All of this access to knowledge really hasn’t made society any better. We’re still blundering down the same paths of destruction. The mere ability to call up information does little to showcase human intelligence. We still make the same mistakes. And an over-reliance on instant information short-circuits the brain’s cognitive and reasoning power. This can’t be good for the human race. to intelligence Read more

We have another Kingdom, one that doesn’t need a political win on this earth to flourish. For centuries, God’s faithful believers have lived through despots, knaves and fools as kings and rulers. The Church has survived tyrants, dictators, and simpletons at the helm. Since we are in the world, but not of it, our purpose transcends politics. That’s the city on a hill we should long for. The Kingdom of God transcends any party, any platform, any body politic. Read more

There is an uncivil war in churches, workplaces, and families. This election is not more important than our friends. It’s not worth turning our backs on those we love. Elections come and elections go. But our relationships should last forever. I would like these few words to be a clarion call to both people of good reason and those of faith – don’t forget the people you love. Read more

As a survivor of human trafficking, embers of my exploitation have burned self-hate, fear, anger, anxiety, crushing heartbreak into my life. As the years’ pass, there have been times where I’ve found myself screaming, “God if you are real, why did you allow so much pain into my life?

Unfortunately, too many of our political leaders have, calling church “nonessential” in the middle of a national, worldwide crisis. Instead, they should be embracing thoughtful, deep leadership by God’s people through this period. Listen to the science, yes. But maybe as a nation, we should give God a try because what we are doing on our own isn’t working. Read more

Lurking in the background is the arrogant presumption that what we know today is the correct view of history. To think that only today, after thousands of years of human history, that we are the chosen generation, should give us pause. We shouldn’t believe that we are the people with the absolute moral authority to look at generations past with a righteous judgment.   And worst yet, we want to transfer the sins of the fathers – and their friends – on to a current generation. That is a deep and dark hole to plunge, a place in which no one is safe. Taking the innocence of a modern people and swapping that for the guilt of the ancients is neither practical nor reasonable Read more

Thus, the problem with Bucket Lists. We think that to really experience things, we have to grasp everything this planet has to offer. So we eat to excess, slip into sensuality, travel without satisfaction, and buy with no regard. We act as if this is everything.  We mark them off, one by one. But in the end, all we have is an empty list – and an empty heart. Read more

The problem with a  Christian culture that is increasingly influenced by secular thoughts, we don’t measure our choices by God’s standard. His choice isn’t consulted, instead, we pick one of the two options and then ask for his blessing. Read more
