I love to listen to the Freakonomics podcast as Steven Duber uses compelling economics to help shed a light on many topics. His July 19th episode featured a fascinating interview with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. As you might know, Facebook is under a great deal of scrutiny. Conservatives have felt that the algorithms have increasingly silenced their voices, even forcing Congressional hearings about the matter. And recently, the company is starting to crack down on “Fake News.” The problem? Who… Read more

Think about all the people who have been shouted down for having an unpopular thought. This addiction to outrage is sweeping our country, and really, it comes down to the elimination of free speech, free thought. And we should all stand for liberty — because we might be next. Read more

It’s not always easy. It’s not always pretty. But I’ll choose freedom any day. It’s something that God has put in the heart of every man and woman and we all yearn for it. That’s what we all are fighting for. Read more

Yes there is grief. Yes there is sadness. Yes there is inequity, and hatred, and persecution and pain, and unfaithfulness. But we are called to something greater. Shock the world with these thoughts. Read more

Did you every have shag carpeting, paneled walls, and floral wallpaper? Those were hot fashion trends then. So what makes us think that our trends in fashion and decorating will last into the next century, let alone the next decade. And while we are at it, what about our “fashionable” thinking and progressive ideas? Read more

There’s plenty of rancor in America today. Left vs. right. Extremes vs.  moderates. So treacherous are the positions and the language, some have predicted a coming Civil War – not between states, but between dogmas. This war won’t be about race or economics or states’ rights. It will be about ideology and power. And it seems that there is no innocent side in this. Conservatives, liberals and socialists all have the hair on the back of their neck up, ready to fight. Thank goodness some have realized the downward spiral and are calling for a stop. Read more

Hear this please. Smoking pot won’t send you to hell. But you are missing out on so much more. Jesus said this, “The thief comes to steal, and kill and destroy. But I have come that you may have life have it abundantly.” So there’s the choice. And with great love, it’s offered freely to you. Read more

I understand the need to find God’s will. But too many of us are sitting back and wasting our lives waiting. Take what you know what to do and do it. The rest will work itself out. Read more

I always get just a little uncomfortable when a politician uses a Bible verse to justify a policy position. The Bible is truth, but to take it and try to wrap political policy around it should be done carefully, very carefully. Both sides do it — and both sides should stop it. Read more

Identity politics is the game people play to pander to classes of people. But for the Christian, we have but one identity. And we better stick to it. When we are tempted to be categorized, we need to turn our backs on the modern game of choosing sides. And when the culture presses because we won’t engage, we’ll double down. “I’m with Him.” That’s our identity. That’s all we’ll ever need. Read more
