Acts 13-28 For You by R. Albert Mohler, Jr. - A Book Review

As a graduate of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, I consider Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr. (our seminary president) a very wise man. I always appreciate his application of a biblical worldview to current events on his podcast called The Briefing and I take the opportunities I can to glean from his wisdom in the things he writes. That’s why I was excited to have the opportunity to review his new commentary Acts 13-28 For You from The Good Book Company.

Jesus, Zombieland, and The Walking Dead

Zombie movies and shows fascinate me. I’m honestly not sure the allure, but I enjoy them for some odd reason. I enjoy comedies so I saw Zombieland several times. I was hooked on The Walking Dead for quite a while. The one that really freaked me out was World War Z. When you take Zombies and make them fast then you have a truly scary combination…

3 Instagram Traps I Fall Into

Over the weekend, my family and I went to a nice, little town in Tennessee for a birthday celebration. It wasn’t a perfect trip, but no trip ever is. We had a good time. We visited a pumpkin patch and ate a lot of good food. We stayed in a really nice house. Naturally, we documented all of this with pictures and several of them ended up on Instagram….

We can’t be good enough to pacify a holy God. ..

Don't Perish on Your Platform

When I lived in New Orleans, I was filled with excitement for all the new things I was experiencing. It was my first time living in a city. It was my first time to move somewhere and literally know no one. It was also my first time to ever get to truly choose my own church…

10 Things I Thought Watching the Saints Get Robbed by the Refs for the Third Game in a Row

The Saints fought a disheartening battle against the Rams yesterday. It’s now coming out that Brees is going to have surgery on his thumb and will miss six more weeks. If the loss of our quarterback wasn’t enough, we also had to endure another terrible call against us by the referees when they blew a play dead that should’ve been allowed to play on costing the Saints at least six and most likely seven points. All that being said, here are ten things I thought during the game yesterday…

Jesus and the Lions' Den by Alison Mitchell and Catalina Echeverri: a Book Review

Many people haven’t been taught that the stories of the Old Testament are shadows pointing to Jesus. Many, from a young age, have been taught that when they read about David and Goliath, that they are the hero of the story. That thinking comes with us as we grow older and before we know it, we have adults that are making the Bible all about them…
