Lesser Of Two Evils Nonsense

Christians cannot vote for any Democratic candidate, or any candidate from any party, that supports the abortion of infants. Christians must steadfastly reject any candidate that wants to take taxpayer dollars to spill the blood of children. This is evil, and because abortion is such an evil,  Christians cannot vote for anyone who supports it. […]

Can Christians Lie?

Now, that title might seem a little cute. Of course, Christians are capable of lying, that is, they have the ability to lie. However, this is what I am getting at: is lying permitted by Christian ethics? Let me back up a couple steps. The other day I pressed the “scan” button on my car […]

Victory Over ISIS

The Islamic State is evil. This is easy to document and if you doubt this claim, just head over to Google and search for what ISIS is doing currently. However, aside from the international news, I have it on good authority that ISIS is wicked, “He that is not with Me is against Me” (Luke […]

Here It Comes Again

So, here it comes again, the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. It breaks my heart that 50,000,000 babies, images of God, sons and daughters, people, have been murdered. It breaks my heart that this holocaust is occurring, and our culture and churches are numb to it. It happens in a sterile room, out of sight, […]

Unforgiveness and Forgiveness

Jesus is the new Adam (1 Corinthians 15:45) and with His resurrection from the dead He has begun the reformation of the entire cosmos (2 Corinthians 5:17 and Revelation 21:5) which is exactly what the Prophets foretold would happen (Isaiah 11:1-10). Jesus, being the true Adam that has overcome sin, death, and the devil, is […]

A Smattering of Goodies (September)

There are some good freebies out there for us this month, along with some insightful blog articles. Check them out. Ligonier is giving away the ebook, Welcome to a Reformed Church: A Guide for Pilgrims by Daniel Hyde. I have not read this book by Pastor Hyde, but I have read some other literature by him […]

Not My Jesus!

I preached on Sunday and I was drawing a parallel between the time of the Judges and the church in post-Christian America. I made the comment that America at large is hostile to the Word of God, and for an experiment I offered this suggestion: Go home and put Leviticus 18:22 on Face Book and […]

Shake Up and Wake Up

Many of you know that it is the anniversary of Roe v. Wade and the blogosphere and social media are replete with feminists advocating the slaughter of living tissue and Christians advocating against the murder of image bearers. So, I thought I would do a little round up. These blogs are emotional to be sure, […]

You’re Just Silly…Good One!

Driving home from our Christmas vacation with the family we passed through Chicago and I glanced over at the skyline lit up with green and red lights (I hope that is not too religious for some, but hey, I didn’t put the lights there) and I spotted a billboard that read, “Marriage for All.” And […]

Reformation Day

Rather than attempting to cover the history and meaning of Reformation Day for you, I have enlisted those much wiser, and much smarter than myself to help with this. Below is a smattering of goodies (historical essays, theological blogs, music, and free resources). The Glory of the Reformation by Kevin DeYoung. The theological, and practical […]
