When Christmas Songs Misrepresent Christmas

Some of our beloved Christmas songs take our eyes off Jesus, but even some of the sacred ones are not exactly scriptural in their content. To understand what happened on that first Christmas, we need to go back to the book.

Christmas Is in Need of Radical Reformation

In all the hustle and bustle of Christmas activity, it seems as if we lose Christ in the midst of it all. We must learn to slow down and quiet our souls if we can celebrate Jesus during this time.

The Failure of “My Truth”

A culture that defends its beliefs and behaviors on personal ideations of what feels true to an individual is one that is destined to fail. No matter how much “you do you,” you will ultimately have to make an account before God.

Why Pastors Should Post

Pastors can approach social media platforms as available pulpits by which to point others to Jesus. If they are growing personally, they should look for opportunities to share what they are learning.

The Church and the LGBTQ+ Community

As our society continually explores and emphasizes sexual variations, the Church must consider staying faithful to God’s Word while remaining loving to all people. As representatives of Jesus, we must display grace and truth to our closest relationships and the culture at large. 

Words Will Never Hurt Me

While the world was shocked that Will Smith struck Chris Rock at the Oscars, we can’t overlook the fact that words led to that moment. Our speech has great power as well – how are we using it?

Engaging Teenagers

People often talk about the unique challenges that teenagers bring. Whether you are a parent, mentor, or church leader trying to invest in the student generation, you must prioritize that which can inspire them to be all God has called them to be.

How Old Was the Earth on Day One?

Within broad groupings, the scientific community dates the Earth’s age as older than what biblical genealogies and sorts point to regarding as a timeline. Can these two coexist? Can we know the age of the Earth?

Inspecting Your Approvals

Whether or not we realize it, we are addicted to affirmation. So much of what we do is attempting to draw the attention of others. Social media gives us an unhealthy opportunity to be fulfilled simply by the number of interactions we receive. It’s time to go the second mile in inspecting your approvals.
