Gospels

John 21:17

The third time he said to him, "Simon son of John, do you love me?"

Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, "Do you love me?" He said, "Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you."

Jesus said, "Feed my sheep."

The Battle

Who are you following?
It does not look like American Christians are actually following Christ. 09/17

On not becoming that which we despise
The end does not justify the means. 02/17

Everything is not OK.
Evil cannot be allowed to stand unchallenged. 11/16

I want my Jesus back.
If all people know about Christians is filtered through the folks that make the news, we're in trouble. 10/08

Are we doing this right?
People should find healing and deep fellowship in the church. Why don't we see it more often? 11/06

Harder than it looks
Continuing well in the faith is no easy task. Prone to wander, Lord, we feel it. 3/02

Sincerely wrong
If we allow ourselves to be deceived, the intensity of our belief can cause serious damage—for ourselves and others. 10/01
