Revolutionize Your Spiritual Life

The church is not immune to movements, trends, programs, and people latching on to the latest study that’s supposed to transform our lives. Each of these movements or trends is supposed to be that thing we’ve been missing; that thing that will take us over the top spiritually speaking.

Are We Fragrant or Fetid

Over the years one question has haunted me more than any other: “Why is there not a more positive, observable difference between Christians and their non-believing neighbors?”

Saved by Grace?

"God wants one thing, and only one thing, from us. He wants us to believe in him. He wants us to believe that out of love, through his bodily sacrifice, he paid the eternal price for the sins of each and every one of us. Believing that is what gets us saved; that is what triggers to life the life of Christ within us."

Dungeons and Dragons and Debating Calvinism

Remember those Dungeons and Dragons people back in junior high school? Well, they grew up, got saved, and are now debating Calvinism, on both sides.

It’s Okay To Not Be Okay

When you understand that your significance, security, and identity are all anchored in Christ, you don’t have to win—you’re free to lose. And nothing in this broken world can beat a person who isn’t afraid to lose! You’ll be free to say crazy, risky, counterintuitive stuff like, “To live is Christ and to die is gain”!

Teach Me How to Pray

While I feel the desire to pray and I often long to pray, I find it difficult. So, I have turned to a few pastors I know to ask them how they manage the task of prayer. In the weeks to come I plan to share some of their advice in the hope that you will find it helpful. Here's the first installment from a dear friend and pastor here in Toronto, Tim Kerr...

Why Christians Don’t Want Government Defining Marriage

The issue of marriage with particular reference to a constitutional amendment banning homosexual marriage is dangerous for conservative Christians who disagree with the majority who are in favor of such an amendment. It’s dangerous in that one who is not in favor of banning homosexual marriage is considered to be in favor of homosexual marriage, liberal, and unbiblical, none of which is the case . . .

What Do All Christians Believe?

A young woman asks, "What’s the single most important thing I would have to believe in order to officially qualify as a Christian?"

All Utopia, All the Time

“Utopia Central,” I said, answering my phone when my boss called me one day earlier this week. And I wasn’t kidding either.

Who’s Afraid of a Woman President?

In light of Michele Bachmann’s candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination, some are wondering how consistent it is for Christians to elect a woman to national office when they wouldn’t vote for her to serve as pastor of a local church. The question is a good one, and is more complicated than it first appears, to both sides.

When You've Been Fired

I talked with a man who was fired from his job in a public and painful way. This is what he said he learned from it.

Going Public: Your Child Can Thrive in Public School

There was a time when homeschooling was a very lonely place to be. Perhaps in some contexts it still is. But it seems that homeschooling has entered the mainstream and for many families is now the default option. Speaking from experience, as the father of 3 children who all attend local public schools, I can attest that public schooling can be a very lonely place as well… (Read more)

Getting Busy While You Wait

Like Joseph reached out to others while he waited in prison, perhaps there is someone who will be blessed by God through you.

A Most Curious Hero

One of the more telling cultural shifts of the last seventy-five years has been what some have called the “celebrification” of culture.
