We all know that the early pages of the Bible–namely, the creation account–has long been scrutinized and made out to be merely allegorical (or just false). Even some professing Christian scholars, theologians, and the like go as far as to say that Adam and Eve weren’t real people. They were symbols, as it’s said. However,Continue reading “No Historical Adam? No Gospel.”
In the wake of the historic Alabama abortion bill that nearly bans the grotesque practice altogether, the arguments and protests are increasing ever more. The abortion debate is not going to slow down anytime soon. One thing I’ve seen become more prevalent in these days is the erroneous argument that the fetus is not aContinue reading “That “Clump of Cells” Has a Heartbeat—And You Know It”
In this video, I seek to answer the age-old question: what music should we use in our worship services? Should we use contemporary or hymns? I think you’ll find the answer is more simple than we think.
Recently I was sitting in a car repair shop when I noticed the tiniest bug on the lobby table. Since I was annoyingly bored, I simply stared at it. The more I stared, the more I became aware of the astounding fact that God is in control—even of that tiny bug. Scripture forthrightly tells usContinue reading “Stop Putting Caveats on the Sovereignty of God”
In our day and age, there has been no other historical document put under more scrutiny than the Bible; there has been no other known document in existence that has been more studied, more criticized than sacred Scripture. And yet — in my opinion, along with many others — it is still standing. And itContinue reading “The Bible is the Most Reliable Document. Here’s Why.”
Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. – Romans 5:9 It’s a frightening thing, the wrath of God. It’s also a real thing. Many evangelical pastors are too afraid to address it because it might drive people away. ProfessingContinue reading “Why We Need to Talk about God’s Wrath”
For this #WorshipWednesday, I am linking a short clip of a panel discussion from an old Ligonier Conference. The panel consists of (from left to right) Mark Dever, John MacArthur, Ligon Duncan, and RC Sproul. In this video, they are discussing what’s wrong with modern Christian music.
One of the most effective ways to witness to people is asking them a few questions related to the Ten Commandments. Of course, it’s the best way to do it because Jesus did it in the story of The Rich Young Ruler (Matthew 19:16-30). What were these questions Jesus asked? Have you ever committed murder?Continue reading “Why Believing You’re a Bad Person is a Good Thing”
In the evangelical world, there are countless Bible translations to choose from. Some people–mostly skeptics–criticize that. To me, it’s mostly good. The amount of Bible translations we have helps in regards to understanding what we’re reading. However, with the amount of Bible translations comes the fine line between choosing a Bible translation that we canContinue reading “Does it Matter Which Bible Translation You Use?”
For this #WorshipWednesday, I am going with a more lighthearted video, from none other than Christian comedian Tim Hawkins. Although Hawkins is making a joke about how people raise hands in church, he is also making a point. It doesn’t matter whether you raise your hands, sway, sit there like a Frozen Chosen, or whatContinue reading “#WorshipWednesday – Tim Hawkins, Worship Hands”
