Minimum Wage and God’s Law

The Federal Minimum Wage (FMW) is usually not thought of as a mechanism that oppresses the poor. Taking its intended purpose at face value (i.e. help low-skilled workers earn more income) would lead us to think the exact opposite. But that is exactly what the minimum wage accomplishes. It is a man made law thatContinue reading “Minimum Wage and God’s Law”

Healthcare and God’s Law

The idea of a complete government take-over of healthcare is growing in popularity in the US. You can expect it to be a hot-ticket issue for future presidential campaigns. Those who advocate for it let loose their battle cry, “healthcare is a right, not a privilege.” Behind this phrase is the desire for more governmentContinue reading “Healthcare and God’s Law”

The Great Commission is the Cultural Mandate Reinstated in Christ

Cultural historian, Johan Huizinga once uttered, “If we are to preserve culture we must continue to create it.” Building culture is the highest calling for Christians. It is what God originally made mankind to do for his glory. God first established this calling in Genesis 1:28, also known as the Cultural/Dominion Mandate, and after sinContinue reading “The Great Commission is the Cultural Mandate Reinstated in Christ”

The Case For Preterism: Interpreting prophecy as past

The mainstream interpretation of Bible prophecy today teaches that mankind is currently waiting for a future Great Tribulation. Earthquakes, peals of thunder, famine, deadly world wars, and destruction have all been said to be a global calamity that bring planet earth to a catastrophic end. But is this interpretation of prophecy really what the BibleContinue reading “The Case For Preterism: Interpreting prophecy as past”

“For unto us a child is born”: The never ceasing progression of Christ’s government

Everyone loves the Christmas season for different reasons, whether it be the gifts, carols, family gatherings, eggnog (with brandy), or ugly festive sweaters. I for one always eagerly await this joyful holiday to hear one of my all-time favorite passages of Scripture—Isaiah 9:6-7 read in church. If you don’t remember it from last year’s ChristmasContinue reading ““For unto us a child is born”: The never ceasing progression of Christ’s government”

The Extent of Christ’s Mediatorial Dominion

There is no doctrine in all of Scripture more forgotten than the Mediatorial Dominion of Christ. Rarely is it ever chosen to be taught in Bible studies or devotionals. The doctrine is so neglected that we’ve forgotten what it means for Jesus to be king. What exactly do we mean when we sing on SundayContinue reading “The Extent of Christ’s Mediatorial Dominion”

God’s law and the Republican Party

When I first became a born-again believer, I somehow fell under the impression that Christians must also be Republicans when it comes to political issues. After all, it certainly seemed to be a more righteous ideology than the one held by crooked politicians like Obama, Sanders, Cortez, or the Clintons. I knew I shouldn’t beContinue reading “God’s law and the Republican Party”

The Necessity of Christ’s Kingship

When the Apostle Paul was dealing with division among the church at Corinth, he asked the rhetorical question, “Is Christ divided?” Paul’s question is most relevant today, particularly regarding Christ’s threefold redeeming offices, those being: (1) Prophet, in revealing to us, by his word and Spirit, the will of God for our salvation; (2) Priest, inContinue reading “The Necessity of Christ’s Kingship”

Christians need to stop saying “The world is getting worse”

Setting goals as a Christian is always important. We make goals and future plans for our families, careers, education, relationships, and most importantly for Church ministry. Our goals are never set too low when it comes to our personal lives, but when it comes to Church ministry, we often set the goal embarrassingly low. Christ,Continue reading “Christians need to stop saying “The world is getting worse””
