Find out why discipleship isn’t working today. That’s what I explore in my eBook, Discipleship in Crisis. You can’t buy the book. There’s only one way to get it — by subscribing to my Patheos blog below. Read more

Reprinted from Beyond Evangelical. — Last week, I wrote an article entitled What the Virus Crisis Exposes and How Insurgents React. Today, I have more to say about the crisis. Panic is more contagious than calm. The more “news” you absorb right now, the more you’re inclined to panic. All you need is 10 minutes a day to get informed. No more. Not by social media, by the way. Find an informative news source you trust. Despite what many Christian people… Read more

Here are Martin Luther’s thoughts on The Black Death plague — which perfectly applies to the recent virus crisis: “I shall ask God mercifully to protect us. Then I shall fumigate, help purify the air, administer medicine and take it. I shall avoid places and persons where my presence is not needed in order not to become contaminated and thus perchance inflict and pollute others and so cause their death as a result of my negligence. If God should wish… Read more

“The man who views the world at 50 the same way he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life.” ~ Muhammad Ali I wish an older Christian told me the following when I was in my 20s. It would have saved me a lot of aggravation, frustration, discouragement, [fill in the blank]. Hold on to your chair. These are blunt, even unsettling, observations. GO HERE TO READ THE REST OF THE ARTICLE … Read more

In the spiritual life, we have the principle of pruning. Jesus talks about it in John 15. That principle extends to ministry. Some things need to be cut during certain seasons. Since 2015, I created and have held the first and only Mastermind gathering for people who preach or teach. It’s called MinistryMind. However, recently, I’ve decided after much thought that MinistryMind 2020 will be our last gathering of this sort. At least we will NOT have one in 2021…. Read more

I’d like to invite all authors — aspiring and actual — to our annual SCRIBE live training. It’s in April of this year – 2020. This is NOT an event you can afford to miss. It’s changed the game for scores of authors. It covers everything you can think of, not by theorists or people who have written just one or two books. But by a New York Times Bestselling author and a Wall Street Journal Bestselling author of multiple… Read more

The Bible makes clear that this present age is evil, that the world system is headed up by Satan, and that God will judge the world system in the end. Read more

We live in a day when what sells best in the Christian world are books, sermons, and television programs that are aimed directly at you — This Is Your Day, You Are the Reason for the Season, Become a Better You, It’s Your Time, and similar titles orbiting around the Youniverse. It’s time to take all the arrows that point to you and bend them back to our Lord. Behold the ill-starred Nazarene who went about “doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil.” Behold the artisan from Galilee,… Read more
