The Song of God: What Greek Mythology Can Teach Us About God’s Holiness

If you are familiar with Greek mythology and epics, you have probably heard of the siren. In Greek epics, sirens were dangerous creatures, who lured nearby sailors to their deaths with enchanting music and singing voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island. In the Greek epic The Odyssey, Odysseus orders his men …

Stop grandstanding when pastors cancel services

On Friday, March 13th, President Donald Trump declared a national state of emergency to release federal funds in the fight against coronavirus. Since, we have seen numerous postponements, closings, and cancellations from sports to business. This rapid progression in response to coronavirus has halted the world and US economy. With everything else considered, pastors have …

The Lousy Excuse for Why Churches Don’t Grow

Growing up we’ve always heard that the Truth makes us free, but we’ve also heard people don’t actually want to hear Truth. Truth in this sense is speaking of the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. I want to counter a position that is so widespread, but seems largely grounded in assumption. Here is the lousy …

Time to give Christian Persecution as much coverage as Climate Change

Think about this. How much have you heard about climate change in the last 10 years? Now, how much have you heard about Christian persecution in the last 10 years? Do the two come close to comparison? Probably not. Democrat presidential nominees are vying to see who can be most proactive and ‘woke’ on climate …

OPINION: It’s open season on conservatives – there’s no forgiveness for us

I really try not to get too political with the things I post on the site or on my personal Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. However, the recent rescinding of Kyle Kashuv’s admission to Harvard should terrify us – especially in light of the Virginia governor still being in office. If you don’t know what I’m …

Respect and Love: Why marriage is looked at wrong in the 21st Century?

Marriage is a wonderful thing – to most of the world. In recent years, we’ve seen an attack that defines marriage as misogynistic and archaic. The reality is quite different – or at least should be – in the Christian world. I will not be taking aim at same-sex marriage for this issue, but I …

The Gay, Lost Sheep

One of the hottest topics in Christianity today is the LGBTQ+ community. The conversations range from accepting them for who they are to they are damned to hell with no hope of repentance. Somewhere in the middle are the Christians who make sense of how to approach the topic. Neither extreme is right. As ambassadors …

“I Prophesy” – the Office of Prophet and Where It Went in These Last Days

Many times the new and upcoming generation always gets so much hassle about being unlearned and in-depth at life.  There are many fads that come and go, many which have been forgotten. Thank God the disco age has passed and Bellbottom pants are a thing of the past. Disco will never come back – I …

Why I disagree with a global warming doomsday – A biblical perspective

Some of you may have read Daily Mail’s article about doomsday global warming. That article spurred me to think about my stance on the doomsday predictions of global warming from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and scientists. AOC said that we have twelve years. According to the Existential Climate-related security risk, we have until about 2050. Aside from …

HOT TAKE: Satan is not responsible for sin

Someone mentioned to me that craving tattoos was possibly demonic. As far as “craving” tattoos, it’s silly to imply it’s wholly demonic. They coupled “craving” and “obsession” together. (To clarify, I do not advocate for tattoos. I do not have any, and Lord permitting, I will not have any.) It’s just human nature. They like …

The Conversation of Cross and Christ

Last week, I read in a devotional that the cross Jesus is said to have carried weighed approximately 300 pounds. Even if he simply carried the cross section, it was tied to his arms and rubbing against raw flesh that had minutes prior been ripped to shreds by a whip. We know Jesus was a …
