Tips for Daily Bible Reading – “A Christian who fails to read his or her Bible is missing out on an opportunity to meet with God—the very One who wrote the Bible. I suspect that many people fail to read their Bible every day because they don’t recognize the Bible’s value.”

How to Criticize Other Christians without Being Mean – “When you do word studies, avoid the root fallacy, take advantage of scholars’ expertise, and remember that context is king. In short, read, reread, and reread again. It’s not as flashy a study method, and it probably won’t make you feel (or look) as smart, but it’ll give you much more accurate results.”

Five Truths About the Wrath of God – “The fact that so many people struggle with these questions, and many more like them, means that more than ever right thinking is needed about the doctrine of God’s wrath. It is needed for motivation for Christian living, fuel for proper worship, and as a toolbox to confront objections to Christianity.”

Looking for Loopholes in all the Wrong Places – “You see what happens when the law is separated from knowing God and his Holiness? It becomes a blunt instrument, a meaningless brute. The Scribal, oral tradition only stressed the reduced, shrunken, and negative view of the ‘Thou shalt only not commit adultery’ Commandment. They should have known that it is not merely the external culmination forbidden but also the internal origination.”

How to Hear Sermons – “Everyone wants to know what it takes to preach a great message or how to become a spectacular speaker. But let’s face it, when was the last time you saw a book on how to hear a sermon? My guess…never! We tend to view the sermon as something the preacher does. But actually, there is much to preaching that has to do with what the listener does as well. Unfortunately, the average churchgoer never receives instruction on his role in the reception of Sunday’s message.”
