Over the next few months, thousands of students in the Jackson area will graduate from high school and start the rest of their lives. Are they prepared? Can they flourish? Can we say that Christian men and women are leaving our churches and ministries equipped for life after high school? I’m not specifically talking about graduates being prepared for difficult professors and stressful job interviews. But the question...

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.

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...

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...

Once, as an experiment, the great scientist Isaac Newton stared at the image of the sun reflected in a mirror. The brightness burned into his retina, and he suffered temporary blindness. Even after he hid for three days behind closed shutters, still the bright spot would not fade from his vision. “I used all means to divert my imagination from the sun,” he writes, “But if I thought...

Last August, our family moved to Mississippi from the Raleigh-Durham area, one of the fastest growing metroplexes in the country. One thing we do not miss is the traffic. Few things were more annoying than sitting daily in the line of cars at a near standstill on I-440, watching some car come streaking down the passing lane, only to cut in ahead of the other cars just before...

There are few subjects in the history of the human race more feared and less studied than the wrath of God. In our day, the wrath of God is rarely mentioned from the pulpit (or the pew). Instead, most people balk at the idea that God would ever be angry. One theologian at the turn of the century summarizes well our popular view of God: “A God without...

On Thursday, February 27th, David Robertson and Ted Ammon debated the question of whether or not someone can be morally good without God.  From the Christian perspective, it was a treat to see Robertson, a fellow believer, using the opportunity to major on man’s sin, which ultimately pointed those of us in the room to the need for a gracious God to provide a Savior.

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...

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.”
