Think, Christian….Think!!

October 10, 2017

1 Comment

One thing I am constantly teaching my children and encouraging others to do is to think for themselves.  Really think.  To put aside what they have been told by their friends and culture and to logically think through issues on their own.  For example, when speaking of racial issues and distinctions, I have more than […]

Is It Time for You to Attack the British?

August 23, 2017

1 Comment

Some might find this post a little odd, irrelevant and disturbing (in that order), but I beg of you to stick with me until the end.  I hope when you finish you aren’t disturbed as much as challenged.  What I don’t want is for you to write-off what it says simply because it may go […]

New Sermon – I AM

April 6, 2017

4 Comments

What’s in a name?  If your name is “I AM”, a lot!  God’s name holds profound meaning!  Unlike American names, His name is representative of who He is and what He is like.  We in the West don’t think like that as the meanings behind our names have mostly faded into obscurity, but we should […]

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

February 6, 2016

0 Comments

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 […]
