Christian Pick Up Lines (Part 2)

One of the most popular articles here on my blog is the one I wrote on Christian Pick Up Lines (click here to read that post). It gets nearly 200 unique readers every day from Google searches alone. Since this is the case, I've decided to provide a follow-up article that provides even more cheesy Christian Pick Up Lines. (Because...and let's face it, ladies...you can never hear too many pickup lines, ... Continue

What If God Hired A Search Committee To Find His Prophets, Apostles and Pastors?

What if God hired a search committee to find pastors like churches today do to find pastors? Maybe the results would come back like the following?

Pre-Conversion Sins And Your Pastor: What Does The Bible Say About it?

Do pre-conversion sins (sins committed before you're saved) matter in this life? Do our sins follow into eternity or have any implications for this life today, or is the slate wiped clean once we're saved? What does the Bible say about pre-conversion sins? I’m all for God’s amazing grace and---positionally---Christians are forever set free from the yoke and burden of our sins, but the question remains: ... Continue

Baptism: What Does The Bible Say About It?

I became the senior pastor of Faith Baptist Church just a few months ago. There are lots of exciting challenges and victories in pastoral ministry. One of the problems I don't mind ever having too many of is a mass of believers who want to get baptized. We're having a baptism service at our church on September 9th and we've got a problem. Too many people showed up for the baptism class to get baptized. ... Continue

Dying For The Glory Of God

When you woke up this morning, what did you do? Did you eat any breakfast? Maybe go to the gym? Hug your children? Go to work? Shoot some basketball? Take a walk? What did you do? Whatever you did, however, I assume you probably didn't think you would have to die today for the glory of God. No one ever wakes up, looks at their to-do list and says, "Ah yes, I have a conference call at 8:00 a.m. with a ... Continue

I am so proud to be able to say that I have never used a lame pick up line with a girl. (Please, don't ask my wife. Shh!) Christian pick up lines are funny, awkward, cheesy, and if I ever hear my sons use them when they get older I'll disown them in the blink of an eye!

What Does The Bible Say About Giving Your Money And Time Away?

The people of God are people who give their resources back to God and His people. At least they're supposed to be. Everything you have ever received comes down from your heavenly Father, and so God wants you to be marked as a person who gives. Question: Are you a giving person? Writing about the many churches throughout Macedonia, the apostle Paul boasted that they were an extremely giving bunch of ... Continue
