3 days ago
Freedoms Lost, Expect Persecution | Daily Walk 204
Formerly free nations are now turning into police states. Our northern neighbors have lost basic freedoms and a church is under direct attack. Ultimately, this plan is against the Gospel, and today we will look at what is happening at Gracelife Church and how it relates to what happened in Egypt under Joseph's administration. Genesis 47:13-19
Apr 13, 2021
Faith and Religion in America | Daily Walk 203
Today we want to look at Judges and a parallel to faith in America today. Everyone does what is right in their own eyes, but that is contrary to how we are called to walk in faith. This reading looks at how the time of the judges was much like our country now, and that means judgment may be right around the corner. Judges 17:6 Judges 17:1-13
Apr 6, 2021
A Tale of Two Approaches | Daily Walk 202
Should we worry about secular controversies and forget it all to only preach Jesus? There are a few good approaches to this question, and I think it is a gray area decision. Here are two approaches and what they mean.
Mar 30, 2021
Is Jesus a Revolutionary? | Daily Walk 201
Should we go out to raise a revolution for Christ, or are we to live quietly while doing the next best thing? This video asks if Jesus was a wild revolutionary as some people suggest, or what He being as quiet as possible? Matthew 12:20 Daniel 1:8
Mar 23, 2021
Faith to Move Mountains | Daily Walk 200
Today we talk about what faith is. What is real faith and how does it work? Are we living our life in faith or by the ways of the world? John 5:2-8 Matthew 17:19-21
Mar 16, 2021
The Day and the Hour | Daily Walk 199
What did Jesus mean when He said that no one knows the hour or the day? Today we examine this section of Scripture and what it means. Matthew 24:42-51 Matthew 24:1-14
Mar 9, 2021
What Is Unity | Daily Walk 198
Unity is called for by many, but most do not understand it. Today we will talk about unity, segregation, and what the Bible says about being unified in Christ. Galatians 3:23-29 Ephesians 5:11-13
Mar 2, 2021
Zealous For a False Gospel | Daily Walk 197
Our world has become zealous for a false gospel. This is not only present in the church, but it is also present in the secular world where we are banning syrup because of the black logo, Dr. Seuss, and even Mr. Potato Head. This is because the whole world thinks they are most justified in their own eyes. Let me instead press on with the real Gospel. Romans 6:1-2 Genesis 1:26
Feb 23, 2021
Where Is Your Focus?
Our world is far from God right now. When we take our focus off of God, we start seeing the problems and fears in the world. We need to forget about the world and refocus back on God so He will see our faith. This is the solution restoring faith in God. James 4:1-6
Feb 16, 2021
Life is Not Always Black and White | Daily Walk 195
Sometimes life is complicated. This message looks at a few cases where people lied and were still called blessed. How do we navigate the complexities in life with an upright heart? Here I discuss my thoughts. Joshua 2:3-6 Exodus 1:20 Matthew 12:1-7 Matthew 12:10-12
Feb 9, 2021
What is a Pharisee | Daily Walk 194
'Pharisee' is an insult thrown at people who take the Word of God seriously. Today we will look from the Scripture and some other resources to ask and answer what is a pharisee in the light of my critique on The Art of Neighboring. The Art of Shallow Neighboring: https://owic.li/asn GTY Blog Post: https://www.gty.org/library/blog/B170329/~ Matthew 23:1-4 Matthew 23:34-36
Feb 2, 2021
Service and Theology | Daily Walk 193
The church has many great debates about theology and service, and here I want to talk about common goals and purpose, and the importance of service. Theology is important, and there is a place to debate it, but service is also a mark of salvation. This video is not an easy, straight process. Jude 1:3-4 Jude 1:5-6 Jude 1:11-13
Jan 26, 2021
The Coming Persecution | Daily Walk 192
Here in America we are in a new era caused by radicals entering government. All the things the Bible teaches us are now under assault and it will soon be illegal to believe what the Bible says. How will we cope in this brave new world? These are my thoughts. Acts 8:1-8 Hebrews 5:11-14 1 Peter 2:11-12
Jan 19, 2021
The Election and False Prophets | Daily Walk 191
Many televangelists have come out saying that God told them that Trump would be re-elected. The Bible has some very clear signs of what a false prophet is, and these preachers are actually meeting that criteria. These are my thoughts. Matthew 7:15 1 John 4:1 Deuteronomy 18:15-22
Jan 12, 2021
Is the Vaccine the Mark of the Beast | Daily Walk 190
The vaccine has raised many questions, and in the Christian field, some have asked if it is the Mark of the Beast. Here I give my thoughts and reasons why the vaccine is NOT the Mark of the Beast. Revelation 13:15-18 Revelation 10:7 Revelation 11:15-18
Jan 5, 2021
Revelation: Faith or Fear | Daily Walk 189
Revelation is full of symbolism as it details the end times. Today we talk about Revelation being a barometer of your faith. If reading through the end times terrifies you, it is possible you are not placing faith in God. Do not despair, faith will come when you stick with the Bible and prayer. James 1:12 John 15:1-11
Dec 29, 2020
Preparing for a New Year | Daily Walk 188
As the new year begins, we can't sit back and assume that the bad year is gone and the new one will be much better. I have a feeling that the new year will be even more hostile to truth than 2020 was. Focus on God and persevere through anything the new year might bring. James 1:12 Chronological Bible: https://amzn.to/3rE6I0M
Dec 22, 2020
Digital Church is Not Fellowship | Daily Walk 187
Our world is going digital, but that is not good for any of us. Today I talk about fellowship in the church and how it is not achieved to God's standard by having church online. Hebrews 10:23-25
Dec 15, 2020
Tyranny and Christmas | Daily Walk 186
This Christmas season, give yourself the gift of logical thought. I implore you to look at the COVID data for yourself and make up your own mind about whether or not you will spend time with family for Christmas. Check the real data yourself: https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#cases_casesper100klast7days
Dec 8, 2020
Preparing For the End | Daily Walk 185
The end is coming, and we need to be prepared. We will, as Christians, experience part of the Great Tribulation. Jesus gives us commands to be ready, but we also need to have faith in God during the midst of these things. Matthew 24:15-21 Matthew 6:25-34
Dec 1, 2020
The Great Reset | Daily Walk 184
The discussion of The Great Reset has become popular, and this is a move toward a one world government. But we must not fear, we know that will eventually happen, but we need to focus on God, the only one who has actually completed a great reset, and He will cause another Great Reset in the end times. Listen in for a Christian response to The Great Reset. Genesis 6 Matthew 24 Revelation 13
Nov 24, 2020
Common Grace | Daily Walk 183
Common Grace is a theological concept that God grants blessings to all people regardless of their position in Christ. Here we talk about common grace from the Scriptures and how to apply it to our life. Matthew 5:44-45 Matthew 5:13-16 1 Corinthians 7:14
Nov 17, 2020
Doves, Serpents, and Alt-Tech | Daily Walk 182
Christians are being silenced, but turning the other cheek is not become a doormat to be tread under. This is why Jesus told us that we need to be innocent as doves and shrewd as serpents. To this end, we need to use any resources we can to preach the gospel, and that means we need to use alt-tech so our voices can be heard. Matthew 10:16-20
Nov 10, 2020
The President We Deserve | Daily Walk 181
