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 […]

Theology matters.  I know, I know, just the word “theology” sounds boring, right?  It makes us think of bearded old men in libraries who obviously don’t have enough energy and zest to go live their faith so they sit around a table in outdated suits and vests just talking about it.  But let me shock […]

September 14, 2013

One of the things I have noticed the last few years is that here in the Bible Belt of the U.S. more and more pastors are using creativity and imagination in their sermons.  Not in the good way, which might be creative illustrations and new innovative methods of delivering the Gospel message.  No, the creativity […]

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 […]

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 […]

For those of you who learned a lot of your biblical truth through creeds and catechism, you probably remember this question and it’s answer: Q. What is the chief end of man? A. Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him for ever. Recently, TableTalk magazine contributor Harry Reeder had this to […]

I read this great article today over at World View Weekend regarding Rick Warren and the Reformed Christian faith.  This entire subject reminds me of Luke 16:8 “For the sons of this world are more shrewd in dealing with their own generation than the sons of light” It is absolutely amazing to me that so […]

I read an article regarding John Piper over at the Crosstalk blog today that brought about profound sadness.  I don’t think I can add much to the article, so I will simply provide a link to it (see below) and let you read it for yourself.  The one thing I will add is to pose […]
