Why There Are Rules

I’m having a very friendly email discussion with a friend right now. Some of the discussion has come around to me explaining why I have restrictions as to who can join me for evangelism.

My Brother Paul’s Response to Matthew Vines’ “40 Questions”

Random Acts of Kindness

Everything Else is Idolatry – BIG10 Championship

3 men from central Ohio traveled to Indianapolis for the Big 10 Championship game in 2014, but they didn’t go to watch the football: they went to preach Christ. Joe Conkle, Caleb Davenport and I went to Indy for this event. In a few hours, we handed out over 4000 tracts. I preached for 2 […]
