One wish I have for the American Church

If they saw the faith of Barronelle...

If I could have one wish, it might surprise you what it is. It’s not a Presidential election that turns out the way I want. It’s not unbridled liberty. It’s not wealth or fame. It’s one thing. I would wish for the opportunity to introduce you to a precious woman named Barronelle Stutzman. I could have anything… […]

Until They Cry “Uncle”…

Growing up, it was not unusual to find yourself in a harmless scuffle with a friend or sibling. Why the wrestling match started could be attributed to any one of a number of playground offenses or slights. Back “in the day” when such things were generally innocuous and the normal rite of passage for kids, […]

Don’t force Christians to compromise their faith

A Collision at the Crossroads

The state motto of Indiana is The Crossroads of America. It appears as if a collision is about to take place at that crossroads and there is no way to stop it. Two irreconcilable worldviews are headed for that intersection this legislative session and both are claiming its most basic rights are at stake. The […]

The Relationship between Prophets and Kings

FIVE Keys in Making Politicians More Accountable

Then Nathan said to David, “You are the man! Thus says the LORD God of Israel: ‘I anointed you king over Israel, and I delivered you from the hand of Saul. I gave you your master’s house and your master’s wives into your keeping, and gave you the house of Israel and Judah. And if […]

RUN TO THE BATTLE

"Five Important Points for Pastors Engaging the Culture"

“It happened in the spring of the year, at the time when kings go out to battle, that David sent Joab and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the people of Ammon and besieged Rabbah. But David remained at Jerusalem.” ‭‭II Samuel‬ ‭11:1‬ ‭NKJV‬‬ I recently attended a specially called meeting […]

The gay and lesbian lobby in Indiana has made it perfectly clear that they are not satisfied with the “fix,” and are now working hard to pass sexual orientation, gender identity (SOGI) laws around the state of Indiana with the ultimate goal of passing a statewide SOGI. People of faith know what this means. It is an attack on religious liberty. It’s a direct attack on people of faith.

Our Republican super-majority has chosen to remain silent when asked if they are willing to protect religious liberty in the State of Indiana, by voting NO to any attempt to pass a SOGI. Pastors gathered in mass a few months ago to publicly ask this question Now it’s time for you, the constituents to ask them the same question.

Call your Representative (574-232-9600), Senator (317-232-9400), and the Governor (317-232-4567), and ask them this question.

“Will you protect my God-Given religious liberties by opposing all efforts to create a special-protected class status for sexual orientation and gender identity?”

If they can’t answer it with a yes or no, then we have a problem.

Let us know what you find out!

FOUR (4) Precepts I Choose to Embrace in Determining Allies.

Understanding Unity in a time of Tyranny

It was a Saturday at the Abortion Mill when I was challenged to consider the concept of allies and adversaries. It had become my routine to spend some time on a Saturday preaching the Gospel and pleading with women and men not to abort their children. This Saturday was not unlike others as people from […]

FIVE (5) Imperatives for Christian Business Owners Living in the New Reality

Getting ahead of the Adversity Curve.

I just finished reading an article concerning a Texas law that was recently passed protecting pastors from being put in a position of violating their religious conscience or ministry after the disastrous SCOTUS decision on same-sex marriage. It was being hailed as a victory. I suppose if I were a pastor in Texas I could […]

It’s Time to Find a New Playbook

I am not a sports expert, but I know that almost every sport at some point in its history has a coach or owner that breaks out of the box of conventional thinking and transforms that sport with a new way of playing it. As a South Carolinian that is easily illustrated by our head […]
