As my wife browsed the female half of J. Crew, I stood by the stroller on the male half and tried to distract my daughters from the boredom of shopping (I still have a few financially stable years before they start believing that shopping is fun). When a salesman asked...
The Bible is filled with women who were prostitutes, adulteresses, or downright sexually promiscuous. It’s striking, however, that a large majority of them are depicted as objects of grace rather than judgment. As much as the Bible condemns fornication, it also offers the solution to it: grace. That relentless, unconditional,...
The Old Testament is all about grace. It contains some laws and talks about judgment. But at the end of the day, the whole thing is held together by grace. If you pull grace out, like tugging on a loose thread from a sweater, the whole garment will become...
Whose kingdom are you building? It may sound like a strange question, but the answer is incredibly important. We spend our lives building up our own kingdoms. We work to earn a living, but we also work to gain respect, to move up the social and material ladder, to gain...

In fact, crucifixion was the result of many years of ingenuity. Barbaric cultures teamed together to invent the most painful, shameful,...
Mary Magdalene is one of the most well-known and yet misunderstood women in the Bible. She’s commonly portrayed in Christian art as a forgiven prostitute, or, in an extreme case, she’s thought to be Jesus’ wife—the “holy grail”—according to Dan Brown’s DaVinci Code. Neither of these depictions bears a...
Why do a series of blog posts on sin? So I can talk about the end of the story! Think about it. We spend every moment of our lives in a cursed world. The effects of sin are everywhere, from the pain that haunts us to the pollution in...
At the request of one of our graduates, we are going to begin featuring a (not necessarily monthly) Book of the Month. Kelsey (the graduate) mentioned that she gained so much through her studies at Eternity, but now that she has graduated—and therefore is not being forced to read...
