Are your feelings guiding your faith?

As I look around today, reading and listening to evangelical voices, I find many Christians who believe faith is something mystical that pits feelings against using our brains. Are your feelings guiding your faith as a determiner of truth? Women were made emotional creatures and many times if we aren't careful, we have a tendency to... Continue Reading →

Why I Study Theology And Believe You Should Too

In its most basic sense, Christian doctrine is belief based on Scripture. Doctrine is believed, practiced, confessed, and taught. Understanding and applying doctrine rightly requires comprehension of classical Christian theology that has served as wisdom of the ages for the church today.

The Problem of Moral Deception

We are living in a world drifting further and further away from God's moral principles. Nations once claiming to be Christian are now promoting ideals completely contrary to the Scriptures.

Their good deeds might lead us to believe these persons are of good character, but we are many times assuming falsely. Truth is, it makes them feel better about themselves. Commonly understood but not often stated,... Continue Reading →

We are Tempted to Skip the Hard Parts

While teaching Let’s Do Theology on Sunday evening, I was reminded that as Christian women in the year 2020 we are most often taught a mainstream theology of positivity and self-affirmation. In this cultural climate of you do you, we are tempted to skip past the hard parts of Scripture and dwell in those places... Continue Reading →

When Seasons Transition

Amidst the books on my desk this week is my 2020 calendar. It's the time of year that I begin transferring events and appointments. Seasons are an integral part of our lives and in comfort, we experience life in familiar places and familiar ways, with predictable people. The desire to be a good steward of... Continue Reading →
