"Fight for your Right," an American Blight

"Fight for your Right," an American Blight

To say we have a problem with entitlement in our culture is the understatement of the century. You're special, I'm special, everyone's special.

"You deserve love. You deserve happiness. You deserve comfort.
You deserve the realization of all your deepest desires and dreams."

We buy into the narrative. We begin to expect love, happiness, comfort. Where is it?
Why hasn't it been delivered within 2 days? Where's the UberEats of happiness? 

Eternal Perspective on Singleness & Marriage

Eternal Perspective on Singleness & Marriage

The weekly newsletter comes a few hours earlier than usual, because I'm headed to a funeral this morning. Though I'm grieving with the family, I'm also rejoicing for the incredible impact this godly woman had on thousands of eternal souls. Though most of you have never heard of Evgenia Krupko Harlov, apart from her faithful life and witness, Mosaic Boston would not be what it is today.

Lust kills Love. Love kills Lust.

Lust kills Love. Love kills Lust.

June is Pride Month. Next Saturday, June 8th, thousands of our dear neighbors will proudly walk the streets of Boston in the Pride Parade. Should we go? What should we say to our friends when invited? How do we think through potential conversations? How do we, as Christians, think about this very real and deeply personal issue. 

We put on our Gospel glasses and look though the lenses of God's Love and God's Truth.

Loving Correction

Loving Correction

At the foundation of our society is the assumption of moral relativism, making tolerance our chief virtue. Each person gets to decide what's right and wrong, good and evil. As long as you're not hurting anyone, live and let live. There's no such thing as categorical sin or evil.

The only sin left is to call something sin. 
The only evil left is to call something evil.

E Pluribus Unum: Out of the Many, One.

E Pluribus Unum: Out of the Many, One.

As we continue our series, "Prodigal Church" through 1st Corinthians, we see that the startup church has become rife with division. The One has turned into the Many, as they begin to lose their trust in God, and start to place it in leaders. Competing cliques are threatening to tear the church apart. How does God help them heal?

New Series: Prodigal Church, a series in 1 Corinthians

New Series: Prodigal Church, a series in 1 Corinthians

This summer we are going through a series in 1 Corinthians called "Prodigal Church." Why call it "Prodigal Church"? Because the nascent church in the city of Corinth is going through an identity crisis. Corinth, like Boston, was a diverse, influential, thriving, world-class city. It was the center of business, education, and technological advancement. People from all over the Roman Empire would flock to Corinth to make a life, and a name for themselves. Like Boston, Corinth was also a godless city. Christians were under immense pressure to capitulate to the culture instead of creating a new one.
