What The World Needs Now Is A Christianity That Has A Pair
Many ask, but few seem to really want to know the answers to, the same basic questions: Why is our culture going to hell on a rocket? How did things get so bad so fast? Why do they only seem to be getting worse at a faster pace with each passing week, month, and year? […]
The Rapture and Global Warming: Laughably Bad Eschatologies with Deadly Serious Consequences
Bad eschatology kills. On the way to death it leads its adherents deeper and deeper into bondage and darkness. Kinda like what we have going on in America right about now. For those new to the term, eschatology is just a big way of saying “future things” or “the future of humanity”. It’s a category […]
Precious Snowflake Syndrome
Ours is a culture increasingly defined by flakes. Precious Snowflakes. These Precious Snowflakes are all around us. They dominate our public schools, our government institutions, our corporate owned media, our fiat currency fueled economy, and even most of our self-described “conservative, Bible-preaching” churches. And they’re killing us. Ever so softly and nicely, with warm smiles and hugs, they’re doing […]
Which “god” would grant the “right” to openly worship Satan? Hmmm…I wonder…
Even Saturday Night Live is ultimately God’s tool. Yes, really. Even something like a foolish, mocking swipe at Christ and His Bride, the Church, when taken by the likes of SNL, is always ultimately going to be used perfectly by God for His glory to accomplish His purposes for the benefit of His people (see: Romans 8:28). With […]
Little Gospel Syndrome and the Death of American Culture
Wouldn’t it be great if people took God seriously? Wouldn’t it be great if people took God seriously enough to take His Word seriously? In detail, I mean. As in, all of it. As in, out of a true love for Him (see: John 14:15). Wouldn’t it be great if the professing Christian church in America […]
Planned Parenthood Zombie Rips Brain from Living Child. Yes, Really.
R.C. Sproul Jr. once appropriately noted that the topic of abortion is very much like the topic of hell in that if we allow ourselves to actually think about it for anything beyond the briefest of moments, it will drive us mad. The horrors of hell and abortion, when seriously contemplated in an honest, inquisitive […]
Who owns America? (Hint: Not “We the People”.)
Who owns America? Contrary to popular ‘Merican belief, the correct answer is not “We the People”. (See: We the people…are not God.) The correct answer is Christ. While that is the correct answer, it is not at this time in ‘Merican history a particularly popular answer, even (and often especially) among many self-identified “conservative Christians” […]
What if Christians are most responsible for our wrecked culture?
Like a kid who desperately wants to ignore the increasingly clear meaning of increasingly bad report cards, American “Christians” have been conditioned to give themselves a million fantastically childish ways out – a never-ending list of reasons to dismiss any and all reports of their persistent failure and betrayal of both the culture in which they’ve been placed and the Lord they […]
Why “Christians” throw Christians under the bus…and then run ’em over.
Leonard Ravenhill once said, “If Jesus had preached the same message that ministers preach today, He would never have been crucified.” This is something to think about as we live in a very proud America defined by three things: A population overwhelmingly comprised of professing Christians. . A landscape dotted by thousands and thousands of often very well […]
It’s all fun and games…’til someone actually defines Christianity.
I’m a Christian. You’re a Christian. Practically everybody in America is a Christian. Naturally then, this makes practically every politician in America a Christian (Barack Obama, George H.W. Bush, and Bill Clinton included, of course). Just ask ’em. When they respond by saying that they’re a Christian, that can only mean one thing: They’re a […]
Easy Button Christianity…the Devil’s (and most Americans’) favorite kind.
If there’s one thing the Devil loves, it’s “easy Christianity”. Fortunately for him, America loves it, too. Easy Christianity is our favorite kind of Christianity. While there are many varied ideas as to exactly how the “easy” part is best applied to religion in America, the unifying theme of apathy- and laziness-enabling perversions of biblical Christianity is […]
Beware the “Gospel in a Bottle”
It is beautiful. It is captivating. It boasts an inspiring, powerful message presented in the most stirring of words – language more than capable of making eyes weep and chins quiver with emotion. It comforts millions with its sweet, spiritual sounding assurances of safety and salvation. And it is presented as a gateway to infinite spiritual depth…all while bobbing harmlessly on […]
Man-Centered Love: Nicely Escorting People to Hell
Remember when phony niceness was a repugnant thing? These days, it’s become standard operating procedure in much of the church, and with predictably catastrophic results. In our surrender to the new love and our fear of its right-hand hatchet-man, the dreaded “unloving” tag, we have thickly seeded our own lands with mines and built barricades […]
Candy Christianity: America’s Favorite Counterfeit Gospel
Our pews are full, but our heads are empty. Our spirits starve for truth. Perhaps these pews are full because our heads are empty, having been spoon-fed a gospel of convenience, ease and worldly accommodation. The hollow theology pouring forth from American pulpits today may have attracted quite a crowd, but for the most […]
My, what a lovely picture of Satan you have there!
[Note: As the title and content of this article should make plain, the above is not a picture of Jesus Christ.] The above gem of a meme-starter-wannabe was spotted on Facebook a little while back, so I set it aside and admired it for a while before sharing it with you fine folks here. In this rendition […]
