The 3 Biblical Options for a Theology of Hell

Many of us grow up hearing hell, fire, and brimstone messages in our churches from a very early age. In fact, many of us perhaps became Christians not so much out of a sincere desire to follow Christ, but out a fear of what he’d do to us if we didn’t. Hell is a powerful [Read More…]

Hijacking The Government: What Franklin Graham Is Wrong About Today

In what will be a surprise to no one, Franklin Graham has come out in strong support of Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who is refusing to issue marriage licenses because of her “deeply held beliefs” against same sex marriage. She has fought through every legal avenue, and lost. Now she will likely face contempt of [Read More…]

A Sincere Question For My Friends Who Believe In Hell

Here on the blog and That God Show, we’ve talked quite a bit about the concept of hell and have gone in-depth as to why I believe hell is not a biblical teaching. Yet, even using scripture as the foundation for a hell-free eschatological and theological viewpoint, many Christians are completely unwilling to reconsider their [Read More…]

Don’t Fear The “Homosexual Agenda”, It’s The Ammosexual Agenda That’s Concerning.

I grew up being warned about the “homosexual agenda”, and for many years I believed the hype. It was almost as if LGBTQ individuals were part of the illuminati and secretly controlling world leaders with the goal of establishing a one-world government— one that would force every person on earth to daily pledge allegiance to the rainbow [Read More…]

Flamethrowers: The New & Totally Crazy Addition to the 2nd Amendment Debate

They’re banned from use under international law, but not banned in the United States– unless you happen to live in Maryland. With just 10 pounds of combustion, this new consumer grade weapon spews out fire that’s hot enough to completely melt a human being. Ah, the beauty and destructive power of a flamethrower.

The Type of Christian You’ll Want to Surround Yourself With (And The Type to Avoid)

For those of us on a Christian journey that flows in and out of certain categories and labels, there can be a tendency to surround ourselves simply with other Christians who fit a certain label or definition. This could be a good thing, and could be a bad thing, depending on circumstances at the time. There have [Read More…]

John Piper: Women Not Suited For Most Jobs In The World

Pastor John Piper, a leading figure in Reformed Christianity, was recently asked the question: “Should women be police officers?” He answered the question on his podcast, Ask Pastor John, in Episode 661. His response wasn’t surprising, but what was surprising was how far he took the concept– one that is dangerous, and one I pray [Read More…]

If God Only Made Male & Female, What About Intersex?

I think I’ve heard the phrase “in the beginning God made them male and female” a hundred times in response to the sex/gender discussions of our time. The phrase works like a trump card to win a theological discussion on anything from LGBTQ issues to how Target should organize their toys. However, each time I [Read More…]

What Franklin Graham Is Wrong About Today (vol 1): Gendering Toys

While I prefer to ignore some of the loudest and most obnoxious voices within Americanized Christianity, some are just so loud and so damaging that ignoring is not an option. Like talking to someone with food stuck in their front teeth, sometimes it’s almost impossible to pretend you didn’t see it and thus say nothing. In light [Read More…]
