Nobody Saw It Coming

Posted by Regi Campbell on March 25, 2019

In a recent post, I shared some thoughts on Tim Keller’s assessment of modern culture. How people today are “living their truth” instead of “living the Truth.” Honestly, that post left me depressed and sad. The Christian life of meaning, contentment, and hope amid suffering sounds pretty lofty when compared to the notion of doing…

Identity or Theology?

Posted by Regi Campbell on March 21, 2019

Okay, this may seem like a “which came first, the chicken or the egg?” kind of question, but which comes first . . . believing in God or knowing about God? Over the years, the church seems to have followed the logic that if we learn enough about God, we’ll believe in Him. So, we…

Your Truth or His Truth

Posted by Regi Campbell on March 18, 2019

One of our board members recently spent time with Tim Keller, who has written numerous books, built a thriving church in New York City, and is now working on a church planting movement in the cities of America. He’s become one of the most respected voices on Christianity, the church, and modern-day culture. Here’s a…

Created to Look Forward

Posted by Regi Campbell on January 24, 2019

Consider these verses . . . “For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39…

When Tears Appear, the Spirit is Near

Posted by Regi Campbell on December 20, 2018

Here’s a new one for you . . . when tears appear, the Spirit is near. Ok, it’s not in the Bible. My words, not His. But it’s my experience. Let me explain. And don’t go ‘deep theology’ on me, at least not until you’ve heard me out. There are two kinds of spirits people…

People Are More Committed to Their Own Ideas Than to Yours

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 29, 2018

If you want to get someone behind an idea, help them come to it themselves. They never resist their own ideas but they’ll almost always resist yours. I believe this is why God came up with the idea of placing the Holy Spirit inside us when we accept His offer of forgiveness, redemption, and sonship….

The Holy Spirit (Part 2)

Posted by Regi Campbell on August 23, 2018

On Monday, I explained how I’ve experienced the Holy Spirit. I used the analogy of the cellular network and how becoming a Christian activates the SIM card in our spirits, enabling God the Father to speak and listen to His children through the cellular network of the Holy Spirit. So if the Holy Spirit is…

The Holy Spirit (Part 1)

Posted by Regi Campbell on August 20, 2018

Have we forgotten about the third person of the Godhead? Seems like it sometimes. Why? Because we can’t explain Him easily. Jesus? He is God’s son. ‘God in a bod.’ Not a simple paradigm but understandable. God? He’s the Father. Imagine the perfect father and you’re there. Any detailed questions go into the categories of…

Knowing All You’re Supposed To

Posted by Regi Campbell on August 13, 2018

I don’t know about you, but every now and then, I get hung up on something and struggle to get by it. Sometimes, it’s a theological question, like if God is all good where did evil come from? I spent three months in a funk brought on by that question. When my wife’s sister died…

“God Told Me”

Posted by Regi Campbell on July 16, 2018

There’s a little twinge in my spirit when I hear the words “God told me” come out of someone’s mouth (including my own). Did He? Does He? How do you know it was God? What’s our motive for qualifying what we’re about to say with “God told me.” Are we trying to sound ‘super-spiritual’? Do…
