Jeremiah 29:11

  There are different ways to reject the Bible. One way is to set it on fire. Another way it to set it on a shelf. A final way is to set it off in the wrong direction. The first way is direct. The second way is subtle. The final way is deceptive. Satan will take whatever way he can get, but his favorite is the last one. He is a deceiver, so he has no greater thrill t...

3 Ways to Nullify Faith

  How do you neutralize something? You have to take away some feature of its energizing nature. For instance, if you want to neutralize a fire you have to take away one of three things: oxygen, fuel, or heat. If any one of those elements is gone, fire can no longer exist. So how do you nullify faith? You have to take away a feature that energizes it. So what are the ...

God and My Stolen Computer

  I am typing this on a borrowed computer. Why? Because I think my work computer just got stolen. I am still hoping this is just some bad trick or that I set it down in some place so random that I still haven’t found it. But with each passing minute and every memory of the morning, my hope is crashing like a virus-filled computer program. I really liked that co...

One Approach For Evangelizing Catholics

  One of the most difficult features of Catholic evangelism is the tyranny of the similar. Not only do the statisticians of world religions put Catholicism under the umbrella of Christendom, but there has been a decades long ecumenical push within Protestantism to say Catholics and Protestants are on the same team, just wearing different uniforms. Therefore, to talk ...

The Only Way To Not Waste Your Vote

  Politics is not a fantasy world. You have not entered the realm of werewolves and vampires, where a silver bullet or a clove of garlic is going to vanquish the problem. We still live in this ole’ cursed world, where issues still spring up from the heart, and sin has never been something you can manage. The reality John Owen spoke of still has a gorilla-grip h...

Grace Is More Amazing Still: A Sermon Correction

  So this blog post is a bit embarrassing and humbling. Correction usually is. It is one thing to be a juggler and to drop a ball. That is embarrassing. But when you are leading a juggling instructional course on not dropping balls and you then drop a ball, that is really embarrassing. That is what this blog post is like. In my sermon that spent much time on understa...

You Have Superpowers

  We have all been asked the question. If you could choose just one superpower, what would it be? Today I heard an expert weigh in on the issue. During an interview on Up To Date, hosted by Kansas City Star’s Steve Kraske, two long time science fiction writers, George R.R. Martin and Melinda M. Snodgrass, were asked this very question. I was very interested. He...

A Nail In The Coffin of Reason

  God is inescapable. It doesn’t matter what you think, say, or do, you are forever locked into God’s creation. The greatest proof of God’s existence a person can have is when God gives new life to his dead soul (1 John 5:9, 11). Next to this experience of life in Christ, the greatest testimony to God’s existence is the inescapable fact that w...

Stop Raising Shy Kids

  I am deeply blessed by having a host of wonderful people that live around and interact with my children. While you can hardly overstate the importance of parents, children will also be blessed and challenged and rounded out by the giftings and experiences of God’s people. I want an army of people pointing my children to Christ and providing examples of sacrif...

Shutting Their Mouth

  What are you trying to accomplish when you share the gospel? I hope it isn’t conversion because no mere human can accomplish that. Yes, you need to pray fervently for someone’s salvation, but there are goals that you can strive for that are more within the realm of human responsibility and faithfulness. What is my goal? My goal is to close a person&rsqu...
