“By identifying a church as "unhealthy" I do not mean that it merely has problems. All churches have problems, no churches are perfect. Further, churches go through phases that are difficult, analogous to any normally healthy person being sick for a few days. An unhealthy church has certain problems that are not only debilitating, but are also pers…
 
“Here are 4 ways I’ve seen people play church and mask the reality of their life:Happiness – They put on a false smile so you can’t see the tears they want to shed.Humor – Some people hide the drama of their life by laughing off the pain.

In the Bible, there is a moment when God says about humans, "they have become like us." Well, who exactly is "us" there, and what does it mean to become like gods? As humans, we have immense power to create and destroy, but perhaps the thing that makes us *most* like "the gods" is our ability to decide what we will believe about them. Even if we we…

"Building on Hume, we see that the fallibility of human reasoning means that a person cannot obtain absolute certainty in any matter save for trivial cases where a statement is true by definition (as in, "all bachelors are unmarried" or "all triangles have three angles").

"White colonials “compromised the message of Christianity to accommodate slavery,” evangelizing slaves to fulfill Jesus’ mandate “to make disciples of all nations,” freeing their souls for heaven, but withholding liberation on earth.

Do we have to agree in order to get along? Or maybe it's more accurate to say we agree *to* get along. The Greek word "symphoneo," from which we our English word "symphony" simply means "to sound together" — not necessarily to sound alike. It's likely impossible for us to ever find someone who agrees with us on everything, and instead of those diff…

"I think people often mix up what 'good' sexual health is," therapist Lisa Hochberger, M.Ed. tells Bustle.
