Fear’s Biggest Fear

Fear is quite possibly the most intimidating four letter word in the entire world. When the Bible speaks of “men’s hearts failing them for fear” it isn’t exaggerating. That literally happens. There is something that is so gripping about fear that it paralyzes us and refuses to allow us to respond rationally. Instead, we get […]

Does the Resurrection Matter?

There is no more important debate in the world of Christianity than the debate over the reality of the resurrection. Unfortunately, due to pressure from the world, there are even some “Christians” who question whether the resurrection really happened.

Paul’s Writings: Philemon

For the American, freedom means living life in any way he chooses. But even within those few examples there might be people who disagree […]

The Struggle is Real

Every once in a while I like to write about the topic of discipleship. I don’t do it to badger or belittle anyone, but I simply do it as a reminder to all of us of what it really means to be a Christian. Sometimes it’s easy to get lost in the production and lights, […]
