Voice in the Wind: An Interlude

Enoch surely now knows that Hadassah is a Christian. But it is unlikely that Decimus would have made such a connection. There were a multitude of sects in Rome during this period, each with their different gods and practices. Your average Roman likely wouldn’t be familiar with Christianity. And while Peter was likely killed in Rome, it is unlikely that he would have stood out or made an impression on a man like Decimus. Click through to read more! Read more

TTUAC: Romanticizing Poverty

Raising children who are balanced and centered and have a healthy approach to money and material possessions in the midst of affluence will always be a challenge. However, romanticizing poverty and preaching artificial deprivation, as Pearl does here, is not the answer. Click through to read more! Read more

Doug Wilson: The National Anthem Is Required by God, but the Pledge is Socialist

To the surprise of no one, controversial pastor Doug Wilson has written a long, rambling blog post condemning the actions of Colin Kaepernick and other athletes who have taken the knee to protest racially discriminatory policing. Wilson may be an influential conservative evangelical author and minister, but he is also a troll, and I wasn’t going to bother responding—until a paragraph toward the end changed my mind, that is.

Progressive Piety and Conservative Politics: On Kaepernick, Tebow, and American Christianity

I’m tired of this sort of “both sides are missing something” approach to conservative and progressive religious believers. The idea tends to fall apart upon further explanation. Furthermore, this claim tends to minimize both the harm done by conservative political activism and the extent of progressive theological depth and devotion. Click through to read more! Read more

That Screenshot from Snow White Is Not Helping Your Case, Title IX Critics

There has been a lot of talk lately about whether Title IX complaints on college campuses are a violation of due process, whether they are kangaroo courts, whether we are taking the definition of sexual assault too far, etc. But what concerns me when I read these objections is that they almost always mistake the facts of a case, downplay key details, or state highly concerning items as though they were no big deal.

Voice in the Wind: Handsy Marcus Is Handsy

What makes Hadassah different? She goes above and beyond, and doesn’t just do what she is told to, as a slave, because she has to. But there is no reason a slave like that would be noticed. Valued, perhaps, but not like this. She’s quiet—that wouldn’t get her noticed either. She’s unassuming and doesn’t think of her own needs—but again, that wouldn’t get her noticed.

John Piper on Forgiveness

There’s nothing here about making amends. Nothing. Piper says you should confess your sin to the person you wronged because “it is very healing for relationships,” but that’s it. You don’t need that person’s forgiveness. You don’t need to make anything right. All you need is God’s forgiveness. Sin is primarily a wrong done to God, not to other people. There is nothing that could go wrong with this line of thought, nothing at all. Click through to read more! Read more
