All in Shame

We Want a Celebrity, Not a Savior

In October of 2014 the most influential pastor of his generation was compelled to write his letter of resignation amidst mounting claims of purchasing bestseller status and domineering leadership.

How Lonely Sits the City

Jerusalem is devastated. Having recently been destroyed by her national and religious enemy, Babylon, God’s people found themselves identifying as a grieving widow and former royalty. The city used to be great. History repetitiously told of their conquests and triumphs over other peoples and powers. But now she sits isolated in weakness as a result of her idolatry. Once full of people, she is now filled with agony and left to merely lament the heaviness of guilt and shame.

Word

The Word of God says much about God’s word. It endures forever (Isaiah 40:8). It is profitable (2 Timothy 3:16). It lights our path (Psalm 119:105). It corrects (2 Timothy 3:16). It restores (Psalm 19:7). It reveals (Hebrews 4:13). Recorded and collected into an unassuming piece of technology—a book, with sixty-six volumes, written by forty human writers, and all inspired by God himself—the power and importance of Scriptures cannot be overstated. The Word of God is unlike anything.
