NFTW #005--Why is this seminary president in trouble?; God as the perfect Father

Listen to it here:

This week, 3 topics on the table:
  1. I'm asking that you'll pray for the folks who are affected by the southern California fires.
  2. How did a guy smart enough to be a Southern Baptist seminary president get into this much trouble?
  3. What did Jesus mean when He said God is our Father?
Here are some links:

NFTW #004--Book review: "The Insider"; Finding common ground; Do I believe what the Bible clearly says?

Listen to it now!

This week, I tell you about a book that has made a big difference in my life. It's called The Insider, by Jim Petersen. Go get it!

I also have some thoughts on this article from the Christian Post. Can evangelicals and progressives find common political ground? I'm not sure that we're asking the right questions.

Also, the Bible is really clear about how God feels about me. Why do I have trouble believing it?

Take care, everybody! If you have a question, comment, or idea, let me know in the comments, or at

NFTW #002--Why we build up leaders; What have I placed between God and me?

Listen to it now!

This week, I've got some opinions about the recent spate of marital troubles involving well-known preachers. My take might be a bit surprising.

Also, I believe that everybody, including Christians, try to hide from God. Why? Have I put up any barriers between myself and God? Those are the questions we'll kick around during our time looking at the Bible.

Hope you enjoy! If you have any comments or questions, leave 'em here, or at

Here are the links to the stuff I mentioned and the music I use:

The intro/outro music was from Jacques Grant.

The story about the divorces of the Whites and Weeks/Bynum is here.
The always-terrific did a great satire of the Whites' divorce circus.
