Profanity is the new Comedy??

Although I have been reading a few facebook status updates on 'AIB Roast' I never had a chance to see it. I kinda knew what to expect as I had seen a few excerpts of the Comedy Central Roast. When I say excerpts it would be mainly a few ads on television and occasional random clips in youtube. Profanity expressed by a bunch of dapper gentlemen and some weird ladies and thats all about it. And today one of my dear friend sent me a clip of the AIB Roast via whatsapp. The same old profanity that I...

The Christian’s Acceptable Drug

I’m not talking about coffee. I’m currently writing a series of new articles that I plan to send you in future editions of this Thursday email list. But they aren’t ready just yet. So today, I refer you to Episode 3 of the new Insurgence Podcast. I have a new partner for this episode. I believe this episode meets a need that’s been ignored (by and large) among Christians today, especially leaders. I call it The Christian’s Acceptable Drug. (You should be subscribed to the new podcast by now, but...

Saint John Paul II: Prophet, Priest, Exorcist

The renowned Pope John Paul II biographer George Weigel gave a moving keynote presentation on suffering in the life of St. John Paul II at the 2005 national conference of the Council of Major Superiors of Women Religious. The conference theme was Healing and the Mystery of Suffering. I was there to give my testimony of suffering and healing in the family but the greatest witness we heard was Weigel on the life of Karol Wojtyla. In the latter days of his life that played out on the theatre of the...

Today, approximately 215 million Christians experience persecution, meaning that one in twelve Christians live where Christianity is "illegal, forbidden, or punished" and "Islamic extremism remains the global, dominant driver of persecution, responsible for initiating oppression and conflict," according to the Christian watchdog group Open Doors.

You Are Welcome Here

The redeeming death of Jesus saves individuals, but it does more than just this. It creates communities, miraculously forming redeemed people into churches who live as family with one another. In Romans 15:7, the apostle Paul identifies the ground and goal of true community: “Welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.” Every church I know wants to be a welcoming church. But the way we think of “welcoming” is often superficial, limited to a warm greeting wit...

Being a Seminarian in a Christian Community

“By this all people will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” — John 13:35 Some say that they don’t go to church because Christians are hypocrites. We could easily respond and say that we are all hypocrites to one degree or another, and that our accuser is simply making excuses. There is some truth to that. But they’re not wrong. I grew up in church, attended a Christian college, worked at bible camps, worked at a Christian college, worked full time leadership posi...

'Risen' Should Satisfy the Christian Community, but What About Other Audiences?

Just in time for Easter, Sony Pictures sends us "Risen" a faith-based movie that pretty much sticks to the scriptures. And you know what that means. The religious community is going to love it and the haters are going to hate. However it should make a decent amount of money at the box office just relying on the Christian community. The fact it is an entertaining movie should add even more shekels. The film tells the story of the crucifixion of Yeshua/Jesus and the eventual disappearance of his c...
