God Loves Protestors Too

Are you a pastor? Have you got a plan for what to do if your church ever attracts a protest?  Think that it would never happen to you? Think again, because in the West we are living in a society that increasingly hates Christians.  Many see us as little different to the Taliban.  If you are drafting an action plan for what your response to being picketted would be, you would do well to take a note from the church Ed Stetzer has been an interim pastor of: One of our staff members recruited … [Read more...]

Ed Stetzer Interviews Terry Virgo of Newfrontiers

Terry Virgo founded Newfrontiers back in the mid 1970s. He was church planting before it was cool. He formed a missional network before the phrase was coined.

The Effects of Pornography – EdStetzer.com

I do love it when a scientific study shows us what we all thought likely to be the case.  When will society take note that this massive market is degrading to women and men alike? # Pornography is addictive, and neuroscientists are beginning to map the biological substrate of this addiction. # Users tend to become desensitized to the type of pornorgraphy they use, become bored with it, and then seek more perverse forms of pornography. # Married men who are involved in pornography feel less … [Read more...]

Ed Stetzer on Modern Day "apostles"

Ed Stetzer has a great post discussing the concept of apostolic work today. He has some great links many of which would on first glance describe a view very similar to that which I hold.

I have a lot more posts on apostles today here on my blog. … [Read more...]
