Resurrection Reflections  April 13, 2022

As we hunker in the bunker and wait for the Death Angel to pass over it’s good to remember that being negative is positively one of the worst things we can do.  Not only is it a waste of time, it’s depressing.  God tells us in many ways “Do not worry” more times than He tells us “Do not steal.”  And we all know what stealing is.  Can any one of us by worrying add a single hour to our life or add an inch to our height?   

As with almost anything that happens it doesn’t take long for Christians to start asking, “Do you think these are signs of the End Times?”  The Bible tells us we’ve been in the End Times at least since the writing of the book of Hebrews in the New Testament.  All I can do is repeat what Luke told us so long ago, “Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” 

Wars and pandemics shake our world.  In a moment we’re in a brave new world wondering, “Will we ever get back to the way it was?”  Things can seem so dark, so forbidding, so bleak it’s easy to lose our focus on Christ and the life He’s given us in the middle of so much sickness and death.  If we focus on the negative, we may lose sight of the positive reality: Christ triumphed over death.  He conquered it through His death on the cross where He died so we may live. 

He lived a life of love and perfection.  He died a death of hate and rejection.  He rose to share joy and perfection.  Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.  Accept Him and find life.  Reject Him and reject life. 

God is so vast yet so personal, so sublime yet so simple.  We are His creation, yet He adopts us as children.  He sustains the universe and all that’s in it, yet we ask Him to find us a parking space at MegloMart.  The wisest humans who’ve ever lived could never devise a system of religious rules or disciplines that can lead us through the snare of the flesh to the liberation of the spirit.  Or, as Paul expresses it, “For in Christ, neither our most conscientious religion nor disregard of religion amounts to anything. What matters is something far more interior: faith expressed in love.”  

In these times of stress, we need to stand strong, keep our eyes on the prize, and refuse to waver.  The government may try to become our all in all but believing that will be the surest way to fall.  We may be riveted on the daily briefings and the emergency alerts in the natural, but in the spirit we need to turn our eyes upon Jesus.  Look full in His wonderful face.  And the things of earth will grow strangely dim in the light of His glory and grace. 

Don’t be misled no one makes a fool of God. What a person plants, he will harvest. The person who plants selfishness, ignoring the needs of others — ignoring God! — harvests a crop of weeds.  All he’ll have to show for his life is weeds!  But the one who plants in response to God, letting God’s Spirit do the growth work in him, harvests a crop of real life, eternal life.” 

Here’s some good advice from the days of a war long ago which was also based on truths from the Bible: 

Johnny Mercer began his #1 hit by saying, “Gather ’round me, everybody. 
Gather ’round me while I’m preachin.’  Feel a sermon comin’ on me. The topic will be sin and that’s what I’m ag’in’.  If you wanna hear my story 
then settle back and just sit tight while I start reviewin’ the attitude of doin’ right” 

Then he crooned: 

You’ve got to accentuate the positive 
eliminate the negative 
Latch on to the affirmative 
But don’t mess with mister in-between 
 
You’ve got to spread joy up to the maximum 
Bring gloom down to the minimum 
have faith, a pandemonium 
Libel to walk up on the scene 
 
To illustrate my last remark 
Jonah in the Whale, Noah in the ark 
What did they do 
just when everything looked so dark 
 
They said we better 
accentuate the positive 
eliminate the negative 
latch on to the affirmative 
But don’t mess with mister in-between. 

As I reflect upon the Resurrection, I can see this is still good advice today.

New Old Sayings

This book is filled with musings and random thoughts of Dr. Robert Owens offered over the space of more than sixty years and compiled in one place for your edification and reference. Most of these quotes and quips come from articles written for and published on the web site drrdrrobertowens.com and/or from his many books. As a lover of old sayings, Dr. Owens has taken the opportunity given by a lifetime of writing to invent a few himself and after an equal amount of time studying the wisdom and proverbs of the world, he has distilled some of that heady elixir here.

This and all of Dr. Owens’ books are available at

A New You for a New Year January 5, 2022

Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired?  Have you reached the end of your rope only to find out that it’s much shorter than you imagined?  Was last year as good as you hoped it would be?  Was it as bad as you feared it would be?  Does the uncertainty of the future leave you anxious?  Has your own mortality entered like a crack in the ice in your youthful belief in personal indestructability?

But wait there’s more…

Does the randomness of good happening to bad people and bad happening to good people leave you wondering if there’s any rhyme or reason to reality?  Is looking for answers to these and many other questions like looking for needles in haystacks?  Is the quest to find meaning in life like trying to nail fog to the wall?

If you’ve rejected Christ because of Christians don’t mistake the messengers for the message.  Christ told his followers to lake His light to the world, and most have spent the last 2000 + years trying to build a lamp and pretending it was the light.

The message is as simple as receiving it: Confess Jesus as Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead and you will be saved.

That’s it. 

