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 […]

Guest Post from Eleni Schuurman – The NT of The Passion Translation releases on the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation.

I can’t wait to read the new Passion Translation of the New Testament! For those of you who don’t know, Bible teacher, linguist and former missionary, Dr. Brian Simmons served as the lead translator on this new literary marvel. He’s already released the Psalms, Proverbs and Song of Songs and today (October 31, 2017) the […]

The Christian’s Guide To Marriage and Divorce

Let me begin by stating that by writing this I am not trying to create a law for the church, and neither am I trying to state an opposing argument to the teachings of others on the subject of marriage and divorce.  Instead, I’m responding to a need.  Divorce is epidemic.  I’ve heard statistics of […]

Having spent collectively more than […]

From Porn to Reborn

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 […]

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 […]

  As a Christian it may be less controversial at the moment to offer an opinion about current politics, than it is to express one’s thoughts of the film, The Shack, based upon WM. Paul Young’s book of the same title.  Honestly, I, myself, have tried very hard to avoid sharing my two cents about […]
