Every Christian college is familiar with the joke: “Ring by Spring or your money back!” But it’s probably more true than it is funny (the funny part is the thought that you could get your money back). Christian college students like finding their future spouses at Christian colleges. Since I...
We book ourselves too tight. Ask anyone how they’re doing and they’ll probably say one of two things: “Good, but busy” or just “Busy.” The only thing that keeps our frequent references to the fast pace of our modern lifestyle from being a tired cliché is the undeniable truth...
Sometimes when I go through my weekly ritual of mowing my lawn, I wonder, “How many times have I walked over this exact spot?” I step on virtually every square inch of my lawn every single week. I push the mower over every blade of grass, cutting them to...

Our local newspaper recently ran a cartoon featuring a turkey that had been trampled to death by hooves. One bystander said to another, “It looks like Thanksgiving got run over by a reindeer.” It seems like every year the Christmas decorations and merchandise in stores and coffee shops come out...
Josh Grauman spent the last two blogs critiquing my previous three blogs on the future temple, and I must say that Josh is clearly wrong. He needs to retake Hermeneutics 101 because he obviously didn’t pass it the first time. He should also sit in on an Ezekiel class...
