"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

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. ...
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
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...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
