The church has proclaimed the good news that every single sin of humanity was placed upon Jesus at Calvary. However, this wonderful truth is merely the white shell of a sinister interior.
The Gospel of God’s grace is the greatest news one could ever receive. And yet, the Christian gospel is anything but good.
What kind of servant are we to Christ? What do our works really accomplish?
The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the centrepiece of Christianity. We can posit, with a number of arguments, that a god can theoretically exist, but the Resurrection of Jesus is what takes us to Christianity. Can the Resurrection be historically proven beyond a reasonable doubt, or is our faith nothing more than baseless superstition? Let’s begin our look into the most important historical investigation of all-time.
The right way to evangelize is a rightly oft-discussed topic but, in hopes of finding the right answer, we’ve made more than a few grievous mistakes along the way. One of the more alarming misunderstandings derives from Paul’s words in 1 Corinthians 9:19. Is Paul giving us a licence to compromise in order to save the lost?
If you’re familiar with popular Christianity you’ve probably heard the term “lukewarm” used once or twice. But what does the term mean and can it apply to more than bad behaviour?
They say the Christian life is a life filled with joy. But what about when we don’t feel joy?
When we ponder the divine claims of Christ the one we often pay no mind to is the usage of the name “Abba, Father” for God by Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane. Could this name give us a profound insight into Jesus’ mission and identity?
The heart of Christian theology centers around the person of Jesus Christ. John 3:16 says that if we would confess and believe that Jesus Christ is Lord, died on the cross for our atonement, and rose from the grave, we would be saved. However, before we can begin to defend the truth of the Christian faith we need to first ask if Jesus really was who He and His followers said He was.
In all of Christian teaching, I do not believe there is a more disliked instruction than to “Love your enemies as yourself.” But what does it mean to love our enemies and forgive those who come against us?
If the laws of the OT have been superseded in Jesus Christ, does it follow that God changed His mind about which laws should be followed? How we do reconcile the changing of the law if God is the same yesterday, today, and forever?
In the Gospel of John Jesus tells His disciples that they will go on to perform works even greater than His. Is Jesus telling His followers that they will perform miracles that will surpass His own?
Critics of the Christian faith have noted that, in a number of passages, the Bible encourages blind faith and anti-intellectualism. Are the critics interpreting the Bible rightfully or have they merely jumped the gun?
As the new year rolls around many of us are beginning to wonder what 2019 has in store for us. Do you fear what’s ahead? If so, let’s step into the new year with a fresh view on the nature of faith.
As Christmas edges closer and the year begins to close its curtains we should be reminded of an important virtue that seems to have been forgotten in the church: Gratitude.
