Testimony

Below appear my basic ideas that will be fleshed out in a book that I am tentatively calling Testimony. Testimony Copyright 2014 Jesse Mullins Revelation and testimony are two different things. For Christians today, revelation lies in the past. It is what transpired between God and the human being who...

Nancy Pearcey: A Q&A

The author of Total Truth and Saving Leonardo shares her thoughts on the New Yorker’s controversial and disparaging profile of Michele Bachmann, a profile that (some say) tried to marginalize Pearcey and her one-time teacher/mentor Francis Schaeffer. This interview was conducted Aug. 16, in the week...

The New Yorker Takes Aim on Michele Bachmann, Nancy Pearcey, and Francis Schaeffer—and Misses

If Newsweek thought they had set the bar impossibly high for outré mockery of presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, they can think again. The once-redoubtable New Yorker, formerly a paragon of impartiality and objectivity, trumped Newsweek with its own patently partisan takedown of the suddenly prominent...

Thrice Anointed

In Acts 2:36, we find Peter speaking these words: “Therefore let all the house of Israel know for certain that God has made Him both Lord and Christ—this Jesus whom you crucified.” We tend to pass over this verse without noticing what it says. But if we examine it closely, it holds something...

Oh, the challenges of doing a website's back end. : - )  The rest of this message is mere...

Nancy Pearcey: A Profile

Gifted, resourceful, and unwaveringly focused, Nancy Pearcey embodies the spirit of a generation of Christian thinkers that has more than held its own in a secularist and even “agnostic” age. Called “the modern-day successor to Francis Schaeffer,” she has quietly risen in stature through three...

Test Page – for Testing PDF insertion

There is a paragraph that follows this one. That paragraph was inserted months ago, when I opened this post as a "Placekeeper" post. I'm adding this line just to explain that, and to add some copy to this test page. I will try to insert a pdf into this page where I would normally insert a jpg photo. If you...

Why Life and Forgiveness Are Two Different Issues

On the question of sin and death, as to whether the child of God is subject to either, I have a thought that might seem radical but I think it holds up surprisingly well. First, I will admit that I DO believe that sin still exists and death still exists. As we read in I John 2:1: “My dear children, I write...

Did Christ’s Victory Result in the Removal of the Law of Sin and Death?

One of the biggest mistakes I notice in the world of Bible study stems from a failure to maintain distinctions between the Law of Moses and the Law of Sin and Death. A generation or two ago, such vital distinctions were much better understood by the average Christian. But believers today hear almost nothing...

God Blessed America

God Blessed America In a world where the mere mention of God in a public setting or context can draw more concern and dismay than any number of profane messages, we must stop and ask ourselves what has happened to steer things so far down so many undesirable paths. Abraham Lincoln wrote, “It is announced...