The election is over, but the race is far from won for any candidate. Many Christians are distraught over what has happened at this election. Some are talking about cheating, but I want to remind everyone that God is still in control. God will not have the election stolen from Him and He will give our country exactly what we deserve. Romans 13:1 John 19:10-11
Nov 3, 2020
Can Christians Eat OT Banned Food | Daily Walk 180
Today we will tackle the question of whether or not Christians can eat foods that were forbidden in the Old Testament. We will look at the types of laws and what the Bible actually says. Leviticus 11:1-8 Acts 10:10-16
Oct 27, 2020
Holiness Revisited | Daily Walk 179
Today we return to talk more about Holiness, particularlly in light of the books I have been reading, many of which have centered on the theological points of holiness. Can we know what holiness is or not? What does it mean? Leviticus 11:44
Oct 20, 2020
Getting Lost to be Found | Daily Walk 178
The fallen world does not like sin. They do everything from normalizing it to legalizing it. They want to help people in their sin, and they deny it is sin. This poses a challenge for evangelism because the first step to being saved is to admit we are lost. As our world denies sin, the message of the Gospel gets dimmer. To be saved, we need to first become lost. 1 Corinthians 6:9 Galatians 5:16-21
Oct 13, 2020
Worship | Daily Walk 177
Worship means more than singing before the service. Jesus paints a picture of worship that includes the whole of our life. Here we talk about Jesus's statements on worship from John 4 and how true worship includes music, giving, hearing the message, prayer, and even living our life. Listen in for a discussion on Worship. John 4:19-24
Oct 6, 2020
Responding to Enemies | Daily Walk 176
We don't find enemies any more pronounced than in American politics. This is not a political message, but rather, a message about dealing with enemies appropriately. Join us to see what the Bible has to say. Matthew 5:43-48 Psalm 50:16-21 Psalm 35:22-26
Sep 29, 2020
Antinomianism and the Law | Daily Walk 175
Antinomianism, hypergrace, and easy-believism are all tied together and they are so integrated into the modern church that most people have never even heard the terms. Specifically we want to talk about antinomianism. This means "against the law", or that there is no principles we need to live as when we proclaim the grace of God. Listen in for an explanation. Romans 5:18-6:4 Colossians 2:20-23 Colossians 3:5-10
Sep 22, 2020
Are You Deceived | Daily Walk 174
Today we look at some scripture examining the question: Are we really saved, or are we deceived? Matthew 7 gives us warnings about right faith. Follow along and ask if you are truly saved. Matthew 7:13-14 Matthew 7:21-23 Matthew 7:24-27 James 1:27
Sep 15, 2020
Will God Find Faith in America | Daily Walk 173
As we approach an election, see riots in the streets, and sexual misconduct is everywhere from our most popular streaming service to the California house and senate. As God looks down on the earth, will He find faithful, righteous people, or will He find people who are groping at sin like the Sodomites? The answer to that question will likely help God to determine who leads this country next. Genesis 18:16-33
Sep 8, 2020
Music as a Marker Church for Soundness | Daily Walk 172
Before we allow a church to speak into our life, we need to evaluate if it is sound. Today we talk about music as a marker for the soundness of the church. If we hear music that is about us, our problems, or making our life better, the focus of the church might be on people rather than God. Philippians 4:8
Sep 1, 2020
Culture Sliding into Apostasy | Daily Walk 171
Today we will document the further slide into apostasy and look at one popular company that has been producing a lot of shows designed to push the envelope of immoral sexuality. #NetFlix #Movies #Apostasy 1 Corinthians 6:18 Mark 7:20-23 Coupon Code (Good Sept 2020): IANA https://www.ourwalkinchrist.com/shop
Aug 25, 2020
Reverence for the Word | Daily Walk 170
Our culture is really missing reverence. Things like comedy and parody have their place, but often times we fail to have reverence for God and His Word. Recently, Lifeway gave us a perfect example of how not to handle the Word. In the Gen Z Bible Devo, they tried to make the Bible relevant, but it failed. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 Isaiah 6:2
Aug 18, 2020
Signs of False Worship | Daily Walk 169
Today on our Daily Walk, we will talk about people who go to a sound church, but fail to let it impact their life. This is a fundamental part of false worship: listening in, but auditing the faith, not letting it transform you. Let this message from Ezekiel touch your heart. Ezekiel 33:30-33 James 1:23-24 2 Timothy 4:3-4
Aug 11, 2020
The Christian Persecution | Daily Walk 168
The Christian Persecution in America is coming. On this daily walk, I talk about some of the things that have been going on in recent weeks that mean fewer religious freedoms for us as Christians. Will you take a stand, or will you be compliant? Acts 4:13-22
Aug 4, 2020
MacArthur Opens Church | Daily Walk 167
After the governor of California shut down churches "indefinitely", John MacArthur opened Grace Community Church and issued a statement about his decision. We will discuss that today. https://www.gracechurch.org/news/posts/1988
Jul 28, 2020
Be a Berean | Daily Walk 166
When we hear the pastor speak, are we accepting everything as Gospel truth or are we being a good Christian and examining the Scripture to see if what the pastor is saying is true? Any good pastor will encourage the congregation to test the Scriptures to see if their preaching is sound. This discussion is an exhortation to do just that. Acts 17:10-11 1 Thessalonians 5:21-22 Art of Shallow Neighboring: https://www.ourwalkinchrist.com/books/art-of-shallow-neighboring
Jul 21, 2020
Better Online or In Person? | Daily Walk 165
Churches are being forced online, but if we had a choice, are we better off meeting online or better off meeting in person? I discuss my thoughts as I experience a church that is open, but a ministry that is not. Hebrews 10:19-25 James 5:13-18
Jul 14, 2020
Kanye West: President or Publicity | Daily Walk 164
Today we will talk about Kanye West's bid for president. Is he really serious? More importantly, is he really a Christian? Today we will analyze this walk in Christ and his proposal for president. 1 Timothy 3:6 Hosea 6:6 Romans 13:4
Jul 7, 2020
Seek the Lord Now | Daily Walk 163
Seek the Lord TRULY now. Dedicate yourself to God and live like it to be a Gospel testimony to others around you. Do not be like the Israelites who did what they wanted and then ran to God when the troubles came. -Hosea 6:1-3 -Hosea 6:4-6 -Isaiah 55:6 -Hebrews 2:2-3
Jun 30, 2020
Sin, Self Esteem, and Repentence | Daily Walk 162
Our world is obsessed with self esteem, but that is contrary to the start of salvation: repentance. We have to embrace sin in our life and call it what it is before we see the need for Christ. Once we see our need for Christ, we can accept His sacrifice. Vanishing Conscience: https://amzn.to/2BeLe5n -2 Corinthians 7:8-11 -Ezekiel 18:30-32
Jun 23, 2020
Biblical Mob Rush | Daily Walk 161
As peaceful protests turn into riots in many large cities, we are reminded of the Jesus found Himself at the heart of two mobs. Let's examine mob behavior and what we can do about it. -Matthew 21:8-11 -Matthew 27:19-23
Jun 16, 2020
BLM, Ancestry, and Worship | Daily Walk 160
As BLM becomes more vocal, we need to stand against racism, but without supporting the movement itself, which stands for a lot of things against scripture. Today, we talk about what we should and should not support in the current environment directly from the Scripture. Article: /blog/thoughts-on-the-culture/sour-grapes-and-sin -Ezekiel 18:1-9
