The Better Covenant

“But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises.  For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second” (Heb 8:6-7). I […]

Three Questions on Biblical Inerrancy

This post was taken entirely from a comment I made on The Naked Convos, in defense of my post The Classic Conversion Mistake, which was republished and renamed The Gospel Truth.  I think these are good questions that all true Biblical inerranists need to contemplate and find answers […]

In My Name

“If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it” (John 14:14). This saying of Jesus is much misunderstood, but it is so simple to comprehend.  Many respond to this message by treating Jesus as a genie who grants wishes, as long as they add […]

Predestination and Freewill

Can you believe in one and believe in the other too?  I believe so.  They actually both work together for the glory of God.  One is God’s calling and empowerment, and the other is our choice and will-power.  The Bible says: “And we know that all things work […]

A Rude Awakening

“Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that […]

I Don’t Know

Christians are often regarded as “Know-It-All”s by the faithless, because of the confidence we place in the knowledge of God and all things spiritual.  Maybe it could also have something to do with how we seem to have an answer for everything…or how hard it is to get […]

Discipline and Christianity

The first people to be called Christians were first called “disciples” of Jesus Christ (Acts 11:26).  A disciple can be best defined as a student/follower of a Teacher/Leader, who studies a discipline (profession) to gain mastery over it and become equipped to pass on the training to others. […]

Can you love madly and still be Christian?

This seems like a no brainer!  I’m sure many people are thinking, “Why not?”, “Of course!” “What a ridiculous question…”  Perhaps, maybe… I ask this question as a former hopeless romantic, who is now just a romantic at heart.  I know how it feels to be madly in love… […]

A World Without God?

Let’s think about that for a minute.  Really, really think about it.  Can you imagine it?  The absence of the awareness of any divine Being?  Any sovereign Lord?  Any all encompassing Spirit? So many people profess that they can.  And that they have.  And in fact, they live […]

What is Christ Without the Cross?

Jesus Christ (or Yeshua) of Nazareth is the most popular, famous, impactful, remarkable Man that ever lived.  The fact that He was born at all is still the most significant event in this world’s history, more than 2000 years later!  We even set our dates by His birth. […]

Understanding Emotional Affairs

I recently concluded a two-volume fictional series called An Emotional Affair, to illustrate how easy it is for such a stronghold to take captive a marriage. It was also to illustrate that God is able and willing to deliver us all, and that we must be as gracious […]
