False Churches Are A Blessing

The true church is defined in the Bible as a called-out assembly of those who are true followers of Jesus Christ. Of his true disciples, Jesus said, “For whoever does the will of My Father who is in heaven, he is My brother and sister and mother.” (Matt. 12:50) The corollary would then mean that a false believer does not do the will of the Father. We know the will of the Father by what His Word says.

False Conversions and the “Sinner’s Prayer”: A Damnable Epidemic in the Modern Church

2 Corinthians 13:5 [ESV] “Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you fail to meet the test!” his is a good question for all of us to ponder.  Is Christ in you?  How do you know?  What proof is there of his presence in your life?  Of course, along with Paul, I believe there is a core of belief that surrounds true faith. But this test asks about your subjective awareness.  So, is Christ in you?1 I recently addressed this issue in Episode 003 of Fire Away! but I’m going to take some time to expand on this idea of false … Read More

(This is the second part of my two part series on judging and discernment.  Click here to read part 1 entitled, “Hey You Christians: “Judge not”!) his article is a number of days tardy.  If you know me and my OCD tendencies, this is a real problem.  I’d love to blame my tardiness on the holiday weekend, but that would but merely be a cop-out of epic proportions.  The reality is that I grappled with whether or not I am qualified to write such a piece.  Last week’s article on righteous judging was right in my wheelhouse as I’ve been studying that topic for quite some time now and I feel comfortable, confident, and educated in what the Scripture has to say … Read More