Jun 9, 2020
Call No Man Father | Daily Walk 159
In the Catholic faith, a priest is called, "Father", but the Bible says not to call anyone on earth your father. What is this verse really saying? Today we will examine this section of Scripture. -Matthew 23:1-12 -1 Timothy 5:1
Jun 2, 2020
The Truth About Repentance | Daily Walk 158
Repentance is an important part of the Gospel. This is an element that is often missing in our Gospel messages today. Today we will look at what repentance means. Have you repented and turned to Christ alone for your salvation? -2 Corinthians 7:10 -James 4:4 -Ephesians 2:10
May 26, 2020
When are You a Christian? | Daily Walk 157
A long time ago, a movement called Easy-Believism ravaged the church, but today, it is sadly just assumed. This had led to many people being deceived that they are saved when their life shows no evidence of conversion. So what does it mean to be saved? Today we will talk about that. -Psalm 42:1
May 19, 2020
Are Bible Tracts Good? | Daily Walk 156
Some people love to hand out Bible tracts while others do not like them. In this presentation, we talk about the pros and cons, the mistakes, and the baggage around tracts in general and the chick tracts specifically.
May 12, 2020
Is KJV the Best English Translation? | Daily Walk 155
Some people suggest that the King James Version is the only correct Bible translation we have, even suggesting that it is heresy to read other versions. But is that true? On this video, we answer the question that was submitted to the website.
May 5, 2020
Do You Have a Crush on Jesus? | Daily Walk 154
A lot of modern churches talk a lot of 'Loving Jesus', but the messages they teach do not generally align with the teachings found in the Bible. So they all say they love Jesus, but is it love? Or is it just a crush? What is the difference? -Matthew 7:21-23 -Matthew 7:24-27 Adventures in Odyssey Lost Episodes: https://amzn.to/2SF953A Testing and Temptations: https://amzn.to/2stdglm
Apr 28, 2020
Meekness vs Milquetoast | Daily Walk 153
The meek shall inherit the earth, but sadly, many Christians have seen out role as more milquetoast. We need to understand our power as Christians, but do not unleash that, being reserved instead. Today we will talk a little about this balance. -Matthew 5:5 -Titus 1:9
Apr 21, 2020
Whom Do You Follow? | Daily Walk 152
Who do you really follow? King Joash only followed God while his leader was alive, did he make it to heaven? Once Jehoiada died, Joash walked away from God. Do we really follow Christ like we say we do? These are my thoughts. -2 Chronicles 24:1-2 -2 Chronicles 24:15-16 -2 Chronicles 24:17-19
Apr 14, 2020
A New Online Gospel | Daily Walk 151
This video explains a trend I have seen in online preachers as I have watched a few more people preaching their services on the Internet. While the possibilities are endless for a spectrum of teaching, some of the more exciting Internet preachers are smelting the Word Faith Gospels with the Church Growth Model to produce exciting sermons devoid of truth.
Apr 7, 2020
Benefiting from Isolation | Daily Walk 150
In our current isolated world, I want to encourage everyone to use some of the extra tiem we have focusing on God. Do not use this as a vacation to play video games and binge-watch television shows. Spend some time learning from the Bible, in prayer, and most importantly, spend time teaching your kids the things of God. #BibleStudy #Prayer #DrawNearToGod -Deuteronomy 6:4-9 -Psalm 119
Mar 31, 2020
The Error of the Social Gospel | Daily Walk 149
The Social Gospel is taking over many modern churches who start to downplay the importance of doctrine. This aboration comes from an overcorrection of the error of spending too much emphasis on theology. A balanced life in Christ teaches a true Gospel, empowerd by doctrine, leading to Christian service. #SocialGospel #Theology #GoodWorks -Acts 4:8-12 -Ephesians 2:1-10
Mar 23, 2020
When Grace Goes Too Far | Daily Walk 148
Hypergrace has been starting to gain some ground as many people are focusing too much on grace and focusing less on accountability and sanctification. While God calls us how we were, He has never desired us to stay in our old, sinful state. We are to move on, using Grace as a safety net, not as a lifestyle. #Grace #Hypergrace #Sanctification
Mar 16, 2020
A Christian Response to Pandemics | Daily Walk 147
The whole world is in a panic over the CoronaVirus, but as Christians, we need to remain calm and help our neighbors. We need to take precautions, but at the same time, we need to focus on Paul’s last statement to Timothy: To live is Christ and to die is gain. Be prepared, and help your neighbors! #Christian #Pandemic #Preparation -Matthew 6 -Matthew 24 -Titus 2
Mar 9, 2020
What Calvinism Is Not | Daily Walk 146
Calvinism is a very misunderstood theological system that most of the opponents of the view do not understand it. This video addresses the most common misunderstandings. We forget that Calvinism was defined to address a heresy cropping up in the church. #Calvinism #Predestination #Theology -Romans 10 -James 5
Mar 2, 2020
Science and Faith | Daily Walk 145
We live in a post modern age, and that means logic is not very effective in winning people to Christ, so why are so many people trying to use scientific methods to demonstrate the existence of God? Paul spoke to this very issue in 1 Corinthians when he declared that he desired to show nothing among them except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. How does this message impact us today? #Science #PostModernism #CrossOfChrist
Feb 24, 2020
Are People Born Gay? | Daily Walk 144
Our present Christian culture is being assaulted by many people who are claiming that homosexuals are born gay, and that means they can embrace that lifestyle. On the other hand, there are many churches fighting back saying people cannot be born gay. What is the real answer? I have a point from the book of Matthew. #BornGay #AffirmingChurch #Sin -Matthew
Feb 17, 2020
Shaped by the Ways of the World | Daily Walk 143
Today we want to talk about having a mission and following the Holy Spirit even when the world seems to suggest we should be doing something else. Sometimes a church or a book might tell us something that is contrary to what the Spirit has given us. Do not let that distract you. In short, do not let the ways of the world distract you from what God has given you to do. #WayOfTheWorld #Proverbs #DailyWalk Proverbs 3:5 Ephesians 2:10
Feb 10, 2020
Embrace the Five Solas | Daily Walk 142
We often talk of reformation, and in order to achieve that goal, we need to understand the solas that started the first reformation. When we understand the truth behind where the reformation occured, reformation will occur on its own. Are you ready to embrace the Five Solas? #FiveSolas #Reformation #Protestants -Sola Scriptura -Sola Fide -Sola Gratia -Sola Christus -Sola Deo Gloria
Feb 3, 2020
Choose to Follow God | Daily Walk 141
Isaiah gives us a message of blessing for choosing to follow God. We will learn why, even though we are Christians, we still need to actively choose to follow God’s laws. God gives us blessings and rewards and peace when we seek His ways. #Isaiah #Blessings #Christians -Isaiah -Deauteronomy -Matthew
Jan 27, 2020
Pride and Judgement | Daily Walk 140
Our culture has become prideful. We think all things will keep going as they always have; we think we are too big, too powerful to fall. But God has other ideas. Are we standing on the brink of #judgment? Today we will discuss a message delivered by #Isaiah. #ErwinLutzer -Isaiah Is God on America’s Side: https://amzn.to/2O6QevT https://www.moodymedia.org/sermons/god-americas-side/ The Church in Babylon: https://amzn.to/36DC3Fe https://www.moodymedia.org/sermons/church-babylon/

