Blood Moon Abomination: Why Christians Shouldn’t Buy What Hagee is Selling

Mega-church pastor and New York Times best selling author John Hagee has been busy selling something that I’d invite all Christians to avoid like it’s going out of style.

Hands Down The Worst Bible Version Ever

Someone asked me the other day which version of the Bible I thought was the best. While I don’t have an English favorite (English can be limiting and there’s a lot of judgement calls that go into translation), I do have a new version of the Bible that I’d be happy to call the worse version [Read More…]

10 Situations Where Christian Bakers Should Refuse To Bake Wedding Cakes

This past week has been a major victory folks. With Indiana passing a law that gives us the right to refuse to sell our cakes to gay people, there are now close to 20 states where we can look our gay citizens in the eyes and say, “no cake for you!” While I was celebrating [Read More…]

Israel vs. Palestine: A Very Short Introduction to the Problem

Last week I posted on this Israeli/Palestinian conflict and the plight of Palestinian Christians who are persecuted at the hands of the Israelis. There’s been a lot of good discussion (and some not so good) on both that and an old post I’ve written on pro-Israel theology and why it’s biblically flawed. While the conflict [Read More…]

World Vision Child Sponsorships Abandoned: It’s Almost Double What We Thought

This week marked the 1 year anniversary of an event I’ve been calling the World Vision Fiasco. I have been lamenting the events which took place last spring, and the damaging fallout that has flowed as a result. As a quick recap for those who didn’t follow the events last year: World Vision is a Christian [Read More…]

If Jesus Gave A Speech At Liberty University (Here Are Some Things I Think He’d Say)

Yesterday, Sen. Ted Cruz became the first candidate to announce they’re running for president in the 2016 election cycle, during a speech he gave at Liberty University. Liberty students were required to attend or face a fine, so Cruz had a pretty decent crowd to help try to insert some perceived energy into his political campaign. [Read More…]

The Gun Shop Everyone Needs To Visit (Guns With History)

If you haven’t seen this yet, please take three minutes and check it out. Regardless of what garbage the NRA feeds you (in an effort to scare you so that you’ll buy more guns, so their friends in the gun lobby will make more money) guns don’t make you safer. In fact, the presence of [Read More…]

When Theology Is So Pro-Israel That It Becomes Anti-Christian

Christian culture sure does love talking about persecution, but there is one group of persecuted Christians that Evangelicalism doesn’t want you to know about: the persecuted Christians of Palestine. Dispensational theology that leads to the errant and blindly pro-Israel position (here’s why that’s unbiblical) has sadly led most of Evangelicalism to become so pro-Israel that [Read More…]

5 Reasons Why Reading Charisma News Might Be Toxic For Your Faith

  I’m sure you’ve probably seen a Charisma News article flow through your Facebook or Twitter feed. Perhaps you’ve clicked the link a few times, or even worse, maybe you’ve occasionally strolled into the comment section. If you have, you probably already know what I’m about to tell you, but I think it bears repeating [Read More…]

The Critical Part Of Orphan Care That Adoption Culture Totally Missed

For the past twenty years or so, adoption has grown to become a staple of much of Christian culture in America. So much so, that one could actually argue that adoption has become trendy within Evangelical circles. As I’ve said before, if something were to become trendy, I’m glad that helping kids in need is one [Read More…]
