Eternal Rewards

Part 3 of 23Eternal RewardsI grew up in a Bible-teaching church. We learned the Bible verse by verse. It was an incredible, almost seminary level, biblical education.

That’s why fingerprints are used in criminal cases because it’s nearly certain that if a matching fingerprint is at the crime scene, you were there […]

Is Jesus as trustworthy as a fingerprint?

Apologetics

Part 1 of 3ApologeticsVirtually everyone agrees that John 3:16 is a big deal. In fact, many scholars have called it the essence of the gospel. Why exactly is that? Find out in this short video from Free Grace International.

Apologetics

Part 1 of 3ApologeticsAtheists often claim that Jesus never existed in history. If that is true, then we should expect to find at least some support of the Christ Myth Theory somewhere in history. So is there support for the Christ Myth Theory in ancient history? Nope! In fact, it took about 1800 years for […]

Did Jesus Actually Exist?

When I was at Letourneau University, I was asked to host the yearly comedy show on campus. It was attended by a thousand or more college students who were eager to laugh. I had to do a handful of comedy sketches, which was both exhilarating and frightening.

Has this year made you tired? Many are struggling with the incredible changes that have come about in the last 18 months. It would be easy for anyone now to grow weary of doing good. Lucas Kitchen shared a message at Letourneau University Chapel on that very subject.

It’s beautiful to see the growing diversity of the church in America, though no matter how diverse we become in the States, it doesn’t hold a candle to the incredibly diverse populations of the Colossian church.

Ellie, the little magical sprog, and her brother Eloy had been walking up the mountain for more than an hour. Wobblewog was following behind, mumbling all kinds of things they didn’t understand.

The faith’s most important question, “What do I have to do to be saved?” Should have a simple answer, though no one in the piney woods seemed to agree what that simple answer should be. Despite growing up in the buckle of the Bible belt, confusion about the Christian faith plagued every step of Lucas’ journey.

In the corner of the Bible Belt, where I grew up, there were rules, rules, and more rules. Christians weren’t supposed to listen to secular music. We weren’t supposed to drink, dip, or smoke. No baggy pants, face piercings, or spiky blue hair was allowed. We were to steer clear of certain substances that would alter our mood.

Bedtime Lessons

Eloy and Ellie’s Baffle dragons did not want them to go on their trip. They growled and, woofed, and spat fire. None the less, the brave brother and sister set out on their journey Saturday morning because they didn’t have school. Ellie held the map as Eloy led the way. They were making their trip to The Wise Wizard, Waddly Wobblewog, who lived near Hogdog bog in a soggy log. After walking for a few hours, Ellie spoke up.

When I was in junior high, freedom came in chrome. To be free was to have a bike. Not just any bike would do, though. That’s because most of the time I spent with my brothers was in the woods near our house. You had to have a bike that could go off-road and handle all sorts of terrain.

Bedtime Lessons

There once was a little boy. He lived in a big castle in a magical land where mushrooms grew as tall as trees and trees grew as tall as clouds, and clouds didn’t grow at all because they were made of cloud fuzz. This little boy’s name was Eloy. The castle he and his family lived in was so big it had lots of empty rooms on upstairs floors that he had never visited. His parents told him never to go into those empty rooms on the third floor of their big old castle.

Things Above

When I was in high school, my summer job was producing videos and large print out media for a production company located in an old car lot. The place was hard to secure because of huge windows and ancient out-of-skew doors. So in the back, the owner kept a pack of the wildest, dirtiest, meanest dogs to guard the door. They were all breeds, and among them probably was present every canine disease there ever was.
