The Daily Thought has been published on the Internet for over a decade. It was begun with the intent of trying to compress into about the area of a single book page worthwhile Biblical teaching that will meet the needs of the total Christian. The reader should find material for study, contemplation, devotion, and meditation over the course of each month.
Because the writer intends to meet those needs the subscriber will find the topics wide ranging, but always based in the Word of God. Ideas for future thoughts are often proposed by subscribers as they ask qurstions, offer comment and make suggestions mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Your Bible teacher, Michael L. Ford, Th.D. is a retired seminary professor, with nearly forty years experience in the ministry. His two great loves related to Biblical studies are Biblical Archaeology and Eschatology, so every once in a while those interests do creep in. His experience as a Christian Counselor also impact the material in the Daily Thought. He is listed in the Who's Who of Prophecy Teachers and you may consult that website to see his and other prominent prophecy teacher's ratings http://www.soundchristian.com/prophecy/who/
The topics covered are intended to be responsive, as much as possible to the suggestions of members of the list. In a sense the Daily Thought is interactice. At times questions raised among the members are responded to individually. Pastors are welcome to use material they read here in their own preaching endeavors. The desire is to be Gospel sharers with all who love the Lord Jesus Christ and the hope of His appearing. As Dr. Kent Hovind says "When you are in a war you do not ration bullets."
The Biblical text used in English is the Authorized Version also known as the King James Bible. References to origininal tongues will use the Hebrew Masoretic and the Greek Textus Receptus unless some other is referred to specifically for exposure purposes.
The material contained in these Daily Thoughts will follow literal and conservative rules of interpretation, always seeking to express the Word of God simply, clearly, and honestly. The only warning that can be affixed to the Daily Thought is that if you are not a Christian, or unwilling to expose yourself to the precepts of the Most High, you should not go here.
