In a society where image is highly regarded, looking uncool can be a huge deterrent to preaching the Gospel. Our pride can cause us to remain silent if we don’t fully surrender it to Jesus. Check out this new episode of “Why Am I Silent?”, where we discuss this issue.
My band No Longer Music recently played at a Christian festival. After we had finished our show, we decided to check out the festival headliner. The arena was full when they played and their charismatic singer connected well with the audience.

Do we value success over what God is calling us to do? This time on “Why Am I Silent?”, we take a look at how we can be unwilling to present the Gospel’s message clearly through our art, due to the inherent risk of forfeiting fame or commercial success.

We're All Hypocrites!

Ask anyone on the street what their biggest problem with Christians is and many will undoubtedly respond, "They're all hypocrites!" This is not a recent phenomenon, as even Mahatma Gandhi is known to have said, “I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians.” I for one don’t need to be told that I’m a hypocrite; I already know that. And to be fair, this label is not unique to followers of Jesus - it’s a human thing.
Sometimes as artists/musicians, we may remain silent because not all the members of our group/band agree that we should share the Gospel through our art. What should you do if there’s division on this issue? We discuss this and more in this new episode of “Why Am I Silent?”.
Do I really need to preach the Gospel? Isn’t relational evangelism enough? In this episode of “Why Am I Silent?”, we talk about the mindset that preaching is unnecessary and that proclamation evangelism is outdated and ineffective in our culture.

How Hungry Are You?

Over the years, I’ve adopted various methods for coming into a deeper, more focused connection with God. I once quieted myself on a silent retreat for several days at a Catholic monastery in Bourbon County, Kentucky, where most of the Colombia [Esto Es Reino] script was handwritten. Since my college days twenty years ago, I’ve fasted from food on many (though far from all) Fridays. Back in those university days, a friend of mine and I worked at Pizza Hut on Friday nights. We’d push each other to refrain from eating until after the dinner rush - not out of obligation, but rather from a place of desperation to see God moving in our lives.
