Faithful at Work, Faithful in Ministry

Work and Ministry are much more connected than they appear. Colossians 3:23 tells us that when we work, we should work heartily not for men, but for God. I’ve been thinking on this topic a lot. I have this temptation in my head to think that somehow my working a “normal” job is somehow less worshipful…

Our Debt-Free Plan For 2016

This point in my and my wife’s life is anything but “normal”. We got married at 18. We both love the Bible. I completed only one semester in college. Many would be fine accruing tens of thousands of dollars in student loans (nothing sinful about that) and then find themselves not knowing what they wanted to…

Our New-Used Apartment!

  If anyone has been faithfully following my Tuesday and Thursday blogging schedule, then you’ll be fully aware of my lack of posts for all of last week. The reason for the brief hiatus was for settling into our new (used) apartment! Pictured is most of our apartment with captions for each room. As you…

Why I left After One Semester

This won’t be a post from me, but rather an article from Desiring God listing wise ways to approach education and debt. These principles are at the heart of why we chose to leave college after the first semester. There certainly were other reasons, but debt was probably the biggest. Click on the photo to…

First Snow Of The Season!

I love snow. I love how pretty it makes the world. It’s almost like pressing a reset button on everything. Clean slate. Fresh start. At least this is my own    perspective, I know some who love the snow and others who hate it. Either way we finally got the first snow of winter! My…

The Longing For Home

This Thanksgiving, I feel something between nostalgia and hopefulness. It’s a strange mix of joy in what’s to come (family fellowship) but also of what’s ultimately to come. As I sit here waiting to head down to VA to visit my wife’s family for thanksgiving, anxieties run through my head. What if we break? I’m…

A Christians Worldview In Suffering

I was deeply saddened by news of a family i know’s son falling 2 stories. He’s not doing well, and as i said in the last post, it has been a sober reminder of how temporary life is, and how the biblical view of suffering is so different from the world’s. Romans 8:28 says, “And…

Our Worldview In Suffering

Suffering is probably where our true beliefs and values come into light the most fully. The pain of death, the sting of defeat, and the hurt of loss all compel us to run to what or who we value most. We see this in recent tragedies, with Paris and the following events we see many…

A Barnes and Noble Worldview

Many of us Christians have visited the Barnes and Noble “Christian” section. We go up or down the escalator only to find a myriad of books to choose from, some recognized, some not. We peruse by the winning smile of Joel Osteen, only to read the book to find it somewhat depthly lacking. We then…

How Worldview Affects Our Stuff

This is a tough one for me, I sometimes love stuff too much and God too little. What I mean by “stuff” is those things in our life that aren’t necessarily needs, but rather fun things we like to have. Biblically speaking, it’s not wrong to have “stuff”. After all, most of us have a…

Evolutionism According to Romans 1

In the last post, I briefly touched on the cultural hype of the new fossil discovery where a dinosaur was found with preserved feathers and tissue. Read that if you haven’t! So why do people believe in evolution? Isn’t it clear through creation that God has spoken and created? Let’s take a look at Romans…

Flesh and Tailfeathers – The Worldview of Evolution

If you haven’t already heard, according to this article, an undergrad student from the University of Alberta uncovered a dinosaur by the name of “Ornithomimus” with preserved tail-feathers and soft tissue. Why is this important? I’m no scientist, but I’m not sure that the odds are in the favor of this kind of preservation over…
