What is the Outer Darkness in the Bible? Is it hell?

I have a book on hell coming out in June, titled What is Hell? You can pre-order the Kindle version on Amazon. Between now and then, I will be focusing my podcasts studies on some of the content from the book. We will look at the eight key terms that are often equated with hell, and about a dozen key passages that are thought to teach about hell. If you want to learn the truth about hell, and what the Bible actually teaches about hell, make sure you get a copy of my book, What is Hell? You can a...

When You Do Not Know What to Do

When was the last time a trial came so swiftly and forcefully that you did not know what to do? My wife has lived in chronic pain for eight years. Recently, however, she woke up one morning with new health concerns that brought another hard, confusing, and frightening reality — a heavy one laid on top of the one we’re already living with day to day. We had just moved to a new home, and were going to a new church. I was the new pastor of that church. Our newborn was only six weeks old. ...

Before You Preach a Narrative Text, Study Your Hero

Samson Slaying the Lion (1628) by Peter Paul Rubens You will preach narrative far better if you know this literary archetype. The Bible is full of stories, and most of them revolve around a hero. From Abraham to Moses to Deborah to the True and Better Hero, much of Scripture is a hero’s journey. Which means every preacher needs to understand the literary archetype of the hero. This excerpt from Leland Ryken’s How Bible Stories Work: A Guided Study of Biblical Narrative—free this...

Don’t Read Past This Important Word in Genesis 20:7

“Now return the man’s wife, for he is a prophet, and he will pray for you and you will live. But if you do not return her, you may be sure that you and all who belong to you will die.” — Genesis 20:7 In the drama of the broader story of Genesis 20, we risk missing something quite significant for biblical theology: Abraham is named a prophet. When Abraham sojourned in Gerar, he pretended for the second time that Sarah was his sister. Not knowing this deception, Abimelek took Sarah to be his w...

Do Adjacent Organic Search Results Constitute Trademark Infringement? Of Course Not…But…–America CAN! v. CDF

One of the screenshots from the complaint A charitable fundraising organization, America CAN!, has a registered trademark in the phrase “Write off the car, not the Kid.” The organization purports to help the education of high risk youths, and it claims that “100% of the net proceeds go to the kids.” So the “kid” in the trademarked phrase appears to refer to disadvantaged youths, not tax writeoffs for being a parent. As a parent, the pun didn’t work for me. The lawsuit relates to Make-a-Wish Nor...

This sponsored post is by Bryan Chapell, general editor of The ESV Gospel Transformation Study Bible (Crossway). 4 Approaches to Understanding the Redemptive Nature of Scripture All of Scripture Bears Witness We should be very willing to learn the principles of redemptive interpretation that the New Testament writers employed and exemplified. From these principles, we learn that the more common approach to understanding the redemptive nature of all biblical texts is to identi...

God Is with You in Every Place and Every Season

The Lord said to Abram: “Go out from your land, your relatives, and your father’s house to the land that I will show you.” . . . So, Abram went, as the Lord had told him. Genesis 12:1, 4 (CSB) Twenty-six. That’s the number of different homes I lived in before I was thirty years old. Sometimes moving meant to a new house in the same town, but many times moving meant to a new city far away, where I wouldn’t know a soul. By necessity, I became something of an expert at packing and labeling boxes. P...

Mitzvah-minded unicorn Cross River is on holy mission to foster bank-fintech harmony

“Then I took your ancestor Abraham from the other side of the Euphrates River and led him through the entire land of Canaan. I multiplied his descendants, and gave him his son Isaac.” That’s a passage from Joshua 24:3 in describing how Abraham “crossed over” the demarcation line into a spiritual awakening. It’s also the inspiration for the name of Cross River Bank (CR), led by its charismatic founder Gilles Gade. The Hudson River may not have the holy resonance of the Euphrates; however, the...

