Wokism and Silent Preachers – A Redux of Hitler’s Germany
Wokism is the application of a new religion which can be called Neo-Marxism, which is a religion.
Wokism has become a giant bulldozer seeking to crush everything in its path. It has captured the civil government, educational institutions, the military, corporations, banks, media, and even has made major inroads into the church. It comes like a cancer (posing as a medicinal cure) eating away everything that sustains life and peace. In some... Continue Reading
The Scandal of “The Scandal of the Evangelical Mind”
Noll’s famous line, “The scandal of the evangelical mind seems to be that no mind arises from evangelicism” has revealed itself, nearly three decades later, to be devoid of meaning.
What must not be forgotten, however, is the use to which this book has been put toward for the last few decades. Those who used this text to promote a syncretism of Christianity with secular ideological agendas have done untold damage to the cause of the Christian faith and are directly responsible for the divisions...

When Mental Illness Goes Viral: Social Contagions Are Destroying Our Girls
We are profoundly shaped by the behaviors, beliefs, and expectations of others.
Millions of girls with instant access to our culture’s most viral (and dangerous) behaviors and beliefs are currently manifesting the results. Their sicknesses are a clear sign that our society is sick. In order to treat them and us, we’ll have to admit how the disease spreads, admit the connection between mental illness and gender confusion, and... Continue Reading
Two Narratives Collided In A Wood
Why were Elizabeth Elliot and the Promise Keepers so helpful to so many people through the Sexual Revolution?
Was it really because Christians are misogynists? Was it really because men don’t care about the happiness and health of their wives? Was it really because Evangelicals hated black people? Or is it because they—like the rest of the world—are staring into a genderless, plastic abyss wherein women and men are not who God says... Continue Reading
Natural Law: An Introduction
A moral theory explains what we should do, why people believe what they do, and why we should be moral.
The ethical teachings of the Christian faith are the basis for morality in the West. Of this there can be little doubt. In which other civilization was there a war to end slavery, rather than the far more typical wars to enslave another people? Where else have women been emancipated in any way close to...

A Wholesome Controversy? Please
The practice of the Church Year is hostile to our doctrine of Scripture, our doctrine of worship, our doctrine of Church power and our doctrine of Christian liberty.
Will the Presbyterian Church in America allow the teaching and practice of the Church Year to be promulgated in its bounds? I believe that my essay dismantles the recently offered exegetical argument. I believe that my essay removes the plausibility of the recently offered ‘Confessional’ opinion. I believe that my essay identifies the corrupting influence... Continue Reading
Are We Losing Our Children to Make-Believe?
If we allow children to be constantly exposed to academic malpractice, fantasy narratives, virtual-reality gaming and cosplay cultism, then we should not be surprised when they prefer to live their life predominately outside of reality and God’s truth.
Clearly there is a genuine spiritual risk for the younger generation growing up in this current crusade of make-believe and skepticism towards transcendent morality. It’s one thing for adults to deal with these assaults upon truth, but young children are not intellectually and emotionally developed enough to make a clear distinction between what is real...

Revival at Asbury: A Cold Take
A revival does not need to sweep over the globe or impact millions to be genuine.
It seems to me that news of an outbreak of revival is best met with a guarded optimism. We don’t need to be naive but also don’t need to be incredulous. And if that revival begins in a tradition very different from our own (though of course one that acknowledges the gospel) we should perhaps... Continue Reading
Tucker Carlson Calls Out the ‘Professional Christians’
Where are all the other breast-beating Christians as the U.S. government cracks down on Christianity, on prayer? Silent.
Tragically, Moore, French, Moore, and Keller are far from alone. As I’ve noted multiple times in the past several years, whether “professional Christians,” “Christian celebrities,” pastors and priests, Tucker Carlson, or everyday Christians, for far too long, far too many Christians have sat on the sidelines when it comes to the grave moral issues that...

The Rise of Totalitarian Science
Because of the pandemic’s deeply personal costs, it can be painful to engage in a candid discussion of the changes COVID-19 policies have wrought on our society.
COVID has shown government officials how to do an end-run around the normal system of checks and balances. They simply need to invoke “science” and declare an emergency — and then extend their emergency orders time and again. Anyone who dares challenge the emergency orders will be stigmatized as “anti-science,” or they will be told... Continue Reading
