UPDATE: I was just pointed to Daniel Darling’s Twitter page, which posted the following from the ERLC: We made a mistake on our @ERLC website yesterday. I’d like to explain how it happened and apologize: https://t.co/bQoLAyKaOg pic.twitter.com/bWGG00ntpV — Daniel Darling (@dandarling) August 2, 2018   I am glad to see it was a mistake, and for the explanation given to clarify how it happened. I have left the original post up, namely, because it is still pertinent to addressing the… Read more

Recently, I was given the opportunity to ask A.K. Alexander of Accelerate Books a few questions. I first heard of Accelerate Books after some friends were talking about it on Facebook; I was immediately interested. As a husband, father, full-time employee, and blogger I find it hard to find time to read all the books on my reading list. Not to mention, it is challenging to retain all that I read in a useful, practical way. Interest piqued, I signed up.  A week or so later, I reached out to AB for this interview. Read more

A silly, little article has swept the internet by storm. I call it silly not necessarily due to its content – to be honest, there isn’t a ton within the article that I take exception with. Tattoos, college education, and a wife in the workplace, are a matter of preference and freedom, but matters of sexual purity, demeanor, and money management all find commands rooted within the Scriptures. These things shouldn’t be controversial in the least: every Christian is under… Read more

Ill-equipped and unprepared to spiritually shepherd a flock, many pastors are surprised to find the job unfulfilling and difficult. Seminary may have prepared them to write an exegetical sermon, but it didn’t prepare them to love their neighbor, put to death sinful, sexual desires, handle harsh criticism, or circumcise their heart. Read more

Trinity Church of Portland, OR just released word yesterday that senior pastor, Art Azurdia, has been removed from his role due to sexual misconduct. Like many of the other recent revelations of nefarious pastoral affairs – Art’s stings a bit. They all sting a bit. I’m just tired. I’m tired of seeing pastor after pastor fall due to sexual misconduct, and Art Azudia is no exception to that. I am weary of seeing those charged with upholding simple qualifications inevitably… Read more

Earlier this week, American actor Chris Pratt received a “Generation” accolade at the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Award Ceremony. During his acceptance speech, he offered viewers 9 life lessons, or rules to live by. These 9 rules were a mixture of humor, character development advice, and simple expressions of his Christian faith. All of which were met with cheering and applause from, what I assume to be, a usually hostile crowd towards Christianity. This response was anomalous, but not… Read more

Pornography is single-handedly one of the worst epidemics facing the Evangelical church today. There are a myriad of other factors which appear to be eroding the Western church from the inside-out, yet Evangelicals scarcely address the root of the problem of pornography within the church. On the whole, human sexuality is undergoing an existential crisis. Yet the church is placed squarely in the midst of this crisis, often not even addressing its own underlying issues until far too late. Leader… Read more

On the 19th of May 2018, the Royal Wedding of Harry and Meghan was broadcast and watched around the world. Yet it was not the dress that I saw spoken about so much, nor the new look of the royal wedding service. Instead it was the sermon of Rev. Michael Curry. Upon hearing the sermon that afternoon I posted a status to my personal Facebook page saying, ‘Man, that sermon. So close and yet so far. #NearlyTheGospel Talented guy though…. Read more

It is incredibly troubling when an individual opposed to Calvinistic teaching utters the phrase, “I’d never worship the God of Calvinism.” Enter any debate over the sovereignty of God in salvation and it won’t take terribly long for this bomb to be lofted in. The reason it troubles me though is not because I take this as some form of personal insult. It is the height of blasphemy against God, namely, because the God of Calvinism is the God of… Read more

At the onset of this piece, I wish to convey that I genuinely believe Andy Stanley to be a brother in Christ. I also believe he has a sincere desire to shepherd people, but unfortunately his desire to do so has led down many problematic paths in his teaching ministry. I wrote before regarding his statements on the virgin birth, much to the chagrin of many who count Andy Stanley as pastor emeritus due to his large following. I debated… Read more
