I fear we often have an unrealistic image of the Apostle Paul. We tend to think of him as if he were some combination of a Navy Seal and a Super-Hero. And yet, Paul knew what it was like to experience human weakness. When he described his ministry in the city of Corinth he said that he was with them “in weakness and in fear and in much trembling” (1 Cor. 2:3). I don’t need to tell any of you what it is like to feel weak and inadequate and overwhelmed. B...Read More

As most of you know by now, I concluded my sermon series on Romans on August 21st. The final three verses of Romans are a glorious summation of the greatness and glory of our God. In this brief article I simply want to highlight what Paul says about the ability or power of God. I trust you have noticed in Scripture how often the ability or power of God is emphasized and extolled. I often think of the question Jesus asked the two blind men in Matthew 9. “Do you bel...Read More

[An insightful article by Carl R. Trueman.] Carl R. Trueman | Even our dictionaries are unclear now As the most perplexing and intractable question of the hour for our cultural elites seems to be “What is a woman?,” it is interesting to see that the Merriam Webster Dictionary has provided them with some help. This comes in the form of an addition to its definition of “girl,” one meaning of which we are now told is “a person whose gender id...Read More

Before I begin let me say with all sincerity that the debate over the millennium is a secondary issue. It should never divide Christians. What unites us is our common confession that Jesus is coming back! Let that be the basis for our unity. My departure from premillennialism was gradual and came as a result of two discoveries as I studied Scripture. In this article I will only deal with one. My change came about as I devoted myself to a thorough examination of what the...Read More

This brief article by John Piper was the key to my becoming a Christian Hedonist. Read and ponder it closely. Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you! (Psalm 67:3, 5) Why does God demand we must praise God? C.S. Lewis: Just as men spontaneously praise whatever they value, so they spontaneously urge us to join them in praising it: “Isn’t she lovely? Wasn’t it glorious? Don’t you think that magnificent?” The Ps...Read More

At least, that’s the opinion of Irish actor Gabriel Byrne. In the August 19, 2022, issue of The Week Byrne reflects on the pain of his childhood and the sexual abuse he suffered. Here is what Byrne said about his perspective on life and death:  “One of the things I realize as I get older is that part of reconciling oneself to life is the acceptance that we lose everything: we lose parents, we lose friends. And eventually we get to the stage where we l...Read More

Even though the Jehovah’s Witnesses have stopped ringing my doorbell, they will on occasion leave at my front door a copy of their magazine published by The Watchtower Society. It is very easy for undiscerning or uninformed people to think that the Jehovah’s Witnesses are a Christian group who confess Jesus as Lord. After all, the magazine several times will refer to the knowledge of Jehovah and everlasting life “through Jesus Christ.”Read More

By now you have certainly heard the news that the actress, Anne Heche, has died after driving her car at 90 mph into the home of an unsuspecting individual in Los Angeles. Anne was 53, and leaves behind two sons, Homer (age 20) and Atlas (age 13). Anne’s mother, Nancy, and Anne’s older sister, Abigail, have become two of my wife’s and my closest friends. We first met them in 1998 when they attended a conference we hosted in Kansas City. Something click...Read More
