He who has a why to live can bear almost any how. - Friedrich Nietzsche With Rick Warren's The Purpose Driven Life reaching about 40 million and Viktor Frankl's Man's Search For Meaning at about 12 million copies sold, it'd be an understatement to say that people are searching for their purpose. When materialism fails to satisfy and the... Continue Reading →

The Lord’s Recovery

He said to them, 'Moses, because of your hardness of heart, allowed you to divorce your wives, but from the beginning it has not been so.' Matthew 19:8 Due to the upcoming 500th anniversary of the reformation (marked by Martin Luther's nailing of his 95 theses to the door above which I got to see!),... Continue Reading →

The Corporate God-man

In my last two posts, I both laid out a christology that exemplified the divinity and humanity of Christ and described the process of reproduction that He undergoes in each of His believers to make them the same as He is. In short, the Son of God became a man, thus becoming a God-man; and... Continue Reading →

The God-men

In my last post, I tried to give a proper Christology. I attempted to magnify this wonderful God-man, who is both fully God and fully man. Eventually, I wrote about all that our Lord has done for us. He has assumed humanity, lived it perfectly, died for the unrighteous, resurrected as a glorified man (thus... Continue Reading →

The God-Man

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." John 1:1 "Christ Jesus, who, existing in the form of God, did not consider being equal with God a treasure to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a slave, becoming in the likeness of men"...

The Principle of Incarnation

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." Genesis 1:1 In Genesis 1 and 2, God acts as God. He is sovereign, independent, and completely in control. "God created," "God said," "God formed," are all evidence of this. After Genesis 2, you'd be hard pressed to find this sort of direct intervention in the Bible.... Continue Reading →

Satan in the Bible

"That we may not be taken advantage of by Satan, for we are not ignorant of his schemes." 2 Corinthians 2:11 Why would I write a post about Satan? That seems a little creepy. Yet, perhaps the subtle serpent's greatest feat is veiling all of the Lord's believers from seeing who he is, what he... Continue Reading →

The Harder Battle

You may be under the impression like I was that the battle against sin is the lifelong battle. It is what we are fighting against and is the goal of our Christian life. Jesus did not speak of sin as the ultimate battle, however, but rather spoke a much more difficult conflict. The Denial of the... Continue Reading →

The Victory Over Sin

Do you think that it is possible to experience victory over sin today? For the longest time I thought that sin was a nagging problem that takes a life-time of self-willed discipline and determination to reduce. This, frankly, was the result of a shallow understanding of Christ's accomplishment on the cross and my relation to... Continue Reading →

The Human Spirit

Every seeking Christian has a desire to experience the living God. Some believe that God is primarily experienced and known in the mind, leading them to study the scriptures daily and seek to understand it. Others believe that God is primarily experienced in the emotions, leading to an abundance of singing (usually with lots of... Continue Reading →
