Why Life Begins at the Death of Normal

Death is a subject many people don’t like to discuss. It’s eerie. It’s scary. It’s just painful. Right now, it’s all too real. We’re staring death in the face, and death is staring back. Then, death is going a step further by robbing us of people we love. People who were healthy and flourishing just…

Go Home, John MacArthur…and Let Beth Moore Do Kingdom Work in Peace

While playing a word association “game” on stage at the Truth Matters Conference this week, John MacArthur and a group of his contemporaries were presented with the prompt “Beth Moore” to respond to. While the entire activity was incredibly short-sighted and immature to begin with, the true character of MacArthur and his fellow “men” was…

“It is a sign forever between me and the people of Israel that in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.” — Exodus 31:17 Rest and Sabbath can be difficult and confusing concepts in this “hustle” culture. My job hardly allows me time to…

If you live in the Lakewood/Denver area, you know the W-Line community features some interesting cats. I once saw a dude on the…

Me, Job, and the Military Man: How God Is Using My Broken Relationship to Repair My Heart

The Lake men don’t have that gene that makes you scared of interactions with strangers. Everyone is our friend. Even that dude at the airport hogging the wall outlet. “Hey man, can I charge my phone?” I did need to charge my phone, but we also had a while to wait until boarding the plane,…

We Must Not Be Silent: Why the Only Gospel is a Social One

A few days ago, in the midst of this past week’s series of tragedies that included the horrific deaths of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile and five members of the Dallas Police Department, Christian leader John MacArthur appeared in a video titled “Racism and the Black Lives Matter Movement.” The video was posted by The Master’s Seminary, where…

Death is Still Dead.

I love Easter Sunday. Every Easter, I attend church with my family and celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. There’s no shortage of singing or dancing (although there may be more or less of the latter depending on the denomination you may or may not associate with… Alright, bad joke). The point is: there’s hope. And there…
