Are You Smarter Than Anthony Weiner?

What we need is not intelligence, but wisdom. Wisdom includes seeing where the way I want to go will lead.

Adoption, Identity, and Kung-Fu Panda

We all face them, but for children who’ve been adopted, there’s often a special sense of helplessness in the face of the "who am I?" and "why?" questions.

My Foolproof Method for Avoiding Low Self-Esteem

I’ve always sort of instinctively rejected the premise that anyone is inherently better than anyone else. And if no one’s better than anyone else, then no one’s worse than anyone else. And that includes me.

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.

"God Gave Me the Gift of Desperation"

The gift of desperation means that God has so emptied you that you have nothing left but God.

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.

Too Good To Be True

Forgiveness full and free is the hardest thing for us to believe as Christians. We think it’s a mark of spiritual maturity to hang onto our guilt and shame.

A 19th-Century Response to Rob Bell and Love Wins

The rejection of the doctrine of Endless Punishment cuts the ground from under the gospel.

Have I Committed the Unpardonable Sin?

If you care enough to ask the question, the answer is no.

We Are Seasoned Do-It-Yourselfers

When will we learn that Jesus is not glorified by our “doing” things for him, but that He is glorified by our resting in, and receiving, what he’s done for us?

It’s surprising how few open, transparent and practical discussions there are about racial matters in the local church.

Disconnected from Your Calling

When we speak of calling, most people think of some loftier spiritual work rather than business, construction, or retail. Under this paradigm, the essential activity that consumes 98 percent of Christians’ time and energy is viewed as being of little or no spiritual value.

Making Sense of Natural Disasters

Why, in a world created by an all-powerful, all-good God, are natural disasters, which claim hundreds to hundreds of thousands of lives, permitted to exist? Is God a monster or merely a klutz?

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?
