May our Gospel Have Hands

There are over 12.3 million adults and children in forcedlabor, bonded labor, and commercial sexual servitude at any given time. Of these victims, the ILO estimates that atleast 1.39 million are victims of commercial sexual servitude. -The Advocates for Human Rights (mncasa.org) I must admit. I have not always been one to care about social justice. Honestly. I thought that is what liberal Christians did instead of preaching the Gospel to save souls from Hell. But over the last year, and even … [Read more...]

Prayer: Don’t Do It, Be It

I've been reflecting on prayer. Mainly because over the past year, the way my prayer life has looked has changed significantly. I used to be someone who prayed in the traditional understanding- speaking to God on behalf of myself and others for his praise and glory- all of the time. Literally, I would walk around praying.

Run to God, Not the Bible

For Evangelicals, if you want to know what God has to say on any given topic or in any situation, you turn to the Bible. The Bible is the centerpiece of Protestant spiritual life- it is not only our highest authority, but for many, it is our only sacrament, the only place that Jesus Christ is revealed and communicates his grace to us. The Bible, in short, is the means, method, and message of most Protestant’s faith.But what happens when the Bible stops working?I recently experienced a “ … [Read more...]

EXCLUSIVE: N.T. Wright Speaks About His New Book!

revconn

N.T. Wright is the worlds foremost New Testament Scholar today. Over the past two decades, he has been dominating evangelical Biblical scholarship and New Testament Theology, as well as stirring quite a few pots among the American fundamentalist and reformed crowd. But besides his prolific amount of scholarly work, what has made N.T. Wright such a powerful influence on many evangelicals is that he is not afraid to engage with scripture in light of modern culture and allow the Bible to speak into … [Read more...]
