Oh. My. Goodness. Bill Henson rocks! Last week’s class was divided into two parts. First, a testimony and challenge from Bill Henson, who Skyped in from Massachusetts. And second, an introduction to what Romans 1 has to say about Homosexuality. Clearly, the first half was the best. Bill Henson is the...
Of all the actions Jesus performed, one of the most significant was sitting. I’m serious: “After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high…” (Hebrews 1:3) “But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at...
In talking about “Wisdom Literature,” I’m referring to Proverbs, Job, Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Solomon. These books focus less on giving us direct commands and instead give us wise sayings to live by. Wisdom Literature pushes us to reflect, and in doing so it forms our character. Each of...
In honor of the recent re-release of The Little Mermaid, I’m going to explore this beloved Disney movie from a theological perspective (because everything is ultimately theological).

Bible College students want to change the world. Or at least their church. And they want to do so immediately. At least, that’s how many of my students roll. I completely understand the compulsion to change things overnight. I’ve been there. You read the Bible, you read books on theology...
I wanted to say thanks to the 90+ students who attended my class, “Homosexuality, the Bible, and the Church” this last semester at Eternity Bible College. I loved our interactions, discussions, and the very helpful feedback you’ve given me throughout the semester. As a brief recap, we spent most...
In this fifth blog on the Canaanite conquest, we'll return to the issue we ended our last post with: some passages suggest that all the Canaanites were annihilated, while others suggest that they were not. What do we do with this? One option is that the Bible contradicts itself. And...
Yesterday I wrote about the existence of the external world. This is something that every person has to wrestle with. We can’t deny the existence and the form of the world around us, though some have tried. Even those who deny the external world are still forced to live...
