Jesus I Come

By Indelible Grace

From their web page:

Indelible Grace Music grew out of ministering to college students, primarily through Reformed University Fellowship (RUF). As these students began to taste more of the depth of the gospel and the richness of the hymn tradition, many began to join the music of their culture with the words of our forefathers (and mothers!), and a movement was born.

Our hope is to be a voice calling our generation back to something rich and solid and beyond the fluff and the trendy. We want to remind God’s people that thinking and worship are not mutually exclusive, and we want to invite the Church to appreciate her heritage without idolizing it. We want to open up a world of passion and truth and make it more that just an archaic curiosity for the religiously sentimental. We believe worship is formative, and that it does matter what we sing. Ultimately, we want to nurture a movement and hope this site will provide resources for this.

Soli Deo Gloria,

Rev. Kevin Twit
– Campus Minister, Reformed University Fellowship at Belmont University


This is NOT Preaching the Gospel Either!

OK class, watch the video and see if we can identity the mistakes this pastor makes.

Anything wrong with this sermon?

You might check out the following sermon as an example of what the pastor is supposed to be doing. This sermons is by Voddie Baucham at Grace Family Baptist Church out of Houston. He is preaching on the table of nations out of Genesis 10 and shows that there is only ONE human race, not multiple races as we are lead to believe because of humanistic evolution. I was really surprised at the discovery that racism is at the heart of evolution, with whites being the supreme ending of evolution and blacks on a lower scale. Baucham shows the falseness of this thinking.

What Christ Are They Coming To?

Over the past several years, I’ve had believers in my immediate family tell me that there are many people in our nation coming to know Christ. I’ve heard reports that there are more Christians now than at any time in history. I’ve been told that more believe in America today than any other time in the history of this country.

But if these things are so, what Christ are they coming to? It’s been my experience as a pastor over the past 15 years that there are far more “believers” who want nothing to do with the Christ and the cross of the bible than there are those who actually hunger for God’s word. I don’t see people coming in droves to be in Christ’s “presence,” or even being willing to suffer with Him in His sacrifice.

From the Department of “Let’s Just Love Jesus and Ignore Theology” Comes This…

Yes, Fred Luter, the new president of the Southern Baptist Convention, made an impassioned plea at the recent convention to quit arguing over theology and seek the lost, showing his hand and laziness.

“Because of our love for the Scripture we’ve had some differences of opinion, but the problem is that while we are arguing about these topics, lost men, women, boys, and girls are dying and going to hell every single day,” said Luter on the first night of the denomination’s 2013 annual meeting.

“While we are arguing about these topics and debating about these topics, America is going to hell every day,” he continued. “Time is running out. We do not have time for debate. We do not have time for arguing. The world needs to know that Jesus saves … for the sake of those who are lost.”

Read more here.

His comments are supposed to be the ultimate trump card in any argument. The problem is that it shows his hand. Luter doesn’t believe in God’s election, God’s sovereignty, God’s greater purpose of His glory. This shows us that Luter thinks he is the one that will be saving people. He is straight from the Charles G. Finney school of manipulation, which has done more to damage to the church than anything the government could do.

This is the same as the pastor I had a dialog who recently made the claim:

 I will readily admit, even after graduating from Dallas, that I am a theological novice in many arenas, including John Calvin and Calvinism.  I simply love Jesus, desire to be in His presence  and am trying to bring as many people as I can one step closer to Him.

There is no excuse for this kind of laziness in the pastorate. For one, the man is not being honest. He says he wants to bring them closer to Jesus, but how is he to do this if He is not willing to dive deeper in the word and grow in his Christology (a branch of theology that focuses on the person and work of Christ). What does he intend to do, give them fuzzy feelings so that they too have fuzzy feeling about Jesus? The Bible never calls us to such slop. (Calvinism is at the heart of the SBC’s arguing by the way.)

The real problem behind both pastor’s is that they fostering anti-intellectualism under the guise of loving Jesus. This really is part of Satan’s attack on the church. He doesn’t want us growing in our understanding but resting in our feelings.

The Bible stands against this false philosophy in several places. The first is found in 2 Corinthians 10:2-6 But I beg you that when I am present I may not be bold with that confidence by which I intend to be bold against some, who think of us as if we walked according to the flesh. For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

In their noble attempts to “love Jesus” and “win the lost,” the two men are fighting Satan’s battle for him, instead of bring every thought into captivity and being willing to give an answer when ready to do so. Paul doesn’t want us to play stupid, but study in order to present ourselves approved and to be able to take on every stronghold that exalts itself against the word of God. This means we have to think and use our brains. We are never to stop studying God’s word in order to take on the spiritual battle we face. We must constantly be refining our beliefs and arguments so as to be used by God.

