Everything Happens For A Reason?

bfd1cfac-496b-44f9-af05-f3ee1221c3c0_full

I’ve long been annoyed by the saying “everything happens for a reason.” For one, I find it to be rather sappy and, well, I’m not a particularly sappy person. More importantly, I’ve never thought the sentiment was true. Some things just happen. There’s no rhyme or reason to them. They just happen. But the more I think about it, the more I’ve come to realize that I was...

Finding Hope And Peace Outside The Bible

Screen Shot 2014-01-24 at 10.09.25 AM

(H/T) I love the Bible. It challenges me and inspires me, convicts me and encourages me, grants me peace and offers me hope. Without it my life wouldn't be the same. But during a conversation with a friend the other day, I was forced to come face to face with the limitations of that great gift from God. We were talking about...

Is Peyton Manning The Anti-Christ? (Or Why An iPad Commercial Signals The End Of The World)

Tom Brady wears the number 12 which is 4+4+4, the number...

(Fun Fact: The chopping didn't start until at least a 1,000 years after the...

Grace Is A Funny Thing

the-good-samaritan-1907

(H/T) When we read in a passage like Acts 2 that, “All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need,” or when we hear Jesus say in Mark 10, "One thing you lack. Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, then come, follow me" or in Matthew 25...

Do Christians Make Better Lovers?

Technically this is British Jesus, not American Jesus. But keeping in mind that whole Revolution thing, there wouldn't be an American Jesus without British Jesus. So it works, right? Either way, this feels quintessentially American Jesus, so I'm gonna count it. Anyway...back to the question at hand, "Are Christians actually better in the bedroom than others?" That's half of the double entendre being used in the London Underground by the British dating website Christian Connections. Posters like the...
