How in the world can Christians love one another when we don’t agree on anything but Jesus, don’t think the same way, don’t look alike, or don’t share a common cultural and political understanding of the way things ought to be? And then how can we love one another without selling out our convictions?

Getting Jesus Wrong - FREE Chapter!

Monday March 20, 2017


Want to have some fun? Read Matt Johnson’s new book (just out), ‘Getting Jesus Wrong: Giving Up Spiritual Vitamins and Checklist Christianity.’ I know, our Christian reading ought to be serious, thoughtful and godly.

I’m starting to think about Easter and just finished (as a part of my daily Bible readings) the book of Ecclesiastes. Frankly, with thoughts of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter and Ecclesiastes, there is a disconnect.

Steve’s Devotional – Personal Jesus

A dead man got up and walked, and he said that we could too. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is a fact but that doesn’t mean anything until it is personal and you have checked out the evidence for yourself.

Giving Up Liver, Okra & Booze

If you’re not careful, when you do sacrifice something for Jesus, you start thinking that you’re “getting about even” and become a Pharisee about it, looking down your nose at all those “Christian cretins” who don’t love Jesus enough to repay him for his love.
