Politically-Correct Religion

By | 5 Jun 2024

Introduction My wife and I recently binge-watched a so-called “faith-based” dramatic TV series on Amazon Prime Video entitled “The Baxters” (not to be confused with the 1970s ABC sitcom by the same name).

Committed Christ-followers and pew-warming pietists alike have been reciting the opening phrase in the title of this article for literally over 2,000 years. Anyone who has hung around any church or organization calling itself “Christian” for even a few minutes will recognize this phrase as coming from the Lord’s Prayer found in Matthew 6 and Luke 11.

The 4 P’s of Following Jesus

By | 31 Oct 2023

The four P’s, in my humble opinion, are all attributes we should be exhibiting in our lives as Christ-followers. Every one of us is called by our risen Lord to partner with Him in making disciples of the lost, thereby transforming the culture in which we live. If we are not effectively and powerfully impacting those within our… Read More »
