“Is The Christian Right’s Influence Over?” asks CNN

“Is The Christian Right’s Influence Over?” asks CNN

I just checked out the main page of CNN and saw this headline, following the re-election of Barack Obama – “Is the Christian Right’s influence over?” I have not clicked the link, but I have provided it for you… I have not clicked the link because I am pretty sure that it ONLY refers to […]

Reason #1,023,472 of why we need Jesus

Reason #1,023,472 of why we need Jesus

Said Jesus in John 15:18-21 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the […]

How serious is Jesus about blessing our enemies?

How serious is Jesus about blessing our enemies?

Very! In fact, just before Jesus reveals his betrayer, Jesus washes the betrayer’s feet! John 13:8-18 “No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.” Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.” “Then, Lord,” Simon Peter replied, “not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!” Jesus […]

A sad day for freedom of expression in Russia?

A sad day for freedom of expression in Russia?

Today, a Russian court sentenced three women to two-years in prison for “hooliganism.” These three women – members of the group “Pussy Riot” – went to the altar of a Russian Orthodox Church in masks, dancing, singing mock prayers to the Virgin Mary to remove Putin from office, and doing multiple signings of the cross. […]

An Election 2012 thought…

An Election 2012 thought…

A few months before the election, in 2008, I made a YouTube video that primarily made this point: if the Antichrist is out there, the easiest way for him to get conservative evangelicals to vote for him is to run on a stance of pro-life and anti-gay. The ultimate point was that who you vote […]

Pretend you are a wedding photographer…

Pretend you are a wedding photographer…

A nice looking couple walks in the door of your wedding photography business seeking your services for their April 20th wedding. They start with pleasantries, and suddenly you feel excited to work for them. As you are reaching for the contract to have them sign, the man’s shirt moves up his arm a little and […]

Fishfest 2012 “Starfish” Entry Part Deux

Fishfest 2012 “Starfish” Entry Part Deux

Second attempt to be the “Starfish” at this year’s FISHFEST in Irvine, CA. I had in mind to do a full production. Unfortunately, time was short (deadline tomorrow), so I went with the tried, true and super fast webcam.

Just venting out loud…

Just venting out loud…

We live in a country where adultery is legal, abortion is legal, dishonoring your parents is legal, being an atheist is legal, divorce is legal, being a homosexual is legal, eating pork is legal, not honoring the sabbath is legal, using the Lord’s name in vain is legal, letting cattle graze with other kinds of […]

Sharing Highs and Lows

A few weeks ago, Rich Melheim gave a message at my church that discussed the importance of sharing highs and lows together as a family. Rich told us to try it out. He said: at night, before bed, share highs and lows, share Scripture, and pray together, reflecting on those highs and lows and -perhaps […]

In May, 2005, Rob was a secular, Jewish, thirty-something, Los Angeles, personal injury attorney whose idea of getting up early on a Sunday was getting up for the third quarter of the first televised, NFL games.

Thirsting on the idea of playing in a band for the first time in a decade, Rob finally accepted his neighbor's request to get up at seven-in-the-morning on Sundays in order to participate.

Eleven months later, his world was turned upside down by Jesus. Instantly, he began leading songs on the worship team and, today, he now leads that same LIFEhouse worship team in which he was initially invited to join as a non-believer.

God is cool like that.
