There's something especially sad about elementary school children being senselessly slaughtered. As a father to two elementary school aged children I can't imagine the pain that the parents of these precious little souls must be going through right now.21 comments
There are over 300,000 Protestant churches in America. Virtually every city in the United States has an abundance of Bible-believing faith communities. Millions upon millions of Christians attend these churches and, yet, this country is not reached for Christ yet. Why?200 comments
Whenever I hear the word "ecumenical" I think of a circle of pale-looking pastors, covered in honey and singing "Kum-ba-yah." What we need is Jesus-centered, Gospel-driven networks of pastors and youth pastors who unite for the cause of reaching every person in their cities for Christ.71 comments
Election night was a superbowl for America of sorts. Team Red lost and Team Blue won. I know Christians on both teams. So how should my red-faced brothers and sisters in Christ respond to the election results?37 comments
Politics can turn normally calm people into ranting, raving lunatics. This divisive subject can transform a friendly chat over coffee at a Starbucks into a venomous, verbal brawl. But it can also be a great segue into an opportunity to share the good news of Jesus.2 comments
I just read the Newsweek magazine article "Heaven is Real" which was written from the perspective of a neurosurgeon who claims to have taken a trip to heaven while in a coma for seven days. So why do I tend to be suspect of firsthand accounts of those who say they died and then came back? Because the Bible has two clear promises which seem to contradict this.84 comments
Forty eight years ago Shirley got into a car and drove from Denver to Boston to have an illegal abortion. She already had one child and couldn't afford another mouth to feed. Shirley's relatives in Boston spoke to her on behalf of the baby in her womb. You see, Shirley was my mom.
One day a lady criticized D. L. Moody for his methods of evangelism in attempting to win people to the Lord. Moody's reply was "I agree with you. I don't like the way I do it either. Tell me, how do you do it?" The lady replied, "I don't do it." Moody retorted, "Then I like my way of doing it better than your way of not doing it."32 comments
I'll never forget sitting in the Denver Coliseum as a fifteen year old in high school clinching my jaw and my fists. I didn't want to let go of my anger toward my biological father. The preacher seemed like he was talking directly to me and I was resisting his point with all of my might.27 comments
Sharing your faith is a scary prospect. Whether it is with a friend, family member, co-worker, fellow student or complete stranger communicating the good news can turn the once eloquent conversationalists into stuttering, stammering mumblers. So how can we get better at evangelism right away?
It astounds me that it has already been eleven years since the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Never before have three numbers defined our country in such a tragic way.35 comments
Jesus doesn't lie, exaggerate or use a teleprompter. Jesus doesn't pound us with relentless campaign commercials.
In college I had 8% bodyfat and could hang with the best of them when it came to push ups, sit ups and the like. But then something strange happened. I went into ministry full time.6 comments
There are many Christians who, down deep inside, want to share their faith but they honestly don't know what to say. Sadly, there are also many who call themselves Christians but they just don't care about the lost.143 comments
You are not just at school to go to school. As a Christian you are at school to go on a mission trip. Every teen-filled table in the school cafeteria is a mission field that needs reached with the good news of Jesus.54 comments
