    Newsboys Tell Nietzsche that God’s Not Dead, Add Nothing To The Conversation

    In a statement released today, scientists have concluded that, based on their research, God is a myth. These words open the music video to the Newsboys’ music video “God’s not dead” (embedded below). A newspaper headline in the video says “God is a myth.” A billboard reads “No evidence that God exists.” An article online…

  • Projects and Promises

    “God, if You don’t want to control everything I do, and I can’t control what You do, then what is our relationship good for, anyway?” Controlling God. I was pondering how my prayers don’t really tend to impact too much what God does. That after I prayed that the cold would stop. (I woke up…

  • Be Better.

    As a culture, Americans aren’t very nice to ourselves. We have a million self-improvement classes, we go to school to get grades, and we measure our value by the numbers on our paycheck and 401k, the words that are or are not in front of and behind our names (PhD, President, etc).

  • Questions

    i come still broken and a bit confused How many times does the road we’re on wander through the valley of the shadow of death? Can we trust You to give us less than trials and tribulations? You only promised You’d be with us, not that where you’d be with us wouldn’t be hell. I…

  • Preach

    I learned during my very formative years that the world was largely filled with people who were going to hell because they didn’t believe in Jesus. I also learned that my primary job as a Christian is to get other people to believe in Jesus so they will go to heaven and not go to…

  • Reflections on the Holocaust

    Not for the weak of stomach. Exit while you can. Written on a sheet of notebook paper and transcribed. I’m sitting outside of chapel, They’re doing praise and worship inside, and I can’t go in. Not yet. We just watched a holocaust video. For the first time, I cried over it. The inhumanity. This must…
