I always try to interpret the Bible as accurately and consistently as I can. Good exegesis and hermeneutics of the Scriptural texts is always my first goal. When history or science invariably disagrees with what the Bible says, I first off pause, and double check the Bible. Was I just always taught something that wasn’t … More Young Earth but Old Universe?
For some reason we have developed levels or ranks in Christianity. I’m not sure when this started, but it certainly wasn’t in the first century. I think I’ve accurately identified the different level Christians that exist: New Believer Church Goer Church Member Ministry Helper Ministry Leader Deacon Elder Senior Pastor Missionary New Tribes Missionary Again, … More The Great Commission IS Christianity
Oscar Wilde observed what he saw in the world, “Everything in the world is about sex, except sex. Sex is about Power.” I actually agree with that, as long as we are defining the word “World” in the biblical context. I tend to be a person that says there’s nothing new under the sun. There’s … More Sex and the Lies We Fall For
The Sabbath is Saturday. It always has been and it always will be. The rub comes in the beloved 10 Commandments. They all sound so relevant except for #4 – Remember the Sabbath Day & Keep It Holy. So Christians face a couple of options: Option A) They can pretend that Sunday is the new … More Stop Pretending the Sabbath Is Sunday
Yes. (Well, I don’t think anyone wants to say “No.”) My general rule of thumb is that Jesus is the Greatest Ever no matter what we are talking about. Here’s what I know: If Jesus Christ’s purpose was to be a Swimmer, than he’d be better than Michael Phelps. If Jesus Christ’s purpose was to … More Would Jesus Win Every Event at The Olympics?
Or is Scripture Prime a better name? I want every passage in the bible to be put into a database. Then, once you click on the free Netflix Bible app (whether on your mobile device or smart TV), the home screen comes up and all your bible reading categories are on full display. Categories There’s … More How Is This Not a Thing: Netflix Bible
I personally like scary movies. I think it’s fun to jump in your seat. I actually think most scary movies are stupid because like all movies, I expect a plot (weird I know) and good characters (who don’t willingly hide in exitless basements). There’s a couple of things that bother me as a Christian. I … More Ghostbusters: What the Bible Says about the Paranormal
Repentance is brought up a lot in Gospel presentations. I can already hear someone saying, “And rightfully so!” But is “repentance” a “part” of salvation? That’s where the misunderstanding comes in to play. If when you say “repentance” you mean, “stop sinning before coming to Jesus,” then you are dead wrong. If we could stop … More Misunderstanding “Repentance” Is Confusing the Gospel
There is no doubt that Scripture presents God in the masculine. He’s our Heavenly Father. Heck, He’s a “He” every time a pronoun is used. Jesus also was for sure male. He was a 8lb 6oz baby boy. When He was describing His relationship with the church, He’s the Groom and we’re the Bride. However, … More Is God a Mother Too?
First, What’s a Miracle? The boring dictionary definition is “an event that is contrary to the established laws of nature and attributed to a supernatural cause.” That’ll work. So when God steps in and does something truly impossible – that’s a miracle. I think sometimes we water-down important words by making them so commonplace. I … More Stop saying, “It’s a Miracle!” If It’s Not a Miracle
