This truth is very plain throughout Scripture. Proverbs 21:1 The king’s heart is like channels of water in the … Continue reading Divine Sovereignty and World War III
If you follow the news, you may have noticed an interesting phenomenon. The more progressive/left-leaning someone is, the more strident and uncompromising they are in advocating for their beliefs, to the point that they prefer to shut down those who disagree; rather than have a reasonable discussion. Some of this can, no doubt, be ascribed … Continue reading Conscience and the Left’s Moral Posturing
This has been bugging me for a while, but I’ve had trouble putting it into words until lately.

Our desire that a famous person would really be one of us can blind us to warning signs that … Continue reading How to Evaluate Christian Celebrities
For years, futurists, techies and sci-fi writers have looked forward to the day when robots would work alongside humans, and replace us in dirty, dangerous jobs. From looking at the Boston Dynamics YouTube channel (which is really cool), it would appear that day is not far off. As cool as the advent of robot workers … Continue reading Robots are cool, but are they people?
The gift of tongues is, quite possibly, the most misunderstood of the apostolic gifts in scripture. The general impression in the church today is that the gift of tongues is the ability to speak unintelligible ecstatic utterances that are incomprehensible to those listening. Typically, proponents will characterize this as a ‘private prayer language’, ‘angelic language’ … Continue reading Tongues: What Is It and Is It Available Today?
