Let Us Pray… for the Conclave (UPDATED)

Is it possible that the Roman Catholic conclave of cardinals would elect a "sleeper," one who would take Catholics from Rome to Wittenburg and Geneva?

“We Won’t Get Fooled Again!” (UPDATED)

February 13, 2013
“We Won’t Get Fooled Again!” (UPDATED)

The real story of the papacy is a story of occasional virtue and piety but more frequently of venal characters, of power politics, of intrigue, and not even downright deceit.

Evangelicals and Protestants Together for the Gospel

October 28, 2010
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."

Six More Bibles for Idiots (Updated)

October 13, 2008

Desmond Tutu writes in the foreword, "It is possible to have a new kind of world, a world where there will be more compassion, more gentleness, more caring, more laughter, more joy for all of God's creation, because that is God's dream. And God says, 'Help me, help me, help me realize my dream.'"

Antichrist: Is it Obama… or Barney?

A Democratic Party consulting group charges that a McCain campaign video entitled "The One" is "rife with image after image foisting presidential candidate Barack Obama as the Antichrist of the Bible.

What Happened to These Reformation Churches?

June 13, 2008

"What the liberal theologian has retained after abandoning to the enemy one Christian doctrine after another is not Christianity at all, but a religion which is so entirely different from Christianity as to be long in a distinct category.... It is at any rate perfectly clear that liberalism is not Christianity."

“Could Instruments Be Idols?”

May 7, 2008
“Could Instruments Be Idols?”

Dr. R. Scott Clark, Professor of Historical Theology at Westminster Seminary California, has quite a challenging post about musical instruments in worship: "Could Instruments Be Idols?" He points out two major problems with the use of musical instruments in worship.

Why Ordain Ministers?

May 3, 2008

Why ordination? This question might be on the minds of many evangelicals whenever they hear of someone (like myself) being ordained to be a minister or pastor of a church. In this age of anti-intellectualism and anti-authority coupled with a low view of Scripture, creeds, church, and ministers, ordination is looked upon as unusual, unnecessary, and maybe even Roman Catholic.

The Latin Mass and its Sibling, Evangelical Worship

March 27, 2008

"It has been said that the traditional Latin Mass is the most beautiful thing this side of heaven... The service "draws you in bodily by appealing to the physical senses, but it also provokes and draws in the soul." says one worshiper. And he "feels closer to God when he smells the burning incense, hears the bells intone, and sees the symphony of symbolic gestures and movements among the congregants."

Sin: according to the Pope, Osteen, Warren

March 21, 2008

I wonder how Joel Osteen and Rick Warren preach the death and resurrection of Christ without mentioning sin, God's wrath, and judgment. Here are some quotes from USA Today:

The One True Church?

July 11, 2007
The One True Church?

Does the Roman church exhibit any of these three marks? Maybe some, maybe sometimes. For sure, the true gospel of justification by faith alone in Christ alone by grace alone is not preached. Does the Roman church properly administer the sacraments in believing the doctrine of transubstantiation and baptismal regeneration? No. Does the Roman church exercise discipline among its clergy and people? We know it certainly does not.

“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 […]
