Is Donald Trump Truly Repentant and Does It Even Matter?

October 11, 2016

2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” I am not a politician or a pundit. I am a preacher and a …

Presidential Debates, Donald Trump’s Faith Council, and Why I Can’t Talk

September 27, 2016

Did You See the Presidential Debate? I watched the debate last night, every single word—did you? Beyond what was said, I was tuned in to the format, the non-verbal of each presidential candidate, and the seeming unfairness of the moderator. I’m sure it’s not easy to remain silent when maligned, especially when all or part of the …

Jerry Falwell, Jr., Donald Trump, and the Crisis at Liberty University*

January 29, 2016

*Note: title may be designed to ignite people’s fondness for negativity /controversy. JERRY FALWELL I was hosted this past Wednesday by the incredible David Nasser at Liberty University for what he called a “One Day Revival.” I was privileged to stand in front of nearly 12,000 students and proclaim, “Revival Part 1: Seeing God for Who He …

A Compelling State of Affairs

December 03, 2015

Leaders don’t spend a lot of time on things that are going well. Leaders look for underutilized resources, for new talent. They are constantly on the search for what could improve—and into that, they are speaking a compelling state of affairs. The subject of leadership is so massive in importance, we dedicated two days this …

Is Kim Davis right about her rights? Are we right about Kim Davis?

September 08, 2015

I think it great sin to fire public shots at members of Christ’s family and pray for increased faithfulness among us to “love one another earnestly from a pure heart, since you have been born again” (1 Peter 1:22b-23a). With that said, I want to ‘think out loud’ about the situation with Kim Davis. 

Don’t Miss This . . .

March 28, 2014

There is no more reliable indicator of the success of a child than the involvement of their father. There is no bigger drag on societies than men who refuse to work.

The Most Destructive Error in the Church

April 17, 2013

Soteriology is a word that comes from the Greek word soterios, which means “to save.” Doxology comes from the Greek word for glory and names the single stanza hymn. While many have heard the Westminster Confession that “the chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever,” fewer have understood that doxology …

What is Distinctive About Your Church?

October 03, 2012

Church consultants are everywhere these days, flying in, costing a fortune, and teaching church leadership teams to “establish their vision,” “figure out their unique value proposition,” “settle on a purpose statement and what they will offer to the community.” Demographic analysis, carefully targeted music,

An Epic Failure: Ichabod

July 24, 2012

It was Jack Nicholson who famously bellowed to Tom Cruise while playing Colonel Nathan R. Jessup in the courtroom scene of A Few Good Men, “You can’t handle the truth.” I wonder if the screenwriter knew how succinctly he had summarized our culture.

2 Problems with Consumer Christians

May 08, 2012

This weekend I preached from John 2:13-22, on Christ’s response to the consumer mindset that had taken over the temple. And nothing is more of an axe to the tree of vertical church—of God church, of glory church—than “consumer church.”

Someone is Wrong on the Internet

May 03, 2012

Today I commend to you this guest post from Dr. R.C. Sproul Jr., Teaching Fellow at Ligonier Ministries. I hope you find it helpful and encouraging. It takes two to tango, and that doesn’t even include the band. Our choices, our behaviors,

Celebrity Pastors and Multi-site Limitations

October 18, 2011

Some current thinking on issues that have been getting a lot of air time recently.   RE: Celebrity Pastors Every pastor manages a certain amount of increased profile and a tendency on the part of people to elevate them beyond

A Fresh View of God at Work

June 23, 2011

In Psalm 46:10, the Lord exhorts us to “Be still, and know that I am God.” It’s counsel I need to heed more frequently, and you probably do too. So whatever else you are doing right now, STOP. Cease striving. Take a few minutes for this account of God’s unconditional pursuit of one young man. …

Recalibrate: AAA Ministry

June 20, 2011

I have the tremendous blessing of being surrounded by a highly-motivated and highly-competitive staff, numbering some 400+. What I have observed is that if we are not intentional about selfless relationships that bless and encourage, we can find ourselves ‘writing checks’ we can’t cover and overdraft with the very people we care about most.

Keep Your Eye on the Ball

March 25, 2011

Is Your Church Compelling? Part 1

March 01, 2010

There is a deafening, non-stop discussion in evangelicalism about what the church needs to be (many of the most vocal are those who pastor no one and win very few to our Lord). On and on they pontificate about how church needs to be personally relevant and interesting and meet felt needs. About how it …

A Speech That Could Save Tiger Woods

February 19, 2010

My good friend and Walk in the Word board member Mark DeMoss wrote this great statement imagining the best possible outcome for Tiger Woods’ public statement today.  It should not surprise us that pagans don’t know how to repent, but it does shock me that they don’t get the elements of true remorse right even …
