Adam and Eve had it all.  All the pleasures of God’s created order and only one little rule.  They had personal, intimate fellowship with God.  All their needs were provided for.  They had no fear, no loss, no anxiety.  If anyone was ever secure, it was Adam and Eve....

Insecurity, or better stated, the study of it and the label for it, is a relatively recent concept.  While it has been around since the fall of humanity, the Bible doesn’t use the word.  You won’t find it even in the most contemporary translations.  You do find the wor...

As a teenager in Ketchum, Oklahoma, I owned a hybrid.  Not an electric/gas hybrid, but a hybrid of parts from a Ford Maverick and a Mercury Comet.  My parents provided it for me and I was grateful.  One winter day, following classes at Ketchum High, it had snowed and...

The Church is always adapting and changing to impact its culture.  In America, it is not dying, it is transforming.  Changing from the institutional church of the past 100 years, to a more dynamic and fluid church that little resembles the past, while maintaining the c...