It’s not about joining the right club or following the right rules.  We don’t need a seminary degree or someone with one to walk us through learning the secret handshake or the Abra Kadabra password.  And there is no magic decoder ring.  We don’t have to read the Bible from cover to cover.  We don’t have to wear the right clothes, beard, or haircut.  We don’t have to vote for the right candidates.  We don’t have to take an oath to believe the same things that everyone else who confesses Christ as Lord does.

It isn’t about being good enough.  That’s one of the great miracles of God’s economy.  While we were yet sinners Jesus came and died so that we could live.

It isn’t about becoming a religious robot who says the right things at the right time to the right people in the right place.  God is the One who created us with free choice, so we’re free to choose.  It isn’t about conformity.  God is the One who created us to be an individual and He doesn’t make junk.  We are who He created us to be.  He has placed us in a certain time and place so that we can become all He designed us to be and do all that He has called us to do.  And that means what He created, placed, and called you to be, will be different than what He created, placed, and called me to be.  You see it isn’t about cookie-cutter, repeat a formula, and follow the rule book club membership. 

It’s about each of us individually confessing Jesus as Lord and each of us individually believing God raised Jesus from the dead and then learning to commune with God, to hear Him speak to us as individuals and then doing what He tells us to do.

If the questions at the beginning of this article float through our minds like storm clouds in a cloudless sky obscuring what should be clear.  Let’s give up the battle to do it on our own.  Let’s surrender and find victory in allowing God to count the victory of Jesus over sin and death to our account.

It’s so easy we can do it right here right now.  We don’t need to be in a meeting, at an altar, or in a special building.  We don’t need anyone to hold our hand or even know what we’ve done.  We will know.  God will know.  And once we’re in his hand no one can snatch us out.

I confess Jesus as Lord and I believe in my heart that God raised Him from the Dead.  That’s it.  All done.  The battle is over.  The war between us and God is over, and we are one with Him.  Welcome to a new you for a new year.

What is Christmas Without Christ? December 24, 2021

Posted by Dr. Robert Owens in Uncategorized.

What have Santa Clause, Frosty the Snowman, It’s a Wonderful Life, roasting chestnuts, hippos, hula hoops, and barking dogs got to do with Christmas?  

They may bring warmth to our hearts.  They may bring a smile to our lips.  Or they may make us groan.  Whatever they do to each of us what they all have in common is that they’re glued to Christmas like barnacles to the hull of the good ship lollipop.  They’re the accumulated cultural baggage that increasingly obscures the real meaning of a revolutionary blessed event under the camouflage of a socially acceptable winter break.

The ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBSNPR Cartel tells us constantly that we now live in a post-Christian America.  They exalt in proclaiming the end of Christ’s dominant influence on Western Civilization.  As a result, we’ve descended from a city on a hill to a modern Sodom and Gomorrah.  Our elites call evil good and good evil.  

Ever since the nine black-robed masters of America decreed back in 1962 that God was expelled from school we’ve witnessed the steady degradation of our society.  The coarseness and vulgarity we’re deluged with on a daily basis was unknown in earlier days.  What we call prime time entertainment was once known as pornography.  What were abominations and generally accepted as perversions have become the norm while believing them to be against God’s Word is now considered some type of mental disorder.  The cabal of self-appointed paragons of pomposity that masquerade as educators, politicians, and journalists cap their war against God when they glory in the right of self-interest to sacrifice the lives of the innocent and demand that the government not only endorse it but subsidize it.

As a natural outgrowth of the city of man’s war against God that defines America’s progressive culture comes the war against Christmas.

Back in the dream time we used to go to Christmas programs at our children’s schools and listen to the little darlings sing The First Noel, Oh Little Town of Bethlehem, and O Come O Come Emmanuel.  Now we listen to them sing songs in foreign languages or do beautiful arrangements of sounds that don’t even have a meaning intermixed with a few songs about winter, snow, or maybe animals.  It may all be Woke but it sure doesn’t have anything to do with the reason for the season.

Just in case all the tinsel and the twinkling lights have blinded us to what that reason is let me elaborate.

Christmas is all about Jesus the Christ born as a human so that he could bear the sins of the world, die a substitutionary death in our place, rise triumphantly from the grave and ascend into heaven so that we who believe can live in and through Him.  That’s what it’s all about.  Christmas must be linked to Easter to have any meaning.  I’ve met people who never realized that the Jesus in the manger on Christmas was the same Jesus who hung on the cross on Good Friday.  I did not meet them in the jungles of some remote island but in America with a church on every corner.  This is a clear case of Santa with a coke in his hand winning the advertising debate over the Lamb who takes away the sins of the world.  It may all be Woke but it sure doesn’t have anything to do with the reason for the season.

What is Christmas without Christ?  It’s a worldly hedonistic overly commercialized gift giving/receiving orgasm perpetrated by humanity’s enemy to keep us from knowing that Christ came to set us free, to reconcile us to God, and to make a way for us to live as a new creation in a new creation.  

Not to be Grinch, let me wish everyone a Merry Christmas.  Let’s enjoy our family and friends.  Let’s celebrate our traditions as we remember Jesus is the reason for the season.  Let’s wake up and smell the frankincense and myrrh for without Christ in Christmas all we have is “mas.”
