Don’t make seminary a substitute for your personal devotional life. Don’t make seminary a substitute for local church involvement. Don’t make seminary your second spouse. Don’t make seminary the bad guy when it comes to all your material hopes and dreams. Don’t make seminary about earning a degree or getting credentialed. Nathan Finnn
Why Teens Leave the Faith & What Can Be Done About... →
Their view of the Gospel is a very truncated view of the Gospel… the Gospel has been distilled to a list of do’s and don’ts. Part of what we need to do is reframe the Gospel as God’s transforming us from the inside out. As youth ministries become more professionalized… it has become separated from the rest of the church.

… a number of related issues merit reflection. First, does the state possess the normative competence to provide a diverse array of services beyond its core functions of making and executing the law, as well as judging under the law? Second, does the state bear a legitimate responsibility for resolving social issues such as poverty, unemployment, homelessness and disease?

The Render Equation →
He said to them, “Whose likeness and inscription is this?” They said to Him, “Caesar’s.” Then He said to them, “Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s; and to God the things that are God’s.” What are we to render unto Ceasar?
