Texting Romans 5:14

   Just in case it'd be helpful, I'm passing along my answers to some questions someone texted me about the Romans 5:14.  The person was reading the NIV translation of it.   Happy Monday! Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by... Continue Reading →


60 Seconds On Men and Women

   You honor neither women nor their Maker by treating them as if they are identical to men.  Men and women are both made in the image of God, both reflect His beauty and glory, and (if believers in Jesus) are both co-heirs of eternal life.   But they are not identical.   A husband...

The Boy Mattered More

It's a profound moral failure to think that an animal's life is just as precious as a human's.  It is not.  While both have value, they are not equal values. Let me summarize my argument in three simple sentences: An animal's life matters to God.   A human's matters much more.  Therefore, it was right... Continue Reading →

30 Seconds on Work

   If work is about trying to prove yourself, you'll never be really content or happy with it. But if it's about diligently trying to bring beauty out of and order to creation?

Things That Are Beautiful

Some things that are beautiful, wonderful, splendid, though you will find people in almost every segment of our culture who don't think so: -People who proclaim the Gospel of Jesus' salvation by grace through faith in Him (Isaiah 52:7, Romans 10:15). -A gentle wife who Christfully submits to her husband (1 Peter 3:1-6, Ephesians 5:22-24)....

Jesus on the Old Testament

Our God is a miraculous and fiery God. He built the universe, fashioned a man from dust and love, and is holy enough that four unimaginable creatures flying around his throne don’t find eternity long enough to sing His praises. The God responsible for this soil and the sky above it is the God who... Continue Reading →
