Willow Creek Confession: The Signature of a False Prophet

By now we have all heard of the great confession of Willow Creek and how they failed to accurately hear the voice of the Lord.

What is a Christian Humanist

It Is Time for Christians to Get Their Heads Out of the Sand

Many of us have seen the change coming, in the Church, but ignored it for one reason or another. Mostly we just like going along with the flow of things and not draw fire by coming out in the open and speaking about the obvious. Once you take a stand or give your opinion on […]

First Works

When I hold the inspired Word of God along side of what I see displayed as Christianity today I don’t see a match, that is unless I look at the Pharisees, or the Sadducees. I see something different, something contrived or manufactured to represent the original; more of a simulation or replica, but not the […]

Why the Prophet’s Weren’t Heard

(An Adaptation of a Message by T. Austin-Sparks) Acts 13:27 The people of Jerusalem and their rulers did not recognize Jesus, yet in condemning him they fulfilled the words of the prophets that are read every Sabbath. Hos 14:9 Who is wise? He will realize these things. Who is discerning? He will understand them. The […]

Adversity in the Lord

I write things, not because I have all the answers, or that I am living up to the standard that God has set before me, but because I must know the truth and I need to hear the truth. “What should be our attitude in adversity?” I say this because I need to hear it, […]
