Falling (away) from Grace
(Part 3)

Given the background of part 1 in this series and the context of our subject—falling away from grace—it is easy to see why folks feel like Hebrews 6:4-6 is teaching that our salvation in insecure or conditional. But the troublesome aspects of these verses is not whether or not people can lose their salvation (they Continue Reading…

Falling (away) from Grace
(Part 2)

It is tempting to spend a great deal of time discussing the elementary aspects of the Word because it feels as though we are clarifying and embellishing our walk with Christ when we do so. In addition, I think discussions on these subjects is enticing because they can be somewhat sensational, e.g. judgment, healing, etc. Continue Reading…

Falling (away) from Grace
(Part 1)

Hebrews 6:4-6 must be evaluated in the context of 5:11-6:20. While many teach and preach and believe this passage declares that our salvation is a tenuous arrangement with God, such is not the case when the context is carefully considered. Building a theology based upon snippets of Scripture is sure to lead to confusion and Continue Reading…

Dating: Locating Mr./Ms. Right? (Part 4)

A large part of the answer you seek in gaining the attention of, and ultimately of finding the right man, lies in Father bringing the right man your way. There is also the component of you being open to the man He escorts into your life. The hard part is waiting and trusting Him, giving Continue Reading…

Dating: Locating Mr./Ms. Right? (Part 3)

Pornography is a poison affecting society at large as well as the fundamental building blocks of culture and humanity. It skews an accurate image of sexuality with tantalizing images of forbidden, unhealthy, and toxic connections with other people. (I deliberately chose to use the word "connections" versus "relationships" because porn is hardly relational.) At best Continue Reading…

Dating: Locating Mr./Ms. Right? (Part 2)

As bad as I hate to say it, Mr. Right is a tougher person to locate as time passes. I’ve been asked on many occasions why Christian men are not interested in nice Christian ladies. While dowdy dress may be part of the answer, another part of the answer may be that many Christian men Continue Reading…

Dating: Locating Mr./Ms. Right? (Part 1)

There are those in the Christian community who diminish the importance of physical appearance in an effort to focus attention on the inward self. While I’m all for paying attention to the inward person, we must not do so to the exclusion of the outward, or vice versa. Certainly we must understand that the outward Continue Reading…

How Do I Know the Will of God? (Part 4)

One more thing about understanding the will of God before we move to another subject: Let’s assume you head down a given road for a period of time and conclude that you need to change course. Does this mean you missed God’s perfect will for you? Not necessarily. The goal of our relationship with Father Continue Reading…

How Do I Know the Will of God? (Part 3)

So how do I KNOW that I have zeroed in on the will of God? If an issue is expressly addressed in the Word, elicited to the surface through the wise counsel of godly and mature Believers, or if it is the thought pattern that seems to have come into focus as I discuss the Continue Reading…

How Do I Know the Will of God? (Part 2)

God speaks clearly about many issues in His Word, and in so doing, expresses His will. For example, we don’t have to go to Him and enquire about whether it is His will for us to sleep with our neighbor’s wife or share Christ with a co-worker. These are expressly addressed in the Book He Continue Reading…
