Can God Be Too Good? Part 7 by Greg Albrecht

Love or Justice? 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, softhearted and weak. So which is it—love or justice? Is God primarily a God of love or a God ofjustice? Here’s what I see as the fundamental flaw in real, he-man, tough-as-nails Christia...

Real Change – Where Will It Come From? by Greg Albrecht

As the first days of June fall on the land of the free and the home of the brave protestors in the streets demand “real change.” Many politicians say we must “fix racism” once and for all.

Behold, the "full English Breakfast" with gratitude to the Stonehouse Guesthouse in Priorslee, UK.

Right before Christmas, two years ago, it arrived unexpected, a gift. The first time I met Terry, it was because of a friend of a friend, who asked me to come and spend a few hours with him. The Shack has had a profound impact on his life, as well as other inmates. Since then, I have tried to visit every time my travels have taken me through Nashville. This blog was written in the last few days in the wake of my most recent visit. I am fascinated at how the Holy Spirit weaves seasons of focus ...
