Belonging to the Way: Exploring an Ancient Name for the Church *Editor’s Note: The following is an excerpt from Paul’s new book, The Way Back: Repentance, the Presence of God, and the Revival the Church So Desperately Needs (Westbrow Press, 2022).

Getting Realistic about the Weight of Temptation Since the dawn of time, humans have underestimated a great many things. And will we continue to underestimate, I suspect, until time has reached its demise. The one underestimation that I think is most grievous is when we underestimate temptation. This human vulnerability is hardly given the consideration it’s due. Maybe, in part, because of... Photo of Debbra StephensDebbra Stephens
Lord’s Prayer: As We Forgive Our Debtors We live in between the old and the new. The Kingdom is “now,” but it is also “not yet.” So if forgiveness is the bridge between the two, and we live in between the two, that means we need to live in forgiveness. As someone once put it, forgiveness is the very atmosphere of the... Photo of Jeremy BaconJeremy Bacon

Evil Does Exist. Is This More of a Dilemma for Christians or Atheists? Does evil exist? Yes, but it’s not a clear mic drop for any particular worldview. If the physical world is all that exists, then it’s difficult to explain why people deliberately do evil—and why some of these manifestations of evil give off demonic vibes. Yet if God exists (and not just the physical world), then... Photo of Daniel McCoyDaniel McCoy
