“God’s Own Fool,” by Michael Card

In today’s episode of “The Cross and the Jukebox” I talk with my favorite singer-songwriter, Michael Card, about his song, “God’s Own Fool.” It’s a song that’s changed me, and is constantly changing me; it’s a song that helped crucify my rationalism.

The End Of Control Is The Beginning Of Freedom

Parents and preachers have such a hard time with grace–trust me, I know. I’m both a parent and a preacher). We understand conditions. Conditionality makes sense. Unconditionality on the other hand is incomprehensible to us.

Gospel or Justice, Which?

Some evangelicals talk as though personal evangelism and public justice are contradictory concerns, or, at least, that one is part of the mission of the church and the other isn’t. I think otherwise.

"No, You're Daddy!"

You will be the only dad your kid will ever know. What kind of dad will you be?

Do We Need an Evangelical President?

It's nice to have one of "our guys" in the Oval Office, but it doesn't validate our faith.

Pat Robertson Responds

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about Robertson’s comments on divorce and Alzheimer’s. More problematic, though, was Robertson’s flippant response to the abhorrent theology behind the whole issue...

A Veteran Minister's Regrets (About His Sermons)

I'm a veteran. A veteran minister. I received the call to preach in April of 1961, which means we have recently passed the half-century mark for that anniversary. I began pastoring in November of 1962, and was ordained on December 2. I served 6 churches as pastor for 39 years and one as a staff minister for 3. Does this qualify me as a veteran?
