First Round Pin

Are your teens drifting away from your faith? Well if they are, it is probably because it is your faith and not theirs. You may have reasons for your faith, maybe a life changing experience, or just something you believed since you were young, but whatever the reason or reasons, it is your faith, not theirs. Once youth begin Jr. High, they begin to question everything. Not only why they have to learn algebra, (some of us still question that), but why should they listen to authority, more specifically their parents. Many young teens grudgingly do what their parents say only because they have...

Response to homosexuality

“Keep the love going as we peacefully protest Fire church Sunday after pride. During the pride event you will have a chance to hear Flip Benham and other representatives of Fire church throwing damnation our way. Lets show them that they cannot come into our community and intimidate us. We will meet just before Service begins, and protest as they gather, we will have a silent protest as service is going and let them have it as they leave for the day. Remember we will be peaceful and respectful, something they don’t understand. We are going to STAND TOGETHER AS A COMMUNITY to show...

Men lie

Kathy, a friend of mine who is also a teacher, shared with me a conversation she had with some of her students. One of them, William, made this comment, “Well, I don’t believe in the Bible because the Bible was written by men and men lie.” She shared that comment with me, knowing I enjoy answering tough questions and then blogging about them. Kathy asked me, “So how would you respond?” My first response is one that Kathy actually mentioned as we chatted about it, but she shared she did not think of it till after the conversation. Typical of all of us, so often we think of responses...

If I was born in Iraq…

I would probably be a Muslim. If I was born in India, I would probably be a Hindu. If I was born in Israel, I would probably be Jewish. If I was born in China, I would probably be a Buddhist. So? What follows from that line of thinking? You may have heard of this reason to dismiss your religious beliefs. Yes, it is probably true, if I was born in Iraq I would most likely be a Muslim. So what? If I was born on Mars, I would be a Martian, but how that relates to the truth of Martianism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, or Buddhism is completely irrelevant. This is known as the genetic fallacy...

How do we know the New Testament writers told the truth?

Up until 7th grade, this girl showed great promise, despite her having an absent father and several family members who were drug abusers and alcoholics. Once she started in 7th grade, she began to slip and and her grades were dropping. By the first trimester of 8th grade, she was failing in all her classes. Just so poor grades will not be a surprise to parents, at least those who are involved, I print up progress reports every Monday, hand them out to my students who are to take them home, have their parents sign them, and return them the very next day on Tuesday. If they are not returned...