Coming To Your Senses | Daily Walk 139
This video focuses on the lost son who ‘comes to his senses’ and recognizes that he is suffering the consequences of sin. My encouragement today is do not radically desroy your body on a whim because of social narratives. Take some time to think through your decisions. #JamesShupe #Parables #ProdicalSon -Luke15
Jan 13, 2020
The Burning Brnahces | Daily Walk 138
Today we will look at the two difficult seeds in the Parable of the Sower and ask if they are really saved? What does the rest of the Bible have to say? #Parables #Sower #Salvation -Matthew 13 -Luke 3 -John 15
Jan 6, 2020
The Basis for Discernment | Daily Walk 137
When people come to Christ, the first piece of advice often given to them is to find a ‘Good, Bible-believing Church.’ But how does one find such a church without knowledge of what the Bible teaches? In this video, I will talk about how we learn to determine what a good church is, and what the marks are that we are actually saved. #Discernment #Cults #Salvation
Dec 30, 2019
The Gospel Requires Obedience | Daily Walk 136
There is an idea in the world that we can live our own way and still be a Christian. The Bible is very clear, and we will learn from Jesus today from Luke 14, that we cannot call ourselves Christian if we are not willing to do the things Christ calls us to do. You cannot hold onto Christ and the world at the same time. Which do you pick? -Luke 14 -Matthew 7 -1 Corinthians 9
Dec 23, 2019
Was Jesus Born in December | Daily Walk 135
Many #Christians believe Jesus was born in #December, of course, that is His birthday! But was it really? Today we go through some of the information presented in Happy Hellidays describing why Jesus was likely not born in December. #Christmas Happy Hellidays https://amzn.to/2WupAhZ
Dec 16, 2019
Morality is Not the Majority | Daily Walk 134
Polls are becoming more popular in the Christian world and as more polls come out, some people want to use them to justify changing our beliefs to what the majority believes, but a poll cannot tell us truth, they only tell us where we are. This discussion looks at where morality really comes from. #Morality #Polls #Truth -Matthew 7 I AM not amused https://amzn.to/2TlbeiY https://tlm.li/audiana https://www.kobo.com/us/en/audiobook/i-am-not-amused-1

