Change The Lord’s Prayer?

Here is Daniel Wallace’s response to Pope Francis’ suggestive reinterpretation of the Lord’s Prayer. Since I’m no linguistic scholar, I defer to someone such as Wallace that can fully explain the intricacies. Worth the read. Advertisements

Jerusalem, Israel’s Eternal Capital.

It certainly has been refreshing to see our President and his administration publicly and unapologetically declare that Jerusalem is the eternal capital of Israel and work to move the US Embassy there. What many of us Christians have already known and believed, the POTUS has courageously announced the truth to the world. The timing perhaps […]

Heresies – Apollinarianism

Christology at the Close of the Fourth Century ~ At this time, Apollinaris of Laodicea (d. ca. 390) denied Christ’s humanity rather than the denial of His deity, which the Arian heresy taught. The debate of Trinitarian language and the divinity of Christ had been a settled issue by this time. However, within Christianity there […]

Thomism As It Relates to Evangelical Theology

In the history of the church there have been many great minds that have contributed invaluable influence for both the world and Christendom. Their influence has greatly aided the believer in devotion, philosophy, and equipping the saints in apologetics for both answering the objections of the secular world. When one thinks of these champions of […]

Entering God’s Rest

Have you ever noticed that in Deuteronomy chapter two when Moses is giving a summary of Israel’s wonderings, that the LORD had taken His people on a circuit of examples of His ability to give them the land? Forty years earlier the Israelites had rebelled against the Lord’s command to posses the land by lacking […]

Heresies – Arianism

Our Church history is rich and extensive, and with the harvest of wheat comes the tares. Such is the case concerning sound doctrine versus heretical teachings. I wanted to start a mini-series of short, but concise posts of heresies that have cropped up in the history of the Church. They will not necessarily be in chronological order, […]

Revisiting the Didache

As a student of history with a thirst for knowledge, I like to read documents that take me back in time to where it is as if I am eaves dropping on the people of that particular time. First article documents provide eye-witness accounts and knowledge that we might not otherwise be able to get elsewhere […]

So, What Does Athens Have In Common With Jerusalem? The Valuable Contribution of Philosophical Theology

The early apologist Tertullian once exclaimed in his distaste, “What indeed has Athens to do with Jerusalem? The Academy and the Church?” In his mind, such an attempt to marry the two worlds of philosophy and the gospel resulted in much heresy, confusion, and the dulling of spiritual fervor and growth.[1] He was not alone […]

What Is The Ultimate?

To search or not to search? That is the question. Socrates said, “A life unexamined is not worth living.” Surely, the search for knowledge, purpose, meaning, direction, identity and reality as a whole is quite the task. The question to ask then is: What is the Ultimate Reality? It would be found in Transcendence where […]

Creation Provides Evidence For God’s Existence

In regards to the existence of God, the apostle Paul in his epistle to the Romans esteemed creation as adequate evidence to condemn unbelieving mankind for pretending that such a God does not exist. For he writes, “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by […]
