In an all-too-common scene now in America, a peaceful protest turned violent in our Nation’s Capitol last week....Keep Reading

"Convictions, Courage, & COVID" is a podcast series intended to help CBC members and others listening think through theological and ecclesiological matters that are crucial to helping Christians make wise, Biblical choices in the midst of circumstances that challenge in-person gathering (such as COVID-19)....
“Behold I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with Me” (Revelation 3:20). This has always been one of the most disturbing verses in the Bible to me. It disturbs me for three main reasons. ...

"You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, the Lord God is an everlasting Rock" (Isaiah 26:3-4). Brothers and Sisters in Christ, don't we need this good reminder from our God right now? Presidential elections are settled in heaven. The winner is ordained of God, who is the Only Sovereign King over a...Keep Reading
Well, it's Election Eve. Who knows when we will actually know the winner? One thing I am sure of, Jesus Christ always wins. Regardless of the outcome of our elections (important though they may be), King Jesus' throne is forever secure. And Jesus will continue to build His Church regardless of what kind of political or demonic forces oppose her (Matthew 16:18). But ther...Keep Reading
"I will flat out change the law." That's how former Vice-President Joe Biden answered a question regarding transgenderism among elementary aged-children at a recent town hall. The obvious ignorance of the US Constitution aside (Presidents cannot change laws), Biden believes 8 year olds should be encouraged to make permanently life-altering and physically damaging deci...Keep Reading
Amy Coney Barrett's ongoing confirmation hearing in the US Senate highlights the criticality of Presidential elections. Indeed, many conservative Christians voted for Donald Trump in 2016 based almost entirely on this issue the appointment of Supreme Court Justices and judges all across this land. For the past four decades, the phrase "Judicial Tyranny" has come to the f...Keep Reading
Could there be a more volatile time for a presidential election in our nation? I am forever thankful my hope is not in this world! And yet, I may not as a follower of Christ, shirk my responsibilities in this world. And you may not, either, dear Christian. We must shine as lights in this crooked and perverse world and hold out the word of life (Phil 2:14-16). We must seek...Keep Reading
"Be still and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations. I will be exalted in the earth" (Psalm 46:10). It's been a really noisy year so far. It's bound to get even louder in the next few months. So many voices. So many tweets. So many FB posts. So many debates. So many non-stop "breaking news" casts. So many protests. So many riots. And in the midst o...Keep Reading
As a native Kentuckian, with a Wildcat love and Bluegrass in my veins, I never thought I would hear myself say, "I am so glad to live in the Hoosier State!" But say it I have. Repeatedly. For several months now. Our part of Indiana has been quite sheltered from much of the virus madness. My back porch looking out over my garden and the woods behind it, is a long way from...Keep Reading
For over 50 years, Pastor John MacArthur has heralded the gospel of salvation for sinners by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, to the glory of God alone! And he has done so because, like the Reformers who pre-dated him by 500 years, he believes in the absolute authority of Scripture alone. And now, under the tyranny of Governor Gavin Newsom, our brother i...Keep Reading
"And He is the head of the body, the church" (Colossians 1:18). The last three weeks of preaching have been sheer ecstasy for me! We circled our theological and devotional wagons around Colossians 1:15-20. Any Christian who is not immensely and deeply blessed by drinking up this high Christology may not actually be a Christian. If God the Father's eternal purpose is t...Keep Reading
In the previous two posts, I have argued that the agenda and worldview of Black Lives Matter is not biblical. It is anti-Bible and anti-gospel. This is because it is based on Critical Theory, or Critical Race Theory. The underlying assumptions of CRT ought to disturb any Bible-believing Christian, regardless of skin color. For a quick overview take a listen: https://www.y...Keep Reading
"Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds. They are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart. They have become callous and have given themselves up to sensuality, greedy to practice every kind of im...Keep Reading
"If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?" (Psalm 11:3) What started as a fringe movement among the politically socialist-with-a-tinge-of-anarchist crowd in America, has almost overnight become "mainstream." The movement is known as BLM, Black Lives Matter. To which nearly every American I know or even know of would answer, "Of course the lives of...Keep Reading
Our nation is in chaos. It appears a "perfect storm" is upon us. So many hurts and calamities combining to create mass confusion, extreme emotionalism, knee-jerk calls to action, and even greater hatred and division. A pandemic. Government abuses of power. Then a very public murder. Then another murder. Then more murders, riots, looting. All the while a "mega drought" plag...Keep Reading
Like millions around this nation and globe, I have watched a virus reign terror down upon us. Or, is it our governments and medical professionals reigning terror down upon us? Or is it both? I am not a doctor or medical professional. I have no idea how best to battle a pandemic, at least not from a medical perspective. But I also have read enough to know that doctors arou...Keep Reading
The Supreme Court is hearing a pivotal case to determine whether to uphold Louisiana's law requiring abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. This is, of course, a reasonable safeguard to both the health of the mother, as well as the health of the baby if born alive (and yes we are now learning that happens more often then we might imagine). But ...Keep Reading
Let me tell you where Mayor Pete Buttigieg is not today. He is not at the burial ceremony for 2,411 aborted babies. That ceremony is being held in his city, South Bend, IN. But I feel sure he's not planning to attend. His radical pro-choice agenda simply could not stand up to the actual reality of tiny babies with faces, arms, fingers, ears, toes, brains, legs, hearts. Ma...Keep Reading
By now the dust is somewhat settling on Chick-Fil-A's decision to stop donating to the Salvation Army and Fellowship of Christian Athletes. This was, apparently, due to certain corporate leaders' desire to pander more to the PC demographic regarding so-called Gay Marriage. This is no longer Truett Cathy's Chick-Fil-A. But I assure every Christian in America, this "dust" s...Keep Reading
The problems in the K-12 (not to mention the university system) system are really too numerous to even tackle now for Bible-believing pastors. Planned Parenthood runs the "sex education." GLSEN gets a nod to infiltrate every level of the system, meaning our 1st graders are being routinely exposed to the agenda of those who promote sexual sins and self-rule as normal and ac...Keep Reading
Earlier this week, the US Senate was unable to pass straight-forward legislation that would have ensured any babies born alive during abortion attempts receive standard medical care. Every Democrat except three voted "no." So, let's be very clear. These Senators, elected to one of the highest and most noble offices in our great Nation, voted to allow a doctor, and nurses,...Keep Reading
A single witness shall not suffice against a person for any crime or for any wrong in connection with any offense that he has committed. Only on the evidence of two witnesses or of three witnesses shall a charge be established . . . and if the witness is a false witness and has accused his brother falsely, then you shall do to him as he had meant to do to his brother. So...Keep Reading
What comes out of a person is what defiles him. For from within, our of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these things come from within, and they defile a person (Mark 7:21-23). The flags of our nation are once again at half staff as we mour...Keep Reading
