Bio: Zack currently resides in Wake Forest, North Carolina with his wife Jessica and his son Isaac. He is a graduate from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte with a BA in religious studies, and is currently working towards an M’Div with a focus in Christian apologetics at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.

About this blog: Plato said, “I am the wisest man alive, for I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing.” This blog is a composition of my reflections on culture, theology, philosophy, and religion. If there is one thing I’ve learned about writing on these topics is that the more I learn, the more I feel that I know nothing. I have written things in the past that I’m not sure that I’m not sure I would articulate that way, or completely agree with today. So I try more and more to enter into these conversations with an open mind and a sympathetic heart. In short, I get things wrong. But it is my hope to both provoke thought on these matters and to be provoked.

Influences: William Lane Craig, Alvin Plantinga, Timothy Keller, Gregory Boyd, C. S. Lewis, Francis Schaeffer, N. T. Wright.

  2. I am not a Christian but I am enjoying reading your blog. You have a lot of wisdom, it’s disappointing to see that after reading your posts, what I see are comments about your typographical errors. I think people should maybe re-read the posts because if all they get is spelling mistakes, they are really missing out.

    Thank you.

  3. Thank you so much for your blogs! They really are Christ like: humble, gentle, loving, and full of truth. I’ve enjoyed reading them, and they have challenged me to speak and act more as He has called me to be. “As a prisoner of the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in live.” Ephesians 4:1-2

  4. Through a friend’s Facebook post, I just discovered your writings today. I think I will be reading a lot more of what you have to say. I have only read two of your posts but they both shared great wisdom in reminding Christians to act and speak in love as well as to remember that ultimately God is in control and other is nothing we (humans) can do to undo His power and plans. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. You have put into clear and concise words thoughts that I only stumble over when trying to explain them to others.

  5. Hi, My name is Jeff Bales and leave in Pahrump, NV with partner Bruce. I was raised a Southern Baptist (orginally from Birmingham, AL) but never believe in the Bible and stopped to going to church a long, long time ago, partly because of all the hyprocrisy that I saw.

    I thank you for posting “Christians, Be Careful What You Say On Facebook”. It’s good to see that you that you put this out on your blog. You remind me a high school friend that became a pastor and doesn’t spit out hateful things too. I almost put your blog on my Facebook account but decided not to.

    Cheers,
    Jeff Bales

  6. I read your msg warning Christians to be careful in their responses to culturally harmful lifestyle choices and was encouraged by it. I’m not sure how you have the ability to see the content of the writers’ searches (mine too? scary). Anyway, it’s just been a year now that I’ve come to the same conclusion that if we are to share Christ’s gospel then it is imperative that our responses are written with truth, hope and love. God’s peace to you and in your continued service.

  7. Hi Zack,

    I read your article, “Be Careful What You Say on Facebook.” I love it. I wholeheartedly agree. I serve as a missionary with Jews for Jesus in Florida, but spent 12 years in San Francisco and had many conversations with gay people. I loved engaging them in conversation and being the opposite of what they expected me to be. We are all fallen, and I think Tim Keller says it all. I also love the quote from Martin Luther that we are beggars trying to help other beggars find bread. I do hope many read your article. We discussed it at our staff meeting this morning. One book you might be interested in if you haven’t read it already is, “Questioning Evangelism” by Randy Newman. I think you’ll enjoy it.

    • Thank you for reading, Robyn. One of the most helpful things for us to do is to get involved in peoples lives who are radically different from us. The Randy Newman book has been recommended by several friends of mine at the seminary I attend. I appreciate the reminder that I need to pick it up.

  8. Thank you so much for your comments. As Christ stated, we need to pull the log out of our own eyes before we will be able to help the “brother” who is trying to remove a splinter from his own. I have been acquainted with several people who struggled with gender issues and this whole thing is so much broader than most people realize. They actually go through a lot more torment than most people realize. They need the real Jesus Christ just as all the rest of us do.

  10. Hey Zack,
    Just wanted to thank you for the time, effort and consideration you put into each post. I really appreciate how willing you are to admit flaws in yourself and in the church, but that in doing so your desire is to underscore the grace of God. I have really enjoyed and gotten a lot out of reading your posts. May this ministry of yours continue to honour God and may you hold fast to speaking the truth in love!
