    DR. CUMMINGS: The little ledge in hell

    Many years ago, a little 8-year-old girl sat in church with her mother. Every Sunday and every Wednesday she listened to her pastor urging everyone to “receive Jesus in your heart and come forward.” She would watch her little friends fold their hands and march smugly up to the altar...


    DR. CUMMINGS: Grist for the sermon mill

    This morning and every Sunday morning, Christian pastors all over Middle Georgia will be searching for sermon material. “How can I keep them awake this morning?” I know this because I had to do it for 10 years myself. It ain’t easy.


    DR. CUMMINGS: Our Bible — one more time

    When I talked about our Bible three weeks ago, I knew I would get some interesting comments -- and I did. One of them urged me to ask God to open my heart so I could read HIS scriptures and find the truth. I understand this comment and I really do appreciate the love and concern that prompted it...


    DR. CUMMINGS: The 3 T’s

    We have enjoyed the leadership of a good boss and suffered through the foibles of a bad boss. We know the difference when we see it, but do we know how they got that way? What makes a loving father and husband become a tyrant at work? Why does a strong and common-sense mother give up her leadership...


    DR. CUMMINGS: I’m right; you’re wrong

    The most rewarding thing about writing these opinion columns is the reverse-opinion feedback that keeps appearing daily in the online edition of the paper, as well as the letters to the editor. Readers have their own opinions about politics, religion and life, and their opinions are absolutely right...


    DR CUMMINGS: How do you read your Bible?

    I was born and raised in an Irish Catholic neighborhood on the south side of Chicago where nobody read the Bible. We didn’t have to read it. Our parish priest told us everything God wanted us to know. (I wonder if it’s still that way?)


    Dr. CUMMINGS: I love Mary Magdalene

    I can’t help it; she’s hot! I mean she’s the most fascinating woman in the Bible. The four evangelists thought so, too. They mention her 12 times, more than most of the Apostles. And look what Dan Brown does in his best-selling novel the “Da Vinci Code.” He has...


    DR. CUMMINGS: Where’s the beef in your job?

    Tomorrow morning, most of you will rise, shower, put on your clothes, grab a quick bite to eat and race off to your job. Is this a happy thought or a heavy thought? Do you have real beef in your job, or is it mostly horse meat?


    DR. CUMMINGS: Prophesy and prediction

    Fortune tellers predict your future; sports writers and political pundits pick winners. Sometimes these modern day prophets hit it, and sometimes they miss completely. Old Testament prophets faced the same problems. Men like Isaiah, Jeremiah and Micah were constantly predicting the future for the...


    DR. CUMMINGS: Je Suis Charlie

    Last week, the whole world shuddered when radical Islamists slaughtered a group of Parisian journalists at their desks. We know radical Islamists recruit and train young Americans to go to the Middle East to join Al-Qaida and ISIS and then murder everyone who has a different belief.
