Consider the person and work of Jesus Christ, the object Christians should be re-shifting their focus toward during this Lenten season anyway. Consider in particular the actions He took toward purchasing our redemption from sin and death. Read more

John 6:22-71 is truly a fascinating passage in many ways, as it deals directly with Christ’s claims to divinity amidst a crowd who simply didn’t see Him for who He was. It is no small coincidence John includes the narrative of Christ performing such magnificent miracles in the preceding verses. These miracles not only demonstrate His mastery over the elements, but serve a larger point to show His mastery over all Creation. Within this same measure, Jesus uses these miracles… Read more

With the news of Billy Graham’s death came a wave of mixed reactions. Many lamented the death of a man whose life marked one of faithfulness to many ministry endeavors, others utilized this as an opportunity to critique his theology, whilst others still utilized it to speak to the eschatological hope those in Christ have. Perhaps what was most interesting though was reaction from many progressives, as they saw Graham’s death as an altogether different occasion to celebrate. Graham committed… Read more

I remember when I came to faith at the age of 21, I wanted to be the next Billy Graham. What I meant by that sentiment was simply that I had a massive hope to reach millions with the gospel of Christ. What young Christian wouldn’t day dream about being able to hold a massive audience captive with the gospel? Today, as I reflect upon the news of his death, I am reminded much of the hope we have as… Read more

Guard Your Life and Your Doctrine I have long abandoned the illusion that all seminary students are genuine Christians who love the Lord and love the Scriptures. Perhaps it was when I first learned Bart Ehrman was an alumni of the same undergraduate program I am, but it was likely even earlier than this. The general shift in academia over the years has had a severe, liberal bent. Even many within conservative Evangelical circles are often shoring up with institutions… Read more

The film falls in to the old mistake of seeing Old Testament characters as simply moral examples, to either follow or learn from. Read more

If there is anything the Parkland shooting has revealed, it is that the baser instincts of mankind are still very much present, yet perhaps not in the way many would expect. The news, if you don’t know, is that 19 year old Nikolas Cruz gunned down at least 17 victims with a rifle at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Perhaps what was most interesting was how quickly the event became a platform to bypass the tragedy and… Read more

A flurry of coverage has erupted from nearly every major news outlet over the recent nuptials of Catholic school teacher, Jocelyn Morffi, and her fiancé, Natasha Hass, and Jocelyn’s subsequent firing from her job. At first blush that might seem a little surprising – yet here’s the rub: her job at a Catholic school was terminated because her conduct was in opposition to the institution’s bylaws, her own contract, and the Catholic Church’s position. While ALCU hasn’t gotten involved as… Read more

In terms of progressive ideals, what we see is not a new or improved culture, but rather, an anti-culture. As a whole, the presuppositions of the movement are grounded upon that which is anti, or against, traditional, biblical norms. In this, the appeal to affirming sexuality as a fluid construct is wholly dependent upon one’s personal desires and completely dismisses the ideals set beforehand. It is anti-history, anti-religious, and more clearly, anti-Christian. What makes this noteworthy is that the positive… Read more

As I watched the final episode of the 3 season BBC show Broadchurch (airing in the US on Netflix), I realized that what I had been watching for 24 episodes was an extended lament on the loss of Christianity and objective morality in England and the West. Read more
