The importance of framing your worldview

The landscape of our culture’s thought patterns is changing rapidly. You will struggle to grasp how significant those changes are unless you examine their foundations. The following slides will walk you through seven different worldviews that have left a significant impact on our society, and provide you with the Biblical response. J.B. Phillips warned us: DoContinue Reading

5 key words applied to the Bible

Five words are essential to understand how the Word came into being, and how we are to study and apply it to our daily lives.   Revelation refers to the message (2 Pet. 1:4; John 1:18).   In The Moody Handbook of Theology Dr. Paul Enns writes,  Revelation is…that act of God whereby he disclosesContinue Reading

Believing in what we cannot see

The Bible says that “Faith is the realization of things hoped for, the confidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1) Perhaps you, like others, struggle to put your confidence in something or some-one you cannot see. Some people believe that if they can’t see it, it can’t possibly be real. Imagine that I am holdingContinue Reading

Creation and God’s existence

There are people who say that they don’t believe in God because they have never seen Him. I must confess, I’ve never understood that argument. Have they ever been sailing? Or do they refuse to go because they would be dependent upon the wind they cannot see? The apostle Paul spoke about this in RomansContinue Reading

What we can learn from Church history…

One Sunday morning I took a chance. I did something I’d never done before, and that I’d never seen done before. We took the morning teaching time and studied church history. I confess I was a little nervous. History isn’t known as a subject that inspires most of us. After all the dates, places, andContinue Reading

Courage in the Face of Storms

There is a simple prayer uttered by the early disciples of Christ in Acts chapter 4.  In the face of threats from the religious bureaucracy of the day they prayed to the Lord for courage. In their words, “grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word” (Acts 4:29). Remarkably, inContinue Reading

How Big was Noah’s Ark?

God told Noah to build an ark, and he got busy. It’s a good thing he did, because the ark was really big. How big? Big enough that he needed God’s help to accomplish it. Those are the kinds of things I want to attempt for God. Tasks so big, that unless God steps in, itContinue Reading

The Evangelistic Dime

The Bible says that “Faith is the realization of things hoped for, the confidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1) Perhaps you, like others, struggle to put your confidence in something or Some-one you cannot see. Some people believe that if they can’t see it, it can’t possibly be real. Imagine that I am holdingContinue Reading

The Jesus Story: Fact or Legend?

Occasionally I hear of someone who thinks that the story of Jesus as recorded in the Scriptures is more legend than fact. They assume that the accounts of Jesus Christ in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John were the figment of some early church goer’s imagination. If you fit that category can IContinue Reading
