THE CHURCH HURTING THE CHURCH

“There’s only one correct way to ‘do church’.” As arrogant as that might sound, it’s unfortunately, a prevalent way of thinking. It’s a mindset that has plagued me specifically and caused me to say/think things that are very harmful toward other churches.   In fact, one of the things I have had to repent of […]

WHAT IS LOVE?

When I was young, I thought I had the concept of love fully mastered. I was sure that at 18 years old I knew all I needed to know about love. Looking back on those years of my life, I recognize that I never fully grasped what it meant to love someone. For me, the […]

CAN A CHRISTIAN HATE?

The recent events in Charlottesville have put the idea of hate on full display.
