Alien Intrusion

Alien Intrusion

UFOs and Aliens are in the news quite a bit lately. A couple of years ago we had Gary Bates from Creation Ministries International speak at the Church. He wrote an incredible book “Alien Intrusion: Unmasking a deception.” CMI subsequently made it into a documentary. With scores of interviews from people who have had alien visitation, or been abducted there have a great deal of empirical data. This data gives the explanation for this phenomenon. This book and movie changed…

Questions

Questions

I’ve been praying through posting short videos here, addressing questions the Church or listeners might have. Obviously, this blog hosted on our own servers are free from any YouTube restrictions or censorship. So please, if you have any questions you’d like to have addressed, leave it in the comments and I’ll see if I can answer it from a scriptural viewpoint.

Fault Lines

Fault Lines

I highly recommend this book. Dr. Voddie Baucham does a fantastic job looking at CRT, racism and antiracism from a biblical worldview. Plenty of pastors and “evangelical leaders” misjudge him and avoid this book. It’s because they think he’s just parroting “white evangelical” talking points. They fail to understand his first major was Sociology and he’s been predicting what we’re seeing now for over 20 years. In addition, I think it’s important for anyone, including those who would avoid this…

There are no dumb questions!

There are no dumb questions!

How many of us remember being in school and the teacher would ask, “Any questions?” Of course, there was that guy that always shot his hand up and asked a million questions. We wanted to bean him with something, like our eraser. But then there were those other people that were way to shy to ask any questions for fear of asking “a dumb one” and they’d get ridiculed. The teacher knew that, so they’d then say “there are no…

Time to move it out!

Time to move it out!

San Diego used to have a Recruit Training Center and Naval Training Center. It’s where I went to boot camp. It’s no longer in existence today but I ran a lot there, marched a lot there and did a lot of pushups there too. We also did a lot of waiting. But one of the phrases that was embedded in my head was “Move it out!”. The waiting was over, it was time to get going. In the first 5…

Annual Spring Cleanup Day!

Annual Spring Cleanup Day!

Every spring, the Church takes a day to pull weeds, put down mulch, sweep, apply cold patch to our aging parking lot. Oh by the way, this summer the front parking lot will be brand new! But spring clean up affords the body an opportunity to develop deeper relationships with other like any other small group. Let’s face it, the 5 min meet & greet in service doesn’t cut it. This year so many of the new members showed up…

SOM 2021 Graduation

SOM 2021 Graduation

The School of Ministry (SOM) as the name implies is geared towards ministry. Yes the students get the whole Bible, yes they get principles in ministry and of course they get missions. But there’s a heavy emphasis on serving others, on being a servant. By having it at the Church, they get a lot of hands on practical experience. We let them visit other Calvary’s so they can see the variation within the model. This year was a miraculous year….

The compassion of Jesus

The compassion of Jesus

I don’t know if in this life we can fully appreciate or comprehend the graciousness of Jesus. Ephesians tell us in order for anyone to comprehend the expanse of His love, it doesn’t come naturally through our intellect. Paul prayed for the Ephesians that they would get a supernatural revelation from the Holy Spirit. Then and only then can we “comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height — to know the love…

When Fish Catch the Fisherman – A. W. Tozer

When Fish Catch the Fisherman – A. W. Tozer

History shows clearly enough that true spirituality has never at any time been the possession of the masses. In any given period since the fall of the human race, only a few persons ever discerned the right way or walked in God’s law. God’s truth has never been popular. Wherever Christianity becomes popular, it is not on its way to die–it has already died. Popular Judaism slew the prophets and crucified Christ. Popular Christianity killed the Reformers, jailed the Quakers…
