One of the things I really love about walking with God is the fact that He continues to be both predictable and unpredictable at the same time. For instance, His character never changes, “God is the same yesterday, today, and forever” ( Hebrews 13:8 ) And yet, the way...

This week I received the following question in my inbox:

“I understand your thoughts on women in ministry but when it comes to our husbands, doesn't it say to submit to them?

The Bible passage from which this question arises, is Ephesians 5:22, “Wives, submit to your hus...

For many of you if I say the word “egalitarian” you would probably get a strange look on your face. This would indicate you have no idea what I’m talking about. That’s okay. That’s part of why I’m writing today’s post.

(written and first shared in June of last year on my personal ministry blog) 

“Hey, do you have time to meet today to talk about some ministry stuff? I’d like to get your advice and opinion on a few things.”
