Peanut Butter, Bacon, and Loving Those Who Hate You

It is not easy loving people or even praying for those who persecute you or hate you. But that’s exactly what Jesus said to do in Matthew 5: “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so… Read more »

WBFFA: The Kind Of Man I Want My Daughters To Marry

Way before I started, I used to have a blog. It was called The Cornblog. I know, nice, right? Since I started this blog almost four years ago, I’ve blogged mostly about issues dealing with fallen pastors and how the culture is impacted. Well, I’ve decided to get greedy with my weekends and start freelancing them. It’s going to… Read more »

Gay Marriage, the Church, and the Jesus Response

I was so thankful yesterday to get a Facebook inbox message from a friend who was concerned about the current argument in America over gay marriage. Like many Christians, she was concerned about the moral failure of the country. She had been watching Facebook and so have I. I too, have seen many comments like, “Why don’t people see what… Read more »

The Pathetic Power of Unforgiveness: When “I’m Sorry” Isn’t Enough, Pt. 3

When we mess up and need forgiveness, one of the most frustrating things can be when people withhold that forgiveness. I’ve tried to outline some reasons people do that, but today I want to get into one of the really nasty things that can happen after someone grants a sort of half-hearted forgiveness. You know what I’m talking about. You’ve… Read more »

My Wife, “Fallen Pastor’s Wife” & Her Ministry

Allison is my sweet wife of three years. We have both tread the path of holiness since our fall, trying to do what is right. Are we always perfect? Nope. But we are here to serve those who fall. A while back she started a blog. It’s been inactive a while, but today, she wrote again, to tell our story…. Read more »

Southern Baptists, Sanctity of Life, and Rape in India

Over the past few days, I’ve been monitoring the stories in India of the rape of women there. It is a horrible scene. Apparently for years, women have been raped and their crimes have been covered up by the police. One story states, “in India rape has long been depressingly common.” The story has gotten some attention stateside, but in… Read more »

“Sexting”: Are There Rules?

My last post was intended to be a standalone blog post about “sexting“, or when people send messages to one another via messaging tools (text, Facebok, Twitter, etc.) with a sexual nature. I had a lot of people view that post, but I also had a friend of the site email me with some great questions that I thought I might… Read more »

“Sexting”: When It’s Okay

Seriously. This blog is biblically based. But it also has some warnings for everyone. I’m going to start with my own story. For those of you who don’t know, I fell in the ministry. I was a pastor of a church and I committed adultery. Afterwards, I wrote a book about it and interviewed pastors, experts, counselors, looking for common… Read more »

Chick-Fil-A and John Cena, Professional Wrestler

I’ve been ignoring this whole Chick-Fil-A thing online. The founder of the institution was interviewed and said he opposed marriage between same sex people. That was his opinion. Those who disagreed jumped on him and decided to boycott. The Christians decided to make 8/1 a day to support his business. You can read the story anywhere. Seriously. Anywhere. Online. Unless… Read more »

Finding Meaning At The End Of Life

I’ve always believed that no matter how long or how short your life is, as long as you are drawing a breath, God will use it for His glory. I saw it the other day in a dear friend. Those of you who know me well know who I’m referring to. An old friend who has been overcome with cancer…. Read more »
