James Emery White just wrapped up a message series at Mecklenburg Community Church that generated as much response as any series in the church’s history. It was a four-week series titled “Man Up” that looked at the ways men needed to “man up” in four key areas: their wives, sex, fatherhood and leadership.
Countless numbers of men, evidenced by a torrent of emails, felt convicted and challenged to make serious changes in how they were living and walking through life as men.
As you know, the news seems to have been overwhelming, as of late, with stories of domestic violence, child abuse, the widespread consumption of and addiction to pornography…a telling reminder of how easy it is for men to lose their way.
We believe you will find this series a helpful resource for developing a similar set of sermons that will help your church meet this cultural challenge. This series is available on the Message Downloads page of the ChurchandCulture.org site in both PDF and mp3 formats.

The developed world is swimming in debt in a proverbial sea of sharks without a life raft anywhere to be found.
If we have learned nothing about ourselves since 2008 we should now, at bare minimum, know that there are really only two viable options or outcomes to the furtive policies of our central bankers and the governments of the developed world:
1. global economic melancholy or

This is a favorite verse of those pushing ecumenicalism. I want to show you some video clips to prove to you that people use John 17:21 out of context to say that the Catholic Church and the Protestants must come together as one. And they will quote John 17:21 that reads – the prayer of Jesus, “– that they all may be one, as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be one in us, that the world may believe that you sent me.”
Mega Church Bubble Popping In Real Time
I am not sure if we can call the results of this new poll a total victory for the Church Folk Revolution, but we definitely welcome the Good News. A new poll by the Barna Group as caught our attention in a major way because it has confirmed a trend that the Un-Churched segment of our society is growing. Then when you also consider the constant financial burden church adds in the form of tithing, combined with a dwindling middle class, many cash strapped families simply can not afford church. The study also shows that Pastors have become too busy to do home visits, call to check on members, or send letters of concern, all symptoms of the Mega Church Illness. Read more
