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 […]

For he writes, “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by […]

The debate of the Gog Magog battle

“The word of the Lord came to me: “Son of man, set your face toward Gog, of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him and say, Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I am against you, O Gog, chief prince of Meshech and Tubal.” ‭‭Ezekiel‬ ‭38:1-3‬ ‭ESV‬‬ […]

Demonization Categories

As sort of a follow up to yesterday’s post, I thought it would be good to briefly explain the negative side of the spiritual world–demonization. Demonization is the activity of the demonic realm upon mankind, and can be found in the testimony of Scripture and firsthand testimonies of real people. If any of you want […]

The Canonicity of the New Testament

The Canonicity of the New Testament has been a debated issue for centuries. The scriptures have been criticized the world over in hopes to find fault with them and to prove the opposite of what the scriptures claim to be — inspired by God Himself. How was the New Testament canon compiled? Who compiled it? Is the canon trustworthy and reliable? These are some good questions and deserve good answers. Fortunately, there are answers.
