Revival: Why Persecution?

The very reason that Christians were persecuted is because they were living lives that were completely opposed to the valueless humanism of the Roman Empire! Insincere believers fled the flock! Read the New Testament epistles and you’ll see a recurring theme. One writer or another exhorting the early Christians to be patient, to submit to God, to pray for those who treated them so terribly.

Revival: Should We Pray for It?

Today, we are hearing a cacophony of voices crying out that if only America would experience revival, all would be well. We have people who stand up and base their entire best-selling book on one verse of Scripture that actually applies to Israel, but is somehow made to apply to America, and these people are praised! Don’t question that person because he is a sacred cow to someone. What he says is clearly what God wants to happen, right?

War Room: A Review of the Movie and the Industry Surrounding It

Worth the read and to seriously consider…

Seth Dunn

“Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing.  In all circumstances give thanks, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus”1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

War Room is the latest offering from fraternal film makers Alex and Stephen Kendrick.  As is the case with their previous films, War Room is marketed to a Christian audience and written from an evangelical worldview.  The movie stars Priscilla Shirer and T.C. Stallings as Elizabeth and Tony Jordan, a married couple with one young daughter named Danielle.  Though the Jordans are materially prosperous (Tony is a pharmaceutical salesman and Elizabeth is a Real Estate Agent), their marriage is very unhealthy.  The couple argues over money, family relations, has an inactive sex life, and pays so little attention to Danielle that the young girl feels isolated and unloved. To make matters worse, Elizabeth has foul-smelling feet (which are used as a comedic device throughout the film)

Humanity’s Constant Propensity of Being Deceived

Of course, the other downside to skepticism is that people like Randi, due to their unqualified intellectualism, tend not to believe anything that is even remotely supernatural. It’s not as if he is an intentional enemy of it. He just wants proof. Because of that, his area of difficulty will always lie in the area of faith. God says blessed are those who have not seen, yet have believed (John 20:29). For someone like Randi, the ability to believe that which cannot be adequately explained is extremely difficult. Because of that, even seeing is not believing. While Randi does a tremendous service to the social community, rooting out one charlatan after another, his intellectual make-up keeps him from even entering through the door of faith. That tragedy is far worse than learning that someone like Uri Geller or Peter Popoff are potential charlatans.

Since God Exists in the Eternal Present, Does It Matter When He Deals with It?

Whether God fixes things now or in the future makes no difference to God, but only to us. The reality is that He will right all wrongs, but most of them will not be righted until after He returns to this earth, not before. Realizing this, trying to fully understand it, will relieve us of a great deal of frustration. It will also help us reject any acrimonious assault on our character by those who would make us think we haven’t done enough.

We trust God? We work to fulfill the Great Commission? We preach the truth in life and deed? That, my friends, is enough because it is all God asked of us.

Nuclear Deal with Iran is Death Sentence for Israel and America

To allow Iran to have nuclear capabilities is patently absurd. It’s one thing to do everything that can be done to ensure that they do not gain nuclear capabilities. If they do after all is said and done, it won’t be due to nations not trying to disarm them. It’s quite another thing to essentially say “Okay, we believe that you will not use your nuclear capabilities to create armaments that will be used against your sworn enemies.” That’s like inviting a known criminal into your home and believing him when he says he will not break the law while living under your roof. Who does that?

Iran cannot…will not change its spots. They are a rogue nation, a nation that is dedicated to the destruction of Israel and the United States. It is President Obama who bears the responsibility of willfully placing Israel and America in the nuclear cross-hairs of Iran’s weaponry. Only an idiot or traitor would act in such a fashion. I’ll let you decide which one fits.

An Open Letter from John MacArthur Regarding SCOTUS Decision

The highest court in the land has passed its judgment. The headlines proclaim that a slim majority of Supreme Court justices considers freedom of sexual orientation a right for all Americans. This exchange of one set of values in favor of another does not come as a surprise to us who already know that the god of this world has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe (2 Cor. 4:4). June 26th, 2015 stands as a significant milestone in the American demonstration of this ancient reality. This is a critical hour for believers across our nation.
