In my last article, I offered some explanation as to why so many American Evangelicals don’t understand the theology and practice of infant baptism. I argued that, due to a preconditioned hermeneutic to read the Bible with a dispensational paradigm, many miss the cultural and scriptural substrata (Covenant Theology) for pedobaptism. If you have not read that article, I encourage you to do so; this article is the second in the series and builds on that important premise. As we… Read more

My aim is not to provide exhaustive histories, compressive scriptural explanations, and detailed summaries for both sides of the debate. For as I’ve hinted, this topic has been written and discussed for centuries. There are volumes of relative content available (much better than mine) if the reader wishes to expand beyond my simple treatise. Rather, my intention is to provide a straightforward introduction to the practice and theology of pedobaptism, answer why its often overlooked by modern evangelicals, and defend it from scripture. My experience is that many Evangelicals do not rightly understand the theology behind infant baptism. I hear all too often that such practices are only lingering remnants of Roman Catholicism and “popery”. I can assure you that this is not the case. The practice of pedobaptism within Protestantism is not a result of a failure to finish the Reformation. If I accomplish nothing else than to put that nonsense to rest, I will have done well. Read more

Chick-fil-A has recently borne the scorn of many conservative Evangelicals due to an interview between an organization known as Bisnow and Chick-fil-A COO Tim Tassopoulos (which the reader would do well to read). While some have dubbed the entire thing to be “fake news” – it is important to note that Bisnow is an established, reputable source for commercial real estate news. Equally as important to note is that Chick-fil-A has not denounced the article in question linked above. Perhaps… Read more

The light flickers on in the pastor’s office. He sets His belongings on his desk and slowly works his way through the church building, unlocking doors and turning on lights. “I’ve got to get some of the good stuff next time,” he tells himself as he fills the carafe with freshly brewed coffee from a can. After all the Sunday School rooms are inspected, he enters the sanctuary. The early morning sun pushes through the textured, stained-glass window, illuminating the… Read more

Clocking in at 27 minutes, Jesus Is King puts on display Kanye’s newly found passion for God. This is a radical change for someone who, just a few years ago on one of his records, claimed to be a god. Not only is his love for the real God made clear on this album, but also is his desire to reach the lost. Read more

I’ll be honest: I think the only time in my life I’ve listened to Kanye West was before I was a Christian. I never really got into it then just because my music preferences were different, but I heard it through friends who loved his music. I’ve known Christians who listen to Kanye’s old music and I have no clue how someone can get past the cognitive dissonance of what I’d just say is not fit for consumption in any… Read more

Hi, my name is Jack and I am a confessional, Calvinistic, Post-Millennial, Presbyterian. Which, if you have your Christian denominational decoder-ring on, means you already may think I’m a stick-in-the-mud when it comes to having a good time. Many associate Reformed theology with stuffed-shirt, nerds who forgot how to relate with normal people a long time ago. Ok, this is fair. While I don’t think (hope) I’m too much of a buzzkill, I’ve met my fair share of them and… Read more

The fact that John MacArthur’s comments against Beth Moore blew up the Internet, in one sense, kind of caught me off guard because I really found it to be relatively mild for MacArthur. In another, I can understand why some might not like how he approached it, the uproarious laughter from many among the crowd, and how Beth Moore was mocked in the process. However, I earnestly believe more people are needlessly offended in what I would dub the “perpetual… Read more

Holed up under the umbrella of religious freedom for several hundred years, I fear the church in America is largely unprepared for the lurking persecution that awaits her in the coming generation. The separation of church and state canopy that has protected her is growing distressingly thin. Read more

Earlier this week, democratic presidential hopeful, Beto O’Rourke, affirmed his stance on the church and homosexuality. During a CNN LGBTQ+ townhall meeting, O’Rourke stated that he would strip away the tax-exempt status of any religious institution (churches, colleges, or charities etc.) that stands in opposition to same-sex marriage. Read more
