What a Day in the Life of the Church Looks Like for me


all about eve

Have you ever wondered what it looks like to follow Jesus outside the four walls of institutional Christianity?

So have I….

I am not certain how others do it, but here is a brief summary of what it looks like for my family and me to be the church in our neighborhood and community.

You will never believe how Jesus spent $3,150,000,000 in 2014!


billions of dollars

Since the church is the representative of Jesus on earth, Jesus is doing whatever the church does. So even though Jesus himself did not actually do what this article states, it is still shocking to think about how this money was spent.

Final Manuscript of my Newest Book Has been Submitted


Dying to Religion and Empire

Dying to Religion and Empire is going to ruffle some feathers as I not only challenge the practices of baptism and communion (die to your rites), but also raise questions about the legal rights of Christians to the freedom of speech, to bear arms, and to various other rights guaranteed by the First Amendment and the Bill of Rights.

You can get a free copy of this book by signing up for my email newsletter before Monday, January 12, 2015.

Simple Church is Now Available!


Simple Church Unity

Those who are no longer part of the Institutional Church are often only known for what they are against. Simple Church contains 26 thing we are FOR.

But it is not just what simple church practitioners have in common (in fact, we may not all even identify with that title), but what every form of church has in common with each other.

In my opinion, this is a ground-breaking book which will help build unity to all forms of Christ’s church upon the world.

The Church is an Elect People


church is chosen by God

The church is chosen by God. But the church did not replace Israel. The church is the fulfillment of the reason God chose Israel as His elect nation. And just as God chose Israel to be a blessing to the world, so also, the church, as the elect people of God, are to be a blessing to the world.

Reconciling Mark Driscoll

Mark Driscoll’s fall has led many to ask questions about the church. This is good! Mark Driscoll was not the problem at Mars Hill. He was a victim of a larger problem in Christianity.


The True Service of the Church


helping others get homes

A blog reader sent in a story about how he and his wife are learning to be the church in his community. They were a bit disappointed with how their church handled a situation, and so took matters into their own hands to love others like Jesus. If you have a similar story, send it in!

Church Hurting People

Gotta be careful about what those church signs actually say…
