Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly… Psalms 1:1 Here is a quick test to examine how biblical your worldview is (or isn’t).  This is by no means a tool for exhaustive research, it is merely a small springboard from which you may choose to leap into deeper waters […]

The Christian Life – a quick thought

November 27, 2012

4 Comments

The second chapter of Galatians ends with this thought: If righteousness were through the law, then Christ died for no purpose. Jesus taught us that a summary of the law is that we are to “love God and love others”, and here in Galatians we learn that even if we go out and do this […]

Does Your Life Include True Repentance?

November 14, 2012

In Luke 24, Jesus directed His people to spread the message of  “repentance and the forgiveness of sins” in his name.  Recently, we looked at what the word “repent” actually means, but what does true repentance look like when lived out in the life of a believer?  To answer this question, I encourage you to visit Vassal […]

Are you a “Positive Christian”?

September 27, 2012

4 Comments

“Adherents of ‘Positive Christianity’ argued that traditional Christianity emphasized the passive rather than the active aspects of Christ’s life, stressing his miraculous birth, his suffering, his sacrifice on the cross and other-worldly redemption. They wanted to replace this doctrine with a “positive” emphasis on Christ as an active preacher, organizer and fighter who opposed the […]

Slow it Down There, Christian!!

Are you a “skimmer”?  The type of online reader who selectively browses an article or post for the highlights to get the basic thrust of an article, and then quickly moves on?  Stop it!!  I find myself doing the same thing, but it isn’t healthy.  Whether it’s fast, highlight- (you just stopped paying attention, didn’t […]

Are American Evangelicals an “Unreached People Group”?

August 6, 2012

0 Comments

I know it may sound amazing, but I think I have discovered a new tribal target for brave missionaries!  For a while now I have wondered if professing American Christians know what Christianity actually is according to the Bible.  Have they ever even heard the true Gospel message?  It seems as though most churchgoing folk […]

Does God Promise to Reward Tithing?

May 9, 2012

1 Comment

Great video here about the common message on tithing.  I highly doubt the message this preacher brings will be unfamiliar to those who watch this video as it is a common staple in today’s evangelical culture.  But is it biblical and applicable to those in the New Covenant ushered in by Jesus’ death on the […]

THEREFORE – MP3 Audio Sermon

September 19, 2011

0 Comments

Funny how when reading the Bible, we can skip over common words that have significant meaning as though they weren’t even there.  The meaning behind the word, “therefore” in Romans 12:1-2 has a profound impact on what the passage is saying.  This chapter (and all of the final chapters in Romans) can’t be plucked out […]

ChurchSalt Challenge… Time Travel!

July 4, 2011

Many science fiction novels & movie scripts have been written on the subject of time travel.  It is probably what would be called in the entertainment world an “overworked idea”.  But please indulge me for a moment as I try to pen a Christian and Biblical view of the subject.  Time travel is good.  Really […]

This latest sermon is an extremely short but pointed look into a topic covered in a blog-post not too long ago (read post Here).  If someone asked you right now, “Is Jesus on your side?”  How would you answer?  Do you feel as though He is your support and has your back in all you […]

Christmas Afterthought

December 28, 2010

I know Christmas is over and we bloggers should be moving on to posts regarding the coming new year, but I guess I am feeling the need to cast one more stone behind me.  My wife and I don’t do the “Santa Claus” thing with our kids and we have recently heard of several local […]
