Jonah, Part 2: 4 Lessons.

December 18, 2014. Yesterday I began a series on the the story of Jonah as inspired by a podcast series I listened to on the way down to Chattanooga. Today I would like to continue the series by discussing four different lessons that I think we can pull from the book of Jonah and apply…

What sermons have you been preaching lately?

November 16, 2014. I read a short article this morning (I know, surprise surprise) that put something in perspective for me. The article was about reasons we don’t do all that well retaining visitors when they give Christianity a chance. The author made some valid points, but the one that stood out to me the…

Speak, for the time is near.

September 9, 2014. “But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power.“(II Timothy 3:1-5b)…

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…

To debate or not to debate.

April 4, 2014. Tonight I attended a debate between Kyle Butt and Dr. Bart Ehrman on the topic of “the pain and sorrow in the world indicate that the Christian God does not exist.” I enjoyed the debate for the most part and I think some interesting points we’re brought up and refuted. I’m on…

The great commission.

March 24, 2014. I am happy to say that we have another brother in Christ! My friend Daniel Chen was baptized into Christ yesterday after he went with a group to see God is not Dead. It must have been some movie. The gospel is working here in Chattanooga, and I am excited to be…

Teaching the taught.

February 28, 2014. Today I am interviewing for a position in the Quantitative and Chemical Biology program for a Ph. D. at Vanderbilt. So far I believe it is going pretty well. What I have noticed, dawning on me at lunch, is how different of an environment it is from the student center. Don’t get…
