On May 17, 2020, Mayor Eric Hogue of Wylie, Texas, sent an email to city council member Jeff Forrester requesting that only men be selected to lead the opening prayer at the city council meeting. The mayor’s email sparked social media outrage and there is a protest planned during the upcoming city council meeting scheduled for May 26th. This incident with Mayor Hogue highlights important issues for Christians and Christians in America. Does the Bible give Christians permission to discriminate against women? Does the Bible teach that women should be silent in the church? Is prayer before a city council meeting appropriate? Watch this video for a Christian insider’s take on Mayor Hogue’s email and how Christians should respond to this incident.

People sometimes have the idea that the Bible is a difficult book to read, but most of it really isn’t difficult. The Bible is an amazing book that reveals who God is and tells us the highlights of God’s history with humanity. Much of the Bible is exciting, some of it is a bit dull, and some parts are horrifying, but all of it is enlightening, and it has a great ending that includes you. This video is a short introduction to what is in the Bible, along with an invitation to read the Bible with me on live stream.
Coronavirus is becoming a significant concern that is causing fear in many people. When something like this happens, people wonder why and sometimes falsely attribute natural disasters and epidemics to God. Is God responsible for Coronavirus? We can look at the life of Jesus to get the answer to this question. Jesus had one response to sickness: he cured it. We should consider God the healer of sickness, not the bringer of sickness. This video explores God’s work in the world and how it relates to Coronavirus and to your life.
Many people feel completely alone in this world. Even some people who are rich and famous and seem to be surrounded by people who adore them still feel lonely. In this video, I hope to help those who have felt in despair because of loneliness by sharing some words of truth from the Lord Jesus. The truth is that you are never alone.
Christians believe that Jesus died on the cross for the sins of the world and that anyone who believes in Jesus is forgiven of sins and has the promise of eternal life. But what about the people who lived before Jesus died on the cross? If Jesus is the only way to be forgiven and saved, what happened to all those people? Those people were saved in the same way people are saved today: by faith. People who trusted in God to forgive their sins were saved by faith. Think of salvation like a credit card. The people who lived before Jesus ran up a huge debt, and Jesus paid the bill later.
