  • The sad decline of America and the West

    Sadly my parents divorced when I was 12 years old. It was the single most traumatic event in my life, up until I started suffering from severe mental illness. It has continued to negatively affect me my entire adult life. It’s not something I ever got over. The pain is still raw even nearly 35 […]

  • 25 qualities of unbelief and faith

    The following is “25 qualities of unbelief and faith” by John Bunyan. Faith believeth the Word of God; but unbelief questioneth the certainty of the same (Ps. 106:24).

  • Abortion Deconstructed

    Since January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court decision in the matter of Roe v. Wade found in favor of the “Jane Roe” (Norma McCorvey), who was seeking an abortion in Texas. The Supreme Court ruled that a woman’s “right” to an abortion was a constitutional right. Even though the US Consitution explicitly affirms the right […]

  • In Christ Alone

    I don’t like much contemporary Christian music, but I absolutely love this contemporary hymn, a throwback to classic hymns, “In Christ Alone”. The Irish melody is beautiful and the lyrics are doctrinally rich and sound. It was written by Keith Getty and Stuart Townend, both musicians of Christian worship music in Britain. Written in 2002, […]

  • Justification and the Gospel – A Response to N.T. Wright

    Is justification part of the gospel? Or is it a separate transaction? Is (final) justification delayed until the future when we face God’s judgment?
