The Stories of Shipwrecks

6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, 7 casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. 8 Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. 9 Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing… Continue reading The Stories of Shipwrecks

Who Am I? Part 2: The Image of God and Human Relationships

The previous chapter [available HERE] evaluated the naturalistic worldview approaches of relativism and utilitarianism to human relationships. Relativism leads to brokenness; utilitarianism, while focusing on what “works” for the majority, leads inevitably to oppression and injustice for the minority. In this chapter we want to lay a cornerstone for a Christian answer to any question… Continue reading Who Am I? Part 2: The Image of God and Human Relationships

Who am I? Part 1: The Flawed Worldview of Naturalism

This article comes from the 2019 ENDURE Apologetics conference held at CSU. Today in the realm of relationships, chaos and confusion reign. The traditional institution of marriage has been unstable for a long time now – way before same-sex marriage became legal in the U.S. and other countries.

“Press On”!

“12 Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. 13 Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward… Continue reading “Press On”!

Taste and See

“Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!” (Psalm 34:8) I remember one day when I was teaching high school Bible, I had a parent email me and ask if we could setup a meeting. If you’ve ever taught, then you know that phone calls… Continue reading Taste and See

When Life is Hard

In 2009, I led my first international mission trip. I led a group of twelve people from my church in Ponchatoula, Louisiana to Volgograd, Russia to work alongside one of our International Mission Board missionaries and a local church that he was a part of. If you’re not familiar with Russia, Volograd is about 500… Continue reading When Life is Hard
