Text this Week: Let’s Go to Work

1 Timothy 4:7b-16 Train yourself for a holy life! While physical training has some value, training in holy living is useful for everything. It has promise for this life now and the life to come. This saying is reliable and deserves complete acceptance. We work and struggle for this: “Our hope is set on the… Continue Reading →

Toward a Theology of Life: part 2

In my last post I began an explanation of how I approach the topic of abortion (here). In this post I want to trace more of the basis for my views on life and how that influences my life. But with these posts please recognize I am working out my own theology and while I… Continue Reading →

Text for the Week: Iron Sharpens Iron

Titus 2:1-14 But you should talk in a way that is consistent with sound teaching. Tell the older men to be sober, dignified, sensible, and healthy in respect to their faith, love, and patience.

Text for the Week: Spreading Peace

John 20:19-23 When it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and the doors of the house where the disciples had met were locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” After he said this, he showed them his hands and… Continue Reading →

While We were Outside God Loved Us

This week I saw a ridiculous debate on Twitter, is it appropriate to say, “God loves you” to those outside the Church. How is this even a debate?
