The Bible Doesn’t Call Us to Host Dinner Parties | A Discussion About the True Meaning of Hospitality

More than once recently, a young mom with a bunch of little kids in tow has lamented to me that she's falling behind on her job as a Christian... ...Because she's not hosting dinner parties. Well-known Christian authors have published books about the importance of having dinner at a table and inviting many people to… Continue reading The Bible Doesn’t Call Us to Host Dinner Parties | A Discussion About the True Meaning of Hospitality

 The Stumbling Block Modesty Myth

I have not been shy about my criticism of the modesty culture or of the movement's misuse of scripture to back up its position. I recently stumbled upon an excellent article that outlines the misuse of scripture and how those verses that they misuse should be applied to our lives. Accurate Bible application to our lives… Continue reading  The Stumbling Block Modesty Myth

Christians, Stop Worrying About What the Culture Does!

Christians like to act like the current generation is the first to ever face a culture that is pro-abortion and pro-homosexuality. As if no one has ever dealt with these types of problems before.  As if the world has fallen so far from the morality that once existed. As if extreme sins did not exist… Continue reading Christians, Stop Worrying About What the Culture Does!

Friday Crucifixion: Why It Matters 

I think people who want to take scripture at face value are drawn to the idea of a Wednesday crucifixion. I commend them for desiring to not simply accept whatever is tradition.

Case in point: the oldest book in the Bible, the… Continue reading Fairweather Faith: the Myth of Prosperity Gospel

It’s Not a Sin to Be Untidy

I was so sick I couldn't walk.  I was physically unable to clean. My physical condition did not make me less godly simply because it prevented me from cleaning my house.  My dirty house was in fact evidence of what God was doing in my life at that very moment. We must be careful not… Continue reading It’s Not a Sin to Be Untidy

It’s Not the Government’s Job to Love Your Neighbor for You

A common problem in our Christian culture today is expecting the government to act like a Christian individual. God gave Christians a different purpose and a different role than He gave governments. For example, a government was called to “execute wrath” whereas a Christian is commanded to “put away all wrath.” These ideas are diametrically opposed to… Continue reading It’s Not the Government’s Job to Love Your Neighbor for You

The Modesty Myth

Ever since I was old enough to be aware of clothing styles, I have heard Christians make an issue of modesty.  Modesty, as they used the word,  had to do with how a person was dressed, if enough of their body was covered for them to be sufficiently covered. Depending on who's defining it, it… Continue reading The Modesty Myth
