Charles Wohlforth wrote an excellent opinion piece in the Anchorage Daily News on how in light of the 1964 earthquake where 131 lives were lost, we should be thankful because of the scientists and engineers who have designed our infrastructure in Alaska in such a way that it served as one of the most important … Continue reading Who we should truly thank that we all survived the quake on Friday

Christmas is a Call to Missions
"This is what the Sovereign Lord says: I am against the shepherds and will hold them accountable for my flock. I will remove them from tending the flock so that the shepherds can no longer feed themselves.

Thanksgiving and the Marriage Supper of the Lamb
I love Thanksgiving. It is a day marked by an attitude which should permeate us every day! We are so entitled, we feel as if we are owed everything, and often times that carries over even into our relationship with God. Thanksgiving, however, reminds us that we are far more than just a product of … Continue reading Thanksgiving and the Marriage Supper of the Lamb

Soli Deo Gloria: Why 501 Years later, the Reformation still Matters.
501 Years ago today, an Augustinian monk Martin Luther, nailed his famous 95 Theses to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany.

Three Disciplines for Spiritual Formation
An essential part of any life is growth. Where growth is absent, death is abundant, and it is no different for the Christian life. In Ephesians 4:15, Paul writes, “Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ." When Christians are born again through faith … Continue reading Three Disciplines for Spiritual Formation
Does the Bible Teach that Noah’s Flood was Global or Local?
There are many today who try to argue that Noah's flood only referred to a local or regional flood, not a global one. My goal here is to not and try to lay out the physical evidence that the latter indeed was the case (though I believe there are many such evidences), but to show … Continue reading Does the Bible Teach that Noah’s Flood was Global or Local?
Kavanaugh Vs. Ford Reveals Exactly why God’s Law is still Relevant.
Psalm 19:7 – “The Law of the Lord is perfect…” In the past few weeks I have seen one of the greatest debacles ever displayed in American politics and law.
