Tweeting the Only Way to Heaven

Twitter is not the place to post profound theology. You only get 140 characters (including spaces) to say something. Nevertheless, I recently posted on Twitter the reason why Jesus is the only way to Heaven (and I did it with two characters to spare!). I wrote: “There’s only one way to Heaven because there’s only one God that exists who’s made only one offer of forgiveness through His only one Son.” Though I didn’t write a lot, I still said a lot. It just needs to be unpacked.

Social Justice Begins at Conception

Social justice is trendy nowadays. Homelessness. Poverty. Human trafficking. It’s cool to care about these social ills, even among non-Christians. Curiously absent from the list is abortion.

Make Jesus Central to Your Conversations with Muslims

Islam is growing fast. One out of every five people on the planet is a Muslim. That makes them one of the largest unreached people groups.
