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.
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.
During my high school years, I spent a majority of my after school working hours (and summers as well) in various roles at the local private country club.Growing up […]
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.
My interactions with Christians the last few weeks has been, troubling. What do I mean by this? Well, in that last two weeks I have been told that I […]
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
For Paul, sound doctrine is more than truth propositions; they are ideas that lead to proper Christian activity.
This is not to say that children are not desperately wicked like the rest of us, they are, but their wickedness is far different from ours.
In many ways the asking of this question reminds us of our current fallen status regardless of Christ’s work in our lives.
"The reality of it is, the “good ole days” are a myth. A figment of our active imagination and short memories looking for reprieve from thoughtful interaction with the world around us because, well it means we have to change, and change can be really hard."

I usually don’t react to articles. I usually work through whatever God has on my heart or answer a question that one of my readers has sent to me, but today I am reacting to an article that in my mind could become dangerous if not corrected (which is the reason for my interaction with it). The article entitled, “8 Signs You Are Under Spiritual Attack” published on Charismamag.com. I am going to try to lay out for you how I am going to approach this: first I am going to identify what spiritual warfare is not; then I am going to identify what spiritual warfare does look like; and thirdly I am going to give some tips on how to do combat with the enemy.
There are moments in all of our lives where the people who are the closest to us are the people that we treat the worst, where we become so used to their impact on our life that we become blind to their acts of service…or their kind words.
Being an evangelical, one of the most prominent phrases that I hear on a regular basis is the tried and true verbiage, “Jesus is my personal Lord and Savior,” when stating they are a Christian.
