People get into conspiracy theories, political movements, scientific or technological trends and even Christianity as a method of forgetting personal failure and disappointment in their lives. Sometimes it really has not so much to do with a truth of whatever the subject as it is a group activity…a way of... Continue reading

Everyone’s a gambler. I don’t care how much you may have a disdain for gambling or think it sinful. You gamble. So do I. What do I mean by that? There is so much outside of our direct control, we must put our faith in something that will get us... Continue reading

Freedom is everything to us, especially in America where it’s the Land of the Free. In the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson wrote that human beings each had inalienable rights to pursue life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Of course, he was taking the quote from Locke but used happiness... Continue reading

I read several articles from Christian publications about Joshua Harris’ apostasy. These things seem to be more frequent, but my guess isn’t that they’re more frequent. It’s just that we’re in a celebrity Christian culture and when the celebrities fall away, everyone wants to analyze why or even how something... Continue reading

Discipleship is a vague term within church circles, ranging from the harshly legalistic to just about whatever you want it to be.

"Therefore, do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. Do not offer the parts of your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer the... Continue reading

In Islam, there's a weird doctrine about the eternality of the Quran. The hadith teach that the Quran wasn't created in the 7th century. They believe the Quran, in it's verbalized or written form, has always existed, from eternity. However, they also believe in the tawid, that Allah is one... Continue reading

Dallas Willard stated that in modern America, freedom and liberty are euphemisms for impulse and pleasure. When pressed on particular tropes of freedom and liberty, regardless of the more popular issues being bantered around, it's tough to disagree with Willard on this point. An ethic of unfettered impulse or pleasure... Continue reading

Rejection is probably the most significant way to describe life after the Fall. Some would say, 'no, it's sin', as if rejection, abandonment and human throw-aways aren't sinful things. Sin is a description and the outflow of a ruptured relationship. We were created to be God's human family to rule... Continue reading

I live in the south. When it comes to Christianity, it's sometimes tough to tell the 'good guys' from the 'bad guys' around here. Most people go to church in the south, whether they are followers or not. It's just part of what you do when raised here (I tend... Continue reading

". . . the mouth speaks what the heart is full of" Luke 6:45c. This book represents more than three years of regurgitating what was on Steve's heart and in his brain regarding the Kingdom. After the third chapter, he had what I call a brain fart. He put the... Continue reading
