What is killing Christianity? pt 1

March 4, 2013 by

What’s killing Christianity in America? Let me explain that a little bit. Is Christianity really under attack? Fox News seems to think so, some radio hosts think so, some writers and bloggers definitely think so. They site legislation that “limit’s our rights”, they see it as a form of legal persecution. They talk about how […]

Complementarian vs. Egalitarian (pt. 3) – Egalitarian

October 11, 2012 by

Egalitarianism…weeeeooooo!! More fun! (see the first two of the series here: Part one: The beginning Part two: Complementarian)   Egalitarian means “equal”…itar…ian… Well, “egal” means equal in french.

In the course of my life I have attended, been part of, and served at churches of different sizes, from a couple internships at 1,200+ member churches to a few weeks with a house church. I have seen some huge productions done fairly well, and I have seen groups of believers meet on the fly […]

Ok, so if you were unaware this is one of the “third rail” topics of discussion. Meaning you don’t touch it unless […]

Insular theological communities

It is common for like-minded people to group together. This is true in education, politics, and religion; among every other category we can come up with. While there are valid reasons theological groups should pool together it can be deadly for groups to become so insular that they ignore or reject those that are different […]

Christians at War

Christian life is war, a seemingly endless series of battles. It begins at the moment of conversion, maybe before. When we accept our salvation we receive the Holy Spirit and the fight begins in earnest. Before that we could have been content to serve our sin nature and not fight against the things that enslave […]
