The Great Racism Hoax

Here’s my message entitled, “The Great Racism Hoax.” I named it this way NOT because I believe racism doesn’t happen, but rather because I believe it happens to everyone. And, no matter how much we protest otherwise, every single one of us wrestles with this to some degree or another. Let me know what you think.

Will Resume Blogging August 18th

Dear friends,

I am heading into an unusally busy season for my work as a pastor and I’m finding it hard to write quality material while focusing on my ministry at CCV.

I’ve decided to take a blogging hiatus until Monday, August 18th, to focus on CCV-related activities. When things let up I’ll begin posting again.

I’ll see you then.

Do You Believe Adam And Eve Were Actual Historical People?

HominidOne of the important questions being discussed by theologians today is what we should do with Genesis 1 and 2. Were Adam and Eve actual people, or were they meant to be archetypes of sort?

Before 1859, the year Charles Darwin’s Origin of Species was published, this was a discussion in which few people engaged. The biblical account was taken at face value by most in the West.

“What?” I asked.

“I really appreciate the gift, but aren’t wives supposed to give these to their husbands?” she replied.

That gift sort of set the pace for the next twenty years. [Read more...]

Does This Please God?

Pleasing GodThis is the only question that matters.

If you’ve managed to make everyone in your life happy, but you’ve failed to please God in the process, you’ve failed, period.

If you’ve disappointed everyone in your life, including yourself, but pleased God in the process, you’re a success, period.

In the end pleasing God is all that matters.

That’s why Ephesians 5:10 says, “Find out what pleases the Lord.”

Because everything else is secondary.

Everything.
