    The Old Catholics Were Right. The Bible’s Too Dangerous for the Average Person

    I grew up Protestant. Evangelical Pentecostal if we need to have exact labels. We were the good kind of Pentecostals – as opposed to the bad kind of course. We read the Bible. We memorized it. We took it seriously. I always won at Sword …

    Learning From Serpents – by Rick Lawrence

    Five-or-so years ago I was locked in what felt like an all-out war over a dream that was in danger of dying, because a man who was much shrewder than me was bent on stopping it. One day, in my grief and fear and anger …

    You need Jesus…and… – by Sarah Bessey

    You need Jesus….. and circumcision. You need Jesus …. and baptism. You need Jesus … and the right voting record. You need Jesus … and natural family planning. You need Jesus … and modesty. You need Jesus … and an accountability partner. You need Jesus …

    A Radical Idea – by Ted Dekker

    It’s time to let some thoughts die so that you can rise again. With one new thought, your life can radically change. Sound impossible? Well, it is until you learn to use that one thought.  Maybe ‘thought’ is too narrow a word to describe the …

    Ten years later it’s time to tell some of my story… I was halfway to ninety, midway through life, and I’d reached a full-blown crisis. Call it a garden variety mid-life crisis if you want, but it was something more than that. You might say …

    Why I Do What I Do

    Jesus and Ileana- Brad Corrigan

    Jesus & Ileana.   I love these two names so much.   One name means ‘Son of God’… and the other ‘God answers’.   They’re also more than names to me.  They’re the two most powerful stories in my life.   I never knew Jesus, …

    Jesus and John the Baptist – by Conrad Gempf

    You’re behind the mirror-glass window. There are only two guys in the line-up. They both look kind of foreign and have beards. They’re both wearing those bathrobe-things. The one on the left, holding a card with the number 1, is taller than number 2. Which …
