Eventually, Christian leaders will have to do what they’ve done for 2,000 years. We will have to lead the flocks to which Christ Himself has made us overseers. We cannot permanently abdicate responsibility to temporal powers.

It really doesn’t matter if you’re a Republican or a Democrat. You could be a diehard Dallas Cowboys fan and find that you’ll agree with a Philadelphia Eagles fan, at least on this one point. Even the redneck and the socialite will find common ground here. I think we can all agree. During this COVID-19 […]

Today’s Blog is a guest post from my wife, Heather. Enjoy! “Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as […]

Difficult Times = Shifting Doctrine

February 16, 2013

Throughout history it is puzzling to see the church change its doctrine from one generation to the next.  How does this happen?  If the Bible clearly states a truth and the church believes the truth, how then does the church’s doctrine change?

What is The Flesh?

February 12, 2013

Growing up in church, I often heard preachers talk about the flesh and the spirit.  As I understood it, the flesh was bad and the spirit was good.  I was not to live in the flesh, walk after the flesh, and enjoy fleshly things.  Yet, this confused me, because I looked at myself and understood […]

Something’s Missing

January 23, 2013

I have often sat with those in our church who have recently come to faith in Jesus Christ, as they retell the story of their conversion there is almost without fail a reference to “something missing.” “I had a job, a family and a home. My life seemed good but something was missing. Then I […]

Who Cares Who Wrote What When?

January 17, 2013

As a student of Scripture begins to go deeper into the realm of Bible study he will begin to ask or be asked the most frustrating questions.  Such as, who wrote this specific book, to whom was it written and when specifically was it written?  If we are not careful we will look at these […]
