Responding to Supernatural Part II: Free Will

Introduction: It is imperative one reads the first blog of this series prior to continuing in order to understand my heart and purpose. In that blog responding to Heiser’s book, I covered the issue of sovereignty (God’s decree and plan.) In this blog, I will focus on the other issue Dr. Heiser regularly brought up: free will. The Bondage of the Will: In the debate … Continue reading Responding to Supernatural Part II: Free Will

Responding to Supernatural Part I: Sovereignty with a Chest

Introduction: I recently finished Dr. Michael Heiser’s book Supernatural. It has been recommended by a good friend, as well as a trusted pastor. After finishing the book, I had conflicting emotions. The book has many positive qualities. I would say the primary thesis of the book is largely established. The book is a challenge to Christians to rethink what the Bible says about the unseen … Continue reading Responding to Supernatural Part I: Sovereignty with a Chest

A Roman Catholic Contradiction

Introduction There is a tough text in Romans 2 that comes up often in the debate with Roman Catholics on whether a person is justified by faith, or by faith and works. Verse 13 reads, “For it is not the hearers of the Law who are justified, but the doers of the Law who will be justified.” Roman Catholics often use this verse to teach … Continue reading A Roman Catholic Contradiction

Evolution in the Public School

One subject I have been overdue to write on is the issue of evolution, specifically regarding public education and the indoctrination of the youth. I received my undergraduate degree in secondary English education. I was very excited to become a public educator until the opportunity to be a pastor presented itself. Although I did not enter education, it has been, and always will be, an … Continue reading Evolution in the Public School

My Conversation with Jim the Atheist

It’s been a while since I have had an extended dialogue with an Atheist. I wanted to share one I recently had in the comment section of my most recent post. I share it for a couple reasons. It remained civil. We were at times blunt, but conversations of this nature require that. Certainly, much of Jesus’ language falls into a similar category. However, given Jim’s … Continue reading My Conversation with Jim the Atheist

The Golden Rule

The Golden Rule Any person who professes any form of Atheism will find themselves regularly in conversations about morality. Objective ethics has become the Achilles’ heel of the position which asserts a universe without God is possible. What I have found strikingly interesting over the years is how many non-Christians will cling to the Golden Rule rule as being a moral standard for themselves. I … Continue reading The Golden Rule

God & Hell

Introduction The concept of hell is a difficult one to talk about. Because it is so difficult and controversial, we rarely like to discuss it, but because we don’t discuss it, we open the doors wide for false ideas and assumptions to creep in unchallenged. I recently watched a video shared on Facebook which involved Christian apologist Frank Turek giving an answer to a student … Continue reading God & Hell

Christianity is a Religion

Bo Hutches is currently serving as an Associate Pastor at Living Water Bible Fellowship in Alamosa, Colorado. Originally from Springfield, CO he made his way to Alamosa to study at Adams State University. While he was pursuing his studies, he began to feel the call to pastoral ministry. Plugging into the college ministry that Living Water offered he continued to pursue this call by stepping … Continue reading Christianity is a Religion

Sacred & Secular

Doctrine and Devotion One of my favorite podcasts to listen to is “Doctrine and Devotion” (Doc & Devo). Lead pastor of Redeemer Fellowship, Joe Thorn, and elder candidate, Jimmy Fowler, put on a great show. They are theologically rich, and hysterical to boot. As a reformed Baptist like them, I agree with them on quite a bit, and I have been sanctified on many theological … Continue reading Sacred & Secular
