“I guarantee you that at some point everything is going to go south on you… and you’re going to say, ‘This is it, this is how I end.’ Now you can either accept that or, you can get to work.” It’s a tough and unprecedented day and age. It just is, but it doesn’t have to stay the way it is. Regardless of your situation being systemic, work-related, marital, relational, familial or all of the above… Genuinely, where there’s a... Read more

Apparently, Trump is Channeling his inner Andrew Yang as ABC News reports that Trump is pushing for a $1.2 TRILLION stimulus. As he’s urging Congress to infuse this money directly back into our economy by giving what analysts are estimating to be $1,000 for every adult US Citizen. This is just after the Federal Reserve Board announced that they’ll be implementing an emergency rate cut, lowering interest rates to nearly zero (in other words, as MSNBC reports, “The 1% decrease in... Read more

A Short Cut to Reconciling One’s Cognitive Dissonance Between the Church and Their Faith A couple of months ago, I went to a friends Church service… Now, it’d been, God knows how long, since the last service I’d been to. While there, I barely listened to the sermon being given and just thought about all of what lead up to my conscious choice to stop going to Sunday morning services… But, as many of us know, the Church for many... Read more

31 They have built the high places of Topheth in the Valley of Ben Hinnom to burn their sons and daughters in the fire—something I did not command, nor did it enter my mind. – Jeremiah 7:31 How Understanding the Etymology of the Word “Hell” Changes Everything…  The other day someone tweeted this at me: “When we believe hell is a real place, we warn everyone.” In their defense, the context of this particular tweet made it feel as if they were defending my frustration... Read more

Is White Supremacy Hiding Behind the Guise of “Diversity”? I mean probably but also, here’s why it shouldn’t really matter… How many people in 2019 drive past a church sign that says “All are welcome!” and think, “That’s definitely true!” Not too many. Feels like, at this point, the sign [below] would attract more people… Yet, most of these signs are becoming fewer and farther apart in count. This probably has to do with the numerous churches (8,000 to 10,000,... Read more

This post isn’t about Joel Osteen. This post is about the pastors who preach this false form of the Gospel. “When I was a kid I could tell the difference between neighborhood kids who wanted to be my friend from the neighborhood kids who were my friends so that they could play with my toys.  Joel and Joyce are the latter.” – Rick Henderson The other day, I went to church with a friend and, nearing the end of the... Read more

“Almost Half of Practicing Christian Millennials Say Evangelism Is Wrong” This research comes across as a bizarre manipulative ploy in, once again, shaming us as millennials to get back on board of their institutions already sinking ships… According to Barna: “…Many Millennials are unsure about the actual practice of evangelism. Almost half of Millennials (47%) agree at least somewhat that it is wrong to share one’s personal beliefs with someone of a different faith in hopes that they will one... Read more

 The Emerging “eXvangelical” Church If you’re a Christian and have been on Twitter within the last two years then you’ve most likely heard of them. The “eXvangelicals.” Like it or not… they’re a thing. For the past several years (if not longer) there’s been a highly publicized steady decrease in church attendance. Barna Group has labeled this as a “mass exodus” of sorts. In fact, It’s estimated that 8,000-10,000 churches will close their doors this year, in the US alone.... Read more

  Things More Likely to Kill You Than an Immigrant A friend of mine said something very interesting the other day… He mentioned that he’d never been more hesitant to tell people in his life that he wasn’t born here in America. And, ‘mind you, he’s white, of Romanian descent, and has legally obtained American citizenship. It’s just that, times have changed. America that was founded upon immigration has somehow managed to so far stigmatize it that first or second... Read more

My Top Ten Posts of 2018 Maybe it’s just me but, it feels like as soon as 2016 hit everything went south. Honestly, it’s not just the incomprehensible reality of Trump winning the presidency but, it’s been the Internet and all of the revelations of life that have come alongside all it’s brought with it. As we’re not just forced outside of our silos we’re seemingly crumbling from exhaustion all the while failing to adapt to a seemingly indiscriminate and ever-changing... Read more
