Doing enough…

Then He will say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave Me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave Me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not take …

Christians are going to hell…

What a title, eh? My wife and I are reading through David Platt's mega-hit book Radical, a New York Times Bestseller.  It is ironic that this book is a bestseller considering its content so far.  We are into chapter 5 of 9 and tonight's reading is leaving us both questioning the very concept of salvation that …

Josh Allen, my pastor, my friend, eternally gone…

A week ago tonight my best friend, Josh Allen, was killed in a car wreck.  The other young man was killed as well.  Two men, in what many would call the "prime" of their lives, dead.  I do not know the other guy or anything about him.  I do not harbor resentment or anger towards …

What is wrong with us?

As a Christian I am ashamed of myself. Here is reality: 1. Everyday in your community a child is being raped, beaten, psychologically tormented, and otherwise destroyed. 2. Everyday a wife in your neighborhood is getting subjected to the torture of herself and her children at the hands of the one person who should be …
