Philemon
Charge That to My Account
The brief, often neglected and overlooked letter of Philemon in the New Testament appears on the surface to be nothing more than a random correspondence from the Apostle Paul about a thieving, runaway slave. But when we read the lines, it is quite clear why this short, seemingly irrelevant letter firmly belongs in scripture. It packs a powerful, heart wrenching...

Logos and Rhema
Who is the Word of God?
Over the years, Charismatic and Pentecostal circles have developed a rather standardized way of defining the “Word of God.” A vast majority break it down into two ways in which God speaks, based on two different Greek words. They call the Bible the “Logos” (the written word), and they call personal prophetic inspiration the “Rhema” (God’s individual...

The Narrow Way
Is Not the Sermon on the Mount
A common misconception among many Christians is that the “Narrow Way” referenced in Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount is referring to our own requirement to actually obey the Sermon on the Mount itself. If salvation and holiness comes by law, then indeed such obedience to this Sermon seems like a logical conclusion. However, the Sermon on...

Marijuana
And the Promise of a Higher High
Taking on a more controversial and topical subject this week, John Crowder finally addresses an issue folks have been asking him to cover for years: his views on marijuana.
Although one’s perspective on such an issue is far less than secondary to the importance of the Gospel of Jesus Christ itself, nevertheless the Gospel should inform our views on...

The Criticism Sandwich
How to Deliver a Spanking
In a day and age of social media battles, outrage and a lack of healthy conflict skills - it may be helpful to look at the apostolic method for offering correction. A recurring theme in the letters of the Apostle Paul was his method for delivering constructive rebuke. Paul was the master of the “criticism sandwich,” wherein he...

Evangelizing Evangelicalism - The Jesus Trip

Evangelizing Evangelicalism
Putting Jesus Back into the Good News
The term “Evangelical” which describes the bulk of all Protestant Christians, is based on the word “evangel” which means “Good News.” Evangelicals are supposedly Gospel believers. However, there are countless “foundational” doctrines which undervalue not only the finished work of the Gospel … they also starkly deny the very Person of Jesus Christ. Evangelicalism itself, as a...

The Book of Revelation
A Better View of the Apocalypse
It seems everyone is fascinated by the Apocalypse: The Book of Revelation. But literalistic interpretations are a dime a dozen of how the events of Revelation are supposedly going to play out (or have played out historically) on a linear timeline. Is it possible that all the major camps have been reading Revelation completely wrong? What...

What is Ministry Success?
Numbers, Building, Burnout and Joy
So often, ministry success has been determined by human standards: numbers and the degree of influence a person has over others. And while preachers generally know that the most important priority is not ministry, but their own relationship with the Lord … ministry itself can become a detrimental idol that impedes authenticity in this area, bringing burnout...

When Mystics Get it Wrong
Returning to a Christ-Centered Mysticism
The rich contemplative tradition of Christian mysticism - the practice of the presence of God - has in many ways been forgotten. But in other ways it is finding great resurgence in the church today through renewal and worship movements. A renewed value on intimacy and personal experience with God is growing. But together with this...

Christ the Telos 
“It’s all about Jesus!” say millions of Christians whose doctrinal confusion and dead theological ideas looks nothing like Jesus at all.
We have not even begun to scratch the surface of how the Person and finished work of Christ invalidates our human understanding of God, flipping the entire religious apple cart on its head. The unspeakable joy is that our own...

Annihilationism & Conditional Immortality
Do Unbelievers Cease to Exist After Death? 
Annihilationism is a teaching among some that after death, unbelievers are destroyed, cease to exist, or else they are merely not given "immortality" or eternal life - perhaps not raised from the dead at all. While this seems a nicer alternative to burning forever in Hell, is it really the right way to view things?
