Relational Theology

Have you ever heard someone say that most of their friends are really just acquaintances? Unfortunately, we tend to be loose with the definition of friend these days. The Bible says that Abraham was a friend of God. The father of our faith is the first person in Scripture called a prophet; more importantly, he... Continue Reading →

Resurrection Passages

 A few things caught my attention while reading the resurrection passages in ‘A Harmony of the Gospels in 30 Days’ on YouVersion. Reading all the Gospel accounts together by story sheds new light on the life and ministry of Jesus. For instance, look at how revelation comes; John 20:9 TLV “For they did not yet...

What’s Missing?

Those that have turned the world upside down have come here also. Those were the words spoken to a rag-tag bunch of nobodies who changed the known world with the gospel long before tv and social media. I am saddened and sickened by the state of America, yet the blame lies solely at the feet... Continue Reading →

Jesus at the Center

Jesus said, "You search the Scriptures because you think they give you eternal life. But the Scriptures point to me!1" So whether it's the Jewish roots, believing for signs and wonders, or even wanting to make sure all your doctrinal t's are crossed and i's dotted - the enemy wants you to get away from...

Walking in Grace

 I am continually amazed at the grace of God over me, a sinner. A few passages in Romans stuck out in my reading today and continued some conviction I have been feeling the last few days but more on that in a moment.  How God Accepts Us “But now God’s righteousness apart from the Torah has been...

Are You Being Distracted?

The Hillsong Documentary, Julie Roy's latest attack on John MacArthur, The latest SBC kerfluffle, and crazy charismatic behavior all have one thing in common - distraction. The enemy uses all of these things to get believers' attention out of God's book and onto Facebook and into Twitter battles. There is a difference between Paul calling... Continue Reading →

Stories of Heaven And Hell

Today, I saw a headline on Instagram; Woman dies from suffering a heart attack and claims she went to Heaven and met Jesus. I thought of the man in the Bible who begged for someone to be sent to his brothers to warn them of the afterlife. Accounts of visits to Heaven and hell abound... Continue Reading →

Let Go… But Hold On

I am a reader; as Christians, we should all be readers. I know people are busy, and life is hectic, but we need to make time for Bible reading and other good books. This post is not about that per se. It's February, and I've switched Bible translations (I know, not a surprise to some).... Continue Reading →

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...
