Being Too Busy

By on Jul 27, 2017

    Being a pre-med student is time-consuming, to say the least. If you’re not studying, you’re working. If you’re not working, you’re volunteering. If you’re not volunteering, you’re in a lab. If you’re not in a lab, you’re in clinic. And if you’re not in any of the above, you’re freaking out about your career. And if you have a type A personality, you most likely work all throughout the week and probably serve in church too, on the worship team or as greeter or a small group leader, or all of the above.

    Man goes down. Woman goes free. In a cursed world, the above is a clear and succinct summary of the Bible’s teaching on manhood.

She is consistent, each day putting in the sweat needed to accomplish...

    If you have grown up going to church with your family, I am writing this to you. There are a number of questions you need to be clear on, for your own good. What is your greatest problem? Our problems regularly occupy our thoughts. Sanity would dictate that our thoughts be given to problems proportionally to their seriousness. If you were to assess the various objects of your preoccupations, what receives the greatest number of your thoughts? Is it an external problem, something that is external to you? Do you often think about your sin? It is your sin, a problem internal to...

Why Katy Perry’s Rejection of Her Childhood Faith Should Concern Every Bible-Believing Christian

By on Jul 6, 2017

By Jenna Shackelford, RC Journalism Intern and RC College Prep alumnus. Full article published at Faithwire.com. Here is a first glance: Katy Perry’s intimate conversation about her religious upbringing shows the desperate need for apologetics in the church. Perry, while promoting her newest album, “Witness” — as well as her tour — decided to stage a therapy session and air it on Viceland and Youtube. In the session, she pushed aside “Katy Perry,” which she called a facade, went by the name “Katheryn Hudson,” which she was born with, and addressed several unresolved issues from her past,...
