Eating a Slice of Humble Pie

Yesterday I had an opportunity to spend 3 hours with a local pastor and get an insight into some of the difficult work some of our Pastors do that often goes unnoticed. Years earlier this pastor faced a very tough personal economic situation where he and his family weren’t sure how they were going to […]

Ten problems with the “salt and light” excuse for feeding children to the State.

Here in 2015 America, there is little doubt that we are being blessed by God with a return by more and more of His people to the loving detail of His Word when it comes to the vital, culture-shaping subject of children’s education. Let’s not lose sight of this beautiful truth. Let’s celebrate it and thank God […]

The Curse of Magic Christianity

Praying that God will do miraculously what we refuse to do through obedience Why do we pray for God to “magically” do what He has commanded and equipped us to do through His Spirit and Word? Why do we pray for God to “do something” to protect our children from the consequences of the very things […]

Nerf Sword

The Rubber Sword of Toothless Truth

It looks awesome from a distance. Sounds great, too – whistling through the wind as its proud owner swings it here , there and everywhere, like a skilled and dangerous soldier or knight. But, at the end of the day, it’s just a toy. The wannabe soldier is merely pretending. His sword is a fake; an imitation without an edge. […]

The Insanity and Consequence of Islam (and all anti-Christ worldviews)

In the wake of this week’s attack by militant Muslims on the headquarters and staff of the magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris, we’re being spun and propagandized even more intensely than usual by a world at war with God. We really do need to remember that. As ambassadors for Christ the King and the only agents capable […]

Why is the beast of Socialism eating our children? Ask your pastor.

Ah, State-controlled children’s “education”. Is there anything more warmly regarded by the typical American? Right outta the Communist Manifesto, yet adored and defended by most professing conservatives in America. Built plainly upon the satanic approach to the pursuit of knowledge, yet adored and defended by most professing Christians in America. Talk about a gigantic, disgusting, yet very much cherished […]

Why should we stay biblically balanced through political tidal waves?

I must admit to having had a giddy good time of it Tuesday night, watching Democrat after Democrat fall. It was an absolute blast. Even better, as a Tennessee resident who had the opportunity to support the “Yes on 1” campaign, it was thrilling and gratifying to see that amendment pass, allowing for my Bible-belt state […]

How do we stop America’s voter-assisted suicide?

It’s Election Day in America, and all the familiar gears, wheels, and tools of propaganda are in full motion. The (mostly) controlled game is on and the (mostly) contrived drama is thick. “Will the Republicans be returned to power in the Senate?” “Will the Democrats be taught a painful lesson?” “Will the country be saved from […]

ReformationVsDeath

On October 31, are we walking dead or are we supernatural reformers?

So what is today to you? Is it Halloween, Reformation Day, or just another Friday? Most professing Christians would go with the first or the last. The middle option usually isn’t even on our radar. Most of us don’t even know that there is such a thing as Reformation Day…or that there is, in fact, right here […]

EbolaAirways

Of course Ebola is airborne. It flies in from Africa all the time.

So the hits just keep a-comin’… Sure, ISIS, Ebola and the like are inherently horrifying and all, but it’s the way in which these threats are understood and handled by our “leaders” that just seems to amplify the tragedy and terror in…well…a sometimes comically awful sort of way. Has this year not been one incredible run […]

AsFearGoesViral

Are you calmly embracing reality?

So we now have two confirmed Ebola sufferers who contracted the virus from America’s Ebola Airways–delivered Patient Zero, Thomas Duncan. Both of them are trained professional medical workers who, presumably, took fairly thorough precautions in dealing with Mr. Duncan. Since the arrival of that first viral seed, Ebola Air has brought us a second opportunity for […]

What does the Gospel and Great Commission have to do with Ebola?

One of the greatest tools of the enemy and the old, worldly nature against which Christians struggle is distraction. We are easily distracted. Everything in this world tells us that everything but the whole, undiluted Gospel should be our focal point in life. Oh sure, you can “believe the Gospel” and “love the Lord” in […]

Preparing for Ebola with Confidence and Hope

Since last week’s revelation of America’s own Patient Zero having been diagnosed with the Ebola virus, many of us have become either glued, unglued, or both. Americans by the tens of millions have become glued to their computers, radios, televisions and cell phones for the latest developments, and sometimes unglued by falling headlong into “NOOOOOOO! It’s the end […]

Idolatry

America’s lesson to creation: Pride, freedom and liberty are stupid, destructive, and gay…when centered on anything but God.

What does pride, freedom, and liberty look like when severed from the law and nature of God their basis? We are increasingly able to provide a one-word answer to that ugly question, and that answer is: America. As reported earlier today, the Supreme Court of the United States has turned away appeals Monday from five states […]

TooBigToFail

Too big to fail is too wrong to tolerate.

  Ever wonder why it is that folks who make the most mind-numbingly moronic economic decisions on the most grand, globally impactful scale, tend to barely suffer any sort of meaningful personal consequence for their world shaking acts of stupidity? Every wonder why certain people, businesses, corporations, and governments can again and again and again […]

Faith, Courage, and Hope in the Face of Ebola

What a difference a day makes. Just 24 hours ago, we had not yet gotten the news that an Ebola-infected “patient zero” had been diagnosed in America. Up until that moment, many of us prayed and hoped that this devastating plague would not find its way to our land. Others artificially preserved their optimistic take through an ignorance-is-bliss […]

Remember when a bunch of naked guys on bikes riding past a crowd of little girls was a bad thing?

Remember the good ol’ days when something like a parade of naked men on bikes riding by a bunch of little girls downtown in broad daylight, waving and smiling as they went along, would have resulted in either an arrest, a lynching, or some similarly appropriate beatdown? Such approaches to things like naked men riding […]

Two words to help us trust, obey, and adore God.

How reliable is God? How sure are His promises? Does He ever have (or need) a Plan ‘B’? These are important questions to ask. How we answer them will greatly impact our approach to proclaiming the Gospel and applying the Great Commission, particularly in the dark and darkening culture in which our Lord has placed […]

The Intolerance of emergent (liberal) Christianity

An excellent article by Mike Ratliff over at Possessing the Treasure. I’ve included a snippet below, but please read the entire piece here: The Intolerance of emergent (liberal) Christianity …Orthodoxy says that salvation is by Grace through faith alone. It says that we are justified by faith not works of any kind. However, the liberal […]

"Church of Tares" a must-see video

Got two hours of time to spare?  I hope so, because if you’ve ever wondered what the “big deal” is about the fruit of the Purpose Driven Church created by Peter Drucker and championed by Rick Warren, Bob Buford and Bill Hybels, this free video is well worth your time.  At about an hour and […]
