KeyLife | Love for Losers

“There is no comprehending the logic of God’s love. It doesn’t follow our broken rules. It sounds stupid to help those who can never help you back. It seems foolish to we unaware criminals who worship justice. But to those who recognize that they’re withering away in this world, it’s butter, baby. And it’s free.”

EternityNews | My brokenness is no more or less broken than yours

“This is an issue the church has to confront more today than it ever has, at least in living memory. I am disappointed by the lack of grace and thoughtfulness that I often see in the words spoken by some Christian leaders, when speaking about this issue. It’s something I care about personally, not just because of my own attraction, but because I know a lot of people who suffer the effects of these comments and words.”

XXXchurch | 3 Reasons Why Porn Hurts Your Spouse’s Self-Esteem

“Porn addiction causes more damage to the people around you than you think. But there is hope and there can be healing, my husband and I are proof of that! So don’t give up.”

Communicate Jesus | 5 Challenges Experienced by Christian Men Today

“In the culture at large, confusion and shame abound and being a man is frequently communicated as an identity not to embrace but to apologise for. In the media, men are accused of male privilege, male chauvinism, mansplaining and misogyny. A friend is currently enrolled in a gender studies class at university and he told me that in every class the lecturer provides the same reason for the world’s problems – men.”

Southern Seminary | If Jesus already died for my sins, why do I need to pray for forgiveness every time I sin?

The Moment You Trust Christ: You Become Part of God’s Royal Priesthood

You are royal priests, a holy nation, God's very own possession (1 Peter 2:9).

The Moment You Trust Christ: You are Given Every Spiritual Blessing

All praise to God… who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ (Ephesians 1:3).

Blogging Theologically | Everything Sad is Coming Untrue

“That is the good news of Easter, friends: Christ is risen—and everything sad is coming untrue. That is the good news we celebrate not simply on one day of the year, or even every Sunday, but every day!”

For the Church | Brother, I Wish I Would Have Known

“I never told anyone about my addiction. I went to class, talked about Jesus, attended church—all the things seminary students are supposed to do. And no one was ever the wiser, at least not to my knowledge. I often wondered when God was going to kill me for making such a mockery of his name. But instead of that, he woke me up one morning with a life-changing thought.”

XXXchurch | 3 Ways Pornography Distorts Your View of Yourself

“Ask anyone who has struggled with pornography addiction, and they will tell you it alters how they think and what they think about. It becomes not just a craving that needs a fix like a drug, but images force their way into your mind and stay there, nearly impossible to get out.”

Cranach | Exploding Myths about Cohabitation

“University of Virginia sociologist Bradford Wilcox has published a study of the effects of cohabitation, couples living together without marriage. He especially looked at the impact on children when their parents are not married.”

Streetlights | Romans 8

The Moment You Trust Christ: You are Welcome in God’s Presence

Because of Christ and our faith in him, we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence (Ephesians 3:12).

The Moment You Trust Christ: You Become God’s Masterpiece

We are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago (Ephesians 2:10).

KeyLife | What is Christianity Ultimately About?

“As a pastor, I’ve seen way too many people pass out. They tried. They worked hard. They studied. They served. But it never seemed like enough or they never did it good enough. So, finally, in a fit of honesty and integrity, they threw their hands up in the air and quit. Their performances weren’t good enough, and they knew it.”

Wm. Paul Young | Lie #3: God is in Control

“There is an impassable chasm between a God who takes ownership for Creation along with the havoc we have produced—and One who authors the evil itself. The first you might learn to trust, the latter… twisted lip service at best.”

Gospel Coalition | 5 Christian Clichés that Need to Die

“One-liners aren’t always helpful. Sometimes, in our desire to simplify truth, we can trivialize and even obscure it. And to obscure the truth is to tell a lie.”

Strength to Fight | How to Build a Healthy Accountability Group

“At the centre of a healthy accountability group is vulnerability and truth. Practicing confession to your brothers or sisters is a gift from the Lord. Confession is the refusal to allow sin to dwell in darkness because in darkness it festers and begins to spread and grow. Confession is an act of humbling oneself before God and others.”
