Skye Jethani is a relatively well-known voice in the evangelical world. As an author and online content creator, he has contributed in many ways to evangelical public conversations over the years. I have found many of his insights specifically focused on the megachurch movement to be very helpful, though I have always known that he and I do not see eye to eye on a … Continue reading Do White People Care About the Bible?
Keep or Toss? Patheos wrote an article of a unique nature. Jonathan Aigner decided to go after hymns, ten of them specifically, and that piece can be read here. In our current worship wars we not only debate the style and volume of music, but the actual songs themselves. We pit hymns against contemporary Christian music. The stereotype is that hymns are rich in theology, … Continue reading Should You Stop Singing These Hymns?
Politics and the English Language “I never discuss anything else except politics and religion. There is nothing else to discuss.” – G.K.

When one reads through or thinks about the book … Continue reading Galatians and the Papacy
Taking the Good Out of Good Friday Yesterday was Good Friday 2020. I preached a sermon which is typically in line with what I normally focus on during Good Friday services; Penal Substitutionary Atonement. That phrase might be foreign to you, but if you’re a Christian, the concept is not. Otherwise known as Substitutionary Atonement (SA), it is the doctrine of Christ becoming our sin-bearer. … Continue reading Flinching at the Cross
In this episode I clarify an important point of the Calvinism debate as it pertains to the issue of whether or not God predestined all things, or only some things. The blog I referenced can be found here: https://resistingthewinds.wordpress.com/2019/03/04/tulips-why-i-believe-in-a-sovereign-decree/ A link to the song can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=audrey+assad+it+is+well [T]his Jesus, delivered up according to the definite plan and foreknowledge of God, you crucified and killed by … Continue reading Did God Predestine Everything?
