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

Radically Christian - Apologetic Report

Jeremiah prophesied, and later witnessed, the destruction of Jerusalem. He had the unpleasant task of warning the people of Jerusalem that their enemies were going to win. His neighbors hated him for his message of doom and gloom. In fact, they very much wanted to put him to death for his lack of...

Where Does the Bible Talk About the Trinity?

Written by

The doctrine of the Trinity is the idea that there is only one God and God has always existed as three distinct persons, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Though the word, “Trinity” is not found in our Bibles, the question remains, is the idea of a triune God a biblical idea? Can we...

As I read the sixty-six chapters of Isaiah yesterday, it occurred to me that to understand Jesus this is where a person needs to begin. Sadly, many of us do not understand our own Lord because we do not see him in light of Isaiah’s prophecies. Oh, we know Isaiah 53, “He was pierced for...

Matthew 7:1 Re-Examined: Judge Not, Lest Ye Be Judged

Written by

Jesus preached, in the Sermon on the Mount, “Judge not, that ye be not judged” (Matthew 7:1, KJV). But what did He mean by that? Did He mean His followers should never criticize someone else’s behavior? Did He mean we should all just “mind our own business”? How can we...

Yesterday I read the book of Kings (1 and 2 Kings). It is a tremendous and heartbreaking story. But most importantly, it is a story which we must know if we are going to understand what it means to be a part of the kingdom of God. Jesus’ story has a backstory and so much of it can be found in...

“Paul, Apostle of Christ” Movie Review

Racism is Still a Problem, but There is a Solution

Written by

I’ve debated over and over again whether or not to write this post because problems that lie just beneath the surface are difficult issues to address. Some people will think I’m stirring up unnecessary strife by sharing examples of racism I’ve seen. “Why do you have to bring...

When someone became king in Israel, a priest would pour oil on that man’s head and he would then be known as the Lord’s “anointed.” The Hebrew word for “anointed” is “messiah.” So this is the story of two messiahs, Saul and David. When I started this B...

When I was a kid, I loved the book of Judges. It was full of violence and gore. There were tent pegs, strong men, lions, death, and destruction. I loved it. It made me think God would be an awesome movie director. Unfortunately, I was reading the book of Judges all wrong. The book of Judges is...

En Hechos 2:38 Pedro le dijo a una multitud de personas, “Arrepentíos, y bautícese cada uno de vosotros en el nombre de Jesucristo para perdón de los pecados; y recibiréis el don del Espíritu Santo”. La pregunta que vamos a considerar hoy es la...