If you want a better exposition of this thought here, listen to Simon Brace on the following mp3. He is using 2 Corinthians 10:6ff to really drive home the point that we must be ready to argue for the faith. He shows that we are to argue, defend, embrace it, understand it and use it to advance the kingdom. There is no room for anti-intellectualism or sloppy Jesus love in the body of Christ. To make those things out as somehow noble, is truly deceptive, which comes from the great deceiver.

Plus, Wintery Knight has some on it as well.

The point is that we are never to stop diving into the word. We always need to be growing in our understanding and, as the above passage shows us, make arguments for the faith, taking every thought captive. We are to be ready to fight for what the Scriptures say and defend the faith on every front.

Both pastors above, who seem to be so noble in their sloppy doctrine, are actually doing more damage than good. Hopefully, they will repent of such laziness.

Seven Marks of a False Teacher

I love Tim Challies post on the Seven Marks of a False Teacher. Every Christian should send the list to their pastor’s as a reminder that a pastor is not to be entertainer, but a shepherd.

Here are the first few points:

1False teachers are man pleasers
. What they teach is meant to please the ear more than profit the heart. They tickle the ears of their followers with flattery and all the while they treat holy things with wit and carelessness rather than reverence and awe. This contrasts sharply with a true teacher of the Word who knows that he is answerable to God and who is therefore far more eager to please God than men. As Paul would say, “But just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not to please man, but to please God who tests our hearts” (1 Thes. 2:4).

2False teachers save their harshest criticism for God’s most faithful servants. False teachers criticize those who teach the truth, and save their sharpest criticism for those who hold most steadfastly to what is true. We see this in many places in the Bible, such as when Korah and his friends rose up against Moses and Aaron (Num. 16:3) and when Paul’s ministry was threatened and undermined by those critics who said that while his words were strong, he himself was weak and unimportant (2 Cor. 10:10). We see it most notably in the vicious attacks of the religious authorities against Jesus. False teachers continue to rebuke and belittle God’s faithful servants today. Yet, as Augustine declared, “He that willingly takes from my good name, unwillingly adds to my reward.”

False teachers teach their own wisdom and vision. This was certainly true in the days of Jeremiah when God would say, “The prophets are prophesying lies in my name. I did not send them, nor did I command them or speak to them. They are prophesying to you a lying vision, worthless divination, and the deceit of their own minds” (Jer. 14:14). And today, too, false teachers teach the foolishness of mere men instead of teaching the deeper, richer wisdom of God. Paul knew, “the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths” (2 Tim. 4:3).

Golf That Matters — 46 on the Front Nine!

2013-03-13 18.30.34

I went to play 18 holes this morning on my last day off, before I move into permanent-days-off status, starting next Monday. I wanted to play just to get out of the house and to play!

What I didn’t expect was my best 9-holes of golf in a while. I started out with a par on the hole number one, a 526-yard par 5. I typically double bogey the hole (a 7 instead of a 5), but not today. When my fourth shot landed a few feet from the hole, I knew it would be a good HALF round of golf! I drained the putt and the celebration began.

I followed up with a double-bogey on number 2, which was a beautiful thing as well, given that it is the hardest hole on the course. Then I hit for par on number three and didn’t have worse than a double bogey on the rest of the front 9. In other words: NO TRIPLE BOGEYS! For me, that is a good nine holes of golf.

My front-nine score as a 46! That is less than my goal of 50! So I am quite pleased with the outcome.

However, for the back nine, I went back to my old ways. I ended up with “grace filled” 63, and completely broke down on holes 15, 16 and 17.

I was talking to my dad about it and told him that I couldn’t do anything on those holes, wondering what the problem was. He said, “That’s easy Son, you’re not a professional athlete.” Then it became all so clear as to why my game fell apart. Clarity was given, a new revelation had been made and I realized that my father was right. I’m not a professional athlete. Whew! Glad that is settled.

I still plan on taking more lessons when I get the chance to do so. Maybe I there is enough athlete in me to one day, break 100. I just fear that the number of days which that remain a possibility are dwindling.

By the way, my final score was still a respectable 109, which is two strokes worse than my best game ever.

Judge Not

A great explanation of the “judge not” passage that liberals and atheists love to twist out of context.

Tides and Turning

I envision a lost man standing before Jesus Christ at the final judgment, having a strong sense of the fate that awaits. He cries out, ‘Judge not Jesus! You said it yourself! I read it in red!’

