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.

Are the Creeds Enough?

If an ordained leader in the church professes and truly believes the Creeds but promotes transgenderism and homosexual unions, should we accept him as a genuine brother and legitimate Christian teacher? The question goes to the heart of discipleship; what does it mean...

Fulfilled. Out of Egypt I Called My Son.

Fulfilled. Out of Egypt I Called My Son.

When Matthew cites the opening words “out of Egypt I called my son” he evokes thoughts of much more than simply the fact of the Exodus. “Out of Egypt I called my son” is a lament, the tragic cry of a Heavenly Father who has poured loved upon his child, guided them like a parent holds a toddler’s hands to help them learn to walk, and yet now watches them run away from him.

Fulfilled. But you, Bethlehem.

And so the Magi arrive. A band of travellers from the east arriving at the gates of Jerusalem to announce that the king’s reign has come to an end. Away with the old! In with the new! Everything is disturbed by the men from the east that God has sent.

The Martyrs and Missiological Damage

It is no secret that the Church of England is in trouble. Several years ago, I likened the contemporary English Church to the Episcopal Church in 1999. That was my first year as an M.Div student at Virginia Theological Seminary. I remember thinking at the time that...
