WHERE ON EARTH WAS THE GARDEN OF EDEN? (see what I did there?)

Knowledge of the location of the Garden of Eden has been a quest for Christians for thousands of years. Like Indiana Jones’ search for the Holy Grail, many feel that if they can discover this heavenly Garden, that it might offer some kind of miraculous power. After thousands of years, however, the location is still […]

WHY CAIN PROBABLY MARRIED HIS SISTER, AND WHY THAT WAS OKAY

The first time I was ever challenged on the veracity of God’s Word was in my High School history class, when a student asked the class, “Where did Cain get his wife?” This was a secular school, and the question was arrayed with criticism. “Where did Cain get his wife?” I asked myself. As it […]

THE MOST CONTROVERSIAL ARTICLE I’VE EVER WRITTEN

The most controversial newspaper article I’ve ever written wasn’t on homosexuality, or abortion, or on the fashion faux pas of wearing white after labor day. It wasn’t on any of those issues at all. It was on, of all things, the age of dinosaurs. My advocation that dinosaurs are no more than ten thousand years old (in favor […]

SAVE THE CHEETAHS! (BUT SLAY THE CHILDREN)

’ll never forget an experience I once had in one of my pastorates in East Texas, an experience that highlights the illogical atrocity that is liberal thinking. In attempts to raise money for a Christian School associated with the church, one of our members raffled off a cow for butchering. After the raffle was over he took […]

WHY DOES GOD LET TRAGEDY HAPPEN?

Last week my wife and I drove across the state of Texas to attend the funeral of her 19-year-old cousin, who had tragically passed away in a car accident the week before. The situation prompted a question that many Christians have asked in their respective tragedies, which is, “Why would God let this happen?” The eight hour […]

DO DINOSAURS DISCOUNT THE BIBLE?

I don’t know about you, but, for me, one of the most intriguing subjects in the world is that of dinosaurs. I mean, who doesn’t love dinosaurs? Whether they are cute images on a baby’s footsy pajamas or vicious creatures slaughtering innocent civilians in Jurassic Park, dinosaurs offer something for everyone. (In this case, the loving parent or the emotionally […]

I GOT THIS TATTOO TO SHARE THE GOSPEL

The following might be a familiar scenario: After noticing a new addition to your Christian friend’s arm, you couldn’t help but ask what inspired him to pay money to a stranger to stain his skin with a tool forged in the pits of Hades. (Can you tell I hate needles?) The response might have gone something like this, “I […]

WHY THE CLIPPERS SHOULD HAVE BOYCOTTED

I remember the exact moment I fell in love with basketball. And boy did I fall hard. The romance had already begun through the courtship of trading cards, but the obsession took full effect in the early 90’s when Grant Hill’s Duke Blue Devils and Hakeem Olajuwon’s Houston Rockets, both of which were my favorite players and […]

A SOUTHERN BAPTIST PASTOR INTERVIEWS A HOMOSEXUAL

It was in sixth grade that I met Matt. He had moved to my hometown of Mabank, Texas from Colorado Springs. We met in band and became friends. We weren’t the best of friends, but we were more than acquaintances. Although we now live on opposite sides of the nation, through the magic of social […]

MACKLEMORE AND HOMOSEXUALITY

Last night on the Grammys, Macklemore sang his culturally beloved song, “Same Love.” This song is essentially written as a mantra against those who oppose homosexuality, specifically as it relates to “same-sex marriage.” It’s also become somewhat of a mascot song for those that support homosexuality. Macklemore, according to his own lyrics, isn’t gay, but he […]
