Friends, If I Unfriend You, Here’s Why

But please (especially to my Christian friends, I beg of you) please stop mocking, denigrating, demonizing and dehumanizing people who hold opposing positions.
scripture

5 Ways to ‘Feel’ Scripture

Scripture is cohesive, a great brilliant tapestry that is interwoven from the same fabric. Contrary to various theories both ancient and modern, God isn’t different from Old Testament to New, and Paul didn't invent a different Christianity from Jesus'.
stay

When Jesus Says ‘ Stay ‘

We all know that God calls many people to go. He calls them to leave behind all that is comfortable and familiar so they can minister in his name. But it’s clear that God also calls many to stay.
sex

Sex Is Not the Best Part of Life

You can find real joy in life without sex. Perhaps that may be for a chapter of your life—whether it’s because you are single or maybe something is not going right in your marriage. Is that painful and difficult?
cancel culture

Why Cancel Culture Is Not Enough

In internet-speak, cancel culture is the practice of withdrawing support for public figures, organizations, or churches after they did, said, or posted something considered objectionable or offensive.

Evangelicals Becoming Catholics: Former CT Editor Mark Galli

Though many Catholics left for more vibrant evangelical services, many miss the sense of awe and reverence seen in the liturgy of the church, as it “represented something sacred and beautiful.”

Ready to Go: Why Missions Is Important Right Now

Continue to work through the challenges of this season to lead your community forward with missions. Here's how.
captioning

Live Streaming PLUS Captioning Equals Deeper Church Engagement

The fastest-growing churches have already begun live-streaming their services as a way to grow, connecting with an audience that was not be able to physically attend due to distance, age, or disability, and that includes video with captioning.
thoughts

6 Ways to Stop Thinking Fearful Thoughts

If only getting rid of annoying, repeated thoughts was that easy. If only we could get the anxious thoughts plaguing our minds to go away, then maybe our anxiety would stop rearing its restless head.
text messaging

5 Ways Your Church Can Use Text Messaging to Reach More People

One reason why we’ve failed to reach this younger generation of people has to do with the way we communicate about who we are and what we believe. I'm talking about text messaging.
How to Keep Cherishing Your Spouse

How to Keep Cherishing Your Spouse

those who are able to sustain a cherishing marriage with an imperfect spouse (and of course there are no perfect spouses) meditate often on the kindness and grace of God; those who give up cherishing their spouse meditate often on the faults and failures of their spouse.
satan

Don’t Fear Satan, But Don’t Ignore Him, Either

Many Christians are totally unaware of Satan’s active role in their lives. They don’t pray much or stay close to God. They compromise with sin and give Satan a foothold. To which Peter says, Be alert!
authority

How to Pray for Those in Authority

In his encouragement to Timothy, Paul makes a bold statement that prayer, in various forms, should be made for all men, and urged this young pastor to pray for those in authority. Godless Emperor Nero was on the throne at that time. Yet, the believers were supposed to pray for him?
Brentwood Baptist Church

Same Address, Different Church

As I start my 30th year of ministry at Brentwood Baptist Church, people have been asking me to tell them the secret of a long-term ministry. A growing church will always demand their pastor to be the first one who grows. After all, no organization, not even a church, can ever outrun its leader.
perfectionism

How Perfectionism Makes You a Spiritual Quitter

When we allow our desire for perfectionism to shut us down spiritually, we are actually standing in our own way. We’re cutting ourselves off from our only hope for spiritual growth and formation, and we ultimately decide that if we can’t seek God in our own, “perfect” way, then we won’t seek Him at all.
die to yourself

Are You Really Supposed to Die to Yourself?

For years, there has been a silent message that most of us have been taught to accept. It is based on an idea that is portrayed as Biblical. The message is that in order to be a good Christian in any situation, no matter how hard, you must die to yourself.
just do it

Just Do It – What Your Church and Nike Have in Common

How many times do you think you've seen the Nike swoosh logo and read the phrase Just do it? A few hundred? A thousand? Imagine you asked your church this Sunday to fill in the tagline that goes under the swoosh logo—do you think 100% of people would be able to do it from memory?
mature disciple

Mature Disciple Making Gone Horribly Wrong

As you rebuild your definition of a mature disciple avoid the mistake of measuring discipleship by activity; church attendance, serving in a ministry, participation in a small group, Bible reading, quiet time.
marriage

Help! I’m Infatuated With Someone Other Than My Spouse

The first wrong response is to assume something is wrong with your marriage, in the sense that you need a new marriage. For us Christians, trouble in our marriage is more like finding out we have heart disease.
