A friend of mine recently told me he had stopped going to church. “I suppose I’m still a Christian,” he said, “but I went to Christ because I felt so ashamed and condemned. When I go to church, I feel even more condemned and ashamed than I did before I met Christ.” My friend was saying he had moved from dead to “deader.”
Steve’s Devotional - Free to be Honest

Jesus has been frustrating my life ever since I met him. Jesus hardly ever goes where one expects him to go, hangs out with the people one expects him to hang out with, and says what one expects him to say. Frankly, Jesus isn’t as religious as we think he should be.
Steve’s Devotional - Satan is Real & Out to Get You

I want to introduce you to someone so evil that most Christians can’t even comprehend that evil.

What does one think in the face of tragedy? What does one say? More important, what does one think and say about God? Is God a monster or can he be trusted?
We Fake It
Wednesday June 8, 2016christian life •
It is quite easy (and human) to be proud of one’s goodness and, if the goodness isn’t real, to fake it. That sort of thing goes on all the time with those who say one thing and live in a way quite different. It’s even worse with us.

Steve’s Devotional - Is Grace Too Good to Be True?
Monday June 6, 2016steve's devotional •
As a pastor I felt called to admonish people to get better. Do you have any idea how hard that was? It was my job description to get people to stop doing what they clearly did not want to stop doing. It was my purpose in life to get people to stop sinning. The fact is, people like to sin or they wouldn’t sin.
