Tribute to Stephen Hawking

Yes, I know he denied the existence of God. Frankly, I think it is very un-Christian to make fun of the man because of this fact. Let me ask you this, person who claims to be a Christian: If Christ is judge, why have you taken His responsibility upon yourself? I may question whether you... Continue Reading →


Why We Fail At Discipleship

My wife and I really love pizza. There was a period of her pregnancy during which her doctor told her that she shouldn’t eat heavy meals, bread, or much sugar. I was going to attempt this diet with her. The problem? We really love pizza! One day, the craving was so bad that we found... Continue Reading →

Is Christian Morality Behind the Times?

In Luke’s gospel, we discovered that the goal of discipleship is repentance and that God calls His people into humility. Because Christ calls us into repentance, there are many people who simply won’t become genuine Christ followers. I hear things like, “I would have to give up too much to follow Christ,” “Religious rules are... Continue Reading →


Hypocrisy and Jesus

We are a people lost in our own hypocrisy. I often get to talk with people who claim to love Jesus about why they are not a member of a local church. Almost always, the answer is that the church is full of hypocrites. We might jokingly say, “There is always room for one more!”... Continue Reading →


The Christian Message, Condemnation or Peace?

This last week, there was another school shooting. In the aftermath of the school shooting, we heard and read many opinions about what ought to be done. We also heard many people condemning those who disagree with them. Any shooting, in fact, any death, is a tragedy and we ought to keep the families of... Continue Reading →


Another School Shooting: I think we’ve missed the mark

Yesterday there was yet another shooting in another school. Today there is yet another debate on gun control. The left wants more regulation and the right wants more freedom; whatever that means. If I thought for one second that public school violence could be solved with one debate over one issue, I may not be... Continue Reading →


Servanthood Discipleship

When we think about discipleship, we often think of it in terms of pop-culture rather than true biblical discipleship. We develop a model based more on the relationship between Obi-Wan and Anakin Skywalker than the relationship that Jesus had with His disciples. Because of this trend in the church, we have developed this environment where... Continue Reading →


What is the Point of Discipleship?

Genuine discipleship seems to be virtually lost in the organized church today. We have many lessons, sermons, classes, conferences, revivals, rallies, concerts, and camps; but genuine humbling and honest discipleship is absent. Most people are not growing more mature in the faith. Relationships with Christ are not deepening. Unity is more and more a rarity.... Continue Reading →


On The 2018 State of the Union Address

Before I address just a couple things that I noticed in President Trump’s Address Tuesday night, I need to make some presuppositional statements. First of all, Christ is neither a Republican or Democrat. He is concerned politically with His own reign and His kingdom is not of this world (John 18:36). Christ cares deeply about...
