Does Everything Have to Be in Scripture?

Question: A friend of mine and I are in a discussion and he said, "Where in Scripture does it say everything has to be in Scripture?" Thoughts? Answer: This is one we better be careful with. You and I must have a common ground of understanding, or we can never determine truth. In fact, the denial of God’s existence has brought about the post-modern idea that there is no absolute truth. Since there is nothing upon which to base truth, in the post-modern mind, truth is solely based upon my experiences, [...]

Is Jesus King of All of Us?

Adapted from an answer given on Ask the Theologian, March 20, 2018. Question: Is Jesus the King for all of us or only for Israel?  --Bob, Minnesota Dr. White's Answer: First, let's take a look at the Scripture. At the beginning of Jesus' life, He was called King of the Jews. “Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.” (Matthew 2:2, KJV 1900) At the beginning of Jesus' ministry, He was called the King of Israel. “Nathanael answered [...]

Jerusalem, Israel’s Eternal Capital

Jerusalem, Israel’s Eternal Capital: Why President Trump Did the Right Thing Dr. Randy White On December 6, 2017, President Trump finally did what American Presidents and politicians have said they would do for decades. Both Democratic and Republican candidates have said they believe that Jerusalem is the eternal and undivided capital of Israel and the Jewish people. Until now, neither Democratic nor Republican Presidents have actually followed through with their campaign rhetoric. The U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv December 6 changed all of that. President Trump finally delivered. Just [...]

If You Believe in Privilege, Read This

Recently a video that is supposed to help privileged young people understand privilege has gone through social media. It is one of those videos that makes us say, "Oh my, so this is how life really is!" It is a worldview video, shaping the worldview of unsuspecting souls. It is, in my opinion, expressing an unbiblical worldview, and those who are watching should not adopt it's anti-Judeo-Christian message. Watch the video, then see below for why I disagree. Then share the truth! https://www.facebook.com/JungleVT/videos/1701654019976433/   Why I don’t agree with this video: [...]

Reflections from a Homeless Man’s Funeral

Dr. Randy White This week I officiated a funeral for a homeless man. It was a sociologists dream. Every "misfit" you could imagine was in the small crowd. Several of the men I had met previously just because I'm the pastor of the church on the "main drag," so I was somewhat familiar with a few of them. Others I had never seen. It was a very "free flowing" service, to say the least. Since homeless people like to talk, and since I didn't know the man, I let people share [...]

Why the Purpose Driven Cult Doesn’t Lead to Meaningful Lives

Dr. Randy White Somewhere in the past 40 years “Purpose” has become our god. I suppose Rick Warren revealed this god more than he invented it in his wildly successful book, The Purpose Driven Life. Somewhere, having Purpose (yes, I’m capitalizing it on purpose, since it has taken a god-like status) became a “must have” for western culture. Earlier this year, Facebook tycoon (and socialism advocate) Mark Zuckerberg spoke at the Harvard University commencement, saying, “Today I want to talk about purpose. But I’m not here to give you the standard [...]

The Value of Biblical Exposition in Evangelism

Dr. Randy White Once upon a time, churches met on Sunday mornings for “preaching services.” In these services, preachers preached the Word of God, often verse-by-verse. They were chiefly teachers of the Word, and the faithful attenders were the eager students. They carried their Bible, took notes, and (over time) became experts of the Scriptures. Then, a thing called the Church Growth Movement changed all that. The Sunday morning service changed from the “Preaching Service” to the “Worship Service,” which eventually changed to the “Worship Gathering,” and further changed to simply, [...]

The Sickness in Discernment Ministries

Dr. Randy White NOTE: This article has received criticism both here and here To both ministries, I reached out with a personal contact, giving my personal cell number, and expressing a desire to discuss the issues at hand. With Lighthouse Trails Research Project, I expressed my appreciation for their ministry (they are a good one) and offered to edit the article below, taking any suggestions they might have. The full response from Deborah Dombrowski was, "We don’t have anything to discuss with you about your article as we have already posted [...]
