God is for “Change”

There is only much change that a person can handle. That is true. But sometimes we resist change since we are already comfortable with what we have, where we are, and how we are doing. Despite this comfort, many times in the Bible, God shakes this comfort zone to change someone according to what HeContinue reading “God is for “Change””

Nexus Generation for Christ

French Enlightenment philosopher François-Marie Arouet, famously known as Voltaire (1694-1778) once said, “A hundred years from my death the Bible will be a museum piece.” He confidently predicted that the Bible would vanish like a bubble and will be forgotten.

Jesus Christ is Lord

Baptist historian and former missionary to the Philippines, Dr. Leslie Hill, argues that the Lordship of Christ is a Baptist distinctive. I do believe that this doctrine is essential; however, it is not distinctive solely of the Baptists but of Christianity as a whole. John Frame noted that the name “Lord” is found over 7000Continue reading “Jesus Christ is Lord”

“I AM” Jesus

The preexistence of Jesus Christ is foundational in Christology. This doctrine grounds the eternal nature of the Second Person of the Trinity. Jesus is fully aware and truly intentional with the purpose of His coming as the God who redeems His people—a divine entry into history from eternity. In John 8: 58, Jesus declared thatContinue reading ““I AM” Jesus”
