Ligonier Ministries conducts a fairly extensive survey every two years to find out the general beliefs held by those who identify as evangelical Christians.  This past year’s results […]

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?  […]

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9 Notice anything interesting in the verse above?  It doesn’t say He is faithful and merciful, it says He is faithful and just.  How can a just God forgive us of […]

Have You Met The Grey god?

You may think that the Grey god is a facet of modern theology that is found only in the liberal-leaning churches, but I submit to you that this view has crept into almost all modern churches in some form or another, especially in the youth programs. But I am getting ahead of myself.  Let me […]

New Audio Sermon – John 3:16

What verse in Scripture could be more often quoted and publicized than John 3:16?  None.  It is everywhere.  Football games, baseball games, soccer games and in every gospel tract ever printed.  Now in my reasoning, if a verse is used THAT much, it should be examined carefully to understand the full meaning!  This sermon is […]

Remember “The Jesus Seminar”?  If you recall, they were the fine folks who decided to look over the Gospels, and decide (by voting) which parts were authentic and which parts were probably false.  Of course, the first thing to go was miracles and any evidence of divinity.  Why? Because “knowing” Jesus was just a man, […]

Baptized or Inoculated? This is a hard message.  Please study this subject for yourself in the Scripture and pray on it before allowing yourself to be offended or casually dismissing it. I recently attended a Baptism service at a local Church that profoundly disturbed me.  Immediately before someone descended into the water to be baptized, […]
