Social Media has its own strategy for Ukraine, Just Ask Putin to Stop

#VladdyDaddy and the West's Dismissal of Sin

As the world’s top diplomats, military strategists, and political leaders continue to construct a punitive global response to Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, the internet is offering another diplomatic possibility: charm Putin and just ask him to stop. The past week has sparked an online trend of young social media users posting on Russian profiles simply...

Christians, COVID, and The Fallacy of Twosideism

Fine, Here is What I Think About the Vaccine

Okay, fine, I’m vaccinated. I’ll admit it. As a writer, there is always a temptation to open with caveats, to carefully identify your location on the contours of the controversy you are about to wade into. You’ve probably done the same in countless conversations. And let me remind you, it’s the holiday season, so there...

The World is Dangerous

Comfort has Cost us Character and Moral Clarity

While we were preoccupied with petty disputes and celebrity headlines, Twitter threads and Facebook drama, we became naive. From C. S. Lewis’s The Screwtape Letters, we are reminded of how a world of comfort lulls us into a loss of moral clarity and how real danger calls us back to conviction and charcter. The world...

How Bread and Games are Robbing us of a Hunger for God

And why the next 12 months are the greater risk.

According to ancient historians, most of the Jewish families sitting on that Galilean hillside listening to Jesus teach would spend every day of their lives on the edge of hunger and starvation. Some days were better than others, but they never escaped hunger for long. By some estimations, as much as 85% of a Galilean’s...

Smite us all. Expose us all. Save us all.

We the people who don't know how to be people.

The Sadducees brought Jesus the most complicated question they could craft against him and his talk of resurrection. They imagined a family of seven sons in which each died passing along their wife to the next brother. They asked Jesus, “In this coming resurrection, whose wife will she be?” Jesus’s answer was simple, “You are...

Leadership Savvy Doesn’t Make a Pastor

Published by The Gospel Coalition

I’m grateful to the team at The Gospel Coalition for publishing some of my thoughts on leadership and the identity of the pastor. I never liked the title “pastor.” My plan was to practice law and pursue politics. I was fascinated with leadership, and all those career tests told me I had a knack for...

C.S. Lewis on Times of Fear

And A Much Needed Psalm

As a pastor responsible for a congregation of believers, it’s been a tough week. There are hard decisions to be made and challenges to serving those who are most in need. It has been shared widely, but these words from C. S. Lewis have been a wise reminder of how Christians live not just in...

The Essential Masculine Virtue

Finding The Strength Between Aggression and Disengagement

Previous Post in This Series: The Two Ditches of Toxic Masculinity: Noah and The True Complexity of What is Wrong With Men The Bible warns of man’s tendency to over-identify with his impulses of aggression and passivity, a topic I’ve explored at length in a previous article. But the Bible is also careful not to...

Christ Was Born Into A World Divided

Politics, Power, and the Nativity

This articles was taken from my Christmas Eve message to Bent Oak Church: December 24, 2019. My kids have a little wooden nativity set that each year we assemble beneath our Christmas tree. This time of year, you see them everywhere—plastic ones illuminated in front yards, wooden ones set up in front of McDonald’s, some...

The Two Ditches of Toxic Masculinity

Noah and The True Complexity of What is Wrong With Men

Previous Post in This Series: A Good (Definition of) Man Is Hard to Find: How We Define Manhood and Masculinity I’m aware; toxic masculinity is a phrase of extreme controversy. Wrapped up in the phrase are hotly debated ideologies, fueled by very different perspectives on what a man is and should be. At the center...

  • Cold nights mean blankets.
  • Link in bio. It's the season of giving and we all know how hard it can be to buy gifts for men. This season, give the men in your life a gift to help them grow into better men. The 5 Masculine Instincts is great for husbands, sons, and grandsons and best of all, it fits perfectly into those fireplace stockings.

Even better, today, Moody is offering the book at 50% off! You can buy the book anywhere you shop for books.
  • Snow, ice, and minus zero wind chill but we got the job done and had some great dog work. South Dakota pheasant hunting is hard to beat.
  • This week, I had the chance to spend a few days at the C4 ranch just out side of Coronado. The ranch is owned by a veterans organization that provides retreats and workshops for Navy Seal operators and their families. The ranch is ran by the Keatings, a gold star family, whose Navy Seal son Charles Humphrey Keating IV was killed in Iraq. This Veterans Day I’m grateful again for those who have sacrificed, including so many families. Thank you.
  • I’m so grateful to be an American and election days are a great reminder of the gift and responsibility we steward. And thanks to all the churches who open to serve as voting places. God give us all wisdom and guidance. May we honor you today. #votered
  • This weekend, I’ve had the chance to worship and study The 5 Masculine Instincts with the men of @westgatechurch in the hills above San Jose. I’m so great full for the opportunity and for their generosity and spirit. Culture has a lot of negative things to say about men, but weekends like this remind me that God is building his church and redeeming men in ways the world overlooks.
  • Another evening filming for @bibleengagementproject. This was the 19th volume I’ve presented, 76 video lessons. I’m once again grateful for the opportunity.
  • Working from home.
  • This weekend, I got to do a book signing at Barnes & Noble. It was a great experience and fun to see these two kiddos stop by.
