One of our aims at The Doxology Project is to provide helpful articles that aid in shaping a holistic and biblical worldview.  We desire to help people see everything in the world as theological (making statements about God). Every slogan, from Burger King’s “have it your way” campaign, to Nike’s iconic “Just Do it” tagline, and every created product from the iPhone to the Droid makes promises of what it will take to apprehend the...

Why Imagination is Key in Evangelism

A person will not believe what they can’t imagine. So, evangelism has to involve imagination.  We have to use our “imaginal intelligence” (imagination) to help the unconverted imagine the reality of GOD, the goodness and love of GOD, the reality of Christ’s payment for our sin, and the benefits of confessing their sin and surrendering their life to HIM. That’s a big order.  In fact, for evangelism to happen, a person MUST find their...

1 John 3:7-10

Little kids, be artless, be not naive Listen not to the scoffer’s deceiving tongue. Only right-doers are right, For he who is righteous never does wrong See only wrong-doers are wrong For he known as devil can’t sing our new song From the get-go he sinned, and ever will sin For this God’s Son was unmasked in God’s Play Destroying the works of the devilish one. Those begotten of God never “will sin”...

Art in Christian Missions

Jesus Makes… In Matthew 4:19 Jesus called his disciples to follow and promised them that He would “make them fishers of men.” The Greek word for make, poieō, has some interesting implications. This word can refer to authorship, production, construction, formation, fashion, commerce, and even performance. In the same way that John the Baptist “prepared”—poieō the way for the Lord, so was Jesus planning to prepare these seemingly earthy...

What is Greatness?

  I don’t know about you, but when I gaze into the heavens, and when I survey the earth and the nature therein, I’m brought to my knees in awe at the wonders of God’s artistry!  No human can deny that there is an awe and majesty to our universe.  It’s simply dumbfounding.  Sadly, however, I have to confess that my response to such encounters with beauty, and the realizations that follow, do not always lead me to a life lived...

Be Still, and Know that I am God

The prophet Habakkuk charged the nation of Judah, and all the earth to be silent before the LORD, resident in his holy temple (Hab 2:20). The context of Habakkuk’s message was the imminent destruction of Jerusalem by the Babylonian armies of King Nebuchadnezzar. The prophet’s admonition still has currency for the people of God today, as the nations continue to rage against God and each other. As we hush before the Lord in his holy...

Evangelism, Imagination, and Artists

No one can believe anything they can’t imagine!!  That reality intimately makes artists and evangelism go together. But what about the importance of the content of evangelism, one might ask?  Most of you reading this blog agree with me about the content of evangelism:  it IS—the objective, existing reality of GOD, the loving work of Christ through which we access the Gospel, and the energizing of His Spirit empowering the Gospel.  ...

My Worth is Not My Own

One of the greatest struggles we each face is the search for significance. Our 21st-century sense of identity is grounded in individualism, self-entitlement, and narcissism. From whom we marry to what career choice we make to what church we attend to what we think of church music, every choice is geared around what these things do for us. This attitude of consumerism is one of the most prevalent idols in Western culture and has become...

The Word. The Word’s how it all began. The Word was. The Word is. The Word will come, for the Word is what he is. He was God & with God before it began.   All of it was made through him. Everything.
