This is the dark side of what can happen when the the Bible is wielded as a weapon by those who have nothing of the spirit of Jesus.

This is one of the sickest, most evil distortions of the gospel I have ever heard. A law enforcement officer in my TN hometown arguing that LGBT folks should be arrested and executed. There is nothing of Christ left in his distorted narrative of “Christianity”.

Tomorrow is Trinity Sunday, and at Word of Life we’ll worship together, pray for one another, confess the Nicene Creed, and receive Communion. I’ll preach a sermon entitled, “Is Christianity A Religion?”

Tonight at gave a powerful word about how prophetic people stand in the “in between” — not in the dispassionate middle, but in the crossfire of polarized volatility while embodying something other than just another version of the satanic us vs. them. Amen!

I will leave you to face the wrath of DBH's forthcoming book (which I have read). 😎

Just concluded 2 back-to-back workshops on how we should understand hell (with Q/A). I don’t ascribe to any of the common labels (Infernalism, Annihilationism, Inclucivism, Universalism), but the pernicious notion of the God who is love inflicting ECT* must be repudiated!

How should we think about hell? “I am sure as hell not an infernalist. You can tweet that.” -

Of the most commonly used methods of suicide, guns are by far the most lethal, with a fatality rate of approximately 85%. Conversely, less than 5% of people who attempt suicide using other methods die, and the vast majority of all those who survive do not go on to die by suicide.

I’m conservative in my theology because Christianity is a received faith and we don’t get to make it up. I’m progressive in my theology because the journey is ongoing; cf. John 16:12-13. Feel free to argue among yourselves.
