Heralded by Calvinists as irrefutable proof of God’s sovereignty in salvation, Romans 9-11 is arguably the most theologically complex section in all of scripture. One can (and should) spend a life time considering the implications of these verses and what they mean for God’s plan of redemption. Having examined many arguments about why this text doesn’t mean God is wholly sovereign in salvation, I have never found any of them to be even slightly compelling. This is especially true for… Read more

Lauren Daigle has been the subject of much debate as of late due to her recent answer to the question of the sinfulness of homosexuality: “You know what, I can’t honestly answer on that… I have too many people that I love that are homosexual. I don’t know… I can’t say one way or the other. I’m not God, so when people ask questions like that, that’s what my go-to is. I just say, ‘Read the Bible and find out… Read more

Contrary to what some would suggest, it is the duty of any man in a position of influence or power to anchor their authority to the Bible – especially those whom He has called as shepherds. It is no controversy that the Lord establishes and deposes kings (Dan. 2:21). Christ Himself corrected Pilate, demonstrating that the very man having the “power” to either free Him or crucify Him, only received his “power” from above (Jn. 19:11). In addition to this,… Read more

In a blog post entitled, “What Foster Parents Wish Other People Knew,” Sharon Astyk writes about how hard being a foster parent is and gives some practical tips for loving foster families. Among some of the things she writes are, “The kids aren’t grateful to us, and it is nuts to expect them to be, or to feel lucky that they are with us,” and “Don’t hate on their parents.” I thought about that post while viewing the new movie,… Read more

Shame is often presented as this ever-looming enemy – one we need to simply cast aside as we pursue true happiness and joy in this fleeting life. Psychological studies abound on how shame is simply a measure wherein another individual is exercising control over you – you just need to escape it and move on. Others might advocate for some causal benefits of it which allow us to navigate social mores more easily, yet the emphasis is still placed upon… Read more

1) Don’t repeatedly point to the word “whosoever” or “world” in John 3:16  s verse. These may rooted in a reasonable question, if you are unfamiliar with a Calvinistic interpretation of the text, but this is not a place to hinge a debate. If you’re online, typing in all caps will not gain you any friends either. 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
