Sermon Audio Files Posted (Score another one for the awesomeness of technology!)
How awesome are the opportunities we’ve been given? How amazing are the tools that God has provided? How cool is the technology that He has raised up for our use to proclaim His name and advance His Kingdom right here and now? Along those lines, I’m happy to share the following links to audio files […]
Foundations are the beginning, not the end. (So can we please get on with building something already?)
Countless ministries, organizations, churches and Christian business are dedicated to laying (or restoring) a firm foundation in what Hebrews 5 describes as “the elementary doctrines of Christ”. The nature of God. The nature of man. The fact of sin and the necessity of repentance, submission, and salvation. The sovereignty of God. These “elementary doctrines” are obviously important. They’re […]
Happy Reformation Day! (Now get to work!)
‘Round this time last year we posted On October 31, are we walking dead or are we supernatural reformers? There we asked a handful of questions, including: What is true biblical Reformation? What does the supernatural Gospel do to a person who, by the grace of God, repents and believes in response to the command to do so? […]
If we love Him, we will keep His commandments.
This is the first published version of what has gone on to become the Stick People for Jesus web comic here at FBC. ~ If you know of anyone who might appreciate this post, please share it.

“Theonomy” is dead! Long live Theonomy!
The title of this post is my spin on the closing line from an article by American Vision’s Joel McDurmon, who recently debated Jordan Hall (of Pulpit & Pen) on subject matter central to theonomy. While I’ve not yet seen the debate (cannot wait! …but will have to), and I anticipate numerous future opportunities to tackle many […]
Intro to Fire – The Power and Purpose of a Common Believer (Excerpt from “Fire Breathing Christians”)
This has been a long time in the making, but the day has finally come…
Posted here is the introduction from Fire Breathing Christians – The Common Believer’s Call to Reformation, Revival, and Revolution. The book will be released in late October. In the days leading up to launch, I will be posting excerpts from many of its 21 chapters so that you might get a feel for the material without having to go to the trouble or expense of purchasing a copy. Of course, if you like what you see, I fully expect you to buy at least three copies.
New Vision and the Perception of Depth
When a Christian is born through their supernaturally imposed spiritual regeneration, they are made anew. They are fundamentally transformed in an instant. They are literally brought from spiritual death to spiritual life. In that magnificent moment of conversion, they are made into what God describes in His perfect Word as “new creatures”.
As new creatures, these reborn men, women, boys, and girls become defined and definable by new parameters, and they are imbued with a new heart, a new will, and a variety of amazing new abilities and attributes.
The attribute I’d like to touch on briefly here is that of new vision.
Jihad Butch – The Legend of Ergun Caner
Butch has quite a tale to tell, and telling it has served him well.
He has fortune. He has power. He has fame. And each of these were brought Butch’s way through the creative use of his compelling story.
Heresy Chic: Denningtonism Jumps, Stumbles and Splatters onto the Evangelical Stage
Denningtonism is here.
And it ain’t pretty.
Monica Dennington, self-appointed Bible interpreter and theologian, has declared war on Bible interpreters, theologians and those who might find value in what God has done through them. At the top of her list: Calvinists.
It’s All About Future Me! (The Rise of Science-Fiction Christianity)
I am a sucker for good sci-fi.
Star Wars hit the scene when I was five, and that was all she wrote. I was hooked. From there I dove deep into the original Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica series and have been thrilled to see both successfully relaunched in recent years. There’s no doubt about it: I have embraced my inner geek.
The Zombie-Driven Church: Finishing Off the “Wounded Sinner”
When I was a kid, I had a thing for zombie flicks. I adored them.
They never really gave me the creeps or kept me up at night because I always knew they weren’t real. Unfortunately, there’s been something of a resurgence of the zombie concept lately and, in this instance, they are quite real.
