Individualism is Dead…Or It Should Be


My friends over at recently ran an article I wrote.  Below is an excerpt:

I think, therefore I am. One simple phrase that Descartes penned helped define a worldview for a future generation.

No longer would humanity be fettered with group-think, old wives’ tales and crude explanation. No, we would be released into the glorious future of rationalistic reasoning and society would soar to new heights.

Centuries have passed, technology has thrived and yet there is trouble in paradise. Behind every great historical advance, unintended consequences lurk.

You can read the rest here.  I’m thankful for the continued opportunity to write, and am praying that the Lord would use the words I’m writing to encourage and challenge churches, church leaders, Christians and non-Christians alike!

Although I was raised in the church and had a knowledge of God, I didn’t embrace Jesus until I heard gospel preached and lived out by some Young Life leaders. God has proven faithful and good to me since that day, even in great suffering and loss. I have learned to treasure Romans 8:28 as a wellspring of hope and truth.

God has blessed me with an amazing wife (Olivia), three sons (Micah, Hudson and Owen) and a daughter (Emmaline). Growing up in the northwest, the thought never crossed my mind that I would have four children who are native Texans. Despite landing in the south, I still watch Notre Dame games with my children every Saturday in hopes they will land at my alma mater.
