All in campus preaching

a sign here, a tract there

Why does the Church complicate the Great Commission? Why do missions and evangelism strategies have to be so complex, so “contextual,” and so accommodating to the world?

The Apostle Paul warned the Corinthian believers: “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ” (II Corinthians 11:3).

i heard the bells

The angels saw fit to celebrate the birth of the Christ child (Hebrews 1:6), so should we; but not simply His birth during a single season of the year. Celebrate His incarnation, His death, His burial, His resurrection, and His soon coming to "rule all nations with a rod of iron" (Revelation 12:5), a daily celebration worthy of all seasons. And, to truly celebrate is to ANNUNCIATE . . .

the blessed hope

Praise God that the Church has been delivered from the wrath to come (I Thessalonians 1:10).  We are not promised deliverance from the wrath of men or the wrath of the devil. Even now, by these we are troubled on every side. But, what's coming is the WRATH OF GOD poured out upon this world. And, from that, the saint has been promised deliverance--as Enoch was delivered, as just Lot was delivered . . .
