Jesus & The Gospel

A couple of videos

First, Dr. Tim Keller, Founder of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan talks about his new book ‘The Reason for God’. Thought this is a great lecture, wish it was longer. What I really enjoyed is the attitude of humility he holds to during the questions at the end: http://www.youtube.com/v/Kxup3OS5ZhQ&hl=en&fs=1 And second, Do Christians get on(…)

“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.

As I have been preaching through the book of Second Peter, there is one verse that has stood out to me and is continually a point of meditation. I really think that you could say it is the theme of the book. If you have been listening to my series, or are familiar with the(…)

The Ten Commandments – Introduction

Recently, a major news organization ran a series of reports on the 10 Commandments from the Old Testament asking if they are still relevant to us today. Although I did not get to see most of these reports, I was struck by the legitimacy of our society asking this question. After all, these are 10(…)

Idolatry

In Christianity, the goal of life is to draw close to Christ and be conformed to His likeness. This is what the word Christian means – “little Christ” or “like Christ.” When someone first starts out on this path into Christ-likeness, known as “getting saved,” they will immediately begin to see how certain things in(…)

How to Keep a Prayer Journal – part 1

Honestly, this is something I have been thinking about writing for some time, but didn’t know if I had the right to do so, because it is something that I am so inconsistent at doing. However, because there is much value to it, but little help on getting started, I figured I’d share with you(…)
