“Theology must first be about a conversation with God…God speaks and we listen. The Christian theological framework is primarily about listening—listening to God. One of the great dangers we face in doing theology is our desire to do all the talking. We most often capitulate to this temptation by placing alien conceptual boundaries on what […]
“I recognize that many of us, as Christians, are hesitant to treat God’s Word as though it were a suspect or eyewitness statement that needs to be picked apart forensically. It almost seems to disrespect the holy nature of the text. I’ve even known brothers and sisters in the faith who were hesitant to write […]
My oldest daughter Kori feels comfortable talking to me about everything…everything. It’s something that I unequivocally cherish. Lately, believe it or not, we’ve been discussing theology. Not in the traditional seminary sense, but rather in the “I-have-a million-questions-about-God-and-stuff, and-I’m-going-to-throw-them-at-you-all-at-once” sense.

A lesson learned on my “not-so” day off…
Some issues are just more complex than we want them to be…
“In the entire universe, only two of God’s creations fail to bring glory to him: fallen angels (demons) and us (people). All sin, at its root, is failing to give God glory. It is loving anything else more than God. Refusing to bring glory to God is prideful rebellion, and it is the sin that […]
“The nature of Christ’s salvation is woefully misrepresented by some present-day evangelists. They announce a Saviour from hell rather than a Saviour from sin. And that is why so many are fatally deceived…for there are multitudes who wish to escape the lake of fire who have no desire to be delivered from their carnality and […]
