Three Things To Be Thankful for this Thanksgiving

A worship song I enjoy singing with my local church is the song 10,000 Reasons.  The thesis of the song is that God has done so much for us that there is an inexhaustible list of reasons to bless and worship His. I subscribe wholesale to that notion, and so it is an understatement in mind to say Christians have a lot to be thankful … Continue reading Three Things To Be Thankful for this Thanksgiving

Pray for the Persecuted Church

November 5th is the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. This comes in the wake of a developing story of a local church in Texas that just lost 25 members to an evil gunman. One of those murdered was the pastor’s 14 year old daughter. Although the gunman’s motives are still unclear, it is difficult to believe the shooter’s motive was not faith-based. … Continue reading Pray for the Persecuted Church

Protestant Resolutions: The 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation

What an honor it is to experience the 500th year anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. On such an important day as this, I felt the only blog that could possibly do justice to the many issues that divided us in the 16th century, and still divide us today, is to write my personal confession. Below is a list of theological resolutions which clearly explain the … Continue reading Protestant Resolutions: The 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation

Humbled by Harvey

Al Mohler released some haunting statistics about the flooding situation in Houston due to Hurricane Harvey. Quoting from the Washington Post, Mohler put the rainfall into perspective, as the sheer statistics are hard to comprehend. Nine-trillion gallons have fallen over that city, and 20 trillion is expected. Just the nine trillion dumped thus far would fill The Great Salt Lake in Salt Lake city…twice. Or maybe … Continue reading Humbled by Harvey

The God Delusion: Why I Am a Presuppositionalist

The only way to condemn one natural instinct, and condone another natural instinct, is to have a standard which transcends natural instincts. Dawkins’ worldview cannot provide that. Thus, as he shuffles through the mixed-bag of human tendencies, he arbitrarily puts some of them in the bucket marked “moral” and arbitrarily puts others in the bucket marked “evil”, when his worldview demands he needs to simply take the whole bag. Continue reading The God Delusion: Why I Am a Presuppositionalist

Christians and Marijuana

Think Biblically I live in Colorado. Unfortunately here, marijuana is in the news a lot. And given that today is the annual marijuana holiday (4/20), I decided it was due time to write a brief blog addressing how Christians ought to and are permitted to think about weed. We are never ever permitted to think about any issue with an open mind; rather, we think with open … Continue reading Christians and Marijuana

Comfort and the Broken Christian

Introduction: Suffering is truly universal. Every person is familiar with hardships and trials. “Read Scripture and pray” is typically every Christian’s response to, what I call, drive-by counseling. When a brother or sister runs to a Christian in a time of brokenness, it is not rare to experience feeling overwhelmed, and not knowing exactly how to alleviate the struggles and pains. Perhaps the most common on-the-fly counsel … Continue reading Comfort and the Broken Christian
