Where My Death Went

"The Gospel is that Christ has suffered the full wrath of God for my sin," J.D. Greear writes near the outset of the third chapter of the book Gospel. It's an affront to the sensibilities of our day and place to think that God has "wrath," much less that we deserve it. And yet the... Continue Reading →

For Shame

I used to not believe in a young earth. And I remember why. It wasn't scientific evidence to the contrary. No, I remember. I remember it well. I can recall walking through the Creation Museum here in the Cincinnati area because some Christian friends of my father took a few of us and being so... Continue Reading →

And he sent them to Bethlehem and said, 'Go and search carefully for the Child; and when you have found Him, report to me, so that I too may come and worship Him.' After hearing the king, they went... Continue Reading →

Be Of Good Fear

It's worth noting how many times in the Christmas story people are told not to fear. Gabriel appears to Mary and says it, implying she must have looked scared. I would have, too. Angels don't look like babies with wings. Read Ezekiel. And an army of angels, a "host," blisters the night sky over a... Continue Reading →
