The Narrow Road is a Wide Place

Contrary to popular opinion, you will never find freedom living for yourself. Since many people believe a self-centered life of unrestrained desires is the only way to freedom, they then postulate that Jesus’ teaching about the narrow way indicates a life of oppression. This idea could not be further from the truth. The narrow road … Continue reading The Narrow Road is a Wide Place

When Everything is Political

You know it is bad when saying "Merry Christmas" has become political. In communism, everything is political. It is a far-reaching political system that sees no limit to what aspects of its subject’s lives it can control. The same is true for Marxism. There is no room for dissent because nothing is more important than … Continue reading When Everything is Political

Useless Drones and Faithful Ministers

To borrow language from John Calvin, both “useless drones and faithful ministers” find their way into pulpits, and we must be careful to distinguish between them. As believers, we are to find faithful ministers and place ourselves under their ministry, but we must be aware that there are others out there who have a form … Continue reading Useless Drones and Faithful Ministers

Avoiding Misinformation on Social Media

Whether we realize it or not, we have all been misled on social media. These platforms serve us a steady diet of fake news, misleading content, and deep fakes, but where we are most susceptible is not where we would expect it. It is not the posts from people we consider opponents to our views … Continue reading Avoiding Misinformation on Social Media

Social Media is Rarely a Healthy Alternative to Fake News

I am often amazed by what people who decry fake news post on their social media feed. Often they complain about fake news with one breath and post more of it to their pages with the next. I get it; there is a lot of fake news out there. Mainstream media is not the bastion … Continue reading Social Media is Rarely a Healthy Alternative to Fake News

It Starts with a Stick – Children’s Book

One of the questions I often ponder is if creativity is part of the sanctification process. What I mean by that is, since Jesus is creative, as we grow to be more like him, will we grow to be more creative. We could ask the same question of our ability to reason, organize, manage money, … Continue reading It Starts with a Stick – Children’s Book

When the Mob Asks, “Are You a Christian?”

A 30-second video has been circling the web for the past couple of days. It is a group of protestors surrounding a female bystander demanding that she raise her fist for their cause. There is much that could be said about this clip, but what some people have missed is the question asked of the … Continue reading When the Mob Asks, “Are You a Christian?”

7 Ways to Feed Your Faith in College

A busy academic and social schedule in college can easily pull the Christian away from God’s Word. But remember: you cannot defend God and His Word if you are not sanctified (set apart) for Him by means of contact with His Word. Too many Christian students drift away from the faith in college because they … Continue reading 7 Ways to Feed Your Faith in College

When Christians Try to Please the Culture

Society is filled with voices trying to tell us what to think and how to live, and we often spend too much time trying to please the unpleasable. Too often, churches spend more time trying to charm the culture rather than serving our Savior. We seek to entice the lost with entertainment when they are … Continue reading When Christians Try to Please the Culture

Secularism’s New Creed

Signs have begun popping up in front of houses, which seem to list several core doctrines of secularism. The signs say, “In this house, we believe black lives matter, women’s rights are human rights, no human is illegal, science is real, love is love, and kindness is everything. It reads like an apostles' creed of … Continue reading Secularism’s New Creed
