What is “…for me”?

August 29, 2010

1 Comment

Warning!  Beware!  Danger ahead!! That is what should go through your mind when you hear a preacher or speaker use the phrase “for me”.  It is a red flag warning sign that the person speaking does not believe in truth, logic or God’s Word, even if they profess that they do.  Now to clarify, I […]

“Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him.” – Genesis 5:24 Autumn is right around the corner, and with it a new season of activity for many who go by the name “Christian”.  School is starting for children, seasonal jobs are ending (or beginning), political activity will be increasing, and even […]

An Accurate Testimony

August 26, 2010

4 Comments

So much teaching about evangelism these days focuses on “sharing our testimony” as if the fact we as Christians live better lives will somehow save people from sin, death and the devil.  It won’t.  Our new & improved life, sense of purpose and accomplishment, along with freedom from addictions is NOT the Gospel.  A good therapist, exciting career […]

Is “Enmity” the Problem?? Pt.3

August 26, 2010

0 Comments

I am guessing this will be the last of the posts on the passage discussing “Enmity with God”.  If we were to insist on discussing every instance of the visible church trying to not only be friends with an immoral society, but to imitate them, well, we wouldn’t get any sleep.  Truly there is no […]

Spotlight on… Voice of the Martyrs!

“By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” – John 13:35 We here at ChurchSalt occasionally draw attention to ministries worthy of prayer and support.  In our humble opinion, Voice of the Martyrs is a ministry very worthy of support!  Why?  Before answering that, let […]

How does Jesus stack up??

August 23, 2010

I read a great little article over at “Extreme Theology” today.  It is a comparison of how talented and dynamic Jesus was as speaker & leader as compared to all the CEO-type pastors running around these days.  It seems the majority of modern pastors study church growth techniques, acoustics, and the possible needs of potential […]

ON “little” SINS

August 21, 2010

The Christian is commanded not to sin.  As our Father changes our desires (Philippians 2:13) He opens our eyes to the sin in our life, and we begin to hate it and strive against it.  But, having a sinful nature, we still sin.  This process of hating and fighting sin through the strength God gives […]

Try Harder… it isn’t THAT heavy!!

Have you noticed the common theology coming from many pulpits these days?  Emergent Church types tell us that coming together to do good in the world is the Gospel.  Benny Hinn, Joel Osteen, Joyce Meyers and the all the other prosperity types teach us the Gospel is the fact that if we do this and […]

In the middle of the 6th chapter of John (a chapter in which Jesus performs several of His more famous miracles) is a rebuke.  It is a rebuke aimed at people who appeared to be followers of Christ, but were following Him for the wrong reasons.  Not horrible, evil, immoral reasons, just wrong reasons.  Any onlookers would […]

The Truth of Adoption

August 15, 2010

I was recently browsing “Musings from a Theo-Geek“, which is a blog I stumbled upon just this weekend, and found a terrific article addressing the true nature of our adoption.  When I say, “our adoption” I am referring to the adoption of the Christian into the family of God.  The legal act made possible by […]
