The Trinity Teaches Us Truly

Ephesians 5:1 tells us to be “imitators of God.” Okay. But how do we imitate God? Some theologians say that we should not look to God’s triune relationships, ad intra, as examples for our own. They say that there is nothing to prescribe our relations with one another in what They do for One Another.   This is a grave …

Does “Queer Theology” Work?

I recently was interviewed by a bright young student studying queer theology. She was trying to figure out what she believed about it. What is queer theology, you ask? Well, as always, people try to adopt Christianity to cultural movements. This isn’t necessarily bad, as God sometimes brings up important truth through the culture.

Let me make it real simple for you by stating the seven main principles that I see the Bible  teaching us about gender. There …

Send the Stutterer to Teach

Ever notice how God delights in turning someone’s weakness into a strength? So God takes a man who cannot speak well, who was “slow of speech and of tongue” (Exodus 4:10), to speak some of the most important words ever spoken.
