Working Off a List

“For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love.” (2 Peter 1:5-7) A list can be a real lifesaver, can’t it? In the midst ofContinue reading “Working Off a List”

False Prophets

False narratives go all the way back to the Garden. They don’t come down from above, bringing liberation and life—they bubble up from culture and are all just different forms of bondage. They all do the same thing—seek to enthrone us and dethrone our Father. False narratives can affect anyone, at any time and anyContinue reading “False Prophets”

Fake news is something we’ve heard quite a bit about the last few years. Although the phrase is relatively new in terms of popular usage, fake news has been around as long as man has.

Anyway, I didn’t take it to church on Sundays or Wednesday nights so most of the members where I preached weren’t aware that I had it. At home, I always put it in the garage—I neverContinue reading “2 Peter 3–End of the World? (1)”

A lot to learn from Lot

Peter is both warning and encouraging his readers in regard to the tough times that are ahead in 2 Peter 2:1ff. The warning aspect is seen in phrases used to describe the false teachers who will surface from among them. Peter speaks of their “destructive heresies” and “depraved conduct.” He also reminds them that God broughtContinue reading “A lot to learn from Lot”
