Video Discipleship In a Digital Age

“Tim Keller once posited a question along these lines: Why is it that so many young church-going people lose their faith within a term or so of going to college? They attend church growing up, youth group, parachurch camps etc. They do the whole Christian young person thing. But one semester into university, they come back home and they’re not believers, or they’re living with their newfound romantic partner. What happened?” It’s a good question.

What If I Differ with My Pastor on Politics?

It’s a question worth thinking about: what should you do if you differ with your pastor on politics?

God is always working, even when we don’t see

Barbara offers a sweet reminder that God is always working, even when we don’t see it with clarity.

Where God intends sex to communicate, “I belong completely, permanently, and exclusively to you,” today it communicates nothing more “let’s have fun,” or “you’re good enough for now.” It has no great meaning and demands no special context.

He who loves God cannot find contentment in any thing without Him.

—Thomas Watson

    It’s Not a Life of Ease

    You can’t read the New Testament and fail to understand that the Christian life was never meant to be a life of ease. Each of us will encounter adversity and adversaries, and each of us will have to wage war against our fearsome foes— the world, the flesh, and the devil. Then, each of us…
