The portrait of Jesus in the gospels is truly stunning. Jesus, described by his enemies as the friend of sinners, was uninhibited in the presence of lepers and unafraid to confront demonic spirits. He was unembarrassed by prostitutes and unimpressed by religious leaders. He is unoffended by your weaknesses, undeterred by your sin, and unashamed to call you his own. How do you respond to someone like this? Continue reading . . .  The portrait of Jesus in the gospels...Read More

Many struggle to understand the Trinity. I count myself among them! But I believe it! I believe it not because I can explain it with logical precision, but because the NT so clearly and repeatedly teaches it. One such place is the book of Revelation. There we see consistent and repeated evidence of the Deity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit: three co-equal persons existing as One undivided God. Continue reading . . .  Many struggle to understand the Trinity. I count...Read More

The best way to describe the dispensationalist’s view of the millennial kingdom is chronologically, i.e., by means of the temporal order in which the events actually occur. Although there are variations among those who call themselves dispensationalists, I will focus here only on the majority view known as dispensational, pretribulational, premillennialism. Continue reading . . .  The best way to describe the dispensationalist’s view of the millennial k...Read More

John 8:44; Acts 5:1-11; Col. 3:9; Rev. 21:27). The question is this: "Is it ever morally permissible to tell a lie?" Continue reading . . .  Is it ever OK for a Christian to lie?

Truth, or integrity in our speech, that sense of moral obligation to God according to which we represent things as they really are, both in word and deed, has gradually eroded in many segments of our society. This shouldn’t come as a total surprise insofar as the first sin in the Garden of Eden was an attack upon the veracity or truthfulness of what God himself had said. Continue reading . . .  Truth, or integrity in our speech, that sense of moral obligation...Read More
