Rediscovering God's Word

rediscovering god word

2 Kings 22:8 "And Hilkiah the high priest said to Shaphan the secretary, 'I have found the Book of the Law in the house of the LORD.'" This was a moment of great irony during the reign of young King Josiah of Judah. How could it be that the Word of God was lost and apparently lying unnoticed in the house of God?! Hilkiah the high priest was clearly carrying out his dutie...

Blessing Unrepentant Sinners

blessings sinners

The Roman Catholic Church has recently given permission to its clergy to bless individuals who they know are involved in same sex relationships. To bless someone is to ask God's favor on that person. However, homosexuality is a sin that is condemned throughout the Bible as an abomination before God (Leviticus 18:22; Romans 1:26-27). And despite the Vatican's mild descripti...

The Peace of God

peace of god

Contemplation of the peace of God is a profitable exercise, particularly in these perilous times. The year 2023 has been marked so far by bloody military conflicts, devastating natural disasters, desperate mass migrations, and potentially radical shifts in the geopolitics. Uncertainty is the order of the day and several studies have shown that these events are taking a tol...

Handling Holy Things

handling holy things

God's people are in constant danger of becoming too familiar with His holy things. Familiarity can breed contempt. Much care needs to be taken to examine ourselves so that we are not casually treating with holy things. The consequences of doing so can be serious. Examples abound in the Bible to remind us. There is the tragic account of Nadab and Abihu, the eldest sons of ...

Inaccurate Theology


I am following a new plan for my daily Bible reading in 2023. It's a chronological reading of the entire Word of God in one year. Many books have been written to help readers to appreciate the importance of understanding the "big picture" of the Biblical narrative. I am hoping to get from this plan a clearer overview of the events, covenants, and personalities in the Old T...

Therefore Choose Life

Choose life

According to the Biblical gospel, all people of the world who believe and confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior are granted eternal life as a gift. "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 6:23, NLT New Living Translation). This Scripture emphasizes that we actually earn death through our inherent si...

Unimaginable Things

The first images from the James Webb Space Telescope were released on July 12th, 2022 with much fanfare. There was good reason to celebrate. This telescope comes after many years of planning and intricate design. So far, it has achieved its startup targets and is on track to discover radically new information about the universe. One NASA official set the expectations of sc...

How Has God Loved Us

How Has God Loved Us

If you are a parent who has been diligent in providing materially and emotionally for your child, I think you would be extremely hurt and disappointed if that child tells you to your face that he/she did not believe that you loved him/her. Imagine, then, how God may have felt when the Jews who had returned from the Babylonian captivity questioned His love for them. This wa...

The Unfathomable Gospel of God

unfathomable gospel

Many people have been praying earnestly for God to bring an end to the Covid-19 pandemic. It has caused so much suffering, death, and disruption to people's livelihood and we are all eager to return to a normal living. Well, it seems that those prayers may have been answered - that is, if we are to believe the opinions of some medical practitioners that the Omicron and its...

Listen to Him

It is widely advertised that we are living in the information age. But it's an age that seems to come with much misinformation. Many powerful and influential voices are competing for our attention as we go about our daily lives. Modern marketing techniques have been refined to besiege and beguile our minds. We need a reliable filter to screen out the bad from the good othe...

A Weary World

weary world

I attended the final Lord's Day worship service of the year 2021 at The Reformed Evangelical Church. The list of hymns that day included the carol, It Came Upon A Midnight Clear. It was a strange song. There was no mention of the Lord Jesus or His birth as you would expect in a Christmas song. Instead, the focus throughout the song was on angels bringing a message of hope ...

The Sin of Arrogance

sin of arrogance

"The LORD detests the proud; they will surely be punished" (Proverbs 16:5, NLT New Living Translation). Arrogance is an attitude of pride combined with contempt for the laws of God and other people. It is the opposite of humility. The history of the world is littered with examples of great nations and individuals who have faced God's terrifying judgement because of their ...

The Value of Man

It is common to hear the pop news reporting on the net worth of celebrities. Apparently, this is important information for those fans who follow the lives of famous people. Not so long ago, we used to hear of millionaires. But now, you have to be a billionaire to be noticed. In simple financial terms, net worth is what you own minus what you owe. That's how the world asses...

God's Grace in Dark Times

grace in dark times

Many people who have come to know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord often wonder what is God's will for them. The Bible teaches that His will for our lives includes having an attitude of thanksgiving. "Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus" (1 Thessalonians 5:18, NLT New Living Translation). "All circumstances" include t...

Discerning Between Unbelief and Doubt

discerning between

Spiritual discernment is a precious gift from God. It is "the ability to discern whether a message is from the Spirit of God or from another spirit" (1 Corinthians 12:10, NLT). This gift is especially useful when we are responding to questions or objections regarding the Christian Faith. Spiritual discernment helps to guide one's response in such instances. Sometimes that ...

The Church In This Decade

There is an ongoing discussion in the popular journals and magazines regarding the social impact of the present Covid-19 pandemic. Some analysts have looked at developments in Western society and Western culture after the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic and are predicting a repeat of the Roaring Twenties when the Covid-19 pandemic eventually fizzles out. The Economist points to ...

Two Opposing Views of Jesus Christ

This year marks the centenary of the birth of the English theologian and writer, John Stott (1921 2011). Stott is best known for his book, Basic Christianity, which was rated by Christianity Today as one of the 100 best books of the twentieth century. I consider that book to be recommended reading for any new convert to the Christian Faith. Stott also wrote his apologia, ...

The Calvin Cycle

the calvin cycle

To the zealous theologians who may have been drawn to the topic of this article, I need to state immediately that it has nothing to do with our beloved Reformed theologian, John Calvin. And yet, it has everything to do with what John Calvin described as, "this skillful ordering of the universe [that] is for us a sort of mirror in which we can contemplate God, who is otherw...

The Amen

A few things caught my attention when I first visited the Reformed Evangelical Church in Auzonville Road, Tunapuna, almost ten years ago. One of them was the use of the "Amen" at the end of the hymns that were sung in the worship service. I had not seen this practiced in any of the churches I had visited before. It seemed to me that the congregation was adding a solemn agr...

Christian Responses to Significant Events


It is almost three weeks since the USA presidential elections as I write this post. In the run up to the elections, Christians in and out of America were far from unanimous in their choice of candidate for President. Now that the results appear to be more or less settled, Evangelical Christians are trying to make Biblical sense of the outcome. What are the implications for...

Promise of Adoption


It is true that the Bible presents a prosperity gospel. But it's not about the sensual health and wealth message that is drawing many souls to destruction in places like Africa, Latin America and right here in the Caribbean. Rather, the prosperity of the Biblical gospel is found in the lavish or abounding grace of God in His adopting us as sons. It's an exceedingly great a...

Amazing Water


Amidst all the misery and gloom, there is still a sense of purpose in the universe. For example, the teleological evidence uncovered by scientists with regard to the lowly substance that we call water points to its fitness for supporting life on Earth. The scientific community is finally coming to terms with the fact that the conditions for life on Earth are no accident an...

How Easy Is Your Livestream Worship? God is really good. We know that the present pandemic and its effects on the world are according to His will. While we cannot gather together in churches as we are accustomed, we are thankful that He has made it possible for His people to continue to worship Him via livestream broadcasts on such platforms as the Youtube channel. And, p...
