Identifying the Spirit of Antichrist

Identifying the Spirit of Antichrist

Many believe the Antichrist will be a literal, global leader but the spirit of Antichrist already permeates the world with its corrosive influence. We need keen spiritual discernment to recognize and resist it. Jesus warned that the number one sign indicating His soon...
Why Violence Is Not the Answer

Why Violence Is Not the Answer

Like many Americans, I was appalled by and ashamed of what transpired in Washington DC as protesters stormed the capitol. It was an ugly and sad day for America and a bad look to the rest of the world. I love our country deeply and it grieves me to see the hatred and...

Strength in the Struggle

We all like the easy button. We all want 2021 to be easier, better, and more normal than 2020. Last year brought a lot of challenges, changes, interruptions, and inconveniences (masks, long lines, higher prices, shortages of food, money, and other products). There was...

When God Put Himself in a Box

When God Put Himself in a Box

We often say “don’t put God in a box” but, ironically, He put Himself in one for over 800 years! What we mean by that phrase is to take the limits off of God and give Him freedom to work as He sees fit. God didn’t confine Himself inside a box completely, but for...
The Shepherd and Sheep Analogy

The Shepherd and Sheep Analogy

You can read Psalms 23 in thirty seconds. David’s masterpiece is only six verses long, yet it contains a treasure trove of spiritual truth. Sadly, we usually only hear it read at funerals or quoted as a crutch in a crisis. Many Scriptures allude to the shepherd/sheep...
How Jesus Responded to Racism

How Jesus Responded to Racism

Jesus went out of His way to break down racial barriers. The racism He confronted was between Jews, Samaritans, and Gentiles. There was even a racial rivalry among the Jews (Judeans derided Galileans and Galileans disdained Nazarenes). This is evident by how Nathaniel...
8 Reasons Jesus Preached in Parables

8 Reasons Jesus Preached in Parables

Jesus was a master storyteller. He communicated clearly by using many stories, analogies, and metaphors. Parables have been used since ancient times to convey truth in a memorable way. While Jesus didn’t invent the parabolic method of teaching, He perfected it....
