We must know God accurately if we are to know Him at all. Read more

“When Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished.” And bowing His head, He yielded up His spirit.” (John 19:30, ESV) The words “it is finished” are universally recognized as those Jesus uttered with His last bit strength at Golgotha.  Often taken for granted as merely a signal of the end of Jesus’ earthly mission, those three little words ought to be a never-ending wellspring of comfort for Christians in every generation. They are evidence that something big was completed. Anyone within hearing distance of the famous last… Read more

Andy Stanley recently penned this piece on the use of the Law for the New Testament believer. While he doesn’t explicitly signal this is what he is writing about, it undoubtedly is – but more importantly, he is undoubtedly wrong and makes several categorical errors. Now, this is certainly not the first time Andy Stanley has made comments about the Old Testament that are inherently problematic. I’ll actually go a step further and say I earnestly sense Andy’s knowledge of… Read more

A few weeks ago, Les Lanphere, creator of the film Calvinist, announced a kickstarter and plans to produce a new film called Spirit & Truth: A Film About Worship. The aim of this project is very timely. I was fortunate enough to catch up with Les and talk a little about the film, and its underlying driving force: The Regulative Principle of Worship Read more

Steven Furtick has long been a bane to the Evangelical church on the basis of his own self-admission: he’s unqualified for the pastorate. He literally wrote the book on it in response to MacArthur’s one word answer when asked what his thoughts were on Furtick. Yet, rather than reassess whether or not he would be qualified per Scripture’s own stance, Steven Furtick doubled down in his pride with a publishing deal. While he may be unqualified in numerous areas, the… Read more

There is no inconsistency between being pro-life and in support of the principle of the death penalty. In fact, the same basic reality undergirds the Christian’s support of both. We will see this by walking through the Christian arguments against abortion and for the death penalty in five points. Read more

UPDATE: I was just pointed to Daniel Darling’s Twitter page, which posted the following from the ERLC: We made a mistake on our @ERLC website yesterday. I’d like to explain how it happened and apologize: https://t.co/bQoLAyKaOg pic.twitter.com/bWGG00ntpV — Daniel Darling (@dandarling) August 2, 2018   I am glad to see it was a mistake, and for the explanation given to clarify how it happened. I have left the original post up, namely, because it is still pertinent to addressing the… Read more

Recently, I was given the opportunity to ask A.K. Alexander of Accelerate Books a few questions. I first heard of Accelerate Books after some friends were talking about it on Facebook; I was immediately interested. As a husband, father, full-time employee, and blogger I find it hard to find time to read all the books on my reading list. Not to mention, it is challenging to retain all that I read in a useful, practical way. Interest piqued, I signed up.  A week or so later, I reached out to AB for this interview. Read more

A silly, little article has swept the internet by storm. I call it silly not necessarily due to its content – to be honest, there isn’t a ton within the article that I take exception with. Tattoos, college education, and a wife in the workplace, are a matter of preference and freedom, but matters of sexual purity, demeanor, and money management all find commands rooted within the Scriptures. These things shouldn’t be controversial in the least: every Christian is under… Read more

Ill-equipped and unprepared to spiritually shepherd a flock, many pastors are surprised to find the job unfulfilling and difficult. Seminary may have prepared them to write an exegetical sermon, but it didn’t prepare them to love their neighbor, put to death sinful, sexual desires, handle harsh criticism, or circumcise their heart. Read more
