Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves – Romans 12:10
We are all sinners doing sinful things, and yet God calls us to be Holy. He calls us to remain unstained by the world around us. Dealing with the sin in our lives is incredibly important, but what about the sins of those around us? How would Jesus want us to treat those who fall short of his standards?

Cries of the Past - the C&L! Story

Takehold Records, the record label I was running (circa 1998 - 2001) single-handedly with ZERO music or business experience, was in serious financial trouble. Though I later saw success in signing Takehold acts like Underoath - it was God’s divine mercy and intervention when Tooth and Nail Records out of Seattle agreed to acquire the failing company and pull me out of a desperate situation.

Calling or ambition?

Some years ago we toured Eastern Turkey. It was one of the hardest tours I’ve ever been on. In the van on the way the organiser told us about radical Islamists in the area beating women for wearing the wrong clothes. I wondered how our show might go down there. We arrived in one town to play an outdoor concert and found a hole in the ground in the place where the stage was supposed to be.

We Need More Riots!

The first time we played in Beirut, Lebanon, hundreds of people gathered to hear the concert. The crowd was very attentive, and I could feel the power of the Holy Spirit during our show. 
After the concert, I told them that only Jesus rose from the dead and because of that it is possible for us to know God.  Suddenly fistfights broke out in the crowd between those who wanted to attack us and those who liked what I was saying and wanted to defend us.

Can I celebrate the success of others?

Every summer for the past decade, I have gone on tour with No Longer Music. This has become so embedded into my routine; it’s hard to imagine life any other way. I believe this is what God has put me on earth to do.

Still, even a call from God can be corrupted.
This month I had the privilege to travel to LA/Orange County and the UK/Wales. Neither place has hardly a thing in common other than several friends and opportunities I don’t deserve, including stepping foot into (and back out of again) prison courtyards and sharing my story with new brothers and sisters in gorgeous, sheep-filled hills of mid-Wales.
For many Christian artists, the Gospel has gone out of style. In some cases, it's even seen as a negative thing. It may never be said that explicitly, but the Gospel is seen as “too intense” or “fundamental” or “old-school,” somehow less sophisticated, and not appropriate for our modern times.

Kill Your Dreams

We live in a narcissistic age. An age of extreme selfishness. Because of this, God is often presented as someone who exists to meet our needs. We are told, that Jesus came to satisfy my desires.
