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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Other Olympics

My interview with Bob Costas….. “Bob Costas everyone. 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. Last night, I had the privilege to speak with two-time Vegetable Gardening […]

Israel and the Church

Not replacement. Gentile inclusion.

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 […]

Why the Devil Lets You Alone

Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? – Romans 7:24 “I shall conclude by making an observation or two to many now present. There are some here who say, “I am never disturbed in that fashion.” Then I am sorry for you. I will tell you the reason […]

Skilled

Jay Adams: Ezra was a skilled scribe.  His task, at least in part, was much like that of a preacher. How did he get that way? What was the source of such skill? Here is the answer: Ezra had determined in his heart to Study the law of the Lord, Obey it, And teach its […]

Is He to Be Trusted, or Marked as Harmful to the Church?

What Ever Happened to Individual Responsibility?

The moral decline of America continues unabated. The governing powers manifest this immoral state. Contributing factors are many, but one stands out in my own mind. It is that of individual responsibility. It is as scare as hen’s teeth in this ‘modern progressive’ society. People today are irresponsible beyond belief when compared to the early […]

The Only Love We Can Return to God

In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. – I John 4:10, 11 Love and Law are necessary counterparts, necessary to each other. God’s […]

When Leaders No Longer Lead

From JTM: “A good shepherd leads his sheep to pasture. He cares for their every need. He does not drive the sheep with the shepherds crook, but rather uses it to correct the wayward. Leadership, at any level, should know and follow the example of the Good Shepherd. Failure to do so leaves the sheep […]
