Unless our country repents and turns to Jesus Christ, all the right political actions will help little.

Scripture of the Week: In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe. The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven (Hebrews 1:1-3).

Quotes of the week: New-England was a wilderness planted by a people, generally so remarkable in their holy zeal for the ordinances belonging to the house of God, that for the sake of enjoying the administrations of those ordinances with scriptural purity, they had undergone the severe persecutions which at last exiled them into that American wilderness. Cotton Mather, Magnalia Christi Americana, 1702.

Here is a sermon I gave on Philippians 1:6: He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.

Origins of Sunday Worship in the Early Church: the thesis I wrote for my master's degree in Biblical Studies from Azusa Pacific University.
