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”

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”

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? Blood is “the red liquid that circulates in the arteries and veins of humans and other vertebrate animals, carrying oxygen to and carbon dioxideContinue reading “All about the blood”

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”

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”

The real L word

The L word is thrown around a lot in modern society. Love, love, I’m talking about love! What is it, what does it entail and communicate? In society people use love as a disposable item to be used on demand and thrown away. “I love that movie,” “I love that pizza,” “I love you.” AnContinue reading “The real L word”

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”
