Most Christians are Missing Out

I recently read The Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn. One of the things that struck me was how clever Cahn was to explain Hebrew concepts to his target audience: people who are ignorant of the Hebrew roots of Christianity. The main character in Cahn’s book is a secular writer with minimal knowledge of religion at all. …

Randomly Blowing People Up is Wrong

What a strange world we live in where one feels compelled to write a blog explaining how premeditated  mass murder/maiming is actually wrong. Unfortunately, we live in a fallen world with quite a few people around  who don’t view the killing of people who do not believe like them as murder. In their sick and …

Are You A Born Again Christian?

Wow, that question sure illicits some emotions, doesn’t it? Unfortunately, that statement comes with a ton of baggage that was attached to it in the twentieth century by certain denominations who wielded the question like a hammer! In those denominations, all one had to do was attend one revival, repent, get baptized and one was …

The Spirit Comes Quickly

When the Holy Spirit comes into a person, it comes very quickly. When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place.

The 1611 KJV Bible is not the Protestant Bible

That title is pretty eye-catching, huh? While doing research for a slightly different project, I just learned something that blew my mind. The 1611 King James Bible is the work of Anglican Christians not Protestants. The Geneva Bible was the Bible of the reformers and it is also the Bible that was used here when …

I just finished an incredible fiction book called The Facade by Michael S. Heiser, Ph.D. The book’s website is http://www.facadethebook.com. Dr. Heiser is a highly educated scholar of ancient languages who uses his scriptural and theological knowledge to craft a very addictive book that encompasses a number of very interesting topics. The theological angle is …

Darwin, Continental Drift, and Evolution

Charles Darwin died in 1882. The theory of continental drift was not widely accepted until long after World War II. What on earth could those things have to do with each other and then with evolution? Buckle up because I think all three are linked and very much related. Alfred Wegener proposed the theory of …

Tithing in the New Testament

It is quite a strange place we find ourselves in 21st century Christianity. The entire globe is populated with one of two types of Christianity, apostolic or Protestant, and while both systems almost completely reject the laws of Yahweh in the Torah, they both retain one specific Old Testament law: Tithing. There is no requirement …

Just Get Here

Here we sit on our way home from our second annual visit to Church of God Fellowship for the last half of the Days of Unleavened Bread. Again, I praise this incredibly uplifting congregation for their hospitality and Christian service. During today’s fabulous service, inspiration struck. It’s the idea to “just get here”. This congregation …
