No Reason, No Justice (Apology)

Justice is hard to find in these perilous times. if you are a Christian in the parts of Syria no longer controlled by the government, martyrdom and God’s justice on the other side of the sword are your only hope. If you live in parts of the world, the rich can buy justice while the [Read More…]

What does God need with a Star Ship?

God has “needs” . . . which seems odd. In the worst of the original series Star Trek movies (still better than any of the Next Generation films), the aging crew goes looking for Eden and God. Since this feels like the plot of half the original series television programs, I need not explain further except to say that [Read More…]

Waiting for Constantine

Conservatives are rightly skeptical of great men. For every Lincoln, there is a string of Harding, Hoover, Dewey, Taft mediocrities. Worse, few great men are like Washington, able to give up power when they have it. instead, they become Napoleon, a great man who went the wrong way for all the right motives. Christians know [Read More…]

Christianity and the Cultural Crisis

I outlined the tensions of our era in a brief lecture at The Saint Constantine School a week ago Thursday. Our Provost Dr. Robert Stacey spent time outlining three challenges we face in the United States. . . a talk proved prophetic within twenty-four hours. Do listen to an academic leader of this revolutionary k-college [Read More…]

Miracles, Belief, Politics, and a Sane Life

Miracles in a Sane Life I once watched a person run from a meeting cursing God. My father followed the man out of the meeting and rebuked demonic powers in the name of Jesus. The fleeing man flew up in the air exactly as if he had been cross body blocked. He did not crumple, [Read More…]

Listening to Lucy: The Short Way to God

The know-nothing and the pseudo-intellectual are the same personality type in different zip codes. The know-nothing cannot be taught, because even the possibility he might be wrong enrages him. The pseudo-intellectual cannot be taught, because he already knows the truth and has the credentials to prove it. This is even true of the pseudo-Socratic personality [Read More…]

What Easter Tells Us About Christianity and Reason

Meet an “Internet atheist” (as opposed to someone in higher education) and you will hear that “faith” is opposed or incompatible with reason. No. That’s not what most Christians believe. Cite Thomas Aquinas, John Chrysostom, and CS Lewis as examples of Christians who gave reasons for faith and you are met with a blank stare. [Read More…]

Under the Plane Tree: Where Desire Meets Power

Love cannot abide the abuse of power. Or so it seems to me after a weekend watching politics and reading Phaedrus with friends. We were led by Professor Al Geier and the contrast between the two activities was remarkable. Politics is, probably rightly, about winning. If you have to get it done in South Carolina [Read More…]

Nations Are Not You and Me OR You Can be Saved but the Nation Cannot

If I take your money without your consent, it is called “stealing.” If the government takes your money without your consent, it is called taxation. Government can do things that individuals cannot, thank God. Of course, Americans would argue that even if I personally oppose taxes, I must pay them. Why? Even if my candidate [Read More…]

A Wee Little Man

When I was a little boy, the only thing I knew about this man was that he was small. Later I realized that he was a tax collector and nobody has to tell someone from West Virginia the government is bad and the tax collectors are the worst of the worst. Later when I was [Read More…]
