I got in a war of words with a prominent reformed pastor the other day. I’ll call him “Junior,” because my fight is not so much with him, but the error he represents. Through the miracle of of Facebook, we went head to head. There’s no fight quite like a theological fight, and this one..
Some of you are completely unaware of your talent, and, frankly, it disgusts me. You’re one of those people who can just leap out of bed, pull on your shorts, and jump into your flip-flops, like it was nothing — like it was breathing or drinking a glass of water or taking in an effortless..
You should pay very close attention to what disgusts you. Mind you, I’m not saying you should seek to be disgusted. Far from it. We’re encouraged to find that which is “lovely and praiseworthy,” but that implies something: you were given an internal meter for measuring these things–by God Himself. For the sake of illustration,..
So sue me — a Monkees tune can make me fight back the tears.. I had good cause. I was driving home after dropping off my 19 year old son, Samuel, at the airport. My fourteen year old son was navigating for me, and setting my old-guy play list to auto-shuffle, and — oh..
Picture the children of Israel marching closer to the promised land, and they encounter some really vile Canaanites. I’m talking real cannibals here. They are covered with greasy soot, caked on their faces by the burning of their own children in altars kept smouldering to Molech. They smell of gore and greed, and their spears..

Preach the sinner’s prayer and then everything will sorta just fix itself, right? Well, the entire gospel includes..
In Defense of Empire Rand Paul and his pops, should be applauded for defending the Constitution, but thoroughly scolded for lamenting a better way. Newsflash, folks: some ideas are better than others. The term “Arab Spring” might invoke an image of fragrant grains blooming in a once parched desert and a luxury Hilton opening its..
Fooled you. This is NOT about sex. This is about people who call themselves “believers” and only appear to have a very thin thread of actual scripture in their mental wardrobe. They quote the same verses over and over and over again. If the Bible were clothing, they would be wearing a G string. In..
First of all, good luck. I am about to offend a few of you, but there just aren’t that many real Christian fellowships out there. How do I know this? Well, let’s see: Bruce Jenner would be a good place to start. Whenever you pile up your groceries at the supermarket check-out and you see..
Our God is Marching On.. “For three sins of Israel, even for four, I will not relent. They sell the innocent for silver, and the needy for a pair of sandals. They trample on the heads of the poor as on the dust of the ground and deny justice to the oppressed. Father and son..
