“And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind…” Romans 1:28

While all that is taking place right now seems complex—unrelenting unrest and violence over “social injustice”, government mandates and shutdowns due to the Chinese-originated coronavirus, a national election, filling the Supreme Court vacancy, etc.—the humanistic worldview demanding societal “transformation” is clear and based on […]

Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. –Jesus (Matthew 5:10)

The American Dream says the “blessed” life is one where you own a nice home, have a well-paying job, send your kids to reputable schools, and retire with plenty of money and time to spend […]

“When Jesus saw the crowds, He went up on the mountain; and after He sat down, His disciples came to Him. He opened His mouth and began to teach them, saying…” Matt 5:1-2

The Sermon on the Mount, as it is known, is Jesus’ most well-known sermon. It is found in Matthew 5-7 with a more condensed version […]

GUEST: Greg Gilbert, Senior Pastor, Third Avenue Baptist Church

One positive result of the coronavirus is that health, family, church, helping others, access to food, and having a job are being re-prioritized as important over the usual trivial pursuits, such as buying things, recreation, and entertainment.

And yet even these important aspects and others—government, political leadership, education, economics—pale in comparison to what took place this weekend about 2000 […]

Now to the one who works, his wage is not credited as a favor, but as what is due. But to the one who does not work, but believes in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited as righteousness.  Romans 4:4-5a

It’s been said that there are really only two kinds of religions: ones based on earned favor (works) and the […]

For it would be better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn away from the holy commandment handed on to them. 2 Peter 2:21

We have reached the final weekend of our three-part series on the America Gospel films, which expose the false teachings and teachers that corrupt the biblical […]

GUEST: BRANDON KIMBER, film producer, American Gospel 1 and 2

Last week, we discussed the first American Gospel film that focuses on some of the false teaching and teachers infecting the church, such as:

  • moralistic preaching (“do good, be moral”)
  • works gospel (“faith plus your good works make you right with God”)
  • attractional church (“gear church for non-believers”)
  • health, wealth, and prosperity gospel (“God will heal you and prosper you […]

GUEST: BRANDON KIMBER, film producer, American Gospel: Christ Alone and Christ Crucified

Christians shouldn’t be surprised that professing Christendom in America is full of fakes, frauds, and charlatans huckstering false teaching and non-saving gospels.  In fact, the apostle Peter guaranteed it in his second letter:

“But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies” […]

The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) is the largest Protestant denomination in the U.S.  Having turned from theological liberalism in the 1980s in an era known as the “conservative resurgence”, the SBC is now in another bellwether battle over three issues, all centered around the question of whether Scripture is sufficient in all matters of life and faith…or not.

Last week in […]

The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) is the largest Protestant denomination in the United States, with an average weekly attendance of over five million people at affiliated churches and an overall membership of nearly 15 million.

A rare example of a Christian organization turning from theological liberalism, as it did in the 1970s and 1980s in an era known as the “conservative resurgence” (previously the denomination […]
