  • Column: The fruit of the spirit: Self-control

    The Holy Spirit gives believers in Christ the ability to cultivate self-control, the last fruit mentioned in Galatians 5:22-23.

    This fruit allows believers to keep themselves in check. It includes self-discipline, self-mastery, continence, holding oneself in with a firm hand, and allows us not to be self-indulgent. 

    The old-fashioned word for this is temperance.

    The Bible declares that “he that ruleth his spirit (is better) than he that taketh a city.” 

  • Column: Irma pricing highlights sad truth: Consumer fleecing is new normal

    Since Hurricane Irma put Florida in its sights, there have been thousands of reports of price gouging on everything from water to gasoline.
    The most notable complaint was not, however, the one alleging a $72 charge for a six-pack of water. Rather, it was the $3,200 reportedly asked by Delta for a ticket out of Florida.
    That’s because it wasn’t actually hurricane-related price gouging. Airlines were charging similar fares to last-minute buyers two weeks ago – and have been for years – long before Irma became a threat.
