It is shocking to see in our Western culture a worldview that “progresses” by way of lies into moral chaos and human tragedy. Expressed with studied ambiguity, these lies anesthetize the next generation to the only true morality on which genuine human culture can survive. Journalist William Smith notes the fall-out: The present cultural conflict […]
When I came to the States in 1964, the great enemy of the Christian Faith was Marxism, with “Commies behind every bush.” My wife recently told me that as a child she would lie awake at night worrying that she would give up her faith when persecuted by godless Soviet commissars. In 1966 at Seminary, […]
At Christmas we celebrate a purely Two-ist joy: The Word, who exists outside and apart from creation as its Creator, took on flesh in order to save His people from their sins. But if One-ism were reality, what would we have to celebrate during this time of “Winter Holidays”?
Marxists state that “everything is political.” While incorrectly emphasizing the political, they rightly see that everything in human experience is related in some way to everything else. The implications of this logic are becoming obvious in the contemporary United States. The religious beliefs of the original founders about the nature of reality determined the political […]
Many of us go to blockbuster sci-fi movies simply to be entertained, for the special effects and the thrill of the ride. We don’t go to think. If thrills and effects are the gold-standard, Avatar is Fort Knox. It’s the ultimate I-Max experience: gorgeously filmed in 3-D, loaded with exciting action, wowing the imagination. Christians […]
(Audio Lecture) Identity from Within or from the Mind of Christby Joshua Gielow | April 17, 2020
Dr. Butterfield gives a brilliant analysis of how Christ delivers people caught in the practice of homosexuality, by putting to death the works of the flesh, including the attempt falsely to justify “celibate” homosexual desire as pleasing to God, and by embracing God’s creational truth for his glory and our good. The culture’s definition of […]
Shifting Sandsby Dr. Peter Jones | April 10, 2020
“Lord, what are you saying during this crisis?” That is the question on every Christian’s mind. The mighty, miniscule virus is slaying thousands every day. On March 29th, Dr. Anthony Fauci estimated that the US might see between 100,000 and 200,000 deaths before the crisis fades. Christians must yet remain calm, asking God to give us […]
An Elephant Called Fearby Rebecca Jones | April 8, 2020
But if we are to chase the elephant of fear out of our churches, we must allow God to face it down through the power of his love. “God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but of love, of power, and of a strong mind” (2 Timothy 1:7). If we are to face down the elephant of fear, we must do it by absorbing God’s forgiveness. “Perfect love casts out fear, because fear has to do with punishment” (1 John 4:18).
Spirituality: Mindfulness or the Mind of Christby Joshua Gielow | March 23, 2020
Mrs. Pamela Frost gives a most useful and dense comparative contrast between pagan “Mindfulness” and “the Mind of Christ,” showing clearly how the Mind of Christ distinguishes between the Creator and creation, while Mindfulness blurs distinctions and leads people into the pagan lie of “nonduality.” Eastern spiritualties work against having our minds set on Christ. The […]
