The gospel is a triumph and a triumph is the gospel. These words bind everything I know to be true into one beautiful turn of phrase. But how is it undone by the adversary and the western world’s largest religion?
It is taught that the salvation of God through Christ is a gift available to all, free of all charge. However, it is also taught that this very salvation will not be experienced by all. Can something be so free yet so disastrously conditional?
Who is God to you? Does God share the attributes of you and me? Or has He done that which no man could ever do?
Does Isaiah tell us that God is the one who creates evil? If so, why is that a good thing?
Did Jesus descend into Hell and raise Himself up on the third day? It’s a widely held belief, however, there might not be as much Biblical evidence to support it like we at first thought.
What does Paul mean when he speaks of God distributing a measure of faith to those in the body of Christ? Is faith a thing that can be measured and bottled up?
The Christian message, taught in the church today, is an agreement between two parties: God and the human race. But what if the cross changed that? How would we view atonement differently?
One of the leading doctrines of atonement is that Jesus, whilst on the cross, took the wrath of God deserved for us upon Himself. But is this view supported by the context or have we misunderstood the cross?
When we speak about sharing the gospel, what gospel are we talking about exactly? Knowing the existence of two gospels and the difference between them can resolve one of the biggest confusions of modern Christianity: grace that requires works.
What does it mean to be “Born Again”? The church has taught that it is the reformation of the self, a renewal of the flesh that will become more inclined to God. But did the cross do something even more?
A few years ago I responded to a few videos from atheist activist Hemant Mehta (which you can find here, here, and here) and I thought I’d settle back into the flow of things with a fun response to one of his new videos.
What does it mean to “be saved”? If the reality of our salvation has been brought by Christ Jesus, what should our evangel be?
If the salvation of all is true and we are entirely helpless on our own, what then is the reason for belief?
Have you ever been told that sin wasn’t God’s plan or that God never intended for evil and death to enter into the hearts of man? Is this the gospel we should be believing?
The Gospel of God’s grace is the greatest news one could ever receive. And yet, the Christian gospel is anything but good.
