From Personal Experience Having personally attended classes at Southern Evangelical Seminary in 2013, I feel as though I dodged a …

My Take on Jewish Rabbis “Partnering” with & Lauding Christianity

Just today, Orthodox Jewish Rabbis declared partnership with Christianity, calling Christianity “the willed divine outcome and gift to the nations.”  (Breitbart) Compliments about the good moral teachings of Jesus crossed these Rabbis lips, but nothing was said of His being Messiah and King of Kings and Lord of Lords. To compliment Jesus for His teachings …

Time to Revive… The Ecumenical Spirit

The Roman Catholic Church works diligently to acquire all sects, including Evangelicals, in the name of unity. Perhaps that comes as no surprise to those who are aware of 1994's Evangelicals and Catholics Together. Yet, the more recent agenda of the Vatican comes as a result of Benedict's declaration in 2010 that it is "time to …

Questions for the Pope

Dear Pope Francis, Why is your Doctrine of Communion not supported by the New Testament, the Holy Scriptures? Why do you currently sell indulgences for sin, like it's the Middle Ages? Haven't we been through all of that? Martin Luther had a big problem with it... and so does the New Testament--Jesus and the Apostles, …

The Consolidation of the Covenant Community

When I visited Rome this summer, and as I ambled up and down its most touristy streets, I spotted a prominent Anglican church on Via del Babuino and told my wife, "That's ironic for Rome. Let's go in just for giggles." As we looked around the walls of that sanctuary, I spied a 2 part …
