One of Friendship Church’s elders has just started a blog…or at least I just found it, one or the other!  In any sense this is a great post and you should read it!  Laziness.

4 Reasons I’m a Better Leader Than I “Should Be”

I am often asked leadership and/or pastoral leadership questions.  Usually it is either preceded by or followed with some type of compliment regarding my leadership.  Now, while I am very appreciative of compliments (I’m not sure of anyone who isn’t) I must be very transparent in saying that my ability to lead well extends light-years […]

An Open Letter To My Right-Leaning Friends!

Dear Friend, I am, the same as you, disappointed at how this election turned out on a national level. I understand your frustration, and I understand your concerns. But, those concerns are only temporary. The Apostle Peter was beaten, imprisoned, tortured, and eventually crucified, yet when he thought about all those things in comparison to […]

An Open Letter To My Left-Leaning Friends!

Dear Friend, I am thankful first of all that this election is over, and I hope that the man that you believe in will do all that you had hoped he would do. I do not mean this sarcastically in any way, shape or form, for I know YOUR heart. I know that you truly […]

Ha, fooled ya! I really hope that after reading my blog, listening to my messages, and talking with me that you know by now I’m not going to tell you who you should vote for. I will however give you a Biblical filter through which you can look at the candidates, decipher which one most […]

Part 3: What About Gay Marriage?

To get the ball rolling I’m not going to talk about whether or not Gay Marriage should be legal, illegal, banned, or supported.  This series of posts is written from a Biblical not political standpoint.  The one and only thing I’ll say in that regard is this; you cannot legislate morality, at the same time you […]

Part 2: A Biblical Response to Homosexuality (and every other sin)

In the public discourse homsexuality has generally either been vilified or glorified.  It’s been vilified to the point where it is almost seen as the unforgivable sin, or an irreversible course.  It’s been glorified as an acceptable “alternative lifestyle”, or seen as just two people in love.  Neither is Biblically accurate.  So, what does the Bible say?

Extreme “Christian” Views on Homosexuality: Part 1

  Okay, I’m certain I’ll get a little hate mail on this one, but at least read through the whole thing before you jump to a conclusion one way or the other. This is a topic that is highly volatile and charged with emotion.  There are some “Christians” (I put it in quotes because that [...]

The Demagoguing Democrat VS. The Rancorous Republican

No, I’m not talking about Mitt Romney and Barack Obama!  I’m talking about all those people on Facebook and Twitter who think it is there personal calling in life to force everyone to see things their way, and if they cannot accomplish this, then they attack, belittle, defame, and yes, even question their faith. As [...]

A Review: Taking The Lid Off Your Church – Tony Morgan

Tony Morgan is one of my all-time favorite church leadership/health/growth gurus!  He’s definitely solidified that standing with his latest book Taking the Lid off of Your Church, available on Kindle for a paltry $2.99.  Ever since I read the great little e-book The Leisure Suit Trap, which by the way is still available with several [...]
