The Greatest Leadership Mind in the World

  Like Obi-Wan Kenobi, Dr. Dean Radtke may be the only hope left for the modern church as we know it. Yah, yah, I know…our hope is in Christ, but perhaps more than anyone I’ve ever witnessed, Dr. Radtke has harnessed the leadership principles of the Bible, specifically those of Jesus, and developed a usable […]

Since the release of my article, “The Shack:  A Story of Freedom or Force?”, I’ve received an almost constant stream of hate mail regarding the concerns that I expressed, not about the film itself nor even the book, but rather the beliefs of the author, which he himself expressed clearly in his new theologically driven […]

On Claiming Early Church Fathers (Part 1)

  Recently, I’ve witnessed a string of universalist pastors and teachers making claims that many well known early church fathers were in fact universalists themselves.  As a long time student of the philosophical writings of early Christian thought, I have been quite perplexed to witness these claims and see so many of them go unquestioned.  […]

The Human Connection Part 2, Day 1

When he came down from the mountainside, large crowds followed him.   A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.”  Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” Immediately he was cured of his leprosy.”  […]

Week 13 Devotional: The will of God

Meanwhile his disciples urged him, “Rabbi, eat something.”  But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.” Then his disciples said to each other, “Could someone have brought him food?” “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work.” […]
