Possessing Our Inheritance

It seems there was this man that for all of his life lived in need. No matter what he attempted, it seems he could never get ahead. One day he received notification that a distant relative had died and left to him their mansion. Obviously this man was elated. Finally something had gone right for him.

Upon receiving the deed and keys to the mansion, this individual proceeds to his new possession. As he arrives, he is struck with awe and amazement at its size and grandeur. With great… Continue

The Origins Debate

(Originally published 4 Feb 2009. Updated 25 March 2009.)

The whole genre of discussion regarding Origins has become a subject of utmost importance lately. As many already know, I feel a strong urgency from God to help the Church defend His Word against modern Evolutionary paradigms that have risen and are invading even the Church itself. Without compromise, regardless of what modern liberal theologians (including laymen) or the religious (or not) scientific community professes,… Continue

The Foundation of Genesis

(Originally published 5 Feb 2009 on EA. Updated 25 March 2009.)

The Bible firmly declares, "be ready always to give an answer (Grk. apologia, a defense) to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meakness and fear" (1 Pet. 3:15). I do not expect every laymen or minister to articulate a defense against evolutionary ideologies, but I do want to warn the Church against the lies that Satan is currently using to invade the Church—the same lies he told Eve in the… Continue

Some background info on Nathan

This was in response to a message from Donnie. I've put it on here at his suggestion that others be able to see it as well.

I've been in Latvia as a teacher in an English-speaking international school for a few years. Before that, we were two years in Morocco teaching as well. I'm originally from Arkansas, but spent several years in Indiana where I went to university and also in France where I studied and worked for a few years as well. Having a… Continue

Born to Believe?

Recently there has been some research that people apparently are born believing that everything has purpose and design, and that makes them predisposed to Creationism.

In 2008, Dr. Justin Barrett of Oxford University's Centre for Anthropology and Mind revealed that children as young as one year are able to recognize when an intelligent mind is at work, and to distinguish between what inanimate objects and people can do. For example, the research found that babies were surprised when… Continue

Traditional Church VS Apostolic Church

In an earlier article, "Why We Are Not Apostolic," we presented the definition of tradition. To summarize, it is the act of giving over, giving up or surrender. It has the same etymology as the word treason. Jesus said, "Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men," (Mark 7:7-8). Jesus declares the results of these traditions in verse 13, "Making the word of God of none effect through… Continue

Do People Look At You Strange?

When I minister in other countries, there is this barely perceptible, but yet real emotional maybe psychological thing that happens when I return home. It seems that when I arrive back at the first major U.S. airport, there is this sigh and relaxation that passes through me. As I am making my way to immigrations, there is always a little charge when I see the sign that signifies the line for US passport holder or citizens.

After much thought, I have come to the conclusion that this… Continue

Why We Are Not Apostolic

In a previous post, we presented the idea that the proof of being apostolic was not in our doctrine or structure, but it was obediently going and doing what we have been sent to do. The challenge we face is that in many (if not most) believers lives and churches we are not going. Now I understand there are always exceptions and there are churches and believers out there who are being apostolic. However, as a whole we are not accomplishing the great commission. So the question begs to be asked:… Continue
