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?”

Evidence please and thank you kindly

There exists in modern society and absolute acceptance of the theory of evolution. If you press someone for evidence you hear “there’s a ton…” the only specific examples you’re given are “Darwin’s finches,” and bacterial changes. These examples however do not prove or support a change of kinds: one animal separating from another not allowingContinue reading “Evidence please and thank you kindly”

Law and gospel

There exists in modern evangelicalism a missing component. The gospel is presented, the cure, but the sickness isn’t pointed out. sin. Using the law as the means of mirroring its living in all of us. We get decent reception with the good news, all “that talk about sin and God’s wrath toward sinners is soContinue reading “Law and gospel”

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”

Infusion negative

The topic of Soteriology, theology dealing with salvation is the key foundation of many theological principles. The great questions of “how are we saved, who can be saved, and what salvation takes” are of the upmost importance! Our answer to these questions results in salvation correctly taught and received, or damnation and apostacism. The importanceContinue reading “Infusion negative”

Overcoming evil with good

Roman’s 12:2 reads, “do not be overcome with evil, but overcome evil with good.” This exhortation is powerful in its implications and application: to look for, and respond in love and mercy no matter the situation or “ugliness” and injustice of a person/situation. Our God is the God of redemption: of turning what is ugly,Continue reading “Overcoming evil with good”

Scarlet letter

A scarlet letter for all to see it’s all that people see of me I try my best to take it off yet fail and fail each time I try This face you see it isn’t me The stares the looks the awkward gaze is hard to take most days I try and act likeContinue reading “Scarlet letter”
