Replacement or Reconciliation

In the garden, Jesus prayed that we all might be one, and in Ephesians, Paul wrote that Jesus tore down the middle wall of separation between Jew and Gentile. There are many different notions of unity; some believe we need to put away doctrine and unify with everyone who claims Jesus. Others say unity is... Continue Reading →

Why Jewish Roots?

I was saved at an early age and grew up in church. My journey has allowed me to see various parts of the body of Christ, but in March of 2014, the Lord began preparing me for something that would happen during my birthday weekend that year. April 15-20, 2014, I attended a Passover Conference,... Continue Reading →

Biblical Unity

Much has been said, and rightly so concerning unity in the Church. But what does unity look like? Is it really about setting doctrine aside and accepting professions of faith at face value when there is no fruit behind the confession? Years ago, Catholics and Evangelicals Together came on the scene declaring we’re all together.... Continue Reading →

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 →

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,...

The Narrow Path (Matthew 7:13-23)

The other day I saw a quote that said the part of the Bible we would like to ignore is the part we need the most. In Matthew chapter seven, we read the words judge not, that you be not judged. And that’s where most people stop. They don’t want to acknowledge that the rest... Continue Reading →

A Novel Without A Main Character, A Book Without THE Message

Have you ever read or heard something that was so thought-provoking it was on your mind for days, weeks, or even months? That was me several years ago when I read several books by various authors. A repeated theme was rethinking Christianity; in these books, they invited the reader into conversations, which challenged Christians to... 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 →

Friendship with the World (James 4:1-6)

Have you ever heard a preacher say, I don't drink, and I don't chew, and I don't hang out with those who do? That's a very bad attempt at humor, number one. Number two it makes light of, and even pokes fun at the call to holiness. As Christians, we are called to a different... Continue Reading →

Two kinds of Wisdom (James 3:13-18)

What do you do when you don't know what to do? Do you call a friend, do you pray, do you wing it? The answer may depend on the situation. Whatever you do, you want to make the right decision; you want to make a wise decision. How do you make a wise decision? That... Continue Reading →

Living for Eternity

The other day I was watching an episode of The Big Bang Theory. The guys had just bought a time machine from a movie. Penny saw it and told them they were pathetic and devoted too much time to toys and playing games. The only one bothered by it was Leonard, who proceeded to box... Continue Reading →

Denial and Redemption

After the final Passover meal, things begin to move quickly; Jesus goes with His disciples to the garden where He prays for Himself, His disciples, and all of those who will believe through their word (John 17), and the story progresses quickly through betrayal, arrest, trial, and denial (John 18). I want to step out... Continue Reading →
