A reader recently asked how we- the people of Jesus- ought to approach the celebration of America’s independence on the 4th of July.

Moments ago the US Supreme Court announced that marriage equality is now the law of the land.

The Execution of Michael Servetus & My Primary Deal-Breaker with Calvinism

Burning Wizards 16th

When I’ve written about Calvinism I’ve not infrequently heard “that’s just a caricature of Calvinism,” or that I don’t understand what Calvinism actually teaches (neither of which are true).  While it’s true some of my critiques may not apply to some modern American Calvinists (who in all honesty, probably shouldn’t call themselves Calvinists), when I talk [Read More...]

This isn’t a post about theology, Christian culture, or any of the other things I typically write about. Yes, this is a post about the 1%, but not that 1%. This is a post about breast cancer and the fact that 1% of new cases each year occur in men. In a world where all things breast [Read More...]

Yesterday the internet exploded as Caitlyn Jenner was introduced to the world. While so much of what I saw online was a kind and loving reception for her, much of it was not. From the Christian community, there didn’t seem to be any shortage of condemnation, calls for her to repent, and a tendency to [Read More...]
