The Time Sean Hannity Completely Caught Me Off Guard

I was ready – or so I thought.  Landing a guest like Sean Hannity on my podcast was no small task, even on a platform as strong as Faithwire.com, and I wanted to be prepared for anything.  Fortifying my chances of podcast success, I surrounded my broadcast station with 2 large whiteboards filled with notes […]

My One-on-One Interview with Will Graham

You’d be hard pressed to find someone more influential in the Christian world than Rev. Billy Graham. He’s led millions to Jesus, advised multiple presidents, and has a longevity in ministry that spans 70 years and counting. But his legacy is bigger than that. It’s also been passed down in his children – and their […]

From Porn to Reborn

  In 2006, Crissy Outlaw left the porn industry. Now, she helps other women do the same. Crissy speaks out about the harmful effects of pornography. Her story has been featured on platforms, such as, ABC’s Nightline, GQ Magazine, The Huffington Post, CBN, Playboy, and Christianity Today. Recently I had the chance to sit down […]

Legalism or Progressivism: Which is Deadlier to Faith?

  Since 2002, I’ve been advocating for religion-free Christianity, as well as warning of the dangers of allowing legalism to invade our faith-walk. Over the years, I’ve been accused by fundamentalists of being “soft on sin,” preaching “greasy grace,” and failing to understand the importance of the Law. I’ve been physically assaulted on two separate […]

Making Sense of Psalm 119:71

In my pursuit to reveal God’s goodness and true character to the world, I often spend more time studying passages of scripture that seem to contradict his goodness, than those that validate it.  To put it another way – I focus on studying what I call the “problem passages”, so that I can understand them […]

Lent: What it really says about our understanding of the Cross.

  Outside of the Vatican or maybe Boston, you’d be hard pressed to find a city with stronger Catholic roots than my hometown of South Bend, Indiana.  As such, about this time every year, I usually receive a lot of questions about the observance of Lent and whether believers should participate in the practice. Before […]
