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."

Christianity and Politics

October 4, 2008

As the McCain-Obama and Palin-Biden debates are still in our minds, there are a couple of White Horse Inn broadcasts that might be of benefit to Christians in thinking about the coming elections.

Early Presbyterianism in the Philippines Part 2

July 29, 2008

After the American forces defeated the Spanish colonialists in the Philippines in 1898, Presbyterian, Baptist and Methodist leaders met in New York to discuss how to evangelize the new colony.

Pastor Mike as President?

January 10, 2008

Now that former Baptist minister Mike Huckabee is doing well in the presidential primary campaign, it is well for Christians to think about the relationship between church and state. Kim Riddlebarger’s “Mike Huckabee and the Two Kingdoms” is a useful read on this matter. I also have two other posts related to this subject. The […]

Non-threatening. Relevance. Love. Coffee shop. Fun and games. These are the code words for today's evangelical churches. But what about church words like these: Offense of the cross. Sin. God's wrath. Liturgy. Sacrament. Suffering. None of that irrelevance - the Bible is out, Starbucks (or Purpose-Driven Life) is in.

“One Nation Under God”?

May 8, 2007

I’m re-posting this article I wrote back in May 2007. In view of the May 14 midterm elections in the Philippines, and of the current presidential campaign in the United States, I have been pondering the age-old question of how a Christian should relate to the culture around him. What must the Christian’s response be […]

Demythologizing 7 Popular Christmas Myths

December 25 was not an accommodation to a pagan festival. Rather, it was regarded as the actual historical date of Jesus' birth since the 2nd century.

That There is Only One God

November 27, 2006

Many Christians wouldn't know what to say when confronted with the question: "What is God" or "Who is God." But we don't have to conjure up vague answers in our mind: the Confession already has a comprehensive one. Let's look briefly at each portion of the Confession's definition of God, and then think about some misconceptions related to that portion.
