A great number of blog posts have been written on the topic of how to encourage your pastor, but I sense in some capacity, some of the more difficult words have been softened to one degree or another. Many gravitate toward giving gifts to express your love for your pastor and encourage them. I am not knocking this in the least–it is an incredibly warm expression of care to receive a small card with a gift, or a hefty pile… Read more

In a recent video published on Twitter, New Orleans Saints’ Quarterback, Drew Brees defended his involvement with Focus on the Family, an organization known for anti-LGBTQ views. He was responding to some criticism surrounding a video he produced encouraging Christians to bring their bibles to school. In doing so, Mr. Brees walked into a common pitfall of postmodern Christianity: a misapplication of what it means to biblically love one’s neighbor. Read more

There is a growing trend of prominent Christian leaders and artists forsaking historic, Christian doctrines and morals—denying the God they used to proclaim. Many are even adopting the designation “EXvangelicals” to describe themselves. Joshua Harris, former Covenant Life Church Pastor and Christian purity book author, is the most recent to abandon orthodox beliefs for the culture’s fool’s gold. His denouncement of Christianity shocked countless people who grew up with his advice on dating, courtships, and sexual purity. For many of… Read more

Joshua Harris, famous for writing “I Kissed Dating Goodbye” on the courtship model, announced via Instagram that he is no longer a Christian. In it, he explains his “deconstruction” of a biblical worldview and further expresses remorse for many of his previous beliefs. Inevitably, what this portrays of Joshua Harris is that he went down a road seeking to “repent of his wrongs” in advocating for what can only be construed as biblical conservatism, yet came out on the opposite… Read more

The future of our world rests on the decisions we make today, and we must genuinely ask ourselves, “what are our children’s lives worth?” If we forfeit our morality, we will lose our nation and, one day, answer to God. Read more

Theology is critical for all, especially for Christians. A denial of the need for theology is often just an excuse for laziness and disbelief. It is this poor logic that plights the liberal and shallow branches of Christianity. Embracing such deceptions, they will convince themselves that aimless acceptance and/or misguided passion is an adequate replacement for Jesus’ propitiation of God’s wrath. Read more

As a believer who considers the gathering of the saints as a commanded, valuable, necessary privilege of grace; I had always struggled with these talks – I suppose I still do. Read more

I have spent the past few days pondering the events surrounding the death of Rachel Held Evans and wondering of what use it would be to contribute towards the discussion that has ensued in her passing. In some sense, I feel there is little to contribute, as many finer writers than I have given commentary on the event, expressing not only condolences to her family and those impacted by her, but have even set up GoFundMe fundraisers in order to… Read more

No shortage of talking points has been spurred by Julie Zauzmer in her Washington Post article on the recent synagogue shooting in Poway, California. Several internet commentators have taken this incident to the front lines of the racial reconciliation debate amongst Evangelicals, claiming Earnest’s manifesto is the natural result of his Reformed roots. The reason being (according to some): Reformed Christians have not done enough to condemn the evils of white supremacy in the church and broader American culture. The… Read more

Unless you’re time traveling with Doctor Who or Sam Beckett into Israel’s Babylonian exile, hearing someone proclaim Jeremiah 29:11 over their life and future should give you just pause to utter, in true Quantum Leap fashion, “Oh, boy.” While a wonderful verse of promise and hope, it is given within a very specific context often ignored by modern Christians. The text has nothing to do with how God plans to use your overpriced liberal arts degree to prosper you and… Read more
