Two of my favorite passages on giving in the New Testament are Luke 6:38 and Acts 20:35. These two passages are incredible promises from God. A lot of people get upset when pastors talk about money. Why? Well there are a lot of reasons, but we have to remember that Jesus talked about money more […]

Why is there so much identification confusion today? It is not that it is something new. These issues have been around throughout history. They are however, new in their prominence in American Culture. In reality we all have some level of identification confusion. We all wrestle with identity questions. Why was I born male or […]

Our culture no longer believes in a Bigger Story. More and more people are stuck in their own small stories without anyone or anything to make sense of all the chaos and hurt in life. We all have the tendency to live without a Bigger Story today. The idea of a spiritual life in this […]

What is a healthy person? How do we describe a healthy person and how do we build healthy people? These are all important questions that are so overlooked today in the midst of our margin-less lives.

It is possible. And even the impossible is possible. We all have areas of our life that we want to change, but for one reason or another we have not been able to change. Unfortunately, way to many people abandon any hope for change once a period of time has gone by where they do […]

The first time I can remember fasting was after my mom shared with me she had cancer. I was desperate for God to intervene. I was a sophomore in High School and I knew God but needed comfort and assurance that no one but God could give me. This experience took my walk with God […]

We all are aware of the changing approval ratings of all the presidential candidates, but how aware are we of our own approval ratings? Most of us are more driven by what we perceive people’s approval is than we could ever imagine. As long as we are driven by the approval of others we are […]

There is a wrong view of marriage in our society today, and it has slowly crept into the church as well. Marriage is not an institution of man. It originated with God and was approved by our Lord Jesus. A proper vision for marriage consists primarily of two things: Covenant and Consummation. The Covenant is […]

I have noticed three major movements within the hearts of American Christians. First, in the beginning of our country we were still working through our new religious and political freedom and had high structure, integration into culture and a works based theology. This high structure developed into formalized denominational boundaries. So, what was critically important […]
