What Is a Biblical Worldview? Definitions, Dilemmas, and Dangers What is a biblical worldview, and does it matter? A biblical worldview is a view of the world which seeks to answer life’s biggest questions from the teachings of the Bible. Many people see having a biblical worldview as unimportant. This includes non-Christians who see the world from a different worldview, as well as Christians... Photo of Bobby HarringtonPhoto of Daniel McCoy
What Does the Bible Say About Death? 10 Truths About Death What does the Bible say about death? The biblical writers give us a comprehensive and nuanced description of death. We learn that, from God’s perspective, death is both menacing and merciful. It is both an ending and a beginning. It can be both a separation and a reunion. Here are ten truths about death from...

Fearing the Waves, Trusting in Jesus I like to blame my fear of water on the 2006 film Poseidon. In the movie, a cruise ship is hit by a massive wave, and nearly everyone drowns. It’s one thing to hear about the Titanic, and it’s another to see it on the TV screen at 10 years old. But there are really... Photo of Jake SutherlinJake Sutherlin
Who Were Jesus’ Brothers? A Q&A with Brian Cunningham, PhD Who were Jesus’ brothers? The sons of Joseph and Mary were James, Joseph, Jude, and Simon. While they were skeptical of Jesus during his ministry, this changed after Jesus’ resurrection. Two of Jesus’ brothers, James and Jude, went on to become leaders in the early church, each writing a New Testament book. The following conversation... Photo of Brian CunninghamBrian Cunningham
3 Ways to Respond to Mass Shootings Have you heard of the “Serenity Prayer”? Although the original prayer written by theologian Reinhold Niebuhr is longer, here is the prayer as it is commonly quoted: “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.” It’s a popular...

3 Suggestions for Church Leaders Who Are Wearing Too Many Hats In ministry, there is the constant pressure to wear every hat of every role that people expect you to fulfill. In smaller and rural churches, this can be especially true and exhausting. One day you are the preacher; the next day, you are the plumber. You read, study, write, mow the church grass or clean...

The Devil Comes to Steal, Kill, and Destroy—and What This Says about False Teaching One of the clues that something is evil is that it’s not very creative. Instead, it takes what’s been created and seeks to destroy it. The Bible teaches that the Devil comes to steal, kill, and destroy. From the early pages of Genesis to the final chapters of Revelation, he’s attempting to take good things... Photo of Daniel McCoyDaniel McCoy
Revisiting Jesus’ Unabridged Invitation Picture a typical worship service, youth group lesson, or revival meeting somewhere in America. There’s been worship in song, prayer, preaching, and now the invitation to “accept Jesus into your heart,” “trust Jesus for salvation,” or something similar. It’s an appeal to salvation from a typical, transactional-type Christianity. You know how it goes: Just believe... Photo of Jim FrechJim Frech
Sword of the Spirit: How the Word of God Puts Satan on Defense In Ephesians 6:17, the apostle Paul talks about the importance of wielding the “sword of the Spirit.” What is he talking about? The sword of the Spirit is how Paul describes the word of God and its role in spiritual warfare. While truth, salvation, faith, and righteousness are also depicted as essential pieces of armor,...

We Need Mutual Accountability in Three Crucial Areas Christians need to cultivate mutual accountability in the areas of learning, doing, and sharing. International disciple maker Curtis Sergeant describes what this can look like. Accountability is often viewed as something unpleasant, especially in an employment context where it may involve discipline for subpar performance. But in a Christian context, holding one another accountable is... Photo of Curtis SergeantCurtis Sergeant

Jesus Loves the Little Children—and the Church Must Too. Jesus loves the little children, and he taught his followers to do the same. This is why churches have historically helped care for children in vulnerable situations, whether facing poverty, foster care, or abortion.

5 Reasons Jesus Teaches Us to Choose Life There are lots of opinions, philosophies, and beliefs surrounding the topic of abortion. As Christian ministers, we believe it is best to trust Jesus over human wisdom. By his teaching throughout Scripture, Jesus teaches us to choose life.

Sermon on the Mount: How Can We Pray for Our Daily Bread? If you’re looking for general advice on prayer, the first thing the Lord’s Prayer says is to center yourself on eternity. Paradoxically, the second thing it says is that the small stuff matters. I guess that’s one advantage of being an infinite being—nothing is too big for God, but nothing is too small for him,...
