Grace and Truth

It’s common to find people and groups separating grace and truth, but it’s quite clear that Jesus came bringing both.

No Matter What You Do, Be a Teacher

Every teacher who is truly effective became a teacher because of the influence of a highly effective teacher. You can't say that about preachers. Preachers are called by God. But we can all be teachers. We should all be teachers.

3 Reasons Pastors Don't Often Preach Politics in the Pulpit

It's not the IRS that keeps us from "speaking up" as some think we should. It's mission.

'Freedom of' or 'Freedom from'?

What is now upon us is the sense that our constitution does not simply call for the freedom of religion, but the freedom from it. In other words, that we must sanitize any and all aspects of religion from public life.
