Sometimes we’re tempted to question God’s Word. “Is that really true?” we might have thought.

Other times we’re tempted to change God’s Word, even just slightly, to suit our purposes? “I mean, what’s a word here or there? One word doesn’t make much difference, does it?”

It’s a statement I hear from time to time: I don’t care what people think of me! Some people seem to think it is some sort of noble virtue to not care at all what other people think of them. Even in the world of Conservative Evangelical online nonsense, the idea gets b...

Have you noticed how easily we stretch the truth? Exaggerate a little here, embellish a bit there, liven our story with some additions peppered throughout? We are intentionally vague, evasive, and even aim to deceive our hearers. We fib. We tell little-white overstatem...
