Rediscovering Prayer When Your Prayer Life is Dead

Praying with a rosary

Last week I wrote two posts on recovering from spiritual burnout and talked about some of my own struggles I had in this area recently. We covered both reasons why so many are feeling burned out right now, and also some things to take a break from in order to prevent burnout. However, the one really [Read More...]

All Your Objections to Christian Nonviolence Finally Answered (Video Blog)

Crown of thorns and bible on old wooden background

In the context of discussing the issue of Christian Nonviolence (perhaps the most common issue I discuss here) a lot of objections come up– objections I appreciate, because I once had them myself when I was first discovering what Jesus actually taught. As we’ve journeyed together, I’ve found myself answering many of the same objections [Read More...]

Boycott A Florist And You’ll Go To Hell (They Just Took The Persecution Complex Up A Notch)

close uo of hand of a prisoner

I’ve previously written at great length on the Christian persecution complex here in the United States and how it’s both unattractive and offensive to Christians around the world who actually are persecuted for their faith. As Christians begin to lose the privilege they’ve previously held in society, many are engaging in a case of mistaken identity and [Read More...]

If America Became a Christian Nation (They Probably Wouldn’t Like What it Looked Like)

Flagge der USA mit Unabhängigkeitserklärung und Bibel

With political season kicking off again, so is the season where folks begin to use the term “Christian nation.” Some claim we were one, some claim we are one, and some say we need to become one. Yet, each time I hear that phrase I have an inner Princess Bride moment where I say to [Read More...]

We’re Not Actually Socialists, Even Though Everyone Seems To Think We Are

Great China-01

“Socialist.” It’s the new word that’s been thrown around these last few years as a way of criticizing someone without actually talking about the issue at hand- typical with name calling. Not a week seems to go by without this word being used to describe me, and I would venture to guess that if you sit [Read More...]

What I Wish We Would Pray On The National Day of Prayer

Crossed hands with USA flag

Today is the National Day of Prayer and all across the country, churches will host events catered toward praying that God would bless our country. Unfortunately, I believe praying “God Bless America” is putting the cart before the horse; long before we have the audacity of asking for God’s blessing, we as a nation should enter [Read More...]

5 Things You Need To Take A Break From To Avoid Spiritual Burnout

pensando en el futuro

Yesterday on the blog I wrote about how I had spent much of this winter suffering from spiritual and emotional burnout, and that I had a hunch I wasn’t alone. Judging from your comments and emails, it turns out my instinct was correct- a lot of Christians are feeling burned out these days. As part of [Read More...]

5 Reasons Why So Many Christians Are Feeling Burned Out Right Now

Burned cross

I’ll be honest- I’ve really been struggling internally for a few months. It’s not something I’ve discussed publicly, but has been a frequent topic of conversation in my home and with some close friends/peers. I think a big part of it was simply winter– it felt brutally long and dark for us up in these parts, [Read More...]

Jesus Wasn’t Concerned With “Taking The Country Back” And Neither Should We

P

It’s that time again… and happens every four years. With each new election cycle there is one predicable rallying cry that emits from the political stage: “it’s time to take our country back.”  Quite often I hear these words uttered by fellow Christians, seemingly petrified that their individual worlds will collapse if their particular party [Read More...]
