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 […]

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 […]

TooBigToFail

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 […]

Faith, Courage, and Hope in the Face of Ebola

What a difference a day makes. Just 24 hours ago, we had not yet gotten the news that an Ebola-infected “patient zero” had been diagnosed in America. Up until that moment, many of us prayed and hoped that this devastating plague would not find its way to our land. Others artificially preserved their optimistic take through an ignorance-is-bliss […]

Call me crazy, but I think this Islam thing just might be evil.

I know, I know…it’s a “religion of peace”. So says Barack Obama. And George W. Bush. It’s also not biblical Christianity, which pretty much instantly qualifies it as some kind of a good thing these days. And yes, I know that Islam and its many defenders, both Muslim and non, frequently pitch Islam as a great force for peace, love, and progress […]

Remember when a bunch of naked guys on bikes riding past a crowd of little girls was a bad thing?

Remember the good ol’ days when something like a parade of naked men on bikes riding by a bunch of little girls downtown in broad daylight, waving and smiling as they went along, would have resulted in either an arrest, a lynching, or some similarly appropriate beatdown?

Sin Pill2n650w

Sin? We have a pill for that.

Sin’s Symptoms as “Disease” As Christians, we understand that things such as emotional pain, depression, and the like are often (though certainly not always) related to another term that we don’t hear much of in televised drug commercials or read about in prestigious journals of medicine: Sin. As Christians, we also understand that sin leads to […]

Two words to help us trust, obey, and adore God.

How reliable is God? How sure are His promises? Does He ever have (or need) a Plan ‘B’? These are important questions to ask. How we answer them will greatly impact our approach to proclaiming the Gospel and applying the Great Commission, particularly in the dark and darkening culture in which our Lord has placed […]
