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.”...

Bursting the Bonds o...

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 the...

Muslim Evangelism (P...

In part one of this brief two part series on Muslim evangelism, I argued that friendship evangelism was not an effective or a biblical missiological strategy for reaching Muslims. I took my cues from a book penned by Roland Müller entitled The Messenger The Message The Community. After...
