You Are Not Cowardly

This is the video version of Pastor Bramwell’s February 2023 letter to St. Mark.

Revelation 21:7-8 tells us that it’s eternally detrimental to be cowardly. Thank the Lord, Christian, that you are not cowardly. You are courageous! When the world rages against you, you need not fear. God has given you the courage to stand before Him and confess your own individual sins. There is nothing cowardly about that.

Love or Hate?

The LGBTQ have branded themselves as loving while portraying Christians as haters. Is this true? Where is the love? Where is the hate? Scripture gives a clear answer. My actions as a Christian pastor and the actions of our opponents present compelling evidence, too.

Associating with Pagans | Cross Defense

Listen every Saturday at 9 AM (Pacific) at KFUO.org or on your favorite podcast app.

The truth of Scripture frees us to be bold like St. Matthew who had the audacity to include the magi in his gospel account. I counsel a Christian brother about using the words and actions of unbelievers as Gospel handles to bring honor to God. Can the worldly be taken captive by God in the confession of the faith?

Fear at Christmas?

This is the video version of Pastor Bramwell’s December 2022 letter to St. Mark.

If the divinity of Christ terrifies you, if His majesty crushes you, then think on His humanity. Consider that God Almighty came to you as an infant. He loves you. At His Nativity, we see that Jesus came to comfort and confirm the repentant conscience.

Ancient Apocalypse, The Flood, and the Migdal of Babel | Cross Defense

Listen every Saturday at 9 AM (Pacific) at KFUO.org or on your favorite podcast app.

Graham Hancock’s hit Netflix show, Ancient Apocalypse, has stirred up controversy. It goes against mainstream science and is all about the memory of a global flood preserved in mankind’s ancient structures. Did an advanced pre-flood civilization exist? Did they teach post-flood people groups their technology? What does this have to do with the pyramids and the stars? Excite your theological imaginations and let’s get into the book of Genesis for some answers.
