Taking a stand against the machinations of our global elites.
At its heart, the Great Reset is a conceited and self-loathing central-European blitzkrieg against the cultural, intellectual, religious, artistic, physical, and, most of all, moral inheritance we have received from our Greco-Roman forebears. Part I: The Problem What is the Great Reset and why should we care? In the midst of a tumultuous medical-societal... Continue Reading
Tribalism’s Big Lie
Most of us learned long ago to value human cooperation; we recognize that harming others doesn’t foster either our own well-being or the well-being of others.
One of the most damaging illiberal beliefs is the belief in the supremacy of the tribe. From that meta-belief, other illiberal beliefs flow. Mistakenly believing others are less worthy, it becomes easy to fail to see the humanity in others. From that mistake, it is easy to adopt a zero-sum mindset and believe all that... Continue Reading
60 Questions for Pro-Choice Christians
It seems that we have little to no tolerance when it comes to embracing tough conversations.
You may have considered all of these questions before. You may not have ever considered any of these questions before, but they are certainly worth considering before condemning the position the church of Jesus Christ has held for a couple millennia. For many evangelicals, the leaked draft decision last month felt like the culmination... Continue Reading
Exploring Overture 15 from the PCA General Assembly
Considering Overture 15 in light of the Westminster Standards, the PCA’s own AIC Report of Human Sexuality, and Overture 29 itself.
This issue has caused disunity, confusion, and chaos in the PCA for far too long. If we desire that this particular sword should depart our house, then we will acknowledge that Overture 29 needs Overture 15 to be effective and pass both through our presbyteries. The two overtures go hand-in-hand. The one works through the... Continue Reading
A Plea to Missouri Presbytery From A Fellow Presbyter
A plea to work together to restore peace and unity in the PCA
I trust that you are men driven by Christian character who will not countenance watching a sound church of Jesus Christ – your church – be torn asunder, especially by a small minority. If this is true, then give no support, encouragement or succor to any man who would refuse now to submit wholeheartedly to... Continue Reading
A Response to the Notion of ‘Reformed Catholicity’
A response from someone who was brought to faith in Christ from deep within Roman Catholicism, who didn’t even know what a Protestant was at the time.
It would be much more accurate to say, as Calvin does in the Institutes, that arising from under the all-seeing eye of the office of Pope, there had been voices who slowly began to catch visions of the arising theology that would blossom into the Reformation. These voices were not arising because of Romanism, but... Continue Reading
What To Do About Greg Johnson?
Over the past 4 years, Greg Johnson and his allies have attacked disagreeing brothers in the PCA and the greater Church of Christ with accusations of homophobia and hard-heartedness.
As an ordained PCA minister, his participation in Revoice and his determination to embrace a gay lifestyle and culture has given comfort and aid to one of the great modern movements attacking the church and orthodoxy. Furthermore, he has continued to write, speak, and make money off his self-ascribed role as a gay martyr trying... Continue Reading
A Response to Terry Johnson’s Review of SJC Case 2021-13, Dudt vs Northwest Georgia Presbytery
This response supports the action that the SJC ruled correctly in the case.
The SJC was considering two questions in this case. The first was whether the session at Midway erred in convicting Phil Dudt of the charges brought against him, and the second was whether the Northwest Georgia Presbytery erred in upholding that conviction. The SJC answered yes to both questions, and that ruling is the subject... Continue Reading
A Victory for Religious Liberty and Educational Pluralism
The Supreme Court rejects policies that exclude faith-based schools from private-school-choice programs.
Policies that exclude faith-based schools from private-school-choice programs are not just unconstitutional; they are unwise. Carson v. Makin is a victory not just for religious liberty but for educational pluralism. And the decision comes at a time when we need educational pluralism more than ever. A quarter-century ago, as a young attorney, I participated in the first... Continue Reading
Dobbs Isn’t the End. It’s the Beginning of a Ballot Measure Battle to Save Preborn Lives in Every State
The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the infamous ruling from 1973 will give states the authority to create their own protections for life inside the womb.
Dobbs is not the end-all solution because there’s still plenty of pro-life work left to be done in states, especially those like Vermont where leftists are dreaming up new ways to hurt children. Conservatives and pro-lifers need to act now while the wind from possibly the largest Supreme Court decision in history is behind their... Continue Reading
