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...
As I write this, I’ve just returned home from an evening walk with my family. Most nights we walk a loop that takes us up on the hillside and back to our lowland home. This time of year our evening walks point us toward the sunset for a good...
In a previous post, I listed what I have found to be the five strongest arguments against seeing Leviticus 18 and 20 as prohibiting same-sex intercourse. In this post and the next, I’ll work through each of these arguments and offer a counter argument. I’ll begin with the last argument...
What could be more basic than the gospel? It’s the entry point to the Christian life. The gospel itself is basic, foundational, and logically simple. Yet you’ll never outgrow it. You’ll never move on from it. You’ll never be done with it. If you ever decide that you are ready to...

I was just shown this article in the Wall Street Journal on the life of Steve Jobs and what he offered to the world. The article is written by Andy Crouch, author of Culture Making: Recovering Our Creative Calling (a required textbook in our Bachelor's curriculum). Not only does...
I can’t believe how many times I’ve sat on a plastic gondola as it meandered past an impossible number of singing puppets. And the song those puppets sing! So simple and repetitive—a reality that most kids love and most parents hate. It’s a Small World is my 3-year old daughter’s...
