Bow or Burn

References: Daniel 3

"Toleration" means that you must accept all morals and spiritual viewpoints as equally valid. To actually believe that you are connected with the ultimate God who is there is the height of arrogance and pride. Apply this kind of thinking to the fiery furnace account in Daniel 3. Is it a progressive, contextualized understanding of how things have changed to go ahead and bow before Nebuchadnezzar's god, especially when you consider that the Temple in Jerusalem has just been burned to the ground and Babylon now rules the world? Listen and learn from Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.

Love Without Shame (New Release)

In the world of Internet porn, sexting, and the assumption that two consenting adults should be free to enjoy one night stands at the climax of their romantic evenings, weʼve fallen into the trap of deifying the gift rather than the Gift-giver, the illustration rather than the Illustrator.

Weʼre in a cycle, a lifestyle, a pursuit that will leave us empty. “Love Without Shame” considers that we have a greater need, a deeper craving, that can only be quenched by the One who designed sex and who knows how it can best be enjoyed.
