Why Some Evangelicals Are Embracing Racism
Satan is cunning and able to deceive conservative protestants into embracing Kinism.
Sin is sin, on the right or the left. Kinism is just as evil as critical race theory. So Kinists are not our allies. They’re just as opposed to Biblical views on race as critical race theorists. Just as leftists use America’s history with white supremacy to justify anti-white racism, some “evangelicals” are using... Continue Reading
Pro-Gay Theology, the Film 1946, and the Multiverse
The film 1946 claims the translation team of the 1946 RSV Bible wrongly translated the Greek word arsenokoitai as “homosexuals” in the Bible (specifically, in 1 Cor. 6:9 and 1 Tim. 1:10).
Even if the Pro-Gay Theology Avengers were to succeed in traveling back in time to prevent the word “homosexuals” from entering the Bible, it wouldn’t change the Bible’s teaching on marriage, homosexuality, and sexual ethics. Scripture would still tell us that Jesus’ design for marriage requires a man and a woman for the creation of... Continue Reading
Worship Regulated by Scripture
Our worship aesthetics, must be formed and shaped by the Word of God.
The critical point is to extend biblical authority to every aspect of our worship—elements, content, structure, and aesthetics: If we understand the formative role of corporate worship in making disciples, and if we consequently recognize that such disciple-forming corporate worship must be formed by Scripture, then we must be sure that our liturgies and how...

America’s One-Child Culture
Parents having fewer kids means more societal pathologies.
Although the desire to protect, or overprotect, is in many ways understandable, it can have a devastating impact on a young child’s development—and, quite often, these effects never go away. Being an only child is not a “disease,” but it often comes with a whole host of largely unforeseen risks that most today would rather... Continue Reading
Why Didn’t the New Testament Authors Use God’s Name? Part 3
The use of “Lord” for the divine name probably helped identify Jesus with the God of the Old Testament.
It’s plausible that the New Testament authors upheld the tradition of kurios as a centuries-old tradition that people were accustomed to using to refer to God in a personal way. Since they were trying to communicate clearly to a wide range of listeners, some of whom didn’t speak Hebrew and were already familiar with calling the... Continue Reading
Don’t Conform: Going Along to Get Along Will Only Make Matters Worse
The Gospel is the antidote to the world’s dysfunction.
Conformity and a “go along to get along” mentality are one of the many reasons we find ourselves in this uneven and dysfunctional season of American life. Of course, it’s propelled by fallen man and sin, but if nobody steps up or speaks out, the abnormal begins to be seen as normal. It’s an... Continue Reading
Avoiding a Second Civil War
Culture is downstream from religion so in essence what we are witnessing today is a religious war.
Two competing religions are struggling in a battle against each other for control of our nation’s numerous institutions such as the civil government, the military, education, and even the church. Whatever labels you use for the two sides of the conflict, either wokeism versus traditionalism, or Cultural Marxism versus Christianity, the clash between the two... Continue Reading
Russell Moore Loses His Religion
How did someone who climbed their way to the top of conservative Christianity find themselves on the fringes?
It is important to remember that three months before his departure, a Southern Baptist task force determined that Moore’s organization was “a source of significant distraction from the Great Commission work of Southern Baptists.” The report cited things like participating in the partially Soros-funded Evangelical Immigration Table, filing an amicus brief to support a mosque,...

Canada’s Suicidal Slide
What David Brooks Gets Right…and Wrong
The value of human life is not based on any extrinsic quality. Period. It’s instead based on the fact that humans are made in God’s image. We belong to Him, not to ourselves. This is ultimately why the slope from accepting some suicides to all suicides is so slippery. If it is true, as Richard Weaver famously put it,... Continue Reading
Love Keeps No Record of Rights
Love rejects all basis of comparison to simply love according to the second great commandment: “love your neighbor as yourself.”
The Christian is to keep no record of wrongs. Yet I find it every bit as important to keep no record of rights—of the right and good things we have done to others. And that’s because the accounting we are always tempted to keep is not merely of other people’s bad deeds but our own... Continue Reading
