I’ve been doing this for a lot of years. I’ve cleaned up after more suicides, buried more babies, stood by more deathbeds and watched the pain of more people than I can even remember. And each time it’s fresh and horrible.

Know Thyself: How God Wires His Sons

By: Pete Alwinson on Tuesday July 28, 2015

christian life men

God has wired us in unique ways. We’re all different. Sometimes that leads to conflict, but the truth is that we need each other. To know where we belong in the body of Christ, we need to know ourselves. Then we need to be set free by God’s grace to be who he created us to be. This series will help.

Steve’s Devotional - I’m Confused about God

steve's devotional

I’m confused about God and I’m confused a lot (but if you say I said that, I’ll say you lied). God ought to be very angry…but he’s not. God’s love should not be unconditional…but it is. God should have washed his hands of us a long time ago…but he hasn’t. That confuses me.

steve's sermons

The Bible can be a frustrating book, especially when the religious manipulators use the “law enforcement texts” to keep us in line.

This message from Steve will set you free!

I Am Nothing

christian life

The law’s voice was deeply embedded in my conscience: justify yourself. And I don’t mean that merely legally, either (thought that part is true). I mean it in a way that was more in line with: find a reason for your very existence, Lauren. But that path leads to death, because no one can find the reason for their own existence within themselves.

“You don’t get it. You’re too young. We couldn’t get away with any of this at Key Life 10 years ago…the church has changed. And thank God,” I said the other day.
