Joel Osteen Stats

July 18, 2014

4 Comments

This article just got posted this morning over at one of my favorite blogs, The Pulpit & Pen.  It is a short analysis of what Joel Osteen likes to talk about most and it proves to be interesting although not surprising.  If you think Joel likes to talk about Jesus, well… he doesn’t.  If you’re […]

Michael Bloomberg’s Conservative Christian Connection

April 17, 2014

0 Comments

Michael Bloomberg isn’t usually associated with being in lock-step with the majority of the conservative Christian voting block.  At least, not to my understanding.  But in a recent interview, Michael Bloomberg made a statement I found interesting in two different ways.  With the afterlife gaining prominence in his mind (he is 72 years old), Bloomberg had this […]

It seems the news is getting more and more interesting – in a bad way – as time goes on.  Take a look at a few recent articles and see if you notice anything they have in common.  Be careful as you read these – some of them might shock you! Christian decides if following God can be lived […]

The Children Eat our Fruit

February 3, 2014

0 Comments

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 […]

Warning – Unpopular Passages May Cause Discomfort!

January 23, 2014

0 Comments

I was reading this passage the other day and it struck me how very seldom (if ever) we hear passages like this discussed in the modern evangelical world.  While I underlined a few key points that are usually missing from modern preaching, I will not offer much commentary on this other than to point out that Scripture […]

2014 – Year of Heathen Rage?

January 9, 2014

0 Comments

2014 has been declared “Year of the Bible” by a mayor here in my beloved Texas.  That’s good, right?  The mayor of Flower Mound, Texas has made the declaration and it’s (of course) being met with both welcome and outrage.  You can read articles about it HERE or HERE if you would like.  If you do, be sure […]

True Christianity & the Truth of Man

December 14, 2013

1 Comment

I had never seen this video before watching it at another blog earlier today (HT Defending Contending).  This 20 minute video covers a lot of ground in regards to Scripture and culture thanks to the concise wording, sound doctrine and uncompromising boldness of Dr. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones.  I have no doubt it will sound offensive […]

Are American Pastors Using Bible Code?

November 6, 2013

0 Comments

  Today I stumbled across a short article (it’s actually more of an advertisement) for a video that explains how to use the Bible to make money (see article HERE).  This article claims that there’s a “Biblical Money Code” hidden in Scripture and all you need is the proper understanding of how to interpret the […]

Purpose Driven Halloween has a New Purpose

November 1, 2013

1 Comment

Remember back when all the Purpose Driven churches began to offer alternative celebrations to Halloween?  The argument was that these events would give the church the ability to reach out to the community sharing the love and message of Christ in a way that kept kids safe, brought the family together, and took the focus […]

Is Your Church Headed to Rome?

I recently read this great article over at Possessing the Treasure and was struck by how thoroughly it assessed the current state of the American Church.  I know that often many visitors to this blog are in “browse mode” meaning they are looking for short info-bites regarding Christianity rather than long and thoughtful presentations, but […]

American Church – Without Vision & People are Perishing

September 14, 2013

6 Comments

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 […]
