Last week, in the wake of a celebrity suicide, I received a question about whether suicide is the unforgiveable sin.  I answered as following: Answer: Your question is a good one and one that is being asked a fair bit in the aftermath of Robin Williams’ suicide.  When a high profile person takes their own life it makes people think.  While Robin Williams never made a profession of faith, our inquiry into the issue of suicide often stumbles at this very point that you...keep reading»»

Earlier this week I received a question from a congregant relating to last Sunday’s message.  I thought it more than likely that others may have been wondering the same thing.  The Question: I have a question about this week’s sermon and it is when you mentioned that God is with us in our struggles (which I get) and God is against us as well which is where I'm unclear.  I think I know what you mean but when I hear that my mind goes to Matt 12:24-27 when Christ is talking...keep reading»»

FAQ With Pastor Paul

Category: General

One of the questions I’ve been asked a lot over the last 5 years is some version of “What do you think about Mark Driscoll?”  I get this question every time I publish our list of recommended teachers and authors and people notice that Driscoll’s name has never been on it.  Like a lot of folks in the conservative Evangelical world, I appreciate Mark’s theology, his natural gifts and his bold Gospel proclamation, but ……    There were always concerns and those concerns kept me...keep reading»»

WTTB With Pastor Evan

Category: WTTB Devotions

In our RMM reading we come to one of the passages that institutes one of the two ordinances (or sacraments) given by Jesus often called the Lord’s Supper or Eucharist. To prepare for the Passover meal, Jesus gave clear directions to his disciples on how to make arrangements. The reader readily notices the way Jesus foreknows the events that he commanded the disciples to prepare His final meal before entering suffering unto death are eerily similar to the way Jesus foreknows the events he...keep reading»»

WTTB: Acts 5 With Pastor Bill

Category: WTTB Devotions

Many teachers teach today the idea that God will protect them from all harm and meet their needs and desires. They instruct their followers that as we follow God NO ill will befall them. The truth is that though we can trust in God’s protection and provision for our needs, He has not promised to meet our wants nor has He promised that we will escape all physical or emotional harm. In fact, Jesus promises just the opposite for those that will follow Him. In passages such as Matthew 5:10-12,...keep reading»»

WTTB Acts 2 With Intern Jon Brooks

Category: WTTB Devotions

Acts chapter two records the explosion of the gospel after the ascension of Jesus. This starts with the coming of the Holy Spirit, moves into the bold preaching of the apostles, and concludes with a new church of over three thousand people. In this chapter we see the power of the Spirit, power that actually gets the disciples accused of being drunk at 9AM, and the power of the gospel, as it is proclaimed by the apostles for the first time. In the midst of this is one of the most amazing...keep reading»»
