At Such A Time As This

The best way to be someone now is to have suffered deeply and tragically in any number of ways. Not suffering or being too materially comfortable is almost a liability. And so there is a rush to document and prove through the socials all the way in which one has been misused by “society,” by others, by the universe, by whole groups of people, and most of all by the Bible.

Insanity Triumphant

When Orwell wrote about two plus two equaling five, he was offering a warning, not a suggestion.

Robots Bound for Glory: A Reflection on Free Will

Matt, Jady, and Nick talk free will on the occasion of Independence Day. Is the biblical assertion that we are slaves bad news…or is it ultimately Good News?

If not “Cultural Marxism”, then what?

Its proponents keep citing Marx and it makes inroads into our culture. If it’s not “Cultural Marxism” then what do we call it?

And They Wonder Why We Don’t Believe Them

In a time of crisis, our leaders have failed the most basic test of leadership: the obligation to tell the truth.

What I’ve Learned By Writing About RHE

What I’ve Learned By Writing About RHE

The truth isn’t “somewhere in the middle.” If you are taking it from both sides, you shouldn’t comfort yourself that you’re probably right because everybody is a little bit wrong. Some people are catastrophically wrong.

How To Talk To “The Old Guy”

How To Talk To “The Old Guy”

The old guy is on the side of the church, but he knows that church growth cannot be in the driver’s seat or the gospel will be thrown out the window as the bus is flying down the road towards the pretty sunset. Of course, as Christians, we must be welcoming, but hospitality cannot be framed as a “tone” issue, a project in the service of which we must all be very winsome about the hard, angular truths of the gospel.

The New Normal

We will remember all the important lessons we learned for maybe a month, max, and then we’ll forget and start complaining about all the usual stuff, trespassing and being trespassed against, and yes, even dying.

If we ever took for granted gathering together in person to worship, we surely do not now! And even most of those who may have considered online worship unimportant take its importance for granted no longer.

Why Bad Things Happen To Bad People

Why Bad Things Happen To Bad People

I found my plain white unscented tapers (by the mercy of God) and then circled (only in one direction) to the Easter Basket display and bought six horrible little plastic “baskets” and some fake grass, because, woe is me, I am evil too.

Jesus Answers Your Silly Questions

Jesus Answers Your Silly Questions

It is the very job of the Christian to give the answer about suffering—all suffering. Lamentation, without the cross, and even more so, without the resurrection, is a paltry, dusty, foolish, absurd thing. The Christian alone has the deepest most satisfying reason for why, a why that gathers up all the anxiety, all the hopelessness into an eternal hope.

Stop Saying “We”

Stop Saying “We”

Disasters and Presumptions

Disasters and Presumptions

Every Life Matters: A Response to Mr. Reno

We’ve been tearing babies out of the womb and chucking them away, destroying the lives of their mothers and fathers in the process and yeah, the economy, heretofore, has been ticking along fine, but, I would say, with little beauty and less honor and certainly dubious quantities of justice.

The Gospel is Not At Stake

If there were no pandemic sickness and the government were to tyrannically demand that we not meet on pain of death, I think we would be obligated to disobey and face the consequences. But in this case, lives are at stake, not the Gospel.
