More Lessons Learned Along the Way

A few months ago I shared a few lessons I’ve learned along the way—a few things I’ve learned about preaching since I rather unexpectedly found myself regularly standing in the pulpit. I want to add a couple of items to my list.

Does It Matter Which Bible We Use?

The Old Testament was written in the language of its writers, which was Hebrew, and the New Testament was written in the language of its writers -- or at least the dominant language of commerce and culture -- which was Greek. The Bibles we read are translations of those languages into the English language. So does it matter which Bible we use?

'Being' Discipled

It’s a common phrase in Christian circles. We talk of "discipling" someone, "being" discipled, or going where there is a strong emphasis on discipleship. What’s wrong with this picture?

3 Ways to Live With Joy

Every sunrise lays a new day before us and asks, “What will you do with this day? What will this day be?”

What Chris Rock Can Teach Us About Marriage

Most Christians don’t look to Chris Rock for advice. But on one point, he has something we should hear.

Mind the Gap

If you have ever been to London, you are familiar with the "tube," London’s expansive underground transport system. Once there, a constant refrain -- over loudspeakers and on signs -- is "Mind the Gap." There are, of course, many "gaps" to be mindful of.

As people are exposed to more dishonesty around them, and if it seems "everyone" is doing it, then cheating becomes even more pervasive and socially acceptable.

Premarital Sex?

Christians talk a lot about premarital sex. And I think that’s a mistake, for one, because the grammar is skewed. (Read more)

Multiply by Francis Chan (book review)

Multiply is a good book and one that fills an important niche. If you think back to the days when you were a new believer, I am certain you will see the benefit of this type of material.

Who Do You Think You Are? (book review)

Driscoll says rightly that even as Christians “we’re continually forgetting who we are in Christ and filling that void by placing our identity in pretty much anything else.”

Pleasing Grief and Mournful Joy

Before the cross we are all invited to kneel, to trust, to confess, to weep with that pleasing grief and mournful joy, and there to find the freedom of forgiveness.

Culture Keepers

The idea of culture "keepers" is significant. There are aspects of culture – a nation’s culture, a church’s culture, a family’s culture – that must be "kept."

Vertical Church (Book Review)

Vertical Church is a book with both strengths and weaknesses—very helpful strengths and very dangerous weaknesses. If you can thinking discerningly to embrace what is helpful and reject what is so very unhelpful, you may well find the effort rewarding.
