Raising Selfless Kids In a Self-Centered World

"[Parenting today] is harder,... the oversexualization of our culture is just insane. And the self-centeredness, the entitlement nature that we have. I did a piece for The Wall Street Journal not long ago about Kim Kardashian. She's got a new book coming out, it's called Selfish. And it's all photos of herself. And I think what a terrible legacy to leave behind." Read more HERE

67 Surprising Things Not Found in the Bible; How Many Can You Guess?

If you thought you could find that passage in the Bible, you may want to look in Hezekiah 1:8 (for those still lost on this, Hezekiah isn't a book)... Benjamin Franklin was the man behind that quote. Here are 66 other things you may have thought were in the Bible, but are actually…

Quit whining about church: 4 Lame Excuses People Give for Leaving Their Church

The problem with my old church was ...  That’s a phrase you will only hear in the modern, Western church—particularly in the United States. In first-century Jerusalem, if you didn’t like the music, the pastor or the amount of perfume Sister Bertha wore, you had to stay and work it out. Where else would you go? Disclaimer: What I’m about to say has nothing to do with people who are far from God. I’m writing it…

Forgiveness. Sometimes it’s rough, but worth it and there are two great benefits of truly forgiving others.

There are certain theological words that, despite being common among Christians, are so persistently misunderstood by our non-Christian neighbors that a lot of explanation—and, usually, correction—is necessary. Think of words like “redeem” or “glorify” or “Trinity.” If you don’t go to church, you don’t use those words … unless you’re talking about church people. Read more HERE

What is God’s calling for you, in your current job?

As Christians, we are stewards of the resources God gives us for serving the human community. Our vocations are one avenue for doing God’s work in the world. Stewardship is the cultivation of resources for God. The Bible tells us that one of the most important resources God has given us is our gifts, aptitudes, talents and abilities. One of the sacraments of the medieval church was the Sacrament of Holy Orders, which divided the…
