How Should Christians Respond to Current Events?

In light of recent developments, I feel compelled to write. I do not pretend that I have a major platform, a huge sphere of influence, or all the answers to every situation that our nation faces today. As a follower of Christ, I’m compelled to speak as it is our civic and Christian duty to speak to issues of our day with wisdom and discernment. All too often the world knows what Christians stand against, but not what we stand for. I will be the first to admit that we are living in perilous times. Talks of nuclear war...

Reformation Theology A Systematic Summary

Does the Reformation still matter? A better question is, “Does Reformed Theology still matter?” We should also ask ourselves, “Does Reformed Theology still have a place in the Twenty First Century’s theological landscape?” Many Christians are not familiar with names such as Luther, Calvin, Zwingli, or Tyndale.

Some time back I was in a used bookstore here in Birmingham when a book caught my eye. The title was Called: My Journey to C.S. Lewis’ House and Back Again by Ryan J. Pemberton. I was intrigued! As I thumbed through, I realized that the book was a spiritual memoir about the author’s call to ministry, which involved him studying theology at Oxford in England. I knew that I had to buy it...

Living in the Light Money, Sex, and Power

What is supreme in our life? What takes first place in the priorities of our life? The answer to that question will reveal where we place our hope and determine what or who we worship. In truth, the place of preeminence is reserved for Christ alone, yet because of the Fall, many other things take His place in our life. Three specific places that all people look for fulfillment are money, sex, and power. Put in priority, these there can bring immense joy. It is when they are put in the place of Christ, that they can become a...
