2012 Reading Goals

January 3, 2012


I’ve never been much of a fan of New Year’s resolutions.  My observations and experience have been that these resolutions are futile attempts to improve one’s life whether health-wise, spiritually, socially, financially, or any number of different areas of life.  Then condemnation may set in after one misses one or two marks on their journey […]

airō Top Posts for 2011

December 28, 2011


2011 has been a great year for airō.  The Lord allowed for me to transition from blogger to WordPress, which has caused an increase in traffic for a number of reasons.  The Lord also blessed me to become a contributor for the Christian Research Network shortly after the transition.  The consequences of these changes have […]

Thin-skinned Christians and Accountability

December 13, 2011


The American church continues to give evidence of its ever-deteriorating state.  No longer can we, without rebuke, “equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12) that we might “no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of […]

Tim Tebow’s Christian Evangelism

December 9, 2011


Denver Bronco’s quarterback Tim Tebow has been in the news a whole lot lately.  Since I don’t follow the NFL very much anymore, the only thing I really know about him is what I pick up in various news stories, whether they are condemning Tebow for so actively and publicly sharing his faith, or giving […]

Make Much of Christ!

November 21, 2011


These last couple of months God has been working in me a deep desire to make much of Christ in sharing the Gospel with the lost.  While I wholeheartedly agree with the use of the Law to bring conviction of sin and a recognition of the holy wrath of God upon impenitent sinners, it seems […]

The Traits of New Creatures in Christ

October 6, 2011


In studying last night, I came across a chart in the John MacArthur Bible Commentary titled The Traits of New Creatures in Christ.  Just yesterday Manfred posted an article at Defending Contending titled, “What Is a True Christian?”, and I thought this post might be complementary to it. The first column in MacArthur’s chart concerns […]

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” – Acts 1:8 My friend and dear brother in Christ, Bobby McCreery of Athens, Georgia, shares his testimony as a street […]

Speech Seasoned with Grace

July 11, 2011


My wife, Jennifer, and I took our two children up to the neighborhood pool late yesterday afternoon to wear them out a bit before bedtime.  For some reason, Sundays are not conducive to nap times so a little time in the sun and water always does the trick.  After an hour so, I overheard two […]

Comments Off on Proclaiming the Truth to Hecklers & Encouraging Believers to Witness

These two videos from Tony Miano are very instructive. In the first video, Tony completes the reading from 1 John, calling for people to examine themselves in light of the Word of God. If one does not believe in the God of the Bible as defined by the God of the Bible, then one has […]
