Should we be training our disciples up in theology before we can trust them to understand the Bible? No. In fact, giving them a theology before they are trusted to understand the Bible does more damage than you might think.

There are large organizations calling themselves the true church of Jesus Christ. The main reason they insist that they are the true church is because they lay claim to apostolic succession.

If there is one doctrine that people cannot tolerate about Biblical Christianity, it is that it clearly teaches people that God sends individuals to a hot hell for all eternity. The question itself seems to settle the issue. It insinuates that it is illogical to believe both. E...Keep Reading
At dinner the other night, my Friend Mike was showing us some good ole YouTube videos of hamsters wiping out on hamster wheels. The funny thing about hamsters is that no one really trains them on how to use these contraptions. If there's another hamster there to demon......Keep Reading
