A Call for Endurance and Faith

This world is working to draw its net around Christians who hold to the truths of God's Word, and many Christians are denying clear scriptural teachings to sidestep the trap. We seem to see more and more Christians and Christian institutions failing to stand firm when the opposition to biblical sexuality comes to their door. To deny such … Continue reading A Call for Endurance and Faith

Has the Internet Corrupted our Moral Outrage?

I recently had an experience that is common to all. After rushing to meet a self-imposed deadline, I hit publish on one of my articles, and I awoke the following day to an unpublished comment by someone who was literally shocked at the ambiguity of the article, its lack of biblical truth, and my dangerous practice. They then … Continue reading Has the Internet Corrupted our Moral Outrage?

Two Dangers Facing Christians Under Cultural Pressure

There are two dangers Christians face when culture pushes against our beliefs. The first is to give in to the pressure to conform, and the second is to stand defiant in an ungodly way. The first danger reveals itself in some professing Christians' fear of the world's disapproval. This fear is not only true of some churchgoers but … Continue reading Two Dangers Facing Christians Under Cultural Pressure

Recognizing the Curse in Our Work

Last week was a rough work week. First, it was exhausting due to its long hours. Second, my health gave me some trouble, and third, I dropped one of the many balls I have been juggling on a project, and now I am cleaning up the pieces. None of these issues were that significant in … Continue reading Recognizing the Curse in Our Work

Never Shop on an Empty Soul

Spiritual emptiness can manifest itself in countless ways, but in our culture, one of the ways it reveals itself is in shopping to find fulfillment. This is the kind of shopping that seeks to medicate a dry and thirsty soul with consumer products. In a consumer culture like ours, fulfillment shopping is exactly what we should expect. Many people will … Continue reading Never Shop on an Empty Soul

Fertility Is Not A Disease

The sexual revolution has so altered the worldview of many that we now often treat fertility as a disease. For women, fertility has ruined careers, holds the glass ceiling in place, and, before the technology was invented to end its tyrannical reign, it even kept women from fulfilling their purpose in life by forcing them to neglect their careers and devote time to nurturing their families. Thankfully, to the secular mind, science has overcome this atrocity, but are we looking for fulfillment in the wrong places?... CLICK TO READ MORE

The 3 Motivations to Work

There tend to be three primary motivations that drive people to accomplish something, but it is not until we reach the third that we are nearing maturity. For example, as I sit down to write this article, there are multiple impulses, way more than three, moving me along, but they all fit into the three categories … Continue reading The 3 Motivations to Work

Smartphones and Fallen Natures

Have our smartphones made us better people? Back in the 90s, the power of the computer age was still in its infancy. For example, if you wanted to watch something, you only had so many options. You were held captive to the schedules of the major broadcasting networks and cable companies. Sure, you could pop a tape into the VCR, but … Continue reading Smartphones and Fallen Natures

The Theology of Place in a Virtual World

https://open.spotify.com/episode/444hJGzBmbZnjSGbEC2ZZu?si=LbDGuS7iTlaElxa8P8AIMw I am concerned that our increase in virtual activity is affecting us more than we realize. There is a theology of place that needs to be considered. I hesitate to use that phrase because it is often used by those who claim to be Christians but deny the faith's core doctrines—those who try to … Continue reading The Theology of Place in a Virtual World

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
