Confessions part 2

January 26, 2011


It gets in the way of my faith when… Christianity start to look like a culture of its own. I feel like we have seriously lost our way in America. Christianity has become less about knowing and loving Jesus and much more about culture. Personally, I genuinely follow Christ but I don’t fit the cookie […]

Will We Continue To Ignore?

October 12, 2010


Recently, I attended Catalyst (a conference for young Christian leadership) and heard some amazing messages from folks like Francis Chan, Scott Harrison (founder of CHARITY: WATER) and the Bishop T.D.

I’m A Recovering Pharisee

His sermon became less and less about Jesus and the Holy Scriptures and more and more about the evils of Obama.  Now, I openly admit to being somewhat of a […]

Some Thoughts On Labels

January 12, 2010


Labels are interesting aren’t they? If we step back and observe, we can discover that just about everything we encounter has a label. Food products are labeled based on nutritional value, rather it is organic or not, rather it is kosher or not. Cars are labeled based off of emissions levels and gas usage. Music, […]

Ban Against Penguins?!

October 1, 2009


I was prowling the internet today looking for the flavor of the day. Then suddenly I found an article about of all things: gay penguins. It appears there is much controversy about a book about two male penguins who are raising a young penguin. Just in order to clear things up, I am a Christian […]
