The Ramey Commentaries (TM) By Mike Ramey

     One of my favorite illustrations of the divorce issue rests in the plight of an elected official years ago.  This lawmaker was a ‘tough guy’ on the issue of child support.  He bucked and stomped in our Indiana Statehouse, calling for toughened penalties against those men and women who were involved with the system.  When non-custodial parents would come to the statehouse to express their views on the unfairness of the laws that lawmakers created, he objected the loudest.

     Before we get into the last part of this series, I wanted to inject a few things which surfaced before I made the decision of putting this column to bed and shipping it out.

     I happened to have a conversation with a veteran Minister whom I have a lot of respect.  His attitude towards Ministers and regular Christians being involved in politics?  Not very supportive.  He believes that Christians in general, and Ministers (Pastors included) should stay out of the political arena.  Yes, we s

REFUSING THE VERY APPEARANCE OF EVIL

“Abstain from all appearance of evil.”

--I Thessalonians 5:22 KJV

 

     A few years back I had a sit-down with a veteran cop who had lots of experience when it came to fighting gang crime.  One of the things that surfaced during our conversation was the fact that gang bangers had taken to setting up ‘front’ businesses in our city through which to funnel and launder cash and stolen merchandise.  Businesses from laundromats to barber shops and beauty parlors were

“I’m convinced that millions of people today don’t know the Lord because of the long faced, poor, suffering little me, self-sacrificing, tell-everybody-all-their-troubles Christians who act like their second birth was just as painful to them as their first one was to their mothers.”

--Zig Ziglar

“Confessions of a Happy Christian”

 

     In going through a few clearance items at a local bookstore, I happened across a gem that was written by the late Zig Ziglar.  Now, those who are familiar with Zigl

“Prayer is far too often the LAST thing that people—even those who know better—bother to try!”

--Pastor Chuck Smith

 

     IF one wants to be successful in home, business, or the workplace, they must read and heed the rule book.  For those who claim the name of Christian, our rule book is the KJV Bible.  Whatever paperwork and manuals come AFTER the Bible may have rules attached to them and are merely meant to fall into line with the materials already outlined in the Scriptures.  IF one does not h

“You ask his protection, but how can you expect it if you are not agreed with him?”

--Charles Haddon Spurgeon

 

     In one of my favorite comic strips, a boy and his father were having their typical argument over spending money.  The boy expected his father to serve as his personal ATM machine; the father insisted that the boy did his chores around the house to earn his spending cash.  Keep in mind that this boy went to church every Sunday with his family.

 

     He made the classic mistake of tryi

POSITIONED FOR: THE COMING THING

“Sometimes, we are waiting for God’s blessings; sometimes, God’s blessings are waiting for us!”

--Mike Ramey, Syndicated Columnist

 

     One of my favorite modern westerns is: “The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.”  It ran only one season during the early 1990s but packed a lot of punch in a small package.  Legendary character actor Bruce Campbell played the lead—with a very strong supporting cast. 

 

     One of the underlying themes of the show was the dawning of th

The Ramey Commentaries by Mike Ramey

The rent-a-mob has gotten what they wanted. Unfortunately, they are only weeks away from not being satisfied with what they got. At the bottom line, when you call 9-1-1, a social worker or youth program is not going to protect you, your family or your business. It’s that Blue Knight who will be risking their life to keep you safe…IF your city still has a police department, fully funded.

One of my favorite war flicks is 1949’s “Battleground”. In brief, the film deals with the fictionalized adventures of a segment of the famed 101st Airborne Division during WWII. The 101st suffered great losses and hardships holding a city by the name of Bastogne until help arrived. The film’s climax comes as the surviving members of the unit were finally relieved, and got their orders to retire from the fighting.

As they were marching out, in the distance, they could see a new outfit of fresh tr
