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”

The End afoot

Wake up people! Look around you at the chaos. As you can tell the weather by signs so we can tell the day by signs occurring. The days are evil, the world is in chaos with natural disasters and plagues surfacing. The Lord Jesus Christ returns soon: repent and believe the good news please! AndContinue reading “The End afoot”

The Big 36

It’s my birthday today, not a particularly remarkable event given the number of human beings on our planet. But, wait, perhaps remarkable because I’m alive…in more ways than one! I started off the year with bang (too soon for suicide jokes?) My life as I knew it ended that day, I survived physically but cameContinue reading “The Big 36”

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”

Wages

I obsessed over death for years. I remember as a child rigging up a dead-fall out of 100 lbs of workout weights and a tripwire to fall on my head and kill me. I had been thinking of suicide and an infatuation with death since I can remember. I thought that life was hell andContinue reading “Wages”

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”

Procrastination is the enemy

“Eh, I’ll do it tomorrow, it can wait.” It is all too tempting, easy and common to procrastinate. When we have a task to do, especially if it’s not something we’re fond of, we will make every excuse not to do it. I don’t know about you, but I am certainly guilty of such! TheContinue reading “Procrastination is the enemy”

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”
