Writer Greg Stier gives a humorous take on the current trend: Is it me or is there a growing number of theologically conservative preachers, teachers and seminary students who just seem ticked off all of the time?

"I Learned About Girls" Or Why I Love Discipling

J: But how come she never asked for my number? Like, "Oh, by the way, what's your number?"
Me: Because girls don't ask for a guy's numbers. It's the other way around. Guys are supposed to be the pursuer.

I don’t know what to feel about this, other than it is his life and that I know God has his back. But I do pray that God will use him in that fraternity so that he will be an “aroma of Christ” (2 Corinthians 2:15). I also pray that he will be strong when faced with temptations (James 1:12) that the fraternity life tends to bring. In any case, I’m excited for him and glad...
