Biblical Reliability Revisited If you were to read a biography of George Washington, what would you expect to find? Maybe you would expect to find information about his family. You may see information about his education and his upbringing. As you read, you would end up seeing his achievements and landmark accomplishments. You would expect to read about his presidency, crossing the river at Trenton, and would see his vision that led to the capture of Cornwallis at York. Perhaps... Read more

The Bible is the most important book (or collection of literature to be more accurate) on the planet. Within the works of the Bible, Human authors used the tools at their disposal to communicate the words of God to a human audience. God’s inspiration for these texts is what leads Christians to find these... Read more

What If the Questions of Students Are Worth Discussing? This is a question that is in my mind often as a Youth Pastor. I and an amazing team of Adult Leaders and Staff see to the discipleship and care of a decent-sized group of Middle School and High School students. One of our goals is to create an environment where questions can be asked, doubts can be wrestled with, and students know that no question will be judged as unworthy... Read more

A Doubters Questions “Do you feel the world is broken? Do you feel the shadows deepen? Is all creation groaning? Does the Father truly love us?” These are Lyrics to the Song “Is Anyone Worthy” by Andrew Peterson and Ben Shive. Of Course, if you are familiar with the song, you know that they are the questions that open up each of the verses.  These questions always hit me when I can worship with this song because they are incredibly honest. And even... Read more

  “Praise God for the Son of David! Blessings on the one who comes in the name of the Lord! Praise God in highest heaven!” This is what the people were shouting as a well-known rabbi came riding into the city of Jerusalem on a donky.

The Goodness of Wisdom Literature If you’ve ever read the Wisdom Literature of the Old Testament, you know that it is crammed with advice on engaging in relationships with others, dealing with finances, dealing with the anger of others, trusting the Lord, and of course… the importance of work. While the books of Proverbs and Ecclesiastes provide us with great wisdom, one must understand that they are not promises. In other words, the formula of Proverbs isn’t “if A, then... Read more

In the West, It Seems Our Culture’s Highest Value is Tolerance How tolerant are you? Are you inclusive of all? Do you accept and affirm every view and identity that could possibly exist? Are you condemning others by holding them accountable for their actions? Do you think that people that believe differently from you are wrong? These are the questions that are at the forefront of our culture. As organizations continue to enhance their companies with Diversity and Inclusivity Departments... Read more

  It was Last June… I was a relatively new salesman at a large liquor, wine, and beer warehouse. I was a new Seminary Student, a known Christian among my peers, and I had no idea what the climate would be in this particular store come Pride Month. For almost every holiday, the company provided pins for us to wear on our shirts. I am not completely sure if it was company mandated to wear these pins, but there seemed... Read more
