Does Science Equal Truth?

Without exposure to other ways of thinking, a K-12 education will make you and your children effectively indoctrinated into a myth even more pervasive than the boogie man.

Honest Struggle

In some ways this post is confessional. I have lately been telling myself that I need to begin following my own advice…

What’s A Win?

Yet, it seems many people are far more fired up about a Supreme Court nominee, a religious freedom order or famous politicians showing friendship and favor toward Christian leaders, churches and organizations.

Are You Ready? Part 4

What commands your energy, your passion, your resources, your time? What consumes your thoughts and influences your decision making process? What holds ultimate value in your life?

Real Authenticity

Sometimes I think we get so deep into the fog that we can’t see, or maybe even refuse to see our problems. We lie to ourselves, saying that we are okay so that we don’t have to confront the pain we’ve concealed so well for so long.

The Irony of Christmas

  During my high school years, I spent a majority of my after school working hours (and summers as well) […]

Give Thanks

It is appropriate on this day, almost exactly one month in advance of the day this country has deemed as the official day assigned to the birth of our Lord and Savior, to reflect on the subject of thankfulness.

Are You Ready?: Part 3

“Getting ready” for the specific things to which we are called as believers requires intentionality.

Does Jesus Reign?

There is no such thing as a “lesser evil”. There is only evil and good…know that if you chose an evil, that you still chose evil. It is not better to look at porn and pleasure yourself than it is to fornicate with a hooker on the street. Both are evil and we should participate in neither.

Are You Ready?: Part 2

In Part 2 of the "Are You Ready?" series we evaluate our current status, are we truly ready for it means to be Christians?

Questions?

Have you ever heard an argument against the existence of God that you were almost persuaded by?

Are You Ready?: Part I

Part 1 of the "Are you ready?" series looks at the need for preparation, establishing the groundwork for what it means to "be ready".

Unity is not Uniformity

  My interactions with Christians the last few weeks has been, troubling. What do I mean by this? Well, in […]

Just Wanna Be Kids

This world is an ugly place. It’s corrupt, it’s disingenuous, it’s brutal. It seems that every passing year produces a new level of evil with which young people must contend and an ever-broadening exposure to pressure, temptation and availability.

Christianity and Illegal Immigration

This gift given to us is free to us and costs us nothing to acquire, but that does not mean that this grace was free. No, for God this grace cost a heavy toll, the death of his Son

My Trip To Haiti

  When I arrived home from Haiti, I was asked to do a blog post on the missions trip but […]

Strength in Weakness

You probably haven’t ever been whipped or imprisoned for your faith. But we all share in weaknesses.

What Can I Do?

"...you quickly realize what happens is these people were being rascals and didn’t listen to a lot of what Jesus said."

At Our Worst

In all honesty, it has always been difficult for me to reconcile the wrathful side of God with His loving side.

Christianity and Homosexuality

Ok, so this has needed to be done now and from dialogue that I have had in the past week or so that inclination was affirmed. So in this post I am going to be as faithful as possible to a Christian view of homosexuality.

The Sign Of True Calling

In every avenue, I have pursued it and in every avenue, it has been denied. For a really long time I thought that this just meant that I needed to wait just a little longer. But after some recent events...

Some Thoughts on Authentic Christian Fellowship

Being a person feeling a call to ministry and having the training as such, I find myself on a continual basis examining my faith, ministry, the church, and mission. A conversation being had on Facebook (curse you Facebook) got me thinking about what it means to be in meaningful Christian relationships and how it should look.

Why Are You Cast Down, Oh My Soul?

There are seasons in everyone’s life where nothing seems to be going right, where nothing you do makes it better, and everything that is done feels wrong. I had felt this way deep down inside for a very long time…not knowing how to deal with it, or express it.

Evangelism: We’re Doing It WRONG

So after last week’s reflective post its right back down to business. Today I am writing on a topic that is very near and dear to my heart. Evangelism is one of the few topics in today’s church that is given a decent amount of sermon time.

The Church & Transgenderism

Transgenderism once called Gender Identity Disorder (GID) and most recently renamed Gender Dysphoria is defined as a person with, “…a strong desire to be the opposite sex.”(Young, 1999).

Depression and Hope

Perhaps one of the most misunderstood issues within the church is the issue of depression. Many don’t know how to deal with it…not Christians struggling with it, or Christians trying to help the struggling.
