While Christians should be known as people of love, peace, humbleness, and submission, we are also called to be wise and discerning. We are not called to a "mindless submission" of the government. The past couple of years has awakened many believers (myself included) to the dangers, and unbiblical nature, of statism. Read more

While the book of Hebrews is often subjected to rigorous theological debate on some of its contents, the book is one filled with a profound sense of hope. Nestled amidst the several warnings of apostasy one finds several passages intended to encourage the weary, lift up the faint-hearted, and ultimately, direct our affections and intellect back to the person and work of Jesus Christ. The overarching message of the book of Hebrews is the superiority of the Son of God,... Read more

It is interesting, to say the least, that the term for “double-minded” only appears twice in Scripture, and both within the letter of James. The first occurrence deals with those who are subjected to various trials (see James 1:2-8). The point of James in this section is to encourage the faint-hearted in recognizing the purpose of such trials. Trials are akin to the testing of the genuineness of one’s faith (v.2), but what such trials produce is endurance—that quality every... Read more

For all of the visual splendor that Rings of Power yields, the story thus far feels a bit hollow and manufactured for this Tolkien fan. Why? Well, I think it's because the writers are products of a generation that doesn't understand the substance and significance of transcendent virtue. Read more

In the first episode of the TCITC Podcast, we discuss the importance of the church, and why we should all go. Regular church attendance helps not only us but also those with whom we are in community. We also discuss the dangers of Christians who think they don't need to be in church or think they can just have church at home. Read more

Whatever station you may find yourself in, let the Lord’s perfect work realize its intended purpose. You and I may never come to find ourselves in more pleasant circumstances in this life. We may not see the unintended consequences of our sin improve. In fact, they may become worse and all the harder. Likewise, we may never even come to understand the specific reasons why we suffer in the ways we do. We might even sense that the Lord has forgotten us in our troubles. Yet what we can know is that the intended purpose behind God working all things for good in our sufferings, is that one great day, we will depart from this life marred by sin and inherit all the glories promised to us through Christ. Read more

When discussing biblical doctrine, the subject of Unconditional Election can be an emotional, dynamic trigger for many Christians. For some, such as myself, it spurs immediate reflections on God's sovereignty, grace, and divine nature. And for others, it provokes thoughts of injustice and partiality. Yet, as much as the latter might not like it, the doctrine of divine election is very biblical. Read more

This is how Total Depravity helps us. It tells us, honestly, who we are and what we naturally deserve: wrath. Total Depravity is a critical, first lesson that one must learn if they are to truly grasp the depth, beauty, and richness of God's sovereign grace. Read more

It is impossible to glorify God if we are not keenly aware of His Word. I would go further and say that anyone advocating that we can glorify God by disobeying His Word is prescribing evil. This is direct dissension from God, His Word, and the economy of His covenant with us. If we are to keep the main thing the main thing, as Mr. Warren pleaded, we must center our lives and ministry on obeying God and His Word. Thankfully, His Word is extremely clear on the issue of women pastors and elders.  Read more
