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 […]

Free Stuff Is Not Always Good Stuff, But This Is

I’m excited to bring you some free content from Emmanuel Chapel. We have been posting the Lord’s Day sermons, of course, and those are free and can be found, here. We have also begun to generate extra content for free, and so far we have put out two brief essays. The first essay concerns itself […]

A Brief Reveiw

In 164 pages Richard Bledsoe, in his Metropolitan Manifesto, delivers the history of Western civilization through an astute theological and psychological framework opening up the curtains and shedding light on the current state of Christendom in declining nations while unwrapping the only hope of the future, namely, Jehovah God. This book is written, primarily for pastors, […]

God’s Cosmic Loogie

A Lord’s Supper Meditation I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. Revelation 3:15-16 In the Old Covenant, one of the purposes of the ascension offering was […]

The Law and the Christian

I am continuing to teach on God and human sexuality on Sunday morning and we have been covering various topics. Coming up soon is the relation between God’s Law and the Christian. Many will say that the Law of God does not apply, and therefore its prohibition against homosexuals is no longer valid, after all […]

Pentecost Snippets Part 6

The other posts are here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5. In Acts 2, we have God giving His Holy Spirit to the church. I have been looking at what this means throughout the Bible in various aspects of biblical theology, and in this post I want to point out how […]

The Church Is The Answer

I am preaching on John 13 at our Maundy Thursday service because Maundy Thursday is about the mandatum novum, the new commandment, from Christ in John 13:34. John 13:34 is huge, however the primary purpose Jesus gives for the giving of this command is in the following verse, “By this all men will know that you are […]

Eve From Adam Part 3

It has been a little bit since I posted in this little series, so if you would like to refresh yourself on what I have already said, here is Part 1 and Part 2. 21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his […]

Lent In A Sin Full World

The world we live in, as the title of this post suggests, is sinful. I do not mean that the stuff of the world is sinful, but the peoples of the world are sinful. Each and every person is corrupt, polluted, and in rebellion. It has been said that the biblical doctrine of Total Depravity […]

A Stab At 666

Eschatology fascinates the church. People love to hear about the book of Revelation (although many do not read it very carefully and I was one of them!). Popular books, television shows, and film incorporate many aspects of biblical theology concerning the Judgment to come at the hands of Jesus Christ, and all of these venues […]
