The Shackles of Cheap Freedo...

Are you free… really, truly free? Do you even know what real freedom is? Have you ever really experienced total freedom? How much would you be willing to give up for your freedom? How valuable is your freedom? I’m afraid, for most Americans, their freedom is way too cheap! What is cheap freedom John Adams […]

Why You Should Care About Ch...

Last week, my heart broke as I saw the results of the shooting at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina.

This Knowledge Puffs Up

The book of 1 Corinthians was written to a messed up church. You name it, the Corinthians were doing it: bad theology, sexual immorality, wrong worship, and families in chaos.
