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 […]

The Word Of Life

Psalm 119:25 “My soul clings to the dust; Revive me according to Your word.” The reference to dust in this verse draws our minds back to the creation of the first man, Adam, formed of the dust of the earth (Genesis 2:7). When God formed Adam from the dust, He breathed life into him making 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 […]

What Is Scripture?

When thinking about the Bible we often think of it as merely a book. It has pages, sometimes they are gilded, it has a binding either glued or sewed, it has a front cover and a back cover, a table of contents, and usually a small concordance in the back, page numbers, titles, paragraph breaks […]

The Need For A Sovereign God

I have been pondering the implications of God’s sovereignty, or the loss of it, rather. It is a rather unpopular notion that God is in control of all things, and by all things, I mean all of them. God sustains every particle of existence by His will; He is in control of the events of […]

Everyone Should Watch This

This video is just shy of 26 minutes, so make sure you can set aside some time. It is a very important interview, because these two men introduce viewers to an accurate way to read Scripture while dispelling common misconceptions about the Bible. For example, John 3:16, the most popular verse in the Bible, is very […]

Some Thoughts On Finding a Church

I have been thinking about what a church ought to look like, and there has been much ink spilled on this topic, so I intend only to make some general remarks. At the end of this blog you will find some recommended books. First, a church must promote and preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. […]

He Gets It, And So Does She

I came across a letter John Piper wrote to a 13-year old girl about reading the Bible and how we can go ever deeper into the Word of God. I have copied the letter below, but if you prefer to read it from the Desiring God website you can click here. I hope that this […]

What Is Most Important? Part 5

This is the final installment in a series about the importance of the Bible. You can read the other posts here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4. As I said in Part 1, this final post will reflect how our lives, as students of the Word of God, should be impacted by the […]

What Is Most Important? Part 4

This is the fourth post in a series on the Word of God, and today we will be looking at inerrancy. By the word inerrancy we mean the Bible is without error. This point is contested, of course, because the Bible is written by man through thousands of years of transference. However, we must also realize […]
