Washington Post Attacked Mother Teresa!

On the twentieth anniversary of “Mother” Teresa’s death, it is noteworthy that the Washington Post, and the British medical journal Lancet, Showtime, and even Roman Catholic media were critical of “Mother” Teresa, sometimes unfairly in my opinion! The Washington Post reported of Teresa, “Her saintly reputation was gained for aiding Kolkata’s poorest of the poor, […]

Does the Bible Contain Fake News and False Stories by Fallible Writers?

Recently, a highly trained and very successful New Jersey pastor announced that he would be preaching the following week in his Gospel of John series but would not deal with John 7:53-8:11–the woman taken in adultery who was forgiven by Christ. The pastor, very close to me, wrote, “we conclude without doubt that John 7:53-8:11 […]

Russell Moore’s Treatment by Southern Baptists May Signal their Future!

The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) has had many successes and some failures and faces more of both in my opinion. The SBC boasts of fifteen million members in 46,000 churches. More than a thousand churches have joined the convention since 2010! That makes it America’s largest “Protestant” denomination; and one indication of its weakness is […]

Principled Principal Properly Penalized Pregnant Pupil!

I can’t win this argument but then I’m used to that. (I can’t even express the title to this column without tying my tongue in a square knot!) I can’t help but be sympathetic for everyone in this situation: A senior girl at a Christian School in Maryland got pregnant and was refused permission to […]

Why Are there so Many Christian Denominations?

Why Are there so Many Christian Denominations?

I have often heard the complaint about so many Christian denominations. We are told that there is one Bible, and we Christians are supposed to love each other; so why have Christians split into 9,000 different denominations? That’s a reasonable question. According to the New Testament, the church was started by Christ and nourished by […]

Contending Christians are Compliant, not Combative!

Timothy was bishop of the Ephesus church and disciple of the Apostle Paul who trained him to be a church leader. In A.D. 97, as the pagans were about to celebrate a feast called Catagogion, a festival in which they carried images of pagan gods through the streets, Timothy, severely reproved them for their ludicrous […]

Are Christian Denominations Wrong?

The short answer is yes. The long answer is yes, and proving it will take some time, but the issue is important. I am not much concerned with what the Methodists, Lutherans, Presbyterians, Anglicans, and others do. And maybe it is convenient that they are all gathered into identifiable groups. My main concern is with […]

U.S. Has Been Captured by Barbarians as Predicted by Historian!

In 1857, Thomas Macaulay, British historian, wrote these prescient words to an American friend: “Your Republic will be as fearfully plundered and laid waste by barbarians in the twentieth century as the Roman Empire was in the fifth, with this difference, that the Huns and Vandals who ravaged the Roman Empire came from without, and […]

Southern Baptists Target Independent Baptist Churches!

I knew there was a “Back to Rome” movement but it seems there is a “Back to Nashville” movement among Independent Baptists! However, I’m not going. I’d rather fight than switch. I don’t understand what’s so attractive about Nashville. A few years ago, some high profile Independent Baptist Churches rejoined the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) […]

Government is Your God if it Must Always be Obeyed!

If you think a citizen must always obey the government, then government has become your God. To disobey government is to become a rebel and maybe a prisoner! It has always been dangerous to be right when your government is wrong. When Christians disobey government, they must do so based on biblical principles, accept the […]
