History Says Jesus Rose from the Dead

Friday, April 10th, 2015

Some like to frame the resurrection of Jesus as though it is a theological belief and not a historical event, but even based on the most conservative historical investigation, we must say that the tomb previously housing a doubtlessly dead Jesus was empty, and that people who before knew Him well saw and met someone […]

What It All Comes Down To

Friday, March 27th, 2015

What does everything come down to?  Everything.  Everything.  Everything comes down to whether you believe in Jesus Christ or not.  God places almost all importance on believing in Jesus Christ.  From our perspective, you could say it is everything.  If we were to think through all the possibilities of what could be that important, perhaps […]

Eyewitness Accounts for Jesus

Saturday, February 28th, 2015

This week I was asked about an eyewitness evidence of the Gospels.  I referred to Luke 1:1, 1 John 1:1,3, and 2 Peter 1:16, which all speak of eyewitness testimony. Then the Gospels read like it too—the accounts corroborate with one another, but are not copying one another, so they read eyewitness, which wouldn’t be […]

One Cure

Saturday, January 17th, 2015

A few years ago up in Sacramento I was talking to a man who did not like the biblical truth of one way of salvation.  He wouldn’t take one way of salvation unless there were several ways.  There is only one way.  That’s the truth.  I asked the man if he was against there being […]

Why Isn’t It More Clear?

Saturday, December 6th, 2014

Maybe sometimes you wonder why Christianity can’t be respectable to the world.  Why can’t the world just see that the Bible is the truth?  What makes this so hard?  Why couldn’t God have made it easier for them?  Even in Jesus’ time on earth, it would seem, wouldn’t it, that then it would have been […]

In Him We Move

Saturday, October 18th, 2014

As I typed this, I was thinking of the ability to move, and how we can take that for granted.  You know that as we get older, it becomes more difficult to move for various reasons.  And usually it’s not going to get any easier.  As it becomes more and more difficult, you could become […]

My Life to Control

Saturday, October 4th, 2014

As I prepared to write this, the first thought that came to my head was from a song that was written about 30-40 years ago, that begins: “My life Lord is yours to control, I give you my heart and my soul, Not my will, yours ever mine….”  It’s a song, but like a lot […]

Family In God’s Kingdom

Friday, August 1st, 2014

How does family fit into the scheme of God’s kingdom? God created male and female to glorify God in the context of a one flesh or marriage. The marriage procreates children, and sanctifying, God-glorifying, saving truth is passed down from one generation to the next. This populates, builds up, the future kingdom of God. Family […]

Jesus’ Resurrection in Extra-Scriptural History

Saturday, April 26th, 2014

There is more testimony to the resurrection of Jesus Christ than any ancient historical event. Just an ordinary historian, Josephus, in Antiquities of the Jews, Book 18, Chapter 3, 3, wrote: “About this time there lived Jesus, a wise man, if indeed one ought to call him a man. For he was one who performed […]

That Birth Is Christmas

Saturday, December 21st, 2013

God created the world. It was good. All of it was good. He created man and man was good. It was not good that man was alone, but God created woman and it was good. God said don’t eat of a tree. Man and woman ate of the tree. Sin entered into the world. The […]
