On an episode of the sci-fi television series The Orville, the members of the crew land on a planet which looks similar to twenty-first century earth. Throughout the episode, they discover a rather odd judicial system. Individuals each have up-vote and down-vote buttons on them which are given dependent upon their actions. With enough down votes, a person is then given an opportunity to ride the media circuit in order to explain and defend themselves and their bad actions. After… Read more

On this program, I continued my discussion on contemporary views of gender. I spent the majority of the program discussing Marxism as well as some basics of Postmodernism. I also gave a brief overview of the impact of existential philosophy on feminist philosophy. This is all done so that we have a better understanding of where the modern world is and how we can give a Biblical response. Here is the program. Read more

On a recent Q&A program, I was told by a listener that all of the fathers of the church held to a chiliast view of the end times. This is a response to that question, wherein I note that there are several different eschatological views in the early church. Here is the video. Read more

Post by Nathan Rinne (This will be my last post here for several months. Taking a break for a while.) +++   In my last post, I spoke about Christian marriage as the real “antidote to chaos”. It is now time to talk about fatherhood as a corollary “antidote” to chaos (and men in general should take note as well). Are men increasingly irrelevant? Men are only irrelevant if you don’t think we need God. The most memorable post that… Read more

The contemporary world, and the church in particular, has been challenged by ever-shifting views on the nature of gender, leading to the modern notion that gender is not essential, but a social construct. In this first of a series of videos, I address the beginnings of this ideological shift with an explanation of Simone de Beauvoir’s book The Second Sex. Read more

+++ Post by Nathan Rinne Did the 16th century church reformer Martin Luther believe that there was a “War of the Sexes”? One can certainly make that case. He writes: There are many pagan books which treat of nothing but the depravity of womankind and the unhappiness of the estate of marriage, such that some have thought that even if Wisdom itself were a woman one should not marry. A Roman official was once supposed to encourage young men to… Read more
