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 […]

Are You a Professional Christian? You should be…

November 11, 2015

Shamelessly stolen from Marc Minter of First Baptist Church, Diana, Texas: “I did not know this until recently, but the term “professional” actually came into use as Protestant Christians argued against any division between things that are ‘sacred’ and things that are ‘secular.’ There are some who believe that these two realms either rarely or […]

Christian Worship Music – the Golden Calf?

I originally posted this about five years ago, but the website referenced went down.  With the link now fixed, I thought it might be a good idea to blow the dust off this post and put it out there again: Recently I had an experience that profoundly troubled me.  Visiting a local Church (Southern Baptist, […]

“I cannot for the life of me see how any man with even the slightest knowledge of history can help recognizing the fact that we are living in a time of sad decadence. A decadence only thinly disguised by the material achievements of our age, which already are beginning to pawl on us like a […]

Little White Crosses – Gospel or Condemnation?

January 18, 2015

6 Comments

It’s that time again!  It is that time of year when all the local churches start filling their front yards with little white crosses symbolizing all the children that have died in abortions.  That’s good, right?  Shouldn’t the church publicly denounce sin?  Well….yes.  And shouldn’t the church try to encourage those considering abortion to instead […]

Amen…right?

“Amen”  It’s a simple close to our prayers, and one that’s almost always overlooked or uttered without much though.  Maybe I’m being a bit over-analytical, but can I encourage you to pause before spitting this word out as though it has no meaning?  It’s my belief we should always stop and reflect before giving an “Amen”.  Why?  Glad you […]

“There is a sense in which we moderns are inundated with facts to the detriment of understanding.  One of the reasons for this situation is that media is so designed as to make thinking seem unnecessary (though this is only an appearance).  The packaging of intellectual positions and reviews is one of the most active […]

The Children Eat our Fruit

This post isn’t about what you see as you watch the above video.  But I will say that this video is sad – really sad.  This child is blindly devoted to a satanic counterfeit god of hate and it’s heartbreaking to watch.  But this post isn’t about him.  Nor is this post about religious devotion and fervor.  While the child […]
