Nate PickowiczChristianity, Series: Best Book in the Bible1 Comment

here is no greater aspiration for the Christian believer than to know the Lord Jesus Christ. Not only is He our Savior, but He is our God and King. And while all of Scripture points to Christ, it is the Gospels that give us the most complete biographical accounts of His life on earth. Because of its focus on the rich teaching ministry of Jesus, for many, Matthew is the best book in the Bible. Main theme: Jesus Christ: Messiah & King Favorite verses: “For all these things the Gentiles eagerly seek; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.

he gospel is always the central focus when we talk about Christianity. And on the horns of any discussion is the question: How can a just God save sinful people?

You Want Christian Outrage?! (An Alternative to Josh Feuerstein’s Starbucks Cup Rage)

Landon ChapmanChristianity4 Comments

Supposedly there is a large amount of Christian outrage over Starbucks removing all Christmas-y symbols from their cups this year.  In reality, we found out it was one guy, Joshua Feuerstein, who makes his living as a “Christian” shock jock of sorts and published this video that has since gone viral.  I put Christian in quotes because, well, just read this article by Pastor Gabe Hughes of WWUTT and you’ll see that Mr. Feuerstein is actually a modalist heretic. Anyway, our very own Pastor Nate Pickowicz realized he too was feeling some outrage coming on and decided to share it with the social media world in true Joshua Feuerstein style (Disclaimer: the video contains Biblical truth, the presentation is one-hundred percent … Read More

Landon ChapmanChristianity, Series: Women of the Bible1 Comment

Joshua 6:25 [ESV] “But Rahab the prostitute and her father’s household and all who belonged to her, Joshua saved alive.
