Set Your Phone To “On” At My Church

We understand that people are not sitting in our pews watching Netflix, playing games, or visiting naughty sites. We understand you know how to silence your phone. We understand it is very likely your Bible, Hymnal, and primary way to communicate with others, during the service, in a way that will not disrupt others sitting around you.

Simply Faith–not Simple Faith

God can’t be alive in dead things like history, manuscripts, and archeological relics if He is not alive and kicking in the love and compassion of Believers. There is more substance of evidence in the life of an addict who finds sobriety in Christ, than in finding the foundation of an ancient wall in Jericho.

The Thirteen: One Crisis

We all must, as Bible-believing, liberty-loving Christians, stand up and demand that the Government get out of our pulpit, out of our Bible, and out of the business of justifying political policy with subjective interpretations of our Bible! We must not forsake our liberty of religious freedom, by handing over our religious understanding to the State to use, even if with good intentions, lest we find that Caesar is the only version of God we have left!

It’s A Beautiful Day

I want to be a good parent. What makes me “hover” like that. Ugh, am I going to become one of those annoying parents that can’t let go or have excessive boundary issues? No, I know why I do it...

The Christian Who Cried Wolf

Why do Christians in the west think they are currently being persecuted? Listen up, Church! The Wolf really is coming! The wolf is real and no joke! We all know the story of the boy who cried wolf.

The Come Back of Cults: THE SMALLVILLE EDTION

The authority in true cults is not given to a broad base of leaders, but is almost always centered on a central, hierarchical figure who rules, reinterprets truth, and hands out lavish rewards to the “Faithful” and harsh rebuke and punishment of dissenting and independent thinkers.

Christianity’s Struggle with Authority -Guest Blog Daniel Royo

This blog post highlights the history of the struggle, with a particular emphasis on developments of the last 2000 years. Despite our human tendencies, God proposes self-governance, not centralized power, as His preferred solution to sin-induced chaos.

Faith and Fake News: Facing The Facts

Think before you click. Think more before you get upset. Think even more before you buy into the emotional hook of a fake story. And think best before you share because it is not your name you embarrass, it is the credibility of those bearing the Gospel that is a stake. Don’t be duped into doing the devil’s deeds.

The LIE Christians Tell About The Gospel

The same old lies and justifications came flooding back. “Jesus, knows things we don’t,” and “There had be some level of repentance in Mathew” and “Jesus couldn’t help that the other tax collectors came.” And lastly, crux of what I call the “lie,” someone said, “Pastor, Jesus would never let someone follow Him unless they were truly repentant.” That was a lie!

Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus -(A Reflective Book Review)

Nabeel, fought Christ the whole way through his journey to Truth. But, when he got to his wits’ end, he would pray and ask Allah to show him how to refute error, or to know the truth about Islam. Each time, “Allah” would lead him deeper into Christian truth. Eventually, Allah started sending Nabeel, clearer and clearer visions and dreams, that, even when decoded by his Muslim mother, was screaming at Nabeel: “Jesus is the only way to God. To be with God, is to accept Jesus as the Savior from our sins. “

Direct Talk On Doubt

Shame, and shaming, only exposes our own noir de nadir fears, that perhaps their doubt is true, and that Jesus won’t show up, and our only option it to silence them, with force if necessary, before it spreads. Understand though, if you engage in such nonsense it is because you lack faith in the ability of Jesus to show up and prove himself.

Iconic Evil: Exploring Where Monsters Come From

Manson is the image that first comes to mind when someone says, “cult leader” or “mass killer” or “human evil.” Rightfully so, because his type of evil is both rare and petrifying; but is it really the greatest evil my generation has seen? In a way, iconic evil is the way we scapegoat evil human nature by replacing it with iconic figures so we don't have to notice our own level of evil.

Are We There Yet?

I remember when I was in India doing evangelism with a group of pastors. We baptize just under seven thousand Hindus into Christianity. I literally took part in a baptism service by a river bank in India that went on from sunup to sundown and never ended nor finished. It makes me think, there is so much work left to be done. Who is going to do it?
