Christian school ‘downgraded for failing to invite an imam to lead assembly’

Imagine forcing a Christ-centered school to have a Muslim Imam lead a school assembly? Good grief. That’s exactly what has happened in merry old England, where the school has been given a down-mark for failing to promote “tolerance” as part of the new British Values, and many other schools will no doubt suffer the same […]

The Seams in Satan’s Godzilla Suit

In 1954, greatness was born. It came in a peculiar package and was inherently inclined towards destructive ends, but it was greatness nonetheless. Are we talking about the birth of the super-secret, ultra-conspiratorial Bilderberg Group or maybe the dawn of the super-idiotic, hyper-congenial Miss America Pageant? Nope. While both may well peg the bad-o-meter and […]

What does the Gospel and Great Commission have to do with Ebola?

One of the greatest tools of the enemy and the old, worldly nature against which Christians struggle is distraction. We are easily distracted. Everything in this world tells us that everything but the whole, undiluted Gospel should be our focal point in life. Oh sure, you can “believe the Gospel” and “love the Lord” in […]

Enterprise, Falcon, or Galactica? What might Christians use to explore and cultivate the restored cosmos?

Enterprise, Falcon, or Galactica? What’ll it be? Yeah, I’m serious. And yeah, this is a big deal. (I will explain later; please hang in there and humor me ’til then.) Now, back to the important question: If you were living in a place and a time where things like space travel and space traveling ships were […]

Why and how the son of Tony Campolo became an agnostic humanist

  Bart Campolo announcing he is agnostic does not surprise most people. After all, his father Tony Campolo is the head of Red Letter Christians, an Emergent Church founder of a model based on “did God really say” approach to truth being relative. No, what is interesting (and the reason we share this here), is […]

The dangers of dismissing “discernment ministries”

No one who works in a so-called “discernment ministry” likes the term, “discernment ministry.”  It’s a term that we’re stuck with, so we reluctantly use it to get the point across. In reality we all need to get our discernment by being a Berean; a student of the Bible, so that we know it well […]

Preparing for Ebola with Confidence and Hope

Since last week’s revelation of America’s own Patient Zero having been diagnosed with the Ebola virus, many of us have become either glued, unglued, or both. Americans by the tens of millions have become glued to their computers, radios, televisions and cell phones for the latest developments, and sometimes unglued by falling headlong into “NOOOOOOO! It’s the end […]

Idolatry

America’s lesson to creation: Pride, freedom and liberty are stupid, destructive, and gay…when centered on anything but God.

What does pride, freedom, and liberty look like when severed from the law and nature of God their basis? We are increasingly able to provide a one-word answer to that ugly question, and that answer is: America. As reported earlier today, the Supreme Court of the United States has turned away appeals Monday from five states […]

Too big to fail is too wrong to tolerate.

  Ever wonder why it is that folks who make the most mind-numbingly moronic economic decisions on the most grand, globally impactful scale, tend to barely suffer any sort of meaningful personal consequence for their world shaking acts of stupidity? Every wonder why certain people, businesses, corporations, and governments can again and again and again […]

God’s judgement? Don’t worry; be happy

The visible church is increasingly avoiding the hard truth of John 3:16. Or more specifically, John 3:17-21: …whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. 19 And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness […]
