The Money-Changers and the Fig Tree

PALM SUNDAY marks the triumphal entry of Jesus into the city of Jerusalem. He entered through the Golden Gate, on the east side of the city, facing the Mount of Olives. Because of its messianic connection, this gate is to remain shut until Christ returns. Consequently, the Golden (or Eastern) Gate has remained closed for …

Roadkill

Rain splashes down,mingling with tearsand blurring reality.I feel detached, buried beneath theremains of bad decisions.Disorder and distressnow the great clarioncall, I wear wearinesslike a wet cloak. I amsoaked to the core,shaky, weak, and tired. I learn to fly, soaring high above failure, somewhere over the horizon,far from from the stench of broken dreams and pathetic …

Jason Allen writes, "Not that long ago, the phrase man of God was a common and honored descriptor in the church, but today it …

The Power of Powerlessness

ONE OF THE MOST confusing statements I have heard is "surrender to win." Consider wartime principles: The Battle of Appomattox is one of the most momentous events in American history—Robert E. Lee surrendered to Ulysses S. Grant on April 9, 1865, which effectively ended the Civil War. World War II ended on September 2, 1945 …

“I Don’t Go to Church. Too Many Hypocrites!”

MY FATHER DECIDED TO quit going to church "cold turkey" just about a year after I had accepted Christ as my Savior and received water baptism.* I was fourteen and was considering becoming a pastor. My father's choice was based on his opinion that church leaders wanted more of his time and money, and the …
