- Of Dust and Kings >> What Is An Evangelist? How To Share The Gospel In 5 Steps
Wed, 18 Dec 2013 07:00:10 -0600
Evangelism is a tricky thing. So often, the expressions of evangelism that we see are obnoxious soapboxes or passive tracts left out in public places. Real evangelism, the life-changing-truth sort of evangelism, lies somewhere in between.
Here are five simple principles for finding that evangelistic sweet spot.
- Sunday's Child >> A Sign, a Reflection on Isaiah 7:10-16
Wed, 18 Dec 2013 07:00:00 -0600
King Ahaz was more willing to trust the Assyrians than he was to believe that the Lord would save his country from invasion by Aram (2 Kings 16; Isaiah 7:1-6).
The Lord spoke to this fearful king--please note that the threat he fears is real, that's he's not just timid. "Ask me for a sign," the Lord said. But Ahaz refused saying "I will not test the Lord." We can interpret his refusal as piousness or as an unwillingness to know what God wants him to do after he has already decided what's

The sins of others are easier to see than one?s own, so let me explain some of mine. When I first became a Christian I thought that God knew everything and that He was in control. Well, I told myself that He did, but I did not know as much as I thought I did. […]

- Of Dust and Kings >> When Platforms Go Bad: 3 Lessons I Learned From My National Radio Interview
Tue, 17 Dec 2013 10:26:52 -0600
Public image is a two edged sword. As one becomes increasingly visible, the temptation to create a false persona increases and, with it, the danger to one's own spirituality.
Recently, I was invited to discuss an article of mine on the highly controversial national radio show hosted by Jesse Lee Peterson. The conversation was challenging, poignant, and incredibly insightful. After nearly an hour of heated discussion, I learned three very important lessons that all Christians need to take to heart.

- Bow. James Bow. >> Winter. I hate it.
Tue, 17 Dec 2013 09:26:23 -0600
I’m officially done with winter, and it hasn’t actually started, yet.
The lack of light is bad enough, but what I think I hate the most is how wet it is, really. It makes the cold cling to you and you track it into your car, on your pants and in your boots. It means you’re never truly warm.
The only thing I like about winter is the silence after a snowfall, when the fluffy stuff mutes the traffic noise. Then and only then do I have a chance to breathe.

- Sunday's Child >> Emmanuel, a Reflection on Matthew 1:22-25
Tue, 17 Dec 2013 07:00:00 -0600
The angel of the Lord told Joseph to name the child Jesus, a name that means "God saves." Matthew adds the quotation from Isaiah 7 that cites the announcement of a birth of a child centuries before that was to demonstrate the rescue of God's people.
Fred Craddock, in Preaching through the Christian Year A says:
Isaiah 7:14 was in its original context a promise and a fulfillment, and so is it here in a new setting. Here, however, the fulfillment is more broadly understood than in

- Compassion in Politics >> Biblical Hermeneutics?How do you distinguish between literal and metaphorical meaning in the Bible?
Tue, 17 Dec 2013 01:01:19 -0600
I don’t think distinguishing metaphor in the Bible is much different from distinguishing it other literatures or genres (except the spiritual and God transcends our notions of reality). Further, I think reading most of the text through a metaphorical or allegorical (story with a larger meaning) lense almost always makes sense. What is God doing […]

What I mean by Moderate Christian Theology
By "moderate Christian theology" I mean the doctrinal views of those who are moderate, relaxed, and open in how they deal with the world, but who take the Christian religion and Christian spirituality seriously. They will have an interest in the Bible, but will not be dogmatic and will also be interested in interfaith dialog and will not pressure their neighbors. Their primary form of witness is by their life, but they do not hide the fact that they are Christians. They let their light shine through deeds first, then words, and even through signs.
