I Do

The idea of autonomy is attractive. One of the biggest barriers to belief in God is that we don't want to need anyone. But what if the idea of autonomy is really the illusion of autonomy?

Gods of the No Testament

Do you have religious doubts? When your prayers go unanswered, do you wonder if God exists? Does science make God seem unnecessary?

Before you abandon your faith, consider this: What if the god you’re walking away from never existed to begin with?

In the Meantime: Comfort Zone

When we’re in the midst of pain and suffering, it can feel like we’ll never be happy again, nothing good can come from our circumstances, and there’s no reason to continue living. But those are lies. God can redeem, use, and work through our pain. And when he does, we eventually have the opportunity to comfort others. There is a “Fellowship of Suffering.” People who’ve suffered are uniquely equipped and qualified to comfort people who are suffering.

In the Meantime: Believe it or Not

Jesus told his followers that unavoidable trials aren’t aberrations; they are expectations. They can actually serve a beneficial purpose. Why? Because God can redeem, use, or work through the undeserved, unavoidable, circumstantial trials in our lives. But in order for that to happen, we have to believe and persevere.

In the Meantime: Yes You Can

What do you do when there’s nothing you can do? Relationally, financially, professionally, physically, or academically, It just is what it is. There’s nothing you can do to change your situation. Challenging circumstances can make you jealous or resentful. They can make you angry with God. They can breed discontentment. But the problem with discontentment is that it can drive you in self-destructive directions that will eventually leave you with regret. So, what is the secret of finding contentment even when times are tough?

In the Meantime: A Purpose and a Promise

Every once in a while, we run into people stuck in unchangeable, unalterable, in-the-meantime circumstances who get to the place where they’re able and willing to receive their circumstances, their afflictions, their illnesses, their losses, and their disabilities as coming from the hand of their heavenly Father. How do these people maintain extraordinary faith despite extraordinarily difficult circumstances? Where do they find the peace that characterizes their lives

In the Meantime: A New Normal

What do we do when our circumstances are so challenging there’s no way forward and no way out? We have problems for which there seem to be no solutions. We have questions without answers. During times like these, we’re tempted to run or give up. We’re tempted to give in to jealousy, resentment, and anger . . . especially anger toward God. That’s because when life gets hard, it feels like God is absent, apathetic, or angry. But what if he isn’t? Is it possible to hang on to joy, hope, and patience in the meantime?

Prepared: Good God?

There’s one question about God that elicits the most emotion, but has no emotionally satisfying answer. If God is good, why is there so much suffering in the world? If God were all-powerful, he could eliminate suffering. If God was loving, he would eliminate suffering. So, is he unable or unwilling?

Prepared: Reliable Witness

If you’re a Christian, be prepared to defend your decision to follow Christ. Be prepared to defend your hope or confidence in Christ. You believe that Jesus died for your sins and rose from the grave. That’s amazing! But you don’t have to believe it because the Bible says so. It’s better than that . . . .

Prepared: Hope on the Ropes

One of the most frustrating things about being a Christian is when someone asks you a question about what you believe. If you had fifteen minutes of undivided attention, you could answer. But what are you supposed to say in just a few seconds? How do you defend your faith without losing your mind?

Doubt Not - The N Commandments

Doubt Not - The N Commandments

Wouldn’t it be great to have a faith with no doubts? But most believers wrestle with doubt at some level. We face circumstances that don’t add up. We see suffering and injustice in the world. Doubt grabs our minds and emotions. We wonder if we’re just making excuses for a God who isn’t really there . . . or isn’t there in the way we assumed.

Jesus commanded: “Doubt not.” But when he said that, he didn’t mean for us to quit feeling doubtful. His command was more practical and life-changing.

Judge Not - The N Commandments

After Jesus’ death and resurrection, his followers couldn’t re-embrace a temple religion. They were left with Jesus’ odd assortment of commandments—impossible to imagine before the resurrection but made possible by the resurrection. These commandments would fuel a movement that changed the world. 

Perhaps the most popular commandment among those who don’t follow Jesus is “judge not.” It’s the one Christians are most often accused of violating. It’s also one of the most misunderstood of Jesus’ commands.

Worry Not - The N Commandments

The early Christian church was a “resurrection religion”—it was motivated less by a set of rules than by the event of Jesus’ death and resurrection. During his earthly ministry Jesus initiated a New Covenant based on love instead of rules. But that doesn’t mean he threw out the rules. In fact, he passed along an odd assortment of new commandments that sounded unreasonable . . . until he initiated and punctuated this New Covenant by dying on a cross and then rising from dead.

Sin Not - The N Commandments

People stumble in their faith and drift away from God because they get hung up on the historical accuracy of what’s in Genesis, Exodus, or other parts of the Bible. People struggle with Scripture because the church has done a terrible job of communicating the foundation of the Christian faith. It’s not the Bible. But if it’s not the Bible, what is it?

Fear Not - The N Commandments

During his earthly ministry, Jesus announced a new covenant, unhitched from the Old Testament. He initiated that new covenant when he died and rose from the dead. Suddenly, commandments that had sounded extreme when he gave them to his followers weren’t extreme at all.

 Thou shalt not fear. We all want to keep that commandment, but too often it feels impossible. There are legitimate reasons to fear some of the obstacles and setbacks in our lives. But if it were possible not to fear . . . that would change everything.

Brand New: Redefining Terms

Many of the things people resist about the church are things the church should have resisted. 

Jesus initiated the church to resist the temple model, which was focused on sacred places, sacred men, and sacred texts . . . on superstition. 

Jesus initiated a new covenant that is less complicated but far more demanding. It prompts us to ask, “What does love require of me?”

Brand New: What Love Requires

The arrival of Jesus signalled the end of the Temple Model and the beginning of something brand new—an approach to faith characterized by love of others.

The Temple Model is you-focused, but Jesus’ new covenant calls for a focus on the you beside you.

So, what is required if we want to follow Jesus’ example and radically love the people around us?
