True Regular Bible Use?

I thought this data about Bible Believers from Christianity Today more revelatory than most others. The information researched seems to me to get much closer to the reality of trying to determine whether those questioned actually do Believe, Use, and Apply the Bible regularly.  Instead of just asking a more generalized question like “Do you […]

“Transcendence” the Movie

Ok… I’m definitely in a movie mode these last couple of mths. Nick is my partner in crime. “Transcendence”… the story line and theme of the movie are definitely intriguing, but the movie itself is not made very well.  I can be hyper critical at times… concerning plausibility within the theme, not so much is some scientific […]

You Don’t Go to Church

Please… Please… Let’s agree together, not to say, “I went to Church.” “I’m going to Church.” “Where do you go to Church?”… “Church wasn’t very good today.” It may seem trivial, but You are the Church. We are the Church. The Body of Believers, the called out ones, the assembly, that gathers regularly as the […]

OT Genocide We have to Deal with It!

Luke, a really smart 6th grader at Church, asked me after watching the Bible Series on TV…. “Wasn’t God’s instruction to kill the Canaanites a sin?” Wow!  Great question Luke. We must ponder this Biblical Revelation in the Text… if we take the Text as seriously as we claim we do. Many in denying our […]

If I mistreat the waitress…

If I mistreat the waitress… because i’m in a hurry… to get to the building committee meeting… to argue vehemently my point for the multi-million dollar church building structure… walk away angry… miss my wife’s dinner… miss my daughter’s bed time… and leave out the door early in the morning to provide hundreds of thousands […]

Non-biblical reference to Peter & Paul 95AD

Authentic non-biblical reference to Peter and Paul’s martyrdom. Bishop Clement’s Letter 95AD to the Corinthian Church. Chapter 5: “… Let us set before our eyes the good apostles. There was Peter, who, because of unrighteous jealousy, endured not one or two but many trials, and thus having given his testimony went to his appointed place […]

8. You ARE Church!

If you and me, the individual, are the Church, then each of us should find a community, commit, be involved, pray, sacrifice, and be an active part of that body… what else would we do… exist alone??? visit church worship experiences for years??? If you have a family, you have to be involved in that […]

5. Seat Belt on the Highway

Covenant Eyes is a filter and an accountability program I have used for years. Everyone wears a safety belt on the highway, I can not think of why your children and even you wouldn’t wear one on the internet. You can not disable it nor get around the application. Everyone should have something similar, it’s […]

3. Church Government

In the Old Testament God lead his people initially in a direct way, then by judges, prophets, kings, and priests. The Old Testament was much more directive in how, at least during Temple Times, authority, ministry, and priests lead God’s people at the Temple in Jerusalem. When the Messiah Jesus came he reorganized the “called […]

2. Sacraments: Baptism and Lord’s Supper

Sacraments is Latin… it means to mysteriously make sacred. Ok, so for me, it’s one of those really really difficult ones. Baptist and similar families just believe in “Ordinances“… just an obedience thing, no real mystery. Catholics on the other end, believe in these- God acts through the priest and “saves”. I’m more in line […]

1. Orthodoxy, Doctrines, Theology, Essentials, Non-essentials

Orthodoxy is “right belief”. These Doctrines are the historic essentials of what defines a Christian to be a Christian. And no, not all agree. But historically, most “conservative” “orthodox” “evangelical” people, however you refer to them,… hold to some basics, these basics I would call the Essential Doctrines. Those are listed in our “Core Beliefs”. […]
