As my readers know, I don’t always (or really ever) have kind words for preachers such as Joel Osteen and Joseph Prince (just to mention two). I also don’t have kind words for pseudo-Christian groups such as Catholicism, Mormonism, or those that are indulging in New Age practices. I often talk about the unbiblical teachings… Continue reading Is it Biblical: “Criticizing Pastors Might Bring the Wrath of God”
I was recommended the book Not a Fan by Kyle Idleman. It’s certainly a very popular book, especially among younger Christians. However, just because something is popular among Christians doesn’t mean that it is exactly Biblical. Look at prosperity preachers such as Joel Osteen, Joseph Prince, and others that make millions of dollars a year… Continue reading A Brief Review: Not a Fan by Kyle Idleman
More and more we see psychics, mediums, and even those who focus on ghosts. It’s all over the media. You can rarely flip through the channels and not see a reference to one of the above. It may be Long Island Medium, Ghost Hunters, A Haunting, or some other psychic or medium on a daily talk show… Continue reading Should Christians turn to psychics and mediums?
The Bible is clear that we should show Christ’s love to others. However, the Bible also has a fairly hefty view on the sinfulness of homosexuality. Recently in Springfield there has been a heavy push on forcing religious institutions to hire homosexuals. Homosexual or transgendered persons would be protected under nondiscrimination laws. Springfield, Missouri is… Continue reading Homosexuality forced upon Biblical Christians in Springfield, Missouri?

Biblical Fasting The Lenten season is focused on fasting. This is what the Lord says about fasting: “Whenever you fast, do not put on a… Continue reading Should Biblical Christians participate in Lent?

The Council of Trent (1545-1564) placed the Bible on its list of prohibited books, and forbade any person to read the Bible without a license from a Roman Catholic bishop or inquisitor. The Council added these words: “That if any one shall dare to read or keep in…
So, you’re a Christian and one that desires to be a Biblical Christian. So, what church should you go to? Which denomination holds the key to being the most “Biblical?” Baptist? Pentecostal? Methodist? Lutheran? Presbyterian? Charismatic? Non-denomination? Ok, so after picking one of those, which of the subgroups do you pick? Southern Baptist? Free Will Baptist? Fundamental… Continue reading What church should we go to?
As you can tell, this blog is no longer titled “The Musings of a 20-Something” and the url is no longer fantasticalmay. The blog is now titled “Seeking Biblical Faith.” The url has changed as well. I did this because I want this blog to be about seeking Biblical truth. I don’t want this blog… Continue reading A Mild Revamp of Sorts
“Do not judge so that you will not be judged.” (NASB) I’m fairly positive that most Christians have heard or seen this throw at Christians so that we won’t judge the lifestyle of a non-Christian (or often times a “lukewarm” or “name only” Christian). So, does this verse tell us that we, under no circumstances,… Continue reading Out of Context: Matthew 7:1
I’ve heard several sermons which mention the Song of Songs (also called the Song of Solomon). I’m sure many have. However, it never really covered the content because, well, let’s be honest, it can be quite embarrassing. Have you ever been listening to a sermon that says that the Song of Songs is about Christ’s relationship… Continue reading Biblical Context and Song of Songs (Solomon)
