Two Kingdoms


“Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” This simple phrase is part of one of the most famous prayers in the entire Bible. We call it “The Lord’s Prayer”, but in reality it is a model prayer that the Lord taught his disciples. The reality is that most […]

Social Justice


Uh-oh. You can probably already tell from the title that I am going to stir the pot a little bit. That’s ok. Topics like social justice should be based on the premise that we can have a rational conversation. After all, I keep hearing that we need to have a conversation about it, so let’s […]

A Word For My Generation


There are few discourses in the scripture that are as powerful as Paul’s discourse on Mars’ Hill in Acts 17. Contrary to popular belief, Mars’ Hill was not simply a pagan shrine. In reality, it was a kind of court room. It’s very likely that Paul’s discourse was a defense at his trial, which makes […]

Christian Character: Love


“A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho…” Thus begins what is probably the most famous parable in the entire ministry of Jesus. The Parable of the Good Samaritan teaches us so many things, but above everything else it teaches us what love really looks like. It teaches us that how you treat your […]

Christian Character: Self-Sacrifice


Genesis 44 contains a story that every Christian should read and apply. I know. We typically don’t look at Old Testament stories as examples of Christian character, and for good reason.

The Hypocrisy of Cancel Culture


There is a new phenomenon that is taking place in our nation known as “cancel culture.” It seems that the point of this type of thinking is to remove or “cancel” any person or business that does not line up with one’s values.  This is a tactic by those on the far left to eliminate […]

The Effects of Liberal Extremism


Let me be clear from the very beginning.  Political extremism is wrong, whether conservative or liberal.  I do not advocate for any form of extremism at all, because the scriptures teach us to be temperate in all things (1 Corinthians 9:25) if we want to obtain “an incorruptible crown.”  One of the basic foundations of […]

The Early Church and Slavery


I just want to say right off the top that I know this is a sensitive topic for a lot of people.  However, it’s also a topic that has been distorted by atheists and others who would seek to damage the credibility of the Bible.  The reality is that some subjects are difficult, but they […]
