Check out our newest video: The Coronavirus and Bible Prophecy. Is this pandemic a sign of the end times? Is it a message from the Lord? If so, how should we respond? Here are two other resources I mention in the video: Coronavirus Bell Curve What Does the Bible Teach About Pestilence, Plagues, and Global […]
<A few days ago I received a note from a young mother who is concerned about the coronavirus pandemic and what it will mean for her children. In this video I read the letter I wrote to her. We need this because we all share her concerns. PS Click here to sign up for the free email sermons.
This morning many people are waking up to a world they never imagined because of the coronavirus outbreak. Here are three quick thoughts about how Christians should respond: 1. Don’t panic. Christians ought to be the calmest people on earth because we know the Lord, and he holds the future in his hands. 2. Prepare […]

We just uploaded a new podcast called Is Christianity in Crisis? We need to hear this because we live in a world that is increasingly hostile to Christianity. I gave this message at the Men’s Conference at Kindred Community Church in Anaheim Hills, CA several weeks ago.
ISIS Threatens US Churches This article is worth reading because the front lines are now churches and cafes and Christmas markets and anywhere people congregate. I have two further thoughts on this: 1) ISIS understands that Christmas is a deeply Christian observance. They attack us because we are the “people of the cross” who worship […]
Next Monday we’re hosting an Election Eve Prayer Time on Facebook Live. We’ll start at 7 PM CT and take a few minutes to pray for the election that takes place the next day. For more information, please watch this five-minute video. Then join us on my Facebook page next Monday at 7 PM CT […]
In the last 24 hours I have an opportunity to revist the sermon I preached on the Sunday after 9/11. At that point America was still struggling with the enormity of what happened just five days earlier. In that sermon, called Living by Faith in an Uncertain World, I wrapped up by giving Five Lessons to Ponder.I share them here because ten years lat...
We all agree the world is in trouble. Our nation is in trouble. What can we do about it? On May 2 I preached a message called The World is Going to Hell at Cannon Beach Conference Center in Cannon Beach, OR. If we take the words of Jesus seriously, there are two things we […]
You never know what a day will bring forth on the radio. All of us remember the horrific video of ISIS beheading 21 Egyptians Coptic because of their Christian faith. Here’s another chapter in the story. American Family Radio invited listeners write brief messages to the families of those men who died. Hundreds […]
Recently we printed a booklet called When the Foundations are Destroyed. This short message encourages Christians to have tenacious, winsome courage in the face of the moral and spiritual crisis facing our nation. After the recent Supreme Court decision legalizing gay marriage, many Christians wonder how they should respond. This booklet provides an answer. We’re […]
The Supreme Court isn’t. There is a court higher than the court that sits in Washington. That court is never divided, never uncertain and never wrong. We show proper respect to earthly courts even when we disagree, but we reaffirm our conviction that there is a Judge who cannot be swayed by public opinion and […]
A few years ago I would have thought that most evangelicals would stay true to the biblical teaching about marriage. Today I will hedge my bets on that issue. The evangelical movement is about to divide. You can’t straddle the fence forever.
How can the church speak the truth in love to this dying generation?
Evidently you can be extremely rich and totally clueless.
Write out what you believe about marriage and put it in your church constitution.
This guest column is written by Brian Bill, pastor of Pontiac (IL) Bible Church. It was announced last week that Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, will give birth to the “royal baby” in July. While this is exciting news to throne watchers, I find it fascinating that no one is calling her unborn child the “royal fetus...
I hadn’t planned on addressing this question until I was asked about it recently. My answer is a simple yes.Evangelical Christians are free to vote for a Mormon if they desire. I say this notwithstanding the great gulf between what we believe and what Mormons believe. There are serious and deeply-felt differences between evangelical Christian...
A friend who serves in leadership at his church called to talk about some big decisions the leadership team is facing. The details don’t matter except to note that the decisions will have a big impact on my friend and his family and on the church he serves. Several times during the conversation (at least four times, I think) he mentioned the …
Consider this a Facebook-focused followup to the Chick-fil-A dust-up earlier this week. A friend wrote saying that she was struggling with certain very unkind things that were posted on her Facebook page. Someone actually put a note on her Facebook page saying that she could take her business elsewhere because he didn’t want to do business wi...
“It’s a great day at Chick-fil-A."Actually that’s only part of what the voice said as we pulled up to the drive-through ordering station. The whole spiel went something like this: “Hi, my name is Amy. It’s a great day at Chick-fil-A. How may I serve you today?” Amy may have added something about the peach m...
Last week I spoke at Cannon Beach Conference Center in Cannon Beach, Oregon. On Friday morning we had a question and answer session based on questions we had received from the audience. During the Q&A time Timothy Greenidge served as moderator. This turned out to be one of the best sessions of the week. Over the next several days I will...
This evening Nik Wallenda will attempt to walk a tightrope across Niagara Falls in an event televised by ABC. While he will be the first to attempt to walk directly across the precipice of the falls, he is not the first to walk a wire from one side to another. That honor belongs to someone else. From his story we learn the true nature of the faith ...
What do we do now?Sometimes it seems as if society has completely lost its moral compass. Where do Christians fit in? How do we speak the truth in love when basic values are under attack? I’ve been thinking a lot about that lately, and for me the answer comes back to three simple words that describe what we need at this moment in history:Tena...
Recently Dallas megachurch pastor T. D. Jakes was asked by Oprah Winfrey to give his stance on homosexuality. Given Oprah’s huge audience and vast popularity in our culture, it would be easy to evade that question by trying to change the subject. Here is what Jakes said:"I’m not called to give my opinion. I’m called as a pas...
