I was contacted last week by a pastor asking this question and thought there might be others asking it also. The most helpful advice I ever received about preaching at a funeral for someone I didn’t know is: “Don’t preach them into heaven. Don’t preach them into hell. Just preach the gospel for the people who are there.” This principle captures our…Continue

Since the Gospel message is based on the death, burial, and Resurrection of Christ, many have wondered how people who lived prior to the Incarnation of Christ could have been saved.
In a culture where God’s Word is constantly under attack from those both inside and outside of the church, we must always be…Continue

If there were a world record for the “number of times asking Jesus into your heart,” I’m pretty sure I would hold it. I’ve probably “prayed the prayer” more than five thousand times. Every time was sincere, but I was never quite sure I had gotten it right. Had I really been sorry enough for my sin that time around? Some wept rivers of tears when they got…Continue

Most people know that the word Gospel means “good news”. But what exactly is the Good News?
Well, Jesus himself is the Good News. When He came to earth as a man, the last Adam (1 Corinthians 15:45), He came to fulfill the law of the old covenant, and pay the price for the sins of man. Our sins have their roots in the first Adam, but it is through the…Continue

Fifty Shades of Grey releases in major theaters this Friday, not surprisingly — and yet ironically — just a day before our annual celebration of love. The series of erotic novels exploring sexual domination and even violence (tragically) has sold over 100 million copies and has been translated into 52 languages. Yes, America has exported these scenes…Continue

The largest segment of the organized Church has long opposed the teaching that salvation is by grace, through faith alone. She teaches that it is by grace, through faith and good works, protesting that we do not place the proper stress on good works, and that she does place as much emphasis upon grace and faith as we.
One advocate of this religious denomination agrees that men cannot be saved without Christ or faith or grace, but objects that the grace of God, accepted by faith in…Continue

I want to share with you from a testimony of someone who was saved, someone who had been serving the devil. And when that man gave his testimony, it so challenged me, I did not want to believe it. I had to go ten days before the Lord in fasting, asking Him, "Lord, is this true?" And it was at that time the Lord began to teach me what happens in the…Continue

Having provided my disclaimer—
Have you ever been in a “should women be allowed to preach, teach men, be the pastor of a church?” conversation?
Yes. Yes you have. We all have.…Continue

4 But—“When God our Savior revealed his kindness and love, 5 he saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit. 6 He generously poured out the Spirit upon us through Jesus Christ our Savior. 7 Because of his grace he declared us righteous and gave us confidence that we will inherit eternal life.”…
