Description: Ever notice that when a Christian denounces the exaltation of evil by sinners, he is usually branded as a hypocrite and a non-follower of Christ? In this sermon, we demonstrate these diatribes are nothing more than vicious slanders meant to distract from the true hypocrisy – that of the sinners who make such a charge. This message is also an aid, meant to help Christians defend the Gospel message, Christ’s character, the Bible and their own character against the attacks levelled by secularists.
Description: Sarahi, my wife, is joining me during this podcast episode to talk about one of the most tragic ironies: sinners making arguments that Christians should be making. We use an article written by an apparently repentant advocate for fornication as an example of this and as an exhortation to Biblical Christians to think more profoundly about why the Bible calls believers to live differently from sinners and the secular world – all with the intent of holy living and more effectively communicating Gospel truth.
The reader may or may not know the name Israel Folau. I certainly didn’t until a few days ago. He’s a professional rugby player who’s suddenly been deemed unfit for employment. His violation? He posted a message for adulterers, homosexuals, thieves, atheists and the like through his Instagram account: repent, believe in Christ and be saved from Hellfire. If the reader is well versed in the modern socio-political scene, he will accurately presume that such a message wasn’t well received by the militant-homo-lobby and its vanguard. However, what if I were to tell you, dear reader, that another unexpected group also proceeded to rebuke Folau for simply communicating Biblical Truth – namely, conservatives – would you believe me?Continue reading
Description: In lieu of a podcast episode, I’ve decided to post the recorded audio of a message I recently shared with our church’s youth group. It is based on Jesus’ prophetic words found in Matthew 24, seeking to demonstrate how Christ’s counsel to endure and grow in Christian behavior and thought in the midst of growing deceit and wickedness is as relevant as ever. I apologize for the quality of the audio. Although it is intelligible, it isn’t as pristine as I would prefer it to be. (That’s the musician of 20+ years speaking in me.) We are in the process of upgrading the recording equipment so that we can continue to post these messages regularly. I pray that the listener will be edified and informed through this sermon and will share it with others needing a word of encouragement and examination of the times.
There is an unwritten rule that applies to the public – all are required to perform perfunctory displays of sorrow or outrage over some well-publicized incident in order to show solidarity for the sake of sanctimony. Stated differently: when a tragedy occurs, everyone (most especially personalities) must somehow demonstrate to others how virtuous they themselves are. The same wretched act has once again played itself out after the conflagration of one of the Western world’s oldest cathedrals.Continue reading
Description: During an interview, commentator Matt Walsh declared to Ben Shapiro, his boss over at the Daily Wire, that Christians shouldn’t quote the Scriptures during every debate and conversation they have with those of an opposing persuasion. Many Biblical Christians were incensed with his assertion. After informing Walsh of their vehement disagreements, Walsh proceeded to write a missive against them that is very reminiscent of the sorts of tactics Marxists use in an attempt to vilify their opponents – including calling many Christians Bible-Thumpers. In this episode, we examine the substance of Walsh’s assertions, answer whether or not he is right and explore why he proceeded to write this response.
During a segment on NBC’s Meet the Fake Press with Chuck Todd, militant sodomite, mayor of South Bend, Indiana and, unbeknownst to me until now, Bible teacher Pete Buttigieg pontificated on why Biblical Christians ought to wear dunce hats for supporting Donald Trump during the 2016 election. It was a perfect display of absolute charlatanism, exceeded only by Satan’s failed attempt to tempt Christ. An explanation is in order.Continue reading
