Let’s Hear It For the “Nones”

Written by Bob Crittendon

There is no doubt that the sphere of religious practice is changing before our very eyes.  We have beheld the development of a variety of worship styles, a broadening of the types of churches where people will worship, and a significant group of people who either do not worship at all or are what we might called unaffiliated or even unchurched.

There has been this frequent struggle that ensues this time of the year over the amount of commercialism that we allow into our Christmas celebration.  We say that we desire a simpler holiday celebration and try to keep the focus on our Savior’s birth, but we end up getting caught up in the shopping frenzy and the age-old questions about what we’re going to give the kids for Christmas, what sort of tie we’re going to buy for the dad who has everything, where we’re going to spend Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, the week after Christmas, and so on and so forth.

A Little Good News

Written by Bob Crittendon


The news that the church in America is in decline has some statistical support – you’ve probably heard that church attendance is decreasing, churches are closing, and fewer people profess a belief in God.  But, writing off the church – the entity, as described in Scripture – is premature.

The Superiority of the Gospel

Written by Bob Crittendon


The apostle Paul wrote in the first chapter of Romans that he was not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes.  So often, I think we look at the gospel as simply the message that Christ came to save sinners, and that by accepting Him, we become saved and we get to go to heaven.

Are We a Christian Nation?

Written by Bob Crittendon

A recent survey provides some material for consideration about our nation’s history and our current condition. A select group participated in the June 2012 Evangelical Leaders Survey, commissioned by the National Association of Evangelicals. Some 68 percent of those surveyed agreed that America is not a Christian nation, while 32 said it is. Of the 32 percent who said the United States is a Christian nation, most indicated that they did so because the U.S. was founded with Christian principles or because there are more Christians in the nation than followers of any other religion.

God is Speaking…Are You Listening?

Written by Bob Crittendon

It is truly amazing – there is a cacophony of communication in the culture around us. Various types of media compete for our attention, and voices from an assortment of worldviews present inferior alternatives to God’s truth. The multiplicity can be distracting and overwhelming, but I am confident that our Lord has numerous ways to communicate His truth to us personally and to the people with whom we come in contact.

Chasing After the Afterlife

Written by Bob Crittendon

We can be so consumed with our lives here and now that we don’t pause very often to think about what happens after we leave this earth. I believe that if we develop a greater awareness of heaven, it can impact the way we live our lives now.

Tracing the Hand of God

Written by Bob Crittendon

Quite often in this space, I highlight aspects of the culture, not always positive, of which we need to be aware and offer ideas on how we can be responsive and influential regarding cultural trends. For this month’s column, I want to celebrate FIVE areas where I am observing that God is working in a profound way through his people.
