The Ultimate Terrorist

It's easy to forget that there is another terrorist behind the human terrorist who actually lit the fuse. This terrorist, the ultimate terrorist, is Satan himself. We as believers can fight back.

21 Ways to Share the Gospel

1. Take someone to church with you, go to lunch afterward and ask them how they felt about the sermon (then dive in!) 2. Write someone a letter that gently segues to the gospel. Ask them what they thought about the letter later.

How to Spot a Legalist

Legalists are tricky creatures. They slither in the side doors of churches, sign up to lead Bible studies and fill the minds of once joyous believers with rules and requirements of what it "really means" to become a Christian.

Why Mormons Do Better Youth Ministry Than We Do

In light of the skyrocketing popularity of Mormonism in the United States helped along by the Broadway Musical, "The Book of Mormon", Mitt Romney and your nice Mormon neighbors I thought it would be good to recycle this five year old article I wrote. The thesis? Mormons do better youth ministry than the average Protestant church! Read on and see if you agree with me…

What Brand of Duct Tape Keeps You Quiet About Jesus?

Their are 3 brands of "duct tape" that keep Christians quiet about Jesus. These types of tape seek to seal our mouths shut about the good news of Jesus. The "Um, I'm not sure" Duct Tape - for the most part, church leaders are not doing enough gospel training.

Most reporters, many Senators and, even the President himself, are talking about the issue of gun control like it is the answer to the problem of violence in America. It is not. It may be an answer but it is not the answer.

Another Tragic School Shooting; How Should We React?

7 Reasons America Has Not Been Reached for Christ

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?

Ecumenical? No! Gospel-Driven? Yes!

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.

A Voice for the Voiceless

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.

The Best Method for Sharing the Gospel

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."

Do You Need to Forgive Someone? Do It Now!

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.
