The essentials of Christianity can all be summed up in what is called the Gospel: the good news of Jesus Christ. That’s pretty much what it comes down to. Heck, we could even boil it down further and say simply, Christ, and we’d still be correct. Although it’s simple, it’s utterly profound, and we’ll see […]Read More What Are the Essentials of Christianity?
Many Christians seem to think that the church today is under some sort of obligation to tithe, but where did that understanding come from? When you read the New Testament, tithing isn’t really mentioned, much less prescribed, but let’s explore this issue a little further. What Is a Tithe? A tithe is simply “one tenth” […]Read More What Does the Bible Say About Tithing in the New Testament?
I remember talking to a co-worker one day who told me that he didn’t drink alcohol because he was a Christian . . . But that got me thinking, “Is drinking alcohol a sin in Christianity? . . .

I say strictly because […]Read More What Is the Doctrine of Original Sin?

Do I believe that God is a Trinity? Yes! I think we have to answer these questions in the affirmative […]Read More The Holy Trinity Explained in the Bible
Predestination is the idea that God has predestined everything that comes to pass, including those who will be saved. In my opinion, there seems to be two errors concerning this doctrine: 1) People deny predestination, or 2) People accept predestination and deny free-will. Both of these errors are unbiblical; a sound Christian theology will affirm […]Read More What Is Predestination?
