Happy Halloween, Jesus!

Trick or Treat! Is there any Halloween costume more terrifying than that of Jesus Christ, the Meek and Mild, the Prince of Peace?   Let’s be honest… if you saw a man walking down the street, mumbling these Bible verses under his breath before later showing on your doorstep – would you really invite him in? Would you actually introduce him to your family and friends as an authority figure in your life? “Do not think I have come to earth to bring peace. I have come to wield a sword!” – Jesus (Luke 12:49) “I have...

WATCH: Bible-Carrying Christian’s Explosive Temper Tantrum At Restaurant

Some folks apparently like to share the Good News by standing outside fast food restaurants (on private property) and holding the door open for people while holding the Bibles – ready to share the Gospel at the drop of a hat. (Yes, it’s actually a “thing” now – it recently happened to me at a Burgerville in Gresham, OR.) After hours of this activity at an In-N-Out Burger in Redding, CA – managers finally asked the man to leave. His reaction? To throw this SCARY expletive-filled screaming temper tantrum that...

As a Christian parent, it is often difficult to find appropriate Halloween costumes for your kids to wear while trick-or-treating, or for yourself to wear to that secular party.

New Audio Interview

I had a fantastic time chatting with Godless Spellchecker in the midst of a never-ending business trip last week. We were able to discuss everything from my days of ministry, my loss of faith, other authors, death threats, new projects, and more… Full Interview: 60 minutes. WARNING: I use a couple curse words. APOLOGY: Yes, I was a mumbly mushmouth, suffering from wicked jet-lag and sinus infection. I had such a great time chatting with my new brother from another mother – wish you were there!

PASTOR’S WIFE ON KILLING CHILDREN: “I WANTED THEM TO MEET JESUS CHRIST”

Pamela Christensen has been charged with the attempted murder of her three daughters so they would “meet Jesus Christ” after receiving instructions from her husband (who is a pastor) about the “world coming to an end”  according to court documents. When police arrived at the Christensen home on September 25 (after 911 dispatchers received two hang-up calls), they found Pamela dressed in white, covered in blood. The children were all upstairs, dressed in white, two suffering from stab wounds to the chest. The mother...

Foreword: Dan Kimball

I have known of Dan Kimball’s work within the Emergent Church movement for over a decade, using his book, They Like Jesus but Not the Church to help flesh out some pre-evangelism projects during my days of ministry. Ever since his review of our first book, this evangelical, pastor, author, and professor has shown his support of our little project – of course, from a slightly different perspective. Always happy to encourage open conversation from both sides of the aisle, we were thrilled when Dan accepted our invitation to write...

#2 NOW SHIPPING!

Still NOT for kids! If you thought our first book was inappropriate for kids, this volume is barely appropriate for adults! More incest, genocide, talking animals, martyrs, abortion, wrestling, magic, and selficide! What would Jesus do? You might be surprised what His own family thought of Him!  This volume also features a special foreword from evangelical pastor and author Dan Kimball. Skeptical about a verse? Open your favorite Bible and read along! You might be surprised! Our goal? We want people to really read their Bibles and think...

Prayer in Public

Prayer in Public

Let’s move on to one of the more rebellious acts of an out-of-work carpenter who often ruffled the feathers of the leaders of the day. Imagine for a moment that you are a pastor, standing before your congregation, praying publicly for God to bless this, to fix that, etc… Suddenly a complete stranger storms in – shouting insults, demanding you follow his own rules, condemning your religious practices. Would the church take kindly to such a rebuke? Not likely. Now, just imagine the same scene in an era of almost unchecked power of...

To Train Up A Child

Now that we’ve gotten one of the most blatant additions to the Bible out of the way, let’s take a look at a story that appears to be quite authentic to the earliest, most original versions of scripture. “Jesus obviously isn’t telling people to kill their children! He’s being sarcastic to show the Pharisees their hypocrisy for focusing on one particular law but not another… He was just kidding!” – Cassie J. While the idea of a sarcastic jokester Jesus is quite entertaining, I can’t find any other instances where He exhibits this...

No Damsel, No Distress

“Let he who is without sin cast the first stone…” – Jesus This has always been one of my favorite Bible stories – full of compassion, courage, and conviction. It is truly one of the most dramatic examples of Jesus’ morality and worthiness as a leader of men. I don’t think a day goes by that someone doesn’t quote this verse on our Facebook page as a way to reminding us not to judge others. Unfortunately, there is a problem: it’s not actually Biblical. Contrary to popular belief, the Bible did not just appear out of thin air one...

Keeping Score

(Some images are a little to controversial to share publicly online. This illustration is available in the second book.) As we transition from the Old Testament to the New Testament, I think it is important to take a moment and reflect on an important claim that Jesus made about Himself: “I and my Father are one.” John 10:30 (KJV) “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham    was, I am.” John 8:58 (KJV) Most Christians would characterize Jesus as the patient, all-loving, compassionate “Prince of Peace.” In the next breath, they might...

An Unlikely Army

I’ll admit – some Bible stories are just fun to illustrate. Especially the passages that resemble the colorful acid-trip musical dream sequences that once appeared in the middle of old Disney films. I wonder, whatever happened to those interludes? Wait! Now I wonder what the heck happened to Ezekiel’s amazing bone army? = = = = = Remember: Don’t blame us, it’s in the Bible! We didn’t pull any punches by adding this illustration and commentary to: Awkward Moments (Not Found In Your Average) Children’s Bible...
