All in theology

Salvation in Christ Alone

I just recently mowed my lawn. You’re probably thinking, “Big deal. You have to do that.” When I’m done mowing the lawn, I like to look out over the yard and see the even-cut, short grass and it makes me feel accomplished. It makes me feel good. My yard that was once a mess now looks good and well cared for. It is just a lawn, but I like knowing that I made it look good.

A Warning To Those Who Love Theology

In Christianity, there can be different focuses when it comes to how we express our faith and ourselves. There are those who love to serve others and be involved with helping and missions. There are those who are passionate about evangelism and/or discipleship. There are also some who love learning, studying, and theology. Most likely many are a blend of these things. 

3 Reminders from the Rain

It’s been an extremely wet winter in Kentucky—not snow—rain. Just when you think the rain is over, it starts again. It recently has started flooding. We’re over-saturated. People have been making memes, jokes, and threats to move. God promised to never destroy humanity again by flooding the earth, but He didn’t make any promises about Kentucky.

Putting the "Just Us" in Justice

As I begin, let me say that I've got a simple mind. Things may seem more simple to me than to others. I've also been trying to keep up as best I can with this topic. I've read many articles by Thabite, I've listened to James White talk a lot on the Dividing Line, I've read articles by Tom Ascol, and I'm currently reading and reviewing Woke Church by Eric Mason. I've read other articles by other people, I've listened to the MLK50 conference, and I attended Together for the Gospel. I'm not an expert, but I'm trying.

Grace and Gratitude

The question I want to pose is why do you behave morally? There is no doubt that for some the reward of heaven is what motivates them to try and obey God. For others, it is the fear of hell. In fact, I think for many years I called myself a Christian and tried to obey God because I didn't want to go to hell. 

Grow Smaller

I’ve seen it or head about it too many times. Someone new comes into an already overcrowded Sunday School class or small group only to feel overwhelmed and left out. Their chances of pushing through aren’t high. If they’re an introvert, they won’t feel like it’s worth the effort. If they’re an extrovert, they may fight a bit, but will eventually feel unneeded. Discipleship sacrificed because of either a push for numbers or a lack of trained, confident leaders.

Stay Hitched to the Old Testament

It's recently come up that the Old Testament is something Christians shouldn't worry about or be too concerned with. It was said that really what makes Christianity is Jesus and His death and resurrection. The Old Testament was for the Jews. We've got Jesus! Why worry about it?
