Getting to Know You

This year my blog has gained readers, so I thought I’d try something new.

I want to know more about who’s reading. The more I know about you, the more I can tailor the blog to help you.

I created this 5-minute survey to get your feedback. I hope you’ll take a moment and provide your thoughts. It’s really valuable to me.

Click here to tell me more about yourself.

This will help YOU too!

  • I’m going to read and think about every response.
  • You’ll get better writing from me.
  • You’ll get less articles you DON’T want, and more you DO want.
  • You’ll have a big influence on the direction I go with the blog.

Click here to take the 5-minute survey.

I really appreciate you doing this! I’m looking forward to your response.

Blessings,

How to Criticize while Maintaining Humility

I engaged a Christian leader on Twitter the other day.

Christianity and ISIS: Toward a Better World Pt. 3

Liberals and neoconservatives do not end ISIS because they have accepted the moral code of self-sacrifice.

As demonstrated in The Iraq War, American leadership has accepted the idea that, since in modern war zones it is impossible to tell enemies apart from civilians, American soldiers must be sacrificed in order to spare the killing of civilians. What does this policy of “just war” represent, but a denial of reality?

6 Exhortations to Serve

A Christian is a worker and a servant. Here are six biblical exhortations to serve. Like the servants in the parable of the talents, we work to share in our master’s blessings!

1. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works… that we should walk in them (Eph 2:10).
