Speak Love: A Series on Semantics

Posted on

I heard this recently from someone concerned about Target restrooms and transgender persons and homosexuality and how important it was that people know their sins, because, “Life is short and what if they were to die tomorrow and not know they were sinners who needed a Savior?” They were talking about an opportunity they had to talk […]

“Christians” Need To Stop Talking

Posted on

  … Stop talking. Stop talking. Shhhhh. Stop. Zip. Shhhh, shhhh, shhhhhhh. Please. Stop talking… Stop boycotting stuff because people believe different things than you.

As a kid who grew up in Arizona it didn’t take long to realize a pool was where I would spend a majority of my life.  My sister and I rode our bikes 3 miles one way to swim practice each morning, would swim for two hours, and ride home to rehydrate and bring our […]

What If…?

So, I guess if you are reading this morning, you are still here on earth. Awesome! That means you aren’t done and the God who made you isn’t done with you, either.  Not “done with you” like you have a bunch of cleaning up to do type of “done with you” but, if God is […]
