            Image:HeavenlyPerspective Kenn Stilger A new study from the Pew Research Center has found the population of Christians in the United States is on a downward spiral. Polling 35,000 Americans aged 18 and older, the poll found that over the last seven years, those calling themselves “Christian” has diminished by 8 percent overall. That’s about 5 million people who have moved out of the Christian faith since 2007. This new demographic is being called the “Nones” (as… Read more

As I prepare for an online debate on the topic “Is It A Sin To Be Gay?” I realized something profound: No Christians could have possibly debated this topic previous to 1946 because their Bibles didn’t contain the word “Homosexual” before that. It’s true. Go look at 1 Corinthians 6:9 in your King James Bible and you’ll see this: “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor… Read more

If you’re not familiar with Aikido, it’s a style of martial arts that uses an opponent’s energy against them to redirect their kinetic force to turn it back upon them. Or, as the Wikipedia entry explains: Aikido’s techniques include irimi (entering), and tenkan (turning) movements that redirect the opponent’s attack momentum. The man who invented this style of martial arts created for one purpose: “to create an art that practitioners could use to defend themselves while also protecting their attacker from injury”. This is exactly what… Read more

“When [LGBTQ-affirming Christians] tell me that I am wrong for saying that [homosexuality] is a sin, in the simplicity of my faith in the Holy Scriptures, I point him to this sacred record [the Bible], and tell him, in all candor, as my text does, that his teaching blasphemes the name of God and His doctrine. “The tree of [affirming homosexuality and transgenderism] is evil and only evil…[it] is nourished by an utter rejection of the Scriptures.” – Rev. Henry Van… Read more

What do we mean when we say that something is “inspired”?   For example, if I hear a song on the radio and I respond by saying that it was “inspired” what I mean is that I believe the song had a spiritual quality to it that enabled the God of the Universe to reveal something of truth or beauty [or both] to me through the words and melody of the song. It’s the same for me if I view… Read more

As I have tried to point out several times, there is a huge difference between being “Biblical” and being “Christlike”. If we cling to the Bible and advocate for a more Biblical worldview, this leaves us open to a host of “Biblical” ideas like slavery, patriarchy, genocide, polygamy and abortion. Yes, even abortion is a Biblical principle. Here are two examples of how the Bible allows for – and often even commands –  abortions: First, in Numbers 5:11-31 there is… Read more

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” That’s probably the most commonly-quoted verse from the New Testament whenever anyone questions the accuracy or truthfulness of what we read in the Bible. It’s found in 2 Timothy 3:16-17 [an epistle which many Bible scholars admit was most-likely not actually written by the Apostle… Read more

Over the weekend I spoke at a conference in Seattle, Washington area that focused on “Jesus, the Bible and the Holy Spirit” and during an informal discussion on our final morning together, one of the participants asked a question about the Holy Spirit. His question was about how we engage with the Holy Spirit and how the Spirit leads and interacts with us in both an individual and a corporate sense. Here’s my response: First of all, I would say… Read more

Over the weekend I spend 3 days debating “Jesus, the Bible and the Holy Spirit” with a few dozen other people in the forest outside of Seattle, Washington. Several of the other speakers at this conference maintained that the Bible was the only possible way for anyone to know who Jesus is. Why? Because, as one of them put it: “Everything I know about Jesus came from the Bible. I’ve never heard God’s audible voice. I can’t have a seance… Read more

When the President of the United States, under the leadership of his Dispensationalist Christian Vice President and his End Times Obsessed Secretary of State, declares Jerusalem the capital of Israel and invites one notoriously Christian Zionist Televangelist and one infamously anti-Jewish Christian Pastor to speak at the dedication ceremony for the new US Embassy in that city, you might be wise to ask a few questions. Like, why is the guy who said Jewish people were going to burn in… Read more