What Is Discipleship | Daily Walk 133
In this Daily Walk we will at what #discipleship is and why it is important for our #Christian life. We will discuss what it is, what it is not, and why the Western church is not very good at it. #BibleStudy -Matthew 28
Dec 2, 2019
Do You Have Fellowhip | Daily Walk 132
Fellowship is important to our Christian walk in that we can help each other in our struggles, but also our Christian doctrine. In this video we talk about the importance of fellowship and where to get it. #Fellowship #Doctrine #Church – Acts – Hebrews Hezekiah’s Prayer: https://amzn.to/2rkmovd https://www.kobo.com/us/en/audiobook/hezekiah-s-prayer-1
Nov 25, 2019
Understanding the Opposion | Daily Walk 131
In order to take a solid theological stance on any matter, we must understand the opposing views. For Christians, it is deeply important that we understand what the Bible teaches by learning the various opinions, even to the point of being able to defend them. Failure to learn the opposition will show us to not be able to even defend our own viewpoint correctly. #Theology #Opposition #Discernment
Nov 18, 2019
The Planet Will End in Fire | Daily Walk 130
There has been a resurgence in the false viewpoint that our task as people is to improve the planet, either for the betterment of our society, or to help usher in the return of Christ. This view has seen a resurgence because of the modern day focus on Climate Change. The reality according to Scripture is that the world will end in fire, and it will be God’s doing. While we need to do our best as stewards of the earth’s resources, the resources are to be used to expand the Kingdom of God to save souls before the end. #ClimateChange #ReturnOfChrist #EndTimes – 2 Peter
Nov 11, 2019
What Is Truth? | Daily Walk 129
When #Jesus was on trial before Pontus Pilate, He was asked the question we all ask at some poitn in time: What is #Truth? This Daily Walk looks at #postmodernism and anti-truth in the modern era and how that aligns with the Scriptures. -John
Nov 4, 2019
The Cause of Shallow Christianity | Daily Walk 128
What is the reason for the rapid decline in #Christian maturity in our churches? Today I talk about what I think is causing such a trend, mostly boiling down to us giving away our #responsibility to learn the #Bible to other people instead of being dedicated to such dedication ourselves. -2 Timothy -Romans Books: The Wisdom of Crowds: https://amzn.to/2WKamXC The Vision of the Annointed: https://amzn.to/33jjtkC

