God has ordained government as the earthly authority with the power of the sword (Rom 13:1-7). Governments are all accountable to the King of kings for how they rule (Dan 4; Rev 18). Governments are beholden to God’s Word to discern good from evil. The Bible is replete, however, with examples of earthly rulers and governments who refused to stay in their lane....
At one of the most divisive political times in our nation’s history, Speaker Nancy Pelosi knows how to bring her party together. The deceptively named “Women’s Health Protection Act” seeks to wipe out all the various pro-life laws passed by the states, and permanently legalize abortion on demand, for any reasons whatsoever, right up until birth....
I recently read this blog post by Dr. Chuck Lawless. While I certainly cannot improve upon the 10 Questions given to us by Dr. Lawless, I want to come at it from a slightly different angle. Tom Ascol of Founders Ministries has often said that Christians should find a healthy New Testament Church then build their lives around it. I heartily concur. ...
In this series, I have endeavored to share some observations and critiques of the SBC21, which gathered last month in Nashville. I focused the first two posts on Resolutions. While Resolutions are not binding in the SBC, which believes strongly in local church autonomy, they are an important glimpse into the hearts and minds of SBC leaders. And Resolutions are seen by the secular press as the way to know what churches in the SBC think, believe, and find worthy of acting upon in our culture...I turn my attention now to the election of the President of the SBC. ...
In this series of blog posts, I want to offer my thoughts and analysis on the recent Southern Baptist Convention held in Nashville, TN on June 15-16, 2021. I do so, as with all my blogs, primarily as a service to the local church I love and serve, Corydon Baptist Church. ...
“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. ...Keep Reading
Dear Linda J. Lucas, February 6th is generally a sad day in our home. That's the day our Savior called you to His side. Your baby girl, Michele, was 10 years old. So close to embarking upon her journey into young womanhood. Although I know you are with the Lord where there are "pleasures forevermore" (Ps 16:11), I also know that way back then, the thought of leaving your ...Keep Reading

"If you ask anything in My name, I will do it" (John 14:14). While I want to guard against any notion of name-it-claim-it theology, and I renounce any doctrine that says we can manipulate God Almighty by our prayers, I do think two prayers said recently in Legislative Chambers speak volumes about the division in our Nation. There really are two visions for the United ...Keep Reading

Christmas Season speaks often of peace. I mean, after all, the angels announced to the shepherds, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men" (KJV). Even if you prefer another translation, such as the ESV (which I do), the note of peace is still there: "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom He is pleased." Peace...Keep Reading
