The votes are in…

The votes are in…

And, the winner of the “cover contest” is this: Great choice. As for my personal preference (and what was planned before this went to vote)… it was this one, which was the second place winner: The photo that the majority of you picked was actually our selection for the back cover. This second picture will […]

Thanks to my personal, professional photographer (i.e., my wife), we have a good number of photos for my upcoming worship CD, “The Start Of A New Life.” I’m not sure which one will work for the cover, so I’m opening it up to you to help me decide. Vote once, and post your reason why […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Imprecatory Psalms

The Imprecatory Psalms

Um… What? I’m sure glad that nobody has written any hymnals that we sing loudly and proudly along to with phrases like “dash the heads of my enemies’ infants, O Lord, against the rocks!”

Habakkuk’s Song

The MBTI Test, Carl Jung, and satan

As Christians, to condemn the test because it is based on theories of an anti-theist, therefore, requires us to reject everything that came from a non-believer… including medicine, scientific theories, medical research, etc. It is patently ridiculous.

It takes just one to spoil the bunch

It takes just one to spoil the bunch

Immediately, what came to mind was the small number of Christians on YouTube who create blatant animosity among non-believers as almost a badge of courage. And, like the guy on the train, that non-believer walks away thinking that all Christians are jerks.

It takes just one to spoil the bunch.

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.
