3 Billion.

It’s a number I have been contemplating over recently. It’s huge. It’s 3,000,000,000 and more. That’s nine zeros plus digits. We can’t even think about that many people in one location. Two-thousand people in a church is huge. Three billion is more than enormous. It’s Massive.

I Need Your Help: Some Questions

Recently, I’ve been thinking about you, the readers. I want to assure you I am here. I am writing. I am growing in Christ. For those who’ve emailed me over the past few weeks about my semi-absence from the blogosphere with no explanation, I want to offer my deep gratitude. I also want to thank those who have noticed some …

Apathy Defeated

What is freedom’s challenge? How can we overcome it? Only one way to find out: listen to Tim Sweetman’s entry in the Voice of Democracy Contest to hear the answer to that impending question. Take a listen. (To download, right click and select “save as.”) Note: Somehow my entry was either not recieved, or just didn’t win. I never heard …

How To Change the World: Be Changed

Like so many others, I have something within me that screams against the rules. For example, when I was much younger I owned a wonderful pair of Washington Redskins shoes, and instead of using the normal shoelaces, I decided to dress up the shoes with some bright orange shoelaces that I owned – and I don’t have to tell you …

Battle Cry

I’m getting more and more excited about the message of Battle Cry and the possible opportunity to attend. More than 20,000 teenagers attended Battle Cry, a worship rally that included sermons, testimonies and Christian artists. At the event, Teen Mania Ministries founder Ron Luce notes, Christian teenagers were encouraged to embrace the message of Christ over the message of pop …

Do Not Neglect God’s Word

I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. Blessed are you, O LORD; teach me your statutes! With my lips I declare …

Choir Practice

Worship is an amazing thing. I read a quote this morning from Michael Coleman, president of Integrity where he said that “there is one thing we do on earth that we will continue to do in Heaven. That is to praise and worship God. That is why we view life on earth, for those who love Jesus, as choir practice …

Embrace The Truth

I do not claim to be an expert in postmodernism or the emergent church. I am continually learning, and in the past few weeks have been doing some intense study on the topic of truth, something I hit on very early in my writing career. I came across a statement that was so utterly false, I had to talk about …

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

Join us in wishing Agent Tim a fantastic 17th birthday!!! Tim isn’t sure that 17 is such an exciting age. What do you think? If you’re 17 (or remember being 17!), how about some encouragement about how to make this a year that counts in the Kingdom of God. We are so excited about what God is doing, Tim! We …
