I remember a few years ago when I took a few friends to see a Christian play. The play was very good and had a good message, but for some reason the writer of said play thought that it needed a few swear words inserted in the beginning. (Personally, I don’t think that it is necessary to add such language to make the production relevant.) On the way home, there was a big discussion about how my friends were offended with the language. In fact, t»

Who is blind like the one in covenant with me, blind like the servant of the Lord? Isaiah 42:19I suppose you could write a book discussing the possible reasons that churches, ministries and their followers veer into such unchristian behavior that it becomes scandalous, bizarre and even abusive. I'm certainly not going to try to do it in a blog post.But my experience tells me that the observation from Isaiah is dead on. There is no blindness like»

Not long ago, I spent a couple days with David Kinnaman. David is President of Barna Group and author of Unchristian: What A New Generation Really Thinks About Christianity And Why It Matters and You Lost Me: Why Young Christians Are Leaving Church And Rethinking Faith. I highly recommend both! Here are my notes from these couple days, discussing the upcoming generation of 18 to 30 year olds. They’re in fairly rough shape, but here we go withou»

The reputation of Christians in mainstream culture, both in America and many parts of the world, is less than spectacular. The top 6 perceptions of Christians are (according to extensive research published in Unchristian by David Kinnaman and Gabe Lyons, via survey data of outsiders ages 16-29): antihomosexual, judgmental, hypocritical, sheltered (old-fashioned, out of touch with reality), too political, and proselytizers (insensitive to others,»

David Kinnaman is someone you need to listen to, and I would like to give you a copy of his latest book. His first book unChristian served as a wake up call. His follow up: You Lost Me is one of those books that I keep coming back to after reading it. This book is a must read for Rookie Pastors because we not only minister to those who have left the church, these are our friends, family members, and sometimes we are these people. Through the ge»

May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.Galatians 6:14I believe I am entering a new phase of growth.  And that's because I think I'm awful.I don't let being awful really get me too down, since of course there are going to be awful things about me continually, until finally coming face to face with The Lord melts away the last of my awfulness.This is the»

 At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do. All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. Come to me, all you who are weary»
