Why is it that one side’s opinion is celebrated while opposing views are, for all intents and purposes, gagged?

Pastor Bob takes a look at a new reality TV show called “Snake Salvation” and shares with us how to have a biblical balance.


Pastor Bob answers the question: “Should Christians use an online dating service?”

You might be surprised by the answer.


Apparently, quite a few Christians believe this current commotion in Syria could be a sign of the Biblical End Times.

Pastor Bob Coy shares from the Bible why they would think that and how you can prepare your heart.

It comes around over and over.

The homosexual/transgender conversation continues to encroach into areas of life where useful definitions and divisions are cast off for the sake of feelings. 

In creation, there are certainties connected to God’s plan. What happens when we certainties are replaced by ambiguity? Confusion!

Here are some thoughts from Pastor Bob Coy.

By now you’ve probably heard about the passing of Pastor Chuck Smith, founder of the Calvary Chapel Movement.  In the years that I was privileged enough to personally know him, I saw this man’s life used in a multitude of ways. 
 No single word could ever completely capture who Pastor Chuck was because he was so many things to so many people; a founder, a mentor, a scholar, an author, a pioneer, a leader, a teacher…the list goes on and on.  But if there’s one single word that best captures his heart I believe it would be “servant”.
 Pastor Chuck had a true passion to serve people…to be the servant of all. The more Calvary Chapel grew the deeper his commitment grew to serve others as Christ has served us.  His example as a servant is one of the things that God used to truly shape me.  And while I know that I’m not the servant he was, if there’s one thing in this life that I will always aspire to, it’s to follow his example in this regard.
 I’ve often thought, if Pastor Chuck’s life ran parallel to any character in the Bible, I think it would probably be Moses.  Both were used to begin fresh, dynamic, and unprecedented movements of God, and both faithfully walked in His will over many decades.  Interestingly, after a long life of doing many different things, the last description of Moses is that he was a “servant” (Deuteronomy 34:5).  The parallel couldn’t be more perfect. 
 Pastor Chuck’s passing has, and will, continue to leave its mark of sadness and sorrow … not for his sake but for those of us who will miss being in the presence of this truly remarkable man. But his passing has also left us something — an example of what a true servant of Jesus Christ looks like. And that’s an example that I know I, and so many others, will always look and aspire to. Thank you Pastor Chuck for showing me, and so many others, the way.
“If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.  For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you.” (John 13:14-15)
