The Not-For-Today Version of the Bible

Since the end of the 7th century, there have been over 450 versions of the Bible translated into English! In spite of the many versions of the Bible available today, there is one that is not on the market, but is used by multitudes of believers and unbelievers. I call it the "Not-For-Today Version." Many moderns use this version as they rant about how the Bible is just n...

Too Many Shirkers!

In his excellent book Death by Suburb, David Goetz tells about the theory of a biologist who majors on the study of deer and elk that created a lot of debate among other biologists by setting forth the theory of the “shirker bull.” Among elk and deer there’s a fall ritual called the “rut” in which the bulls square off against each other, butt...

"Shut Up!"- The Only Argument Left to the Leftist!

There is an old debater's tactic that says if the points of your argument are weak, shout and pound the podium to distract attention from it. Since history has demonstrated that all of the socialists, big-government, liberal leftists arguments are baseless, bankrupt and untenable, they have discovered that pounding the streets and shouting and screaming accusatory epithet...

Immorality- Forcing!

Today's most common and powerful tactic of the leftist liberals is to cry, "Stop trying to force your puritanical, dark age morality on me." And then by lobbying, legislating, and loud protesting, they attempt to force their immorality on those of us who believe that there are absolute standards of morality. The unending litany of indignant protests from the "immorality-f...

Surrounded- What Are We To Do?

2 Kings 6:15-20 The servant of Elisha the Prophet awakens one morning and goes outside only to see several thousand well-armed enemy troops surrounding their little town. Overwhelmed with fear, he cries out to the prophet, “Alas, what shall we do?” A vast number of American Christians are beginning to feel the same way, especially as they look about at the ri...

The Key to Growing Into A Loving Person

1 John 4:16a, "And we have known and believed the love that God has for us." John 17:23, "I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me."   Modern man's concept of love is largely defined and formed by Hollywood and Madison Avenue. If this premise is true, ...

The Powerlessness of the Excluded Middle Worldview

By “excluded middle,” I am not referring to the principle used in logic that argues a statement must be true or false, allowing no middle position, but rather the middle realm between God and man. In other words, many in the West have a two-tiered view of reality with religion (God, miracles) over science (natural laws, matter), but the realm between ...

The Many "Races" of People Issue

In light of current events, with emphasis upon the color of a person’s skin, and assertions of racial superiority,  and the suggestions by some that we are facing a “race war,”  we need to cut through the morass of false news and views and get to the real issue and its only answer. In a recent conversation with a dear friend, I was asked, "Wher...

Four Roman NONES and One Cardinal Truth!

Romans 3:9-12, “What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understands, there is none that seeks after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth ...

The Seduction of Moralism

Romans  3:12b, “…there is none that does good, no, not one.” From the outset of human history according to the scriptures in Genesis 2-3, we learn of the enemy's tactics of seducing Adam and Eve into disobeying God by eating of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. Satan persuaded our first parents to believe that they had an adequate capacity i...

In My Father's House

John 2:16, "And He said to those who sold doves, "Take these things away! Do not make My Father's house a house of merchandise!" To the surprise and even disappointment of many in Jerusalem, when Jesus arrived, his actions were not direct­ed at the oppressive Roman army, but at the Temple itself. N. T. Wright comments: "Declaring it [the temple] corrupt he performed ...

Rethinking the Way We Do Church

June 5, 2017 For a number of years, I have been of the opinion that if a strategy to reach people with the gospel, disciple them to reproductive maturity, and involve them in a true New Testament type church is biblical, it will work anywhere and at any period of time. In other words, if it requires huge amounts of money to keep the institution operating, years and years ...

JESUS is THE Central Issue of History!

June 12, 2017 On June 7, 2017, Senator Bernie Sanders (the man who almost won the Democrat nomination for the 2016 Presidential race) angrily shouted down Russell T.

David French, of the National Review, gives an abbreviated transcript of the interaction between Sand...

God's New Creation Was Launched in the Resurrection of Christ!

As we stated in a previous article, Christians should celebrate the Resurrection daily and not just annually at Easter because it is the day in which the “SON” came out of the tomb and all of history was changed forever in that historical event. Sam Gamgee, a fictional character in J. R. R. Tolkien's, The Lord of the Rings is speaking: "Gandalf! I thought you ...

Worshipping the God Who is Eternally Unchangeable- Part 2

"One can almost imagine a smile on people’s faces and perhaps long and loud laughter as well if one began to speak on the necessity of immutability for worship and how the immutability of God should move people to worship. We live in a day where things that are new and exciting are thought to be necessary for worship. We want things that move us and things that are o...

Worshiping the God Who is Eternally Unchangeable- Part 1

For us as 21st Century citizens, change seems to be the one constant in life. Times change, technology changes, the topography of the land changes, our bodies and the way they look changes, etc. It has been said that the only people who like change are babies with wet diapers. All of us who are beginning to be chronologically challenged can identify with the old fellow wh...

Jesus Is the Joy-Bringer That Can Transform Our Disappointments - Part 2

When Jesus came from Heaven to live on earth for 33 1/2 years, He brought the life and reign of the kingdom of heaven with Him. One of the obvious and most appealing dimensions of life in the kingdom of heaven is joy. So the first sign miracle Jesus performed was to demonstrate that life in the Kingdom of God is about a marriage feast of life and joy. In this third article...

Jesus Is The Joy-Bringer That Can Transform Our Disappointments

The disciple whom Jesus loved, John, tells us in John 2:11 that the miracle Jesus did in turning the water into wine was the "beginning of signs”. This creative-miracle-sign points us to a beginning that marks a new creation, a new age, a new world, and a new beginning. The miracles of Jesus in the fourth gospel are like flashing streetlights that signify identificat...

Life In The Kingdom of God is About A Marriage Feast of Life and Joy

Why do you think Jesus choose a wedding and the act of turning water into wine as His first miracle? I think He did so for a number of reasons, and one of them being in order to demonstrate what life in the world that He brought with Him was like. By this, we mean that Jesus brought the life and reign of the kingdom of heaven with Him to earth. One of the obvious and most ...

Christians Living in the INTENSIVE SCARE UNIT!

Your eschatology matters. What you believe about the future will determine much of how you live your life, how you view relationships, and even to a degree, how your character is shaped. Multitudes of Christians live full of fear due to what they have been told the Bible teaches about the shortness of the world’s time, and the nearness of Jesus’ any moment retu...

The Box And The Bag

Mark 14:1-9; John 12:6 In the house of Simon, the leper, the Holy Spirit juxtaposes two radically different lifestyles. In Mary, we are shown the broken-box lifestyle. In Judas, we see the bound-bag lifestyle. In Mary we see true spirituality. In Judas we are shown true carnality. In Mary we smell the fragrance of love for the Messiah. In Judas we smell the odor of a love...
