The other day a friend of mine asked me what I thought about white privilege. That’s a bit like a cop asking you if you shot your wife or stabbed her. There really is no right answer – no matter what you say some group will demonize you for it. However, because I’m not the […]

The other night I preached on Romans 12 which is my favorite chapter in the Bible. Romans 12 teaches us how we’re supposed to treat one another and challenges us to live sacrificially in order to glorify God through our actions. I actually started this blog a couple days ago but deleted it. I found […]

As a lot of you know, I spent 10-plus years working in Republican politics as a campaign manager, political consultant, and legislative staffer. I learned a TON during my time in politics and one of the things I learned is that Christians often times put country and party ahead of Christ. I’m probably guilty of […]

I’ve worn a lot of different hats in my life. As I contemplate the events in our country this morning so many thoughts are running through my head based on each of my life’s experiences. I think what I want to do is explain my thoughts through the various lenses of life I look through. […]

It seems as if I haven’t blogged in forever! I really haven’t! During this COVID-19 event I have been using Facebook live to keep my regular preaching schedule so instead of blogging I’ve been doing videos at least five times a month! It’s been great fun actually but there’s been something on my mind for […]

Remarkably, the Bible uses the term “Fear Not” 365 times – coincidence? I think not!! As Christians, we are taught over and over again to live by faith not by fear. But what exactly does that mean and how do we apply it to the latest crisis in our world? First off, and this is […]

Yesterday I wrote about how love without truth is cruel. Today I’m going to take on the opposite side of that coin. Truth Without Love is Abuse. I grew up in an environment where my father was never accountable for anything he did. The cost of his unaccountability was abuse, neglect, homelessness, food insecurity, foster […]

My dad was a con man. Growing up – at least when he was not in jail – my dad taught me how to lie through his example. My dad was a consummate liar – he’d lie about big things and he’d lie about small things. He really never could tell the truth about much. […]

It seems like forever since I penned a blog. Honestly, not much has inspired me to write lately. I don’t know if that’s out of discouragement regarding what’s been going on in our world or just pure apathy. However, a thought has been rolling around my pea brain for a number of years that I […]

A Facebook friend of mine posted a meme this morning of former President Jimmy Carter that said the following: “Homosexuality was well-known in the ancient world, well before Christ was born, and Jesus never said a word about homosexuality. In all his teachings about multiple things – he never said gay people should be condemned.” […]
