The Christian Apologetic: Jesus Christ.

March 11, 2016. Over the past few weeks, I have been writing an apologetic for a discussion with a friend in Germany. It is an apologetic that I don’t think Christian communities use as often as we should, though I could just be wrong about the prevalence of the thoughts. When we ask the question,…

Here’s to 2016.

January 1, 2016. Two years ago, I decided to start a blog. It was then that I embarked on a journey that would prove enriching, challenging and defining, as day by day would bring something new. The first year, I often didn’t know how each days thoughts would go as I just set out to write…

Acts 9: Saul’s conversion.

November 21, 2015. Note that I have decided to only do Acts 9 today, as chapters 10 and 11 shouldn’t be split up in my opinion. Thus, next week we will do Acts 10-12. Thank you for following along with me. ___________________________________ Daily Reading: Acts 9. Background: Acts 7-8. Concepts and Connections. Chapter 9 1….

James 4-5: Drawing near to God.

November 8, 2015. Daily Reading: James 4-5. Background: James 1-3. Concepts and Connections. Chapter 4 Drawing near to God: In this chapter James deals with the ever present threat of worldliness, offering practical wisdom to fight against the desires of the flesh. Notice how James doesn’t lay the blame on worldliness, however, but rather on…

I have a question for you- it’s important.

December 21, 2014. Today’s post is going to very short in words, but very deep thought. But it’s going to take effort on your part. I have a question for you, and I want to know your answer. If you are a Christian, Why do you believe in Jesus? That is your task. If someone…

Is your Christianity easy?

December 4, 2014. The alarm goes off at 6 AM Monday morning, and he drags himself out of bed to get ready for work. It would have probably been easier for him to get up had he not decided to watch half of the third season of House on Netflix last night after coming home…

The church of Christ, Part 4: New Testament Christianity.

November 25, 2014. Today as we approach the second to last part of our series on the churches of Christ, I would like to examine the true example of the New Testament church. One of the mottos amongst our fellowship is “we want to restore New Testament Christianity” or “we do bible things in bible…

The church of Christ, Part 2: Unifying Beliefs.

November 23, 2014. As we continue this series about the church of Christ, who we are, what our moment was, and who we should be, today I would like to talk about the solid principles that our movement is founded on and the essentials for Christian unity. These are the core beliefs that hold us together…

We might have missed the point.

November 1, 2014. It’s time for a paradigm shift. Few characters are more disliked by Christians today in the New Testament than the Pharisees. This stems, of course, from a generally negative depiction of this sect in the pages of scripture. The Pharisees were notorious for being the “holier-than-thou” Jews, binding heavy burdens on the people though…

What is Christianity?

July 29, 2014. There are a few fundamental philosophical questions that I think most people encounter at some point in their lives. Who am I? Why am I here? What is the purpose/meaning of life? Is this all there is? These questions have been asked time and again throughout the ages, with different peoples and…

“Trust me, beloved child.”

July 18, 2014. Lord, I come before you now as a broken and run down soul. I lay it down before you as my out come was not your goal. I lie here weary from the road paved thin and cracked. Lord, you know where I’ve been and I want to make it back. The…

Behold, the Christ.

July 12, 2014. I listened to a great sermon last night entitled “Behold the Christ” by V. P. Black that I would recommend listening too. You can find it by clicking on the link above, if you are interested. It is an older sermon in a style that you may not be accustomed to, but…
