A Brick from a Building: Is worship in an overflow room the same as worship online?

“If I am gonna’ watch church in an overflow room I might as well just watch church from home…” It’s going to happen. The moment will come, most likely this weekend, where someone – or perhaps multiple someones – utter just such a phrase. I get it. I understand. Truly, I do. But the logic […]

Passion Week, Plague & the Plan of God

Today is Palm Sunday. Nearly 20 centuries ago Jesus, astride a colt, rode through the gates of Jerusalem. The people of the surrounding region laid before Him palm branches and chanted the refrain: “Hosanna in the highest!” The branches were a sign of victory; the proclamation a petition for salvation. It was a celebratory and […]

Did Jesus go to Hell?

This is a legit question and one that followers of Christ, based on the writings of Peter and the testimony of the Apostles’ Creed, have been asking for centuries. Did Jesus descend into hell? Was this descent between His death and resurrection? What did he accomplish in this time? The answer to this question is […]

Should We Sing the Songs of Musicians with unBiblical Theology?

“Should we listen to or sing the songs of bands with porous theology?” It’s a legitimate question and one that came to me, in similar form, this past week. From the dancing Israelites on the eastern shore of the Red Sea in the fifteenth chapter of Exodus, I had drawn lessons on worship for the […]

The Deep Magic is Weakening

From my college days, as an immature and overly-zealous theologian, to the beginning of 2018, entrenched as the Teaching Pastor of BLDG 28, my favorite book of the Bible was Paul’s letter to the Romans. As an unabashedly Reformed fellow, how could it not be? But as the weight of betrayal and the darkness of […]

Why is the Old Testament so Horrifically Violent?

This question isn’t new. Since I entered the realm of apologetics and theological studies in my late teens I have been confronted with it many times. Often the inquiry has been little more than an embittered accusation of cosmic barbarism. But recently, particularly as our church has gone through the book of Judges, the query […]

The absurdity of God loving some people and not others

Frequently I receive questions from those seeking out truth. Last week I received the following query from a young pastor… “The one thing I cannot wrap my head around is the idea that God only loves some. I feel like I love people more than that and that confuses me. How would you explain this […]

Blessing or Barbarism? An Answer to the Issue of Abortion

I hope you’ll understand my reason for penning this post with the grit, brutality, and rank candor that I employ. While a sensitive issue, this is not an issue that we can afford to tip-toe around. Children are being slaughtered and the church must be bold and brave to speak up. I only hope that […]

Halloween: Delightful or Diabolical?

It’s that time of year. Leaves falling, temperatures dropping (barely here in the sunshine state), football in full swing, and everything scented or flavored pumpkin. Tagging along with the fall is that delightful or diabolical (depending on your vantage point) holiday known as “Halloween.” It’s the day that causes costume-clad children to rejoice and Bible-belt […]

Why Thursday worship?

Leveled my direction numerous times since our leaders began openly chatting about our new weekend worship gathering this spring has been this inquiry: why Thursday worship? It seems folks can wrap their heads (and hearts) around Saturday worship or an additional service on Sunday evenings, but the thought of gatherings to adore Jesus with His […]
