“Good Deeds” and “Nice” Aren’t Getting You to Heaven

You’ve probably heard this before:

“People who are basically good and do their best will go to Heaven. I’m nice and I do more good things than bad things, so I’m going, too.”

Now, before we dive into the reasons that this thinking is flawed and dangerous, let’s first see what the Bible says about who gets to go to Heaven. Christianity’s teaching on this matter is unique, because other religions would largely agree that good works are the basis for a pleasant afterlife (We will address the false belief that “all religions are basically alike” in a future post).

Dinosaurs in the Garden? Creation and Earth History Museum

On the 28th of September, many museums observed Free Museum Day by offering (you guessed it) free admission. The Creation and Earth Museum in Santee, California, offers free admission all year long, but observed the day instead by hosting a free family event that featured a number of guest speakers, including Ray Comfort, and the rollout of several new “Kids Knee High Exhibits.” Continue Reading

Upcoming So Cal Event

Joshua Carvahlo from Global Gospel Movement is excited about an upcoming event geared toward high school and college aged students that are interested in spreading the Gospel. We have seen his evangelism in action, and this may be something that your family would like to prayerfully consider attending.

Movement 133 is a family of college students, high school students and spiritual parents who have united together to see revival on the college campuses of California and America. In the past 3 years, either a house of prayer or a strong prayer meeting has been established on nearly every college campus in Southern California through Movement 133 and it’s beginning to spread to high schools as well. Evangelism swept through last year with the help of the Circuit Riders and this year discipleship is being implemented more than ever. Come be a part of this incredible Student Summit and stand with us for revival on America’s college and high school campuses. #Mo133

Book Review: Tipping Our Kings

This week we were pleased to receive a review copy of Tipping our Kings: Finding the Truth in a World Full of Options by Jack Crabtree.

Jack is an international missionary in training who isn’t waiting to be in a far off land before he takes part in the great commission. He writes, “Talking to people is easy, but impacting lives is God’s business, not ours. It must be Him working through us.”

Tipping our Kings recounts the true story of two men whose budding friendship is built upon conversations of the utmost importance. Jack candidly shares his initial feelings of prejudice and selfishness as he tries to avoid Nicholas, a philosophy student and professor, after his wife suggests that they should meet. His feelings quickly change as he sees the eternal significance of their conversations.

In Weight of Glory, C. S. Lewis wrote:

“It is a serious thing, to live in a society of possible gods and goddesses, to remember that the dullest and most uninteresting person you talk to may one day be a creature which, if you saw it now, you would be strongly tempted to worship, or else a horror and a corruption such as you now meet, if at all, only in a nightmare. All day long we are, in some degree, helping each other to one or other of these destinations. It is in the light of these overwhelming possibilities, it is with the awe and the circumspection proper to them, that we should conduct all our dealings with one another, all friendships, all loves, all play, all politics. There are no ‘ordinary’ people. You have never talked to a mere mortal.”

Readers will find that the retelling enables them to trace the work of the Spirit throughout the friendship, and will be reminded that no one is exempt from the outcomes described by Lewis above.

The book crescendos with an all-night conversation between Nicholas and Jack that is sure to encourage Christians, and conversely challenge non-Christians.



  • Professional book quality. Sturdy paper and a typeface that won’t leave you squinting.
  • Quick and enjoyable read. We both read through in one sitting.
  • Jack’s writing style and the content of his story is very interesting and encouraging.
  • The appendices offer valuable tools for practical apologetic conversations.



  • This is not so much a “con” as it is a “heads up.” There are some philosophical discussions included that will likely fly right over the head of younger folks. There are definitions for some of the trickier terms, though, which we find to be a helpful touch. For this reason, we would probably recommend that parents read the book before passing it on to their high school aged child so that they will be able to better answer any questions that arise.
