  • Somehow We’re Letting The Confederate Flag Take The Spotlight

      Somehow, the Confederate flag has become a leading story. Not the nine black churchgoers killed in the Charleston Shooting, but the flag that represents a doomed rebellion on United States soil 150 years ago. In case you missed it: The families of the people murdered in Charleston publicly forgave Dylann Roof, who has confessed to the killings. […]

  • The Vice President’s Son Died, And I Think Nobody Noticed

    The internet has exploded once again, thanks to Bruce Jenner’s interview in Vanity Fair where he laid out his decision to identify as a woman named Caitlin. There have been articles, tweets, and “Open Letter To…” blog posts that Jenner will never read. My twitter timeline became a long list of what people are against. Vice […]

  • Colossians: Week Three

      We Are Free In Christ: Because of Who He Is, And What He Has Done Every year I take my entire family to our city’s Saint Patrick’s Day parade. We dress up in green, bring some snacks and watch the parade floats go by, occasionally catching free goodies they throw into the crowd. I […]

  • Colossians: Week Two

    Jesus is our Hope, Now and Forever. Last week we began our way through the Book of Colossians to answer the Question: “What Does God Want From Me?” Since our first evening together in Colossians, we have seen headlines that include the words “Ebola” and my home “Frisco, TX” in the same sentence, as well […]

  • Colossians: The Most Important Thing You’ll Ever Read

    The Most Important Thing You’ll Ever Read If you had a chance to tell a complete stranger the most important thing to know for their daily life, what would it be? This actually happened. The Apostle Paul had one shot to tell a group of people everything they would need to know… and he flat […]

  • Quote of the Week: Johnny Cash

    “Well you may throw your rock and hide your hand Workin’ in the dark against your fellow man But as sure as God made black and white What’s done in the dark will be brought to the light You can run on for a long time… …sooner or later God’ll cut you down.”   -Johnny […]

  • The Bible: How Should We Use It?

    We have already discussed What the Bible is, how is was written, and who decided which books were in (and out). Now we can get practical: What’s the point? Now that we have an ancient book, how on earth do we use it? Here are some best practices for how to relate the Bible to […]

  • The Bible: How Was It Written?

    We’ve discussed what the Bible is, now we’ll touch on how it was written. Direct Revelation. This has to do with those instances where God speaks audibly, literally and directly to one of the writers in Scripture. A specific example of this would be found in the book of Revelation, where God tells the Apostle […]
