The apoplectic rage of those who wish to protect their “right” to terminate the life of the innocent is nothing short of astounding. I say this, not because the outrage isn’t to be expected, but simply that if there were any lingering doubt on what the Democratic platform, and leftism in general, holds dear, there is no longer an air of mystery. With the leak of the SCOTUS draft on ending Roe v. Wade, we get a window into the... Read more

If you’ve been a Christian for any length of time, you have likely run into various arguments people make that seek to draw out the inconsistency of the conservative position on things like traditional marriage, gender ideologies, and even abortion. For today’s post, I want to simply key in on one of the aforementioned issues: abortion. The argument, as many non-Christians (and even some professing Christians) purport, is that God is largely indifferent to abortion at best, and actually supports... Read more

When it comes to Christianity, few theological subjects are more controversial and polarizing than Calvinism. Since the time of the Reformation, Christians, historians, and theologians all over the world have fiercely debated these doctrines. Subsequently, this has created all kinds of claims about what Calvinism teaches (some accurate and some not). Having been a Calvinist for almost 20 years, I have experienced this firsthand; I have heard it all. From robot analogies to man-worship, to even gross misunderstandings about God's love and justice. In turn, I thought it would be useful to directly address some of the common misconceptions about the Doctrines of Grace. Read more

Tim Keller is no stranger to saying some rather enigmatic things on social media. Over the past few years especially, he has made some rather grand-sweeping statements that might betray a level of rhetorical flair for some, but leave the careful reader puzzled. Some of this is simply due to the fact that what sounds fairly intelligible at first blush is, at times, rather senseless (e.g., “It’s true that we must bring the gospel to the city. But we should... Read more

Over the years, we have published several posts dealing with the importance of the local church. They’ve generated their fair share of controversy, despite the fact that what I and others have argued is nothing groundbreaking within the Christian faith. When we boil things down in the modern era of church and church attendance, there is a remarkably noticeable difference in our practices and that of the church for millennia. Rather than simply meet once a week to hear the... Read more

I have little clue who Dave Rubin is, save a recent Twitter foray where I discovered several “conservative” publications who affirmed him and his homosexual partner in their recent adoption of two babies. There is much I could say on the sin of homosexuality and how this is fundamentally at odds with the biblical ethos, but I’ve already said much of that in previous writings. With that being said, this post will be a short one with some simple, general... Read more

For many believers, distinguishing between one’s feelings and the guidance of the Holy Spirit can be very challenging. It is easy to mistake a deep emotional state as something influenced or guided by the Holy Spirit. Oftentimes, this even happens to very well-intentioned Christians. We can long so badly to be “in God’s will” that in a desperate search for some supernatural guidance, we fall victim to letting our emotions take the lead. I recall a friend in college who... Read more

A number of years ago, I wrote a blog post asking Andy Stanley to step down from ministry. The reason for this was fairly straightforward, in that while he would not deny the virgin birth, he made statements suggesting that the Christian faith doesn’t hinge off of the account of the virgin birth. This is false. Later on, Andy Stanley also made comments that earned him the spurn of many Evangelicals, suggesting that it was time to unhitch from the... Read more

For many, the King James Bible is an antiquated and archaic translation of the Bible they are quick to dismiss. On the opposite end of the spectrum, you find some who insist that the King James Bible is the only adequate translation of Scripture (contrary to the preface of the 1611 version). I don’t quite find myself landing in either camp, and my reasons for this are largely anecdotal. I’ll get to that in a moment. I’ll admit at the... Read more

Russia has invaded Ukraine. Who all gets involved and how all of this will play out in the end remains to be seen, but one thing is sure: the world is watching. That hasn’t stopped many from speculating if this will bring about another World War, if China and Russia will collude, and if, God forbid, nuclear weaponry will be employed if others intervene, or even if the parties involved currently will use nuclear weapons. It’s understandable, in one sense,... Read more
