  2. All I need to know about your spiritual condition, I can discover by watching you drive your car. What I’ve learned is that everyone is a lawbreaker, including me. It’s as simple as asking a few short questions about your driving habits...
  3. I apologize for my part in making Christmas necessary. I have learned that Christ is NOT the reason for the season, I am.
  4. I’m a life-long New Yorker, and I have the pleasure of working minutes from the neighborhood I grew up in as a boy.

  6. Today, I almost died several times.
  7. If you’ve been in church long enough, you might have seen the worst of someone’s unrepentant sin get them kicked out, cast out, excommunicated or “handed over to Satan so their flesh might die and their soul might live.”
  8. Sometimes I think transparency is the bastard child of Christianity. Everyone is willing to talk about transparency (and its cousin, accountability), but when it walks into the room and stays awhile, most people pretend it doesn’t exist.
