Self examination.

May 14, 2014. Today’s post will be short and sweet, but to get anything out of it, there will have to be some work on your part. I was having a discussion today, and when we came to talk about specific doctrines and belief, one of my first go to questions is “Why? Why do…

Are we Christians?

May 11, 2014. Today we ask a hard question. It’s a question that I don’t like to ask, but one that I believe is necessary. Before we continue on, just know that today’s post is not for the casual reader who does not like conflict or questions that challenge his or her faith. If this…

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 2: Mature Unity.

April 29, 2014. If you have been following along the past few days, we are in the middle of a discussion of the book of Ephesians. Paul is writing to the church of Ephesus that is made up of both Jewish and Gentile Christians, a mixture that would seem to be causing a bit of…

A man’s word.

April 16, 2014. Today’s post will be a bit shorter but with a message that should not be taken lightly. Have you ever heard some one say “Back in my day, a man’s word actually meant something.”? Now I know that we don’t typically like to hear how our generation is just awful and how…

Lip service.

March 28, 2014. “And the Lord said: ‘Because this people draw near with their mouth and honor me with their lips, while their hearts are far from me,and their fear of me is a commandment taught by men, therefore, behold, I will againdo wonderful things with this people, with wonder upon wonder; and the wisdom…

Couplets of wisdom.

March 10, 2014. The book of Proverbs is a favorite amongst many Christians all around the world. The wisdom of Solomon is preserved through the verses penned in this book of solace (though not all of the book is by Solomon, as is a common misconception). What is interesting to me about the book is…

Approaching the word of God.

March 3, 2014. How do you read the word of God? Is it taken at face value? Do you not read it and just let others tell you what it says? Do you read a verse that seems to say something clearly, and then let a “scholar” dissuade you from believing it? What is your…

Messianic prophecy.

February 27, 2014. Tonight during small group we are going to be discussing Messianic prophecy and its use as a apologetic tool for the Christian faith. What is interesting to me is why we don’t use this tool more often. It is clear from the New Testament scriptures (particularly the book of Acts) that this…

Seemingly new revelations.

February 25, 2014. I cannot tell you how many times I have read through the opening chapter of Acts. Probably between 50-100, though that is purely a guess with no statistical backing. However, I was having a bible study with a friend today, and when we read through the first five verses, two different ideas…
