This topic has fascinated me for a while. I won’t take you through the entire essay, as this fellow did, but I will call your attention to it. And urge you to look more into [[[Big History]]] …because as long as we teach history as a story of competing…

I keep hearing this tired refrain: “‘Jesus is Lord’ is the earliest creed.” They are pulling this phrase from 1 Corinthians 12.3 although they seem to miss the first part of said verse. But, honestly, it isn’t. There are more “creeds” than that in…

In the town of Fountain Hills, Arizona, 8 local churches have come together to preach a series of sermons about the differences between progressive “Christianity” and traditional Christianity. The above is from a newspaper ad taken out by the churches and…

Every July, some United Methodist in some jurisdiction, in some conference, in some congregation will lose a beloved pastor to the infection we call itinerancy. This disease is rampant among United Methodist Clergy and will continue to attack The United…
