Christian, You are a Citizen of Heaven

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 […]

Two-Kingdom Citizens: How Citizens of Heaven Ought to Live as Citizens of Earth

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 […]

Dylann Roof and the Gospel’s Advance

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 […]

Why Jesus Spoke in Parables

multitude

The doctrine of election should humble us like no other doctrine. It is evident from the following two passages that Jesus imparted life only to those to whom the Kingdom is given, as only those would have ears to hear to understand the meaning of the parables. If all the multitude would be saved, Jesus […]

God Rules Over All Civil Magistrates

There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, Mine! I really appreciate the above quote from Dutch Reformer Abraham Kuyper as it sums up Christ’s reign – over everything. It’s similar to what Dr. RC Sproul has said: […]

The Law of Nature is the Law of God

January 2, 2015

After a brief “life” interlude, we now return to the series of articles addressing the Law of God and related topics. For the Christian, God’s Law is our rule of life. By grace alone, we love God’s Law and delight in it as it burdens us not (Psalm 1:2, 119:97; Romans 7:22; 1 John 5:3). […]
