REVILING CHRISTIAN FUNDAMENTALISM

In every era, some group must be especially singled out for hatred and ridicule. Some group must serve as the butt of our jokes. Some group must be blamed for our troubles. Some group must be identified as the enemy of the state. In this era, that group is Christian Fundamentalists. A Personal Story I …

A Dialogue: The Trustworthiness of Sacred Scripture

The dialogue here is an exchange between myself and Fr. Casey, who is a Catholic personality with a Youtube Channel called "Breaking in the Habit." As many of the readers here know, as a trained historian, I thought the video was a generalized view on the historicity of the Exodus with dated talking points on …

Failing Forward is not the Gospel

When is it alright to speak things in God’s name that He hasnt said? When is it alright to misuse the name of God and speak of a different Gospel than that of Christ Crucified? Answer: Its never alright to break the second commandment. Yet, so many do it, either in a pulpit, a stage, or on the internet. The goal of this post is to help you to see that just because someone says something about God doesn’t always mean it’s true. Go to the biblical text and read it in context. Always keeping your eyes on Christ because He is what the Bible is about (John 5:39)

Today I will be discussing an article in the Christian Post, the article can be found here. The article is titled:

The Bible heroes who fell forward

ByGreg Laurie, CP Contributor

I’m going to show my hand a bit early on this post. As I read this article it seemed very much like most American Evangelical sermons. There was little scripture, there was mention of something that we aren’t doing and motivation to do that something better, and no mention of repenting of sins, Christ Crucified for those sins, and a life lived in daily repentant faith.

The New Testament book of Hebrews includes a collection of great heroes of the faith, men and women whom God used and blessed. I find that interesting, because those people messed up. They weren’t perfect examples.But the funny thing is that chapter 11 of Hebrews mentions only their victories…

What Happens When Youtube Theologians Make Historic claims?

I'm curious when clerics or theologians make authoritative historical arguments what exactly are their credentials to make these historic claims? Perhaps, Fr. Casey has a degree in History; however, by the video, his presentation appears second hand. Fr. Casey even presents the 600,000 men argument against the Exodus narrative, which as someone trained as a …

Matthew 3:1-12

Christians often times get the word “Repentance” confused. They might think, as the world does, that Repentance is a one time act, a vow to God, an inner change that the Christian makes to better themselves. That to repent means to start to activate God’s blessings in your life, or to be the best you that you can be. Yet, this is all a false repentance. Check out this post on ArmourofChrist.org to see how John the Baptist and Jesus defines the Word “Repent”.

False repentance is to die. Dead trees cannot being forth food fruit and therefore dead chaff is only good for burning. Yet, true repentance is life by faith. Faith is the gift of life given to you that always bears good fruit. This wheat, this living plant, is nourishes and living by the waters of baptism.

Matthew 3

1In those days, John the Baptizer came, preaching in the wilderness of Judea, saying, 2“Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!” 3For this is he who was spoken of by Isaiah the prophet, saying, “The voice of one crying in the wilderness, make the way of the Lord ready! Make his paths straight!”(Isaiah 40:3) 4Now John himself wore clothing made of camel’s hair with a leather belt around his waist. His food was locusts and wild honey. 5Then people from Jerusalem, all of Judea, and…

Religion in the Soviet Union: What Culture’s Literature Can Explain about its Society. Part 3 of 3

The Soviet Union was not a nation that cared too much for dissenters of its engineered state philosophy of communism. In fact, when Boris Pasternak attempted to get his book Doctor Zhivago published by Novy Mir they rejected the title claiming that the “author’s point of view was incompatible with the spirit of the revolution and the …

The following is a post suggestion received via email.

I have received a comment via email from John. John has a comment on my recent blog post ‘Porn Addiction; Here is your Cure‘. If you haven’t read that post yet then I recommend you do so as it will help shine some light on our discussion. Also, if you have a comment or a suggestion that you want featured in an upcoming post send them to me via the Contact page. John writes…

I saw your recent post on pornography and I was struck by the statement`You cannot be a Christian and be addicted to porn.’ I emphasise that this not anything that interests me: I am not, never have been and never will be addicted to this. But there is the whole business of being a Christian and sin. As I indicate at the beginning of my…
