People who can’t see. (Yet think they can.)

Spiritual blindness, and what that looks like. Matthew 15.13-14 • Luke 6.39-40 • John 9.39-41 Matthew’s Sermon on the Mount has a counterpart in Luke, usually called the Sermon on the Plain....

When Jesus says, “I don’t know you.”

The words we never want to hear from our Lord. Matthew 7.21-23 • Luke 6.46, 13.23-27 Evangelicals do actually quote the next teaching of Jesus a lot. But we tend to do this because we wanna ...

Watch out for the fake prophets.

Look past their messages. What fruit do they produce? Matthew 7.15-20, 12.33-35 • Luke 6.43-45 Right after Jesus’s teaching about the narrow gate, Jesus gives this warning about people who a...

A few tongues to set the mood?

Tongues aren’t mood enhancers. They’re prayer and prophecy. 1 Corinthians 14.5-12. One of the practices I see too often in Pentecostal churches is the very same one Paul and Sosthenes saw in...

Coming to God with empty hands. Much as you don’t wanna.

What do we really have to give him, anyway? God is gracious. Yeah, you knew this already. (Hope so, anyway.) Problem is, we Christians tend to compartmentalize grace. We imagine it applies t...

Humor, sarcasm, irony, mockery, me.

On using my sense of humor for good, and not evil. Too many people are convinced a person can’t learn to be funny: Either we have the built-in ability to make people laugh, or we lack it and...
