Website Under Construction

Bellator Christi.com will be undergoing changes in the days and weeks ahead. Due to this upgrade, the website’s accessibility may be temporarily limited or the site may be down for a period of time. Please be patient. The upgrades will greatly benefit the experience here at Bellator Christi ministries. A future article will explain some of the benefits of this change.

Let me take a moment to thank those who have subscribed to this website. May God richly bless you. A big thanks also goes out to those who have supported this ministry by sharing articles, especially Jorge Gil Calderon and Dr. Frank Turek (CrossExamined.org), Dr. Mike Spaulding (Soaring Eagle Ministries), Greg West (The Poached Egg.net), and Vincent S. Artale, Jr. (TalidimBlogging). I also want to thank Berl Childers of Huntsville Baptist Church. He has offered his expertise in helping me with the technology involved in running this site, as well as the podcasting ministry. I would be amiss if I did not also thank those who took time out of their busy schedules to be interviewed on my podcast. Their intellect and expertise in their chosen fields have added an extreme amount of depth to the podcast.

Finally, I ask that you would pray for this online ministry as this website has reached over 190 nations for Christ and continues to grow to the glory of God. Pray that God would grant me direction and insight on how to develop and grow this ministry.

Blessings,

Brian Chilton

Taking it to the MAT

Greetings loyal reader,

I would like to take a brief moment to describe some changes that will soon take place at Bellator Christi. Since I have finished my masters program, I wish to post more frequently here on the website. I used to wrestle, although very briefly–mainly because I wasn’t very good at it. Nevertheless, I remember the coach saying something like, “Take it to the mat,” telling the wrestlers to practice wrestling. The “mat” referred to the apparatus that was used to wrestle upon. That’s why I would also like to take the ideas that really matter to the MAT. By MAT, I address the following format for the website:

M = Monday Defense. On Mondays, we will discuss issues that defend the faith.

A = Assessment Tuesdays. On Tuesdays, we will assess some aspect of the culture and trends and provide a relevant Christian response.

T = Theology Thursdays. On Thursdays, I will post an article on some issue of theology, teaching what the orthodox Christian church holds (by orthodox, I mean the classic, traditional understandings and not the denomination).

The podcast Redeeming Truth Radio could be aired on a different day, but for now I will keep it on Mondays.

Keep this ministry in your prayers as we try to make an impact for the Kingdom of God.

 

Blessings,

 

Pastor Brian

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

Greetings!

First of all, I would like to thank each and every one of our readers. You have helped make this website a huge success. At last check, PastorBrianChilton.wordpress.com has reached another milestone, as the website has now reached 177 nations for the cause of Christ. This website continues to be devoted to teaching, proclaiming, and defending the risen Lord Jesus and traditional Christianity, in general. That is exactly what this website will continue to do in 2015. However, for the next week or two, this website will be somewhat dormant as I seek to take some much needed rest and will spend some quality time with my family. After the Christmas break, I will continue to post weekly articles and papers. In 2015, several issues will be addressed, including, but not limited to the following: the historicity of Jesus of Nazareth, how one deciphers truth claims, Old Testament issues, issues pertaining to biblical interpretation, the theology of self-defense, and much more. If there are any issues that you would like Pastor Brian to research, be sure to provide the issue by commenting to this post. Also, be sure to check out Pastor Brian’s weekly internet show titled “Redeeming Truth” at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/pastorbrianchilton. The show airs live every Monday at 12 noon (EST).

I hope that you all have a most joyous Christmas and a most blessed New Year!

Love in Christ,

Pastor Brian
