• The Noetic Effects of Sin

    Romans 1:18–23

    Atheists claim that there is not enough reason to believe God exists. In Romans 1, Paul proves otherwise. All men see God in creation but suppress the evidence in sin. Good apologists for the Christian faith always remember that. As ...Read More

  • Lamech’s Arrogance

    Genesis 4:23–24

    Modern man falsely assumes the Lord will never repay him for his wickedness. Instead of repenting of their sin, the impious, as John Calvin writes, “rage against those chastisements of God, which ought at least to render them gentle.” Yet ...Read More

  • Promised Land Denied

    Hebrews 3:18–19

    When Jesus says “if you love me you will keep my commandments” (John 14:15), He points out the close connection between belief and obedience. Because Jesus is God, His commandments are found from Genesis 1 all the way to Revelation ...Read More

  • Jesus the Bread of Life

    John 6:22–51

  • God-Moving Prayer

    Genesis 18:16–33

    Sometimes we think our prayers are pointless because we know God’s mind cannot be changed. Yet we do not know what the Lord has decreed, and Scripture is clear that our prayers really do have an effect in God’s plan ...Read More

  • God Is Truth

    John 14:6–7

    Postmodern philosophy looks at how each person perceives things differently and concludes that no ultimate standards exist. The fact that we all have different perspectives only shows that we are not omniscient; yet it does not follow that no being ...Read More

  • The Duality of Man

    Daniel 12:1–2

  • The Olivet Discourse

    Matthew 24:3–8

    This approach to the Olivet Discourse does not deny Christ’s future coming in glory “to judge the living and the dead,” as the creeds say. Those who advocate this view just argue that most of Matthew 24 is not directly ...Read More

  • The Death of Ezekiel’s Wife

    Ezekiel 24:15–27

    Today’s passage illustrates that God is working for the ultimate good of His people even in tragedy (Rom. 8:28). Sometimes, achieving those ultimate goods means suffering in the short term, but one day we will see that the suffering was ...Read More
