Where Is Our Faith These Days?

Without faith, it is impossible to please God.  This verse in Hebrews always has me doing a gut check on my walk with God.  Way too often, my faith seems to lack real power.  And when trials and troubles arise, I still sometimes find myself worrying instead of completely trusting that God has things in […]

Choose This Day Whom You Will Serve

I believe it was Edmund Burke who said “All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing”. Well yesterday in hundreds of Christian churches across the nation, pastors placed Korans next to Bibles and many read from the Koran as part of their so called “worship service”.    I am […]

Truth or Consequences

This Sunday, hundreds of “christian” churches will have Korans in their pews and many pastors will read from the Koran as part of their church service.  All in the name of “unity”. I wonder how many Mosques will allow the Bible, the absolute truth of God’s Word, to be read on Sunday?  Sadly, probably none.  […]

When To Say "Not On My Watch!"

We are called by Jesus to be light and salt to the world.  Yet we are told to not be of the world.  Jesus went to Matthew’s house for dinner, knowing thieves and prostitutes would be there.   In 1 Corinthians 9:22, Paul says “…I have become all things to all men so that by all […]

When greening up the church becomes an agenda

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (11.5MB) There is a universal movement to elevate God’s earth to an object of worship.

The Need For Apologetics

A very interesting discussion has been taking place at stand up for the truth dot com and on our facebook regarding the role of apologetics in our Christian faith.  Some think it is crucial we be excellent apologetics for our faith while others basically think it is meaningless, because it is casting pearls before swine.  […]

Contemplative prayer: Is it biblical?

Contemplative prayer, also called Centering Prayer or Listening Prayer, has been advocated and taught by Thomas Merton, Thomas Keating, and Basil Pennington, as well as by  Richard Foster, Dallas Willard, Rick Warren and a host of others.  There is no one authority on this method, nor is there necessarily a consistent teaching on it, though […]

Apologetics: Playing it safe isn't working

Biblical apologetics, giving a defense and explanation of our Christian faith, seems to be a dying art these days.  A common argument from some Christians is “God doesn’t need me to defend Him.”  No, but God does want us to explain our faith so that others may come to know Him as the one true […]

Agenda-driven Church?

As a Christian and disciple of Jesus Christ, I really want to believe the best about people.  I want to take people at their word and not be skeptical about lining up what they say and how they behave.  But these days, some skepticism is not only healthy—it is also crucial in discerning true believers […]

Holiness is what we need

Lately God has me spending a lot of time praying over a message in the Book of Hebrews, Chapters 5 and 6.  The author is chastising believers about their slow progress as followers of Jesus.  Starting in Hebrews 5:12, he says: “In fact though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone […]

Rejoice In Our Suffering

Hey, I admit it—we cover some news on this show that can get downright depressing sometimes.  Our country turning its back on God more each day; political leaders who seem to lack any principles or good judgment; so-called Christians looking to blend Islam and Christianity.  It could be easy to get down and depressed about […]

Real Leaders Stand Up

You know, deception would be easy to spot if it wore a neon sign that said “False teachings here”.  Unfortunately, satan is far too clever for that.  Instead, as scripture says, he often appears as an angel of light—with words that sound good but lead to lies and destruction. Satan tempted Eve with what sounded […]
