I Want to See

By Greg Albrecht— For the last time during his earthly ministry, Jesus was en route to Jerusalem. He had only a few days left in his earthly life—with every step he took toward Jerusalem he knew he was that much closer to the awful pain and suffering that awaited him. The road took him through Jericho, a city located about 17 miles northeast of Jerusalem. It was just before Passover—one of the three times in the year when pilgrims traveled to Jerusalem to celebrate the feasts of the old covenant. So the road was crowded with travelers, and as a result there were many others alongside the road—small businessmen and entrepreneurs, as well as ...

“Break It Up” by Ed Dunn

We received a distressing email from our Mom the other day. Both the tone and the content of her words were uncharacteristic, and alarmed my brothers and sisters and me to a point of picking up the phone. Over a series of calls at different times, we needed to make sure she was okay. Our Mom’s message expressed a deep concern for everything that’s been happening in our nation today - the political divides, the racial divides, the economic divides, and the fact that no one seems to be listening to anyone, anymore. She lamented how far we’ve come, so fast, and that, not in a positive direction. She then went on to worry about the world her ...

The Jesus Train

Love or Justice?

by Greg Albrecht The discussion of eternal torment and the fate of the "unsaved" is often framed, by the law and order crowd, as a matter of God's love or his justice. Those who are intent on relegating those who, to their knowledge and satisfaction, have never heard or accepted their version of Christianity to eternal torture, often characterize those, like myself, who primarily look for answers based on God's love and grace, as soft-headed, soft-hearted and weak. So which is it—love or justice? Is God primarily a God of love or a God of justice? Here's what I see as the fundamental flaw in real, he-man, tough-as-nails Christianity: ...
