Christ revives. Christ restores. Christ reconciles. Christ resurrects dead things and gives them true life. As Christians living in the West at the tail end of 2015, we tend to have little trouble accepting this beautiful truth as it applies to men’s souls. And that’s about it. When it comes to art, law, economics, business, […]
Will we give up our Social Security checks to stand against “gay marriage” in America? Or child sacrifice in America? Or openly operating mosques in America? Will we give up our Disability and/or Unemployment and/or Public Schools and/or Food Stamps and/or Medicare and/or Medicaid? Are we ready to give those things up if that’s what’s required to take […]
‘Round this time last year we posted On October 31, are we walking dead or are we supernatural reformers? There we asked a handful of questions, including: What is true biblical Reformation? What does the supernatural Gospel do to a person who, by the grace of God, repents and believes in response to the command to do so? […]
So what is today to you? Is it Halloween, Reformation Day, or just another Friday? Most professing Christians would go with the first or the last. The middle option usually isn’t even on our radar.

Intro to Fire – The Power and Purpose of a Common Believer (Excerpt from “Fire Breathing Christians”)
This has been a long time in the making, but the day has finally come…
Posted here is the introduction from Fire Breathing Christians – The Common Believer’s Call to Reformation, Revival, and Revolution. The book will be released in late October. In the days leading up to launch, I will be posting excerpts from many of its 21 chapters so that you might get a feel for the material without having to go to the trouble or expense of purchasing a copy. Of course, if you like what you see, I fully expect you to buy at least three copies.
Denningtonism is here.

I am a sucker for good sci-fi.
Star Wars hit the scene when I was five, and that was all she wrote. I was hooked. From there I dove deep into the original Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica series and have been thrilled to see both successfully relaunched in recent years. There’s no doubt about it: I have embraced my inner geek.
Our pews are full, but our heads are empty. Our spirits starve for truth.
Perhaps these pews are full because our heads are empty, having been spoon-fed a gospel of convenience, ease and worldly accommodation. The hollow theology pouring forth from American pulpits today may have attracted quite a crowd, but for the most part these are little more than gatherings of rebels come to loot the honor of God as they relentlessly seek to conform Him to their will.
“The Christian should reject decisively the thought that eternal life is to begin when this physical life is over. We read on a tombstone that a man “entered into eternal life” on the day of his death, but the Bible teaches that for a Christian eternal life begins, not on the day a man enters heaven, but on the day eternal life enters into the man through the new birth.”
