Pastor, Don’t Avoid Uncomfortable Topics (The Gospel Coalition)

…the whole counsel of God—revealed to us in his Word—is challenging to preach. But preach it we must. Otherwise, we as pastors have the blood of our congregations on our hands (Acts 20:26).

Does the New Testament Misquote the Old Testament? (Peter Krol, Knowable Word)

Remember: The original languages don’t function like a code to be cracked. They were real documents written by real people in ordinary languages.

The Exposing Power of Mother’s Day (Abbey Wedgeworth, Unlocking the Bible)

We spend most of our days wiping noses, changing poopy diapers, rising at our middle-of-the-night summons…and putting ourselves last to make sure that the needs of our families are met. But not Mother’s Day. Shouldn’t Mother’s Day be a day about us?

Women, Wage War on a Lustful Heart

I sat quietly as prayer requests were shared. Typical answers were offered: busyness, health, etc. Until I heard my own struggle spoken through the words of another woman, and I realized I wasn’t alone. We were both battling a lustful heart. I thought my promiscuous past was the cause of...
