I’m A Progressive Who Admires The Courage And Integrity of Ted Cruz

It’s no secret– I’m not a fan of Ted Cruz. In fact, I found him to be the least desirable out of all the of the Republican candidates who sought the presidency this year. I believe his ideology is dangerous. I believe his ideas are wrong. And as a fellow Christian, I think Ted Cruz has [Read More…]

I’m A Privileged White Guy, So I’m Giving Away My Vote This Election

It’s the height of election season in Americaland. While many of us probably already feel over-saturated from an election cycle that lasts waaaaaay too long, the intensity of the election is about to hit its final stretch as both the Republicans and Democrats kick off their conventions this month.

5 Reasons You Might Want To Stop Judging Others

Standing in judgement over other people is one of the most simultaneously natural and unnatural things we do in life. It is natural– or perhaps I should say, instinctive– because the desire to judge others goes back to the original sin described in the book of Genesis. It is unnatural all at the same time, [Read More…]

10 Things Donald Trump Might Not Realize About Becoming “Born-Again”

Donald Trump is a born again Christian– or so they say. And by they, I mean Focus on the Family’s Dr. James Dobson, who recently claimed that he had first-hand knowledge that Trump recently accepted Christ and that he was now a “baby Christian” in need of our prayers. Of course, this demonstrates the amazing [Read More…]

Is Christian Universalism Compatible With Free Will? Justice? Hell?

As many know, I have long been a proponent of the view of Annihilationism, which is the view that instead of hell, those who refuse to accept God cease to exist.

The Orlando Massacre & The Ethical Dilemma for Conservative Christians

What happened in Orlando recently is certainly worthy of outrage and action. 49 people killed in cold blood, and many more lying in hospital beds wounded. Between the lives cut short, and the lives that will never be the same, Orlando should be a moment the nation does not soon forget. Certainly tragedies, natural disasters, [Read More…]

Confession: I Think I’m Becoming A Calvinist

It’s no secret- I’ve been a little hard on my Calvinist friends over the years (well, I only have 2 so there’s that). I’ve critiqued some of the crazy things their leaders have said.

Why The Anti-Trafficking Movement Ignores The Voices Of Sex Workers

When I was part-way through doctoral work that included conducting extensive field-based research in the world of human trafficking, I had a small crisis: What I was learning and discovering did not line up with what I believed going into the study. I had a few experiences previously that initially triggered me to reconsider the trafficking [Read More…]

We Do It Better When We Do It Together: What I Learned In The Dominican Republic

I grew up in the United States, which means I grew up in an individualistic culture. Human cultures are oriented on certain frameworks, and one of them is a balance between collectivism (focusing on what’s good for the group) versus individualism (placing a higher value on the individual). This individualistic approach to seeing the world [Read More…]

Franklin Graham Wants Bella Abzug To Speak Up For Women– But There’s Just One Problem

Franklin Graham, in his never-ending quest to define one of the largest religions in the world by minority extremists, is wondering why Bella Abzug is refusing to denounce “Islam’s treatment of women.” Yesterday he posted on Facebook in response to what I agree, is an outrageous proposal in Pakistan to allow wife-beating.
