Jan 30 When One Wife Isn’t Enough: The Problems of Polygamy
Polygamy is the next battleground for marriage in the United States.  In fact, just last month a federal judge declared laws on the books in Utah that guard against polygamy to be unconstitutional.  The state may still outlaw plural marriages, but it cannot prohibit polygamous cohabitating, thus weakening anti-polygamy law.  The plaintiff in the case […] Read More
Dec 18 Why Did Jesus Take on Flesh?
At the center of this and every Christian season is the baby Jesus wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.  This mysterious bundle of joy is none other than the eternal Son of God who took on flesh and dwelt among us (John 1:14).  That’s the very thing we celebrate here at Christmas—the enfleshing […] Read More
Dec 11 7 Reflections on the United Methodist Church’s Discipline Against Rev. Frank Schaefer
It may have been lost on us who hang out in only Baptist circles that our brothers and sisters in the United Methodist Church (UMC) had a fairly serious dust up last month.  For me, I have many friends in the UMC, some of whom are ordained by the church.  In fact, it was one […] Read More
Dec 09 Pastor Ben Interviewed on the “Biblical Thinking” Program
I wrote a blog article on September 19, 2013 entitled, “Yes, Indeed, God Loves ‘Gays’.”  By God’s grace, it’s found quite a bit of attention.  The article was picked up and published by Baptist and Reflector, which is the weekly state newspaper of the Tennessee Baptist Convention, on October 23, 2013, and then on November […] Read More
Nov 08 5 Evangelism Principles on the Way to the Seller of Purple
We Southern Baptists are a Great Commission people.  It’s in our denominational blood!  As we come into the state convention season of SBC life, we will undoubtedly be challenged again and again to share the gospel, sHaRe tHe gOsPeL, SHARE THE GOSPEL!  Indeed, I welcome that clarion call from Scripture because it captures the heart […] Read More
Oct 01 Train Your Children in the Nurture and Admonition of the Lord: An Encouragement to Catechize
The greatest responsibility of Christian parents is to train their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord (Ephesians 6.4). This responsibility is also to be one of Christian parents’ greatest joys. Certainly, we have found this to be true. Recently our hearts were blessed as our 5-year-old son led us in the Lord’s […] Read More
Sep 26 What’s the Difference Between Great Faith and Little Faith?
“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen,” (Heb 11:1).  Everybody has faith in something, even the most diehard skeptic.  The question is whether or not that faith is in the right place and of the right amount. The Scripture tells us that the right place for our […] Read More

    “If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” […]
