Saturday is the church trip to the ark replica, and I can't wait to see it. Ken Ham, builder and founder of Answers in Genesis, has made it his life's work to advocate for a literal reading of Genesis, so I know his dedication will be present in the information he pres...

Everybody has that one song that really gets them pumped up, that gets the blood flowing and steels their resolve. It's the song people listen to in the gym while they're working out. It's what they play in the background of the movie when the hero is defeating the vil...

No, the title of today's post isn't a typo. 

This Sunday will be our last Sunday in testimony month, and we've had some very brave people share their stories with us. All of them have my deep gratitude for telling us what God has done in their lives, for we're all bette...

Since March 23 of last year, our adult Bible study class has been poring over the pages of the Book of Revelation. That's right: for one day short of a calendar year, we've covered a whopping twenty-two chapters verse by verse. We've studied history, prophecy, symbolis...

I didn't wear glasses until I was a day away from turning twenty-eight. I had occasionally been given reading glasses that never really helped, but just before graduating from seminary, I got "real" glasses full-time. Why? Because you really can read so much your eyes...

I've really been hung up lately on Paul's preaching in Athens. I'm not sure why, but I've really dug in here for a while, and I keep finding new things.

On the whole, the passage teaches us a very valuable insight: whether or not we know it in so many words, we all wors...

Yesterday during the Children's Worship Time, I asked the kids about the key events in Jesus' life. They knew he was born on Christmas, and they could tell me he rose on Easter, but when I asked, "When did Jesus die?" the unanimous answer was, "Black Friday!" I suppose...

For being one of the most beloved people in the Bible, King Solomon is depicted as a rather controversial figure. Back when Israel had no king, God told them exactly how a king would sin, giving them a list of things a king must never do (Deuteronomy 17:14-20). In an a...

One of my favorite stories in the Bible is the tale of the woman caught in adultery in John 8. The story doesn't appear in the majority of the manuscripts, but it so fits with the character of Jesus it's never been seriously recommended for removal. We can all quote fr...
