I’ll admit the title of this blog post can be immediately perceived as inflammatory—but the truth of the matter is that this really is how I came to be a Calvinist. I remember sitting down over a cigar with a dear family friend (who married my wife and I) and we were discussing predestination and election. He is an Arminian and has been for years, so naturally, we butted heads in our understanding of salvation. At the time, I was… Read more

American Christians, who desire to live godly, conservative, biblically oriented lives, need to prepare themselves and their families for persecution. Read more

In many ways I believe the Evangelical movement is coming to it’s inevitable end. The reason I say this should be fairly self-evident, as the old adage proves true that a house divided against itself cannot stand. Though it is still early in the year, it would be the understatement of the year to try and put forth the claim that the Evangelical church isn’t divided in almost every meaningful way. The standard divisions are still in play that have… Read more

Those who are hidden in Christ, who have been washed by the Lamb, will find that the blood that is soaked into that glove, which covers it, is the very blood of Christ. Read more

It has been interesting to gauge the responses of people during months of lockdowns, regulated gatherings, and mask mandates. Ours is a world that thinks little of serious matters like death and eternality. We paint a veneer over these things by assuming a certain level of safety on every given day, as if we are owed the predictable. Each of us steps out of the shower assuming we will live long enough to dry ourselves, don clothes for the day,… Read more

Like many others around the globe, our plans for Thanksgiving have changed a little bit in light of Covid-19. This is, after all, a year fraught with foiled intent. This is not to say that the day itself will change all that much for us as opposed to any other year. However, it is to say that this year will nonetheless be different because our giving of thanks will be enshrined in an act of civil disobedience. We will not… Read more

Luther didn’t seem to be a big fan of the book of Esther. He’s not alone. Many commentators point out that the book never once mentions God. And, though many modern retellings tend to package Esther as a sanitised 20th/21st Century romance, the Biblical book itself it dark, violent, and the plot pivots on sexual exploitation. It was a word from Luther, however, that directed me in my attempt to retell this epic in The Girl and The Guardian. In his… Read more

Each year I’m asked to put together a Christmas list for family members to make gift buying a little easier on everyone. I figured since we’re close to that time again this year, some of the things on that list might help give some of our readers ideas of unique items available they might not otherwise know of. The challenge that is often presented is in finding good, quality items for loved ones without giving away what you plan on… Read more

With the 2020 election wrapping up, it seems clear that Joe Biden will likely be the next president of the United States. Many of my fellow conservative Christian friends find it distressing. I find it distressing. But, as many Christians have already rightly pointed out, Jesus is still king, he is sovereign, and he is good. I want to add some additional thoughts which might be of some encouragement. But first, let’s look at scripture.   John 8.36 “So if… Read more

Election years are always interesting to me for the simple reason that it reveals what much of the world holds in high esteem. Surely, the 2020 presidential election for the United States is no different than the rest in that regard, though it will undoubtedly shape up to be interesting, to say the least. The reason I say this is also relatively simple: it seems that no matter the outcome, the results will be highly contested and make the 2000… Read more
