This is a blog with a very specific audience. I know it may exclude some of you, but it may be healthy for you to eavesdrop.

The Insomnia of Jesus

The next time you find yourself unable to sleep due to worry, ask whether you’re in the Galilee waters or the Gethsemane garden. Ask yourself whether your wakefulness is of the weakening flesh or the awakening Spirit.

No, It Actually Is More Blessed To Give Than to Receive

I am a long way from mastering this principle but I can attest that the Lord means what he says. The joy that comes through giving is deeper and better and more satisfying than the fleeting joy that comes through hoarding.

"Good" Friday (2013)

The amazing thing about Good Friday is that it was -- and is -- part of the "good" declared by God at creation. And it was a good for us.

Why Christians Should Read Fiction

I’ve found that most people who tell me that fiction is a waste of time are folks who seem to hold to a kind of sola cerebra vision of the Christian life that just doesn’t square with the Bible.

Screwtape on Easter (2013)

It was from the imagination of C.S. Lewis that we were first exposed to a devil’s diabolical advice for the capturing of the human heart through the fictional correspondence between a senior devil, Screwtape, to his nephew, Wormwood. Here is a freshly imagined correspondence, just intercepted, of course, related to Easter.

Jack now has his turn at the silver screen, with the film “Jack the Giant-Slayer,” in theaters now. I saw it, and was disappointed. Here’s why.

Porn Has No One But Itself to Blame

The pornography industry has succeeded so well that it has forced itself into decline. It has made sex so pervasive that it has become boring.

Former Disney star Ashley Benson is busy promoting a racy R-rated film, "Spring Breakers," which features (among other things) a threesome scene. And if that's not bad enough, it's being promoted via a cover story in Seventeen Magazine, a magazine which has openly shared that they target girls as young as 12.

Should a Christian Dentist Fire His Too-Hot Hygienist?

Jesus said “If your eye offends you, gouge it out.” He didn’t say “If you find your neighbor’s eyes are too sexy, gouge them out.” It isn’t a just society when women are hired only if they meet certain standards of “sexiness.”

Why Johnny Cash Still Matters

February 26 would have been Johnny Cash’s 81st birthday. Unlike many celebrities whose name dies out with the obituaries of their fan base, Cash continues to matter. And I think it matters that we understand why.

I do not know what tends to occupy your life. If you are like most people, including myself, it trends toward the trivial and mundane.
