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

John 6 and The Last Supper

Written by
It is imperative to recognize that John 6 does not deal directly with the Last Supper, or with the breaking of the bread. That’s worth repeating. John chapter 6 has nothing to do with the Last Supper! … John deals with the Last Supper starting in chapter 13, but chapter 6 is a separate...

The Old Cross vs The New Cross

Written by
If I see aright, the cross of popular evangelicalism is not the cross of the New Testament. It is, rather, a new bright ornament upon the bosom of a self-assured and carnal Christianity. The old cross condemned; the new cross amuses. The old cross destroyed confidence in the flesh; the new cross...

Some Recommended Good Reading

Who was St. Patrick, and should Christians celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?  Patrick was a “proto-protestant,” and not a Catholic.  I used to wear an orange shirt to work on St. Patty’s Day, with a British Union Jack on the pocket!

I used to subscribe to Media Spotlight Magazine, but over the years I found the author to be often too legalistic, and sometimes teaching some aberrant ideas (and I even communicated with him about the problems).  However, his special reports were excellent.  These are the five I have...

Personal Bible Notes: Romans

Written by
Refer to my9/25/18 post about the margin notes in my Bible, and why I decided to share them on this blog.

Are You a Victim of Deceitful Schemers?

Written by
The perfect spiritual victims for deceitful schemers are those with warm hearts and empty heads. The church is full of folks today who have “a zeal for God, but not in accordance with knowledge” (Rom. 10:2). They have a form of godliness but it is not biblically grounded. They are...

Playtime in the Church

Written by
Children’s ministries have for years focused on playtime and coloring; teens have been treated like large children who need to be entertained with contemporary music and a multitude of games and activities; adults are not to be bored with biblical exposition and theology. These practices stem...

Did Jesus Go to Hell?

Written by
“He Descended Into Hell”
It should read, “He descended into Hades.” We have a similar necessary correction in Acts 2:27 which is a quotation of Psalm 16:10. In the Authorized Version that is cited in the form: “Thou wilt not leave my soul in hell,” but the Revised...

Yet another book seeking a home

Written by
Back about 2002 I bought Dave Hunt’s novel, The Mind Invaders, and finally got around to reading it in 2003.  It was essentially a story using all the information from his non-fiction book, Occult Invasion, and it was really pretty good. So, I saw this book, which is a sequel to The...

Mindless Repetition

Written by
This week we made our monthly visit to a church we previously attended all the time. While the teaching is good, as is the leadership (for the most part), the music is what drove us away. Often it is played too loud, and the songs are often vacuous, or mindless, or repetitive ad nauseam. However,...

Yet Another Booklet Looking for a Home

I’m not sure when I acquired this one, since I never wrote the date on it. I began studying the whole issue of marriage, divorce, and remarriage in the mid-1990s, and it’s likely I acquired this during that time.  We had attended an LCMS church from mid-1988 to the end of November...

God’s Design for Sex

Written by
Our sexuality and our spirit are inexplicably and profoundly intertwined. We are--at our core--spirit beings, created in God’s image. So our sexuality is likewise at that same core--it must be, because we are more than animals in our nature. That is why sexuality cannot be perceived as some...

“One Flesh”

Written by
When a man and a woman come together sexually in “one flesh” (Genesis 2:24), they become a more complete expression of the infinite spectrum of God’s characteristics. This is a crucial aspect of the amazing power--the indescribable magnetism--of sex. It is meant to be a response...

The Unsaved Cannot Truly Worship God

Written by
Worship is impossible for those who are dead in trespasses and sin. If we have no knowledge of God and no faith in His Son, how can we worship Him? I must know God through His Son Jesus Christ before I can worship Him. I cringe every time I see a sign in front of a church extending an invitation to...
