    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.”


  • Is Libya Today in Biblical Prophecy?

    Is Libya Today in Biblical Prophecy?

    I don’t want to be left behind in all this excitement about the unfolding of prophecy right before our eyes on CNN and CBN, so I say, “Me, too!” Are dispensationalists the only ones who keep revising their prophecies? So here’s an update of two old posts regarding how Biblical prophecy must be interpreted.

    Stand Firm Against Deceivers Concerning the Second Coming

    Do not fear when others proclaim the end of the world is near, because of the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster in Japan and the war in Libya.

    How Pilgrims Persevere in Suffering

    In 1 Peter 4:12-19, the apostle reminds us that as pilgrims in this fallen world, we are not to be surprised, we are not to be ashamed, and we are not to doubt God’s faithfulness when sufferings come. This was how believers throughout history endured unimaginable sufferings.



  • “All Roads Lead to Rome (or Rather, Heaven)”

    “All Roads Lead to Rome (or Rather, Heaven)”

    And among these five essentials, “Christ alone” is often attacked today, not only by non-Christians, but also by Christians of various colors in two ways: universalism and inclusivism. Throughout church history, but especially in our postmodern society, both universalism and inclusivism are affirmed by churches of various persuasions.
