#024: Has The Bible Become Our Idol? [Podcast]

Has The Bible Become Our Idol?

This week I posted multiple status’s about the Bible on Facebook and it really blew up.

I knew some of what I had to say would be considered tough to swallow by some and rejected by others… but I always want to challenge people on what they believe. Especially if I strongly believe that belief to be incorrect.

In fact many still insist on calling the Bible – the “Word of God” which of course it isn’t.

Today we are going to unpack sanctification, what it means and what the Bible has to say about the process. [Read more…]

10 Reasons Jesus Would Get Kicked Out Of Church

We often like to transplant ourselves into the Bible when we read the scriptures.

Especially the gospels.

I mean who doesn’t like to imagine themselves there in the midst of Jesus’ ministry.

Now obviously you and I would be two of the 12 disciples… we’re pretty awesome, right?

But sometimes I find myself thinking… maybe I’m more like a Pharisee. [Read more…]
