Born to Live, Born to Die, Born to Save


It is inescapable during the advent/Christmas season to think about Jesus being born a little baby and being laid in a manger. But for a moment I’d like to zoom out and discuss the broader subject of Jesus. He was prophesied to come, be born to a virgin, in Bethlehem, etc. He is the incarnation, or the putting into flesh the existence of God. He … Continue reading Born to Live, Born to Die, Born to Save

The Christmas Lie


In a post from a few years ago (https://bradflack.com/2017/04/29/candles-prayers-and-motions/) I wrote about the subtle and simple lies that Satan weaves into our traditions, our conversations, our lives.

Attention Deficit Disorder 


Do you, like me, suffer from cultural attention deficit disorder? I don’t mean like ADD which is normally diagnosed in grade school. I mean like modern, American materialism.

I know that during those long, busy seasons of my life I find that for awhile I really enjoy the constant … Continue reading Attention Deficit Disorder
