“The god Complex”

“Your tattoos and pipe smoking stand in direct opposition to your professed desire to be holy.” What a ringing indictment. The type of accusation that really gets this pastor’s blood boiling. Admittedly, my initial response to this declaration was sinful; but through the power of the Spirit of God, and a few long drawls on […]

Is Westboro Baptist truly Christian?

As I scrolled through internet news this morning I was astonished again (though I shouldn’t be) by the highly publicized social media war between country superstar Blake Shelton and the unfortunately infamous Westboro Baptist Church. I was not surprised at the immaturity exhibited by the “boy round here” icon, for after all, if you have […]

Why are not more Christians intellectuals?

Why are not more intellectuals Christians? I certainly appreciate your question and actually agree to some extent with the premise of it. For far too long the church of Jesus Christ has been content to sit on the intellectual sidelines, clutching our pithy cliches and greeting every argument and attack against the truth of the […]

20 Books Every Potential Minister Should Read

I was asked this past week what books I would recommend for any ministry leader/potential ministry leader to read. Here is my response. Though I realize this is not an exhaustive list (by any stretch) here are the top 20 books that I would recommend to anyone going into ministry (particularly those going into vocational […]

Is All Sin Equal?

Time and time again I have preached that all sins are equal in the eyes of God. However, as the question has been recently dissected and challenged, a further explanation of what I intend to communicate in this statement, and deeper examination of degrees of sin has become necessary.

Is God in Hell?

“To be separated from God for eternity is no great threat to the impenitent person. The ungodly want nothing more than to be separated from God. Their problem in hell will not be separation from God, it will be the presence of God that will torment them. In hell, God will be present in the […]

Faith and its Result

This blog is in response to a question I received from one of our members concerning the necessity of sanctification and the unpacking of saving faith… As I have stated prior to this, I am generally not a fan of terminology that is not obviously Biblical. I prefer to simply teach the truth as it […]

Baptism versus Filling of the Holy Spirit

When dealing with the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the filling of the Holy Spirit it is vital that we under the distinct differences of these two Divine works. At the moment of conversion we are each baptized with the Holy Spirit of God (Matthew 3:11; 1 Corinthians 12:13). Spirit-baptism is a metaphor that […]

Sad Omissions

A Review of “The Bible” series on the History Channel (Episode 2) Last week I caught a barrage of friendly fire when I lit into “The Bible” mini-series on the History Channel. Apparently, a few deemed my approach to the show to be unwarranted, defending it by stating that it was presenting Biblical accounts – […]

The Corny and Cliche

A Review of “The Bible” series on the History Channel (Episode 1) With all the chatter recently surrounding the new “Bible” series premiering on the History Channel, I  vowed to pen a blog each week addressing the good, the bad, and the theologically ugly aspects of what I wrongly assumed would be a documentary of […]
