    Jesus the Bartender

    Fullerton, CA   The downtown area of this small Los Angeles suburb is home to over a dozen bars ranging from Mexican cantinas, Irish pubs and average American bars. Every Friday and Saturday evening, the streets swell with college students, business executives, the poor, the rich, and everyone in between....
  • Sharing Meaningfully with Muslims

    When I first came to the mission field to work with Muslim peoples, I knew that I would need to find different ways of sharing the Gospel with them that were especially meaningful to them. I also knew that apologetics would look very different. And while I am by...

  • The Priority of Evangelism in Global Missions

    Every day 38,000 Muslims die. They die and pass into an eternity in hell. There is one Christian missionary for every 420,000 Muslims on the earth. These are just the stats for Islam. If we add the world’s other major religious blocks—Hinduism and Buddhism—then the numbers become even more...

    Ray Comfort vs. Evolution

    Fellow Christians, our enemy is not evolution, it is naturalism. Please, please, please recognize the difference. Ray Comfort, well-known evangelist and co-founder of The Way of the Master along with Kirk Cameron, has produced a new apologetics video entitled, “Evolution vs. God.” Here it is below. It is only...
  • Bursting the Bonds of the Layman

    One of the most tragic aspects of the western evangelical landscape has been the hollowing out of the layman’s Christianity. Notice that I did not say the layman’s role in the church, though that is undoubtedly incorporated in what I mean by “Christianity”; but it is so far from...
