Stop Acting Like Your Politics Can Make You Righteous

"I support more federal funding for education. And I support more federal and state funding for paid maternity leave." "I want the government to lower its taxation of its citizens.

30 Seconds On the Gospel

There is no greater force for good in the world than the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It changes men from the bones out. It alters what they love and why. It makes men right with God so they can in turn be right with their neighbors. It instills reckless love, unshakeable peace, hope that will... Continue Reading →

To the Lost and Abused

You are not forgotten.  You are not irrelevant.   This world of sin and sinners is often a place where young girls are sexually abused.  Where little boys are ignored by their fathers or beaten by their fists.  Where the small or disadvantaged are trampled by the anger or selfishness of warped men with warped...
