God & Gun Control

Gun control is a hot topic guaranteed to ruffle someone’s feathers. It seems like everyone has a strong opinion on the subject. Since the deplorable Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, it has become a very emotional topic, and sadly, a very political issue. Naturally, as an American nationalist and strong believer in the Bill of […]

Puny Preaching

As a man, I like food. I mean, I really like food. Luckily I live in Louisville – a town with a great restaurant scene. For Valentines’ Day, Hannah and I tried a new restaurant. It looked like a fancy restaurant, and the online reviews were overwhelmingly positive. The waiters were well dressed and the […]

4 Signs You’re Not Growing as a Christian

I once heard someone remark, “I feel stagnant in my faith.” Is this possible? Can a Christian ever be ‘stuck’ in his/her spiritual growth? No. There is no such thing as a “stagnant” Christian.

A Note to Young Preachers (Like Me)

I’ve held a ministry-related office since I was a senior in high school (which wasn’t very long ago). Though I’m a preacher, I’m a young preacher. I’m still ‘green’ so to speak.

The Lord’s Church… A Democracy?

God knew what He was doing when He designed the church. His wisdom is profoundly obvious, especially when you observe congregations that do not respect His design (and their subsequent problems).
