Courage is Not Winning

Editor’s Note: In a recent blog, Leonce Crump does a wonderful and pithy job of addressing our need to end up on top. We’ve placed it below. I hope it blesses. Do you always have to win?

Judging Rightly

There was a time when John 3:16 was the most well-known verse in the Bible. That is no longer the case. Now, the most well-known verse in the Bible is Matthew 7:1: Judge not, that you be not judged. And this is no surprise. We live in a day and age when few are willing to be held accountable to absolute truth and relativism is the going flavor of the day. And, though it often gets left off...
