Ever since God put a man and a woman in a garden in Eden, the devil has been trying his best to undermine scripture and turn the word of God into a fairy tale. If he can do that, he can convince the world of anything. Get rid of the Bible, no devil to worry about. Get rid of the Bible, no God to be judge and authority over morality. No Bible=no heaven and no hell. No consequences for our actions.Read More
Want to start an argument between church members in a Bible-believing church or among Bible scholars? Hopefully not, but if you’re up for picking a fight, just ask who the sons of God in Genesis six are, step back, and watch the sparks fly. There are few topics that raise more tension between professing Christians than the subject of the sons of God.Read More
If you’ve read the New Testament, heard at least a year of Biblical preaching, or have some spiritual friends, you’ve probably heard of the Armour of God. But do you know what it means to put on this armour? Have you fully come to understand that the weapons of our warfare are spiritual, not carnal?Read More
Most people familiar with the Bible, or those who have been in church for any length of time, are familiar with the term “mighty men.” We hear sermons about David’s mighty men and how they were champions for their king. This stirs us to action as we are encouraged to be warriors for Christ and honor him with our lives. We’re exhorted to be like them but in spiritual warfare rather than the physical battles those unique men fought.Read More
Thinking that someone is following you is a terrifying experience, isn't it? You feel vulnerable. Exposed. Unsure of what to do or how to handle it. Ironically, though none of us want anyone to follow us in that manner, our society is geared toward gaining followers.Read More

The Tweet that Changed my Life
You know how you say things, but you don't really mean it in a literal sense?
Some of these things are just customs, colloquialisms, and figures of speech. For example, you tell someone you're going to talk to them later, but you know you won't see them or talk to them for several days or ever. One of my favorite sayings that we toss around is "God can use anything he wants to do his work." We usually say that when we're trying to encourage a person experiencing doubt. We don't always mean anything!Read More
It took Michelangelo four years to paint the Sistine Chapel ceiling. It took America's top scientists and engineers almost a decade to get a man on the moon (or a secret location near White Sands for my conspiracy theory peeps). It took Noah decades, maybe more than a Century, to build the ark.
My point? Not everything is done overnight. Some things are built over a lifetime, and that's what makes them worth it. All great things, though, seem to have a breakthrough moment, a time when the vision is clear and the purpose begins to drive the vision.Read More
Imagine being aboard a ship at sea, mere miles from the coastline, but lost in darkness and a storm. Imagine, further, that you are searching, helplessly but hopelessly through the storm for a lone light in the thick wall of blackness.Read More
