Chris Paul isn't attaching any extra significance to playing Rajon Rondo after spit incident: 'Move on'

If Houston Rockets guard Chris Paul holds any hard feelings against Los Angeles Lakers guard Rajon Rondo after Rondo spit in his face, he's not letting it on. Paul attempted to downplay the spitting incident, telling ESPN's Tim MacMahon he “forgot about it. Paul also said once the money was taken out of his paycheck, he was ready to move on.

We Murder with Words Unsaid

Never have so few words haunted me so. In the dream, I sat in a balcony before the judgment seat of God. Two magnificent beings dragged the man before the throne. He fell in terror. All shivered as the Almighty pronounced judgment upon him. As the powerful beings took the quaking man away, I saw his face — a face I knew well. I grew up with this man. We played sports together, went to school together, were friends in this life — yet here he stood, alone in death. He looked at me with ...

Kings hopeful they can get well again on the road

Records show the Kings have roughly the same record at home as on the road. They are 12-15-2 at Staples Center, 11-15-4 away from it. Each mark is good for 26 points. But after going 3-2-1 on their most recent road trip, the Kings just finished a homestand in which they went 0-2-1. After the Kings dropped a 3-2 decision to the Stanley Cup-champion Washington Capitals on Monday night at Staples Center, rookie forward Austin Wagner talked about the lack of success in their friendly confines. He wa...

Your Fight Against Sin Is Normal

Have you hit the wall in your fight for holiness? Athletes speak of hitting the wall when they experience extreme exhaustion due to depleted reserves of glycogen in the liver and muscles. Many believers feel similar spiritually. If you find yourself in an ongoing cycle of three steps forward, two steps back; if your prayers, resolutions, and frustrated attempts at mortification still leave you struggling with the same old sins; if you are weary in the race set before you and feel ready to q...

The Kind of Man I’d Like to Become

I suppose I’ve always had dreams about becoming a certain kind of man. They used to be dreams about accomplishment: about being known as that guy, the guy who does big things and has a big reputation. I look around me now and realize those are bad dreams. They’re not dreams rooted in one’s identity with Christ. And who would want the responsibility that comes with trying to do big things, or the self-focus on what I want to do? Increasingly as I get older I have a different set of dreams. Here a...

Does Drinking Disqualify a Pastor? Warnings We Cannot Ignore

It was the summer of 2016 when the shockwaves passed through some evangelical circles. The preacher of one of the largest and fasting-growing multi-sites in the country had been removed from his post. After a prolonged process, the other leaders in his church had deemed him disqualified for ministry, citing, among other more general factors, 1 Timothy 3:3 and his entrenched overuse of alcohol. It was surprising for many, not just because they didn’t see it coming with one well-known preache...

Report: Some within organization believe Anthony Davis has played last game for Pelicans

He played just five minutes in the All-Star game, fewer than anyone but 40-year-old Dirk Nowitzki So, what now? Sam Amick of The Athletic: According to sources on both sides, there is no plan yet in place for how they will handle this after the All-Star break.

Flames Face Trade Deadline Balancing Act

After a whirlwind first two-thirds of the 2018-19 season, the Calgary Flames are in an unfamiliar place as they approach the trade deadline: contention. The hockey club is perched atop the Western Conference standings and in a year where there’s no clear conference powerhouse, they’re in a position to potentially make a deep playoff run. Calgary Flames general manager Brad Treliving (Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports) But the sudden opening of the Flames’ window of playoff contention has put the...

The Best Leaders Remember Your Name: Why I Love the Apostle Paul

You have heard it said, “It’s lonely at the top.” It means that CEOs, and senior pastors, and leaders of non-profit organizations, and politicians in positions of great authority, and scholars at the top of their field, and athletes and actors and musicians who are known by millions — all these live in a rarified atmosphere of isolation from real, relaxed, vulnerable, reciprocal relationships. This may be owing partly to the way employees or fans put the leader on an unapproachable pedestal...

Saul’s Name Didn’t Change at Damascus, His Eschatology Did

Despite popular belief, Saul did not become Paul on the road to Damascus. Those are simply two versions of the same name: Saul the Hebrew version, Paul the Roman. However, what did change when Christ appeared to Paul—and it’s perhaps the most overlooked part of the story—was Paul’s eschatology. In Paul’s encounter with Christ, he saw the end breaking into the present. In fact, Matthew Aernie and Donald Hartley, authors of The Righteous & Merciful Judge, suggest that for Paul, his vision was ...

Throwing Cheese to the Glory of God

Paul describes the Christian life as the process of “being transformed into the same image [of Christ] from one degree of glory to another” (2 Cor 3:18). There is an upward and downward reading of this text. One reading will transform and the other deform us. On the upward reading, transformation “from one degree of glory to another” means becoming more “heavenly” and less “earthly.” To understand this reading, consider a competition that broke out between some Protestants and Catholics i...

Trump’s Tough Trade Talk Didn’t Stop His Admin From Waiving Steel Tariffs

WASHINGTON (AP) — Despite President Donald Trump’s tough talk on trade, his administration has granted hundreds of companies permission to import millions of tons of steel made in China, Japan and other countries without paying the hefty tariff he put in place to protect U.S. manufacturers and jobs, according to an Associated Press analysis. The waivers from the import tax show how pliable his protectionist policies can be. Trump has positioned himself as an “America First” trade warrior, usin...

GOP Revolts: Rubio, Paul Come Out Against National Emergency Declaration

Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Rand Paul (R-KY) came out against President Donald Trump’s intention to declare a national emergency Thursday after voting against the funding bill. Rubio expressed his disapproval in a statement. “We have a crisis at our southern border, but no crisis justifies violating the Constitution,” Rubio wrote. “Today’s national emergency is border security. But a future president may use this exact same tactic to impose the Green New Deal. I will wait to see what statuto...

Beatitudes: Is It Wrong to Be Happy?

Beatitude, according to Webster, means perfect blessedness or happiness.  But when you read the beatitudes, you seemingly find anything but.  It is the poor, the hungry, the weeping and the persecuted who are blessed.  In Luke’s gospel (Lk 6:20-26), Jesus even adds woes for those who are rich, full, mirthful and popular. I once heard a preacher say that many of God’s people look more liked they’ve been baptized in pickle juice than in water.  Is this holiness?  Is piety all about being miserab...

Pleasures Never Lie: Why Sin Cannot Stay Hidden

One of my favorite poems is only four lines long: The soul is measured by its flights, Some low and others high. The heart is known by its delights, And pleasures never lie. (The Pleasures of God, 4) For me, the last line is the zinger: pleasures never lie. It has stuck in my brain for over two decades. Like a sharp knife, it cuts through a lot of my baloney and gets right to the heart of the matter: what matters to my heart. “Pleasures never lie” doesn’t mea...

7 Ways We Tried To Parent with Grace

Cheryl and I had a model for our parenting. Whenever I say that to people they hear “complicated”. It wasn’t. We aren’t complicated people. Simply put, we attempted to implement grace into our home. Our boys are now grown, and one has children of his own, and we have seen the fruit from our methods. We have two amazing sons. They love Jesus, they serve others, and they respect their parents. (And, they are self-supported. That’s a good thing.) Our heart is now to help other parents learn from th...

He Gives All of Himself

We need to seek deliverance from our vain and weakening wish to go back and recover the past. We should seek to be cleansed from the childish notion that to have lived in Abram's day, or in Paul's, would have been better than to live today. With God, Abram's day and this day are the same. By one single impulse of life He created all days and all times, so that the life of the first day and the life of the remotest future day are united in Him. We may well sing again (and believe) the truth our f...
