When Does Error Become Heresy?

Michael Riccardi | November 24, 2015

The charge of heresy is a serious one. We cannot be trivial or frivolous in throwing around the term. But Paul’s response to the Judaizers (among many other passages of Scripture) teaches us that there are times when we must draw clear lines of separation, even among those who would call themselves Christians.

Book Review: Transforming Homosexuality

Eric Dodson | November 19, 2015

Transforming Homosexuality: What the Bible Says About Sexual Orientation and Change, by Denny Burk & Heath Lambert (P & R Publishing, 2015) Perhaps no subject is more hotly debated in today’s society than the issue of homosexuality. This topic has dominated political debate and public discourse for much of the past decade, if not longer. […]

10 Questions about Adventism

Nathan Busenitz | November 17, 2015

Last week, I posted an article (with an embedded video) about Seventh-day Adventism. As might be expected, not everyone was pleased with my perspective, and some of the responses were quite heated. In the comments on Facebook, I was called a “counterfeit preacher,” a “Jesuit infiltrator,” an “antichrist,” “one of Satan’s forerunners,” and a “liar […]

Evaluating Seventh-day Adventism

Nathan Busenitz | November 12, 2015

This article is not about politics. But Dr. Ben Carson’s involvement in the Republican primaries has raised questions in the minds of many evangelicals about his religious affiliation as a Seventh-day Adventist. Those questions include things like, “What is Seventh-day Adventism?” and “How should evangelicals evaluate the SDA movement?” Watch Jamie Jackson’s interview with Dr. […]

Soldiers of Christ

John MacArthur | November 11, 2015

On June 12, 1944, just six days after D-Day in World War II, a young lieutenant named Richard Winters led his men to the outskirts of Carentan. As the officer in charge of Easy Company, of the 101st Airborne, he was tasked to clear the large French town of its German defenders. It would be […]

Starbucks, Christmas, and Christians

Nathan Busenitz | November 10, 2015

Facebook has been abuzz lately about angry reactions (particularly from a self-proclaimed evangelical named Joshua Feuerstein) to the new Starbucks holiday cup design. In case you’ve missed the controversy, in years past, Starbucks’ festive cups have featured vibrant images of reindeer, snowflakes, Christmas trees, and the like. But this year, the cup is just plain red. Watch Jamie […]

The Love You Don’t Need

John MacArthur | November 6, 2015

“All you need is love.” So said the Beatles. If they had been singing about God’s love, the statement would have a grain of truth in it. But what usually goes by the name love in popular culture is not authentic love at all; it is actually a deadly fraud. Far from being “all you […]

The Believer and Sanctification

John MacArthur | November 5, 2015

The Christian life is anything but a passive pursuit. The New Testament commands believers to “be all the more diligent” (2 Peter 1:10), to take “every thought captive to the obedience of Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5), to “strive to enter through the narrow door” (Luke 13:24), to “run” that we may obtain the prize (1 […]

The Fruit of Sanctification

Keith Essex | November 3, 2015

The apostle Peter exhorted his Christian audience, “As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance, but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; because it is written, ‘You shall be holy, for I am holy’” (1 Pet 1:14–16).
