    DR. BILL CUMMINGS: WOMEN AND THE BIBLE

    The Bible is one of the most anti-feminine, “down with women” books in the library. Oh, sure, you can find passages (and even small books like Esther and Ruth) that exalt the role of certain women, but for the most part, the Hebrew and Christian Bibles are openly, blatantly misogynistic...

    BILL CUMMINGS: Hospital talk

    We should only write about what we know. I think I know hospitals. No, I’m not an expert by any means, but I think I’m qualified to talk about them. After all, I spent 10 years as the vice president of Charter Medical Corp. when we owned over 80 hospitals, and then 20 years as the ...

    DR. CUMMINGS: Mr. President, what about Sgt. Tahmooressi?

    Dear Mr. President, I know you’re busy, and I’ve waited until after your vacation to write this because I sure don’t want to interrupt your golf game again. But what about our veteran of two tours in Afghanistan? Remember? On March 31, Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi accidentally drove...

    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...
