A Word From Greg

Heh peeps, the ReKnew Team  had an AWESOME weekend hanging out together and dreaming big dreams about how God wants to use this ministry to further his will.  I am SO blessed to be surrounded by some super-smart, super-creative and super-visionary folks!

The ReKnew Team as well as the leadership of Woodland Hills Church really feels a sense of urgency about spreading the Good News of a Jesus-looking God and a Jesus-looking kingdom. There is a very well-organized and well-funded movement out there that is aggressively putting forth a (to be frank) ugly, unloving, omni-controlling picture of God and an ugly, triumphalist picture of the Kingdom — neither of which look anything like the self-sacrificial God & kingdom that we find in Jesus. It’s time for those who have been captivated by the beauty of the true God revealed in Jesus to work-together to proclaim this vision!

Please keep ReKnew as well as Woodland Hills Church in prayer. And pray about how God wants to use YOU in this movement.

Stay tuned to ReKnew.org and whchurch.org.  Good things are coming!  A Jesus-looking movement is already on the rise!  Join it!

Blessings,

Greg

Last Minute Preparations

We’re all busy here at ReKnew making last minute preparations for the Open2013 conference here in St. Paul, MN. It’s our first ever event of this kind and there’s a nervous energy and anticipation. I wonder if you’ll hold this up in prayer if you weren’t able to join us? We have a last minute…

Why Bart Ehrman Doesn’t Have to Ruin Your Christmas (Or Your Faith) Part 4

This is the fourth of several videos Greg put together to refute Bart Ehrman’s claims published in the article What Do We Really Know About Jesus? We hope you’re enjoying these! They really provide a great overall approach to Biblical Criticism. If you missed the first three installments you can find them here, here and here.

The Benefit of the Doubt

In my last two posts (here and here) I’ve given five arguments against the common way Evangelical Christians tend to think about faith. More specifically, I’m calling into question the assumption that a person’s faith is as strong as they are free of doubt. I’ll conclude this line of questioning today by offering four other…

Reflections on the Supremacy of Christ (Part 1)

In my previous post I argued that the Bible tells a story in which the culminating event – the coming of Christ – reframes everything that preceded it. Though it is all inspired, not everything in it should carry equal weight for us. Rather, everything leading up to Christ, including the portraits of God, must…

How to Overcome the Flesh Mindset

Unless you have taken intentional steps to change, the way you presently experience yourself and the world around you was mostly chosen for you, not by you. Think about that. You inherited a way of interpreting the world. Your brain has been in the process of becoming programmed by factors outside your control from the…
