1222This week I joined my friends Stephen Crosby and Steve Bremner for another episode of the Fire On Your Head Podcast.  In this episode we talk about being agents of beautification for the kingdom of God.

We discuss how to be fascinated by God’s beauty and live with an understanding of how He feels about us as an antidote to a boring spiritual life.  We also answer questions like, “How do we encourage ourselves in the Lord?” read more

God’s Longing For You – Part 1

Posted by on Jan 8, 2013 in Blog

Many people define religion as man’s search for God. However, the Bible paints a beautiful portrait of God’s search for man. The mystery of it all is that God pursues man! When Adam and Eve hid from His presence, the Lord called, “Where are you?” (Gen. 3:9).

It’s a call that goes out again and again. You’ve heard it. It’s the echo of a still, small voice that is uniquely mysterious. It transcends words yet continually draws the human heart. read more

The New Jezebel – Podcast Discussion

Posted by on Nov 6, 2012 in Podcasts

This week I had another sacred cow barbecue with my friend Stephen Crosby, and former student of mine Steve Bremner This time we covered ‘the new Jezebel‘–which is nothing more than a newly packaged old lie, which basically discourages anybody from asking questions or challenging things that are said or done–specifically in church.  It’s a subtle form of manipulation that some leaders use in order to insulate themselves from being challenged.  It’s a form of manipulation, plain and simple. read more

Have you ever been told you’re in rebellion if you don’t obey your leaders?  Have you ever been taught spiritual authority, that emphasized complicity with leaders for complicity’s sake alone because, “they’re above you?”  Or, have you ever been told you need to be “under a spiritual covering” or curses from God will fall on you? read more

179926afhewyh2This is a podcast I recorded last year with a couple former students of mine, Steve Bremner and Dave Edwards.

We discussed some of the following questions:

Does God really send disasters and calamities to cities and nations in order to teach its people lessons?  If so, does it work?

Does a ‘rapture mentality’ produce a people interested in what happens in the earth during their generation? read more

Hebrews 7:25 – Jesus IS the Heavenly Intercession

Posted by on Feb 16, 2012 in Blog

There is a common understanding of Hebrews 7:25 that gives the impression that Jesus is not at rest, seated on the throne on high after His resurrection, but rather is engaged in eternal intercession, praying to the Father, more or less pleading for humanity, in the eternal state, forever and ever. This is very unfortunate. read more

Organic Church vs Church that is Organic

Posted by on Jul 17, 2011 in Blog

Written by: Stephen Crosby

There is no inherent spiritual significance to moving a meeting out of a sanctuary into a living room. The question to be asked is not related to how we meet (form), but how we live life together in Christ (substance) and the values we embrace. Whenever love wanes, efficiently administered corporation ethics subtly and subversively displace family (kingdom) values. read more
