2 PETER‬ ‭1:20‬‬‬

“Above all, you must realize that no prophecy in Scripture ever came from the prophet’s own understanding,”‭‭ 2 Peter‬ ‭1:20‬ ‭NLT‬‬ Where does the scripture come from, that Peter would have such tenacity towards its claims? Peter’s high regard for scripture is a blueprint for what our regard for scripture should be as well. ManyContinue reading “2 PETER‬ ‭1:20‬‬‬”

2 TIMOTHY‬ ‭2:8-10‬ ‭‬‬

“Always remember that Jesus Christ, a descendant of King David, was raised from the dead. This is the Good News I preach. And because I preach this Good News, I am suffering and have been chained like a criminal. But the word of God cannot be chained.

1 JOHN‬ ‭5:18‬

“We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the One who was born of God keeps them safe, and the evil one cannot harm them.”‭‭ 1 John‬ ‭5:18‬ ‭NIV‬‬ Christian’s who allow for sin to take root in their lives are not people of faith. This is John’s conclusion. These areContinue reading “1 JOHN‬ ‭5:18‬”

AN EASTER LETTER FOR THE DISTANCED CHURCH / APRIL 12th, 2020

To the Body at Aletheia. In times past, the church has forgotten who it is. It has often mistaken function for identity and forsaken the privilege of open worship for the convenience of choice of worship. But in times such as this where the trials of the day shape tomorrow’s every day, the church hasContinue reading “AN EASTER LETTER FOR THE DISTANCED CHURCH / APRIL 12th, 2020”

ABF’S ROLE IN GATHERING MISFITS

One might say that the situation, at large, is what necessitates a local body. This is consistent with how Paul planted andContinue reading “ABF’S ROLE IN GATHERING MISFITS”

ON SOLIDARITY IN THE BODY

This is something I have had to learn as well. My heart has been broken more than a few times by those I considered to be fellow soldiers with me. In the beginning of my adult ministry, I had never seen people come and go. When people started to leave, it was very difficult. EspeciallyContinue reading “ON SOLIDARITY IN THE BODY”

ON POLARIZATION OF THE CHURCH

 Yes, I believe that the Polarization process of “separating the wheat from the tares” into an Apostate church and the true believers is accelerated. I think this is mostly due to technology. It connects us. Now more than ever, a hive mind has begun to emerge and a war is taking place that is noContinue reading “ON POLARIZATION OF THE CHURCH”
