What is the Trinity?

This post was adapted from my lesson during Equipping Hour at Sovereign Grace Bible Church on April 7, 2019. This is the first post in a series of two. There are several doctrines of the Christian faith that leave us asking, “Now what does that mean again?” We find that since these doctrines are soContinue reading “What is the Trinity?”

#WorshipWednesday – The Universalism of Worship

Back in 2005, David Foster Wallace—famous author and known secularist—said these words at the commencement ceremony at Kenyon College: “Everybody worships. The only choice we get is what to worship. And the compelling reason for maybe choosing some sort of god or spiritual-type thing to worship…is that pretty much anything else you worship will eatContinue reading “#WorshipWednesday – The Universalism of Worship”

The Perils of Planned Revivals

You’ve probably seen it before: you’re driving down the road, and to your right you see that the local Baptist church is scheduling a revival on so-and-so dates. To most people, this doesn’t make them think twice. It’s ordinary. It’s normal. But here’s the big issue: Holy Spirit-led revival isn’t ordinary.

A Biblical Response to False Gospels

“I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heavenContinue reading “A Biblical Response to False Gospels”

The Balance Between Knowledge and Emotion

If you know me well–and we’ve had conversations about theology–you will know where I stand theologically. I am a Reformed Baptist. One of the stigmas that comes with being a Calvinist is that a lot of people think that we Calvinists don’t show enough emotion; that is, we’re all about head knowledge, with no heartfeltContinue reading “The Balance Between Knowledge and Emotion”
