Evolution – Science or Science Fiction?

This post is not intended to refute Evolution or promote Creationism. This post is merely an attempt to educate those of the flaws of thinking that Evolution is rooted in science — at least anymore so than any other theory of the origin of species.

Beyond the Box – Embracing an Open Future

One of my favorite podcasts (and pretty much the only Christian podcast I follow) is Beyond the Box. Basically a couple of heretic Jesus followers who are trying to “work out [their] salvation with fear and trembling” (Philippians 2:12).

Ed Stetzer has a great article over at Between The Times where he discusses the differences in today’s society and how we have moved away from a “tribal” culture which has largely been the glue that has held the SBC together. Stetzer believes, “we must look for something else to be the gravitational pull of…

Words Not Found in Scripture – Pastor

I have not done a Words Not Found in Scripture post in a while, so I decided to pull out a quick one for everyone. Today I would like to talk a little bit about the word “pastor”. In the modern Evangelical Christian Church the Pastor is basically the CEO. He runs the show, his…
