  • Winning conflicts, losing relationships

    I’ve recently discovered the secret to getting rid of internal turmoil and stress — I’ve stopped listening to news talk radio and political talking heads shows on TV.
    Instead, I listen to my iPod — music and podcasts of sermons and science, food and history. It’s amazing how my inner agitation and anxiety has gone way down, and I haven’t missed a thing. I still know what’s going on in the world — I do work for a newspaper — without having to endure all the yelling.

  • Jesus shows love beyond compassion

    Why did Jesus heal the sick and perform exorcisms? In one sense, we could rightly say that Jesus healed the sick and cast out demons because of his compassion.
    Matthew 14:14 says, “And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick.”
    That is certainly one reason why Jesus healed. But the main motivation in scripture given for why Jesus healed the sick, cast out demons or performed any kind of miracle was to reveal something about who he was.

  • God is good, God adores and other random God musings

    Occasionally I clean out my column ideas folder and come across random notes and musings, sometimes written in the middle of the night, sometimes in the margin of a church bulletin during a song or sermon during a worship service.
    None of the ideas are big enough for a full-blown column, but they may be helpful to someone reading this. So, here are some random thoughts and miscellaneous musings:

  • Man’s tradition, or the word of God?

    “We’ve never done it that way before.”
    These sometimes seem to be the most popular words in the church today. The temptation to elevate tradition above scripture is one for which we must always remain vigilant. Jesus warned against the Pharisees in Mark 7 who He said, “leave the commandment of God and hold to traditions of men.” (7:8)
