The Final Word Has Not Been Spoken!

We just celebrated the apex of Christian beliefs – the resurrection of Jesus (Easter Sunday).  On Good Friday, Jesus cried out from the cross, “It is finished.”  From his perspective, everything that he came to do was now finished.  He came to be sacrificed for the sins of the world and after unbelievable torture and

What if the Adulterous Woman in John 8 was Transgender?

I love the story of the adulterous woman found in John chapter 8 of the Bible.  It is a magnificent picture of God’s scandalous grace. But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. 2 Early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people were coming to Him; and He sat down

The God Who Gets His Hands Dirty

True Christianity is not clean, tidy and sanitized.  There are many within the church that would like folks to believe it’s that way.  They come up with nice, neat answers to life’s complex problems.  They have developed cute slogans to help with challenging issues.  Everything fits into a nice, neat faith package. But life doesn’t

Why You Haven’t Committed the Unforgiveable Sin (book review)

But I’ve also seen some people commit their lives to

Jesus, a Pharisee and a Sinner

In Luke 7:36-50, we find a very interesting story.  It’s where a woman, whom Luke addresses as a sinner, anoints Jesus’ feet with ointment and washes his feet with her hair.  All this happens while Jesus is eating at the home of a Pharisee.  There’s some interesting things to note here.  The first of them

Celebrating or Rejecting Jesus

In Luke 8:26-40 we find a story about Jesus delivering a man possessed by many demons.  This man was in really bad shape. Jesus helps this man and it’s interesting to see how the people, who knew this man, reacted to Jesus. First of all, Jesus reconstructed this man’s life. This man lived in the

Against All Hope

What do you do when you run out of hope? As a follower-of-Christ I have been in some situations where I felt hopeless.  Now, that’s a problem because as a follower-of-Christ I should be full of hope.  But I must be honest and say that I haven’t always been that way.  My oldest daughter is
