Cool Tools

As I recently explained in my Hermeneutics class, there are “tools” and then “Cool Tools”. If you get your hands on the Cool Tools, reading God’s Word becomes infinitely more exciting. People think the Bible is boring only because Google and Facebook turned reading into a mind-numbing, button-pushing, exercise in futility—the Bible has no “likes” […] Continue reading

Blasphemy

What would happen if Christians rioted every time their Savior and Lord was insulted? Western civilization would be reduced to ashes, I think. It raises the question of why Christians seem so apathetic about blasphemy—it even begs the question why Jesus was so apathetic about it.

My Favorite Year

“How is Simon’s mom?” one of the ladies in my cardio hip hop class asked one morning when Simon was two months old. “That’s your new name–you’re Simon’s mom now.” Motherhood is even more than a new name–it’s a new … Continue reading
