Liberals, NAR, Mormons and the Appeal to Experience

Sometimes when I speak in churches on the deity of Christ, I ask the congregation how many believe that Jesus is God? Most raise their hands. When I ask how many believe they could defend that claim, only a few would raise their hands. Then I’d pick someone with their hand in the air and ask them for their best argument, and sometimes the response would be, “I feel Him in my heart.” Not to … Continue reading

The Feeding of the 5,000 Migrants

Earlier this week someone posted a meme of a church marquee with the message, “A Caravan of 5000 Migrants Confronted Jesus. So, He Fed Them.” This reminds us of the assertion made by many that Mary, Joseph, and Jesus were “homeless.” No, they were never homeless. They had to leave their home and travel to Bethlehem due to a government decree by Caesar Augustus that required everyone to be registered in their home town. They … Continue reading

What’s on the Other Side?

The old saying is “It’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt.” That is true when kids are rough housing and things go dangerously awry. But life can be that way too.

Life is all fun and games for lots of people, until the music stops and there is no chair to grab onto. … Continue reading

RINO: Resurrection in Name Only

Most of us will celebrate the resurrection of our Lord this Sunday.

The awe and wonder of the historical event and its centrality to the gospel has been downgraded, and all too often, discarded by the mainstream culture. Sure, there is a general nod to the reason for the day, but … Continue reading

The Worst Sermon

Needless to say, I was away from home on a Sunday. We decided to go to a friend’s church we had attended before. I won’t name the church and details have been altered to stave off embarrassment. But I bet you can guess the denomination. The first thing I noticed how the congregation had dwindled. Where once there were a hundred seats, now the chairs had disappeared from the back. I walked across a sea … Continue reading

Joe Bidens’ and Nancy Pelosi’s Church Is Firmly Against Same-Sex Marriage

[Trigger warning: statements that might qualify in some minds as offensive hate-speech will be quoted in this post. Heck, I might even throw in a few of my own!] You know Joe. He’s the VP whose favorability ratings go up every time he puts on Ray-Bans. And you know Nancy: the 76-year-old former (first female) Speaker of the House to whose face the years, and allegedly plastic surgeons, have been kind. Okay, then. You certainly … Continue reading
