Jesus Literally Gave a Group of Inebriated People MORE Wine

Before I start, let me say this. You absolutely should not live a life of drunkness. It is bad for your health, it is bad for your family, it is bad for your friendships, it is not what YHWH would want for your life. If you are prone to addiction, you should absolutely, positively abstain[Continue Reading…]

Words Not Found in Scripture – Worship

It’s been a very long time since I’ve done anything from the Words Not Found in Scripture series. Recently I was inspired to write a little bit about the word Worship. In today’s Christian circles Worship is usually defined as “singing” or even specifically “corporate singing”. In our modern church meetings we usually have 30[Continue Reading…]

WWJD? I don’t think you really know…

I had to head to Home Depot to pick up some stuff and I saw this sign…   When I read this I chortled for a good moment. However, as I started to think about this sign, I was deeply saddened. Saddened for the strangers who read this sign and think that Jesus is defined[Continue Reading…]

What Does the Bible Really Teach About Pre-Marital Sex?

So, a friend of mine commented on the absurdity of Jessica Simpson complaining that she hasn’t been able to marry her man yet because he keeps getting her knocked up… which made me search the scriptures and shockingly, completely changed how I saw the issue of sex before marriage! I have always been under the[Continue Reading…]

There is no Biblical Defense for Paid Pastors/Elders

I came to believe that there was no valid support or defense for paying the salary of a pastor or elder while I was at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. This was while I was training to become a vocational/paid pastor! It was through my experiences at the seminary and studying the scriptures that made me[Continue Reading…]

And a woman who has an unbelieving husband, and he consents to live with her, she must not send her husband away. For the unbelieving husband[Continue Reading…]

Does All Mean All?

Words Not Found in Scripture – Ordinance

What are Ordinances? It’s been a while since I’ve written a Words Not Found in Scripture post… but I still have a list of words that I want to get through. Today’s word is Ordinance. You may have heard this word from time to time while listening to a preacher or perhaps in a business[Continue Reading…]

Words Not Found in Scripture – Pastor

I have not done a Words Not Found in Scripture post in a while, so I decided to pull out a quick one for everyone. Today I would like to talk a little bit about the word “pastor”. In the modern Evangelical Christian Church the Pastor is basically the CEO. He runs the show, his[Continue Reading…]

Words Not Found in Scripture – Pulpit

What is said and done behind a pulpit is serious business to the average churcher. Sometimes you might hear someone say, “Can you believe what he said behind the pulpit?” [1] Another may believe that the pulpit is a ministry that is “absolutely essential to the vitality and health of the church as a whole.[Continue Reading…]
