The Three Most Common Temptations
The word “world” may be used to refer to the physical world (John 1:10) or to the people of the world collectively (1 John 2:2). In those senses, there is nothing immoral about Christians loving the world. However, John also uses the word “world” to refer to the evil, organized system under Satan, which operates through unbelieving people who have been taken captive to do his will. This demonic system is chiefly characterized by the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, and the boastful pride of life.

Wine, Weed, & The Regulative Principle
We don’t need a Conservative Resurgence, we need a Christian Reformation. Getting America back to the 90’s simply won’t do, we must get all the way back to the Scripture. National repentance is the only way, and it must start with the Church.
The Spirit Of The Age vs. The Spirit Of God
In this episode of Theology Applied, Phil Johnson and Joel Webbon discuss the important differences between “the spirit of this age” and the Spirit of God. Christians desperately need the discernment to distinguish between the two.
I Wish Pastor John MacArthur Believed This…

Premillennialism: An Exercise In “Shortsightedness”

Can’t you see how things keep getting worse?” Things do sometimes look bleak when we focus on one generation in one nation. However, when we survey the scope of the whole world over the past 2,000 years, things appear to be trending in the right direction.
How Should Christians View Mark Zuckerberg’s “Metaverse”?
What are your thoughts on the forthcoming MetaVerse from Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook? It appears to be essentially a modern day Tower of Babel. How should Christians engage with it? Is it sinful to “leave this world” to enter into Augmented Reality?
Should Christians Listen To Ben Shapiro And The Daily Wire?
In this episode of Questions, Pastor Joel Webbon shares his thoughts on The Daily Wire by reminding Christians of the important warning provided for all of us in Psalm 73. Pastor Joel also provides a very clear breakdown of the religious beliefs held by each of the hosts on The Daily Wire: Ben Shapiro, Matt Walsh, Michael Knowles, and Andrew …
How America Became Enslaved | Psalm 106
“When [Israel] had got the good land God had promised them they had no zeal against the wicked inhabitants whom the Lord commanded them to extirpate, pretending pity; but so merciful is God that no man needs to be in any case more compassionate than he.” -Matthew Henry
Jesus Is Not Merely The Lord Of Your Heart
Jesus is not content with the private lordship of your precious little heart. Jesus is Lord of all. When Christians begin to live this way, persecution will come. Perhaps, Christians in America have experienced so little persecution in the past because our religion has been merely “spiritual” and never a threat to the culture.
US vs THEM? | Defining The Enemy
