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

“It all comes down to one thing: our message is a person. We proclaim a person, not a dogma, a rule, or even a religion. Our message is a conversation that has an individual at its core. We are talking about Jesus. We are praising Jesus. We are exalting Jesus.

“In Colossians 1:28 Paul summarized the purpose of his ministry in this

Guilt-Tripping Evangelists

Written by

I love street evangelism, but we street evangelists seem to be prone to look down on other believers for not engaging in that kind of ministry. It’s as if street evangelism, for some, is the only way to do evangelism, and if one isn’t doing street evangelism, one’s salvation is questioned. While methodology is not the subject of

While many churches seeks to make these people as comfortable in their sin as possible, and use every worldly means to bring them through their

A Friendly Note to the Christian Facebook Police Featured

Written by

Recently on Facebook I have noticed a few folks suggest one can judge other Christians’ priorities based on the content they post on Facebook. The assertions go somewhat like this:

  • Should we be speaking about the Gospel or politics on Facebook?
  • It is hard to tell what some people’s real focus is on – politics or the Gospel?

Heaven’s Flower – the T.U.L.I.P.

Two weeks ago on twitter, I began a series of tweets accompanied by the hashtag #Calvinism101. I love the doctrines of grace (often referred to as “Calvinsm), and I love proclaiming them. I do so because they represent what the Bible reveals about God and His sovereign work in redemption. I

I follow Calvin…I follow Apollos…I follow Paul. Featured

Charles Spurgeon was unapologetic in his view of Calvinism. Such was Spurgeon’s conviction that he equated it with the Gospel. Now, a context is needed, of course, so let’s have a look:

Not a victim image, though images of babies inside and outside the womb are also helpful.

Christian, You are the Light of the World Featured

Don’t do that.

Right after Jesus identifies His disciples as the salt of the earth, He identifies them as the light of the world:

You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light
