This Is War

Advent means coming. We often think of Advent as the time a baby is born, meek and mild, and laying in a manger no crying He makes (yeah right!). We often think of cozy little hay beds and fluffy winged angels and shepherds with red cheeks. I wonder, did the cattle barn have Christmas lights? […]

Eat The Blood

In Leviticus 17:10-12 we read of the prohibition against eating blood. God is said to set His face against the person who does this, in fact the person who eats blood will be cut out of the covenant altogether. The reason for this prohibition is that the life of the flesh is in the blood. […]

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? […]
