Church Visitors

14 Kinds of Seeker

There’s a word that I used to hear a lot growing up in Scottish churches, but I don't hear much of it today. That word is "seeker." Maybe it’s because there are less seekers around.

Islam

Should You Be Islamophobic (Part 1)?

Current news headlines are filled with examples of Islamic-inspired violence and terror, with CNN recently reporting that the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) killed 270 in an attack in central Syria.

Bible Promises

In Case the Lord Ever Forgets Me

What if the Lord really ever were in danger of forgetting me? Well, the good news is He has these memory aids, mnemonic devices they are called, to guarantee that He doesn't lose track of any of us. And no, I do not mean God ties a string around His finger.

Summertime

Home Schooling, Campfires & How Time Flies

Home schooling isn't merely an alternate way to educate your children, it's another way of living, learning, and thinking. We took our finals in May and formally ended the 2013-2014 school year, but we have been learning, in some form or another, all summer.

Sermon Clips

Matt Chandler: The Gospel Is . . .

YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley used the words "clip culture" to describe the community that developed around his video sharing website. YouTube's visitors originally watched short clips instead of long form entertainment.

Motivation

How can I Stay Motivated in my Relationship With Jesus Christ?

A reader of my blog asked, How does a believer keep his motivation? I understand the motivation of the new believer, but how does one stay motivated in day-to-day living, year after year?

Sin and Suffering

15 Reasons the Greatest Suffering is Better Than the Smallest Sin

You have a choice. Option 1: The tiniest sin imaginable, a sin that would bring you tremendous wealth and other material pleasures. Option 2: The greatest suffering imaginable, for rejecting that one tiny sin.

Marriage

Video: Mexican Mayor Marries Crocodile for Good Luck

Superstition leads to strange wedding traditions. Recently Mexican mayor Joel Vasquez Rojas married a crocodile. Rojas said, "It's my wish to marry the young princess."

Courage

Courage Greatly Needed in the Pulpit and in the Pews

Can we talk about courage? This is as rare as plutonium these days, particularly among the very people who should demonstrate it most readily, the followers of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Television

Black Jesus on Cartoon Network

Premiering August 7th at 11:00 pm, Black Jesus is about a "black guy living in the hood". Yes, it's about Jesus, the Son of God, but the producers are mocking our Lord.

Thinking

Your Brain Is Plastic

For those of us who are temperamentally and instinctively on the more melancholic side of things, there's good news. You can change your brain to think more positively and feel more cheerfully.

Immigration

Let the Little Children Come

If you’ve been following the news the past couple of weeks, you’ve surely heard about the thousands of refugee children currently housed at the U.S. border. And yes, I deliberately use the word refugee rather than immigrant.

Parenting

Parenting With Scripture

Author Kara Durbin knows the power teaching your children scripture; Durbin's mother “blessed” her life by parenting her with scripture.

Friends

When Friendship and Truth Clash

Around here in Southeast Louisiana you’ll see billboards that say "Friends don’t let friends eat imported crawfish." I know people in other parts of the country who would change that to say "Friends don’t let friends eat crawfish, period."

Reading

7 Different Ways to Read a Book

Reading is kind of like repairing a bicycle. Kind of. For too long now my bike has been semi-operational. It has one brake that just doesn’t want to behave and all my attempts to fix it have failed.

Do you need to be Gluten Free?

Concern over gluten intolerance is increasing in direct proportion to the growing promotion of whole grains. As a result, people are often confused regarding the role grains should play in a healthy diet.

War

ישראל היא לנצח (Israel is Forever)

Karen Farris

Let’s go back in time—not thousands of years, just a single decade, when Israel vacated Gaza and began the process of forming a two-nation state. They left behind buildings, settlements, and uprooted their own citizens.

Some Things, Pastor, You do Not Want to Know

Christian Post Guest Voices

Pastor, you do not want to know why that committee turned you down for that position you wanted badly. I'm rereading my daily journals for the 1990s. One thing struck me, however, about the year 1992. I was looking for a way out of this church!

Awakened Together: The Hope of Resurrection

Christian Post Guest Voices

It has long been my belief that churches should create safe zones for people to question long-held church beliefs, particularly if those beliefs, often presented dogmatically by church leaders, seem to contradict the God-breathed and infallible Scriptures.
