“I’m a Christian” Would You Define That Please?

The Bible warns us in many places that many who profess to be of the faith would fall away in the last days. The Church has always faced false teachings and false prophets seeking to infiltrate the Body of Believers to draw people away from the pure truth of God’s Word and the gospel of […]

The Players in Earth’s Final Battle

Gog, Magog, Meshech, Tubal, Persia, Cush, Put, Gomer and on and on.  These are lands and peoples identified in the Ezekiel 38 War that sets the stage for the return of Jesus Christ to judge all men. Without an understanding of who these people and nations are in our times it makes watching for signs […]

The Next Leaders in the Church

Every generation tends to look at the previous one and sees issues and problems they are determined to fix.  There is a natural human seed of rebellion in us that tells us the older generation is backwards thinking and steeped in tradition–and that “our” generation will get things right. But as the Word of God […]

Maintaining Order in a World of Chaos

  Just when you think this fallen world couldn’t get any more twisted or evil, the morning headlines greet us and the world again testifies to the depravity of man and the need for Jesus Christ.  An insecure former TV star spends millions on a sex change operation, and receives an award for “courage” by […]

Call To Unity–But Just Who is Calling?

Everyone from the Pope, to the President of the United States, to the United Nations, to many Evangelical Christian leaders, have been calling for world unity and peace.  And while the words “unity” and “peace” are appealing, one must look behind the scenes and ask just what would that “unity and peace” look like?  And […]

Is the Visible Church Surrendering on the Homosexual Issue?

Fresh off the SCOTUS ruling legalizing homosexual marriage, activists are pressing their advantage and seeking to silence anyone who disapproves of an act that the Bible clearly calls sinful.  Businesses are being threatened, and churches and Christian ministries are being warned that any public statements disapproving of homosexual marriage will be costly.  The battle for […]

Which “Spirit” Will We Listen to?

The collapse of a nation, an economy—or even a religion can happen in a couple different ways. Sometimes there is a single catastrophic event that destroys the foundation of institutions—but often it is years of smaller attacks at the foundation of institutions that eventually cause a collapse from within—or collapse from a relatively small event—sort […]

Where is Our Allegiance?

As we prepare for another 4th of July celebration in the United States, I notice a change in how I feel this time every year.  I used to feel a sense of pride when I was younger, placing my hand on my heart and pledging allegiance to the flag of the United States of America.  […]

Cowardice in Leadership

Today we continue to look at the fall out from the legalization of homosexual marriage and how Christian “leaders” are responding.  Some government employees are refusing to issue homosexual marriage licenses, citing religious conviction.  The response: comply or be fired. And Joel Osteen has weighed in on the decision.  Could he actually have a strong […]

The Message of the Message “Bible”

There are many translations of The Bible we can choose from these days.  Some are more literal while some take great liberties to present the original language in a more ‘reader friendly” format.  Then there are those that are not really Bibles at all–and today we discuss a paraphrase of the Bible that is becoming […]

Remaining Faithful in a World of Humanism

Next Monday the U.S. Supreme Court should weigh in on the defining decision regarding homosexual marriage in our nation.  If the Court dictates that homosexual marriage is a protected right the church will face a very interesting future.  If you believe the Church will not come under heavy pressure to affirm and support unbiblical marriage–well […]

Willow Creek and Christian Leadership

I have been thinking a lot lately about some closing comments I did on Stand Up For the Truth about 4 years ago. I compared our role to a pesky alarm clock that wakes you up at 4am out of a deep sleep, letting you know it is time to wake up and go to […]

Is Your Church and You a “Right Fit”?

The Bible teaches us that Christian fellowship is crucial to our lives as believers.  In this “market/consumer driven” era in which we live church hopping has become the norm as a growing number of professing Christians seek comfort over growth.  We would rather have a church that fits our lifestyle than be in a fellowship […]

Guiding the Church in Challenging Times

The first century Christian Church faced a variety of threats from outside and within.  Roman and Jewish persecution of believers and an influx of false teachers inside causing people to stray from the true faith were constant challenges the apostles wrote about to the early churches. God’s Word also wrote of the final days when […]

Lines are drawn. Which side are you on?

It has been an interesting week to say the least. The co-founder of Red Letter Christians, Tony Campolo, has finally come out and publicly acknowledged what many of us suspected for a long time—his full time endorsement for LGBT inclusion and acceptance within Biblical Christianity. And a worship leader at Bill Hybels’ Willow Creek Church […]

Understanding The Final Days

The Book of Revelation–The Revelation of Jesus Christ–is a crucial, yet confusing book.  It is the unveiling of the events on the earth in the final years before the return of Jesus Christ–and a warning to Christians to stand firm in the face of persecution. The Book is the most difficult one to understand in […]

Chipping Away at Church

The Christian Church in America is under increasing pressure to compromise with and conform to the “values” of this fallen, sinful world.  While it is no surprise that the world hates the Christian Church, it is alarming how many who profess to be Christians within the church seem to be active or passive participants in […]

Defending the Biblical Account of Creation

The battle for the hearts and minds of our youth is being waged aggressively within the media and public education.  One of the most sinister lies being told is that God did not create all things–rather that life is just a random act of a universe that magically came into existence on its own. Why […]

Christianity and The Culture War

The Christian Church is called to address the issues of society with the gospel, love and truth of Jesus Christ.  Over the past several decades many are concerned with how the church has been absent on issues like abortion, homosexual marriage and other issues.
