How Should a Pastor Approach Pre-marital Counseling?

In light of the tendency to oversimply, or bog down your young engaged couple with too much to do, here are 3 areas I find very helpful and thorough, whether you have a few weeks or as “many weeks as needed” before the big day.

Religion, Politics...and a Christian Mind

Just hearing the two words, “religion” and “politics,” and the blood pressure rises, doesn’t it?

Research points to a “growing appetite” for such things as church-endorsed candidates and other church-state intersections.

Whatever Became of Church? (Part One)

With jaw-dropping vigor, ignorance, and at times unblushing gall, increasing sectors of the evangelical world are abandoning two thousand years of ecclesiology; as if the church was some malleable human construct that can be shaped, altered, redefined or even disposed of as desired.

Whatever Became of Church? (Part Two)

The word “parachurch” is built off of two words: “para,” which means “alongside of” and, of course, the word “church.” As conceived, the parachurch is meant to serve “alongside” the church - not in place of the church or in competition with the church.

What’s Wrong with Al Mohler’s Critique of Hillsong?

How Does a Pastor "Pick His Battles"?

Pastors who walk into existing churches are quickly burdened by needed changes to improve the church. Where the challenge is for most of us is when and how those changes need to be brought.

The People Meck Needs

Faith Hacking: Getting Better at Meditation

If you are like me, you find meditation a difficult practice. You like the idea of it, but find the reality difficult to carry out. In my mind, “meditation” seems like an ethereal term, one that contains a good idea but without any clear structure. I struggle with it.

Victoria Osteen Takes Worship of God to New Low: It’s All about You

One wonders how Christians today whose lives are marked by deep suffering, tragedy, or persecution for their faith could apply Victoria Osteen’s view of God.
