Transformation: The Uncomfortable Reality of Suffering

One of the cruelest banalities of soft (and false) Christianity is the idea that God alleviates the suffering of the righteous.  In America especially there’s a sense that the lessening of suffering is a sign of your election, of God’s love for you (Calvinism is hard to shake from our imagination).  If you’re not relieved from suffering –...

Savior and Spittle: Lent, Grit, and Spitting Men

It is a well-known urban legend in our subculture that a mother’s saliva contains restorative, cleansing and perhaps even healing powers, the real truth of which medical science has not yet either fully discovered nor appreciated. How many among us in our younger days had our tangled or unruly hair smoothed by our attentive mothers spitting i...

Technology Displaced Fathers. To Fight Back You Must Displace It.

The average father cannot easily face the challenges he intuits, because he doesn’t understand them. And it is not because he is unintelligent, but because the force that has overtaken the totality of the developed world is too often unrecognized.  We don’t realize it in the same way we don’t realize air – its total presence is such a give...

Money & the Digital Hijacking of Reality

I would like to recommend a book titled The Resurrection: Experience Life in the Risen Christ by Fabrice Hadjadj. It was given to me as a gift for Easter. I found it to be surprisingly insightful and unexpectedly joyful! With a great sense of humor, Hadjadj interprets the Gospel passages pertaining to the Resurrection. He brings a fresh perspective...

Jesus Christ Is in the Real. Not the Digital.

I try once a month to take what is called a “desert day”, a day to retreat from all work and technology to be with the Lord and listen to Him, to pray for all the people who have become a part of my belonging to Christ. I spent one of those days hiking Kennesaw Mountain in North Georgia, doing equal parts wandering and taking in the scenery. At...

Dangers of Technology – Not Just Porn

The world inside our technologies is not the world. It is a construct of man. It can represent and inform us about the world, but it is not an encounter with it. The real world was made by God and is experienced through the senses, in the flesh, not through the medium of media. There seems to be an encroachment of the world made by man into the ...
