The Apex of History

I have an incredible chart of history. It shows the spread of people groups, the rise and fall of world empires, the modern world wars, major epidemics, important discoveries and inventions—thousands and thousands of key events in the chronology of human affairs from creation week until it was published in 1992 and given to me as a phenomenal gift. I refer to it often. But none of thes...

7 Threats in Our Times: (#2) The Rise of Homo Deus and Meo Christianity

In the luxury of a culture where even the lower economic classes live like kings compared to the world’s poor, we have become immensely spoiled. We are lavished with bins overflowing with fresh fruit and vegetables in the dead of winter, aisles full of choice cut-meats, acres of shelves filled with more products than anyone could possibly want, stores with racks of clothes and shoes of ev...

Cancelling Religion and Parents

For behold, your enemies make an uproar; those who hate you have raised their heads. They lay crafty plans against your people; they consult together against your treasured ones. Psalm 83:2-3 The headline in our newspaper read: “Religious reference upsets D-20 parents”. Our local school district is having a battle. A new Board Member thinks parents should have mo...

 (#18) The Early Resurrection Creed

When we come to the apologetic or defense against the argument that the resurrection is merely legend or myth, there are two key elements that must be well understood. The first is the “resurrection polemic” and the second is the “early resurrection creed”. We looked at the resurrection polemic last time. Now, we want to examine the early resurrection creed. Here it is:...

7 Threats: (#3) The Loss of the Noble Male and the Rise of Malevolent Compassion

Nothing is judged more severely by our culture today than assertions of biblical male and female absolutes. It may be possible that we are in the final progression of God giving our culture up to first “sexual impurity” then “shameful lusts” and finally a “depraved mind”. And throughout all of this, true human sexuality has been the prime target. The enemy tu...

7 Threats in Our Times: (#1) The Rise of the Scoffer and the Depraved Mind

[previous] There are two progressions in Scripture that appear to be manifested in our culture and in our times. These are not onward and upward progressions, but more of a downward spiral. One of those progressions comes primarily from Proverbs where we are introduced to three kinds of people: the simple, the fool, and the scoffer. They are continually contrasted with the wise. We meet a...

If Jesus Rose from the Dead, then (#1) the Seal Was Broken

We don’t spend much time talking about the seal that was placed upon the tomb, but I think it is significant. Here is the historical record: The next day, that is, after the day of Preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees gathered before Pilate and said, “Sir, we remember how that impostor said, while he was still alive, ‘After three days I will rise.’ Th...

Engagement Project Launch

We are rejoicing! God was gracious to us yesterday at the Engagement Project launch in Colorado Springs. We filled the sanctuary of Village Seven Presbyterian Church (within the COVID restrictions) and there were 490 who joined us on the live stream. It was a joy for me to be able to meet so many who had been faithful in leading the Truth Project and were now excited to take this next step....

7 Threats in Our Times: (#7) The Attack Upon the Biblical Family

Of all the social institutions designed by God, I suppose none is under greater attack than the family. This shouldn’t surprise us, for destroying relationships is the ultimate scheme of Satan and it is here we find the most intimate. Indeed, it seems that the entirety of the world, the flesh and the enemy are today aligned against the biblical family. And the family is the heart of a cul...

Thoughts on Ravi Zacharias

There aren’t too many people who are known simply by their first name. Ravi is one of them. He is gone now, but instead of leaving a legacy of great work, we are left with worse than nothing. An independent investigation by the law firm, Miller and Martin, through sufficient interviews and examination of cell phone photos and messages, concluded that Ravi engaged in extended sexual mis...
