The Fault In Their (Social) Gospel

As I compose this commentary, there remain segments within the American evangelical church that continue to advance and propagate the principles and tenets of the "gospel" of social justice. Increasing numbers of evangelical churches, pastors, and ministries are buying into what I consider merely a new presentation of an old soteriology: salvation by social activism. …

What If I Stumble?

"If You, Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? But there is forgiveness with You, that You may be feared." Psalm 130:4-5 (NASB) Think back for a moment to the last time someone sinned against you. I mean actually sinned against you. That is, they offended you in a way that was a violation …

A Body of One?

"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity!" - Psalm 133:1 (NASB) For most professing Christians in America, the religion we practice is such a relatively comfortable and unthreatening experience that we often are oblivious to two fundamental realities: 1) Christians exist outside our geographic boundaries, and 2) …

The One Sin You Don’t Think You’re Guilty Of, But Probably Are

Just Thinking...for Myself

“Our fathers were unwilling to be obedient to him, but repudiated him and in their hearts turned back to Egypt, saying to Aaron, ‘Make for us gods who will go before us; for this Moses who led us out of Egypt – we do not know what happened to him.’
Acts 7:39-40 (NASB)


We Christians have a proneness to want to “index” our sin.

To index our sin is to regard certain sins we commit against God, if we call them sins at all, as being worse than others. It’s like grading on a hamartiological curve. The rationale being that the consequences of certain sins and trespasses are inherently more (or less) severe depending on the nature of the offense.

The Misleading Language of the Social Justice Movement

"The concept of the black race and the white race originated with the Enemy himself. Just as he sowed seeds of doubt in the garden of Eden with his "hath God really said," he has continued through the ages to offer a lie in the place of God's truth. His attack has been anything but …
