“Black Money” and Old Testament Law

“Black Money” and Old Testament Law

Hi Dojo readers, As many of you know, I recently returned from my 4th teaching trip in India. You can see a few pics, as well as some of the reasons we go there each year over on my Senior Pastor Talbot Davis’ blog (which you should follow if you don’t already). This year was different […]

Rachel Held Evans and a Complementarian Conundrum

Rachel Held Evans and a Complementarian Conundrum

Hi Dojo readers, I came across this image a friend shared on Facebook this afternoon of a Twitter exchange between ex-evangelical blogger Rachel Held Evans, LifeWay head Ed Stetzer and Darrin Patrick (with whom I’m not familiar)… The comment that accompanied the post said, “Somebody call the burn center. We’ve got a third-degree here.” The implication being […]

Why does God hate pork and shrimp? (Understanding OT food laws)

Hi Dojo readers, As you may or may not know, one of the primary ministries of Disciple Dojo is our weekly #RuthsChrisBibleStudy that I have been leading here in Charlotte for about 3 years now.

Do we know if Jesus actually existed in history?

Do we know if Jesus actually existed in history?

Hi Dojo readers, While working on a drawing last week, I was listening to “The Fighter and the Kid“, a very popular MMA/comedy podcast, and the hosts were discussing a celebrity who had compared himself in importance to Jesus. Now the podcast is definitely NOT Christian (in fact, the language is exceedingly R-rated at times, so listener be […]

Healthy Conversations on Human Sexuality and the Church

Hi Dojo readers, It’s been a busy month getting our #Refugee-Jitsu program up and running, and things are going great so far! But I wanted to share another recent opportunity I had that was equally rewarding, but quite different than teaching Jiujitsu! 🙂 I was invited to participate in an excellent and honest dialogue here […]

The Book of Genesis in 11 minutes and 18 seconds!

The Book of Genesis in 11 minutes and 18 seconds!

Hi Dojo readers, Most of you know that I believe the best way to teach and learn the Bible is NOT through memory verses or reading isolated stories or passages from it. Rather, it’s through first putting the “edges of the puzzle” together (see Bible For the Rest of Us if you don’t get that […]

Rereading David & Goliath – Part 3: What actually killed Goliath?

“If you were to ask 10 people “how did David kill Goliath?”, I’m willing to bet that 10 out of the 10 would say “with a rock to the forehead!”

Rereading David & Goliath – Part 1: How tall was this giant?

“…just imagine LeBron James in bronze armor and high-tech weapontry coming at a farm implement-wielding Danny DeVito and you’ll have an idea of the dread the average Israelite solder would’ve felt!”

A “TULIP” for non-Calvinists

A “TULIP” for non-Calvinists

When it comes to theological pedigree among Protestants, many Christians have been led to believe that the subset of Reformed Theology known as “Calvinism” is the absolute pinnacle of intellectual Biblical-theological thought. If one is serious about theology (rather than folk-religion or “man-made doctrines”), one is a Calvinist, plain and simple. It is the teaching […]
