Exposing the Heresies of the Catholic Church: The Pope
Tuesday, February 26, 2013
One of the major, early catalysts in the Protestant Reformation was a book by Jan Hus, a Bohemian Christian who preceded Martin Luther by a full century. The book was De Ecclesia (The Church), and one of Hus’s most profound points was proclaimed in the title of his fourth chapter: “Christ the Only Head of the Church.”
The Pope and the Spirit of Antichrist
Tuesday, February 26, 2013
We know the comparison of the pope to the Antichrist might shock some readers, but it’s not a statement we make lightly. In fact, the spirit of Antichrist isn’t limited just to the Antichrist predicted in Revelation but applies to anyone who positions himself against or in place of Christ.
Exposing the Heresies of the Catholic Church: Grace vs. Works
Monday, February 25, 2013
The New Testament is clear about the nature of saving faith. “For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law” (Romans 3:28). “A man is not justified by the works of the Law but through faith in Christ Jesus . . . since by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified” (Galatians 2:16).

In the last several years, the proliferation of specialized ministries and parachurch organizations has been astounding.

The Abundance of Giving
Monday, February 11, 2013
When you think about coming to church, what aspect do you look forward to the most?
For the sake of this discussion, let’s assume your answer is something spiritually noble—nothing vain or selfish like wanting people to see you dressed in your finest clothes, showing off a new car, or trying to sell goods or services to friends at church. Instead, let’s assume the best—that whatever it is you look forward to most is somehow related to ministry.
The Disciplined Church
Tuesday, February 05, 2013
What is the single greatest contributor to the impact, growth, success, and stability of a church? Some people might tell you it’s having a gifted pastor—someone who can rightly divide the Word of God, and do it in an engaging, enlightening, and entertaining way. Other people might tell you the most important thing is the music—you’ve got to engage people’s emotions through song and sound to keep them coming back for more.
Why Celebrate the Lord's Death?
Monday, February 04, 2013
At the time of Christ’s death, Passover was the oldest of the Jewish festivals—in fact, it was older than any other celebration of the Lord’s covenant with Moses and Israel. It was established before the priesthood, the Tabernacle, and even before the law. It was ordained by God while Israel was still enslaved in Egypt, and it had been celebrated by His people for more than 1,500 years.
Why does that matter in a discussion about communion?