We Are Not To Strive For Grace | Daily Walk 127
In our modern church we are focusing too much on grace. Grace is a wonderful and powerful thing in the Christian life, but it is what we give our children when they mess up. We should be striving to follow God with all our heart causing less sin in our life as we mature in Christ. Less sin means less grace over time, which is a good thing! #Grace #HyperGrace #Romans – Romans

How to Obtain World Peace | Daily Walk 126
People talk about wanting to obtain world peace, but they do not want to accept the one thing that causes world peace: The Knowledge of the Lord. From Isaiah, we find the future of life when the whole world knows God. #WorldPeace #Isaiah #KnowledgeOfGod -Isaiah

Rejecting the Old Ways | Daily Walk 125
Some people today believe the progressive way of life is better than following the ramblings of an old book written thousands of years ago, but that is simply not true. Today we tell you why from the book of Jeremiah. #Bible #Jeremiah #Christianity – Jeremiah – Romans

Confessing Our Sins to Plants? | Daily Walk 124
Union Seminary in New York City recently brought plants into the classroom to have the seminary students confess their sins to them in the name of climate change. This is a very clear example of what the Apostle Paul said we do, and the consequences are terrible. Listen in on what happened on what we can do about it. #UnionSeminary #Revelation #Confession – Romans 1 – Hebrews 3 – Hebrews 10 – Jeremiah 31

When God Abandons Us | Daily Walk 123
When we turn away from God, we risk being abandoned to our sin, and that is never a good thing. The Bible gives us Old and New Testament examples of the consequences of following our sin instead of following God. This video explains. #Gospel #Abandonment #Sin – Romans – Isaiah

Am I The Last Christian | Daily Walk 122
Sometimes we feel all alone in this world, and that is one of Satan’s tricks he plays on us. Today we look at a story about Elijah about when he thought he was all alone until God spoke to him. – 1 Kings #Elijah #ChurchGrowth #TrueFaith

Who Will Throw the First Stone | Daily Walk 121
It is often asked ‘How God can let this happen’ during tragic events. The answer is quite simple: He can, but He has given us over to our sins because we have rejected Him! We cannot stop ourselves from sinning even in small ways, so how can we expect the world to lay down its sin and follow God? – John 8:1-11 – Romans 1:24 #EvilInTheWorld #Tragedy #God

What Is your Foundation | Daily Walk 119
The Parable about the two men who build a house is talking about two people who both appear to be highly religous and saved. Only the man who builds on the Rock is saved. Building on the rock means we are living the true Gospel as a pattern in our life. What does that mean? Today we discuss that. #Parables #SolidFoundation #Repentance -Matthew 7 -James 1
Aug 27, 2019
The Unholy Trinity | Daily Walk 118
Just as God has a plan for his redeemed, Satan also has one for the world. Since Satan duplicates what God does, it is not surprising he has an unholy trinity, each person mimicking what God does in truth. This unholy trinity is rarely discussed, but will become known in the last days. #Trinity #UnholyTrinity #Antichrist -Revelation 13 -Matthew 24:15-28

This is Why Our World is Violent | Daily Walk 117

Aug 13, 2019
The Purpose of Spiritual Gifts | Daily Walk 116
Today we will look at the purpose of spiritual gifts. Some would say they are to help build the local church, but I do not hold to that idea, because our first calling is to the Church Universal and our gifts are given to us to work in the ministry we are given by God. #Gifts #Church #Ministry – Ephesians 4:11-12 – Romans – Matthew – 1 Peter
Aug 6, 2019
A Lamp On A Hill | Daily Walk 115
The Parable of the Lamp appears four times in three Gospels and three of the tellings are subtly different. Today we look at Matthew 5 and what the city on the hill and the lamp on the Lampstand mean. #Parables #Lamp #Integrity – Matthew 5:14-16 – 1 Peter 2:12 – Matthew 6:1-3
Jul 30, 2019
Doctrine or Love? | Daily Walk 114
There is an argument in Christianity about what is more important: Doctrine Love The reality is that both are equally important and we must have both in the Christian life. Here, we talk about this concept from the Book of Titus #Titus #Doctrine #Love
Jul 23, 2019
Natural and Special Revelation | Daily Walk 113
The world around us shows that God is real and that He created the world. But that Natural Revelation does not show us the kind of God He is. Today we look at Natural and Special Revelation. #NaturalRevelation #SpecialRevelation #Creation
Jul 16, 2019
Are You Denying the Faith? | Daily Walk 112
The old heresy of Easy Believism spawned from a combination of ‘simple steps’ to salvation and a desire to accept people as saved even though they did not live a life consistent with Christ. The same thing is happening now as many denominations are turning away from the true Gospel because they do not want to accept that family and friends are not saved. We must stand firm in the word and love all people even if they are not saved, but preach the Gospel which is of repentance. #SocialJustice #Gospel #Salvation

What Made Hezekiah a Good King? | Daily Walk 111

Jun 25, 2019
What Is the Church | Daily Walk 109
The Bible declares that the gates of Hades will not prevail against the church. But what is the church? I content it is more than a building where crosses hang on the wall as many modern churches are no longer preaching the Word of God, nor do many of them seem to even believe the Word of God. This is just some of my collected thoughts on this topic. #Church #TaresAmongWheat #Christian
Jun 18, 2019
The Gospel and Free Speech | Daily Walk 108
Our world is becoming increasingly hostile to ideas that are not in alignment with progressive thought, and that places the Gospel on the chopping block. We are commanded to go out into the world and preach the Gospel, and it is my contention that we need to stand for free speech so we have the freedom to preach, even if that means other unpopular ideas might also be allowed into the public square. As long as words are used and not violence, we have nothing to fear, particularly us who have the truth! #Gospel #FreeSpeech #Dissenter
Jun 11, 2019
Live Like it is the End Times | Daily Walk 107
We are living in the end days! We need to start living like it. As Christians in the past have lived like they were in the last days, the Spirit of God moved more than we see Him moving today. When we stop living for our desires and pleasures we find ourselves instead living for Christ. Let us remember Christ and His parables and start knowing He will soon return! #TheEndTimes #ReturnOfJesus #Christianity
Jun 4, 2019
Radical Integrity | Daily Walk 106
Integrity is very important in the life of a Christian, in fact, it is a core staple of the faith. We are called to follow Christ whatever it costs us, and the hypocrisy of failing to do that is a key reason young people are leaving the church. #Christianity #Integrity #Hypocrisy

