Jesus: Not Progressive Enough?

I first heard about Progressive Christianity as a “thing” about a week ago, and I had a strong reaction to it. I did some more research and stumbled upon this: a series of affirmations, or doctrines. I want to engage with these ideas for a bit. Some of them are extremely attractive, on an emotional...

A Few Thoughts on Noah

I went to visit my cousin and his wife this last weekend, which meant I got to visit their church. I always enjoy visiting a different local community of believers, if only to experience a different portion of the body of Christ. The sermon was on the Genesis account of Noah and the flood, and the preacher...

Is the Bible Really Enough?

Sometimes people say that the Bible is the only book we need to fulfill the Christian life. Ultimately it must be said that even less than the Bible is enough, which is really to say that something more than the Bible is enough: God himself. If God is not present here and now, if we cannot reliably consult...

“Christian” Music? Try Theological Hip-Hop

Yesterday, Christian hip-hop artist Shai Linne released a much-awaited album called The Attributes of God. The album can be purchased on its own (either via iTunes or Lampmode Recording’s website) or, at least during the pre-order period, alongside A.W. Pink’s book of the same name.

Earthen Vessels: Matt Anderson, Meet Bob.

A friend of mine once named his own body. He called it Bob, joking that, as it was separate from his soul, it deserved a name of its own. If he didn’t want to do something, he could ‘tell Bob to do it’ for him. This may have helped him clean his apartment more regularly, and it surely gave his...

Did John Write the Fourth Gospel? (Or, Should We Ask These Questions?)

Over at The Two Cities, John Dunne has written an interesting little article on whether or not John wrote the fourth gospel (the one we now call “John”). He posits, based on just a few pieces of evidence, that it was perhaps (and he does emphasize the word perhaps) Lazarus who wrote the gospel....

Social Justice, the Body of Christ, and the Reputation of Christians

Over at the Huffington Post, Zach Hunter has written a piece about his work in the area of human trafficking. At only 19–and having started his ministry when he was only 12–his track record likely puts many other believers to shame, so to speak. In this article, he speaks on the theological...

Bullying God

Over at Cogito Credo, a website I believe has content worth reading (and not just because I edit for them from time to time), C.E. Moore wrote a piece that is likely to cause some controversy, from the title alone.

Tim Tebow, Faith and Blasphemy

I won’t pretend to be an expert in the world of sports. I can tell you if a given team is at the professional or college level for most sports, and at one point I followed both baseball and basketball well enough to name specific players on my favorite teams, but aside from that I am not what anyone...

On the proper care and feeding of a church secretary

Hello, my name is Rachel, and I am a burnt out former church secretary. The Stuff Christians Like blog had a post on the church secretary, the most powerful person in the church some time ago.  It’s eerily accurate, but I laughed especially hard when I read this in the comments section: When the...
