This is a pretty cool music video from Sovereign Grace Music. I think someone sent it to me, but I can’t remember who did it, so feel free to take credit for it if it was you! And thanks!

By the way, today was my birthday, and it was a great one!

Why do people think they’re being healed?

Why are some people convinced that they’ve been healed by things like the Holy Ghost Hokey Pokey? Todd Friel talks with an Ex-Faith Healer about this topic. I think it’s very important to listen to in order to understand what the problem is with fake “healings”. I’m not saying that God can’t heal people, and I believe He does, but what are the proper means for a Christian to pursue healing? And are these “Holy Ghost Hokey Pokey” guys legitimately pursuing healing in a Biblical manner?

How can you get out of this? Read the Scriptures.

Deliver Us

Here’s a pretty cool song by some band that I had never heard of before. In fact, I really don’t know how I found this video, but I figure that good music is worth sharing, so here you go!

Shocking Youth Message

This is Christianity, Post-VHS’s 100th post! Yay, party! This one is a lot longer than most of the posts that are published here, but it’s worth watching. This one just happens to be a great sermon by Paul Washer at a youth conference that led to him not being invited back.

Should a Christian be concerned for his own good?

A great video from Desiring God: Don’t Waste Your Life.

“If there lurks in most modern minds the notion that to desire our own good and earnestly to hope for the enjoyment of it is a bad thing, I submit that this notion has crept in from Kant and the Stoics and is no part of the Christian faith. Indeed, if we consider the unblushing promises of reward and the staggering nature of the reward promised in the Gospels, it would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.”

– C.S. Lewis

Are you a church or are you a club?

Do you take care of each other?  Or do you just look after your own interests?

What are the Dangers Facing the Young and Reformed?

“Don’t ever buy into the lie that doctrine or theology kills or takes away zeal. True doctrine, true theology will increase zeal. But study is not enough.”

“And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.” (Ephesians 4:11-16)

Want Your Best Life Now? Stay away from Jesus!

So true.

Bullwhip Guy

Let’s call this part 2 of the critique of Rob Bell’s Bullhorn Guy video.  You’ve got to admit — this guy has a great point.

Thanks to Dave for posting this one in yesterday’s comments.

A Bullhorn Guy Response

I thought this was a great response to Rob Bell’s “Bullhorn” Nooma video by Todd Friel.
