You make His heart sing. He can’t stop thinking about you. He throws back His head and He sings over you. The voices of the angels ring in His ears night and day, but what He yearns for most desperately is to hear your voice calling out His name. You think you’re worthless, but He thinks you’re worth dying for. The value He has placed on you is greater than you can imagine. He literally gave His life to be… Read more

The Greek word for “worship” is proskyneō and it is translated as “to kiss, to lower oneself in humility or reverence, to adore, to surrender completely to another”. So, when Jesus let go of His equality with God [see Phil. 2] and humbled Himself and took on the form of a servant, and became nothing, He was doing exactly what anyone does when they worship something. Jesus “lowered himself in humility” Jesus became a servant to mankind. Jesus adored us and gave… Read more

As a member of the Christian Anti-Terrorism Task Force you join an elite team of valiant men and women who have devoted their lives to transforming enemies into friends for more than two thousand years – and counting. Our founder – Jesus of Nazareth – was the first to show us the unstoppable power of love. One of our early converts was a former terrorist who was, himself, transformed by the irresistible love of Christ and went on to write… Read more

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:6) Last month most everyone who follows Jesus took the time to remember the birth of the Prince of Peace. We sang songs that announced the incarnation of Christ and we re-read the scriptures that reminded us of the angels who sang of peace on… Read more

A few weeks ago I wrote a post about how God never wanted animal sacrifices and how Jesus just forgave sins all the time without the shedding of blood, or even repentance from the person in advance. Specifically, I pointed out “7 Examples Where God Forgives Without Bloodshed.” To add to that, I’d like to point out another difference between the Old Covenant concept of sacrifice and the New Covenant twist that Jesus brings to the equation. Under the Old… Read more

You’ve probably heard about the “Gay Jesus” film on Netflix that has been creating a lot of controversy lately. Most people I’ve talked to about this have not actually watched the film. To be honest, neither have I. But whether you’ve watched the film or not, I think we can still have a conversation about the subject matter and hopefully agree that a gay Jesus is not only not controversial, it’s not blasphemous either. Here’s why: Being a gay is… Read more

There are over 2.3 Billion Christians in the world today, according to most polls. In the USA, approximately 65% of Americans identify as Christians, or approximately 167 Million who claim to follow Jesus. Christianity is the world’s largest religious group. So, that means that if every one of those who claim to follow the Prince of Peace would put His words into practice and love their enemies, lay down their weapons, and refuse to fight [as Jesus famously predicted His… Read more

  Last night, as we were sitting around the fireplace, reflecting back on the year that was, my wife, Wendy, found this little wire balloon with the word “Hope” inside of it. Our youngest son had found it on a walk a few weeks earlier and picked it up off the ground. It ended up on the fireplace near a few logs and sat there, unnoticed, until a few hours before the New Year began. To be honest, I think… Read more

Most Christians break one of the biggest rules of Biblical interpretation: Basing all of your theology on a single verse of scripture. That verse is Hebrews 9:22: “In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.” Many take this to mean that God’s requirement for forgiveness is the shedding of blood. But, before we address that error, let’s take a look at that assumption. Does the Scripture support… Read more

Most Christians – if you ask them – will strongly deny that they believe in Virgin Sacrifice. But, if you start asking them a few specific questions about their theology, you’ll see that they actually DO embrace this theology. For example: Ask them if they believe that Jesus was innocent and sinless. Most will say “Yes.” Ask them if they think Jesus ever had sex with a woman. Most will say, “No!” Ask them if they believe that Jesus had… Read more
