Reforming the Church

I recently read an article by Tish Harrison Warren, published in Christianity Today.  Warren says, “There have always been reformers in the church, and we did not call them deconstructors.  This is not merely semantics.  To call something to reform (as opposed to simply destroying it) is to implicitly recognize the integrity of its original…

Heaven & Hell

I have just recently released my new book entitled “Heaven and Hell, a biblical perspective of the life to come.”  I do encourage you to get it.  But why write such a book?  Let me suggest 5 reasons. 1) We have now gone through the period of about a generation where the themes of heaven…

The Power of Influence

Years ago, I was given the best definition of leadership I have heard. “Leadership is influence.” That is to say, it is not a position or a title. Nor is it necessarily the power to enact the rules, contracts or legislation we want. Of course, the latter is a form of leadership. God grants governments…

Christianity Collapse?

Ed Stetzer is the president of LifeWay Research.  He recently responded to a study from the Pew Research Center, indicating that American Christianity is in severe decline.  Stetzer’s response was that the headlines are inaccurate.  Instead of finding that Christianity was in decline in America, Stetzer argued that nominal Christianity was in decline.  In order…

The Fight for The Sufficiency of Scripture

As you know, our ministry is called, “Back to the Bible”. We are a Bible centered teaching ministry. We endeavor to teach the Bible expositionally.

Suffering – Remember these 3 Things!

Just a few days ago, my wife and I received an email from a dear sister in Christ.  A tragedy had befallen her family, and she was asking for prayers.  But in the process of asking for prayer, she described her confidence and faith in the kind providence of God.  I was brought to tears.…

The Gospel and Sin

It was back in the early 1970’s, that the then famous Psychiatrist, Karl Menninger wrote a remarkable book.  It was entitled, “Whatever Became of Sin”.  In many ways, what Dr. Menninger spoke about then, seems as if it could have been written yesterday. Menninger stated that our society has shifted sin from the individual to…

Evangelism and Living at Peace with All People

I recently saw an article in “Christianity Today” entitled, “Christians and Muslim Leaders Agree on Legitimacy of Evangelism.”  I was intrigued.  The article began with the statement, “The world’s largest Muslim organization accepts that Christians will try to convert its members.  A new partnership with evangelicals seeks to ensure this does not lead to conflict.”…

Enemies

Jesus taught us to love our enemies. But sometimes, the Psalms seem to teach the opposite. What are we to make of this? Psalms 1-41 is called Book One in the Psalms. All but 3 of these 41 Psalms are said to be authored by David. Most likely, it was David himself who not only…
