But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Senator Sasse nails it . . . again

Our public square is plagued by habitual, brazen lying. This isn’t entirely new — there have always been some politicians who lied — but I do not believe this country can long survive if the public concedes in advance that people in government do not need to be

The Third and Final in a Series of Sermons on the Book of Jude

The epistle of Jude may be short, but it is packed.  In the span of just 25 verses, Jude manages to remind those reading/hearing this letter of a received body of doctrine (“the faith once for all delivered”) which came to them directly from the apostles

The Second in a Series on the Book of Jude

What was a typical sermon like in the apostolic age?  How did those men identified with the apostolic circle preach?  In verses 5-16 of the Epistle of Jude we find such a sermon (or at least a portion of such a sermon) which serves as the main body of Jude’s short epistle.  Citing from

The First in a Series of Sermons on the Epistle of Jude

It should get our attention when we are reminded of the number and gravity of the warnings to the churches found in the New Testament concerning the threat of false doctrine and false teachers.  In the Epistle of Jude, we learn of churches which have been secretly infiltrated by

The Seventh and Final in a Series of Sermons on 2 Peter

Knowing that his life was likely drawing to a close, the Apostle Peter arranged for the composition of the brief epistle we know as 2 Peter.  Part sermon, part letter, there is a profound sense of urgency about Peter’s second letter.  In it, the Apostle makes three key

The Sixth in a Series of Sermons on 2 Peter

Peter has lambasted those false teachers and prophets who were secretly introducing destructive heresies into the churches, and then leading people away from Christ so as to indulge the lusts of the flesh.  As Peter has told his readers, the chief heresy being taught by these false teachers and

The Fifth in a Series of Sermons on 2 Peter

In the first three verses of chapter two of his Second Epistle, Peter warns the churches that false teachers will arise throughout the course of the age and disrupt the church.  They will do so until Jesus comes back a second time–which is, ironically, a doctrine which the false teachers

It is not a question of if, but a matter of when.  False teachers and false prophets have come, they will come, and they will continually seek to introduce destructive heresies until the Lord returns.  In his 2nd Epistle–which is Peter’s “testament,” i.e., his final

The Third in a Series of Sermons on 2 Peter

Peter is writing to warn those reading his second epistle of serious doctrinal error in the churches.  Knowing that he does not have long to live, Peter leaves us with his testament (this epistle).  In extending to us his final words, Peter includes an exhortation that Christians must strive to

The Second in a Series of Sermons on 2 Peter

There is a reason why Peter’s second epistle and the small book of Jude are not well-known, or widely read and preached upon in the churches.  In both these letters, we find emphatic warnings about false teachers and the dangers of false doctrine they spread.  For those who embrace the
