Stolen Wallets and Temples of the Holy Spirit

Sorry for the poor sound quality for this episode. I tried doing my first Facebook Live podcast the other night, and this is the audio from the video. I cleaned it up as best I could but it’s not as crisp and clean sounding as normal. Anyway, I share a funny or confusing testimony about […]

Church Building: The Cart Before the Horse?

Church comes as a result of discipling. Discipleship ought to be the backbone and cause of ‘church’, not the other way around. The tail isn’t intended to wag the dog. Likewise, you can’t teach how to be a disciple by imparting information once every week. Discipleship is modeled with imitation. I have to admit I […]

Face to Face with God: No Need For Other Intermediaries | Podcast

As usually happens in internet land, I came across a blog post He wrote, wrote a response to it, he found it, and we became social media friends. To bring yourself up to speed, he wrote a blog post called Regarding […]

Are You Drinking Undrinkable Water?

Religion vs Organic Christianity

For those of you who don’t know me–or at least not well–I am all about practical jokes. In fact, on a weekly basis one or two of my roommates in Bible College were the victim of some kind of funny prank on my part, and usually with my third roommate’s collaboration when we all lived […]

Skipping church? Facial recognition software could be tracking you – The Washington Post

One software company is now providing churches with software to better track who shows up at their worship services. Source: Skipping church? Facial recognition software could be tracking you – The Washington Post Nope, again a real thing and not an Onion article. I don’t know how I feel about this, since one of the […]
