Theology is the study of God. As Christians we ought not to study God for the sake of knowledge, but rather to know God better. Also, we learn about God so we can tell others about Him.

  • Contemplating Psalm 145

    Contemplating Psalm 145

    Great is the Lord What do we proclaim in this psalm? The bountiful and steadfast love of God. We speak this psalm because our cries for relief have gone unanswered. We stand by as our foes are lifted up and there is nothing we can do about it. There are those things we can’t fix,…

  • Christ Alone (Solus Christus)

    Christ Alone (Solus Christus)

    What does Christ alone mean, if Christ is not alone? Are the works of Christ sufficient for our salvation, or is there something else we must do?

    Faith has always felt like an indefinable quality to me. How can I understand it, if I can’t even define it? In recent years, I’ve realized my understanding of faith was confused by a world that doesn’t want me to have faith. In the vernacular, it’s a lie of the devil to say faith is…

  • The Five Solas: Introduction

    The Five Solas: Introduction

    For the longest time, I thought the Five Solas were officially documented somewhere in all the writings of the Reformers. Turns out, they’re not.

  • The Insidious Infiltration of Works on Grace

    The Insidious Infiltration of Works on Grace
