Stop Putting God in a Box!

September 26, 2022

We often hear people use this phrase but what does it really mean? Why do some professing Christians accuse others of limiting God? How is God put in a box? We look into the biblical implications of this statement.

VOR Rewind - Platforming Survivors in the Church

August 13, 2022

This week, we look back at when Chris and Rich responded to objections raised to Chris' article "Should We Platform Survivors to End Abuse in The Church?" Some readers questioned if the article sought to silence victims, if the Bible was truly the best source to treat trauma, and who is the church platforming? Chris and Rich seek to answer the objections biblically and with grace in a topic that can often be controversial.
