In a non-film story all too common today: How to grow […]

Fight the Spiritual Forces of Wickedness — and Win!

  Some of the news headlines this past week gave me reason for concern.  Here are a few of them: Satanic Temple Approved for [Florida] Capitol Holiday Display Legal group: repeal of D.C. amendment will have ‘severe impact on religious liberty’ ‘We love Jesus!’ – Iraqi children proclaim love for Christ in face of Islamic […]

Pastor: Don’t share Scripture with me (if my kids are gay)

An article by a pastor named John Pavlovitz has gone viral, and it is accomplishing its purpose: to let Christians know that it’s okay to be gay, in spite of any Scripture telling us otherwise. In fact, this pastor doesn’t want to hear any of you well-meaning Scripture-sharers, so don’t bother sending him email. “I […]

The teachings of Joyce Meyer

I am sharing one of the most comprehensive articles on Joyce Meyer’s teachings I’ve seen yet. It’s from CARM (Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry), and it is matter-of-fact, non emotional, non-attacking – just the facts. The Bereans in Acts 17 compared what Paul was telling them about Messiah to the Scripture, and that is what […]

Addressing concerns over “Son of God” film

Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. ~Eph 5:11  Not surprisingly the movie “Son of God” has created quite a stir in the Christian community.  Before I gave the theater my money I read several reviews, blog posts, Facebook comments and viewed TV interviews of husband and wife team […]

“Son of God” is NOT about the Son of God.

Did you spend your money on the Son of God film? Writer Sunny Shell over at Abandoned to Christ gives a blow-by-blow account of the biblical discrepancies that should inspire you to stay home and read the Book instead: Movie Review: ‘Son of God’ Is Most Certainly Not The Son of God By Sunny Shell […]

How we've re-shaped Jesus

How we’ve re-shaped Jesus

We understand that the world cannot see the truth of who Christ is without the spiritual eyes to discern. You and I were there at one time, before we had the spiritual eyes to know Truth. John 14:17 says, “He is the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor […]

Christian Denominations Turn Up Heat on Wycliffe Bible Translators

Christian Denominations Turn Up Heat on Wycliffe Bible Translators

  Elijah Abraham, a member of Biblical Missiology and Living Oasis Ministry (and frequent guest on our program), sent along this news today. He has been very involved in keeping extreme contextualization out of Muslim outreach ministries, and has publicly challenged many organizations that have been involved in the Insider Movements, CAMEL, Jesus in the […]

Is Full Blown Apostasy Right Around the Corner?

I am fascinated when I compare the first century Christian church with what we see in America these days. As any organization grows from a small to a larger institution there is what experts refer to as “missional drift” that can occur. “Missional drift” refers to how when an organization grows, it often loses focus […]

Real Faith in God

Real Faith in God

In Hebrews we are taught that without faith it is impossible to please God.  Faith is what the Christian life is all about—we worship a God we cannot see, and believe in faith that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, died and rose from the dead.  We have no empirical truth that these facts are […]

Islam Impressions

Islam 101

Think you know Islam? It is the second largest religion in the world, only surpassed by Christianity. Islam was “born” from the writings of Mohammed, who claimed he received additional teachings from the angel Gabriel. Islam considers the writings of Judaism and Christianity “completed” by the Qur’an, the sacred book of Islam. Our guest today […]

Bringing the true Word to the Muslim people

Christians who witness to people all over the world want to bring the Truth of God’s Word to those who do not know Him.  We know that Christians are being persecuted in the Middle East, and we know–but perhaps don’t fully understand–the true cost of following Christ and leaving other religions such as Islam. As […]

The "uncompromising" truth of Jesus as Son?

The "uncompromising" truth of Jesus as Son?

Here is a question: Should biblical translators take the words Father and Son out of the Bible in order to better reach the Muslim world with the “truth” of the Gospel? Or are these translations failing to portray God as who He is: the eternal, loving God the Father, Son and Spirit, with the deity […]

Lost In Translation: Keep "Father" & "Son" in the Bible

Lost In Translation: Keep "Father" & "Son" in the Bible

Western missions agencies Wycliffe, Frontiers and SIL are producing Bibles that remove Father, Son andSon of God because these terms are offensive to Muslims.Some examples: • Wycliffe/SIL produced Stories of the Prophets, an Arabic Bible that uses “Lord” instead of “Father” and “Messiah” instead of “Son.” • Frontiers worked with an SIL consultant to produce True Meaning of the Gospel of […]

Will Israel Stand Firm?

Watching events unfold in the Middle East always brings me mixed emotions. Christians have a mandate to defend Israel and the Jews according to the bible. In John 4:22 Jesus declares that salvation is from the Jews. As God’s chosen people, the Jews were the people God chose to deliver His Holy Word and bring […]

What Do I mean When I Say "I am a Christian"?

When someone would say “I am a Christian” it used to be that it was pretty clear what they stood for.  These days that statement should cause us to dig a little deeper and question just what a person means when they make that statement. Being a “Christian” these days can range from a strict […]

Afraid? Or excited?

I confess that when I first became a Christian all the talk of a conspiracy working toward a one world government or religion seemed a bit far fetched to me.  I always thought people who wrote about these subjects seemed just a tad on the paranoid side.  But as I immersed myself in the prophetic […]

Cooperation or Compromise?

As we have discussed previously, there is a movement within certain Christian circles to find common ground and dialogue between Muslims and Christians. These Christian leaders believe that if we can find a common set of beliefs between the two religions, we can develop a common dialogue and basis for cooperation. Well, as we learned […]
