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?”

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”

Rebel with a cause

Let’s be rebels, you and I! Let’s throw off the restraints of society: it’s cultural and religious expectations, customs, opinions and norms. Let’s rebel! Our society is obsessed with rebels: movies, television, music, art, politics, etc. No I’m not talking about worldly rebellion. I’m not telling you to stop vaccinating your kids, to be vegan,Continue reading “Rebel with a cause”

Reality check

It’s common to hear that we have souls. Or spirit within us. The thought is we’re physical beings having an immaterial soul. There’s a problem with this however, it’s a misunderstanding, a confusion of priority. We are eternal spirits inhabiting a material body. Why does that matter, Evan, aren’t you “cutting hairs” here? No IContinue reading “Reality check”

All about the blood

It’s all about the blood, people! wait, Evan, that’s pretty morbid. No, it is not “morbid,” it’s truth, it’s life, and heres why: First, what is bood, it’s purpose and significance?

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.

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.

Prosperity “gospel”

“Hey did you hear Joel Osteen, he has such an uplifting message?!” No I did not, no. Yeah, yeah, God wants me to be “happy, wealthy, healthy, and prosperous.” He and other ministers of the flesh proclaim such. “Wait, Evan, aren’t you being rather critical, rather unkind?” No, and here’s why. Our God is anContinue reading “Prosperity “gospel””

Decision time

We are all, well most, acquainted with Paul’s words in his letter to the Romans, “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” (3:33). Yup, we’re all sinners, every one of us. What does that mean? It means we stand guilty before an absolutely holy God. We are lawbreakers and haveContinue reading “Decision time”

A curse

We often focus on the beauty of the cross, as we should! We miss however its absolute horror as well. Christ became cursed upon the cross for our salvation. Mocked, flogged, beaten, pierced and abandoned for our sakes no less. He took upon Himself the full wrath of the Father towards sinners. Jesus was cursedContinue reading “A curse”
