But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

A Facebook status post by John Andrew Reasnor. Thought It worth sharing and repeating:
"Many Christians grow uncomfortable with the idea of churches filling arenas, setting up multiple locations like a Burger King, laser shows, loud bands, expensive sound systems, good coffee in the foyer, and so on.
I'm not a big fan of these things either. Well,...

"Unconfirmed reports" and murmuring came to a head on Sunday morning when it was announced that NewSpring Church had terminated the employment of controversial mega-church senior pastor and founder of NewSpring Church, Perry Noble.Rumors began to circulate on Thursday afternoon when NewSpring held a closed door leadership...

Though I had watched and listened to most of the videos at ReformedCon2016 and found them all pretty much excellent and edifying, this last roundtable of sorts was brought to my attention in the BTWN Facebook group, primarily for some interesting teaching by Darren Doane and a quote that was incorrectly ascribed to him.After listening to...
Yesterday Amy Smith of theWatchkeep blogspeculated that NewSpring Church has fired Senior Pastor Perry Noble. Following her course of action, I likewise emailed NewSpring Communications Director Suzanne Swift and received a similar response :
"Thank you for your inquiry. I would love to invite you to join us at church this Sunday to...
A disturbing video has emerged from the 2016 Seattle Pridefest which took place in late June.  In the video, a man holding  a sign that says on one side of it "Christ has died, Christ has risen, repent and believe the gospel" is accosted by no less than a dozen men and women. Following him around, they surround him...
One of the inevitabilities of being active on social media is being witness to the daily skirmishes between several christian groups and people that I like and whose ministries I equally respect. Right now some are behaving badly. Some are being needlessly provocative. Some are acting kinder than others. Some are acting...

 On April 23, Jen Hatmaker posted these words on her Facebook page After our beautiful, beautiful event today, a woman walked up to me and said: "I have been waiting my entire life for someone in church to say the words you said today." It was so precious that even as I type this, I am crying. One things I said was that it is...

6 Reasons Prince is Probably Not in Heaven

Written by
As offensive as this article may be for some to read, it's particularly difficult for me to write. Let me be clear, I love Prince. I LOVE Prince! He was for me the quintessential rock star. Growing up I remember my older sister being allowed; as a young tween, to buy the album "Purple Rain." It was my sister's love for Prince that turned me on to...

The Beauty And Excellence Of Destroying Unity Featured

Written by

They stated they believed in the God of scriptures, believed that Jesus was his Son, that he died for their sins and that he rose from the dead. They believed salvation was by faith and grace, and that loving God and loving people were of supreme import....

The Myth of the Martyrdom of the Apostles Featured

Written by
  There is a well known apologetic that is given as evidence regarding the resurrection of Christ. Preachers, teachers, theologians and laypeople point to the deaths of the apostles as circumstantial evidence concerning that event. They say things like “People will die for a cause if they believe it to be true, but they...
I recently had the opportunity to read through 904 of Joel Osteen's Tweets on Twitter. Joel has been quite prolific, usually posting twice a day. His content is not about life events or personal anecdotes or what he is eating for breakfast, but rather each one is a microcosm of a spiritual truth that he is seeking to convey. He is...

Shut Up About That Pastor Sexing Up That Girl

Written by
Initially this post was going to be titled: "The Pastoral Art Of Committing Adultery And Getting Restored Within The Year" but that proved to be a bit too specific and I wanted to go a bit broader. But tell me if this scenario sounds familiar to you: You have pastors and speakers who have been promoted across a broad spectrum...

    Free speech in social media is a hot topic, particularly when it comes to hate groups and extremists who use various social media platforms to spread their hateful message to would be followers.

        As part of my research into the novel exegetical exercise of “queering the Bible”, I came across Genderfork, which is a website that serves as a safe haven of support for people who don’t self-identify in the typical male/female, gay/ straight paradigms. Its motto is “beauty in ambiguity”...
  Last week Liberty University had Donald Trump speak at their convocation shindig. Having a high-profile speaker is not unusual in and of itself- they often have speakers and other political candidates do the rounds to say their peace or plug their initiatives. What was curious to me, however, was the effusive, energetic and supportive...

Miracles Are Meaningless To The Atheist

Written by
  There is a dishonest refrain that is spoken when the atheist/secular humanist is confronted with the possibility of miracles and how that might relate to their own personal salvation. They’ll offer up thousands of variations on the same idea which boils down to the same basic premise “If God exists, let him show...

  Christians love LEADERSHIP. It is a favored theme that has a soft spot in the hearts of most believers. I say “most believers” but actually I think it’s probably “most pastors.” More often than not they’re the ones who have an unrequited need to foist leadership principles upon their congregations. They...
