Take ‘Em To School!

Here is another advertisement for a good man doing good work, oh how beautiful are his feet! Keith Darrell is a traveling evangelist preaching at university campuses all over America. I have written him up once before here, and now I am doing so again to encourage you to subscribe to his YouTube channel. Keith […]

The Flaming Church

This Sunday is the celebration of Pentecost. Below is my sermon from last year on Acts 2:1-41. Pentecost takes place ten days after Christ’s Ascension into heaven. He ascended forty days after His resurrection and the Spirit came ten days after Christ’s ascension, on Pentecost. Throughout church history colors have been very important. For the […]

Keith Darrell: Shattering Hearts of Stone

This weekend we had the opportunity to host campus preacher, Keith Darrell, from Whitefield Fellowship. I am here to point you toward him and what he does, so that you may support him with prayers and finances. This is an endorsement, not an advertisement, but if you feel so inclined to donate to Whitefield Fellowship, […]

Yes, Men Should Cry

This weekend I was out of town with my family. We visited our framily (friend family) in Wisconsin and celebrated the union between a man and a woman, both our friends, in marriage. It was a hootin’ hollerin’ good time. I was up there next to the groom and the other members of the wedding […]

The Rich Man

My Bible, over the passage in Mark 10:17-31, says this: The Rich Young Man. I don’t know why we assume this guy was young. He was obviously rich, 10:22, but there is nothing I can see that would lead us to believe he was young. I guess that might not matter and it depends who […]

Wilbur (The Gospel Pig) And A Defeated Dragon

Just a note for anyone squeamish: there are pictures of a delicious pig carcass. One of the things we would like to do as Christians at Emmanuel Chapel is make Easter as important as Christmas. The Resurrection of Jesus is every bit as important as the Incarnation of Jesus. In the Incarnation Light came into […]

Why Have Corporate Confession?

A corporate act of confession on the Lord’s Day is, historically, a no-brainer. Back in the day when the body of Christ was understood as a body, not a conglomerate of individuals having an emotional moment, it was common place for Christians to kneel together and with a communal voice confess their sin together. Why? […]

The Authority of Jesus

Here is another nugget that won’t make it into my Palm Sunday sermon. Read Mark 11. At the end of this encounter, Jesus’s opposition confronts Him concerning His authority to do all that He has down. He borrowed a donkey, He rode into Jerusalem as a conquering king, He inspected the house of Yahweh and […]

The Son Of Man And The Flaming Sword

I preached on Mark 8:27-9:1 and I focused on one aspect of Jesus’s teaching in verses 8:38-9:1 which read as follows, “For whoever is ashamed of Me and of My words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when He comes in the glory of His Father […]

Stouthearted Christians Needed

What happened to the Christianity that bleeds? It is interesting to note what Christians in history did because of what they believed. I remember back in a philosophy course when my atheist professor said, “Beliefs are action guiding.” I will never forget that. He was right. We see the truth of that statement all around […]
