And then there are the Bible verses that get taken out of context to mean something other than what they actually say. At Higher Things, we want you to know the truth (and the Truth). In this column, we will take apart these false ideas and DEBUNK the confusing myths to keep you from going astray.

Rev. Jake Sletten is the pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church and School in Freistatt, Missouri. He thinks the mission of Higher Things is exciting: to help raise up new generations of believers for the Gospel.

He is husband to Courtney, and dad to MJ, Bradley, and Emma. He loves going on dates with his wife, grilling on his Weber, coaching his kids' basketball teams, watching basketball (mainly his Los Angeles Clippers), and reading books about dragons.   
Katie Hill is the managing editor of Higher Things. When she’s not silently correcting everyone’s grammar, she enjoys fostering and fine-tuning the writing of authors who deliver the sweetness of the Gospel to Higher Things readers and beyond. A Lutheran convert for 15 years now, Katie has been working for HT in some capacity for nearly that same amount of time. She relishes life in a small town in northern Arizona with her husband, Jeff, and five children, two and a half of whom have left the nest.
