I asked myself the same questions as I thought of writing this blog. My answer? Because I care, because … Continue reading Racism, Riots, and Religion: Why a Real Revolution in America will Only Come Through Revival.
I’ve been told for years to keep politics and religion separate. If you’re religious you’ve probably been told to do the same. As a “religious leader”, I am often encouraged to stick to a “separation of church and state”, and the past decade as a Christian minister, I have been more than happy to tow … Continue reading “STOP MIXING YOUR RELIGION WITH MY POLITICS!” Why the religious now have no choice but to get political.

This Christmas season I've been overwhelmed by the way that my God, is a God who replaces. My wife and I are full-time … Continue reading My “Replacement God”- A Christmas Blog
Today I spoke at one of the most amazing Kingdom minded churches I have ever experienced. And to many, what occurred in that church would make no sense.

That's right, I was invited by a church to share … Continue reading Why Kingdom Minded Churches Just Don’t Make Sense
The Easter story reminds me of the price of freedom. When Jesus died for me and rose again he absorbed my sin, my death, my punishment. He paid the price for my freedom. I regularly come across people who say that because of Christ's death and the grace that this gives them, they are free … Continue reading Free from, not to
