Ten Things Congregations Wish Their Pastor Understood

I. Congregations wish their pastor would preach messages relevant to their daily needs and struggles 1. Many pastors out of seminary are answering questions no one is asking. 2. Many pastors are preaching over the head of the average believer. 3. Many pastors are preaching abstract truth not easily applicable in the lives of the…

7 Ways the Holy Spirit Convicts the World of Sin

Much of the Body of Christ today merely thinks about renewal, revival, awakening, and manifestations of God’s power when they think of the Holy Spirit’s function. Although we would all love to speak about revival and renewal in the church, we have to realize that the Holy Spirit has many other significant functions that are…

Twelve Signs of Abusive Leadership

There has been many articles of leaders in the media lately who take advantage of other people. This is a common pattern of abuse in which leaders use their positions of authority to take advantage of their subordinates or those looking to them for help. There are many signs of abusive leadership, which can relate…

Developing a Christian Culture that Results in Human Flourishing, Part 2 

Read Part 1 of this series on developing a Christian culture that results in human flourishing here. The fact that Jesus rose from the dead proves that a new heaven and new earth inauguration already began.

10 Reasons We Should Stop Separating the Church Place and Workplace

When I teach, I make workplace leaders uncomfortable if they are disconnected to the local church and I equally make pastors uncomfortable if they separate the church place from the workplace and do not understand marketplace ministry. Until the day comes that the need to make a distinction between the two realms ceases—our assumptions will…

Why Abortion is a Gospel Issue

I found it interesting that recently a pro-choice governor, Ralph Northam of Virginia — who was quoted saying he approved abortion up until the time of birth — had pictures associated with him in his college yearbook depicted in BlackFace and another with a KKK hood. Not coincidentally to this point, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret…

Infanticide Cheered by New York Progressives, Will the Church Finally Wake Up?

In the beginning of the year 2019 the Democratically controlled Senate and the far-left Governor at the helm of NYS colluded to amend the state constitution and pass a heinous law that allows the bloodletting of the innocent unborn until birth. This abhorrent extension of already existing Abortion law was likely established because of the…

How Scripture Describes True Evangelism and Modern Evangelists

The New Testament has laid out certain descriptive accounts of evangelism that I also believe are prescriptive accounts for the church to embrace as the Way of Christ and His Apostles. Unfortunately, these biblical patterns and principles are unlike much of what we have seen in contemporary Evangelistic outreaches and crusades. My objective in writing…

10 Common Unbiblical Beliefs in the Contemporary Church

As an observer and participant in the broader Body of Christ since 1978, I have heard many things communicated that I deem un-biblical. Many of these teachings are so commonly believed and or are assumed that the average Christian embraces them without examining the Scriptures. The following are some of the more common erroneous beliefs:…
