“Was Easter Borrowed from a Pagan Holiday?”

“Was Easter Borrowed from a Pagan Holiday?”

McRoy's thesis is that Easter, name and celebration, was not pagan in origin. The assertion of pagan origin of the name is largely based on the English and German names for the celebration.

To Young Evangelicals: Don’t Swim from Willow Creek to the Tiber; Swim to Lake Geneva

So if you're one of those "young evangelicals" whose minds have been emptied out by the mindless cacophony of your "Willow Creek" church, don't swim back to the Tiber. You have another option, a great one: swim to "Lake Geneva" where your minds will be fed with "true, deep, intellectually robust spirituality" of the 16th century Protestant Reformation.

Pacquiao: New-Found Faith or Gullible Victim?

After his loss, what did Pacquiao hear from these shameless hucksters? I'm almost sure that not a few of them told him he lacks faith, and he needs to "give more to the Lord," so the windows of heaven will pour down more blessings on him.

How One “Dechurched” Sees “Evangelicals”

Not surprisingly, Luhrmann compares the Vineyarders’ beliefs to children’s thought processes. For some evangelicals, she says, God is not unlike a stuffed Snoopy.

Conform, Reform or Leave? Part Three

"This is to say nothing of the loss of the sacred in contemporary church music and worship, or of an overall aesthetic sensibility close to that of Wal-Mart."

Transformed by Incomprehensible Love (Repost)

A husband promises to love and to cherish his wife, but would he keep this promise if his wife was unfaithful? Not so with Christ, who, like Hosea, kept his promise, even to an adulterous Bride: he "loved the church and gave himself up for her."

“After my 15th rededication … faith was almost completely extinguished”

"I declared a church fast and we quit attending church altogether. We quit our small group, we quit working with the ministry to the homeless; we just stopped everything. Our faith was almost completely extinguished."

How Should Christians View Contraception?

How Should Christians View Contraception?

Ultimately, all Christian arguments concerning birth control or “family planning” must be based on Scriptural principles. But we find very little explicit teaching about contraception, unlike numerous texts concerning human sexuality and marriage. 1. The Bible is very clear about procreation from the “cultural mandate” in Genesis 1:28: “And God blessed them. And God said […]

Ted Williams and Great Testimonies

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been hearing about this Ted Williams story, but was never interested enough to inquire more than just the usual mouseover summary. But the story must have been interesting enough that even R. Scott Clark blogged about it: Americans love a comeback story. Americans also love magic. Sometimes the […]

Evangelicals and Protestants Together for the Gospel

"After 1520 an evangelical was a person who was committed to the sufficiency of scripture, the priesthood of all believers, the total lostness of humans, the sole mediation of Christ, the gracious efficacy and finality of God's redemptive work in Christ through election, propitiation, calling and keeping."

Pop Evangelism’s Misuse of Scripture–Part 5

2 Chronicles 7:14 is a call for God's people Israel to repent of its sin and return to him in order for God to restore his blessings on them, not an exhortation to the church to work for establishing a Christian nation.

Israel’s Jubilee Fulfilled in the Philippines!

February 12, 2010

Really? If Moses were alive today, he would have died laughing at the "Intercessors for the Philippines," a group of Filipinos so gullible to the deception of Cindy Jacobs, a well-known false prophet.
