Reading Time: 9 minutes Yesterday, I offered you an overview of the personal-level strategy he suggests, friendship evangelism. Today, I want to show you Lee Strobel’s absolutely callous and blatantly opportunistic twist on that old, old strategy.
Reading Time: 10 minutes Hi and welcome back! I woke up super-late with a migraine and had to take medication for it, so no blitzed movie review today. But that’s fine, cuz we still have Lee Strobel’s dumb list to work our way through. In this installment, we cover observations 9-12. Here, we see exactly what this apologist’s product really […]
Reading Time: 7 minutes Just as I was wrapping up my post yesterday evening, my state experienced a very strong earthquake.

Nobody’s even surprised by any of it anymore; it’s all become just part of our cultural landscape: hypocrites gonna hypocrite.
