“When in Corinth, Don’t Do as the Corinthians Do” (A Bible Study of 1 Corinthians 6:12-20)

      I'd like to start off with a quick story. Somewhere out west, a woman was driving her new Buick into town. It was a clear day, and there weren't that many people on the road. She was just sort of coasting. And it was your basic highway, two lanes in each direction. … Continue reading “When in Corinth, Don’t Do as the Corinthians Do” (A Bible Study of 1 Corinthians 6:12-20)

On August 23rd, 2005, a tropical storm began to form off the coast of the Bahamas.

Those Who Forget History… (A Bible Study of Jude 1:1-13) – Part 1

My worst subject in school was always history. After all the years that I spent half asleep in my history classes, I can only tell you three things about history. George Washington had wooden teeth. Lincoln freed the slaves. And we landed on the moon. And I'm totally guessing that it happened in that order. … Continue reading Those Who Forget History… (A Bible Study of Jude 1:1-13) – Part 1

Stray Dogs

There were two issues that it took me some time to come to terms with after I became a Christian. Having been a dispensationalist, the first was to get over my unbiblical understanding of eschatology (But that is an issue that I’ll save for a later post). The other was an issue that seemed small … Continue reading Stray Dogs

What Has My Blamelessness Done For Me Lately: A Bible Study on Job 35:1-8

The first thing that typically comes to one’s mind when they hear the name 'Job', is Job himself. Others might say the word 'Suffering', which is also fitting since the name 'Job' literally means “One who is persecuted”. We tend to think of 'the man' who lost everything he had and persevered to the end … Continue reading What Has My Blamelessness Done For Me Lately: A Bible Study on Job 35:1-8
