A daily dose of spiritual exercise for men in various stages of their Christian walk

Hewlett-Packard was founded in a garage. Microsoft was started by a small group of smart people who put in the time and effort. Apple started with a wirehead and a master of promotion working overtime. These are the larger-than-life stories that float around my industry and make us all think about starting our own company […]

There is so much emphasis in our country to tolerate everything. This movement is pushing us to a critical mass in almost every area of our lives including faith and conscience. Bit by bit, we have reached the point where pornography of the spirit is becoming the mainstay and not the exception. How far are […]

When attempting to share Jesus with an old friend of mine, I got the brush off when he said, “I’m glad that works for you, but I don’t need it.” There’s all kinds of interesting philosophy in that statement. He has come to the conclusion that faith in Jesus is a means to an end. […]

While I was in high school, I played sports like a lot of guys. Training was the pits as far as I was concerned. Running stairs, pushing sleds, jumping jacks, and the dreaded push-ups were all things I simply disliked. I always trained to get done, not to get into shape or to hone my […]

I was really challenged by something I heard on a podcast from a teacher I trust. He dared to broach the subject of whether or not you can lose your salvation.
