Americans Becoming Less Religious

Recently, a friend posted a link to a Pew Research Center report titled “U.S. Public Becoming Less Religious” and asked “How do we reach people where they are at, without driving them away?” Not long before that, I heard a commercial for a church in Chapel Hill NC advertising an event to pack 20,000 meals for Stop […]

Drive-by Evangelism

If you live in Greensboro, there is a distinct possibility that you’ve seen this car. Lest you think this is a crazy, one-off occurrence,  let me assure that it’s not. I took this photo at a certain home improvement center on S. Elm Street in Greensboro last fall. Then, just a few months ago, I […]

What’s That On Your Forehead?

Well, it’s Ash Wednesday and you know what that means: a bunch of weirdos walking around with smudgy, black crosses on their foreheads. These “weirdos” are actually mainstream and progressive Christians heathens and they do it to signify their “repentance before God”. Seriously?

Now, most of those comments were great; I didn’t agree with all of them, but they were still good. Some were just ridiculous and […]

15 Second Gospel?

Most of us are at least aware of Duck Dynasty and the Robertson clan. And, by now, we also know that they are all unabashed Christians of a rather conservative evangelical stripe. One of the brothers (not on the show) is pastor at local church and the rest of the family never misses a chance to […]
