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.
It was the day that I lifted eight large bags of concrete that I noticed something change in my lower abdomen.

Over the following weeks, I saw doctors, who all agreed that I had an inguinal hernia.

What is belief? John Piper gives an incredibly confusing and convoluted definition of "belief" and "saving faith." Lucas tries to unravel the mess.
I had a good conversation with a friend last night. He asked a really good question.

I have a few quick ideas on […]

Before setting out on a multi-day hiking trip with a few of my friends, I was given a small orange notebook by my brother.

I received this question recently: Is it really necessary for an isolated people group to hear the gospel? I remember sitting through a sermon a long time ago about accountability and God will judge each person accordingly. It made sense that God would not condemn a person if he/she has never heard the gospel or […]
I got this question from an Atheist friend recently. I thought it was a really good question and worth an official response. Question: “You don't believe in Zeus, I’m assuming. Why do you think he was created, why did people believe in him, and why don't they anymore?” Answer: Actually, I do believe in Zeus. So you […]

We got this fantastic question recently. Hey Lucas I had another question. Do you know any scriptures on reading other religions books? 2 John 10-11 says don’t bid anyone Godspeed who has another doctrine. Is it still okay to accept a copy of the Book Of Mormon even if you already know it to be a […]
A question from a reader: There are various commands in the Bible to "love your enemy" in Matthew and Romans. However, there are other times when justice is called for (example: conquest for stubborn Canaanites, capital punishment in Law). I know that justice is an act of love. However, how do we treat the "enemy" […]
