The Gospel and the Military

Being a Christian in modern military life could be compared to a salmon making the tough journey up stream. There are times it can feel as though everything in life is coming at you trying to drive you in the mainstream direction, opposite of what you're striving towards. There are so many hardships and uncertainties: low finances, multiple moves, many times having a lack of physical support from either family or close friends, having to adjust to new schedules and different cultures around you, searching for Gospel centered churches, having an uncertain future, and even adjusting to different weather and driving conditions....Keep Reading

Written Art: One Way the Gospel Makes Its Presence Known

If you step inside a major city, you see art everywhere. You see it on the billboards and the crossing signs; you hear it in the form of music on radio or see it on giant T.V.'s in places like New York City. If you pay attention to those things, they have one thing in common--communication. These mediums of art usually bring a message to the viewer or listener to express something, and I believe that God is on that same mission with expressing His truth. In fact, I would say he has been at it for thousands of years because of the poetic and extensive writings of the books of the Bible. However, we all know that the Bible is a historical collection of documents, so how about today? Does God really care about using written art so much as to share truth to the masses? Should the Gospel of Jesus Christ even be involved in haikus, verses, short stories, long epics and the like? From me, a resounding YES comes to mind....Keep Reading

Compassion for Criminals: A Christian Calling

When I decided to go to law school, I received many comments like “Are you going to be one of the ones who keeps the criminals off the street?” and “Nice. So you’re going to get the bad guys and make sure they pay.” At the time, I had no difficulty with these statements. Though I had no intention of pursuing a career in criminal law, I figured that if I did, it would certainly be to prosecute criminals. Obviously. Why would I want to deal with the moral quandaries involved in working to get a murderer acquitted? Or a child molester? Or a rapist? Sure, I would probably be fine with helping someone out of a trespassing charge, or maybe even a DUI. But actively attempting to ensure that a man or woman, guilty of some heinous crime, be set free? Or even receive a light sentence? Why? How could anyone live with themselves?...Keep Reading
