Afraid to Say “God” in Public: The Power of Ideas

There is no doubt Edward Bulwer-Lytton was right when he coined the phrase for his 1839 play The Conspiracy, “The pen is mightier than the sword.” Ideas take root in the minds of people and bear real consequences

Luther On Law

Ok, get ready to do some real thinking here. What follows is heavy theological lifting. I asked my friend Jono Linebaugh to weigh in on the recent discussion about Law and Gospel.

Teach Me How to Pray (II)

Obviously the most important part of a prayer life is just praying—I’m sure it’s very easy to get hung up on questions of procedure while forgetting to actually just pray—but I am also very eager to learn how other people collect and organize all of the things they may need to pray for...

The Gospel and Cruciform Fidelity

Recently, broadcaster Pat Robertson said a man should divorce his wife with Alzheimer’s in order to marry another woman. This is more than cruelty. This is a repudiation of the gospel.

You're Right!

If it were confirmed to you that everything you believe and preach from the Word of God was true, right, and absolute, what would you do?

When Tragedy Makes You Doubt God