Clearly Identify Sin In Your Life | Daily Walk 105
Understanding our sin is the first step to salvation; without understanding our desperate need to be saved we gloss over what it means to lay our wrongs at the foot of the cross. This Daily Walk calls us out to clearly spot real and identifiable sin in our life as the first point to accepting our savior.

Beware Church Growth Pastors | Daily Walk 104
As time goes by, more celebrity pastors of church growth-philosophy churches are falling into scandals. Hybells, Driscol, and today several insiders of Harvest Bible Chapel reported that James MacDonald sought to arrange murders. All this is to bring to light that our sin will find us out, and we need to focus on the truth of God rather than being part of a celebrity church. #JamesMacDonald #ChurchGrowth #Celebrity Pastor Julie Roys Article: https://julieroys.com/chicago-radio-host-former-bodyguard-say-james-macdonald-asked-arrange-murders/

Passion as a Christian | Daily Walk 103

Is God Good? | Daily Walk 96
This edition of Daily Walk asks whether God is good. We start with looking briefly at the book How Can Anyone Say God is Good by Gary Miller.

Bad Theology in the Second Generation | Daily Walk 95

Contemplation in a Chaotic World | Daily Walk 87

The American Dream | Daily Walk 25
This walk was inspired by a recent sermon I heard focusing on missions. A lot of people misunderstand what missions are, and even worse we focus more on our own pleasures more than God. On this daily walk I discuss the problem with pursuing the American Dream rather than figuring out how to better serve Christ.
Jun 25, 2018
It May Not Go Well For You | Daily Walk 24
On this walk I discuss the fallacy that when we come to Christ, everything will go well for us on earth. That is not the case, and Jesus even reminds us in John 15:20 that we will be persecuted. We are commanded to pick up our cross and follow Him in Matthew 16:24. This does not mean our life will be terrible if we come to know Jesus, but that we will have everlasting Joy, especially in eternity.

On this walk I discuss what Jesus says about worry. The NASB Bible calls this section of scripture The Cure for Anxiety. Our culture tries to make us anxious. They want us anxious to sell us things to make us feel better. They make us anxious to stay fixed to the news for ratings, but Jesus tells us the cure: Jesus Cure for Anxiety: Matthew 6:25-34 Follow along and stop worrying!

Angels and Redemption | Daily Walk 22
On this Daily Walk I have a look at a topic I have seen appear in a few movies and television shows: Angels and redemption. Biblically, angels do not have a means of redemption, but why does that matter in the scope of a story line? I will discuss the ramifications of this trend on this walk.

Progressivism and Christianity | Daily Walk 21
On this Daily Walk I discuss progressive thought and how our western culture is radically moving along without Christian thought and input. Listen in on the scientific breakthrough that lead me to this talk. Here is the article I read about DNA data storage: http://www.seattletimes.com/business/microsoft/uw-microsoft-claim-big-breakthrough-with-data-storage-using-dna/

Parable of the Laborers | Daily Walk 20
During this daily walk I discuss the Parable of the Laborers and talk about our modern day application. The parable is found in Matthew 20:1-16

Consider Your Influences | Daily Walk 19
During this walk, I will discuss the importance of considering our influences in life. Since our heart is frequently a reflection of our life, we should be careful about what we allow in our head through our consumption of media, but we should also not be limiting ourselves to merely Christianized forms of entertainment.

Shallow Evangelism | Daily Walk 18
Today’s Daily Walk takes us down a path of Shallow Evangelism. The American Church is very wide, but very shallow. We are very good at getting a lot of people to pray for Jesus, but our follow-through is to be desired. We should rather focus on discipleship. I give some thoughts to discipleship at the end of this walk.

The Sacred, Secular Split | Daily Walk 17
We are too focused on living in Christian bubbles and we need to pop them to let the Christians out in the world. On this Daily Walk, I talk about Lecrae, the HipHop artist and his new book, Unashamed. This split is important for us to continue on our walk in Christ.

Not of This World | Daily Walk 16
Once again, the audio quality is not what I wanted, but the content was just too good not to share and I did not want to risk redoing because I liked the message. On this daily walk I discuss the role of the Christian in the culture. We are to impress our love on the world, but not always our laws. God is strong enough to change the hearts of the people and if we are too busy trying to change the laws of the nation without changing the souls of the nation, we are setting ourselves up for failure. Change the hearts and the nation will line itself up. Remember that the Gospel spread in the Roman cities that were not ‘Christian’ nations.

Electronic Bibles | Daily Walk 15
–The audio quality is not what I want, but the content was worth sharing– On this daily walk, I talk about the use of electronic bibles in the form of cell phones, tablets, and projection screens. Some debate has ensued over the years regarding the effectiveness of digital bibles. Herein are my comments.

