Over ONE HUNDRED TWENTY stories in audio form posted so far!
On this new site I read some of the world's great tales and compare their messages to the things God has told His people. For example, in The Ugly Duckling one can see a picture of the rejected Jesus.
I also share some North Korea stories. True ones. And all of "God's Trombones" by James Weldon Johnson. A series of personal stories of my walk with the Lord through the years is there. The parables of Jesus are being added, and Grimm's Fairy Tales.
I am presently adding stories of the GREAT HYMNS of the Church.
I have discontinued the audio transcripts of my Romans study, due to seeming lack of interest. If someone was using the blog, however, preferring reading over listening, contact me and I will reinstate this feature. Bob Faulkner

(CONTINUED FROM 31 A above) “… to demonstrate His righteousness…” This brings us back to verse 21, that a righteousness separate from the law of Moses has been revealed in Christ, and the first part of this verse,...[ abbreviated | read entire ]
“But now…” Been to a Bulls game lately? The announcer slowly and boringly wades through the names of the opposing team. So and so, center, so and so, guard….zzzz. Then what? Lights flash. Excitement in the arena...[ abbreviated | read entire ]
3:24 “being justified freely by His grace…” A ton of treasure in these verses. So much there that we don’t want to be in a hurry here. You just got a mouthful of meaning and it is important to chew your food a long...[ abbreviated | read entire ]
3:9 “What then? Are we better than they?” Therefore, what? I’ve just shown you that, in spite of their sin, God chose Israel and gave them a very specific advantage, namely the words of God Himself! What have I proved? That...[ abbreviated | read entire ]
3:12 “They have all turned aside…” Psalm 14:3 reads the same way. And the Greek ekklino “gone out of the way” in the KJV has to do with deviating from the norm. A soldier running the wrong way, even deserting....[ abbreviated | read entire ]
