Repentance Under The Microscope


I once saw a man holding a sign that read: Divorce is an abomination. Repent! That’s it. Nothing else. Nothing about forgiveness, nothing about God, nothing about Christ or His blood soaked cross and empty tomb. I couldn’t help but approach the man and ask him one question. “Repent to what?” He didn’t answer....

Jesus And Abortion


If April 1 is April Fools’ Day, then March 25 is Divine Fool’s Day. Falling nine months before Christmas, it’s the day when God set in motion what appeared to be a foolish plan. The Creator of heaven and earth became a two-celled human zygote gradually drifting down the fallopian tube of an unwed Jewish virgin....

The Gospel And Good Works


I was asked to speak about "The Gospel and Good Works" for E1 Ministries recently. Here is what I had to say. [This video explains how your best "good works" are the times you've been the most like Christ.]...

We Are All The Duggars


Leo Tolstoy famously wrote, “All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” The problem is that I’ve yet to meet a family that fits into Tolstoy’s tidy categories of “happy” and “unhappy.” The reality is far messier. Put tears and laughter, love and betrayal, fights and hugs into a blender and out will come a family....

Tattoos With Mom


The lighting is florescent, the music is loud and heavy. There is a table in the corner with bottles of iodine, rubbing alcohol, and a bio hazard container full of used needles. You’re surrounded by bad flash art featuring: marijuana leaves, devils, pin-up girls, and Christ figures....

Jesus Knew What He Was Getting


The guys Jesus chose to be His disciples have always fascinated me. The first two who were called into His posse were Andrew and John, friends who were just following a freak in the wilderness who was dressed in camel hair while eating locusts and honey. Sounds pretty strange and not very promising....

Today is Friday the 13th of February and that means tomorrow we celebrate Valentine’s Day. Two days back-to-back that most people recognize as being very different. Friday the 13th is most famous for being the name of a horror film franchise about a knife-wielding psychopath named Jason....

An Open Letter To George Perdikis


On January 21st, former Newsboys guitarist and co-founder George Perdikis wrote an article titled, “I Co-Founded One of the Most Popular Christian Rock Bands Ever… and I’m Now An Atheist” which gained quite a bit of buzz. I saw it popping up over and over again on social media and finally decided to read it; after reading my heart broke....

I’m Not Good. Christ Hold Fast.


I’m a Christian and I’m not very good at good things. In fact, I’m downright miserable at them. I’m a cradle Christian. In other words, I was born into a Christian home and spoon fed the Bible from day one. I’m a preacher’s kid, a preacher’s oldest son in fact. I grew up with memory verses, Bible reading plans,...

Who Puts His Hand To The Plow?


“No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.” These are the words of Jesus to a man who promised to follow him after saying good-bye to his family. Tough stuff. I admit this text used to trouble me. I mean, what is Jesus saying?...
