Baptists are not Protestants but Pious, Polemic Patriots!

A generation ago, it was common for hospitals, jails, schools, and other institutions to have a place on their forms for a person to state their Religion–Protestant, Catholic, or Jewish. However, there was no Baptist designation. Many will say that Baptists are like Methodists, Assembly of God, etc., just another Protestant group; but that is […]

Some Reformers Are an Embarrassment to Christians!

This year is the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation and even Pope Francis is excited about it; although some Catholics think it is rather strange that he would celebrate the catastrophic split in their group. The Roman Catholic Church has received major body blows yet still survives. The early conflicts with the Greek Orthodox […]

Finally, Fantasy Fiction that’s Fantastic!

I don’t like fiction, especially fantasy fiction; however, I have read with delight Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress and Holy War many times and with less enthusiasm, Dante’s Divine Comedy, a three part poem considered a masterpiece. But those classics are an exception. I have finally found a new fantasy fiction series that in fantastic! In a […]

God Doesn’t Grade on a Curve!

Famous philosopher-theologian Francis Schaeffer asked, “How shall we then live?” That is one of life’s most important questions. What is right and what is wrong and what should I do? And everyone down deep knows that right-living is expected, even demanded. Alexander Solzhenitsyn remarked that the demarcation line between good and evil does not pass […]

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 […]
