How Pastor’s Might Avoid Lawsuits for Refusing to Marry Gays

You’re a pastor, and a gay couple comes to you and ask you to marry them. You know it’s out of the question, sinful and in your heart you refuse to do it. Then again, you’ve read the news and it’s everywhere. Gays are suing church’s left and right for refusing to marry them. In […]

Friends die, it’s a fact of life. It happens all the time, every day. Ken Silva of Apprising Ministries, has passed away after a long illness. No, I have no particulars regarding his illness, nor the plans for the funeral, but, the news of his death is making the rounds, and for that, I am […]

Daniel Akin & Al Mohler’s Denial of Original Sin

Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned— Romans 5:12 Daniel Akin, president of Southeastern Baptist Seminary, along with Al Mohler have written a position on infant death.

Poll: What Is the Greatest Doctrinal Error or Threat to the Church?

Towards Economic Liberty

If we want economic liberty – want to be free to work most productively and to have what we produce – our concern must focus on the tax roots to shut off the revenue which nourishes the disease. To work at the other end and merely bemoan the detailed projects of socialism or damn the […]

The Soul of the Sluggard

The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, but the soul of the diligent is made fat.-Proverbs 13:4 John Gill: He desires knowledge, but does not care to be at any pains to get it, and so has it not; he desires riches, but chooses not to make use of the means, to be […]

The Only ‘Israel of God’

My Apologies

Hi there. It’s been awhile, hasn’t it? My apologies, if you think I need to make one, for not posting anything recently, or at least anything of substance.

Thanking Edward Snowden and the Biggest Excuse Ever to Revolt Against the American Government

Edward Snowden. You know the name. He’s the guy who exposed the NSA for spying on Americans and has said he doesn’t think things will change but will only get worse. He’s right, and we can thank ourselves for that. Now everyone knows the abuses of the United States government under Barack Obama. Now everyone […]

A Memorial Day Reminder

America is neither a Saviour or the last hope of mankind – titles and glory which belong to Jesus Christ alone. The sword of America is not the sword of Jesus; loyalty to the American flag is not an equal or greater virtue than fidelity to the Christian Church; soldiers of Christ and soldiers of […]

Called to Go Unnoticed

whatever you do, do all to the glory of God —1 Corinthians 10:31 In the Scriptures, the great miracle of the incarnation slips into the ordinary life of a child; the great miracle of the transfiguration fades into the demon-possessed valley below; the glory of the resurrection descends into a breakfast on the seashore. This […]

Defending Donald Sterling

Ok, be serious. Are you really offended at the latest, media-made, scandalous comments of Donald Sterling, the owner of the LA Clippers? Really? Are you an American?

Easter and the Importance of the Burial of Jesus Christ

In our thoughts and presentations of the Gospel, much attention is given to the death and resurrection of our Lord, and rightly so. But there is often times a tendency to go from “He gave up His spirit” (John 19:30) to “Now on the first day of the week…” (John 20:1), as if there are […]

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.

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.

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.
