ARTICLES I LIKE FROM AROUND THE WEB: (Click title to go to full article) The Most Difficult Funerals (Suicide) – “Over the years I have read several books and articles intended to help pastors who are called upon to preach at a ‘difficult funeral.’ While most pastors will confess that all funerals are difficult in their own way, there are certainly a variety of funerals that are particularly emotional and stressful – such as the death of a child, the traffic-accident victim, the young parent, or the crime victim. While having been called upon to preach at all of these types of funerals, I can say from my own experience that the most trying funerals have to be those for … Read More
Hebrews 11:3 [ESV] “By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.” n the heels of Jeff’s article posted a few weeks ago regarding the New Age, I received a message from a dear brother in my congregation asking if I’d seen the new Julia Roberts video on YouTube. I don’t typically make a habit of searching for Julia Roberts on YouTube so, naturally, I responded in the negative. This video, and ten others, were created and published by an organization known as Conservation International (you may view all eleven in the playlist at the end of this article). While these short videos are well-produced and … Read More
eretic. If you’ve been on Twitter for a while, you’ve probably heard the term tossed around. Sometimes it is deserved, sometimes it is not, and sometimes it seems like “heresy” simply means “whatever I strongly disagree with.” In today’s American church culture, which is sometimes welcoming to a fault, how should we be using the word heresy? We’ll start with a definition – a heresy is a teaching within the church that is so wrong that the church must break away from the person, people, or group promoting that teaching and assume him/them to be unsaved. Heresy is the opposite of orthodoxy. A heretic is someone teaching or holding to a teaching that is heretical.

Program Segments: [ 02:37 ] Victoria Osteen shocked everyone with her most recent proclamation from the pulpit at Lakewood Church. This is the most blatant instance of blasphemy I’ve ever heard from them, and that’s saying something. [ 43:20 ] Verse of the Day: Matthew 18:20. This verse is not about small groups…
(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
