I know—Jesus knows everything. In an earlier blog, I discussed the attributes and qualities of God. Normally we think of Jesus reacting rather than unveiling His movement. The Godhead is immutable, meaning God never changes. God does no... Read more of this blog post »

The woodshed is an American iconic symbol of old fashioned discipline. The phrase is ingrained in our culture as a place of correction and retribution, a place of payment for disobedience, misdeeds and general naughtiness. Here is where the sinners go to be taught the price of misbehavior.
