Emotional vs. Emotionalism : What’s the Big Deal?



Because I am pursuing a MDiv degree from Denver Seminary, I often hear students and even professors discuss their fears of emotions within the church during worship. They will often argue that the church is a place of reverence and respect for the presence of God, and new movements within the church, especially Charismatic […]

The Gospel : It’s Good News for a Reason

The gospel is not just something we needed at conversion so we can spend the rest of our Christian life obsessed with performance; it is something we need every day—the only source of our sanctification as well as our justification.  – MICHAEL HORTON

The Glorious Creator

James 3: Two ears, Two eyes, One mouth

When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal. Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. Likewise, the tongue […]

A Letter From God #4

“13 Now when Jesus heard this, he withdrew from there in a boat to a desolate place by himself. But when the crowds heard it, they followed him on foot from the towns. 14 When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them and healed their sick. 15 Now when it was evening, the […]

Psalm 23: Lead Me My Shepherd


The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and […]

A Letter From God #2

“Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and after blessing it broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, “Take, eat; this is my body.” And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying, “Drink of it, all of you, for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for […]
