Because of the multiplication of wickedness, distressing things will happen

"In politics, never assume that because something is insane, it will not be done. The Holocaust was as insane as it was a moral horror. But it was done. Even after the tide of war turned against Germany and it faced invasion and devastation, Hitler continued to pour scarce resources into the  […]

The days of Noah

"As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be at the coming of the Son of Man." - Matt 24:27 This statement is one of several from Jesus Himself indicating what we should expect to see before "the coming of the Son of Man". The account of Noah is very short - basically confined  […]

My kingdom is not of this world

Theology 101: “My kingdom is not of this world” does not mean Christ’s kingdom is merely spiritual, heavenly, moral, or ethereal. It means, primarily, His kingdom is not “worldly”—it does not follow worldly principles, employ worldly tactics, or seek worldly ends. - Dr. Michael J. Svigel The  […]

The creation groans...

“My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust?” - C.S. Lewis And if the  […]

The gospel of the kingdom of God

Theology 101: Without Genesis 1-3 and Revelation 20-22, it’s hard to make sense of any of this. - Dr. Michael J. Svigel I agree. It's hard to make sense of any of this without the context of Genesis, and the Revelation to John. There are so many other "church" narratives competing for our  […]

The Spirit bears witness with our spirit about many things...

I think Romans 8 is one of the best post-gospel accounts on the activity and role of the Holy Spirit. These statements are meant to be understood very plainly. The Spirit directs, governs our minds. (v 6) "the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. " We are obligated (though not  […]

On Being Cautiously Charismatic

charisma.jpg, May 2022

My wife and I grew up and spent most of our adult lives in cessationist church cultures. And it's the church culture that we exposed our own children too. That is sad I know... We've been trying to fix that, but it takes time to unlearn that whole perspective. Here's a good article from Dr. Michael  […]

The Restoration

"Theology 101: If you believe the ultimate hope of the Christian faith is dying and going to heaven forever, you may have stopped reading the Bible and accidentally picked up a false gnostic gospel. Christian hope is in resurrection and eternal life in the renewed creation." - Michael J.  […]

The Biblical Worldview

The Biblical worldview of the "kingdom of God" has largely been abandoned. In its place, we have much of the church functioning from a Gnostic paradigm in its religious life, and functioning in a secular paradigm in the rest of her life Gnosticism - The belief that the universe is divided  […]

Beware of false expectations!

I think one of the more disturbing and perhaps destructive ideas to come out of the modern western church is the teaching that believers can be assured a life of comfort and prosperity if you just follow the principles set in the Bible. This is a distortion that results from insulated church  […]
