Christian Voices of Authority

October 22, 2015

 So have you been following the politics and back-door scheming currently going on in the Roman Catholic Church lately?  Myself, I haven’t been keeping real close tabs on it all, but the general movement of what’s going on has been of some interest to me simply because it has so much to do with theological […]

NewsFlash – Judging

August 11, 2015

0 Comments

Short post today, Please read the following (please note that it’s a passage of Scripture, from the same collection of Scripture where we find John 3:16 and the statement “God is love”): “For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge?” If your […]

The Upcoming Easter Holi Sermon

Maybe I’m way out in left field on this (it’s happened before) but I have that “I’m about to see a train-wreck” feeling creeping over me.  It’s Spring time again, the time of year when we get to see the pageantry of the modern religious culture on full display.  Pastel colors will decorate our churches, celebration themes of new […]

Rebellion (and Thor) Will Find a Way!

February 4, 2015

In the “you can’t make this stuff up” file I recently came across an interesting article.  It seems as though a new temple is being built to worship the Norse pagan gods.  You know, Thor, Odin and all the rest?  Not too long ago Marvel comics started using some of these figures in their super-hero movies, but folks in […]

“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 […]

It seems the news is getting more and more interesting – in a bad way – as time goes on.  Take a look at a few recent articles and see if you notice anything they have in common.  Be careful as you read these – some of them might shock you! Christian decides if following God can be lived […]

Purpose Driven Halloween has a New Purpose

November 1, 2013

1 Comment

Remember back when all the Purpose Driven churches began to offer alternative celebrations to Halloween?  The argument was that these events would give the church the ability to reach out to the community sharing the love and message of Christ in a way that kept kids safe, brought the family together, and took the focus […]

Is Your Church Headed to Rome?

I recently read this great article over at Possessing the Treasure and was struck by how thoroughly it assessed the current state of the American Church.  I know that often many visitors to this blog are in “browse mode” meaning they are looking for short info-bites regarding Christianity rather than long and thoughtful presentations, but […]

Church of Tares

Do you watch television several hours a week?  How about giving up just two of those & instead watch something that will educate you as to the truth of the modern church in America and the West.  I strongly encourage you to watch this with an open mind, prayerful heart, and (of course) a Bible so you can […]

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 […]

WOW! A Must Listen for Every SBC Pastor…

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 […]
