God Our King!

March 25, 2010

This week I have heard lots of animosity in the realm of politics.  I hope and pray that the divisiveness we see in politics never makes its way into the church.  Being a Christian is more important than whatever side of the aisle you align yourself with.  I am a strong believer in the right […]

Thomas Nelson has begun a new series of books entitled Christian Encounters.  This series seeks to present biographies of important individuals throughout history who were also dedicated Christians.  We are given insights and background into great decisions, experiments, discoveries, etc, that these people made, while also learning about their dedication to God and Scripture.  This series began with biographies on Jane […]

ESV iphone app

March 17, 2010

The ESV iphone app is now available from Crossway and the good news is that it is free. Crossway could have easily chosen to charge for this popular version of the Bible, but I am glad they did not. I have already purchased several ESV Bibles and I have purchased one Bible program for my […]

Called to Sacrifice

March 16, 2010

To be a disciple of Jesus Christ means that we are followers of Him at all times.  We cannot choose to be Christians only at certain times and places. We cannot turn Christianity on and off.  When we become Christians we commit ourselves to Christ, and therefore we commit ourselves to a certain lifestyle.  This […]

March Madness

March 11, 2010

I enjoy watching sports.  I love watching the Oklahoma State Cowboys play football and basketball, and the Boston Red Sox play baseball.  My favorite sporting event is the NCAA basketball tournament.  The cowboys usually make it to the tournament, but even if they don’t I like watching it. It is an exciting sporting event with […]

Brief Thoughts on Mergers and Pluralism

March 11, 2010

I was recently asked to give a lecture on the subject of mergers and pluralism.  Here are a few brief thoughts on the subject. The idea of mergers and pluralism begins with a focus outside the local congregation onto something else.  It will be beneficial to examine this focus to see whether or not it […]

American VI

March 10, 2010

The last Johnny Cash album has finally been released.  American VI lives up to the hype and can easily stand beside the other great American recordings.  This album as well as the other American albums put out by Johnny Cash are unique.  Not only are they great albums filled with outstanding music, but they are […]

March 8, 2010

Crossway the publishers of the ESV have announced a new app for the iphone.  In the next few weeks they will release an app that contains the ESV and allows you to search, highlight, record notes, and share passages with others.  I could not find a price on this app, but hopefully it is under […]

Downtown Church

March 6, 2010

Patty Griffin’s new album, Dowtown Church, is amazing.  Griffin who is an outstanding songwriter whose songs have been covered by The Dixie Chicks, Solomon Burke, Kelly Clarkson, Emmy Lou Harris, and many others only writes two songs on this album.  Instead she chooses to cover many older traditional gospel songs.  The focus of this album […]

And the Oscar goes to…

March 6, 2010

It’s that time of year again.  It’s time to pick who you think will win the big awards on Oscar night.  I always enjoy the oscar nominated movies because I believe there is more thought behind them than some of the big summer blockbusters.  These movies are usually very compelling and many of them have […]
