They Call Me Mr….No They Don’t

This is not a well thought out post over many days. There’s your warning. Now, why do young people seem to no longer address those much older than they are as ‘Mr.’ or Mrs.’? It could be an outright lack of respect for other human beings, regardless of age. Think gangsta mentality, or, the kids […]

Keeping ‘the feast’ on Memorial Day

Pay attention to all that I have said to you, and make no mention of the names of other gods, nor let it be heard on your lips. “Three times in the year you shall keep a feast to me.  You shall keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread. As I commanded you, you shall eat […]

Where is the honor?

Social Media & Ecclesiastical Honor

Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves – Philippians 2:3 The Apostle Paul has been called the humble cross-bearer. How anyone could read his journeys and experiences while carrying the Gospel to nations, with all of his sufferings and persecution in the […]

John Stott (1921-2011)

Update: While we certainly acknowledge and remember the contributions of John Stott to Christendom, his (tentative) annihilationist views has always been a concern of mine, and moreso that many were unaware of them. Many of you insist that “he no longer believed in annihilationism” – I hope that’s true. If anyone has evidence to that […]

Christian Martyrdom or Christ?

In the Islamic religion, martyrdom is sought after. According to that false religion, it is a great honor and brings much glory. It is thus encouraged. This martyrdom, or (shahada) is closely related to jihad, or holy struggle. The Islamic concept of mediation and intercession (shafa’a) goes far beyond mere spiritual mediation and includes the […]

A Puritans Prayer: The All-Good

MY GOD, Thou hast helped me to see,     that whatever good be in honour and rejoicing,     how good is He who gives them,       and can withdraw them;     that blessedness does not lie so much       in receiving good from and in Thee,       but in holding forth Thy glory and virtue; […]

Honoring Your Father

“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the LORD your God is giving you.” Exodus 20:12 Parents. According to Scripture, we are to honor them. I know the commandment is full of implications and clear instructions to us as God’s children. This post however, is a […]

I, Nebuchadnezzar

Immediately the word was fulfilled against Nebuchadnezzar. He was driven from among men and ate grass like an ox, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven till his hair grew as long as eagles’ feathers, and his nails were like birds’ claws. At the end of the days I, Nebuchadnezzar, lifted my […]

The Honor of Believers

For it stands in Scripture: “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a cornerstone chosen and precious, and whoever believes in him will not be put to shame.” So the honor is for you who believe, but for those who do not believe, “The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone,” and […]

An LDS View On Glenn Beck & The ‘Restoring Honor’ Rally

Greg West, an LDS Church Examiner sheds some light on Glenn Beck’s dedication to the cult of Latter-Day ‘saints’ and the deception many Christians are either ignoring for the sake of unity in conservative politics, or out of simple lack of knowledge that Mormonism is, indisputably, hellish doctrine: Glenn Beck, a rank-and-file elder of the […]

God Must Be First

“He that makes religion his business believes that to fear God with a secondary fear is atheism; that to trust God with a secondary trust is treason; that to honor God with a secondary honor is idolatry; and to love God with a secondary love is adultery; therefore he loves (and fears and trust and […]
