Racism Is Not Your Biggest Problem

Your excellence, then, is worth nothing. Nothing at all. Your shriving yourself of your racial sins, if you do it to establish your own goodness, only makes you more guilty, for you are still defying and rejecting the God who made you, and who, before you do anything else, wants you to let go of yourself as god and accept him as Lord.

When “Pro-Life” Isn’t Pro-Life

New Wave Feminists say, “We subscribe to something called the ‘Consistent Life Ethic.'” But it is not consistent at all, at least not in their hands. Nor is it pro-life.

The Stupidest Thing You’ll Read All Week

George Orwell famously said, “There are some ideas so absurd that only an intellectual could believe them.” A British academic seeks to prove him right.

The Corrosive Power of Critical Theory

Critical Theory is corrosive to the Christian sense of virtue and justice. The dehumanization and objectification of women alongside the glorification of untethered eroticism during the halftime show, so obvious to those with a biblically shaped worldview, were invisible to those Christians who embrace its counterfeit.

Marx Must Increase, Christ Must Decrease

Collectivizing property can witness to the Kingdom of God, in which all is provided for all to enjoy. That’s not what Marxists want.

Why God Does Answer Some Prayers

Why God Does Answer Some Prayers

But his help is meddlesome. He does not give you the kind of help you think you might like to have. For example, though you ask for help with your present circumstances, he may not always lift or alleviate them. If you are starving because you have no food, and you pray, you are right, you may still die. If someone is threatening to kill you, and you pray and ask for the threat to go away, you are right, you may still be killed. If you are depressed and you pray and ask for God to make you feel better, you are right, he may leave you to go on in your sadness.

Chronicling the Long Defeat

I wrote the article below in 2016, hoping to dissuade orthodox Anglican primates from attending a Primates Meeting that had been called by the Archbishop of Canterbury. My aim was to show that much damage to the orthodox cause is done by meeting with those who claim...

How To Actually Support The Parents of Theybies

Recognizing Critical Theory

How many books by people of color do you have on your shelves? How about women? When you reach for a commentary do you inevitably grab one written by a white male? What about the Bible you read, were the translators mostly white and male? My guess is that you have...

The Baby Is Still Not That Important

The Baby Is Still Not That Important

Much like the much confused American pursuit of happiness, which, having chucked the necessary element of virtue to the curb, has produced a generation of deeply unhappy people, so also recasting the purpose of parenting to be the rearing of a self-expressive child is bringing about the collapse of society. Think I’m being hyperbolic? I’m not. Children in this culture are unhappier than ever before and in any other place around the world.

Follow Your Heart?

Follow Your Heart?

About a year ago I posted the following on Facebook after reading an article by Joyce Meyer that advises Christian readers to read the bible, pray, and then, “follow your heart.” I wrote (with perhaps a bit of hyperbole): “Yes, check the bible. Yes. Pray. But no, do...

On the Radar

Q&A with Our New Canon Theologians

These events tell me that God is at work in the Church, but the process is often very slow, messy, and difficult. The debates we are having today—about gender, sexuality, race, justice, and more—may take some time to resolve. I feel confident they will continue well beyond my lifetime. This perspective should help keep us humble and focused on daily faithfulness.

DISCOVERED: Nehemiah’s Wall

Though the discovery of the Persian wall and tower was unexpected, when considering the historical sources, it is entirely unsurprising. The Bible discusses just such a wall, at length and in great detail.

Islam Made Me Christian

In my youth, I had been numbed to the decadence that now was impossible to ignore. I started isolating myself from my peers in order to focus on my work and practice my faith.
