Gospel Tweets

I’m constantly trying to come up with different, concise, memorable ways to share God’s good news and Twitter challenges me to do this. It’s also a great way for me to “journal” what God’s teaching me about the gospel. (Read more)

The Normalization of Pride

When so many leaders are proud, it becomes very difficult for the Spirit-convicted psyche to discern, “Am I prideful, or am I a leader?”

Arrogant Inclusivism

The truly narrow-minded, prejudiced Christian looks at a Buddhist or a Hindu and stays quiet about Jesus. Their silence says this: Jesus isn’t for you.

How To Answer The Accuser

"If I were to trust in my own good deeds, or despair because I have done no good deeds, Christ would profit me neither way." ~ Martin Luther

Would that the Church Be Known for This!

A quote from The Apology of Aristides to Emperor Hadrian in 125 A.D. reveals a Christianity robustly distinct from the world.

“Cup of Loneliness” by George Jones
