John R. Rice On Matthew 16:28

Evangelist John R. Rice (1895-1980) specialized as a public speaker and preacher of the Gospel. However, he was also quite an apt expositor of God’s word. Among some of the conservative Baptist churches in the Bible Belt, as you get closer towards the “buckle” you will often hear Rice’s name mentioned more frequently. It is…

On Scholars & Pseudo-Scholars

In my occasional inroads with heresy, I sometimes run across across “experts” whose purpose it is to defend their respective systems.

Atheism And Children’s Books

Writers of children’s books tend to cast an air of innocence over everything. Instinctively, they understand (as we all do) that the world is far from what it should be. Rather than lying to children, they paint an ideal portrait of the world based on the ideal human which the child really is. It is…
