What’s Your Mountain?

Posted by Regi Campbell on June 17, 2019

Confession . . . I’ve always had heartburn over Jesus’ promise in Mark 11:23 that I can instruct a mountain to “be taken up and thrown into the sea,” and if I believe and “[do] not doubt in [my] heart,” “it will come to pass.” Do people with super-strong faith have that kind of power…

Slave or Son?

Posted by Regi Campbell on June 6, 2019

Thinking back on the theology I was taught in my early years, somehow love one another didn’t get through (maybe I wasn’t paying attention). Oh, I understood good Samaritan love . . . helping the old lady down the street with her yard work. Or putting the neighbor’s newspaper behind the screened door. This kind…

The Altar Call

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 23, 2019

When I tell my faith story, I usually mention my trip down the aisle . . . how I was saved and baptized at 12 years old. Because I didn’t want to go to hell when I died, becoming a Christian seemed like a no-brainer. My friend John says, “What you save people from determines…

What Do I Expect From God?

Posted by Regi Campbell on May 16, 2019

You can’t receive love from someone you don’t trust. Think about it. If I don’t trust you, how can I possibly believe you when they say you love me? Even when you do something loving, I’ll be suspicious of your motives if I don’t trust you. Trust breaks down when people don’t do what we…

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….
