Actually doing what James suggests about the Bible, and a bit about anger

Actually doing what James suggests about the Bible, and a bit about anger

James 1:19-27 Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; 20 for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.

The older I get, the more I feel like a parent cringing at some of the choices you see these cowboys make that you know are going to hinder their careers or hurt them in some way you’d like to protect them from.
Most often you can’t and just have to be there for them should [...]

Sheriff Andy and the Apostle Paul on Respect

Andy Griffith as Sheriff Andy Taylor: When you’re a lawman and you’re dealing with people, you do a whole lot better if you go not so much by the book but by the heart.”
I don’t carry a gun because I don’t want the people of Mayberry to fear a gun. I’d rather they would respect [...]

About Riding for Christ Ministries

The sports of bull riding and rodeo are among the fastest growing sports in North America. They require dedication and commitment for just a few to make it to the top.

Christianity has long been rooted in the cowboy culture and that history ties it to the sports... Read More