I then imagine that Jesus goes on to explain to the man that he has misinterpreted Jesus’ words: ‘Did you not also read that you are to remove the log from your own eye so that you can see clearly to take the splinter out of your brother’s? I have no log in my eye. My eye is clear, and I see you as you are. I judge accordingly, and my judgment is true and right.’

In my imagination, Jesus continues, ‘Did you not read that I told my disciples not to cast pearls before the swine? Did I not mean that they had to be able to judge a swine when they…

Tree Ladder With Boy

Last week I went back to the mountains, Cloudcroft, NM, and Cloud Haven retreat center with my boys and took some pictures in the same place that I did earlier. I thought it would be neat to take one of Joey going up the ladder which was the subject of my shot entitled Tree Ladder. Here is my new addition with the boy. I’m calling it: Tree Ladder with Boy. You can see the original Tree Ladder below, and see what a difference a few weeks made since the tree sprouted leaves in my absence. Also, the lighting was quite different. But it makes for a good study.


Here is the original:


In Memory of Vince Flynn


One of my favorite authors died today, Vince Flynn. He wrote 17 books, 16 of which had the main character Mitch Rapp. The books were all page turners and joys to read. No, they were not very deep. But they were not meant to be. They were meant to be entertaining and they were. The above picture is from and here is some of what Rush had to say:

RUSH:  Hello, folks, and welcome to the Rush Limbaugh program here on the Excellence in Broadcasting Network.  Middle of the week, Wednesday.  It’s a thrill and a delight to have you with us.  It is also a day of really profound heartbreak for those of us who knew the author Vince Flynn, who passed away this morning at 1:50 a.m. Central time at a hospital in St. Paul, Minnesota.  Prostate cancer that was discovered too late.  I’m numb sitting here today in a state of shock about this.  But what I want to try to do in recounting the Vince Flynn that we all knew is to be as upbeat and optimistic as I can because he was.

I first became aware of Vince reading his novels.  His hero is Mitch Rapp.  Those of us who have read his novels should know something.  Mitch Rapp is Vince Flynn.  Vince Flynn was a real man, the real deal.  One of the bravest, most courageous guys that I have ever met.  And he was a guy.  He was a man’s man.  I remember picking up his first novel, couldn’t put it down.  I told you about it on the radio while I was in the process of reading it, when I’d finished it.  And within a couple of hours I received an e-mail from him.  He had gone to the trouble to try to find out how to reach me, and did, and sent me an e-mail thanking me profusely.  And basically starting out an e-mail relationship.

You can read the rest via this link.

It was through Rush Limbaugh that I learned of Vince Flynn. Every fall I would start looking for his new book and I would buy it as soon as I could.

Mitch Rapp was a fun character. Manly, strong, short-tempered, deadly with a 9-MM, taking out 5, 10, 15 terrorists at a time. You know, all the stuff that guys love to read. He had his scraps, bumps and bruises along the way, showing us his humanity and even showing kindness at times. But in the end, it wasn’t a terrorist who got Mitch Rapp. It was far more subtle: it was cancer.

As Rush points out, Mitch Rapp was Vince Flynn. Sadly, cancer took him this morning. He will be missed.


Top Five Things I WILL Miss About New Mexico


For those who follow my blog closely, you know that I will be moving back to Texas in a few weeks, leaving Roswell, NM, for what I like to jokingly call the promise land. Yes, Texas is promising in so many ways, but I don’t hope to go there when I did, as Tanya Tucker proclaimed back before her multiple face lifts.

So in thinking about my departure, I thought I would share with you the top five things I will miss about the great state of New Mexico, not necessarily in order of importance.

  1. Number one on the list is green chilis. Putting green chilis is so prominent in this state and their cuisine that even the national food chains have to adapt to this local tradition. You might find this odd, but once you acquire a taste for green chilis, it is quite addictive. Just a few of the foods that are vastly improved with green chilis are hamburgers, pizzas, eggs., all things New Mexican, etc. The only thing I have tried green chilis on that did not improve the dish was adding them to baked potatoes. For some reason the combination didn’t work. But on everything else… it is wonderful.
  2. The weather — yes, I know. This area gets its share of brown outs, where there is so much dust in the air, the sun is browned out in fine apocalyptic manner. And the temperature climbs to triple digits. But given the dryness of the climate, that leads to cooler nights and relief from the intense heat. Even when we are not in the summer months, the weather is nicer than in most places because of the dryness. Yes, your skin has to adjust. I felt like Rango after he was dumped into the desert and lost two layers of skin when I first arrived. But, after a few days of losing skin, the weather made up for it. It is amazing how little humidity makes a difference in all seasons. (Just a side note, Roswell does have a monsoon season. But it’s more of a joke than a reality.)
  3. The mountains. I love being able to see the mountains on most days. It makes my walks and golf much more scenic. This also includes the number of neat places to travel to while in New Mexico.
  4. The golf — yes, our municipal golf course is one of the finest golf clubs I have ever been accepted at, as a member. Yes, it is the only one as well. That is what makes it so wonderful. Not only is it affordable, it is challenging for my level of play.
  5. My church — the best congregation I’ve had in a while. I’m saddened by the fact that they cannot continue to pay me and I hope that they are able to bring in a tent-maker so the church will continue.

