Would Christ Call Someone Unchristlike?

I have a general sense that wherever possible we try to use Biblical terminology. This means we say words that people often find offensive. For example, we, as Christians, should not be afraid to call transgression of God’s law “sin,” rather than “a mistake” or “missing the best.” I think an area where this can […]

Western “that team up north” vs THE OSU Outreach Report

First off all, hat tip to Jason Marianna for reminding me that “THE” is all caps when referring to THE OSU. Saturday, September 26, 2015: Joshua Richards and I preached the gospel from about noon to 3pm at the usual spot, Lane and Olentangy River Rd, prior to the Buckeyes’ victory over the Broncos of […]

Malarkey! Raising kids, MLK Jr Day and Sufficiency

1. I know it’s funny that Alex Malarkey’s last name has a coincidental meaning in English of “nonsense.” And the book previously drafted by him is nonsense. But can we stop with the plays on words with the person’s name? Just take for example the fact that both Alex and his mother have repented and […]

Random Acts of Kindness

Preach the gospel at all times, whenever possible include kind actions as well.–Michael Coughlin Christian: You can seem kind without giving the most important thing you can give to people. I’m not saying “don’t do kind acts,” and I’m not saying “you can only do a kind act if you share the gospel” … but […]
