Theology Thursday: John 10:10

I wasn’t going to do a Theology Thursday post this week, but then┬áthis somehow surfaced in my Facebook feed on Wednesday: This “Bible verse” was posted by the “Christian” radio station K-Love. And like last week’s verse, I have about had it with people completely misusing this verse and leading people down the health &… Continue reading Theology Thursday: John 10:10

Theology Thursday: Philippians 4:13

You’ve seen this verse used out of context somewhere, I guarantee it. Most likely, you’ve seen this used on a running shirt (when not healing – still – from a broken foot, I fancy myself a runner), an athletic team’s t-shirt, or on Beth Moore’s most recent Facebook banner. “I can do all things through… Continue reading Theology Thursday: Philippians 4:13

#firstworldchristianity

I think I have finally pinned down what annoys me to no end about the female “Bible” teachers that are so popular today (aside from the fact that they are wolves in sheep clothing, false teachers, leading people astray, etc. etc.): All they care to offer people is a very weak, very watered down, very… Continue reading #firstworldchristianity

Moses has led… Continue reading Theology Thursday: Exodus 14:14

Book Review: Ordinary (Michael Horton)

” ‘Ordinary’ has to be one of the loneliest word in our vocabulary today…. We have to live up to our Facebook profile. It’s one of the newer version of salvation by works.” – Michael Horton, Ordinary, page 11.

Theology Thursday: Psalm 46:10

I have a Masters of Divinity in Biblical Studies, with a concentration in exegesis and original languages. Exegesis is the study of the text in its original context (language, cultural, authorship, the passage as a whole, etc.) in order to draw out the meaning. I have felt more and more compelled to write about Scripture… Continue reading Theology Thursday: Psalm 46:10
