The Need for Compelling Christians

Salt Cross

When you are with a compelling person, you know it. Compelling people a have an effect, and at times unexplainably so.

Competitive Stewardship in a Culture of Consumption Part 1

Competition cropped

Competitive stewardship starts with asking probing questions. How does God desire me to live? What limit should my lifestyle have in order to prepare people for eternity?

6 Reasons Why You Should Vote

Should Christians not vote? First, to not vote is ingratitude. It is to say what I have now is not worth preserving or improving.

Over the last 12 months, I have been developing a QA approach to teaching my kids important Christian truths.