Opposition to Amazon HQ2 in Virginia is growing louder in the wake of its New York City defeat (AMZN)

Earlier in February, Amazon announced it would no longer pursue its HQ2 project in New York City, citing pushback from local politicians. Politicians in Virginia, where the other half of HQ2 is set to be developed, have also made some noise and said that they would like to reexamine the deal struck between Arlington County, the state of Virginia, and Amazon. Virginia may have more leverage with Amazon, as the company has no easy recourse if it decides to pull out — aside from reopening a natio...

Who are the Blessed? We are.

I remember hearing a joke which went, “The meek shall inherit the earth, but how long are they going to keep it?” In the “real” world, not long. It the more real world, for eternity. What do all these blessed, or beatitudes, really mean to us? There are two sets of them, today’s reading from Matthew 5:1-12, part of the Sermon on the Mount, which goes on for three chapters (5-7), and the shorter and slightly different Sermon on the Plain, Luke 6:17-26, which was a week ago Sunday’s Gospel, which...

He Gives All of Himself

We need to seek deliverance from our vain and weakening wish to go back and recover the past. We should seek to be cleansed from the childish notion that to have lived in Abram's day, or in Paul's, would have been better than to live today. With God, Abram's day and this day are the same. By one single impulse of life He created all days and all times, so that the life of the first day and the life of the remotest future day are united in Him. We may well sing again (and believe) the truth our f...

Most romantic cities in the world

It’s time to end the City of Love’s monopoly on romance. It’s not that Paris hasn’t earned its reputation as a couples magnet; it’s just that the world is full of cities that could have been designed by Cupid himself, and it’s about time they get the recognition they deserve. Between major metropolises that have been overlooked by honeymooners for far too long and small, storybook cities that’ll make anyone go full-on soppy, these romantic destinations are perfect for lovebirds. 1.

A Visit to the Holy Land: Israel and Beyond

There are a lot of destinations that call themselves holy.  With that said, few places can claim that three of the world’s major faiths call the place sacred.  The land we speak of is Israel.  We recently returned from a two week visit and want to give you the ultimate guide to seeing the sacred sites.  This will be a two part post, with the first highlighting the religious sites of Israel, and the second will be about a side trip into Jordan.  Both are must dos, and compliment each other well....

Even the Demons Believe (James 2:19)

Almost every single time I write a post on my blog or on Facebook about how we receive eternal life from God by faith ALONE, someone  brings up James 2:19 and says “But even the demons believe!” In this current series of posts on faith, I have previously taught about James 2:14-26 with a focus on the concept of “dead faith.” But in this final post on faith, I wanted to focus in on this famous verse of James 2:19, and show why people who quote it do not understand what James is saying.

Board Question #91845: Is God sexist? -Me

I believe he believes in perfect equality between genders. -Sunday Night Banter A: Dear you, This is a question I've thought about a lot within the past year. And I'm still waiting to draw a really satisfying conclusion. There is one conclusion, however, that I feel pretty solid about: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints institutionally treats men as better than women.

The Presentation & Waiting for God

The next step after Jesus’ birth would be to present him for circumcision in the Temple eight days later according to Genesis 17:12. Circumcision was one of the constitutive elements of the covenant made between Abraham and Yahweh. After forty days were completed Mary and Joseph were to go to the Temple with their child for their purification and their son’s presentation. This was the law, according to Leviticus 12:4, because Jesus was the firstborn male. Each firstborn male was to be redeemed b...

Wednesday with Michael Spencer: Shopping the Whole Mall

Wednesday with Michael Spencer Shopping the Whole Mall (2007) It started innocently enough. His name was Tim, and he was a Christian at my high school. There weren’t many of us, and we made friends despite those denominational differences that were supposed to matter so much. Tim invited me to a charismatic prayer meeting at a Catholic church. I’d like the music, he said. I did, and as a side benefit, God ruined church for me for the rest of my life. These Catholics were reading the Bible, sin...
