The 20 year old dad at the cafe

daddaughter

My job consists of me driving around from cafe to cafe, finding wifi and designing websites. Normally I won't witness anything enthusing. In fact, on more than one occasion I've heard people brag about their partying over the weekend and how drunk they got. Another time I heard two people talking about their marital problems, and long story short they were having an affair with one another (if you're a guy, don't be stupid and go to a woman for counselling, go to your pastor or an older man). … [Read more...]

Some Revised Calvinistic Parables..

parables

What man of you, having no sheep, does not leave his home and go after a sheep that has never been in his possession?  And when he has found a sheep that has also been looking for him, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing.  And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying:  “Rejoice with me, for this sheep and I have found one another!” Or what woman, possessing no silver coins, if she desires some money, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefull … [Read more...]

Are You Embarrassed?

embarrassed

For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. – Mark 8:38 That above statement of Jesus is one of my life verses (yeah, I’ve got life verses). It has both increased my boldness to be public about my convictions and also changed the way I interpret thorny issues.  Christ is saying, just after Peter confesses Him as Messiah and calling the d … [Read more...]

Spitting into the Sky

At the end of C S Lewis’ Til We Have Faces there is this amazing scene. The protagonist, Orual, at the end of her life comes to face the gods. She has long had complaints against them for how they run their universe and the circumstances she has endured. She comes with her case against them – a large book – but arriving finds only a small scrap of paper scribbled with accusations. She reads her complaints to them again and again but they do not respond. In the end it is her complaint against the … [Read more...]

Our Unlawful Government

ourunlawfulgovernment

The United States of America was founded upon religious ideals. From the beginning when congress would gather they would first open every meeting in prayer, seeking wisdom and guidance from God above. 12 out of the 13 states had a tax created for the growth of churches and the preaching of the gospel. The American law was founded upon God’s law, the same law that is imprinted on our hearts and the same law that is the only absolute declaration of what is right and wrong in all of human h … [Read more...]

Can’t seem to break that one sin?

onesin

Ambrose (340-397) writes: Often we hear talk about fleeing from this world, and I wish that the mind were as careful and circumspect as talk is easy! But, what is worse, the allurement of earthly lusts frequently creeps in, and influx of vanities takes over the mind, so that what you endeavour to avoid, you think about and turn over in your mind. It is difficult for a man to guard against this, but impossible for him to get rid of it. Indeed, in this matter the wish exceeds the accomplishment, … [Read more...]

The Death Of New Calvinism

deathofcalvinism

I would be considered to be apart of this "New Calvinism"(The Gospel Coalition, Desiring God, etc.). I wasn't raised in a Reformed church, in fact the church is probably the furthest (well not quite) away from the Reformers. The Reformers put to death the type of people (Anabaptists) that formed the kind of church that I attended. Anyways, I first came in contact with the theological framework called Calvinism from a YouTube video that I watched over 3 years ago. I'm clearly not a veteran in the … [Read more...]
