Weekly Word – Psalm 12

“Its not a lie, if you believe it” – George Costanza. I know most of you never watched Seinfeld, it went off the air before you were born!  If I could recommend one nineties show, it’d be this.  George was Jerry’s neurotic friend who made an art out of lying.  While we chuckle at hisContinue reading “Weekly Word – Psalm 12”

Weekly Word – Psalm 9

I grew up in the church, I’ve been a Christian as long as I can remember. The first time I read the Bible was early in my teen years. I’ve been familiar with the stories as long as I can remember.

Should Christians Watch Game of Thrones? (Weekly Word)

This summer I am going to dedicate each Friday to questions that students have asked me about God, faith and such.  Some of these questions come were forwarded to me from Christian students or their skeptical friends.  Others are questions that I have been asked in some way, shape or form many times.  I doContinue reading “Should Christians Watch Game of Thrones?
