If Christian music is not the same thing as music made by Christians, then what is it? I’d say the next most obvious candidate for a definition of Christian music is this: music with Christian subject matter. So if the song is about Jesus, salvation, faith, love, etc., then...
Everything comes with a warning these days. Open ditches might cause injuries and hot coffee is liable to burn you—good thing they’re warning us! Commercials for prescription drugs (which should make us wonder why these companies are advertising to us instead of our doctors) are almost comical in the...
As most of you probably know, Phil Robertson of the uber popular reality TV program “Duck Dynasty” made some news-stirring comments yesterday about homosexuality. To quote the most cited comment, Robertson said: “It seems to me, a vagina—as a man—would be more desirable than a man's anus. That's just me....
One thing we try to do at Eternity Bible College is really attempt to be known by what we stand for rather than what we are standing against. Now inevitably there will be times where by standing for something we are inherently in opposition to something else but we...
We used to think that technology would solve all of our problems. During a recent trip to Disneyland I got to thinking about how cool “Tomorrowland” must have been back in its day. It’s funny to think that when Disneyland opened in 1955, this is what they thought the...
As I was stepping out of the back room onto the stage to lead the congregation in worship, my buddy said to me, “Don’t freak out, but Pamela Anderson is sitting in the front row.” I said what any worship leader would have said: “Yeah, right.” I grabbed my guitar...

If that title got you interested, you’re either under six years of age (in which case you probably can’t read) or you’re a young parent. If you don’t fit either description and are reading anyhow, keep going! There are spiritual lessons to be gleaned from unlikely sources. My oldest daughter...
I recently came across an incredible poem by Edwin Muir called “The Transfiguration,” first published in 1949. Muir describes a moment in which the earth was transfigured before his eyes, and he saw everything as it was intended to be. The following are a couple of excerpts from the...
The Olympics are indisputably amazing. Some of you have blocked off huge amounts of time so as to miss as little as possible. Others, like myself, hadn’t planned on watching much, but couldn’t stop watching. (We tried to turn off the TV when men’s gymnastics came on, but couldn’t...
