The Moral of Moral Failings of Christian Leaders
The character of Christian leaders is in question. We need to ask why and work for change. The past few months (and if we are honest, the past few years) have been hard for Christians, and evangelicals in particular. I’ve felt it myself as I’ve had to deal with some good friends...

You Have Searched Me, Oh Apple Face ID, and You Know Me
AI may be familiar with all our ways, but God created our face for much more. I love my wife's elbows. And my kids’ little toes. But when I have been away on travel for a week and return home, it is not their elbows and toes that makes me feel at home. It is their happy, smiling faces...
The Divorce & Remarriage of Evangelism and Discipleship
Jesus constantly and seamlessly integrated evangelism and discipleship into his everyday actions and into the way he spiritually formed and shaped the 12 disciples. I have often seen a false dichotomy emerge between evangelism and discipleship in many churches and with many Christians. Some...
