When I was a kid, my parents had a round, three-foot-deep pool in the backyard. We played a lot of games in that pool, but a recurring classic was to make a whirlpool. Water doesn’t spontaneously circle around. You need a drain, or you need some force applied around the outside edge. Five young boys […]
The problem with the church’s approach to sexual sin isn’t that we are too hard on it. I know from my own failings that being hard on sin is not really something the church does in general. The problem is we are so soft that no one is held accountable. And then things like this […]

The most common analysis of liberty I have heard in Christian churches and magazines reduces the concept to a slogan used by rednecks who want their guns, beer, and rebel flags.
