If you struggle with suffering, and we all do,  and if you consider yourself an agnostic or atheist… I would invite you to fully embrace your answer to the problem. You may not like the Bible’s recipe, but really look […]

The Bible is Too Niavely Optimistic Most religions have a way of elevating yourself. Usually it is some version of good deeds. In Buddhism you get enlightenment. In Islam you follow the 7 pillars. In Judaism you keep the law. […]

I am capable of anything because I am just as capable of being as foolish, as unloving, unkind, and unaware as any horror story I’ve ever heard, it drives me to seek wisdom from God and others. So, the Bible’s […]

There was a powerful man from the Bible and ancient history named Cyrus. He was a leader. A ruler. A mover and a shaker. He ruled the Empire of Persia around 600 BC . And even he had this longing […]

If anything the last year has shown us is that nothing is certain.  The only certain thing is that… there is nothing certain. Few things can be counted on concretely.  Few things live up to their claims.  Remember that scene […]

Christmas Faith is Strengthened through Christmas Evidence.   The Bible offers The Bible Offers evidence to Strengthen our Confidence in Christ’s claims, birth, and final work.  Hundreds of years prior to His arrival, prophets laid out specific details of the Messiah’s birth.  Studying these prophetic predictions strengthens our confidence in God, His power, His wisdom, and His timeless plan. Doubts Are Natural: Do you ever have moments where you wonder… “Is this all really true?  Am I really sure that I haven’t placed my eternal destiny into a story about a talking snake and a magical Resurrection? Do you ever hear all the theories from different religions and philosophies and wonder if Jesus is really… the ONLY way to God?   With the pressure of multi-culturalism and relativism in our culture… Isn’t only natural to at least wonder? As you approach the holidays, it’s easy to see real life pain and allow doubt to creep into your life: Your son and daughter-in-law are struggling with infertility, your mom is dying… Your grandfather passed away this past year… You got a medical report, Audit notice, or pink slip… just in time for the Holidays….   Whatever the “thing” was or is, it has you doubting God’s love. God’s presence. And God’s plan.   Michael Jordan is a friend who has been attending our church for about a year. He would call himself a skeptic or maybe an explorer. I interviewed him on stage last January. He shared his doubts about faith and God stem from the hypocrisy of church people over the years.   However, he has been coming, listening, watching.   He even decided to go on our Belize mission trip last year and is planning to go again this year.  We were at a lunch a few weeks ago and he shared some interesting “coincidence” that have him thinking about his doubts.   As a boat lover who sold high end racing boats for years, it was a big deal for him to go to Belize and miss the annual boat show he attended faithfully for 20 years, but he went.   As a medical supply company he often has supplies in his bag.  He had several tools in his bag used to check a patient’s blood.  He pulled them all out of the bag. He even turned the bag upside down to dump them out.   He filled his bag with toys and candy for the kids.   As […]
