10 Ways To Love Yourself Better (So That You’ll Be Able To Love Others Better)

The other day I wrote a post about why the second greatest commandment presupposes we love ourselves, in addition to loving others. I have been pondering tangible ways to take this from the theoretical to the practical, and thus have compiled 10 suggestions as to how we can better love ourselves, so that we can [Read More…]

You Can’t Be Christian If You’re Not Caring For The Poor

People often falsely assume that the word Christian has a clear, singular, meaning but that’s not necessarily true. There’s “Christian,” which refers to a particular religion of over 41,000 different denominations or sects who disagree on what Christian means. Then there’s “Christian” which can refer to a nationalistic religion prevalent in America. And then there’s [Read More…]

40 Life Lessons I Learned Before My 40th Birthday

It’s April 26, 2016, which means one thing: I turn 40 years old today! And, I’ve gotta admit: I did some living in my first 40. I’ve lived around the world, traveled to as many countries as years I’ve been alive, earned six college degrees, wrote a few books, raised me some kids, and between [Read More…]

Loving Yourself: The Biblical Command We Tend To Forget

Love yourself. It sounds kinda selfish and self-centered on the surface, I know. And if it were, it would surely be a most unattractive trait. I believe that Christianity is a religion about love– most notably, loving God and loving our neighbors. However, I think we’re too quick to forget to extend the same to [Read More…]

The Disgusting Hypocrisy of the Anti-Trans Bathroom Movement

So listen– I’ve been thinking about this whole movement to make peeing while trans illegal, and I have a few thoughts. The basic premise is this: Individuals who are transgender need to use the public restroom that corresponds to their actual gender (not their sex, which is different). They need to do this for their [Read More…]

Things I’d Do Differently, If I Could Do Seminary Over Again

I have finished the race. After spending 8 years in seminary between Gordon-Conwell and Fuller Theological Seminary, last Friday I successfully defended my dissertation in Pasadena. Coming back in the room after the committee deliberated, and then being called “Dr. Corey” for the first time, was an emotional experience for me. It was a great [Read More…]

Please Stop Blaming Your Obnoxious Behavior On Jesus

When Jesus died on the cross, I believe he served as the ultimate scapegoat– exposing the evil within us by allowing us to pin it all on him. While being the scapegoat who shines a light on our own darkness was supposed to be a one-time-deal, 2000 years later I believe we’re still pinning a good [Read More…]

I used to consider myself a person of at least average intelligence, but I’ve been trying to wrap my head around the idea of Christians supporting Donald Trump, and I just can’t do it. I tried, but I have failed miserably. Instead, I’ve just found myself left with questions. So, here are 5 questions I [Read More…]

10 Reasons Jesus Would Never Win The American Evangelical Vote

It’s political season, have you noticed? (Seriously, kill me now.) As part of that political season, pundits like to crack numbers, explore potential paths to victory, and discuss voter blocks. One of those voter blocks is yuge– in fact, it’s hard to win the presidency without it: The Evangelical vote. I know this block well– [Read More…]

Old Testament Law: The Accuser Christ Defeated on the Cross

This month we’ve been talking all things atonement as we prepare for Holy Week to arrive. So far we’ve deconstructed the Penal Substitution theory of the atonement on various grounds, and I have offered the suggestion that perhaps the Devil is the missing link (the agent of causation) within many atonement theories. Finally, I have suggested [Read More…]
