If evolution is true, Jesus is not.

This is a brilliantly written article pointing to the credentials of the leading expert in the historical evidence for Adam, Abraham, Jonah, Noah and many others whom scoffers – even scoffers in the visible church – say are just figments of someone’s imagination.

Jesus Christ "Superstar?"

It’s one thing when a secular men’s magazine idolizes a hip pastor, and quite another when a Christian magazine does it. Both are distasteful and anti-biblical, and both are part of a growing element in our culture that elevates men (and sometimes women) in church leadership to rock star status, leaving our Lord and Savior, […]

What's our end of the deal?

It is human nature to take for granted the things we cherish. Whether it is that new car, a brand new big screen television, or our latest technology gadget, the excitement of that new possession grows faint as we become familiar with it.

What do I know?

I recently received a loving rebuke from a pastor who is a long time friend and a Pentecostal. He was concerned that I had painted all Charismatics with the same brush. I read that letter in its entirety today on our Stand Up For The Truth program, and you are welcome to hear what he […]
