Said better than I

Here is an excellent sermon from pastor, Alistair Begg of Truth For Life. He explains the difference between religion and rebirth, relationship with the Risen Lord, Jesus Christ: being guided and indwelt by the Very Spirit of God as opposed to walking in the flesh and “playing Christian.” Begg’s ministry has been a tremendous blessingContinue reading “Said better than I”

Why Bible?

So, we’re supposed to, suggested to study the 66 books of the Bible, Old and New Testaments. Why is that? If you’re like me, a bit of a rebel you may feel yourself tensing up at the suggestion. “Who, me, why?!” Well for a lot of reasons, let me share. Firstly and foremost, the HolyContinue reading “Why Bible?”

Pray for revival

There is being experienced within the Church a strong desire for revival. This is fantastic and God honoring I believe. I hear of prayers for peace, for the Spirit’s guidance and filling. All good things. I am moved to say also, we should pray in repentance within our churches. We ask for revival, for newContinue reading “Pray for revival”

Rather offensive

The love and mercy of our, God is beautiful and truly incredible.   With that said, in addition,  coupled with our, Lord’s love is His holiness.  God is ultimately and totally holy, as such He has wrath: righteous indignation toward transgressions, and transgressors. And rightfully so. These two characteristics of the, Godhead in total, are playedContinue reading “Rather offensive”

In All Things

The Bible, God’s inerrant, infallible word is truly remarkable! Of course for its trustworthy knowledge of, God and, His will, and the way of salvation, but also with regards to every aspect of living life in this fallen world. Take for example the regulations regarding skin disease recorded in Leviticus. Before any knowledge of germ-theoryContinue reading “In All Things”

Communion with God

God has perfect fellowship, communion, friendship and family within His very being: Within the, Godhead, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Therefore, God does not need us in any way, shape or form. He is in need of nothing. Our, Maker however desires fellowship with His creatures. Just as He created Adam and Eve in theContinue reading “Communion with God”

For crown and country!

So why as believers are we obedient? Why do we forsake the ways of the world in acceptance of God’s will? As the actor cries out, “what’s my motivation?!” I have been contemplating this question and have some thoughts (yes, odd I know: Evan thinking… outrageous!). Any who, to start we first must lay downContinue reading “For crown and country!”

Hoping for chaos

There exists within many believers and myself I’ve found an odd occurrence. As Scripture speaks about the wickedness and chaos leading up until Christ comes. We, I, desire our Lord to return so bad that we find ourselves almost rejoicing at the chaos coming about. I confess that I am not shocked by events, ifContinue reading “Hoping for chaos”

Maybe it’s Maybelline

We all (those old enough that is) remember the 90’s commercial for Maybelline beauty products “maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s Maybelline.” Yes, Evan, we remember, so what? I’m glad you asked! You see, in society it is commonly argued that homosexuality isn’t a moral issue as those individuals who partake in the gayContinue reading “Maybe it’s Maybelline”

At odds

Welcome: please join me on this journey of introspection! I’m perplexed in understanding my past, my involvement in the church and my apostasy and in the end attempted suicide. What I mean is was I saved? I confessed Christ and was involved in the church and studied theology in depth. So there are three possibleContinue reading “At odds”
