It’s been some time since I’ve posted on humor. But this short video is priceless as it underscores — with a creative dose of humor — what many behavioral experts have been saying for years: Women want a guy to just listen and understand while men only want to fix the problem.     Read more

Just when we think we’ve solved Jesus, He turns the tables on us. Jesus often comes to us in unexpected ways and through unexpected means. Just think about how He came to Earth. For centuries, Israel had waited for a political Messiah. They expected Him to lead a rebellion and free Israel from Roman oppression. But how did the Messiah make His entrance into the world? He came in a way that made it easy for His own people to… Read more

Since 2004, I’ve been giving messages on a subject that I’ve rarely heard anyone speak about or write on. The subject? What is JESUS doing NOW? We all know what He did when He was on earth “in the days of His flesh.” And we all know what He plans to do when He returns. But what’s His ministry — exactly  — since His ascension until His second coming? That’s what my upcoming book JESUS NOW: Unveiling the Present-Day Ministry… Read more

Throughout the New Testament, Jesus Christ presents Himself to us as food and drink. And so do so many of the shadows of Christ contained in the Old Testament. Coca-Cola’s new “friendly twist” bottle cannot be opened by one person. It requires another who also has the bottle. In the same way, we can never partake of the fullness of the riches of Jesus Christ by ourselves, as a solo Christian. We need the other members of the body. For… Read more

Today’s podcast episode is a spoken message I delivered at a conference in Toronto, Canada. It’s the first part of a series of talks on “the first relationship” which is part of the EXQUISITE PASSION Master Class on A Deeper Journey into God’s Eternal Purpose. A women who heard this message live was in tears when I finished. She kept repeating, “It’s so simple. It’s so simple. It’s so simple.” In short, it takes some complex theological ideas (what the ancient Christians called… Read more

Rethinking Discipleship was delivered by Frank Viola at the 2015 Christian Festival in Urbana, IL. Some have dubbed it “The Stairway to Heaven Message” because of the way it’s structured. Here are testimonies from those who heard it live. “This message is one of the high points of Frank’s speaking ministry. An escalating, epic, spiritual odyssey which increases in tempo until it’s brilliant, stunning end. Delivered at the peak of Viola’s creative powers. An incredible look at discipleship, tremendously powerful.”… Read more

Several years ago, a celebrity Christian author wrote an article on why he doesn’t attend church anymore. It created a firestorm all throughout the Christian blogosphere. Really? Haven’t we gotten past this yet? Let me explain. Two ludicrous things were at work. 1. Pastors were pushing-back on the celebrity author, reprimanding him with words like, “you can’t follow Jesus and reject the church.” While those exact words are true–and I’ve said essentially the same thing many times in my work–these… Read more
