Read the sermon entitled “Rediscovering Lost Values” delivered by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at Second Baptist Church in Detroit, MI on February 28, 1954.
Without the truth of God revealed by the Holy Spirit and proclaimed under the power of the Holy Spirit by believers, the Church will continue its decline.
Brian Myers: Everything man thinks he knows, everything he thinks he has learned, will be skewed if the starting point for that knowledge is not God.
It is time for us to get real and make sure our actions and words align with biblical truth. Remember, God’s truth is not relative and is not conformed to the world we live in. It doesn’t change with the times and isn’t modified to fit with what the world tells us is acceptable.
When a nation turns from God it no longer seeks the absolute truth, but rather prefers to make its own truth to fit whatever it wants.
Reading something Justin Taylor wrote a few days ago that quotes G.K. Chesterton from his book Orthodoxy, reminded me of a blog post I wrote 2 1/2 years ago that I thought I’d rehash with a couple of changes because it’s pretty timeless… Humility is a good thing, a necessary thing. G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936) in […]
There are a lot of people who agree with this statement – “All religions are equally true and valid.” Some dismiss doctrine as unimportant and say these religions are equal. But we know there are clear differences in major points of doctrine among the major world religions. For instance, Christians believe that Jesus is God […]
State Representative Rod Roberts (R-Carroll) one of the three remaining Republican candidates in the Iowa Gubernatorial race found himself in the midst of a controversy over the weekend and yesterday as a result of a statement he made about moral law during an interview with The Des Moines Register’s editorial board. We sat down to […]
This post’s title describes, in my opinion, what we see in much of “progressive” Christianity or the religious left if you will. So I wanted to share the passage below from the great British Pastor Charles Spurgeon who it would seem was writing for our day, don’t you think? I cannot endure false doctrine, however […]

I really think that British writer and apologist G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936) could look into the future when he said the following: Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions. Amazing how many think truth is determined by popular vote or what popular culture seems to think. That truth is determined by what […]
In his work The Abolition of Man, C.S. Lewis tackles the abolishment of teaching virtue. Which was a primary function of education (be it formal or informal). Lewis writes: St Augustine defines virtue as ordo amoris, the ordinate condition of the affections in which every object is accorded that kind of degree of love which […]
Definitely not a P.C. message, this video is from a message that John MacArthur gave two years ago during the National Day of Prayer service at Woodmen Valley Chapel in Colorado Springs, CO. Thoughts?
I went to see Josh McDowell at Walnut Creek Community Church. During his talk he mentioned that only 9% of evangelical youth, youth who have said, “I have personally trusted Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. If I were to die today, I know I would go to heaven because He is my Savior and […]

An objection that I hear often from those who are outside the faith is “you are being intolerant when you claim that Jesus Christ is the only way to God R.C. Sproul in his book Reasons to Believe said something very insightful. Moses could meditate on the law; Muhammad could brandish a sword; Buddha could […]
