Some time back, I informed you that both iPhone and Android apps were available for my blogsite about racial issues (blacktaxandwhitebenefits.com). Now both types of apps are available for my regular teaching website (gordonferguson.org). Please install apps on your phone for both sites and encourage others to do the same. I’ve paid for their development so that you could have them free. The reading format on my phone is excellent – I definitely prefer it to reading the same material on my computer. Thanks so much!

Back in 1999, I wrote a little book entitled, “The Power of Gratitude.” It has been out of print for a number of years now. I have intended to edit it and add enough new material to reprint it as a second edition. However, in working on it, I decided to just write a second volume with all new material. I will edit and post some of the chapters of the original volume on my Bible teaching website. I begin on this day just prior to our American celebration called Thanksgiving Day by posting the Introduction of that little book written at the close of the last century. Enjoy! ...

Gratitude: How Soon We Forget Few sins are as disgusting as ingratitude. A study of God’s dealings with mankind would surely demonstrate how strongly God thinks that this is indeed the case. We humans agree with his assessment—as long as we are observing a lack of thankfulness in the lives of ot...
As most of you know, I have two websites for teaching Bible and Bible-related topics. One is my older basic teaching site, gordonferguson.org which has scores of articles posted on it, most of them by me but some by guest writers.
My other site is my racially-related teaching site, blacktaxandwhitebenefits.com. This site has both Android and Apple Apps to enable you to read material on your phone.
The basic teaching site has a new Android App available to use on your phone and the Apple App is being developed as we speak. The new gordonferguson teaching Android App will be developed further, making it easier to find articles on different topics, but it is available and functional now.
I find that reading on my phone is much easier than reading on my computer. Please download these free Apps for your phone and encourage your friends to do the same. The readership continues to grow for my websites, but your help to keep it growing is much appreciated! Thank you in advance!😁 ... See MoreSee Less
I just posted an article on my blog addressing how disciples of color must avoid feeling justified in allowing resentments toward mistreatment to reside in their hearts. As a white man, most of my blog articles are aimed at helping my white brothers and sisters develop more understanding and compassion for their brothers and sisters of color. However, while I understand something of the challenges faced especially by African Americans, I also understand what the Bible says about how we all must handle challenges. Hence, the aim of my present article.
I asked Michael Burns to read my article before posting it, as I usually do. He has an amazing grasp of cultural issues like these. He mentioned that he had been doing some teaching along the same lines. One point he has been making is how persecuted the Jews were in the Gentile world and all of the violence and nastiness that went on between those two groups. Just imagine the struggle that it was for the Jews to come to the realization that they were now being called to accommodate the Gentile culture, a culture that they had been dominated by and hated by. As always, Michael’s insights into cultural issues past and present are spot on target. He thought my article was on target as well, as I hope you will! ... See MoreSee Less
Vengeance is Not Yours, Says the Lord! (Blog 50) Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, “VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY,” says the Lord (Romans 12:19, NASB). We live in an angry age, to put it as mildly as possible. At least 40 years ago, I...
