noise” among some who will view my position on the subject as outdated, antiquated notions from a bygone era. Be that as it

How To Stop Democrats From Destroying The World

By |October 29th, 2020|Tags: , , , , |

I must confess that, when watching the Avengers movies, it was hard for me not to see the faces of prominent Democrats on Thanos. Mind you, I realize that this could well be construed as disrespectful and insulting to Thanos, and for that I apologize. One cannot be too careful; just because I survived the first “Thanos snap,” that is no guarantee I would ever survive a second. Be that as it may, my title is far from hyperbolic. I

A Pleasant Change Is In The Air

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 To say that 2020 has been a bit of a dumpster fire would be, I think we can all agree, a bit of an understatement. And yet, in spite of a world-wide pandemic, Fall seems to have ushered in a new feeling, a different attitude, perhaps. It seems, to

The Folly Of A Conservative Voting For A Third-Party Candidate For President

By |October 25th, 2020|Tags: , , |

Let me begin by acknowledging that I have quite a few friends who have either voted for a third party candidate for President in the past, or are planning to do so this time around. They are very good people, with great ability to espouse why they have done so or are doing so. And their reasons are not without some measure of validity. That said, I believe the reasons not to do so far outweigh the reasons to do

The Importance Of Down Ballot Races

By |October 14th, 2020|

One of the odd phenomena of elections is how very often people in a given state or town pay close attention to and do right in nationwide elections, while either neglecting or mishandling state and local elections. This is one of the reasons a state will often go for a good, conservative presidential candidate, while simultaneously electing governors, judges, representatives, commissioners, and others who are diametrically opposed to the one they voted for at the top of the ticket. In

Why Every Christian Must Vote, And Why It Actually Matters

By |October 9th, 2020|Tags: , , , , , |

The 2020 general election is already upon us. Many states have already begun early voting, and the actual general election day is just right around the corner. And, as in every election, at least three things are guaranteed to be true. One, every Christian should vote, two, many of them won’t, and three, it actually matters. So let’s take time and deal with those things in this paper. On the first point, the fact that every Christian should vote, there

Amy Coney Barrett And The Intersection Of Politics And Faith

By |October 5th, 2020|Tags: , , , , , , |

I often joke with people that, since I was baptized as a baby in the Catholic church, and then came to trust Christ as my Savior later in a non-denominational church, then became a Baptist by doctrinal conviction at a yet later point, I have all of the bases covered in salvation. Mind you, please, that it is just a joke. I am fully aware and fully persuaded that, as Ephesians 2:8-9 puts it “For by grace are ye saved

The Racism Of The Democrat Party

By |October 1st, 2020|Tags: , , , , , , |

“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?” (Alice, in Lewis Carroll’s Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass) Poor Alice; if only she could come to life and see what the Democrat party gets by with in regards to racism, while brazenly projecting their
