One of the things I have noticed the last few years is that here in the Bible Belt of the U.S. more and more pastors are using creativity and imagination in their sermons.  Not in the good way, which might be creative illustrations and new innovative methods of delivering the Gospel message.  No, the creativity […]

Just Tweet Those Sins Away!

July 20, 2013

Throughout all of Scripture, it’s made extremely clear that when sins are committed, our just God and Judge must hand down punishment.  After all, if He pardons the guilty, then He isn’t a just judge.  His uncompromising justice is made clear in several passages, including this one: Acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent — […]

No, this isn’t some photographic trickery done using a Photoshop program.  This really is a “Duck Dynasty” display at our local “Christian” bookstore (Mardels to be exact).  This will be a short post, and it’s on a subject that comes up a lot here at ChurchSalt.  If you are embracing the popular figures in our […]

I recently read an article regarding the Hindu festival “Kumbh Mela” where participants, amid much religious ceremony, bathe themselves in the Ganges river for the washing away of their sins (view article HERE).  They smear themselves with ashes and sand, pray prescribed prayers, and then descend into the water.  To most of us in the […]

Examining the Infallibility of the First Pope

November 5, 2012

0 Comments

Below is a portion of Matthew chapter sixteen.  The first segment of this passage is the one typically used by the Roman Catholic church to promote their belief that Jesus established Peter as the cornerstone and earthly head of the church (the first Pope).  I thought that perhaps a quick look at this whole idea might […]
