I received a good amount of criticism for my previous post COEXIST? – A Destructive Delusion
Based on the comments that were made and the questions that were asked of me I have realized that the people who support COEXIST have a deeply flawed idea of truth and love.
A common question I received was: “What makes your beliefs right and everyone else’s wrong? Other people believe in their god just as much as you believe in yours.”
This question implies that belief determines truth. For example if I believe in the God of the Bible then that’s the truth for me and if someone else believes in the god of Islam, then that’s the truth for them – and we are both equally entitled to our “truths”.
That is however the very ideology that I was rejecting in my first post. (more…)

We have all seen the bumper stickers – COEXIST – created from the symbols of the worlds major religions. It’s the mantra of the new unity movement, knitting together the religions as if they’re all equal and true.  Coyly tossing the cross of Christianity at the end as if Jesus is one way among many; as if truth could be blended with untruth (the result of which is not an amalgam of unified truth, but pure untruth.) The only thing that makes me shake my head more than this movement is seeing a professing Christian who supports this COEXIST movement. In fact those people have some serious soul searching to do because Jesus doesn’t allow that option. Jesus doesn’t allow us to “COEXIST.” If we don’t serve Him and Him alone, we don’t serve Him at all.  (more…)

Day after day we read comments in the news from the enemies of Israel. They spew venomous lies, hate and condemnation.

– “Israel will be destroyed”

– “Israel will be pushed into the sea”

– “Jerusalem will be a graveyard for the Jews”

– “No one will hear the cries of the Jews”

While the hatred and curses of destruction bubble up we may begin to believe that no one hear’s their cries but there is in fact one who hears their cries – YHWH God! He will not stay silent much longer but His passion for His people will be revealed and the anger in His face will rage.   (more…)

The church today is in the midst of an identity crisis – particularly in the American church.
We have an unhealthy disassociation with what (actually who) the church really is. We’ve mentally separated ourselves from being the church and placed the idea of the church onto a building of wood and brick.
This may come as a shock to some, but these fancy buildings that we see on the sides of the road with their denominational tags and pretty steeples, these are not churches – the true church has no denomination. The people inside attending service, singing, praying, acting – they aren’t the church either (although some of them might be.) (more…)
