As stated in a previous post, there is much that the church can learn from the Occupy Wall       Street movement. In addition to seeing how incredibly diverse groups can find unity around a common cause; the church can also learn a lot about OWS regarding hope. People around the...
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...
I’m not a politician, nor an economist. I’m the last one who could wax eloquent about our economic crisis, and I have no clue how to get out of it or when we will get back on our feet—if ever. But from what I’ve been told, America has faced...
Oct 18th saw the passing of the one month mark of the Occupy Wall St.  movement.   30 days, 82 countries, 1500 cities and thousands upon thousands of people have made one thing abundantly clear:  at the very least, people are not satisfied with the status quo. Prior to offering...

Like many who have encountered Schaeffer’s writings, I have been deeply impacted by Schaeffer’s approach to life and theology. Truth be told, I...
Over the years (the past two weeks included) I have had the opportunity to interact with many different cultures in many places around the world.   In early 2006 I started keeping a list of all of the things that transcend culture I thought I might share parts of that...
