Mark 6:30-31 The apostles gathered around Jesus and reported to him all they had done and taught.Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest Reflection The background...

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 1

My last post was a reaction to the current news cycle and how abortion has dominated in the headlines (here) and one insightful individual asked about the Christian theology of life that should ultimately guide us as we deal with topics like abortion.

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? Romans 5:8 "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." This means precisely that even when... Continue Reading →

I recently wrote on three situations within the American church-- Jerry Falwell' Vanity Fair interview, Phanatik renouncing Christianity, and Lecrae speaking about losing events over his social comments (read it here). In that post I teased that I would write about what troubles me with the Church today, there are two interconnected issues which do... Continue Reading →

An Instinct to Fail

Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” Genesis 1:28 One argument I often bristle at in a conversation comes when...
