A Heavenly Inheritance

“…to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you.” (1 Peter 1:4 ESV) When the Bible speaks of salvation, it also speaks of an inheritance. Our salvation — not just that our sins are forgiven but, ultimately, that we get God Himself — is also our inheritance, which is obtainedContinue reading “A Heavenly Inheritance”

The Benefit of Storing God’s Word in Your Heart

“I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.” (Psalms‬ ‭119:11‬ ‭ESV‬‬) In Don Whitney’s famous book Spiritual Disciplines, he gives Scripture memorization as one of the key disciplines for the Christian life. But why is that? Why is memorizing the Bible such a necessary and beneficial partContinue reading “The Benefit of Storing God’s Word in Your Heart”

Why We Need to be Intentional with How We Use Social Media

Social media, just like other types of technology, has blessings and curses. If you don’t understand that, you’re likely to fall into the trap of using it for sinful purposes. That is why we need to be intentional with how we use social media. We are Christians. As such, we should use our God-given wisdomContinue reading “Why We Need to be Intentional with How We Use Social Media”

No Historical Adam? No Gospel.

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.”

Why Believing You’re a Bad Person is a Good Thing

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”

Does it Matter Which Bible Translation You Use?

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?”

The Gospel is Offensive, but You Shouldn’t Be

The world in which we live today is full of people who are easily offended. From “safe spaces” at universities to unconstitutional attempts to tear down free speech because of what is being said, the world wants us to know something: they’re offended. I get why they’re offended because I know the message we preach—theContinue reading “The Gospel is Offensive, but You Shouldn’t Be”

#WorshipWednesday – A Theology of Worship

For this week’s #WorshipWednesday, I am linking an article by Kevin DeYoung at The Gospel Coalition. In it, DeYoung writes about the theology of worship: what it’s ultimately for, what it’s focused on, what it’s based on, among other things. Churches would do well to follow this.

How Should We Handle the “Social Justice” Debate?

If you’ve peaked your head into the news realm in the past few years—specifically as it pertains to evangelicalism—you will undoubtedly see the discussions centered around one concept: social justice. (Even though I don’t think this is a good term to use, we will use it for the sake of the argument.) Whether we believeContinue reading “How Should We Handle the “Social Justice” Debate?”
