FIVE (5) Imperatives for Christian Business Owners Living in the New Reality

Getting ahead of the Adversity Curve.

I just finished reading an article concerning a Texas law that was recently passed protecting pastors from being put in a position of violating their religious conscience or ministry after the disastrous SCOTUS decision on same-sex marriage.

Reality check: Fear of God, or Fear of Man?

Three things we can do to counter the Cultural Silence

What gives you greater fear? 1. What man thinks of you? 2. What God thinks of you? This year we had an opportunity to unite as believers in Jesus Christ and to stand on the authority of God’s Word. As the church, we failed. We allowed the “tolerance police” silence our voices. We allowed the […]

The Lion with the Lost Larynx

Time for the American Church to find their voice again.

For years, the American church has been like a lion who lost his larynx. They’ve been super busy building massive temples filled with smoke machines, fancy lights, and enough video equipment to feed homeless shelters for a year!