There you have it. Five reasons to visit Roswell, NM. And no, there is nothing about aliens in the least. The aliens would fall under the category of: Top Five Things I Don’t Like about New Mexico.

World’s Best Chocolate Chip Cookies!

ChocolateChip Cookies

Yes, the title has a bit of hyperbole in it. I’m not sure the cookies I ended up making on Friday night are the world’s best, or even my best. They are just the first batch I’ve made for my boys and I’m just grateful they turned out delicious.

What I learned is that the chocolate chip cookie recipe on the back of the Nestle Toll House chocolate chip bag is quite forgiving. I was trying to doctor it as prescribed by some: adding a bit more flour, and using more brown sugar than granulated sugar. But I came across a problem. While stirring the cookie dough, it was clumping and not getting smooth like I know the batter to be. So I … panicked and added another stick of butter and another egg. That helped with the consistency issue, and I could detect no great change in taste.

The boys loved the end product. So thank you for all the suggestions. I think the clumping problem came from old brown sugar. It was not gooey like new brown sugar. Note to self: use fresh ingredients.

Abandoned By God

Recently, in the deepest part of the night, while facing struggles personally, maritally and vocationally, I came to the point of feeling truly abandoned by God. The pain of loss, broken-heartedness and hopelessness truly gripped me and as I cried out to God I truly felt He had turned His back upon me. I felt completely rejected and dejected.

I’m not trying to be melodramatic, but life was so disrupted and out of sorts that I could see no real hope on this side of glory at all and truly felt as though God had turned His face away from me and left me to myself. I know that many will immediately react to such feelings and such a position, but I’m not the first believer in history to experience such a black moment in my life.

I was reminded of this as I was leading my Sunday school through the psalms and someone wanted me to go through Psalm 13. David starts with the words:

How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever?
How long will You hide Your face from me?

What comforting words they were to me. David was showing me that he too, struggled from feelings of abandonment. I was not the first, nor am I alone. A lot of people struggle from such feelings in their Christian walk, but because of some false pollyanna view of Christianity, we are not allowed to talk about it or admit to such dark feelings. So many, when hearing of such struggles, just want to pop off a quick verse about all things working together for good, and move on to the next happy moment. It is as if we are to ignore such dark feelings and break into a chorus of Monty Python’s Always Look on the Bright Side of Life. Please note the irony here. While singing of such a happy life, they are hanging from crosses and facing death.

How many have struggled with such feelings and have been afraid to admit it, thinking that by having such feelings we are sinning against God? The psalmist was not sinning against God when he uttered such words. He was merely recognizing God’s active movement in His life. He was being honest before God about what he felt and before the all-knowing and all-seeing God of the universe.

Having such feelings and being honest about them can be a blessing if we will let them be. How so? These feelings show us that something very vital is missing to in our lives. We are missing the presence of the LORD. David had to endure this absence for quite some time and finally that absence leads him to say, How long, O LORD?

I thing what struck me about this reality is that often times when we enter into sufferings, we are OK with those sufferings initially because we know through such sufferings God refines us and purifies us. However, it is the “How long…” that trips up most of us. Suffering for a week, we can endure. Doing without something for a month, we can handle. But the prolonged period of suffering, where there seems to be no end in sight, that is what dooms many of us.

We are like David asking, “How long, O Lord?”

And that is safe to ask. It shows us that the answer to our pain and suffering are only going to be found in the LORD.

But David doesn’t just ask, How long? He also asks: How long will you hide your face from me?

This question is a matter of blessing for it is a blessing for the LORD to turn His face toward us. This is why the Aaronic benediction is so important in the believer’s life:

Numbers 6:24-26 The LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace.  Amen

His face toward us is a blessing in the areas of our lives. For David, God had turned His face away and He knew the turning was the removal of blessing. For us, the blessing can be removed in our marriages, our jobs, our health, our country, etc.. There are many areas that God can choose to remove His blessing from us, so it is right for us to ask Him: How long will you hide your face from me?

