Are Christians to “Seize the Vision”?

October 3, 2010

0 Comments

Here is a terrific article from the pages of Apprising Ministries regarding the all-too-common modern message of “grasping your vision” or “chasing the dream”.  I personally have heard this message in more churches than I care to remember.  It is the exciting, upbeat “don’t live a boring life, life is an adventure” message… you know […]

the HUGE importance of Context

September 15, 2010

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 […]

The Natural Destination of Modern “Christianity”

September 12, 2010

The modern message in the vast majority of pulpits is this, “Love God and love others, live right and stop messing up.”  It is a message of, “Just do more of what you know you should do.”  Jesus Christ is often mixed in as filling some sort of supporting role, whether it be as an […]

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, […]

If I could write a book…

If you were to browse my bookshelf, it would quickly become evident that I like to read theology books written by dead guys.  That is, the vast majority of authors on my shelves have been dead for hundreds of years.  I find modern authors to be tainted by a sensual culture that influences their worldview, […]

The Doctrine of Frog Evangelism

Riddle me this: Five frogs are sitting on a log.  Three of them decide to jump off.  How many frogs are left on the log?? I was never very good at story problems in school, nor at riddles, for that matter.  But the answer to this one seems pretty straight-forward.  The obvious answer is two.  […]

What is “…for me”?

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 […]

Finger Pointing

For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.  2 Timothy 4:3-4 We are taught in Scripture to contend earnestly for the faith, […]

Preaching for an Immoral Bride

Exactly how valid is the modern-day message of  “You need to ask Jesus into your heart”?  If you are a modern-day Christian in America, it is very possible that you believe this message to be the Gospel.  That we are to ask Jesus into our hearts, attend Church, and try to be good people with God helping us […]

WOW! Piper out-thinks Scripture…

Rick Warren has proven time and time again that he is interested in growing the Church into a large corporation-type organization rather than follow the structure outlined in Scripture.  He has repeatedly stated that he “does Church” for unbelievers, despite the crystal clear teaching that the Church is actually the body of Christ, that being […]

Purpose Driven eye-opener

March 24, 2010

It seems as though Rick Warren’s “Purpose Driven” movement has swept into many, many U.S. churches.  Because of its’ ever increasing popularity, do you think it would be a good idea to take a look into the foundational principles to see if they are Biblical?  I think it would be wise, and apparently, so does […]
