G. Campbell Morgan was an excellent teacher, the pastor of The Westminster Chapel, and frequent speaker at the Moody Bible Institute in its early days. I find myself reading from his set of sermons regularly and am never disappointed. As was common in this period, Morgan would take a verse, or part of one and expound on it powerfully. In a men’s meeting recently, we discussed this sentence taken from one of these powerful sermons based on Deuteronomy 8:2 – “As you face the new, never…Continue
There I was excercising my dominion over every beast of the field, and availing myself of every green herb which shall be to me for food: lettuce, tomato, onion, ketchup (or is that a fruit?), and bun, on which was not its seed. Fool that I was, my feet were swift to go to the new In-N-Out Burger here in Dallas.
When I walked in, I suddenly realized that unless the line be shortened there should no flesh be consumed.
Soon, however, I was standing before the…Continue
I just wrote a blog post about this. Unfortunately, I don't have a "replicate to Theologica" option, so I'm just going to link it: http://ps27-4.blogspot.com/2011/07/on-marys-continued-virginity-after.html
I don't check the comments on the actual blog that much, so please feel free to comment here instead. :)

“Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft. Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one. Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwrack, a night and a day I have been in the deep; in journeyings often, in perils of waters, in…Continue

"Mary had a little lamb"
All of us are familiar with this line from childhood. Many may recall seeing pictures of a little girl with a prancing pet lamb at her feet. You may not be able to hear these word, even now, without that mental image in your mind. As charming as the iconic scene may be,…Continue
This week begins a two-month count down to what could be an important opportunity in our global world today. That opportunity is known as Awareness Sunday.
On September 11th of this year, it will mark the 10-year anniversary of the infamous and dreadful 9/11 attacks in 2001. A significant date of remembrance for hundreds of millions of…

This is the story of two sisters--and the man who loved them.
"Now Jesus loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus." (John 11:5)
Mary, and Martha, and Lazarus--Jesus was their particular friend. There's not a friend like Jesus--the soul of kindness, and if anyone had a just claim on that kindness, it is a particular friend.
But one day He disappointed them. Lazarus fell ill, and though they dispatched word to Jesus, they sat at their brother's…Continue
Angels are awesome. They stand in the throne room of God. They have the ability to slay armies. They can appear at the flash of light, fight demons, and even be a comfort to people when the Lord sends them.
But people have an incorrect view of angels.
They think that angels are some special beings, and though it’s true that there are a special category of well known angels, it is something that is attainable for us all. Indeed, I think that not only are angels…Continue
Oh the universe is full of amazing and wonderful things and very few subjects have been the source of more fiery debates than the topic of evolution. But in all the hubbub of debates about creation, or intelligent design, or cosmological origins one major facet of the Christian faith goes unnoticed: the explanation for the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Though the evidence for evolution is vast and far reaching and applied to origins, none of the same thinking has been weighed…Continue
Barring my faulty memory (and if I’m not lazy) I want to post prayers on Monday from all over Church History and then throughout the modern day, and then my own. This is an ancient hymn translated by Longfellow in The Golden Legend.
O Gladsome Light
Of the Father immortal,
And of the celestial
Sacred and blessed
Jesus, our Saviour!
Now to the sunset
Again hast Thou brought us;
And seeing the evening
Twilight, we bless Thee,
