Andrew Fuller: Balance in a Time of Extremes

Andrew Fuller was fully aware of the state of his denomination as he entered the pulpit. From the beginning of his pastoral ministry, Fuller set out to correct the many extremes that had overtaken the Baptists in his day. As noted earlier, the General Baptists by 1750 had almost dwindled to nothing because of the … Continue reading Andrew Fuller: Balance in a Time of Extremes

Evil is Not a Problem for the Christian

Many believers try to respond to the "problem of evil" argument against God by immediately trying to argue the facts. Facts do exist, which I will show later, but that is not the first step that should be taken. Rather, the issue can best be settled by trying to define our terms. When someone speaks … Continue reading Evil is Not a Problem for the Christian

The Geometry of Christ’s Love

so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love,  may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. – Ephesians 3:17-19 In the Church we often … Continue reading The Geometry of Christ’s Love

Love is the Primary Response to God

There are so many responses that should flow from the Christian towards their great God. Reverence, humility, obedience, all of these things are proper and necessary responses to this glorious Triune God, but I believe there is one response which serves as the primary response of the Christian to God, and is the response by which all … Continue reading Love is the Primary Response to God

The previous with had been filled with numerous issues, a new semester of School was beginning, and our church is launching a number of ministries since the summer is ending. I walked through the door and my 4 and 2 year old son were fighting over a toys as … Continue reading The Greatest Refuge

The Gospel in Two-Words…

And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience— among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires … Continue reading The Gospel in Two-Words…

God is My Rock!!

My soul, wait in silence for God only, For my hope is from Him.  He only is my rock and my salvation, My stronghold; I shall not be shaken. On God my salvation and my glory rest; The rock of my strength, my refuge is in God. Trust in Him at all times, O people; Pour out your heart before … Continue reading God is My Rock!!

The Path to Rejoicing

I was reading in Luke Chapter 15 today, and was studying the parable of The Lost Son. This parable hits very close to home for me and is one of my favorite parables in the scriptures. I know the Bible is the absolute, complete and infallible Word of God. It cannot be changed and must … Continue reading The Path to Rejoicing

The War for the Gospel is already Here

I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel—not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel … Continue reading The War for the Gospel is already Here
