Ep. 20 – Seeking Truth in a ‘Post-Truth’ Culture

The culture and Christ seem to collide often. Many today operate with a postmodern mindset. Do we get to determine what truth is? Can something be true for me, yet false for others?

The Shortcut To Godliness

Is there really a shortcut in the Christian life? We can truly desire holiness, righteousness, and godliness (and those are good things), but if we try to skip the years of practice and instruction that it can take to get there, and if we try to appear more mature than we are, we are hypocrites.

Bro, Maybe You’re Trying Way Too Hard With Your Evangelism

When it comes to sharing our faith, some of us should reconsider our approach a bit. The older I get the more I can look back on times which are quite embarrassing despite how noble my intentions were, and yet, I realize how much of it I caused myself in pride and foolishness.

The Mentored Mentor

In today’s world, we are told that we as men have to be the strong type, and we have to push each other around.
