What’s Wrong with Marxism? Here’s How It Played Out in My Country. What’s wrong with Marxism? Christian Ray Flores was a Russian rockstar who in the 90’s played a role in Boris Yeltsin winning the election and preventing a slide back into communism. Now a church leader in the U.S., Christian describes what Marxism did to Russia–and how he’s seeing Marxism’s influence growing in the West.  Thirty...

Good News, Good Fear, and Good Change The good news of Jesus brings good change, and that’s not always something that leaves us feeling warm and secure.  For the last decade, I have been blessed to teach my students about the life of Christ. The thing I love most about it is that every time I step away from teaching Matthew, Mark,... Photo of Tim CaseyTim Casey
Feeling Attacked? A Fight or Flight Response Is Too Weak. When we as Christians feel our faith being attacked, it’s easy to get tense and slip into the natural “fight-or-flight” response. Doing this can narrow our focus to where we stop seeing crucial things around us.  I noticed a theme that followed me throughout one of my days recently. See if you can catch it:...

3 Encouraging Reminders for Leaders in Small Towns As a leader in a small-town church, you ever wonder if what you’re doing matters? You need these 3 reminders.  You Matter! In a day when everyone is connected, the comparison game is strong. We can see the successes of other people and defeat ourselves. In a rural community, it can become lonely as one...

Pride Cometh Before a Fall . . . So How Can You Fight It? “Pride cometh before a fall.” So shouldn’t we oppose it in our lives? Here are three practical ways you can fight against personal pride. If you google “pride,” you get mixed results. On the one hand, pride is seen as something to celebrate (e.g., gay pride parades; school pride). On the other hand, it’s listed...

A Change for Better: Good News about Change for the Christian We experience a change for the better as we submit ourselves to God’s grand story of making all things new.  The older I get, the harder it is to change: to adjust to changes foisted on me, to adopt changes that are needed, or initiate changes that I know would benefit me both in the short...

Sermon on the Mount: Love Your Enemy and Pray for Those Who Persecute You You’ve heard Jesus’ command to love your enemy and pray for those who persecute you. What happens if you don’t take this command seriously? In the last paragraph of Matthew 5, Jesus says to “pray for those persecuting you” (Matt. 5:44). What, exactly, counts as “persecution”? The New Testament uses the word “persecution” without ever... Photo of Jeremy BaconJeremy Bacon
The Fall: Adam and Eve, You and Me, and God’s Persistence In the fall of Adam and Eve, humans stopped trusting God’s goodness, and they made their own decisions about what was right and wrong. Yet God continued pursuing the hearts of his image bearers…. Though they had been given the world and the privilege of being God’s image-bearers, Adam and Eve disobeyed a simple command...

8 New Books for Discipling Minds in 2022 My favorite verses on the invisible and spiritual war that we are involved in as disciples of Jesus are found in 2 Corinthians 10:3-5. The apostle Paul writes, For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On...

Are You Living an Integrated Life? A life which isn’t integrated will end up a distracted mess. The same goes for having a faith segregated from the rest of our lives.  In April 1979, eight RH-53D helicopters and six C-130 aircraft flew north just above the moonlit sands of the Persian plateau. These U.S. military special operators were on a covert... Photo of Kurt BuhrKurt Buhr
The New Year’s Resolution That Matters Most What is the new year’s resolution that matters most? It’s the one most closely connected to our ultimate purpose as humans.  “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?” “That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat. “I don’t much care where—” said...
