It’s a common myth that Christians deny science. I’ve heard countless atheists confidently separate truth into two different categories: religion and science. But is that a valid statement? When atheists use the phrase “religion vs. science” they are implying that religion is incompatible with science, as if the two disagree. However, religion is not incompatible with science. Quite contrarily, what we’re really dealing with here is … Continue reading Religion vs. Science
Is perfectionism good or bad according to the Bible? So be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. Matthew 5:48 Whoa, wait a second. Is that verse even from the Bible? It seems to go against everything society, even Christian culture, is screaming in my ears! I’ve heard so often that perfectionism is a bad thing that I’ve started to believe it. But is pursuing perfection … Continue reading Perfectionism: Good or Bad?

My family is in a season of fruitfulness that quite honestly feels almost too good to be true. In seasons of fruitfulness, I think it’s important for us to reflect on how spiritual fruit is produced, so that we don’t take for granted the blessings we receive. What’s infinitely more important than the fruit on any given tree is the root structure and overall health … Continue reading How to Bear Spiritual Fruit
What’s so wrong about sharing the gospel? I mean, why do Christians, myself included, so often feel guilty that we’re trying to share the Good News with our friends? It has become a stereotype in American culture that Christians are always trying to “convert” people, without actually loving them. Many times people are offended when Christians share the Good News because they feel dehumanized – … Continue reading Guilty of Sharing the Gospel?
Most people would rather suffer broken bones than a broken heart. The former is but physical pain; the latter, however, transcends the corporal in its capacity to crush. It wounds not only the body, but also the mind, the ego, the spirit, the soul. I have suffered the blow of a broken heart and its unspeakable aftermath. I’d stare blankly at people when they talked … Continue reading For the Brokenhearted

Recently I published an article called Strength in My Weakness. I was struggling with a mistake I made at work – one that I could not fix on my own. It was with Twitter. Somehow I had made the company’s Twitter account shadowbanned, meaning their profile was not visible in Twitter searches. I spent the rest of the day doing research and ended up hopeless … Continue reading God’s Way is Better
Hell is real. So many people try to avoid this. They omit the word from their sermons, skip over it when sharing the gospel, and ignore it when studying God’s Word. After all, why would a loving God allow His own people to be condemned to such an awful place – a place of agony and torture beyond human comprehension? If God so loved the … Continue reading Hell Is For Real
