Celebrating Palm Sunday 2020

Luke 19:28-40 (JB Phillips Translation) 29-31 Then as he was approaching Bethphage and Bethany, near the hill called the Mount of Olives, he sent off two of his disciples, telling them, “Go into the village just ahead of you, and there you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever yet ridden. Untie it…

Christian Inspiration: Show Some Backbone

But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father in heaven. Matthew 10:33 Holman’s Christian Standard Bible “I’m a singer who is a Christian, but I’m not a Christian singer.” “I’m a writer who is a Christian, but I’m not a Christian writer.” Now, I understand the heart behind this.…

“Hopeful” Universalism Is A Cop-Out

Proverbs 3:5- Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. I had the privilege of wasting my time the other day. I was reading an article from a Christian author that I had previously respected. He and I had some disagreements on eschatology, but I still thought he…

Pentcost Sunday 2016

A very brief history of the Christian holiday: Pentecost Sunday. Right before, Jesus Christ’s ascension, when He went into Heaven, He told His disciples to wait for Holy Spirit, who would give the disciples an incredible anointing to do the things of God. On Pentecost (where the holiday gets its name), is a shared Jewish holiday taking place…

Resurrection Sunday 2016: I believe

Some Christians call it Easter and others call it Resurrection Sunday. I personally call it Resurrection Sunday, but I honestly do not care that some folks made it to coincide with spring.  That being said, yes, I do believe that Jesus Christ was born of a virgin, that He lived, He was crucified, dead, and…

Palm Sunday 2016

Luke 19:28-40 (JB Phillips Translation) 29-31 Then as he was approaching Bethphage and Bethany, near the hill called the Mount of Olives, he sent off two of his disciples, telling them, “Go into the village just ahead of you, and there you will find a colt tied, on which no one has ever yet ridden.

Christian Inspiration: Friendship

Proverbs 17:17- A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity. Seeing friends come and friends go, some I’m still in contact with, others I’m not. This has gotten me thinking a lot about friendship and what it looks like.  Because two friends drift apart, does that mean that they’re…

Redeeming the Rapture Part 1: Fear and Faith

I touched on Eschatology (the study of the End Times) a little bit in my last last article. With this resurgence of the partial preterist belief (those who believe the End Times have started, slowly), I have also noticed that their dialogue is a little bit condescending and dishonoring toward Futurists (those who believe that…

Christian Inspiration: Friday the 13th 2015

Here we are again, another weekend after Friday the 13th. No one really knows why it is called that or what started this unlucky day. The Da Vinci Code falsely claimed it was the day the church killed off the Knights Templar. The evidence of that is completely and utterly contradictory as Friday and Tuesday the…

The Real Meaning of WWJD

Remember the old 90s cliche, “What Would Jesus Do?” It was stylized on hundreds of products from bumper stickers to bracelets as WWJD.  It is sad that it became a cliche because I really believe the heart behind it was in the right place. It was asking Christians everywhere to look at different situations and ask…

What Can We Learn From Jonah?

Jonah is one of the most conflicted characters in the Bible. He has his own book of the Bible located in the Old Testament. He was a prophet. What’s a prophet? A prophet is someone who receives messages from God. It can be about encouragement, a warning, a word of knowledge, or even the future. God…
