How Canada Sees America Under Barack Obama

(Let’s face it, Canada is right. – JT) Some Canadian editorial humor directed at the USA. Canadian’s Version of David Letterman’s Top 10. This is Canada’s Top Ten List of America’s Stupidity. Of course we look like idiots … because we are … 10) ONLY IN AMERICA … could politicians talk about the greed of […]

Recognizing False Teachers

“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.” – Matthew 7:15 False teachers are cleverly disguised, and in our day, there are many. They are disguised so that the sheep, perhaps lacking in knowledge, will not notice their true nature, until they are already established among […]

SBC: Ronnie Floyd Is A False Teacher

Health and wealth prosperity teaching in the SBC…. You can watch the full message here.

How the SBC is Leading the Church Astray

Scripture: Exodus 34:12-16. Watch yourself that you make no covenant with the inhabitants of the land into which you are going, or it will become a snare in your midst. But rather, you are to tear down their altars and smash their sacred pillars and cut down their Asherim —for you shall not worship any […]

The Barronelle Stutzman Story

From Denny Burk: I have written numerous times about the florist in Washington state who is being sued for her refusal to participate in a gay wedding. Her story in particular is really troubling. She has been happily serving gay people in her shop for years. She served one gay couple for nearly a decade […]

In Case You’ve Been Wondering

Obviously, I have not been posting lately, at least not since February 24, 2014, and  yes, there’s a reason. First, I’ve been on vacation, physically and spiritually speaking, from blogging – what it is, means, what good is it, etc. I am a preacher, called of God, and that is my first priority. Secondly, I’ve […]

I Saw God Wash the World

I saw God wash the World last night with his sweet showers on high, and then, when morning came, I saw Him hang it out to dry. He washed each tiny blade of grass and every trembling tree; He flung his showers against the hill and swept the billowing sea. The white rose is a […]

Reformation Heritage Books, New Calvinists and the Roman Catholic Connection

Here is a vital question: Will the steward be found faithful? (I Corinthians 4:2) Can a gospel minister be considered faithful to Christ and His Word who promotes the sale of books by those who proclaim error and associate with the enemies of Christ? That is the question which must be asked about Dr Joel […]

Understanding Romans 7:24

According to many Christians these days, Christians are wicked. Now, it is one thing to describe the Christian as being able to fall into sin, but according to Scripture, the wicked are sin, they live there, they are enemies of God and they will not spend eternity with our Lord Jesus Christ in the new […]

Let me remind you all that while we are enjoying the excitement of the 2014 Winter games here in Sochi, there is another Olympic games running concurrently in Virginia, USA, the 2014 Olympic Gardening Games.

UK-USA Ministries: Bringing the Gospel to A Post-Christian England

I highly recommend this organization as worthy of your support. I absolutely love the concept. If you’ve ever considered getting involved in a ministry making a lasting impact to the glory of God, here’s a great opportunity to serve in a country which is unbelievably spiritually dark. Less than 5% of the population of England […]

The Church Needs to Get Plastered

“The transforming power of expository preaching may not appear immediately. As a rule it takes time for good seed to result in a bountiful harvest. Over in New Jersey Benjamin Franklin used to plead with farmer friends to put lime on their land, so as to raise larger crops. When he found that they did […]

Justice Clarence Thomas & the Northern Liberal Elites

Supreme court Justice Clarence Thomas: “The worst I have been treated was by northern liberal elites. The absolute worst I have ever been treated,” Thomas said. “The worst things that have been done to me, the worst things that have been said about me, by northern liberal elites, not by the people of Savannah, Georgia.” […]

The Stick

Take a simple stick and add one comic genius. You get this.

The Power of God’s Word

I’m reminded again today of the power and life that comes from a daily reading and saturation of the Scripture in our lives. We live in an ‘Information Age’ but if that information doesn’t speak life and hope and truth into us it is simply just noise. Listen to God’s word to Joshua: “Be strong […]

The Most Dangerous Man Alive

This is getting some good press….. Check it out. He is the most dangerous man alive today. He is an extraordinary liar. He is a thief and, some would believe, with good reason, he is a murderer. He has, upon the world scene, upstaged both Stalin and Hitler. Neither of them were a danger to […]

The Dumbing Down of Worship

Over the last 50 years or so, there has been a dumbing down of Biblical worship and the witness of professing Christians in America. The extent of this process has increased to the point that the present worship or witness is not recognizable to that of the early body of Christians in Apostolic times. What […]
