The X-Men Gospel

June 15, 2014 // 20 Comments

In all literature, there may be only five or six truly Great Stories but these few stories are told again and again, a thousand different ways. I was reminded of this while watching X-Men: Days of Future Past. (Warning: spoilers ahead!) On the surface, this is a film about saving the future by altering the past. [...]

I wrote my latest book by accident. It’s called The Hyper-Grace Gospel and it’s out today. You can find it on Amazon. My new book has an interesting back-story.

A few months ago my book, The Gospel in Ten Words, joined an exclusive club of books that have received 100 five-star reviews on Amazon.

End of the religious slave trade

September 10, 2012 // 20 Comments

In this world acceptance comes at a price. If you want to be accepted you have to perform, you have to deliver, you have to shine. You have to be first in and best dressed. You have to close the deal and make the sale. You have to woo the girl and win the crowd. You have to dazzle the customer and impress the [...]

This account of the good news is brought to you by the prophet Isaiah and the wordsmith Eugene Peterson: Good Friday (Is 53) 1  Who believes what we’ve heard and seen? Who would have thought GOD’s saving power would look like this? 2  The servant grew up before God–a scrawny seedling, a scrubby plant [...]

Before and After

Before he was saved, Paul was a Pharisee (Php 3:5), and like any Pharisee he would’ve prayed the prayer seen on the left (source: Encyclopedia Talmudit, Vol.4, Jerusalem 1956, p.371). Religious pride feeds itself by drawing lines between us and them. It says, “Thank you God that I am not like other [...]

Like me, you probably have friends and family who’ve grown up in the church but who have since wandered away. Pentecostals call such people back-sliders, but I suspect most of them are simply victims of poisoning. They’ve been fed a toxic cocktail of grace and works and it has produced in them all the [...]

I’ve been told that there is a some division among Chinese Christians over Joseph Prince, the Singaporean pastor of New Creation Church. Some think he’s a wonderful preacher of grace, while others think he’s a licentious heretic. We ought not to be surprised by this division. Truth is divisive. As Jesus [...]

“Grace Rules” by Steve McVey

January 27, 2011 // 7 Comments

A little over 15 years, ago Steve McVey wrote the best selling book Grace Walk. Apparently when McVey got to the end of that book he wasn’t done writing, because a few years later out came his follow-up book Grace Rules. The second book, like the first one, takes aim at the subtleties of legalism that often [...]
