4 Lessons from the story of Naaman and Elisha.

October 21, 2014. “Naaman, commander of the army of the king of Syria, was a great man with his master and in high favor, because by him the Lord had given victory to Syria. He was a mighty man of valor, but he was a leper. Now the Syrians on one of their raids had carried off a little girl…

3 Interesting ideas about the Bible.

September 25, 2014. From time to time I find it very interesting to take a step back out of the details of the scripture and stand in amazement of the bible as a whole. One apologetic tool I use to relate to people that the bible is the inspired word of God is the bible…

3 lessons from one man’s mistakes.

September 18, 2014. Some time ago, there lived a man who was something of a prodigy. His mother and father feared God and brought him up to know the Lord. You might say that he had a closer connection with God than most of us, at least in appearance, for he had taken a vow…

Lessons from the man of God from Judah.

September 10, 2014. There is an interesting story found in I Kings 13 that I would say is relatively unknown in Christian thought today as it is a short story that is not focused on very often. It was this story that cut me down to size when I was younger; I was sure that…

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…

4 Reasons Christians need the Old Testament.

July 17, 2014. “For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.” (Romans 15:4) I was having a conversation with a dear friend of mine the other day and the question came up of whether or not it…

Two teachings from Galatians five.

June 26, 2014. “Look: I, Paul, say to you that if you accept circumcision, Christ will be of no advantage to you. I testify again to every man who accepts circumcision that he is obligated to keep the whole law. You are severed from Christ, you who would be justified by the law; you have…

The maturation of mankind.

June 22, 2014. “Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away. When I was a child, I spoke like a…

The Old Testament.

May 31, 2014. Yesterday I finished reading through the Old Testament in my second journey through the bible. I honestly didn’t appreciate the Old Testament until the first time I read through the bible. Now that I have, I absolutely love it. It really puts Christianity in perspective. It reveals the character of God and…

Biblical prophecy.

May 7, 2014. “And we have the prophetic word more fully confirmed, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts, knowing this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture comes from someone’s…

A new way.

May 2, 2014. If you have chosen the path of Christianity, you have faith that Jesus Christ is the son of God and have been baptized into him, do you ever feel like you are being pulled back into your former life? Do you ever fall back into the sins that you committed before you…

Ephesians Part 1: Jews and Gentiles.

April 28, 2014. Today we will discuss what I see as the fist section of Ephesians, the first three chapters. Remembering what we discussed yesterday, the central theme of the epistle seems to be unity. The first three chapters deals heavily with the unity between the Jews and Gentiles. Before Christ, there was two distinct…
