I'm Just Saying

Dr. Paul Perkins

Join The Adventure!

For an author writing is as necessary as breathing. They don't write for money or to court literary fame, but because they believe they have something to say. It matters not that anyone will read or listen, the words must be written, and if in the process someone is blessed -- all the more wonderful

Dr. Perkins has written for a long time, but only recently has sought to publish his work and venture into new genres. He believes in education, finally earning his doctorate at the age of 55. He believes that learning never ends, giving fodder to the imagination and breathing life into the characters on his page. His hope is to continue telling stories for a new generation of readers and aspiring authors.

Dr. Perkins' first novel is "Centurion: From glory to glory", but is not his first book. He has written "Legacy to my sons", "The Lost Shepherd", "The prayer of a transformed life", "The Cost", and a verity of Christian Youth Devotionals. 

The Sons Of Dissobedience

One thing is for sure, Satan is not inactive. His goal is to keep people from following God through Christ, and to hypocrisy, immorality, division, and apathy among Christians.

The persecution of Christians around the world is horrific. We need to pray daily for their safety and perseverance. Dare I say, however, the greater victory of Satan is not their death, but our complacency. They suffer for the cause, we revel in prosperity. They endure for Christ, and we complain of inconvenience. This to say that Satan is at work.

Keeping us ineffective is to keep others from Christ. Keeping others from Christ perpetuates his kingdom, and he is at work among those who do not believe.

American culture is a prime example of his work. We are increasingly a society that embraces all forms of evil in the name of tolerance, acceptance, and love.

If we speak out we are labeled bigot, hater, intolerant, prudish, and old fashion. If we share the gospel we are intrusive and closed minded. If we shrink away we are labeled cowardly, immature, and barren.

There are no easy and simple answers to the questions raised by the evil one, accept to lay our failures and weaknesses at the cross and endeavor to be obedient. We need to learn that what Jesus said is true: "in this world you will have troubles (the evil one is at work), but do not be afraid, I have overcome the world." 

Yes, the prince of the power of the air is at work in the sons of disobedience, BUT the Spirit of the living Christ is at work in the sons of God!   I'm just saying...

"following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience" Epesians 2:2
