Worship in a Empty Church

Worship in a Empty Church

April 01, 2019

Did you know that almost six out of ten teens leave the church at some point? Nearly 60% of high school students who grow up going to church will close the doors to a Christian life. And usually, they don't come back (survey by the Barna Group). "Because of people breaking the laws and sin being everywhere, the love in the hearts of many people will become cold." Matthew 24:12

Is Suicide a Forgivable Sin?

Is Suicide a Forgivable Sin?

March 22, 2019 1 Comment

Whenever I answer a question like this, I’m deeply aware that someone may be reading this who is seriously contemplating suicide—and I would do everything in my power to convince them not to take that final, drastic step. With Christ, there is always hope. If that’s you, please hear me. Don’t you dare do that! Jesus and I deeply love you and need you.

5 Myths of Yoga Pants

5 Myths of Yoga Pants

March 21, 2019

(This post is written to Christian women and is based on a biblical worldview, supported with Scripture. Since the writing of this post, a sequel has been written, The Motive to Modesty.) Hurriedly I raked through my second dresser drawer in the dim light of the unlit closet, scrambling for pants of some kind. Finding some, I grabbed a workout shirt, jammed feet into tennis shoes and breathlessly answered the door for Mr. M. “Ready for breakfast?” he asked.

Does The Bible Support War?

March 21, 2019

While the Bible doesn’t approve of war for every cause, and while it encourages peace with all persons (Rm 12:18), it nonetheless indicates that peace and justice sometimes require war (Mat 24:6).

Christian Community and The Church

Christian Community and The Church

March 21, 2019

Community. What does that word mean to you? Hopefully, it is more than just a hit TV show and personally, as I reflected upon the idea, I wanted to share an example of how I recently experienced community in a way that was different than I ever had before. I experienced true community, or fellowship, one evening recently at a fellowship called Slingshot Church.

God’s Rehab for Weak, Weary Faith

God’s Rehab for Weak, Weary Faith

January 22, 2019

I’m not sure how God feels about our having favorite books of the Bible. It’s not like any of his words are throw-aways. Perhaps such preferences betray certain kinds of immaturity in us, not being able to see more glory in books we consider somewhat boring or confusing.

It takes extraordinary courage to change how you date. It’s not easy to reset boundaries, communicate better, flee sexual immorality, confess failures, and end the relationship that needs to end. But you will never regret making the right changes.

Defy the Impossible in Front of You

Defy the Impossible in Front of You

December 26, 2018

We have much more than a friend in Jesus. The danger in all of our talk about having a real, authentic, down-to-earth relationship with God comes when we trade the almighty, sovereign, intervening Creator of the universe for a companion to chat with about life’s joys and challenges.

God Hears Your Silent Screams

God Hears Your Silent Screams

December 23, 2018

Have you been through something that shook the very core of who you are yet not a single person around you could understand. So you played the role. Smiled to be polite, and cried a river inside. Continued attending the small group meetings during the day and couldn't sleep at night.

Be Anxious for Nothing

December 20, 2018

There are these handy little online tests that walk you through a series of questions which ultimately determine how stressed you are. Yet the reality is, if you’re typing into Google, “online stress tests,” you’re either a) extremely bored, or b) most likely … stressed. Lately, as I’ve found myself undergoing all sorts of life change, I’ve had plenty of opportunities to be overwhelming, absolutely, stressed.

Hope for the Lonely Heart

September 07, 2018

There is no stage of life immune from the fear of loneliness. The nervous student fears loneliness due to a lack of the familiar. The single person fears a life of loneliness without a spouse. God knows it all.
