I have found that God does this amazing thing when we are present during the death of a loved one. When the time comes for that person to move on, and when the veil between heaven and earth becomes increasingly thin, God creates what can only be called "holy moments" for those who make themselves truly "present."

It's too easy to chalk up last week's tragedy in a New York church to the actions of a bunch of crazies. It's too easy to simply shake one's head in disgust, flip the page and move past the story without thinking how such a horrific thing might relate to us.

Not long ago, I was having lunch with a few pastor friends of mine when one remarked at how often he sees siblings from the same family, all raised the exact same way in regards to church, approach church involvement very differently as adults. Some become pillars of their church, while others appear quite indifferent (possibly attending or even serving when it is convenient) or completely stay away.

I've had the opportunity to develop and teach a few ethics courses at Armstrong. In those courses, which I base on Christian ethics, I often feel the need to outline for students the distinction between "deontological" and "teleological" motives in ethical decision-making. Let me explain.

One way Jesus taught and reinforced Kingdom values was by reinterpreting laws. In His interpretations, Jesus would emphasize to His listeners the spirit behind a law, instead of the necessity to blindly follow some rule without understanding why it was important. He often explained a law in terms of the fundamental, eternal truth undergirding it - such as the holiness of God - so His audience could see the law in a new light, and understand it as a reflection of righteousness instead of as a burden or yoke. "You have heard it said…., but I say to you…." was one common ...

I will never forget the young man who came to see me years ago about a friend of his. It seemed that every time this young man, who I will call "Joe," began to move forward in his life or career, his friend - who struggled with a substance abuse problem - would have a crisis and Joe would put everything on hold to help him. It was like clockwork, he told me.

Bonnie Parker was a faithful person, perhaps not much different from you or me. She was a dedicated follower of Christ and sincerely wanted to believe with all her heart. Then, she was diagnosed with cancer.

Maybe they were looking for something they felt was missing in their life. Maybe their marriage was on the rocks. Or maybe they were going through a kind of mid-life crisis. Whatever the reason millions of Americans signed up for an account on Ashley Madison - the Web site that specializes in connecting people for the purpose of having an extra-marital affair - those folks must now feel a bit like Michael Douglas in "Fatal Attraction," or perhaps more like the boiled rabbit.

Having spent some time trying to help couples who are struggling in their marriage, I have developed a habit of listening for much of the first few sessions. I answer questions posed to me, but I tend to not interject much.

According to multiple news agencies, over the past few months the Islamic State (ISIS) has determined theologically that its fighters can rape young women - girls, really - as long as they are Christians, Jews, or other "unbelievers." According to ISIS leaders, by doing so, the fighters become closer to God.

Recently, I was asked to share my administrative and managerial philosophies with others. One question posed to me was a first: "What are your non-negotiables?" While I certainly have those things I simply cannot bend on, I have never quite crystallized them or put them in writing.
