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 other day I was honest about the fact that I am rethinking my position in favor of Universal Redemption, which is essentially Christian [Read More…]

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. I’ve pointed out why some of their core beliefs are utterly offensive to me. What can I say? Calvin and I [Read More…]

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.

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.

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. The proposal was submitted [Read More…]

Was Jesus A Pacifist?

I hear the claim, “Jesus wasn’t a pacifist!” a lot. But is it true? Was Jesus a pacifist, or not? What we know about Jesus comes to us from the four New Testament Gospel accounts, so that is where we must look for our answer—especially to those of us who would affirm the inspiration and [Read More…]

Christian Rocker Comes Out: An Interview with Everyday Sunday’s Trey Pearson

About 10 years ago, I met Trey Pearson at a concert where his band, Everyday Sunday, was touring with Skillet. All these years later, Trey has now sold hundreds of thousands of albums, had multiple number one singles, and toured all around the world as part of the Christian music scene. And today, Trey publicly came [Read More…]

5 Reasons Why More Christians Are Becoming LGBTQ Affirming

If one follows the news they’d see that many major Christian denominations are split over LGBTQ inclusion. As I have followed these developments, one observation that has stood out in my mind is that the division over LGBTQ inclusion is a recent development, historically speaking. This means one thing: the movement to include and affirm our [Read More…]

Is Pornography What’s Fueling Human Trafficking?

In the world of trafficking, porn is just a low hanging fruit that becomes an easy scapegoat for the bigger issue at play—and is an easy scapegoat at that, because most people will never question whether or not it’s true. [Read more…]
