Do we live for a mere inscription on a tomb?

Do we live for a mere inscription on a tomb?

Is there meaning to this madness? Is it just a rat race and then nothing but a cold, silent, and rotten end? Do we live for a mere inscription on a tomb? An inscription that will inevitably fade with the passage of time? Seneca Said, “When you see a man often wearing the robe of […]

Deconstruction

Deconstruction

Deconstruction is in vogue I recently looked at #exchristian posts on Instagram. There are a lot of them. It’s pretty popular to recount what is wrong with the Church. Why? And how far should it go? What’s deconstruction? Deconstruction is more than just saying what’s wrong with church. A lot of times it’s saying what’s […]

Why read?

Why read? An argument for the importance of reading

Why read? Why am I committed to reading? For one, words matter. They matter to me and they mattered to Jesus and Paul too. I think words and reading should matter to you too. Jesus read Jesus apparently read or at least retained what He heard as a kid. He listened to the teachers and […]

Does the concept of justice even make sense today?

Does the concept of justice even make sense today?

Humans, I believe, want justice. I believe that is a natural and good desire that is innate within us. Where, however, does the concept of justice come from? How do we know what is right and what is not right? Does the concept of justice even make sense today? The theme of the day is, “Have […]

Awaking Relevance

Awaking Relevance Introduction

How should we live and why? This is written for those who think church is bigoted and bad. It’s written for those who are bitter and done. It’s honestly specifically written for one of my friends. I want to awake them and you to the relevance of Christianity. Will you take some time to consider […]

We're Listening... To Something.

We’re Listening… To Something.

We all listen to something.  We all listen to something. Or we all get our idea of what we should do, be, and care about from somewhere. Whether Cosmo Magazine, the Wishbone app, Ask.fm, whatever you watch on Netflix, or whatever is said on Snapchat through BuzzFeed. Should we listen to Taylor Swift, Jimmy Fallon, […]

Truth

Truth is a shape sorter

There is a certain way the world is, whether we like it or not. I think of a shape sorter for example. There are certain places where things fit and certain places where they don’t fit. A square is a square and goes in a square hole, not in a triangle hole.[1] We could imagine […]

What we do matters.

What we do matters. And that’s good news.

Yesterday I posted a few thoughts about Matthew 16:27 which says “the Son of Man is going to come with His angels in the glory of His Father, and then He will repay each person according to what he has done.” For a lot of people that may seem very heavy and discouraging. For me, […]

10 Quotes from Jonathan Pennington’s book, Jesus the Great Philosopher

I appreciated Pennington’s book. He did a good job showing that “Christianity is more than a religion. It is a deeply sophisticated philosophy” (Jonathan T. Pennington, Jesus the Great Philosopher: Rediscovering the Wisdom Needed for the Good Life, 159). Here are 10 quotes that stuck out to me: “When we try to live without knowledge of physics […]

What if Satan wants to destroy the Church more than the country?

In the book of Revelation the Church is not called to react to the End or the antichrist by moralistic, militaristic, or political means. The Church is called to return to Messiah Jesus, remembering that those who continue faithful to the End will receive the “crown of life.” The way of resistance of evil, is […]
