The Battle - I Don't Know and I Don't Care

Randy Christian

What’s the difference between apathy and ignorance? I don’t know and I don’t care. Of course, these don’t describe Christians, right? But how would we know? And what do we do about it if we find out these are present in our lives?

The Battle - Loneliness

Randy Christian

In a metroplex of over 17 million people, isolation and loneliness is still extraordinarily common. In fact, one of the greatest ironies in the church is that people who are part of a community of such love and diversity can feel so alone. How do we deal with such loneliness, and realize the benefit of living in such a loving community?

The Battle - Doubt

Randy Christian

Christians fear doubt. We don’t want to be seen as “doubters”. We label people who are honest about their doubt as “shaky in their faith” or “doubting Thomases”. We have pat answers and we expect people to “put away” their doubts as though they aren’t real. As a result, many Christians deny their doubt—allowing it to build until it overwhelms them. How can we win the battle against doubt?

Mental and emotional illness is real—but is it spiritual? Is there a connection between mental and emotional illness and faith? How should Christians deal with these conditions in the people we love—and how should we deal with them in our own lives?

The Battle - The Fight

Randy Christian

Americans admire warriors. We honor—even idolize elite military people. And sometimes we let that carry over to how we approach spiritual things. We want to fight—and we see ourselves as capable of winning the spiritual battles we encounter. But this fight is different than most of us understand. What is spiritual fighting, and how can we insure victory?
