Many of our readers are already familiar with The Silo Project. Essentially, we’ve taken material from our college classrooms and are offering it to normal people (i.e., non-scholars, non-theology-nerds) in an attractive, affordable, self-paced format. You can learn about worldview or Old Testament or counseling or whatever at your...
Several years ago, an 80 something year old man walked into one of our classrooms. We often have older "students" sit in on our classes, members of various churches who want to continue growing in their knowledge of the Bible and the world. But it quickly became clear that...
The evangelical world has flown into turbulent skies over the last few months. From Phil Robertson to bakeries in Arizona, and more recently the World Vision debacle. Evangelicals are facing a potential fork in the road in how they think through homosexuality. Then there’s the never dying debates about...
Over the last 48 hours, our government has released several warnings about increasing terrorist activity against the United States. Several U.S. embassies have been closed and panic is beginning to swell across America. But I am not panicked. I am not nervous, scared, or worried that my freedom is under...
In this post, I'm going to argue that the Church ought to be (1) a place to feel at home and (2) a place to feel like a foreigner or a pilgrim. God has so constructed the Church, created as it is through the building material of the gospel, that...

When used theologically, the word “call/calling” is almost exclusively used in terms of election unto salvation, not to authenticate a spiritual nudge we may have toward a particular ministry...
Last week, Eternity Bible College hosted its annual Winterim course, which always features distinguished guest professors teaching on a issue that is pertinent to the life and health of the church. This year, we were honored to have Dr. Joel Willitts from Northpark University teaching on the Kingdom of...
In honor of the launch of our Fall semester, I’m going to explore an interesting phenomenon: plagiarism. Few will be surprised to learn the truth. Christian students plagiarize, whether they attend public or private colleges, secular or Christian universities. I find the psychology behind the urge to cheat fascinating, but...
As Christians, we are to be “in the world but not of it.” But what does that mean exactly? It can actually be a pretty confusing concept if we don’t give it some careful thought. Does being “in the world” mean that we hang out at bars and watch...
The rich young man in Mark 10 approached Jesus with the most important question imaginable: What must I do to inherit eternal life? With so many in our modern world caught up in fleeting pleasures and superficial pursuits, this man’s question is refreshing. This guy knows what’s important in...
