A. W. Tozer famously said, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us.” John Frame widens that thought to extend to literally everything: “The most important fact about anything in the world is its relationship to God's lordship.” Frame intends...
Jesus is the light of the world. As profound as that statement is, it gets crazier. Because this is a title that Jesus claims for himself, and then also bestows upon us. In his Sermon on the Mount, Jesus says: “You are the light of the world. A city set on...
In many American churches, consumerism is being used as a vehicle for the gospel.

Many people hear the gospel through this type of church....
The evangelical world has flown into turbulent skies over the last few months. From Phil Robertson to bakeries in Arizona, and more recently the World Vision debacle.
