Adult-Sized Toddlers

Posted by William Battle on

“Here, let me help you.” “No! I can do it myself!” Anyone who has ever been the parent of a toddler has heard these words so many times, that we can almost hear it in our sleep. (Parents, I can almost see you chuckling as you read this and nod your heads.) From tying...

Satan and The Usual Suspects

Posted by William Battle on

In the 1995 movie The Usual Suspects, a con man — Roger “Verbal” Kint — is brought in for questioning in regards to a cargo boat explosion. During the conversation, Kint tells the police that this might be the result of an elusive (sometimes considered mythical) drug lord...

The Origin Of Racism

Posted by William Battle on

Racism isn’t a genetic trait. It’s a learned behavior, a product of social norms, history, stereotypes and prejudices, right? Well, not so fast. For the student taking an undergraduate class in sociology or anthropology, this is of course the typical response. But for the Christian...

Rooms Available — Sinners Welcome

Posted by William Battle on

The Pioneer Of SparkNotes

Posted by William Battle on

“Christian minds have been conformed to the modern spirit: the spirit, that is, that spawns great thoughts of man and leaves room for only small thoughts of God.” ― J.I. Packer, Knowing God Growing up, I loved sparknotes.com. For those of you unaware of this little jewel, then...

One Small Step For Man

Posted by William Battle on

God dragged me into ministry kicking and screaming. That’s not something that you hear from most people that work at the church, although it might be more common than you would think. When it came to the thought of doing ministry full time, I was almost perplexed by the number of people...

The Danger of Comfort

Posted by William Battle on

“In any given moment we have two options: to step forward into growth, or to step back into safety.” — Abraham Maslow I think Abraham Maslow only got this partially right. At any given moment, we have two options: to step forward into growth or to step back into safety, which...
