  • Dirty Bible Words: The S-Word

    06.14.24. Asking us to submit is seen as the most offensive idea of our day.

He calls us to submit to him, t...

  • Dirty Bible Words: The F-Word

    06.07.24. "Forgiveness" might not seem like an offensive word until we think about what it actually means: giving grace to people who deserve only punishment.

  • Seriously, God? I Should Praise God Even Though I'm Hurting?

  • Seriously, God? This Is Why God Lets Me Suffer?

    05.03.24 If God has the power to end all our pain and provide answers for all the hurt we've been through, why doesn't he? Why does he let bad things happen to good people?

  • Seriously, God? God Won't Tell Me Why There's Pain?

    05.24.24. When we're in pain or when tragedy has struck, it's natural to ask, "Why?" But, Pastor Mike warns, demanding an answer to that question can be dangerous.

  • Seriously, God? God's Nonanswer Is the Answer?

    06.02.24. At the very end of the book of Job, God shows up to talk to Job, who needed an answer to why he had to suffer and endure such unfathomable pain.
