    The Gospel of John for Seekers, Skeptics and Saints: John 6, Old Testament allusions fulfilled in Christ. Jesus, John 6 and the allusions of Genesis: Allusions, types and allegories are not the prefered primary method of exegesis but added up together, they can give a powerful background narrative of the One who is: "worthy of more glory than Moses” -Heb 13:3.

    John 8: The Christian apologetic on Sin, Forgiveness and Freedom

    The Gospel of John for Seekers, Skeptics & Saints: The Christian apologetic on Sin, Forgiveness and Freedom: John 8:1-11 Jesus Saves...it’s typically the quintessential christian bumper sticker that proclaims an answer that most people have no clue as to what He saves us from? In our day talking about the ‘need to be saved’ often sounds like the need to be rescued from Bigfoot. We seriously doubt there’s any truth to that blurry, power-walking giant ewok but there’s still a small slice of background thought that may still wonder why we seem to intuitively know this world is not as it should be...but we are not sure why it is and who's responsible for it. If Christian’s teach that we need saved, we must ask what we need saved from and why do we need to be saved from it? What is the point of a Savior if we are not convinced we need saved?

    Standing in the Tensions of Power & Providence

    The Gospel of John for Seekers, Skeptics and Saints: John 4:43-54
    1. Jesus ministered to people where they were at even if their motives, understandings or acceptance of the truth wasn’t fully mature. We are called to engage and plant seeds of biblical truth where there is resistance, ignorance or the absence of the truth.
    2. Jesus ministered to the physical sufferings and needs of people. We are called to be go to the those who are experiencing the trials and troubles of life and cultivate a reputation for being helpful and accessible to those who are in need.
    3. Jesus spoke the truth to those who were confused or misguided in their understanding of God and his ways. We must remember that God’s primary saving work on earth is to bring people back into a loving and secure relationship with their Father, that doesn’t mean He will make everything right on the earth before the return of Christ.
    4. Jesus is always working to provoke faith/trust in who God is and what He is doing. We should be challenging people to put their faith/trust in God not in people, places or methods.
    5. The Promise of Power & Providence

    Bonds of Fraternal Feeling: the post Civil War unifying dream of Abraham Lincoln

    A special Thanksgiving message. "With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds...to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations.” -Abraham Lincoln, Second Inaugural Address, Sat, March 4, 1865 Abraham Lincoln established Thanksgiving Day and as we move towards sitting together as families and friends around the Thanksgiving feasts, we need to be equipped as peace-makers and reconcilers without compromising justice, mercy and truth.
    This message is intended to help building bridges instead of barriers in this post-election season. I lay out some Kingdom principles that can help Christians work towards national and local unity in the midst of our cultural diversity. "The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew, and act anew. We must disenthrall ourselves, and then we shall save our country." -Lincoln's Second Annual Message to Congress, December 1, 1862.
