Thou Shall Be Funny. . . Within Limits!

I occasionally enlist satirical or ironic wit to drive home my more salient points. Humor has a way of penetrating defenses and bypassing even the most formidable interior walls. Also, humor is really funny! Even the most astute and solemn theologian must come to grips with the origins of funny. Either all jokes rose from […]

I Will Not Bow Down!

“Dream big. . . Fail big!” That’s my motto. Actually, I don’t have a motto but if I were ever to consider a motto, that would be on my short list.

Christian Sex? From the Mundane to the Ecstatic!

I once heard about a Texas reverend who asked his mega church congregation to participate in a seven day sex challenge.

Osama Bin Laden is Dead. . . but the Cancer Remains

“The surgery was a success.  We removed a large, cancerous tumor.  Osama bin Laden is dead.” Did you get all the cancer? “No, but we did remove a substantial part. However, we know that there are other tumors, there are other cancerous cells still actively at work.” Will we be able to remove the rest […]

If I have not love, I gain nothing.

God wants to guard your heart. He desires to protect you from pursuing a path that will hurt yourself and others. He is asking you to consider his way, his perspective. God is reality. He is the author of beauty, love, and life. God knows us better than we know ourselves. God sees, God knows, […]
