Resurrection: Benefits for Believers

Author: Pastor Bill Henderson
Could it be possible that within the church today the resurrection of Jesus is comparatively undervalued? For example, for some, more emphasis seems to be placed on the rapture than the resurrection when one of these is not the focal point of the New Testament and the other is. Read More

The Diamond Doctrine: Atonement

Author: Pastor Bill Henderson
To understand the Bible’s teaching on atonement it may be helpful to consider a beautiful, big gemstone. One time on vacation I stood patiently in line to cast a gaze at Harry Winston’s famous Hope Diamond (weighing 45.52 carats) on display at the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.

The God-Man: Jesus Christ

Author: Pastor Bill Henderson
If Jesus is, in fact, God, how could he say, “the Father is greater than I” ? This is a very important textual question that has an ancient background in church history. It was this text of Scripture that was heavily used by Arius of Alexandria (ca. 250 – ca. 335 A.D.) to teach that while, by nature, Jesus was more than a man, he was less than God. Read More

Original Sin vs. Superabundant Grace

Author: Pastor Bill Henderson
"Original sin" is actually a tricky expression but with a centuries-old history. At first blush it appears pretty simple to understand but it is technical jargon specific to the field of theology. Personally, I think “original sin” is an expression worth preserving and explaining because the more accurately we think about human sin the more accurately we grasp the amazing grace of God in salvation.

Spiritual Warfare with Apollyon the Destroyer

Author: Pastor Bill Henderson
My Grandad used to say that too often we Christians are creatures of extremes. It’s one thing to be either decisive or indecisive with a restaurant menu, or either self-confident or insecure when trying on a new dress. But it’s quite another thing to be lazily disinterested or obsessively fanatical when it comes to biblical truth. And such is so when we tend to either underestimate or overestimate the doctrine of Satan. Read More

The God of Hope Behind the Answer We’d Rather Not Hear

Author: Pastor Bill Henderson
For every dramatic story of answered prayer, there seems to be no shortage of stories of unanswered prayer. Sometimes the sky above is like brass against which the arrows of our puny prayers ricochet back to earth. So Christians have sincerely asked, “Why is that?” First, it’s probably worth saying that while we may feel that our prayers have fallen on deaf ears, strictly speaking, there’s no such thing as unanswered prayer.

God is Near and Distant

Author: Pastor Bill Henderson
What do you make of the cosmos, the complex and orderly system we call the universe? At the most general level, how do you think about the nature of this universe in which we live? As Christians, we may take our theory of the universe for granted but like Rodin’s famous bronze sculpture of “The Thinker,” we might do well to deeply ponder how the biblical understanding remains distinct from other explanations.

God Is Simple

Author: Pastor Bill Henderson
God is a single and simple spiritual being. At first blush it may sound strange to our ears to hear that God is simple. But by simple I don’t mean that God is dimwitted or a little naïve about what makes us humans really tick. Nor do I mean that God is a breeze to understand. Read More

Popular Objections to the Bible as God's Word

Author: Pastor Bill Henderson
The Bible is God’s word – inspired, inerrant, authoritative, sufficient, clear, and necessary. This is what we evangelical Christians believe about the Bible because this is what the Bible teaches about itself. But we shouldn’t be surprised that when we talk this way about the Bible we may open ourselves up to misunderstanding or even misguided objections.

Union with Christ: The Underdog Doctrine (Part Two)

Author: Pastor Bill Henderson
It almost goes without saying that every area of expertise uses its own special terms of reference. Good mechanics know limited slip differentials. Good carpenters know scissor trusses. Good nurses know cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Good Teachers know Bloom’s taxonomy. And good theologians know the underdog doctrine of union with Christ. Read More

Union with Christ: The Underdog Doctrine (Part 1)

Author: Pastor Bill Henderson
I can't explain it but I’ve always had a thing for underdogs (feel free to psycho-analyze). Whether it be choice of friends, team to cheer for, or movie to watch (think Rudy or Rocky), if there’s an underdog I’m engaged. I feel the same about Bible doctrine for Christians. If I were to list the various aspects of the Bible’s teaching on God’s application of salvation Read More

New Birth: A Lesson from Lewis

Author: Pastor Bill Henderson
C.S. Lewis became a Christian in 1931. Best known for authoring The Chronicles of Narnia in the 1950’s, it was in 1932 that he became a Fellow of Magdalen College, Oxford where he served as a tutor in English Language and Literature for 29 years. Read More
