What We Learned from Lecrae’s “Restoration”

After over two years of silence, acclaimed rapper Lecrae has released his newest album, aptly titled “Restoration“. The album, containing tracks featuring popular artists John Legend and YK Osiris, has been met with wide success, garnering over 2 million YouTube views within mere days of being released.

What happened? What caused his music to take such an extraordinary shift?

Publishing Peace Ministries Launch!

Publishing Peace Ministries Launch!

Today is the day! Publishing Peace Ministries has officially launched! After three months of dreaming, writing, envisioning, and working, we have finally reached the Starting line.

Publishing Peace Ministries, originally known as “Project Cast”, began as the brain child of Jonathan Bjorn-Kellogg, aka. Bjorn. His vision for quality Christian content in an age of low-quality, lackluster “christian” content was a magnificent one, attracting people such as myself to the ministry idea.

After a few weeks, several decisions were made. First, the project name was changed to “Publishing Peace Ministries”, based on Isaiah 52:7, which says, “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.

The project focus then shifted from YouTube-oriented to website-oriented. While YouTubing and Podcasting is still on the radar for Publishing Peace, the writing team shows a lot of promise and will begin work today.

Finally, before work began, the board of Directors voted me as the Director of Publishing Peace based, I believe, on my past experiences and current skill set. I am deeply humbled by the appointment and have promised to do my absolute best to ensure that this project succeeds.

If you’d like to become involved in the project as a writer, contact me or write me at mcfarlandhalfdoz@gmail.com. If you’d like to view/watch what we produce, you can visit our site by clicking here (make sure to subscribe) or following any of our social media below.

Monday Q&A 8: Christianity Compared

Monday Q&A 8: Christianity Compared

Comparing Christianity is an easy discussion for a missionary kid formerly based in a continent dominated by Muslims. Having seen firsthand the similarities and differences between Christianity, Islam, non-belief, and the rest, I have looked forward to this discussion since beginning the Monday Q&As.

Because this is the last Q&A from Stoa Apologetics, I will be answering all 14 questions, regardless of relevancy and wordcount. As always, the answers are taken from as close a Biblical standpoint as possible, and constructive discussion is always welcome. You can find the entire Q&A worksheet here.

Five Important Tips for Young Bloggers

If I were asked to guess what percentage of bloggers put real, hard work into their writing and websites, I would likely hazard a guess at 10%.

10%. One out of every ten bloggers are fighting to put themselves above the rest, learning new techniques, sharpening their writing skills, and constantly updating their websites.

The other 90% are writing lazy, 200-word posts, publishing once a month, refusing to do any marketing or optimizing, and failing to improve their writing skills, all while complaining that their traffic stays at rock bottom.

Which group is yours? Which one sounds more appealing?

The Tragic Loss of Real Masculinity

The Tragic Loss of Real Masculinity

Our culture has completely lost what it means to be a man. What was once a proud and accomplished status now lies discarded in the dirt. Boys have taken over our country. They have normalized non-manhood, brought themselves and their immaturity into popularity, and they continue to reject the true calling to manhood.

This travesty has destroyed many pieces of our culture. Quality of relationship has decreased massively over the past fifty years, punctuated by increases in divorce and abortion.

What needs to be done? How can we, as Christians, aggressively attack and destroy what our culture portrays as “manhood”, and show the way to creating true, real men?

It all starts with our boys.

Monday Q&A 7: Christian Worldview Application

Monday Q&A 7: Christian Worldview Application

Worldview is a difficult topic to discuss, given the fact that the subject changes based on the person. Because everyone has a different worldview, it can become difficult to even speak on the subject, let alone have a decent discussion on the topic.

Christian worldview, on the other hand, is a unifying topic that needs to be discussed more often. Identifying weak worldview and working to grow stronger, Biblically-grounded worldview should be a lifelong goal for every Christian.

With that, we turn our attention on today’s Monday Q&A: Christian Worldview Application. As always, I will be choosing to answer 12 of the 14 questions presented in Stoa Apologetics’ worksheet, found here. Let’s dive in.
