In a blog post entitled, “What Foster Parents Wish Other People Knew,” Sharon Astyk writes about how hard being a foster parent is and gives some practical tips for loving foster families. Among some of the things she writes are, “The kids aren’t grateful to us, and it is nuts to expect them to be, or to feel lucky that they are with us,” and “Don’t hate on their parents.” I thought about that post while viewing the new movie,… Read more

Shame is often presented as this ever-looming enemy – one we need to simply cast aside as we pursue true happiness and joy in this fleeting life. Psychological studies abound on how shame is simply a measure wherein another individual is exercising control over you – you just need to escape it and move on. Others might advocate for some causal benefits of it which allow us to navigate social mores more easily, yet the emphasis is still placed upon… Read more

1) Don’t repeatedly point to the word “whosoever” or “world” in John 3:16  s verse. These may rooted in a reasonable question, if you are unfamiliar with a Calvinistic interpretation of the text, but this is not a place to hinge a debate. If you’re online, typing in all caps will not gain you any friends either. Read more

“When Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished.” And bowing His head, He yielded up His spirit.” (John 19:30, ESV) The words “it is finished” are universally recognized as those Jesus uttered with His last bit strength at Golgotha.  Often taken for granted as merely a signal of the end of Jesus’ earthly mission, those three little words ought to be a never-ending wellspring of comfort for Christians in every generation. They are evidence that something big was completed. Anyone within hearing distance of the famous last… Read more

Andy Stanley recently penned this piece on the use of the Law for the New Testament believer. While he doesn’t explicitly signal this is what he is writing about, it undoubtedly is – but more importantly, he is undoubtedly wrong and makes several categorical errors. Now, this is certainly not the first time Andy Stanley has made comments about the Old Testament that are inherently problematic. I’ll actually go a step further and say I earnestly sense Andy’s knowledge of… Read more

A few weeks ago, Les Lanphere, creator of the film Calvinist, announced a kickstarter and plans to produce a new film called Spirit & Truth: A Film About Worship. The aim of this project is very timely. I was fortunate enough to catch up with Les and talk a little about the film, and its underlying driving force: The Regulative Principle of Worship Read more

Steven Furtick has long been a bane to the Evangelical church on the basis of his own self-admission: he’s unqualified for the pastorate. He literally wrote the book on it in response to MacArthur’s one word answer when asked what his thoughts were on Furtick. Yet, rather than reassess whether or not he would be qualified per Scripture’s own stance, Steven Furtick doubled down in his pride with a publishing deal. While he may be unqualified in numerous areas, the… Read more

There is no inconsistency between being pro-life and in support of the principle of the death penalty. In fact, the same basic reality undergirds the Christian’s support of both. We will see this by walking through the Christian arguments against abortion and for the death penalty in five points. Read more
