I’m a Complementarian Man With an Egalitarian Wife; Can I Pastor?

The call to ministry is almost all-encompassing, and it engulfs an entire family in a mission many of them didn’t choose. Being a pastor’s wife doesn’t just mean being married to a pastor. It’s a way of life.

Memorial Day Remembrance

It is astounding to consider that the most powerful military force in the history of the world is comprised entirely of volunteers! These are men and women who have, by their own free choice, set aside their personal freedom and dedicated themselves to serving a higher purpose: justice and liberty. It is this attitude of self-sacrifice for the greater good (or “other-centeredness”) that is absolutely essential to the strength and longevity of any society.

Jesus is Coming. Are You Ready?

Any time would be a good time for Christ to come again.

A Pre-Tribulational Rapture?

May 21, we’re told, is the end of it all. Harold Camping tells us it’s the day when the Rapture of the church will happen. Historic Christianity, of course, stands with Jesus over anyone who claims he knows the day or the hour of Jesus’ coming (Matt. 24:3-8). But what about the larger idea here? Is there a secret, sudden Rapture? Is that what we should expect?
