No Jewish Evangelism? Or, Why “Real” Jews do not try and convert others

No Jewish Evangelism? Or, Why “Real” Jews do not try and convert others

A friend recently posted her frustration at a Messianic Jew who issued a press release announcing that his son was missing. She viewed this as “disgusting” and as an attempt to proselytize to Jewish people, adding: “Real Jews do not try to convert others. Messianics are a different story. They aren’t Jews, but they still […]

Christian Evangelism Gone Bad: Jesus knows best, we should know better, we should love better

Christian Evangelism Gone Bad: Jesus knows best, we should know better, we should love better

There’s a scene in the great action movie “Die Hard With A Vengeance” where our hero John McClane is forced to wear an “I Hate N*ggers” sign around his body, in the middle of Harlem, so as to prevent massive casualties via a bomb set to explode somewhere in New York City. The director didn’t […]

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 […]

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 […]

“How can you guys stand watching TV anymore? The last reality TV show I watched about made me wanna blow my brains out! It seems like everything on air has debased itself to the level of MTV. You can’t even watch the History channel anymore without being lied to constantly. ugh”

Gross misunderstandings of Scripture can make you queasy

Gross misunderstandings of Scripture can make you queasy

When James exhorts us to not be friends with the world (“You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward God?”, James 4:4), is he telling us that we should not be friends with those in the world who do not know Jesus?

It amazes me how some Christians can be so clear that when James tells us “faith without works is dead,” they don’t stray from the correct biblical principle that we are not saved by our deeds but by faith alone.

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.
