The words of the LORD are pure words. —Psalm 12:6a

One day this week as I was reading my Bible, a verse jumped out at me, leaping right off of the page and into the daily news: Romans 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. 2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the…

The Next Generation

In consequence of man’s condemnation to mortality, the people of the world are constantly dying, only to be replaced by new babes being born. This means that what the world will look like in a few years, in terms of the people who inhabit it—their ideas, goals, beliefs—will be determined by the children born today, not the adults perishing tomorrow. Though this is obvious, we sometimes lose sight of the implications it has for those who are seeking to change the future: to change the future, we have to affect the next generation.

Beseeching the Church

Our culture has entered a steady descent into depravity, which the church has not been able to stop.

And in this story of faith and struggle, we can find…

Psalms and Election 2016

While The Psalms Project is not a political organization, the book of Psalms is a political book: it reveals to those who will look the glories of the coming kingdom of Christ, and the historical backdrop for that revelation is filled with kingdoms, kings, and princes; justice, oppression, corruption, conspiracy, and intrigue. There is therefore much wisdom that we can gain from…

Announcing Operation USA

Today I’d like to announce the start of a new pilot program, Operation USA. This operation will focus specifically on reaching out to the church in the United States of America. Although The Psalms Project is intended to be a worldwide mission, it is natural for it to start with the US. One obvious reason is because that is where I live.…
