Website Under Construction

Bellator 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 (, Dr. Mike Spaulding (Soaring Eagle Ministries), Greg West (The Poached, 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.

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.




Pastor Brian
