A couple weeks ago, I shared about my mother's battle with cancer here. Now that she's with Jesus, I thought I would share some more scattered reflections --this time about my dad.  When I grow up, I want to be like my dad... I should say; if I ever grow up,...
It was 1980 something when I got into a physical altercation at school with Tyrone Minor. Despite his last name, there was nothing minor about Tyrone. He was twice my size and oh so much tougher. On that dreadful morning, I walked into homeroom and gave Tyrone a friendly...
Bible College students want to change the world. Or at least their church. And they want to do so immediately. At least, that’s how many of my students roll. I completely understand the compulsion to change things overnight. I’ve been there. You read the Bible, you read books on theology...
Mark Driscoll recently argued that “the Prince of Peace is not a pacifist” and that “those who want to portray Jesus as a pansy or a pacifist are prone to be very selective in the parts of the Bible they quote.” Driscoll argues his case ironically—some would say comically—by...

With Thanksgiving now less than a week away, I think it’s an appropriate time for a confession: I have a worldview of want. By worldview I mean my perspective. The way I interpret the world around me and make sense of things. What God has exposed recently, is that my...
This post is a response to one of the suggestions we’ve received on the blog. Here’s the question: “How does a Christian respond to the popular YOLO (you only live once) philosophy? Do you only live once? How many times do you live, if not? One? Three? I've heard some...
Discipleship is an essential function of the church. It's the mission that Jesus left us with when He raised from the dead and ascended to the Father: "Go into all the world and make disciples." As disciples of Jesus, an important part of our job description is being disciple-makers. But...
I doubt I’ll surprise anyone by saying that Christians are bad at dating. We all feel it in our bones and see it at every church function. Christians tend to be awkward when interacting with members of the opposite sex. Much of this is simply a human problem and...