Tares Among Wheat | Daily Walk 14
How do we respond to people not living by God’s commands? On this Daily Walk I discuss what Jesus had to say about the topic from the parable of the Tares among Wheat.

The Parable of the Sower | Daily Walk 13
Jesus tells his disciples exactly what the parable of the sower means. In Matthew 13, Christ tells us that seeds fall in four locations: The path, the shallow soil, the weeds, and the fertile ground. On this daily walk, I give some thoughts on these four soils as they relate to our modern culture.

Purpose of the Parables | Daily Walk 12
Jesus did not speak in parables to easily teach the principles of the Kingdom of Heaven. I know that is the regular teaching in Sunday school, especially kids classes. Jesus gave a much deeper reason to His disciples when they asked directly: Why do you speak in parables? On this daily walk, I tell you what Jesus told them.

Pagans Will be Pagans | Daily Walk 11
Believers of the world, we need to stop trying to get non-believers to follow the rules and guidelines of our God. We should love the people of the world, live like citizens of heaven, and preach the Gospel. Let’s let God work it out. But if we are saved, we should certainly start living like it. All this and more in today’s daily walk.

Bible Translations and Alphabet Soup | Daily Walk 10
There are over 115 English Bible translations. WHY!!!! In this video, I discuss my thoughts on the number of Bible translations that are available. I frequently am asked about what Bible I read and is x,y,or z a good translation. I seek to read a different translation every year, and I think that we have way too many translations. Here are my thoughts.

Living Like Jesus | Daily Walk 9
In this Daily Walk I discuss the importance of conforming our life to the Scriptures starting starting with our minds. Paul exhorts us to transform our hearts with the renewing of our mind. In the book of Ephesians he give us an outline of some core attitudes to adopt. The bottom line, if we confess that we are Christians, we ought to live like we truly are Christians.

Life in Corinth | Daily Walk 8
On this daily walk I discuss the Christian implications of the homosexual marriage debate and other sins that were commonplace in the culture when Christianity was spreading. We should not be as concerned about this right as many Christians declare, but rather, we should just keep on going with the preaching of the Gospel. I can’t force the pagans around me to accept the mandates of a God they do not believe in! Rather than tell others how they should live, as Christians, we should rather be concerned with spreading the Gospel!

Transformation in Christ | Daily Walk 7
Many times we hear how easy it is to come to Jesus, and indeed, the burden is easy as Jesus does declare. Our invitation is free, but it is not without cost. In this daily walk, I discuss the Rich Young Ruler, coming to Jesus, and the cost of following Jesus.

Scripture Memorization | Daily Walk 6
We all tell our kids at church in Sunday School and evening programs to memorize scripture, but as a general trend in America, it is another place that we as Christian adults are not leading by example. In this daily walk, I talk about my key points in Bible memory. A few books that I have read on the topic are: An Approach to Extended Scripture Memory by Andrew Davis Speed Memory Techniques by Armando Elle Scripture Memorization Made Easy by Leilani Charis There may be better ones, but these were free or low cost on the Kindle and it is better to just experiment with what works best for you and o it rather than reading all of the theory, but those are good places to get a start. With that…start hiding God’s Word in your heart so you may not sin against Him

Politics in the Church | Daily Walk 5
During today’s daily walk I wanted to discuss politics and faith. No matter if you like our president’s policies or not, we are called to pray. Pray for the government and the leaders. As we enter the election year and the politics are flying in the news, we need to focus on praying. Pray for the country, pray for the best leader to be elected to the country, and pray for the new president no matter if you wanted that person elected or not! The Bible tells us to obey our authorities as long as our authorities are not directly interfering with our commission to spread the Gospel. Pray and keep the two party American political system OUT of the church.

Bible Tracts Everywhere | Daily Walk 4
On today’s walk, I want to discuss a pet peeve I have…BIBLE TRACTS! I hate these things. Though I have encountered a few good ones, most of the tracts I have looked at (and that is many) are sloppy in their theology. They simply want to get a little prayer accomplished and then declare you saved! No matter the fact you have not repented, are not seeking to please God. If the prayer is done…you are SAVED! Lets recall some theology and stop leaving these things littered around town. Listen to my discussion on Bible Tracts

Theology is Important | Daily Walk 3
On this daily walk I am discussing why theology is important and then I give some practical steps to learn theology. Some great free resources can be found here: Grace to You – http://www.gty.org/ Ligonier Ministries – http://www.ligonier.org/ Desiring God – http://www.desiringgod.org/ Moody – http://staging.moodymedia.org/ Oneplace – http://www.oneplace.com/ Remember you should be studying all points of view, particularly in the controversial views. Ultimately, you should come to your own conclusion on theological matters.

The Importance of Scripture Reading | Daily Walk 2
The Bible is not as difficult a read as many books that we Americans like to stick our nose it, but simple reading can have deep impact on our daily life. We should be striving to reading the Bible quickly over the course of a year, but also to doing some in depth study in addition to that. In this daily walk I build an argument for why we should read the Bible every day and then I lay out my strategies for how I accomplish that task.

The Importance of Prayer | Daily Walk 1
Some of us are better at praying and others not so much. I am very academic so reading the Bible comes naturally to me, but when it comes to prayer, I often struggle. I make the effort and put in my time, but sometimes we misunderstand what we are trying to accomplish with our prayers. Do we seek to get things as if our Father is a cosmic vending machine? You know the prayer, “Give me this, give me that, give me this, give me that…time for bed!”
