What it Means to be Pro-Life

Today is the 49th annual March for Life. This event for life has become increasingly political over the last several years. But unfortunately, with the hijacking of the term pro-life in recent years, much of the movement has given way to the industry. I am unashamedly pro-life, but I refuse to be holistically pro-life. Why?... 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 →

Sin, Salvation, and Sanctification

I want to know Jesus better, and I want to obey Him more consistently; this is the desire of the Christian. We all want to grow closer to the Lord, and we are all at varying levels in our relationship with Him. Each of us has different things that trip us up. What is tempting... Continue Reading →

Thoughts on Heaven

They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. 5 Night shall be no more, and people will have no need for lamplight or sunlight—for Adonai Elohim will shine on them. And they shall reign forever and ever! - Revelation 22:4-5 Today I finished my study in the book of Revelation, and I was left stunned at the...

Reverencing God

This morning I read the story of Gideon asking God for a sign in Judges 6:36-40 "Then Gideon said to God, “If You are going to deliver Israel by my hand, as You have spoken, 37 see, I am putting a fleece of wool on the threshing-floor. If there is dew only on the fleece, and all... 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 "Now these were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, because they received the message with goodwill, searching the Scriptures each day to see whether these things were true." 2 Peter 2:1-3 "But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also...

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

Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you exhorting that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all handed down to the saints. Jude 1:3 LSB Every generation feels the need to reinvent Christianity, to make it relevant,... 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 a fall." Proverbs 16:18 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 →

Cultural Trends and the Church

Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness! Let them rule over the fish of the sea, over the flying creatures of the sky, over the livestock, over the whole earth, and over every crawling creature that crawls on the land.” 27 God created humankind in His image, in the image of...
