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.

A Father's Love

When I was 16, my parents kicked me out of the house. They had tried everything. Nothing worked.

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.

Of Food and Feeding

While pastors are charged to teach and lead, that is not where discipleship and challenge is meant solely to reside. The nature of healthy, biblical community – as painted in the New Testament – comes through the "one-anothers."

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?

Doesn’t Grace Undercut Ambition?

If it is true that Jesus paid it all, that “it is finished”, that my value, worth, security, freedom, justification, and so on is forever fixed, then why do anything?

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.

What Should We Do with Our Frozen Embryos?

Here's my response to a question I received from "A Stressed Dad.'

Kermit Gosnell and the Gospel

Yesterday I was typing the name “Kermit Gosnell,” and my phone auto-corrected the name to “gospel.” I shuddered momentarily.

Would God Interfere with Our Free Will?

Some Christians see God as a kindly but passive observer of our choices. After all, God wouldn’t ever interfere with our free will, would He? Ask Jonah and a wry smile would come over his face.

This Fragile World

As I thought about the bombings in Boston, this verse came to mind:

Confessions of a Performancist

“Justification by works” assumes that my worth is measured by my performance. It conceals a dark and ghastly fear: “If I do not perform, I will be judged unworthy.”
