In the “you can’t make this stuff up” file I recently came across an interesting article.  It seems as though a new temple is being built to worship the Norse pagan gods.  You know, Thor, Odin and all the rest?  Not too long ago Marvel comics started using some of these figures in their super-hero movies, but folks in […]

Remember back when all the Purpose Driven churches began to offer alternative celebrations to Halloween?  The argument was that these events would give the church the ability to reach out to the community sharing the love and message of Christ in a way that kept kids safe, brought the family together, and took the focus […]

I’m not quite sure how to describe this teaching other than to say it is one of the most eye-opening (and frightening) talks I’ve heard in quite some time.  It is a history of the seeker-friendly and Purpose Driven movements.  When I say “history”, that is exactly what I mean.  Sources are quoted, reference material […]
