Dr. Ray Ortlund Jr., of "The Gospel Coalition," responds to my video of Jesus explaining why he allows evil to exist.
It is one thing to try and convince people wanting to fly from Charlotte to Atlanta to consider using Delta’s services over US Airways. It is another thing altogether to get someone on board who has no desire to fly.
God wants to know one thing, “Do you have faith that the blood of Jesus can wash away all your sins?”
The cross smelled good to God. He was well-pleased by the sacrifice of his Son.

It’s that annoying, yet catchy, song that millions have loved to hate over recent weeks. But one church saw beyond Rebecca Black’s “Friday" and all the way to Easter Sunday.
Jackie Robinson made his major league debut at first base for the Brooklyn Dodgers on this date in 1947. It was a historic and significant day for baseball but maybe more so for our country. You can argue that the American civil rights movement was truly ignited when Robinson came to bat in Dodger Blue.
Jesus didn’t pay attention to a person’s reputation or standing in the community.
If the original American Dream was "opportunity" (rags-to-riches), which then morphed into "perfection," it seems to have now become "entitlement."
You cannot be neutral about Jesus. He will save you or he will crush you, and there is no third choice.
It was just a matter of time until someone parodied Rebecca Black's viral video sensation,"Friday." And now Community Christian Church in Naperville, IL, has produced "Sunday."

Do you know that Jesus is the Lord of glory? If so, you know it because God has revealed it to you by his Spirit.

I imagine the folks over at Planned Parenthood are desperately trying to figure how they can best spin the latest results from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), released last month.
In a media-driven era, it is easy for us to think of our lives as a series of separate episodes, each compartmentalized from the other. But this isn’t unique to us. The Christian story tells us that, from the very beginning, the curse of sin holds people in an illusion that actions don’t have consequences precisely because those consequences aren’t immediate.
There is a seemingly inconsequential ripple in the current of pop culture: the new democratization of media, giving anyone and everyone access to the mass market.
The nations will never live in peace until they know Jesus.