Again, in asking the question, we are telling the LORD that we know all the blessings we have in every realm of life come ultimately from Him. We also recognize that those blessings have been removed for some time and that it is only through the LORD that the blessings will return.

So we petition the LORD in these dark moments, dark months, or dark years. If blessing is going to return, then it must come from the Father of lights.

How does David petition? Consider and hear me, O LORD my God; enlighten my eyes. He is asking for understanding. He is asking that God would help him understand why the blessing has been removed and why it has been so long since he had it.

The is the turning point for the psalmist. It is after that in which he proclaims: But I have trusted in Your mercy; my heart rejoices in Your salvation, I will sing to the LORD because He has dealt bountifully with me.

Not that his situation has changed, or that blessing has been restored. But David, like us, realizes that God has and is blessing us even in the moments when we feel abandoned. By understanding God’s providential hand, we know that ultimately He will never leave us nor forsake us, even though we may feel like He has. Because we feel like He has, tells us of His bountiful blessing on us.

Theology of the Heart and the Head

James Montgomery Boice write in his commentary on Psalm 139:

“Sometimes we speak of ‘doing theology’ today, and we often talk about the conflict between the head and the heart, saying that either one alone is inadequate. A theology that is all of the head is cold, dry, barren, and of little practical value. A theology that is all heart may be warm, comforting, and practical, but it will lack substance, and because it does it will be subject to every theological fad that comes along and will not hold up in hard times.”

Boice goes on to say that Psalm 139 is both head and heart, telling us of God’s nature, but in a very personal way. The Psalmist shows us how God is omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent in our own lives. No matter what we think, or where we go, He is there and He already knows. He knows more about us than we know about Him, or ourselves. He is not distant to us, but involved in the life of the believer and all this is very comforting to those of us who struggle with the trials of life. He is a loving God who cares deeply about us and we can trust in Him.

For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

139 O Lord, You have searched me and known me.
You know my sitting down and my rising up;
You understand my thought afar off.
You comprehend my path and my lying down,
And are acquainted with all my ways.
For there is not a word on my tongue,
But behold, O Lord, You know it altogether.
You have hedged me behind and before,
And laid Your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
It is high, I cannot attain it.

Where can I go from Your Spirit?
Or where can I flee from Your presence?
If I ascend into heaven, You are there;
If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.
If I take the wings of the morning,
And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
10 Even there Your hand shall lead me,
And Your right hand shall hold me.
11 If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall[a] on me,”
Even the night shall be light about me;
12 Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You,
But the night shines as the day;
The darkness and the light are both alike to You.

13 For You formed my inward parts;
You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;[b]
Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You,
When I was made in secret,
And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.

17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God!
How great is the sum of them!
18 If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand;
When I awake, I am still with You.

19 Oh, that You would slay the wicked, O God!
Depart from me, therefore, you bloodthirsty men.
20 For they speak against You wickedly;
Your enemies take Your name in vain.[c]
21 Do I not hate them, O Lord, who hate You?
And do I not loathe those who rise up against You?
22 I hate them with perfect hatred;
I count them my enemies.

23 Search me, O God, and know my heart;
Try me, and know my anxieties;
24 And see if there is any wicked way in me,
And lead me in the way everlasting.

Road Less Traveled


OK, I attempted some bad poetry in one of my earlier posts and to make up for it, here is Robert Frost poem, The Road Not Taken:

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Country Road


Some of the photography blogs also offer poetry with their photos so as to capture the full artistic experience. So, with that in mind, here is my poetry capturing the moment at 8,500 feet above sea level.

Beauty, trees, winds, gravel road…

Huffing and puffing, winded, really high, gasping for breath,

Camera, shoot, photo, drink cool water… luke warm water… from bottle, not pond, dysentery…

Dog, companion, Baily, labrador, guide, rescue mutt…

Hiking, too high, too long, wind in hair… seize the moment, seize the breath, seizure…

Hyperventilate… sit… rescue mutt, lick, face… wait patiently… leave behind… all alone… rescue mutt gone… descend slowly… more gravel, wind in hair blowing as if its all about me… only the wind doesn’t care… neither does the gravel, altitude, sun bathing and burning my white skin… I could die here and no one would notice… 

Rescue mutt returns… Come on slow poke! I’m 97 years old in dogs years and I’m in better shape than you!

Shut up rescue mutt…
