Do I Have to Go to Church?

People search this question on Google about 30 times a week…  If you’re one of those 30 people, this post is for you!

If you’re at church 3-4 times each week, you’ll also benefit from what I have to say. You’re probably wondering how to help other people become more consistent, and this post applies.

God’s Gifts & Technology?

[guestpost]This is a guest-post from my friend Nate Curry.[/guestpost]

This post is merely something to get the 21st century believer thinking about or re-thinking his or her beliefs on the topic of God’s Spiritual gifts. Being the technology guru that I am I see a major correlation between technology and the way God communicates to us.

You’re a Legalist If You Draw a Clear Moral Line?

In the Gospels we see Jesus drawing one clear moral line after another. But today we are told it is the legalist or the Pharisee who draws moral lines.

Thus, when pastors release the Nashville Statement or similar statements of belief, the accusers salivate. The wolves descend.

“How dare you agree with Scripture.”

“It’s [the current year]!”

“How un-Christlike.”

What are we to make of this?

Learning to See God’s Goodness

For people to see the Lord—that’s my passion. Our most pressing need is to see and understand God.

When we know what God is like and why he is good, that’s when we’ll have:

  • Changed hearts
  • Greater faith
  • True obedience

How do we see what God is like? We look to divinely inspired Scripture to see his words and deeds.

Christianity, Humanism, and Civilization

It was just a trailer for a video game. But to me it was something more. The music came from one of my favorite pieces ever. The visuals and narration portrayed the striving of humanity to better itself.

The striking last lines of the video:

“There’s no end to our imagination and no limit to civilization.”

It’s a compelling vision for humanity. It’s also incomplete. The story of mankind needs a hero, and that hero can only be God himself.
