All of Creation – Intro

By on Nov 22, 2017

  In Junior High, during Wednesday Night Service at church, I remember my pastor showing us a series called “Planet Earth” (great series, I highly recommend). While watching that, I remember feeling absolutely floored at how complex and beautiful this world is.   If you’ve never watched the show, it’s basically a series that captures natural phenomena in the world that has been untouched by humans. It’s also all narrated by Sir David Attenborough, so the British accent makes it all the more interesting (Unless you live in Britain. Then it’ll just be plainly interesting).  ...

When the Fight Calls

By on Nov 20, 2017

  Suffering. For so many of us, suffering unearths a mountain of painful memories. The loss of a loved one. The loss of friendships. Financial hardship. Emotional or physical abuse. Over the course of the past few months, struggle seems to be the theme for myself and for so many of my closest friends. Whether it’s the loss of loved ones, the dense fog that is their future, or just life, for so many, the mere act of waking up to face the day seems almost impossible.   But in the midst of such suffering, truth has this funny way of sneaking into our lives. In the song, “When the...

How God Can Turn Any Situation From Mourning to Joy

  In the year 1941, World War 1 raged across many countries, leaving destruction and chaos in its path. A relief ship from the Red Cross was sailing towards Greece with a load of supplies, but when Greece fell to the Germans, the ship was redirected to a harbor in Alexandria, Egypt. Fearing that the ships in this harbor might be attacked, the captain planned to plunge all of its cargo into the water and sneak back out to the open sea as soon as possible. However, one person stood in the way. A young Scottish sailor on board insisted that they unload the supplies so that an orphanage in...

Homosexuality and the Church

By on Nov 9, 2017

  Last year, I was tabling for our on campus Christian fellowship, holding a box of cookies in my left hand and a handful of fliers in my right. Normally, people don’t come up to us and ask questions regarding what we believe. But for some reason, during my shift, a guy came to grab a cookie and said, “I’m gay. Can I be a Christian?” Woah. Wha? I’m just standing out here on Sproul Plaza giving out free cookies trying to get people to come to our fellowship… And you have to come and hit me with that? Needless to say, I really wasn’t ready for a question like that, but I answered it to...

Environmentalism and Christianity, Like Mustard on a PB&J

By on Sep 27, 2017

  My brother is a fungalian farmer. Mushroom spores are introduced to logs, and, though there are distinct mushroom heads that sprout up, the fungus threads itself throughout the entirety of the log’s fibers. Syncretism is a fungus, one that shall seek to devour the Bride like Mordecai’s shoulder until the King returns with his eradicating hands of healing. The flashiest form of syncretism today can be found in the charismatic movement, where African spiritual paganism, with its false understanding of the relationship of the physical and spiritual realms, and how man is to “break...
