  • Unquestionable Authority

    from Burk Parsons Mar 09, 2009 Category: Articles

    I am terribly vexed. I have just finished reading an article from the notoriously left-wing magazine Newsweek. In the cover story, "The Religious Case for Gay Marriage," author Lisa Miller argues the case for gay "marriage" using the Bible as her authority. Miller opens with this line: "Let's try for a minute to take the religious conservatives at their word and define marriage as the Bible does."

    I am a Christian, and I am a Protestant. I am a Christian because I trust Jesus Christ alone, believing that salvation is accomplished by grace alone through faith alone because of Christ alone.

For the Muslim, paradise comes at the expense of the death of many, for the Christian it comes at the expense of the death of one (Rom. 5:15). Keep Reading

    from Burk Parsons Nov 04, 2008 Category: Articles

    It's hard to believe that it was nearly a decade ago that we witnessed the turn of the third millennium. If you recall, on New Year's Day several network TV stations featured live coverage from around the world. It was an international spectacle with an estimated viewing audience of more than one billion worldwide. With great intrigue I watched as each culture welcomed the new millennium in its own way according to the customs of its heritage. Fireworks, music, singing, dancing, parades- -- all in celebration of the new millennium. Keep Reading
