Teach with Authority

I was always unimpressed by professors in college and seminary who simply gave all the ways something could be interpreted, because my immediate response is, “well which one do you find intriguing?” But instead of answering, sometimes we simply got here are the five ways of understanding this text. Here are the five school of…

In the Year 7510…

As the song goes: In the Year 7510, If God’s a coming again, he ought to make it back by then, maybe he’ll look around himself and say, maybe it’s time for the judgment day. In the year 8510 God is gonna shake his mighty head, he’ll either say “I’m please with where man has…

Revoicing and Incels

The revoiceing conference just happened this past weekend in St. Louis hosted in a Presbyterian Church. You play with sin long enough, and eventually you are hosting a conference for it. Let me say this, homosexual desire is a reality out there in the world and the church’s job is not to eradicate such a…

Meandering Origins and X-Men

The next step in the evolutionary process should be cool right? Will we follow this evolving course that will eventually lead to us transcending the evolutionary process altogether? What if we have reached a point where we do not want to change anymore? Will mother nature respect our decision to not mutate again? Well I…

A hill to Die on

This isn’t necessarily going to be so macabre as the title, maybe, but the idea that Christianity has a posture or a direction it points is important. The direction we point is death. I say death because our whole premise is based on a death which of course is followed by a resurrection. The point…

On Destroying Evil

This is really in addition to my post on suffering. As I have been seeking the Lord for wisdom, I have been listening to a broad range of thinkers. I had already been convinced of the shortness of the reach of the Christian message only as we have come to present it. Not that I…

On Children and Borders

People have the right idea about where the justice is off kilter in this problem. When Jeff sessions told us that Christians should listen to government decisions because of Romans 13, it did rustle some feathers. But many have already rebuked the man. It is the overall continuous rebuking on all sides that interests me….

Filthily Rich and an Airplane

Is this the American sin? Are we rich towards God, or simply just rich? Are our ministries more interested in purchasing, yet another airplane, or are we being led by the Lord? Now God isn’t against airplanes per-se, but it certainly makes us raise an eyebrow when we hear such stories. To be fair, Jesse…

The Laws of Men and Cake

When the founding father’s looked at the laws of the Bible and recognized that it created a safe society for growth and exploration. It supported the family, who are literally the building blocks of society. It taught men to respect the rule of law. To lead a people who governed themselves. They saw something great,…
