Abide Project Seeks to Uphold “Historic, Beautiful, Biblical Understanding of Human Sexuality’”
Pastors and church leaders in the group were alarmed by the decision of Neland Avenue CRC to ordain a deacon who was in a same-sex marriage.
“The goal for the Abide Project is to see the HSR passed,” said Steenwyk, emphasizing that this is not a political goal, but a prayer for the movement of the Holy Spirit. “I do believe that matters of sexuality have confessional status, like many other issues of holiness and discipleship. Where we need more guidance... Continue Reading
Grief, Confession, and Prayer for Peace
We differ over the theology of Revoice and Side B homosexuality. And, as is clear right now, we differ over the needfulness of Overtures 23 and 37.
By God’s grace, I continue to examine my heart and repent as best I know how of the sin I find present there, I hope my brothers in the National Partnership and those rushing to their defense will carefully consider why so many men and women in the PCA are vexed over what was revealed...

America’s Purported “Original Sin” Taints American Race Relations
Slavery is humankind’s sin.
Slavery was never black and white, involving only Whites enslaving Blacks. It was multiracial just as most evils existent today are multiracial. It’s time to correct America’s history. It’s also time to cease promoting racial division based on the falsehood of America’s “original sin” and its selective omission of facts about all the oppressors and practitioners. If we...

Kids Are Given to Parents, Not the State
Any authority we have over our children is God-given, and must ultimately and eventually be surrendered to God.
When a culture loses its grip on those foundations, the “experts” (or, as C.S. Lewis called them “conditioners”) step in. They loudly suggest that a college degree in education and a place on the government’s payroll gives someone the vocational and moral authority over kids. Don’t buy it. That authority belongs to God, Who assigns it to... Continue Reading
Texas Passes Amendment to State Constitution Barring Future Church Closings
Proposition 3 mandates that state or local governments cannot close a religious entity for any reason.
Proposition 3 stipulates that the state or any political subdivision cannot intervene in religious services and organizations or issue orders that would close a church or house of worship. It also enshrines the Texas Freedom to Worship Act, signed earlier this year, as part of the Texas constitution. AUSTIN, Texas (LifeSiteNews)—Texas voters passed an amendment to the state constitution on Tuesday that... Continue Reading
Tales From the Gulag
A pervasive and divisive atmosphere continues to develop in educational and scientific institutions as a result of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion bureaucratic tyranny.
Only by speaking out…can we try and dismantle the current strangle-hold that DEI [Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion] bureaucracies have on researchers and students alike and restore academic freedom and excellence as the hallmarks of science and education. A couple of weeks ago I published an article in the Wall Street Journal describing the tyranny that... Continue Reading
Are We Bowing to America’s Golden Image?
Nations have the potential to attempt to unify their people under a new form of religious devotion, one that attempts to assert itself against the Lord and against his anointed.
Covid-19 has exposed that we live in a paper palace and that our economic strength hangs by a thread. Leaders are feeling the pressure and nothing is going well. Like Nebuchadnezzar, our government is in search of a unifying power to unite the people under an image. If the story of Daniel offers us any... Continue Reading
Watch Out for Millstones
One of the great signs of degradation in our present culture is the attack progressivism has made and is making on our children.
The problem gets worse. Critical Race Theory (CRT) is a form of political Oneism, because it denies individual distinction. The concept of individual rights is a political form of Twoism, that is, it affirms that every individual, made in the image of God with rights from the Creator, is different and distinct and deserves the...

The Debatable “My Body, My Choice”
It's a body — another person's body. It's not really her body.
Therein lies the crux of whose body and whose choice. Abortion doesn’t dismember the woman’s body or crush her skull open to suck her brains out. Those practices are aimed at another vulnerable human being: the baby carried in her womb. That person’s heart is beating, his arms and legs moving, and perhaps his thumb is in his mouth. He...

The Kids Most Definitely Are Not All Right
The latest NAEP scores indicate a very troubled education system, and eliminating standardized tests certainly won’t solve the problem.
The dismal results of the prior NAEP, administered in 2019, clarify why the unions’ are so antagonistic to standardized testing. As reported by the Wall Street Journal, “Of the 27 U.S. urban school districts that reported their results for 2019—from Boston and Chicago to Fort Worth, Texas, and Los Angeles—not a single one can say a...
