Is the Future of America Worth Fighting For?

Interestingly enough, America's stability is one of the top concerns on the minds of many today. There was a time in recent history when America felt secure in knowing that the most formidable enemies were abroad. Not so today. While we are concerned with terrorist attacks, and rightly so, there is a greater threat from corruption within.

Another High-Profile Christian Walks Away. What's Going On?

A common question for many is, "Can I lose my salvation?" I've heard both sides of the argument, and only God truly knows a person's heart, but I can share a few thoughts. There is a debate because the Scriptures teach that salvation is a gift from God that cannot be earned, but they also offer warnings about falling away. There should be a healthy tension between God's sovereignty and man's responsibility. This issue should not create a spirit of division, elitism, or theological superiority.

Why I Said Trump Could Lose—And Why I Believe It Happened

The last 30 years of seeker-sensitive, don’t-step-on-toes, “let’s do a survey of what people want to hear” Christianity has increased the rate of decay by removing the sharp sting of God’s truth.

Why Revival Is America's Only Hope

Do we truly want revival? It won't be easy and it will cost us. National revival can only begin when we look in the mirror, repent, and turn toward God in a personal revivial. He is our only hope.

Cancel Culture: The Most Dangerous Virus Infecting the Church Today

While cancel culture is not a new thing, it is new in America, and it’s on the rise. Our nation is increasingly polarized, with people unable to have civil conversations with those who have dissimilar views, and who actually take pleasure in destroying the lives and livelihoods of those who dare to have a different opinion.

Why I Disagree with John MacArthur: I Would Fight for Religious Freedom

Promoting religious freedom is not idolatry. “The Word of God is like a lion. You don’t have to defend a lion. All you have to do is let the lion loose, and the lion will defend itself” (C.H. Spurgeon).

Pastor Says, 'Wives Should Lose Weight to Look Like Melania Trump.' Say What?

My heart broke after heading of a sermon in which a pastor argued that women should look pretty for their husbands. Not only was his statement distasteful and a terrible thing to say, but it was also unbiblical.

Are You on the Verge of Wrecking Your Life?

When we obey God, He strengthens us. When we humble ourselves, His grace is manifested more abundantly, “Just as water ever seeks and fills the lowest place, so the moment God finds you abased and empty, His glory and power flow in” (Andrew Murray). Disobedience leads to desperation and despair.

Why Doesn't Success Satisfy the Soul?

Most of us understand that money can buy the best mattress, but it can’t guarantee sleep. Why do millionaires, movie stars and top entertainers often turn to spirituality, drugs and alcohol for the answers if success satisfies? Many discover that money, fame and recognition are not the answers. CEOs, presidents and vice presidents frequently admit that they are happy when they reach production goals, but very unhappy when under budget, largely because they measure happiness by what’s happening to them. When things go well, they’re happy, when things go poorly, they’re unhappy. I’m not suggesting that we shouldn’t be productive, but if happiness is measured by our circumstances, it’s going to be a very rough road.

How to Rest in Turbulent Times

Expending energy has a time and a very important place in our lives—we were created to work. But we were also created to rest. The problem for many is that they never stop and rest.
