When it comes to fundagelical Christianity, few things make as little sense to outsiders to that culture as its collective near-obsession with all things Judaism. I’m going to start the party off by showing you the bizarre doctrinal belief of supersessionism, which explains why Christians have such a love-hate relationship with Judaism generally. Read more

Lawrence Krauss has all but admitted that he swims in a seriously broken system, revels in it, and has no plans whatsoever to examine himself for flaws or to change anything he’s doing. Here’s how I know that, and why this denial bodes so poorly for a movement that puts its superstars above its principles. Read more

Here’s what a good old-fashioned rowdy Pentecostal revival is like–and why. Today Lord Snow casts his baleful gaze at a dying part of the Christian experience. Read more

Alas for them, this phrase–I’ll pray for you!–fails on a number of fronts. I’m going to decode this salvo for you today, and show you what it says about Christians that they absolutely, positively would never, ever want us to know. Read more

Last week letters turned up in my mail that really encapsulated exactly what Christians do when they are confronted with someone who’s left their ranks–and why even they know they’re doomed as a major power in modern culture. Here are the lessons that Christians never understand they’re giving when they talk like Tim did here. Read more

Mike Huckabee’s latest attempt was a few days ago, when he was appointed to–and then resigned from–the Country Music Award Foundation’s board of directors. The whole affair is such a beautiful microcosm of false persecution that I find myself drawn to it now. Here, today, is what happened and why it’s important as part of Evangelical Churn. Read more

A survey released last year might shed some interesting light on how accurate surveyed responses about atheism are, and give us some new directions in finding out exactly how many atheists exist in America. We might have been counting wrong all along, it seems–and that’s both good and bad news in its way. Read more

I want to show you today how Glenn Hobbs’ claims line up with our checklist for the Cult of Before Stories–and what happens to one of these people after their gravy train jumps the rails for good. We’re going to see a lot more of these people as Christianity continues to decline, and I want us prepared for them. Read more

When a Christian leaves Christianity, they often still suffer from the indoctrinated worldview that made them Christians in the first place. If an ex-Christian doesn’t resolve those lies, then they’re at risk for falling into something just as bad (if not worse!). Here’s an example of what I’m talking about: a Christian who deconverted, then fell into a group devoted to pseudo-archaeology. Read more

Lately I’ve been reminded anew about just how big the overlap is between MLMs and fundagelical-style Christianity. Today I’ll show you some of those similarities–and we’ll see how easy it is for someone to escape one false and harmful group only to land smack-dab in the middle of one that’s just as bad or worse, all because of indoctrination points shared by both groups. Read more
