Rock Climbing and Trusting God

Who’s got your back? Or rather, who’s got your “belay on”? Wherever you are putting your trust in life will tell you a lot.

Is Mormonism a Cult, and Does It Matter in 2012?

The answer is both “yes” and “no,” and understanding why is an important discussion.

Don't Adopt!

Children shatter your life-plan. Adoption certainly does. It’s worth it.

A Primer On Islam: Groups, Sects and Shari'a (Lesson 2 of 6)

The second lesson of Pastor Bob's amazing six-part class on Islam.

“God’s Own Fool,” by Michael Card

In today’s episode of “The Cross and the Jukebox” I talk with my favorite singer-songwriter, Michael Card, about his song, “God’s Own Fool.” It’s a song that’s changed me, and is constantly changing me; it’s a song that helped crucify my rationalism.

The End Of Control Is The Beginning Of Freedom

Parents and preachers have such a hard time with grace–trust me, I know. I’m both a parent and a preacher). We understand conditions. Conditionality makes sense. Unconditionality on the other hand is incomprehensible to us.

Why I Do What I Do

I told a story to our church this past weekend as part of the ending of a series on parenting. The more I’ve reflected on it, it’s about why I do what I do.

The Seeds of the Kingdom

Imagine burying a piece of scrap metal and returning six months later to find an automobile assembly plant making its own parts, repairing its own equipment, turning out cars, and spawning other factories, all without human assistance. What happens with a seed is no less astounding.

The Foundation of Mortification

Don’t run away from this blog post just because I’m quoting a Puritan. Yes, Puritans are scary with all their big words and frilly collars, but some of them had remarkable insights into God’s Word and into human hearts. Read on to see an example of that.

Gospel or Justice, Which?

Some evangelicals talk as though personal evangelism and public justice are contradictory concerns, or, at least, that one is part of the mission of the church and the other isn’t. I think otherwise.

A Primer On Islam: The Basics (Lesson 1 of 6)

I asked a Christian pastor friend of mine who is also an Islamic scholar to help me understand Islam. Talk about an awesome response.

The Speaking Circuit

I can understand why and how people could give up leading the local church in favor of the speaking circuit. I began to think about this as Rob Bell announced his resignation from Mars Hill just as I set out for 6 days of speaking engagements at a conference, a college and a church.

Noah on Course for the Big Screen

It’s a Bible story that still holds water, as director Darren Aronofsky is slated to direct the upcoming feature film Noah.

Should the Government Tell You What You Can’t Eat?

I’m not sure I want my wife telling me what I can’t eat, let alone the government (though I do try to listen to my wife). Stories about government banning certain food items, particularly those with high fat content, are increasing.
