Paul issues a stringent warning about those who are engaged in the “worship of angels” (Col. 2:18b). This is a notoriously controversial statement due to the ambiguity of Paul's words. I'll try to briefly explain the options for its interpretation. On the one hand, it could refer to the worship that the angels themselves offer to God (cf. Revelation 4-5). If so, the false teachers were claiming to be extraordinarily spiritual because their worship of God was...Read More

In this short video I explain the difference between our eternal union with Christ and our experiential communion. It is a vitally important distinction that all Christians must understand. ...Read More

Matt Tully Maybe there’s a Christian listening right now who has his/her theology straight and buttoned down and would affirm with you the idea of the perseverance of the saints—the idea that once we’re saved by trusting in Christ for salvation, God has forgiven our sins and he will not lose us. Nothing will jeopardize our salvation. We have that eternal union. But they maybe look at their own lives—their continuing struggle with sin—and th...Read More

By Michael Brown / January 21, 2022 [This is a fascinating and controversial article posted a few weeks ago by Michael Brown.] There are wonderful, godly people who are sick. And there are terrible, ungodly people who are healthy. So, being sick or healthy, in and of itself, is not a proof of divine blessing or divine judgment. That being said, there is absolutely no question that the Bible sees sickness and disease as negative, destructive forces. And all of us, intui...Read More

Matt Tully What would you say to the Christian listening right now who says, I believe that. I believe what you’re saying about Christ’s work on my behalf and how I am cleansed. Intellectually I get that, but I just struggle with my feelings. I do wake up every morning and my mind just automatically goes to this thing in the past that I feel like defines me and it haunts me. Is that just something that they’re going to have to struggle with for the res...Read More

Matt Tully I want to return back to that Etch A Sketch metaphor that you used a few minutes ago. I think it’s powerful because we know that with an Etch A Sketch, once you shake that thing and turn it upside down, it’s gone. There’s no undo button, unlike maybe a computer today where anything you do can be brought back with a quick shortcut. I wonder if people might be thinking, Does that metaphor work with God? This fits in with another one of the thi...Read More

Matt Tully That’s a good moment to take a big step back, and I want to talk about sin. I know it’s a very basic concept that probably all of the believers listening right now would think, I know what that is. I know how to define that. But I think it’s worth taking that step back and actually trying to understand those terms a little bit more comprehensively. I have three questions that I was wondering if you could answer. First, What is sin? How would...Read More

[This article was published at the Crossway blog on January 18, 2022. It is an adaptation from one of the chapters in my new book, A Dozen Things God did with Your Sin (and three things he’ll never do).] Does God Ever Forget? Can an all-knowing, omniscient God ever truly forget? Is it not an essential element in being God that nothing ever slips his mind? Could God ever not remember? In Isaiah 43:25 we hear God declare of himself, “I, I am he who blots out...Read More
