The Revelation: Part Two

THE REVELATION OF CHRIST to the apostle John on the Island of Patmos contains much symbolism. It presents valuable explanations and instructions regarding the Doctrine of "Last Things," or Eschatology—the Christian doctrine concerning what will happen in the final days. When will Christ return? What will happen when He comes back. What has to occur …

I Am Redeemed!

WHAT DOES IT MEAN to be "redeemed?" Sure, I could list theological, psychological, and sociological definitions, and there is nothing wrong with that approach. Definitions help define us. They allow us to compare, analyze, ruminate, consider, relate. We quantify and qualify through definitions. Relative to theology, definitions establish parameters; they provide the comfort of knowing …

Sometimes Things Just Don’t Go as Planned

IN THE INTEREST OF full disclosure, I sometimes rush into projects pregnant with desire and intention only to hit wall after wall.

The Revelation: Part One

THE REVELATION OF CHRIST to the apostle John on the Island of Patmos contains much symbolism. It presents valuable explanations and instructions regarding the last days, which began the moment Christ was crucified. The Doctrine of Last Things, also called eschatology (from the Gr., eschata), is the "last chapter" in God's story of redemption. In …

First Principles: Part One

I HAVE REFERENCED Trevor Hart and Kelly Kapic in the past regarding what constitutes Christian theology. Hart describes the theologian as "...fidelis quaerens intellectum: a believer seeking understanding... theology is the attempt by faith to understand itself, its object, and its place in today's world" (1). Hart calls this "faith thinking." Kapic assures us that …

Paul on Reconciliation

REGARDLESS OF WHAT OTHERS think of us, we are forgiven, redeemed, restored, set free from the past. Our lives have been turned around through the grace of God and the power of the cross. Lies, deceit, selfish motivation, manipulation, provocation—all are gone. We were not merely "remodeled" or "refurbished." Rather, the old self has passed …
