Making Disciples of Christ!

Until about two years ago or so I was passionate about the following;

Matthew 28:19-20

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Making disciples of Christ is one of the most enjoyable rewarding experiences that any Christian could ever possibly do.

It can also be one of the most difficult of all of Christ’s commands to accomplish.

I stopped caring about those things because I was too busy fighting battles that had nothing to do with me or the work that was and is done here. Continue reading

It’s Wednesday!!

It’s a crisp Wednesday morning in beautiful Corfu Greece. Autumn came in with a bang thanks to a two day massive wind and rain storm that basically shut down practically everything on the Island.

I think the guy who invented generators had Corfu in mind and if you ask a Greek they’ll more than likely tell you that the generator was invented in Greece!

You do know that everything, and I do mean EVERYTHING, has its origins in Greece, right?

I know that was a line from the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding but in reality some Greeks actually believe this to be the truth. Continue reading

Blessed Assurance Jesus is Mine!

Blessed assurance is a classic hymn and one of my all-time favorites.

I don’t see how anyone believing that somehow they had something to do with their salvation could honestly sing this song…..how could they ever be sure they wouldn’t wind up ultimately rejecting God?

The Arminian believers sure do puzzle me.

Are you blessedly assured that your salvation is secure?

Is your eternal destiny something that concerns you? Are you certain that you are indeed truly saved?

I know these are tough questions for a Friday.

Tough questions usually produce tough answers and the Apostle Paul desired the Corinthians, and us, to do the following; Continue reading

Book Review: The Jesus Inquest: The Case For and Against the Resurrection of the Christ by Charles Foster

I just finished reading The Jesus Inquest: The Case For and Against The Resurrection of Christ by Charles Foster and published by Thomas Nelson as part of the BookSneeze blogger review program. I was given this book as a gift and was not asked to give a positive review in exchange for said gift. Continue reading

The Shrinking New Testament by Boyd Miller

As the charismatic madness has swept the world and infected all the churches, the New Testament has shrunk to only 22 books. Today’s church worshippers begin with the book of Acts and totally ignore the teachings of Jesus in the first four books. The modern mega-church sermon is more interested in the accomplishments and wealth of a few Old Testament prophets than the words uttered by Jesus. Of course one could hardly expect an honest presentation of Matt. 6 from a man or woman adorned in a $1500 garment standing on a raised platform surrounded by body guards proclaiming their “anointing” and spiritual gifts.

The average charismoron is more acquainted with Malachi 3(which wasn’t written to them) than Matthew 5 and 6(which was). Sad!
