The Double Inspiration and King James Only Controversies

I believe that the King James Version (KJV) is the best and most accurate translation of God's words in the English language, and it is the ONLY version of the Bible I use. This can get some “Christians” all riled up. I have been accused of being “King James Only” – the idea that the … Continue reading The Double Inspiration and King James Only Controversies

Rethinking the Unrest

Something to think about with all the chaos and civil unrest happening right now. Those who are pulling down statues believe as strongly and passionately about their cause as you do about keeping those statues to remember history. They believe in their cause as much - and possibly more - than you do about evangelizing … Continue reading Rethinking the Unrest

The God Who Laughs

Psalm 2:4 "He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision." When "the heathen rage" (Psalm 2:1) and the kings and rulers of the world gather together "against the Lord" (verse 2), the Lord laughs and mocks them.
