I was asked to guest blog over at The Good Light Project on the topic of sexual immorality.  Here it is in 400 words: Enter Heaven Maimed

On Tongues Subsequent to Conversion

On speaking in tongues, Acts 10:44-48 states the Holy Spirit fell upon the Gentiles upon hearing the Word of God preached by Peter. That the Gentiles were speaking in tongues was the immediate evidence to the Jews that God had given the Gentiles the same gift of the Spirit as He had the Jews. It […]

Christian, You are the Salt of the Earth

July 6, 2015

Not only are Christians pilgrims in a foreign land and citizens of heaven, but we are the salt of the earth. Our Lord tells His disciples in Matthew 5:13: You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to […]

Christian, not only are you a pilgrim residing in a foreign land (the common kingdom), but you are a citizen of heaven. Jesus tells us His kingdom is not of this world (John 18:36) – we are citizens of that kingdom, and that kingdom is not on this earth except in the hearts of God’s people. After calling out […]

Christian, You are a Pilgrim

There is an unbiblical idea that America is or was a Christian nation. There is no such thing, never has been and never will be. The idea of a “Christian nation” or establishing one through any supposed dominion mandate goes against every biblical reference of God’s people being pilgrims. If such a nation existed, we […]

Having addressed theonomy (here and here), the Law of God, God’s rule over civil magistrates, and the Christian’s obligation to humbly submit to authority, we’ll now take a look at the Christian’s role in the culture, which could not be more essential to understand given the nations’ drunkenness with Babylon’s immorality. It is difficult to […]

Little did Dylann Roof know that his actions would cause the Gospel to advance. Just think about how much we are hearing the Gospel and Christ’s offer of forgiveness through the media as a result of his actions. When Christians are persecuted, Jesus is made known, and it’s all part of His sovereign plan. Paul […]

Jesus, Friend of Starbucks Baristas and Patrons

Breitbart dropped an article yesterday revealing how Starbucks baristas will “hassle” customers about race relations. The right-wing conservative in me wanted to jump on board the train of derision toward Starbucks for yet another publicity stunt in the politico-culture wars. However, I’m learning to beat down that unwelcomed part of my flesh – you know, the […]

Christian Submission vs Belligerent Discontentment Before Civil Authorities

My heart is grieved by the growing discontentment, hostility, and anarchist attitudes by those who profess the name of Jesus Christ in America. As our nation grows more hostile, American Christians must grow more patient, longsuffering, merciful, and compassionate. As American culture grows more belligerent, we must grow more eager to speak the truth in […]
