Gavel and Scales of Justice

Theonomy and pacifism are rearing their heads as the United States continues its efforts to build a coalition of nations to destroy the Islamic State. Two weeks ago I offered some recommendations for Christians in how we should be responding to the threat of IS and the impending war. While my position has found consensus with most […]

A portion of my budding library

A few years ago I set up my Amazon wishlist to help me organize a desired list of books for future reading. It has been a very valuable tool in not allowing important books to get away from me, even if it might be years before I actually purchase or read them. For instance, any […]

Most people reading this blog will profess Christ as their Lord and Savior. Most may very well be true followers of Jesus Christ. But since most professing Christians in America are not true Christians – given the apostate condition and man-centered theology of American evangelicalism, coupled with the reality the average person on the street […]

Unless one has had their head in the sand in 2014, no one can deny this year has been a perilous year and the horizon isn’t looking any brighter. With all that has happened in recent months, there is no greater threat to peace and no greater manifestation of evil than the establishment and spread […]

Sinners’ Gain from Christ’s Reward

Christ’s reward is not dependent upon man or any supposed freewill decision of man. What do I mean by that? In listening to lyrics I have heard many times before, the question posed in Stuart Townsend’s ‘How Deep the Father’s Love for Us‘ – “why should I gain from His reward?” resonated with me in […]

Consider the power and majesty of Jesus Christ, even in the destruction of sinners. We read in Hebrews 1:3 that Jesus upholds “all things by the word of His power”. Whether stars or planets, lillies or lions, oceans or snow flakes, gasses or stones, angels or demons, or humans, the Lord Jesus Christ holds it […]

A few weeks ago I had the privilege to attend the 2014 Shepherd’s Conference and visit The Master’s Seminary in Los Angeles. It was one of the best weeks of my life for a number of reasons, not least of which was the blessed time of fellowship shared among the Lord’s people. New friendships were […]

What happens when you put together a couple premillennialists, a few postmillennialists, and a few others in between that theological divide? Gospel Spam. It’s the new blogging adventure beginning this week. We obviously don’t agree on a few doctrines, and likely disagree on any number of current events and issues impacting the culture, but that’s […]

Dear Presuppositionalist

The Cage Stage Presupper vs the Atheist Bad Guy

Dear Presuppositionalist, We may or may not have met before, but as a budding presuppositionalist I share your passion for presuppositionalism as I too believe this apologetic approach is most biblical and most glorifying to our great God and Savior. I also believe it is our duty to declare what God has revealed in Scripture […]
