On Why I Write

I first started this website back in January of 2012 as a New Year’s resolution. Since then, I have made it my aim to write at least one article per month, which I have only missed once in the past three years. In addition to these articles (which now total over 140), I have spent […]

The Amazing Faith of Epaphroditus: 5 Words That Describe the Christian Life

Image credit: lifeinchristministries.com Though the “big names” of the Bible tend to receive the most attention, I have often found myself drawn to the lesser known people mentioned in Scripture.

The Impending Crash Landing of Pastor Mark Driscoll

Mark Driscoll is about to go down in flames, and the whole world will be watching. Driscoll rose to fame in the evangelical world (and the secular world as well) in the blink of an eye. This is largely due to the rapid growth of Mars Hill Church, the church that he and a few […]

How to Catalogue the Sermons You Preach

Over the course of a ministry career, a preacher is going to spend countless of hours reading, studying, writing, and delivering sermons. I am of the opinion that most sermons and self-prepared Bible lessons should be saved in a personal catalogue by every Bible teacher. A few reasons you might want to do this are: […]

The Invaluable Presence of Dad

The other day I was driving when I noticed the vehicle in front of me had one of those stick figure families on the rear window.
