Why Do Some People Say They Have “Fallen In Love With Jesus?”

October 1st, 2018 by

Why do some people say they have “fallen in love with Jesus?” To me, falling in love refers to romantic love. We don’t have that kind of love for Jesus, do we? “Love is love” is an expression that has become popular in our culture. Most of us realize, however, that this isn’t really true. Keep reading…

On The Sea Of Life

July 10th, 2018 by

Is life a journey or a playground? A journey has a destination, and it has a road that leads to that destination. A playground doesn’t lead anywhere; there are no roads, just a lot of open space to play in. I think most of us like to say that life is a journey; but I Keep reading…

Why Does God Seem Different In The Old Testament As Compared To The New Testament?

May 7th, 2018 by

Since the early church, many believers have perceived a difference between the god of the Old Testament (OT) and the god of the New Testament (NT). In the OT, YHWH often comes across as a force to be reckoned with, passing rigorous laws and exacting the most severe punishments. In the NT, Jesus seems more Keep reading…

Reflections On Holy War

October 7th, 2017 by

What are we to make of the presence of holy war in the Scripture? When the descendants of Jacob came out of Egypt, they were organized into the people we call the Israelites, and they were commanded to take possession of the land then occupied by the Canaanites. This process involved armed conflict, and though Keep reading…

Did Paul Have A Choice About Being A Christian?

January 5th, 2016 by

Did Paul have a choice about being a Christian? Questions about free will are nowhere explicitly dealt with in the Scriptures. The views that theologians have about them must therefore be held tentatively since they have to be dealt with by way of implication. In order to address this one, I am going to back Keep reading…

What Does It Mean To Worship The Lord In Spirit And In Truth?

August 5th, 2015 by

What does it mean to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth? The phrase “in the Spirit and in truth” is taken from John 4:24. It is part of the larger story of Jesus’ famous talk with the woman at the well, and our understanding of it needs to be situated in that context. Keep reading…

Did Jesus Have To Experience Temptation?

May 5th, 2015 by

Did Jesus have to experience temptation to know what we go through? Doesn’t he just know? God is omniscient, which literally means that he is “all-knowing.” However, when the Bible uses the verb “to know,” it often is not referring to our knowledge about things, but to our experience of them. Thus, to say that God Keep reading…
