Controversial, Courageous, and Correct

John MacArthur. That name makes people angry; it causes certain Christians to lose their temper, but why? Why is John MacArthur the most controversial figure in the Church today, and why would I follow such a man? Let's start with that last part, I follow him because he has faithfully served one church for over... Continue Reading →

Blameless in the Battle

When Abram was ninety-nine years old the Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be blameless,Genesis 17:1 ESV From the moment I woke up this morning, I have been thinking about the phrase, “walk before Me and be blameless.” I wonder what Abraham thought when God...

Thoughts on Heaven

"They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. 5 And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever."  - Revelation 22:4-5 ESV Today I finished my study in the... Continue Reading →

Observations on Healing and Miracles in the Book of Acts

In the last two weeks, I have read the book of Acts paying careful attention to instances of healing and miracles, specifically looking at who performed them. I will present all the verses on healing and miracles in this post and then offer my observations and thoughts. THE TEXTS “And awe came upon every soul,... Continue Reading →

Reverencing God

This morning I read the story of Gideon asking God for a sign in Judges 6:36-40 ESV “Then Gideon said to God, “If you will save Israel by my hand, as you have said, behold, I am laying a fleece of wool on the threshing floor. If there is dew on the fleece alone, and... Continue Reading →

Porn Star Pastor’s Wife?

I read an article the other day and sat stunned seeing the most anti-biblical theology celebrated by pastors that I’ve seen in a while. Sure, the Church in question is a “progressive Christian” church, but it didn’t make the article’s content any less jarring. The pastor’s wife is a practicing porn star. In the article,...

Defending The Faith

We cannot defend the truth unless we know it first. Acts 17:11 ESV “Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.” 2 Peter 2:1-3 ESV “But false prophets also arose among the people, just as...

Just Passing Through

Last night, as I was lying in bed not thinking of anything in particular that I was aware of, these lines came to me; “My life is not my own and this world is not my home. Forsake things unknown there, we live for His glory alone here.” The thought made an impression on me, so... Continue Reading →

Tethered to Truth

I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.Jude 1:3 ESV Every generation feels the need to reinvent Christianity, to make it relevant, but the truth is, the Christian faith has endured for over 2000 years. The faith once delivered has... Continue Reading →

Is The Gospel Enough?

Is the gospel enough? That may seem like a ridiculous question but think about it. Do you believe the gospel is enough? Does the church you attend believe the gospel is enough? Is the gospel even presented in your church? One day I was driving home from a church I had been attending for about... Continue Reading →

Love Not The World

Do not love the world or the things in the world. Variations of this command appear throughout the New Testament. It is a straightforward command. Yet, as in days past, it is time to issue a call to holiness and Christlikeness in our day. Over the past several years, you have most likely heard the... Continue Reading →

We Have (Not) Arrived

The motto of the Protestant Reformation was “Semper Reformanda,” reformed and always reforming. They didn’t say we had arrived. There is always a need to continue learning and growing. The change of yesterday leads to the change of today. The time of the Reformation taught men the necessity of the Scripture. Martin Luther saw a... Continue Reading →

Should We Celebrate Pride?

 "Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before stumbling." Proverbs 16:18 LSB Pride and haughtiness are characteristics of the age we live in; being proud is seen as a good thing, yet the Bible repeatedly condemns pride (Prov. 11:2, Js. 4:6, 1 Jn. 2:16, Prov. 16:5). We take pride in our accomplishments but often... Continue Reading →

Thoughts on Deconstruction

There goes another one, I think to myself, each time I read of another celebrity Christian deconstructing their faith. Why do people deconstruct? There isn’t one reason, and each person has their own story. Deconstruction is all about the story. I’m not going to respond as other people have reacted; many will say I need... Continue Reading →

The Key to a Right Relationship

Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. How many times have we heard that verse? Did you know that's not the whole verse? 2 Corinthians 6:14 NKJV "Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?" The phrase; do not be unequally... Continue Reading →
