Resolve To Know God in 2012

I saw a study that projects nearly 100 million Americans would make 2012 New Year’s resolutions and that by the end of January, nearly 90% would walk away from that resolution.  So how are you doing and just what was your resolution this year?  I might suggest that if your primary resolution was anything short […]

"The Shack"–enter or steer clear?

I remember when “The Shack” first came out—it seemed every Christian I knew was reading it.  A friend gave me a copy and encouraged me to read it.  As I started I just didn’t feel right about how the author was portraying God and I stopped reading it. I saw my friend who gave me […]

Unity around what?

The situation between Dr. Jack Van Impe and Trinity Broadcast Network is fascinating, yet very sad.  While it is unfortunate when Christian ministries have to part ways in disagreement, it is something we might just have to get used to. Van Impe believes Pastors like Rick Warren and Robert Schuller are promoting Chrislam and in […]

Compromising our Christian Faith?

We talk a lot about Islam on Stand Up For the Truth.  And we do this for a couple reasons which I would like to share.  First we discuss it because Islam is a real threat to Christianity.  Islam is both a religion and a philosophy of government and these two components cannot be divided.  […]

The End Game of Emergers

To better understand what Emergent Church leaders teach and why, it is important to understand how they see the end of the book playing out.  Their view on Jesus’ return is much different than what most Christians believe. The Book of Revelation talks about Jesus’ return to conquer and vanquish evil, creating a new heaven […]
