We Need a Political Reformation: A Return to Nature & Nature’s God

In the July/August 2020 edition of The American Conservative, Matthew J. Peterson writes an article entitled, “America Needs a Re-Founding”. I resonate with most of it. Peterson calls out the failure of past (and contemporary) conservative attempts at fighting the culture wars. These failures have resulted in “Conservative, Inc.”, what he calls “quasi-official conservative institutions”….

Turretin on the Existence of God

In his Institutes of Elenctic Theology, in the first volume, Francis Turretin (1623-1687) includes a section on the irrefutable demonstration of the existence of God. By the way, elenctics pertains to the persuading of non-Christians of the truth of the Christian faith (particularly the gospel). In the third topic of the first volume, the question…

Living Wisely #2: The Beginning of Wisdom

The riches of wisdom are to be found in none other than He who is all-wise.  This is essentially what is meant by Proverbs 1:7, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction” (cf. 9:10). This fear of God is not a cowering fear, but a fear…

Recommended Articles & Videos for Understanding Our Times

2020 has been one crazy year, and we’re only halfway through. I for one am not surprised considering it’s a major election year and the radical left has already made clear it will do just about anything to make sure President Trump is not re-elected. Don’t misunderstand, I’m not suggesting that everything is a conspiracy…

Living Wisely #1: What Is Wisdom?

Wisdom is more than knowledge. It is more than knowing the difference between right and wrong. This is indeed a part of wisdom, but it is not the whole. Wisdom is the putting into practice this knowledge. It is, in other words, living well, or living according to knowledge. This wellness is not a superficial…

Ministering Life at an Abortion Mill

Ministering life through truth at an abortion mill, where pre-born babies are being murdered and mothers and fathers may lash out in hatred toward the truth, is an extremely challenging thing. Emotions are high and the enemy is fast at work. No matter what, however, we must remember why we are there – to plead…

Nature, Wisdom & the Sciences

God speaks to us in His two books: nature and the Holy Scriptures. The former is an unwritten word; the latter a written word (Ps. 19). His written word, too, speaks to us of His unwritten word. For example, Proverbs 3:19 reads: “The LORD by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding He established the heavens.”…

The Centrality of the Word in the Church’s Kingdom Mission

The book of Acts is a unique book in the New Testament Scriptures. It sits between the Gospels and the epistles, serving as an historical sketch of the early Church during the ministry of the apostles, with particular focus on the ministry of Peter and Paul. A key theme in this book, one that I…

The Problem of Suffering: A Christian Response

“Suffering. Pain. Sickness. Evil. What gives? Certainly not God!” This is a common objection raised against the existence of God. If God really existed, then we wouldn’t experience all this suffering, especially if He were a good and powerful God like the Christians assert. I wish to provide a brief response to this objection, this…
