Book Release – Finally!

February 3, 2017

0 Comments

Those of you who have been stopping by here for a few years know that one of the things I’m most passionate about is that modern-day believers learn how to properly read (and understand) the Bible.  Because of this, I’ve been known to preach sermons and teach classes on the subject as well as writing […]

New Sermon – Approaching Advent (or Christmas)

December 9, 2016

2 Comments

How should we be approaching this Christmas or Advent season?  Should we try to find a new, fun and trendy way to take it all in or is there maybe an old-fashioned biblical way to celebrate the birth of the great Rescuer?  This sermon discusses how our forefathers in the faith looked toward their redeemer […]

If Bob is convinced that he has no need for a widget, the widget salesman is in for a really, really hard time when trying to sell Bob that widget.  But what if Bob really does need a widget, and needs one badly?  What if the widget will help Bob immensely for the rest of […]

1,142 New Ways to Go to Heaven

February 13, 2016

I’m a little short on time today and so can only offer you a brief post.  Another reason for the brevity is that sometimes you just look at something in dismay and say “Wow, I’m speechless”.  If you haven’t heard, this week Pope Francis appointed what are being called “super-confessors”.  These men are priests who […]

Professor Pencil Reveals All

Well, maybe Professor Pencil doesn’t reveal all, but he reveals a lot!  Professor Pencil is the teacher I hold in my hand who, if I will take just a few minutes to listen to him, can teach me many things.  You see, if we take a few minutes to look at a text and mark […]

Text Message!

December 30, 2015

0 Comments

Today is the second release in the new “Text Message” series.  What’s that all about, you ask?  Good question!  Text messages (at least here at ChurchSalt) are little snippets of Scripture that folks like you and I may find a bit challenging.  In some cases they might even make us uncomfortable!  But that’s good, right?  […]

A Christmas Look at Jesus

December 21, 2015

0 Comments

Often, around this time of year we hear so much about the baby Jesus and His birth that we begin to gloss over the whole thing a bit.  Veteran Christians are especially prone to this because we’ve celebrated Christmas so many times and heard so many sermons it can all be a bit redundant by […]

Jedi Church Brings a Bit of Shame to the Christian World

December 14, 2015

3 Comments

No, I’m not making this up.  Yes, there is an actual Jedi church based on the fictional Star Wars characters.  The part of this goofiness I find to be interesting is that this organization seems to invoke more devotion in its followers than many of today’s modern professing Christians.  How so?  Well, below is a […]

Contemplative prayer, Centering Prayer or….

November 16, 2015

0 Comments

If you haven’t noticed, there seems to be increasing attention on some of the more ancient prayer practices lately.  Centering prayer, contemplative prayer and meditation are all being discussed now with Christian application in mind.  While some of the authors promoting these ideas (Merton, Keating, etc.) may have some fine-sounding things to say regarding the […]

I Want What I Want

October 29, 2015

It amazes me how little thought people give to what they, and their leaders, say and do in these modern times.  For example, in California they have recently been debating the issue of end-of-life options and if legal options should include doctor assisted suicide.  Governor Jerry Brown, when asked to explain his approval of this […]

Christian Voices of Authority

October 22, 2015

4 Comments

 So have you been following the politics and back-door scheming currently going on in the Roman Catholic Church lately?  Myself, I haven’t been keeping real close tabs on it all, but the general movement of what’s going on has been of some interest to me simply because it has so much to do with theological […]

Narcissism – From the Bible ToYou

August 25, 2015

7 Comments

Narcissism has never felt so spiritual!  In watching the video below, you’re going to think it’s a parody or some sort of satirical look at how modern Christians often read the Bible, but sadly it isn’t.  It’s a real product, and people are really buying it.  The “ToYouBible” app (available on your pad or other […]
