John Grisham’s Guide to the Depravity of Man

Over the summer, I have made it a point to increase my reading load. Mein Kampf, Pride and Prejudice, A Man Called Peter, Pontius Pilate, and many others have been the subject of my reading. Yet, standing apart from the rest, a single author has recaptured my attention, returning my reading to the world of …

Christ, the God of Fulfillment

Even in the darkest of times, God is good. It seems cliche, doesn't it? Yet over the last eight weeks, this has become my mantra. I have repeated it over and over again, and the words still haven't lost their meaning. We all suffer. It's part of being human. Some suffer more than others, leaving …

What is True Fulfillment?

Teenagers struggle with fulfillment. Somehow, as we transition from children to adults, we begin feeling this never-ending thirst for something. We don't know what it is, but we certainly feel that it can be filled. Some seek this fulfillment in family or a significant other in the hope that a relationship will fill this gap. …

Throwing Yourself In the River of God’s Grace

Sometimes, it just feels like the whole world is against you. Your friends think you're weird, your siblings think you're a dork, your parents are disappointed in your grades, and your best friend just moved to Montana. The only thing you want to do is run away from home. Is this you? I hope it's …

Throwback Saturday: Christ’s Coffee

Yep, you knew it was coming. Coffee is, after all, one of the Africa Boy pillars. It's what keeps me (and probably you) sane. So, if you aren't a coffee fan, dry your eyes and click that back button, because this post isn't for you. Coffee does make you a better Christian. Of course, I'm …

Why 2020 Will Be the Best Year of My Life

Change. It's what defines us, is it not? At some points in our daily lives, we resist change in its various forms. Changes in relationship, physical location, and mood are all common things that we, as humans, deal with on a daily basis. However, some forms of change can be beneficial to us, some more …

Throwback Saturday: Christianity’s Popularity

Originally posted here. A lot of people question Christianity's validity. They say, "Faith is useless! Trust in science and fact is the only truths in this life!" They question why Christianity is so popular in the first place. But I tell you this: Christianity has been the greatest religion because it's the only one that …

The Identity of the Christian Blogger

I spoke on this last week. Citing something similar to a Lecrae quote, I said, "You aren't a Christian blogger if you aren't blogging about Christ." This remains true. Of course, if you are a Christian, this doesn't immediately label you a Christian blogger. Being a Christian blogger is about stance- who you are, what …

He announced that he would be separating permanently from his wife, Shannon, whom he wrote about in Boy Meets Girl. Then, not a month later, he announced his disavowal of Christianity and all things Christ. A …

Parenting: Noble Cause or Terrible Curse?

With the abortion movement as large as it is, some may think this post to be unnecessary. After all, over 30 million abortions have been performed this year alone. Despite this mass murder of babies, hundreds of millions of babies are born each year, creating a large number of parents. As Christians, the response to …

Hints of Christianity in the MCU

Hints of Christianity are surprisingly common in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. One might think that the MCU would abolish any comparison to Christianity, being a totally pro-homosexual and pro-feminist company, but there are more valid comparisons then seen at first glance. Warning: minor spoilers ahead.
