“Go and Make Disciples”

If you have been a Christian long I am sure you are familiar with the passage found in Mark 16 (or at least Matthew 20) where Jesus tells the disciples to go into all the world preaching and making disciples. It is at the end of His earthly ministry and even after the resurrection has(…)

Tolerance

Recently I submitted an article for a soon-to-be-released book on the issue of Morals and American Culture. In this article I wrote: Aristotle said, “Tolerance and apathy are the last virtues of a dying society,” yet it seems that these two precisely describe modern day America. We have come to a place where no one(…)

All Things Work Together for the Good of Who?

Ok, first of all I am sorry to everyone bugging me because I still haven’t written. Secondly, I don’t know how many of you listen to my sermons but I will include the player at the bottom of this post. The topic from Sunday night (1 Peter 4)goes along well with what I am about(…)

Biblical Instructions for a National Revival

We need revival in America. I know most of you agree with that statement, but what do we do to make it happen? As I look around America today it seems that the answers given by most churches, and even by the most prominent leaders in Christianity, can be varied greatly. For some the answer is that we believers must(…)

Rejected

Today I was thinking about something that happened a few years ago when I was still in college. I had been spending a ton of time studying some of the harder concepts in Theology to grasp.

Waiting on a 2-cent Bullet

Yesterday, on the 10th Anniversary of 9-11, I was talking to an older man after church about all the blessings we take for granted here in America and the fact that the God who gave it all to us can just as easily take it back in an instant. (Example: the Nation of Israel in(…)

The Days of Noah

Yesterday I had a great time with some friends of mine talking about various the different difficult topics we read in the Bible, and it became a good time of remembering the gospel for each of us as forgiven, children of God. The largest passage in question was Genesis 6, where it says, “The Lord(…)

A Better “Friendship Evangelism”

I have a many great friends that I love dearly. I spend as much time as possible with the ones I can, and I miss all of them that live too far away to see regularly. I even get depressed sometimes when I can’t get some of them on the phone. (You know who you(…)

Just Do As You’re Told

Last week I posted on here about a revised version of “friendship evangelism.” Now, as I am gearing up to head to Haiti in January and beginning to make my missionary plans beyond that, I have been thinking a lot about some distractions that can oftentimes get in the way of us actually “doing the(…)

His Mission. Who’s Way?

Last week I posted on the subject of, when God said to “go and make disciples,” it isn’t something we have to pray about. We should just obey. Now, while I do stand firm on that statement, I thought a good follow up would be to discuss things that we, as disciple-making Christians, must continually(…)
