Obnoxious Not Oppressed

Introduction It is a dark day indeed when I find myself condemning something along with the representative from Minnesota Ilhan Omar. And yet here we are.

Don’t Neglect Your Histories

In the providence of God there was a curriculum shortfall in the ministry I work for this semester. This required us to go back into our files and pull out an older series of lessons that had been discontinued by our publishing house several years ago. At the time we, as a staff were notContinue reading “Don’t Neglect Your Histories”

What Happened to Charity

Controversies and Keller

Introduction Following, rather sharpish, on the heels of last weeks impromptu covering the easy manipulation of “evangelical elites”  by the government.

For some time now there has been a growing consternation among Christians about the fact that, not only do we with Christ win in theContinue reading “Do we Really Believe in the Kingdom of God?”

The Stories He Told

This is the final installment of this series. The previous posts can be found here, here, here, here, and here. Introduction I am still digesting the final episode of Mike Cosper’s Rise and Fall of Mars Hill. But am pretty sure my conclusion will not change too much after further pondering. The finale was, inContinue reading “The Stories He Told”
