The Cult of Personality

A growing phenomenon within the ranks of churches, large and small (but mostly large), is the cult of personality. It’s when a person becomes the center of attention rather than Christ; an individual looms larger than a mission; a figure is given more status than the organization itself.

Prayerlessness Is Selfishness

The things you pray about are the things you trust God to handle. The things you neglect to pray about are the things you trust you can handle on your own.

One city. Three senior pastors of megachurches. And in just a six month period, three moral failures.

The Church Without _______

I'm generally not a big fan of bumper stickers, of advertising platitudinous tweets or angry opinions with my vehicle. But this one caught my attention.

Remember the Infertile Too

What if pastors set aside time in the church service to pray for children for the infertile? The Proverbs 31 woman warrants attention, but what about the 1Samuel 1 woman?

Am I Reformed?

Got your attention with the title, didn’t I? At least, the attention of a number of you who consider it a hot topic.

The Boundaries of Evangelicalism

As I survey the contemporary church, one of my gravest concerns is the power and prevalence of mysticism. It is at the heart of Sarah Young’s bestselling Jesus Calling, it is in all the much-loved books by John Eldredge... (read more)

Six People

Barbara Streisand was recently asked “the question.” You know it. It’s been around for ages: “If you could invite anyone, past or present, what six people would you invite for dinner?” Who would you pick?

Well, This Is Going To Be Awkward!

Our obsession with awkwardness reveals that we have greater love for conformity than for uniqueness and that our love is contingent on not embarrassing us.

Do You Want to Be a Burden to Your Children?

I love being the answer to problems. But when I need other people, I am reminded that I am not alone. I am not the solution. I am not the Messiah.

When They Were Small

Taking some time to reflect on my children...when they were small.

The Reason Behind a Day of Reason

Today has been traditionally set aside as the National Day of Prayer. Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx, recently named to be the next Transportation Secretary by President Obama, has instead declared today to be “A Day of Reason” for his home city.

The Thing About Sex

Very few Christians have developed a Bible-based theology of sex. Fewer still live out that theology of sex.

Stuff Christians Say

It seems to me that there are at least two varieties of words in the Christian lexicon, those that are trite and those that are specific. We impoverish ourselves if we never learn and teach the specific.

The Secular Boom

Something very specific took place during the decade of the 90s, that we are only now truly learning about.

The Humble Pope?

Just three of the claims of the papacy come into sharp contrast with any claim to humility. Why are evangelicals raising up this man as an example of virtue?

Howard Schultz, Tim Keller and "Bearing False Witness"

The ninth commandment forbids us from lying, but it does far more than that. It demands that we deliberately seek out the truth.

The Answer is Evil (2013)

I am heartbroken for the families, furious at the evil, and more resolved than ever to give my life to Christ's mission.
