“No one understands; no one seeks for God."  (Romans 3:11 ESV)

The great Christian apologist G.K. Chesterton once responded to a request from The London Times, in which the newspaper asked a simple question, “What is wrong with the world?” Chesterton supplied an equally simple answer. He wrote, “Dear Sirs: I am. Sincerely yours, G.K. Chesterton.”

As Chesterton’s response makes clear...

I love July 4th. It was a hugely important holiday in my family growing up, as both my grandfather and his brother, my great uncle, risked their lives protecting our freedoms during World War Two. These men made sure my brothers and I understood the high cost of freedom so that we would never take it for granted. As thankful as I am for the freedoms we enjoy...

Most of us recall the name Todd Beamer. He was the man who led the passengers against the hijackers of Flight 93, which crashed over Shanksville, PA on September 11, 2001. Shortly before his tremendous act of bravery, which would save many lives, he called his wife. They prayed the Lord’s Prayer together and he concluded, “Jesus, help me. Let’s roll.”

Mark Twain, one of America’s greatest writers, was also a lifelong opponent of Christianity. He called it the “slaughtering religion,” because of the bible’s teaching on Christ’s blood atonement. His wife, Olivia Langdon, was reared in a Christian home. When she met Twain, he downplayed his lack of faith. Eventually they were married and he returned to his former contempt of Christianity. Soon, she left the church. At...

One of the biggest crises facing our country today is not who the next president will be (though, we should be concerned about that). This crisis goes far beyond party affiliations, class, or race. It is the crisis of fatherhood, or better stated, the crisis of the absence of fathers.

“And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done.” (Genesis 2:2 ESV)

Most of us do not rest well. And not just at night, not just when we try to sleep and can’t. In general. Most of us do not know how to vacation, to...

Today is Memorial Day, a day when we remember those who have paid the ultimate price for our freedoms. Both my grandfather and his brother, my great uncle, served in World War II and lost many friends. For that reason, they always held this day in high regard and that left a lasting impression on me. So as we fire up the grills today and gather to enjoy...

Have you ever heard the phrase, “That person is so heavenly-minded that he is no earthly good?” There may be some truth to this slogan, for some Christians have the mentality that since heaven is our true home, this present life doesn’t matter all that much. However, at its root, the Bible teaches us the exact opposite of this phrase. This morning, let’s take time to think about...

Monday Morning Quarterback

A Biblical commentator tells the story of God’s love from an incident that occurred during World War I. During the darkest times of that conflict, a conflict that took the lives of a shocking number of English sons, a man took his little boy out for a walk at night. The boy noticed that some of the houses had stars in the windows. “That comes from this terrible...
