There are a lot of things on social media that annoy me: ads, people who post too much, click-baiting… and did I mention click-baiting? But what makes me angry are the posts that limit God to mere superstition. Are you with me? Have you ever seen something about “If you love God, repost this in … [See more…]
I watched a home video with my family the other day (always a hilarious experience), and this particular video showed baby me trying out eating food for the very first time. Oh, I wish I could show you the video. It is just the most lovely mix of delightful and disgusting. First of all, the … [See more…]
If you ever open a textbook or turn on the news, the word “Christianity” is pretty loosely applied. In the modern definition, it pretty much includes any religion that ever mentions Jesus Christ in any way ever. That includes LDS, Quakers, Catholics, Mennonites, etc. The thing is, that doesn’t really make any sense. These aren’t … [See more…]
What is the point of Christianity? What is its purpose? (How’s that for a heavy opening question? No easy, peasy, flimsy stuff today!)

Merriam-Webster nails it down as being … [See more…]
Think back to how you celebrated Easter this past Sunday. Your church probably had a beautiful service, you probably got all dressed up, and you maybe spent some time with family. At least those are the things I did. It’s a holiday! But Good Friday… Well, on Good Friday I did some homework. I think … [See more…]
Benjamin talks from Luke 14 and Matthew 10.
