Daily Devotions


If you support our national security issues, you may love and appreciate the United States of America, our Constitution with its’ freedoms, and our American flag.

If you support and practice our fiscal issues, you may value worldly possessions.

If you support and value our social issues, you may love Judeo-Christian values.

If you support and practice all these values, that is all good; an insignia of “Wisdom” . - Oscar Y. Harward

Why do so many fail to attend a “House of Worship” on a regular basis?


In every community, approximately 50% or more are not attending a “House of Worship” on a regular basis.

In earlier years, most of our younger children were taught the importance of “God’s Word”. Prior to the Supreme Court of the United States’ (SCOTUS) 1963 decision to remove Bible reading from our public schools, everyone in the public schools listened to a “Christian Devotion” in the mornings. With that teaching/learning, almost everyone went to some “House of Worship” on Sunday mornings further learning from the prayers, the music, the messages, and the fellowship with friends and neighbors.  

Our Biblical principles in public schools were based on “Judeo-Christian” values as defined by the Founding Fathers of our US Constitution.  The1963 SCOTUS decision http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/scripts/getcase.pl?court=us&vol=374&invol=203 outlawed prayer in schools; a decision the SCOTUS should be asked to reconsider. 

Each and every “House of Worship” is “God’s House”. Today, most “Houses of Worship” are excluding their older “Hymnal” editions while changing over to contemporary music. While contemporary music may be acceptable what is wrong with the “old time” music and lyrics from their own specific “House of Worship” “Hymnal” editions?  

Ministers, Pastors, Clergy, etc. are becoming afraid to preach the Gospel in fear of offending others and/or losing their jobs. Many of these leaders seem to be afraid to tell the congregation that unless they repent, they are going to Hell. It is so much easier for some leaders to make the message “sweet” and without any “unyielding bitterness” in their message. From the pulpit, lectern, etc., many congregations are hearing a “dwindling of God’s Word. 

We are told that the newer changes are the only ways of getting the younger generation into the House of Worship. Hogwash! Many of the young generations, as well as the older ones, are crying out for an “old-time” all-encompassing message from God’s Word. 

It is important for “Houses of Worship” to teach and lead, “at all cost”, under God’s law, the Holy Bible, and be less concerned with comfort. Sometimes, it is easier to learn the truth wherever and whenever it may be unpleasant. 

It is a sad day in the USA when some 50% or more are not attending any “House of Worship” on a regular basis. Are members of the Judeo-Christian community becoming soft on “firm values”? Many are searching for “wisdom” from God above.
