If you don’t know who Alisa Childers is, then let me enlighten you. Alisa is a fairly popular YouTuber who has built a decently extensive platform as a conservative Christian apologist. To date, she has over 121K subscribers. And I can see why. The audio/video production is quality. The graphics pop. Alisa is articulate and pretty damn smart. And so are many of her guests. So, what’s the problem then? Well, without knowing her personally, I can only speculate; but… Read more

Throughout this entire pandemic, we’ve heard a lot of people saying a lot of things. Some of them have been great. Some of them have been dangerous. Some, idiotic. And some are a combination of the last two. One thing I’ve heard from Christians is the following: “God will protect me.” But will he? Will he really? Of course, I know of no such study that points to a correlation between believing in God and being spared from COVID-19. In… Read more

In an August 31 article for the ever-increasingly irrelevant online group blog, The Gospel Coalition, columnist Laura Baxter answers a reader’s question, “Can I get my hair cut under a rainbow flag?” The reader’s full question to the author is as follows: “The place where I get my haircut has a sign out side that says ‘We don’t serve people who are unmasked, racist, or homophobic.’ They also fly a rainbow flag all year long. I believe in a biblical… Read more

Let me begin by saying this: I don’t think the book of Revelation is about the future. I grew up believing this, but not any longer. I used to look for the antichrist. I used to wonder what the mark of the beast would be. I wondered if I would be raptured before Armageddon or after it. These were childish beliefs and I no longer believe in childish things. That being said, the book of Revelation can be about a… Read more

Today is the California recall election, where we are voting either to keep Gavin Newsome or vote him out. Since the candidate leading the polls if Newsome is recalled is Larry Elder, God help us if Newsome loses. Either way, former POTUS Donald Trump is already calling the election rigged. Since there is no evidence of this, and since facts and truth no longer matter, I’m going to just start saying whatever the hell I want. It’s gonna make my… Read more

A few weeks ago, my friend Keith Giles asked me if I would watch a YouTube video by Sean McDowell and Baylor sociologist George Yancey, so that we could respond to it. Our reaction video can be found here. The topic of McDowell’s interview was about whether conservative Christianity and progressive Christianity are different religions. The conclusion was essentially “yes,” and thus conservatives are the de facto correct faith. During this discussion, one thing, among others, that stood out to… Read more

I love books. I have a lot of them. Most I’ve read, but I’ll be honest, I’m one of those people who buys a used book, knowing full well that I probably won’t get around to it for a while. But of the many I’ve read, I want to touch on 5 of them that impacted me in a big way. I think they’ll impact you as well, if they haven’t yet already.   I. The Inescapable Love of God… Read more

Too many American Christians are approaching this pandemic as if the only thing that matters is their so-called “personal freedoms.” I hate to make too many assumptions about them, but I don’t think they read the same Bible I do. If they did, wouldn’t they stumble across the following swath of verses about putting others first? Wouldn’t they then have to apply this litany of data to their approach to this current COVID crisis? But they’re not. They are still… Read more

This isn’t a “free” country. Nor should it be. Nor do you want it to be. Trust me, I’ve been thinking about a lot of so-called freedoms that I guarantee no rationale person would actually want. But still, plenty of conservative American snowflakes are all whining about how their freedoms are being taken away because they have to place a thin piece of fabric over their faces. You know, because, in spite of the fact that millions of humans have… Read more

I affirm universal reconciliation. Meaning, even if there is a hell, it doesn’t last forever. To put it this way, I believe that when it is all said and done, we will all be reconciled to God and to each other. Naturally, many Christians want to then retort, “Well, then, Jesus is pointless.” But is he? Is he really? I don’t think so. For one, there are many universalists who believe that Jesus is the only way to be reconciled… Read more
