My trip from Nepal to Zambia felt like a time warp. You can go ahead and erase all those images in your mind from UNICEF commercials and BrAngelina adoption trips. They may reflect other parts of Africa, but they don’t reflect much of life in Lusaka, the capital of...
Here at Eternity Bible College we believe in the local church. We believe the church is the Bride of Christ, the living organism that God instituted in Acts 2 to be His primary vehicle to accomplish the Great Commission. We recognize that we as a Bible College are NOT...
Every winter at Eternity Bible College, we bring in a guest professor to teach a class within their expertise. This “Winterim,” as it’s been called, is close to my heart since I was Eternity’s first official Winterim teacher. When I was teaching at Cedarville University (Ohio), I flew out...
I’ll never forget hearing John Piper talk about growing old to the glory of God, in several sermons years ago. Maybe you’ve heard them too. In the middle of one particular sermon about missions, Piper goes off in his characteristic bluntness on how “old people” should do missions instead...

Yesterday I said that everything in this world is important because of the kingdom of God. If God’s righteous reign is to spread into every aspect of this world, then we need to take everything seriously. This is God’s world, and we should love every inch of it and...
Yesterday I wrote about what it means to hear the voice of God and tried to navigate some of the subjectivity of how you know what God is calling you to do. Today I want to continue in that vein. Many Christians firmly believe that they have received a God-giving...
When Francis Schaeffer looked at our modern society, he saw a lot of apathy. He would trace the ebb and flow of Western Civilization, highlighting achievements, revolutions, and the longings of mankind. Many idealists, revolutionaries, and power-hungry people have changed the course of history—some for better, some for worse....
