Every Day I Poke a Stick into a Hornet’s Nest
Not a real hornet’s nest, of course, but something far more dangerous: I confront people’s unexamined assumptions about God, the Bible, and church. I feel called to do this. It’s like whacking at a spiritual hornet’s nest.
I know, I’m playing with fire.
And along the way, I upset a lot of folks. Some call me names and say mean stuff.
But those who don’t hate me for it, love what I have to say.
People willing to listen could get messed up—in a good way—in a life-altering, faith-building transformation that could change everything.
Not convinced? Consider three questions:
- Does God ever disappoint you?
- Does the Bible ever confuse you?
- Does church ever leave you empty?
Your answer is probably “yes.” Yes, to all three. But it isn’t a sin to feel disappointment, express doubt, or wonder what’s missing. These things are a common reality for the serious spiritual seeker. And if this is your reality, you found a friend here.
Yes, I want to be your friend.
Journey with me to embrace the life God planned for us from the beginning.
I won’t give you slick answers. I won’t cram a narrowminded Christian theology down your throat. And I certainly won’t expect you to drink the purple Kool-Aid.
In my blog posts and books, I whack away at status-quo religion to uncover what’s real, what makes a difference, and what really matters for followers of Jesus. I whack at a spiritual hornet’s nest.
I’m playing with fire, so I can skim off the dross to find God’s gold.
Take a spiritual walk with me toward Jesus. Let’s travel together down the narrow path. Kneel with me to take a drink from God’s living water.
Move from a fragile faith to a firm foundation.
