Update on One Unnoticed Life

The Story of Jenner of George Street. I wanted to use the video I inserted in my last post in my sermon this morning, so I did some additional research just to satisfy myself that all the facts of the story are indeed correct. Here’s what I found out … 1. The story is indeed […]

The Few

  Psalm 8:4 “What is man that You are mindful of him?”   David, with even the limited information about the universe that he could observe, was overwhelmed by the immensity of the Creator who stands transcendentally outside of it all as it’s Designer and Sustainer. Today we have so much more understanding of that […]

Romans 3

In the last few posts I’ve written about our urgent need to return to preaching the law of God. (Scroll down to read them). For most of the church’s 2000 year history this was the accepted norm for gospel preaching. Today, however, it seems such a radical idea that one has to defend it. Well, […]

The Perfect Law of God

In today’s church, the mere mention of the preaching of “law” incites looks of disdain and suspicion. Ever heard Christians say something like this? … “Surely to preach law makes you a legalist, and doesn’t the Bible teach against that?” “The law is Old Testament, and now that Jesus has come all of that has […]

Wisdom From Some Guys the Church Loves

These are surely famous Christians. Admiring them and eulogizing them is a poor replacement for listening to them and learning from them! “Evermore the Law must prepare the way for the gospel. To overlook this in instructing souls is almost certain to result in false hope, the introduction of a false standard of Christian experience, […]

The "R" Word

Here are the scandalous observable facts: 80-90% of people who are recorded as making “a decision for Christ” in today’s Evangelical churches do not go on to committed discipleship. They are lost to the faith within a very short time, many of them immediately. These people will generally be harder to reach again in the […]

The Peril of Loving Men’s Praise

What a tragic verse of Scripture! John 12:42-43, “Nevertheless even among the rulers many believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue; for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.” These men came to believe in […]

I’ll Take a Resurrection Please!

While there is still life people believe that God can yet heal, preserve, save. Once death has come, however, everyone sees it as too late. But Jesus declares, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.” (John 11:25)   Jesus had been called to […]

"It Will Be Better For You if I Go"

Can you imagine the disciples faces when they heard those words? John 16:7. Jesus said, “Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you.” This […]

What’s In a Name?

I came up with so many different names for this blog. Some were too cryptic, some were too boring, some sounded high-falutin’, and some were just plain lame. In the end I asked myself “What am I all about?” The answer to that question took about 3 seconds. God has brought me to the place […]
