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

Bracing for the Inevitable Rape Culture

John Calvin rightly identified one of the primary purposes of the Law of God being the restraint of evil. The Law of God is like a damn which holds back the waters of sin. America’s culture has for many years now been taking hammers to the concrete, and water has been spilling out. The water being held back is a ferocious force, capable of more … Continue reading Bracing for the Inevitable Rape Culture

On Singleness in Heaven

I had the privilege this last weekend to officiate the wedding of one of my most cherished friends, and roommate of nearly four years. The ceremony was as lovely as it was sacred, and for all of us fortunate enough to be involved in such an event, marriage has been thoroughly saturated on our minds. As I have been musing marriage of late, a couple … Continue reading On Singleness in Heaven

Jesus DOES Offer You Your Best Life Now

The “prosperity gospel” has been a contagion slowly infecting much of the nation, and many places around the world, for over a decade now. I add the quotation marks for many reasons. First of all, it offers only the leaders of the movements prosperity. The masses get ripped off and grow poorer. So it is false advertisement as it offers no one prosperity of any … Continue reading Jesus DOES Offer You Your Best Life Now

Adding Atrocity to Atrocities

There are two kinds of nations who love the shedding of innocent blood. There are nations whose people do this regularly and habitually, in spite of the prohibitions against such behavior, and then there is a whole different kind of nation. One which sheds innocent blood with legislative approval. A nation that regularly murders the innocent is wicked and deserves judgment. However, there is still … Continue reading Adding Atrocity to Atrocities

Balaam on the Nashville Statement

Balaam in the Old Testament is not admirable for many reasons. As a pagan who practiced divination, he is most notably known for enticing the Israelites to sin (Numbers 31:16). John’s commentary on him, in Revelation 2:14, states that Balaam “taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, so that they might eat food sacrificed to idols and practice sexual immorality.” … Continue reading Balaam on the Nashville Statement

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

Take Down the Statues

I am not a history buff. Read that as a confession, not an assertion. I am not proud of this. If I have learned one thing as of late, it is the importance of knowing history. Whether it is personal history, church history, national history, or world history, knowledge of the past is more important than I used to recognize. This severe lack proficiency in … Continue reading Take Down the Statues
