September Silence

kristina-flour-185592-unsplash-compressor

"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...

Of Meteors, Ice Ages, and the Global Flood

Geology was my second love in college. I was one course away from a minor in geology, but couldn't find a way to make it fit in my hectic 18 hour a semester schedule driven by my Naval ROTC requirements. In hindsight, it was a grace. After all, who wants to be a professional rock licker? I arrived at Vanderbilt University with a God-given faith in the Lord Jesus Christ an...

Crazy California

california-1024x768

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...

A Prayer For Pastor John Macarthur

John_F._MacArthur_Jr..JPG

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...

King COVID or King Jesus?

"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...

The New Gospel of BLM and CRT

Critical-Race-Theory

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...

The Agenda of Black Lives Matter

blacklivesmatter-1

"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...

Black Lives Matter...But Why?

blacklivesmatter-1

"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...

A Prayer for our Nation

14211.lg

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...

COVID-19 and ROMANS 14

Screen-Shot-2020-05-07-at-9.42.42-AM-1024x629(pp_w900_h552)

We are changed. All of us. Changed. You might think I am referring to the miracle of the new birth in Christ Jesus. And indeed, every Christian has been and is being and shall be changed! But I am actually referring to the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had upon us. It has changed us. Some more than others. But changed we are, every single one of us. In some ways, for g...
