No, I am not referring to politics.  I’m not even referring to “liberal” or “conservative” preachers and teachers within the professing church.  I am referring to the Bible.  And what I am talking about, or who actually, is Jesus.  Jesus isn’t found just on the right side of your Bible (the New Testament), He is […]

From time to time, I try to point others to a particular ministry or resource that I have found to be true to the Word, which is what the “Spotlight On…” series is all about.  This time, I thought I might point y’all to a list of podcasts that, in my opinion, are worthy of […]

WOW! A Must Listen for Every SBC Pastor…

May 18, 2012

I’m not quite sure how to describe this teaching other than to say it is one of the most eye-opening (and frightening) talks I’ve heard in quite some time.  It is a history of the seeker-friendly and Purpose Driven movements.  When I say “history”, that is exactly what I mean.  Sources are quoted, reference material […]

Rob Bell has released his latest book, “Love Wins” and I expect it will be one of the more popular books (concerning Christianity) of the year.  The problem is, no matter how hard he tries to camouflage his teachings as being Christian, they are obviously not!  I know this sounds harsh, but if you are […]

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 […]

Click HERE to listen to a terrific interview with Doug Pagitt describing the beginnings of the Emergent Church movement.  Like so many things, once you know how something started, and why,  it becomes much easier to understand how and why operations are carried out today.  Whether you are of Emergent persuasion, are trying to combat Emergent doctrine, you should listen to this […]

The Christian Jellyfish floating in Church Waters

It seems as though a strange disease is creeping over the some of the Christian populace.  I have seen Godly men, men with a sound understanding of salvation, men who have submitted their lives to Christ, and follow hard after Him with passion, sitting silent when they should be standing.  Let me explain the situation.  […]

Law & Gospel Parenting

 The Law drives us to God through showing us our sins and the hopelessness of earning salvation.  The Gospel is the good news that the just God who will judge us all has sent His Son to pay the penalty for our breaking of the Law.  This is message at the heart of every good […]
