Dylann Roof and the Gospel’s Advance

June 21, 2015

2

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

March 18, 2015

8

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 […]

Thomas Schreiner on Theonomy

September 25, 2014

The last article on the subject of God’s Law served to be an introductory article to the series, providing a list of resources examining the manifestation of God’s Law under the Old and New Covenants. The primary purpose of this series is to study the definition and application of God’s Law for the Christian under […]

The Law of God, Theonomy, and Pacifism

September 9, 2014

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 […]

The Islamic State (IS) vs the United States and what American Christians should be doing

August 21, 2014

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 […]

Gospel Spam: A New Blogging Adventure

February 11, 2014

Comments Off on Gospel Spam: A New Blogging Adventure

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 […]

January 16, 2014

I just read a story and watched a video provided by the Christian Post about a 28 year old school teacher, Alicia Gray, who “plead guilty to charges of second-degree sodomy, second-degree sexual abuse and being a school employee who has had sexual contact with a student younger than 19, after she was charged last […]

Comments Off on Exemplary Spiritual Leadership

Just completed 144 pages of wisdom in Pastor Jerry Wragg’s work, Exemplary Spiritual Leadership: Facing the Challenges, Escaping the Dangers. While beneficial for any Christian, it should be required reading for aspiring and established leaders desiring to be more godly in their leadership of God’s people. Here is the summary conclusion of the book (p. […]

Christopher Dorner Burned Alive, Eternally Burning?

February 13, 2013

7

I have been contemplating how Christopher Dorner, if it is true that he died, experienced his last moments on earth. If he was burned alive as headlines suggest, how terrible it would have been for him to suffer the torments of a furnace of fire. I don’t know what it feels like to be trapped […]

Addressing Arguments to Vote for Mitt Romney

September 11, 2012

Let me begin by saying that I have dear brothers and sisters in Christ who will be voting for Mitt Romney on November 6. This series is not at all to cause division among myself and them, nor is it meant to cause division among any of you who are reading this post. This series […]
