Christ Follower…

So it took less than a day for some Christians to begin to point the finger at the “other”, blaming them for the Boston Marathon bombing. Here is one by “Christ Follower” , “Outspoken Conservative”(like Jesus, I guess), and very proud that she is blocked by several public figures (I can only imagine it has … More Christ Follower…

At The Cliff

I think, no I am pretty certain, that Evangelicalism is standing on a  precipice. Some, like one of my favorite writers, Becky Garrison, have written off this segment of the church as having died. She and others have good reason for that assessment. But I remain a tiny bit more optimistic. I believe that if the Evangelical … More At The Cliff

I don’t remember when … More Losing Focus…

Questions…     Why does it seem that EVERY TIME I write concerning unconditional love or God’s grace here or on other social media, or even have a conversation about it, someone invariably tells me that people need to hear the “truth”. And that by teaching grace and unconditional love in Jesus alone, I am encouraging/facilitating  sin or … More Truth About The Truth

Litmus Test….

Over the years we have seen a number of cultural/political/religious issues attached to the Gospel message to help us identify someone as in or out of the christian club. These issues pit person against person, church against church. Bothers and sisters in Christ minimizing and demonizing  those that do not agree or believe exactly the … More Litmus Test….
