Sinners: Inside and Outside

{byline}{actionbar} 1 Corinthians 5:9-11 I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people—not at all meaning the sexually immoral of this world, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world.

Why King David Cannot Be Used To Justify Divorce, Remarriage or Adultery

There have been numerous leaders who have referenced King David to justify their ability to continue ministering without a hitch despite unbiblically divorcing their spouses, remarrying, and even committing adultery. Before we examine this subject, let us first establish some general rules as a foundation: 1) The moral standards of the law as found in…

Protecting the Church

{byline}{actionbar} 1 Corinthians 5:6-8Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump?

Annulling Our Covenants with Death

Introduction A covenant is an agreement we make with someone else.

Death in this context is speaking about something that separates us from God. Let’s see…

He Saved Us with His Knowledge of Us

Text: Isaiah 53:4-5, 11 Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed…. Yet it pleased…

Connecting to the Eyes of the Lord

Texts: 2 Chronicles 16:9 and Revelation 1:6-8 Revelation 1:6-8 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet, saying, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last,” and, “What you see, write in a book and send it to…

Seven Things All Good Biblical Theology Must Include

One of the most important lessons I have learned, from years as a pastor and leader who works with other leaders, is to have a robust, full-orbed theological foundation that is practical enough to meet the challenges of ministry, cultural engagement and life. By “theology” I am referring to the study of God, the scriptures…
