When a friend told me I should respond to one article in particular—I smiled when I read it because I had nothing to rebut except…

Why Pain is a Catalyst for Purpose and Power

Pain is unavoidable in this world. The primary kind of pain I am referring to throughout this article is emotional, mental and psychological. Jesus promised us that in the world we will suffer tribulation John 16:33. (Both physical and emotional in this context.) There are many different reasons for pain: some pain is self inflicted,…

Why Many Mid-Life Marriages End in Divorce

Divorce has become a major plot line in entertainment today. Although we all know the divorce rate is over 50% in the USA, I have observed that many divorces occur with couples who have been married well over 20 years and are each over 45 years of age. This has astonished me. I used to…

The following are twelve of the arguments against…

Apostles to Intellectuals

Nowadays, many leaders, including myself, are attempting to apply the Bible to contemporary culture so the church can function as salt and light and disciple the nations. This is nothing new. The early church grappled with the same issue of being biblical but relevant to contemporary society. Soon after the first generation of its birth,…

Will Preaching the Word Soon Be Illegal? 

In the news recently, on April 19, 2018, it was said “California Bill AB 2943 has passed.” According to this law, the church can no longer preach or teach that homosexuality is a sin or wrong behavior and cannot try to correct that behavior. Even psychotherapy for gender dysphoria is against the law. Somebody on…
