A Question for a Roman Catholic Theologian

You know what’s absent from any book of the Bible outside of the Gospels? Mary. If Mary is intended to be such a central part of the Christian life, if she intercedes for us and works for us and cares for us and we’re supposed to pray to her, why is her name not anywhere... Continue Reading →

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 →

A Healthy Christian

   2 observations: 1) I almost never meet a healthy Christian who isn't plugged in to a local church. 2) Almost every time I meet someone who claims Christ but is not involved in any local church there turns out to be some fairly noteworthy sin or lack of spiritual growth going on in the person's life.  ...

45 Seconds On the Bible

A Confession for Good

I got sucked in to the TV show M*A*S*H* when I was a teenager. That's not the confession. Well, not entirely anyway. I had never really had a cause, up to that point. Then I found this show on satellite TV at about sixteen, and I became mesmerized by the lead character Hawkeye's sarcastic, unwavering... Continue Reading →

Church Love

I'm going to ask you for something in a minute. But let me set the stage, first. Guys, let those of us who have been saved by grace through faith in Jesus and who are parts of local churches love the Christians whom God has bound us together with. Let's care for our fellow church... Continue Reading →
