Faith Recovery

A Spiritual Inventory

Spirituality is the aspect of recovery that I think most often gets overlooked. Some of us are very comfortable embracing spirituality, but for others, it feels weird or uncomfortable. A series of articles on recovery. I’m on a team of leaders who do the teaching at the Celebrate Recovery ministry at Church of the City. I’ve edited […]

The Burning Building

A buddy of mine is a firefighter and an EMT and he has some amazing stories to tell. He just got back from helping to fight the wildfires in east Tennessee and it occurred to me how counter-intuitive it is for a person to willingly walk into a burning forest. Typically at the signs and […]

The Order of Importance

I had a very interesting question put to me by one of my atheist friends on Twitter. It seemed a simple query at first, but turned out to be much trickier than I realized. @roso_creative OK. How would you rank these in order of importance; You believing him to be true Him actually being true […]

A Moral Inventory

I’ll be honest, things are going to get a little uncomfortable. This is the step in the recovery process where things start to get very real.  It’s a good time to recall the line in the serenity prayer that says “hardship is a pathway to peace”. A series of articles on recovery. I’m on a team of […]

A series of articles on recovery. I’m on a team of leaders who do the teaching at […]

Misguided or Misleading?

I’ve long held that the primary objections atheists have against Christianity are emotional in nature, rather than intellectual. This doesn’t make their objections any less valid, in my opinion. Emotional objections are very real, and usually more difficult to wrestle with than purely intellectual issues, no matter what you do or don’t believe. We’re all […]

A True Contradiction?

It’s a tricky thing to engage an atheist in a debate over scriptural interpretation. They are by definition approaching the biblical writings under numerous presuppositions; namely that God doesn’t exist and the Bible is a man-made myth.  Therefore the motivation behind their challenges is not typically a desire for an open exchange of ideas or a sincere […]

On Trusting God (Two)

(Continued from Part 1) @frank_is_free: It’s interesting how you describe the relationship; symbiotic is the word that comes to mind. However, I’m still not sure how you know there to be two entities and not just one (you) believing there are two. You said you distinguish thoughts dropped by God from your own by the […]
