    DR. CUMMINGS: Moses and delegation

    Every leader needs to learn delegation. And I mean “learn.” Just because you’re now the leader of this group, it doesn’t mean you know how to delegate. Think about it. Yesterday you were content just doing your job. Today you have to take your job, divide it up among ...

    DR. CUMMINGS: Yahweh has a strategy

    Can you be a leader without a strategy? Let’s say your market share has shrunk in half and you’re going to be forced to lay off half your staff. What’s your strategy? Or your children have just moved into a new school and they’re flunking every class. How are you going...

    DR. CUMMINGS: Leading with Yahweh Part 3

    Do you ever think of God as a politician? Those two words just don’t seem to fit together in the same sentence, do they? Politicians play favorites. Surely a God would not do that. U.S. presidents staff their administrations with buddies and relatives. CEO’s do the same thing. But ...

    DR. CUMMINGS: What’s your vision?

    Two weeks ago, I wrote about the author of the book of Exodus who painted God as a leader. Many of the other biblical authors paint God as a warrior or a dreamer or a lover. Here we’re given the image of a 21st century CEO. The author has Yahweh (God) taking the first two steps each one of...

    DR. CUMMINGS: Wasting your time

    Bob Carnot of Warner Robins wrote a letter to the editors last Wednesday. He cautioned readers Stooksberry Wade and D.T. Wallace and anyone else who believes in the inerrancy and infallibility of the Bible to avoid me. He quoted Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians where Paul is demanding...

    CUMMINGS: Yahweh — a boss or a leader?

    Do you read the Bible? I bet you do. Do you find that sometimes God is a bossy, mean bully (like Leviticus 20:9-10 and Deuteronomy 7) and at other times he’s a helper who’s always around (like Ps.46)? He wants us to “love our neighbor” (1Cor. 13) and then “hate...

    CUMMINGS: Are you a leader or a boss?

    How do you tell the difference between a leader and a boss? Many times we use the two words interchangeably, but they’re really very different. If you’re a parent, do your children see you as the person who will lead them to a better life, or as the bully who keeps them quiet? If you...

    DR. CUMMINGS: D.T. Wallace, one more time

    I love this Opinion Page and the Letters to the Editors. When I get my Sunday paper, I always come here first. This is where controversy can flourish in a totally unimpeded way because “it’s my opinion versus yours.” I can’t claim to be “right” and scream...

    DR. CUMMINGS: Don’t underthink it

    D.T. Wallace wrote a letter to the editors last Tuesday about my column on questioning faith and made this statement:

    DR. CUMMINGS: Trading marbles

    When I was a kid, I remember drawing a big circle in the dirt on the outskirts of the playground. Tommy put in his five marbles, and I put in mine. Both of us checked each other’s marbles for scratches, and then we shot for the wall to see who played first. I won. I knelt down, pulled out...
