“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 […]

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 […]

I am sure you have heard the of the doctrine of the “Carnal Christian”.  It is the idea that many people come to Christ and are saved, but afterward have no evidence of repentance in their life.  Instead they continue to indulge in their favorite sins whether they be sins of raunch debauchery or more […]

How important is it to know the context of a verse when it is used in a sermon or teaching? Very important.  Really very important.  Mucho-grande really important.  Without knowing the context (that is, the verses surrounding the one given, and their meaning) of a verse or passage, you have no way of knowing whether […]

I had high hopes when I came across this article over at CNN (click HERE to read).  It is an article explaining how the majority of modern teenagers are embracing a false and unbiblical “Christianity”.  It started off great!  A study composed of over 3000 interviews with the findings that while most American youth profess […]

Warning!  Beware!  Danger ahead!! That is what should go through your mind when you hear a preacher or speaker use the phrase “for me”.  It is a red flag warning sign that the person speaking does not believe in truth, logic or God’s Word, even if they profess that they do.  Now to clarify, I […]

I read a great little article over at “Extreme Theology” today.  It is a comparison of how talented and dynamic Jesus was as speaker & leader as compared to all the CEO-type pastors running around these days.  It seems the majority of modern pastors study church growth techniques, acoustics, and the possible needs of potential […]
