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 […]Read More The Hypocrisy of Cancel Culture
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 […]Read More The Effects of Liberal Extremism
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 […]Read More The Early Church and Slavery
There is a tremendous amount of pressure on young preachers in this day and age. Success isn’t measured by faithfulness to the Word of God, but rather by how many people are in your church or how much money you collect. It seems that most people have forgotten perhaps the most important aspect of being […]Read More The Mindset of Christ
Fear. The very mention of the word causes chills through the body. We have been reintroduced to this menacing presence over the last few months, not only in the United States, but all over the world.

Over the last few years a group called the New Atheists has been gaining in popularity. This group claims to have no religion, and one of their most outspoken leaders is a man named Richard Dawkins. Dawkins has been quoted as saying that all religion is a disease and it should be eradicated. But do […]Read More The Folly of New Atheism
There are few things more annoying than someone trying to sell you something. I deal with it all the time here in Philly. I just try to go out for a walk or to grab something to eat, and I am met by people trying to sell me something. It’s bad enough in everyday life, […]Read More Peddlers or Preachers?
Wait. Be patient. These are not words that we like to hear, ESPECIALLY my generation. We want things as soon as possible, or even sooner. The problem is that we then try to take these demands into our relationship with God. Has God ever made you a promise? Has that promise been fulfilled yet? If […]Read More God’s Timing
No one has ever spoken like Jesus. Take all the great orators throughout history, and not one of them can come close to the power with which Jesus spoke. So if he is speaking then we should probably listen to what he is saying. When I see red letters in the Bible I pay close […]Read More Remember Lot’s Wife
