Joe Biden Is Right

I think it is telling that in the perfect Garden of Eden, created by God himself, he commands Adam to work and creates Eve as a help mate to help him work. "The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it." Genesis 2:15 Eden is a model for our perfect relationship with God. If we want to think about the new heavens and the new earth, we should look to Eden. And...

Why Your Favorite Sin Is Not Suddenly Okay

W

Christians accept the nearly 2000 year old doctrine of progressive revelation, or what may better be referred to as incremental revelation. In the Bible, the God who seems aloof and genocidal slowly reveals the nature of His relationship between Him and us and between each of us. The God who demands Israel wipe out its enemies is the same God who commands us to turn the other cheek in the New...

What the Heck is Happening in America? Let Me Explain.

“The white supremacist defines us by color and the leftist defines us by sexual orientation and gender. Both write out original sin and find evil and sin elsewhere. All of this is to figure out who gets to be the Grand Sez Who in the absence of God.” Social Justice Warriors drive out dissent at Google. Antifa attacks small businesses. White supremacists run over and kill in...

If You are in the PCA or RUF, You Need to Watch This

Rosaria Butterfield, from a speech in December of 2016, has some hard words for the Presbyterian Church in America and Reformed University Fellowship. She is also absolutely right. The forces of “I want to be liked” have invaded both institutions and are trying to twist Biblical theology to be more popular and less confrontational. From my vantage point, knowing people who have bought...

Have You Prayed for President Trump?

H

When Barack Obama was President, I often reminded my conservative friends, readers, and listeners that scripture commands we pray for our leaders. Many of them would reply that they had prayed Obama resign, die, lose re-election, not cause lasting harm, or otherwise prayed every which way they could pray about him without actually praying for him. Having mentioned on social media last week that...

David Gushee Has Not Left Evangelicalism. He Has Left Christianity Itself.

D

David Gushee is a liberal Baptist theologian connected to my alma mater. At one time, Gushee wrote scholarly pieces that noted homosexuality is a sin. But over time, Gushee moved left and he “evolved” in that position. He has now written an honest and commendable piece in which he speaks an honest and indisputable truth. He says there is no common ground between those who believe...

Happy Easter

H

But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel. And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to...

T

I am blessed to work for a radio company that allows me to spend Good Friday talking about Jesus instead of politics and the news of the day. I’m pleased to present to you this year’s Good Friday Show from WSB Radio in Atlanta.
