Men and Abortion: Free Pro-Life Conference MP3s

  No one can deny a person's lived experience. People can argue with us about the psychological stuff, they can argue with us about whatever. But they can't take away the truth of someone's lived experience. -Vicki Thorn, founder of the National Office of Post Abortion Healing and Reconciliation and Project Rachel In my capacity as...

It’s Not For You

The first thing you see when you open up The Eternal Revolution, or at least before you get to the main text of the book, is a warning: This is a book written for Christians, that is, those who accept that Jesus of Nazareth was the Christ, the Messiah, the Son of God, the Second...

All For the Glory of God

"Whatever you do, do all to the glory of God." 1 Corinthians 10:31   As Christians, we hear the instruction to do everything for, or to, the Glory of God. But what does it actually look like when we do things for His glory, and not our own? The story of Gideon is a great... Continue Reading →

Pagan Christian Churches

Over the past few years, I have been reading some of the trendy business strategy books that have been coming out. I'm not convinced it has been particularly useful, for other than Seth Godin there have been few, if any, that seemed to offer much in the way of advice that should be applied to...

Such an observation begs the question of whether God is withholding such gifts in our own times. If you consider that the events of the old testament played out over several... Continue Reading →

Christians as the Soul of the World

Sometime in the second century after Christ, a letter to Diognetus was written explaining Christianity. The author is unknown, and it is not known if the Diognetus that it was addressed to was the Diognetus that tutored Marcus Aurelius - but those details are unrelated to the importance of the letter, now known as the...

What Does Religious Freedom Look Like?

It is a tenet of this blog to avoid current events. This post will push the limit, since there are current events that inspired it and will be mentioned; however the purpose is for more persistent.
