Collectivizing property can witness to the Kingdom of God, in which all is provided for all to enjoy. That’s not what Marxists want.
Totalitarianism masked by terms such as “tolerance” and “diversity” is all the rage on American campuses.
The reason that we have Mr. Trump is that ordinary people got fed up with being told things they know, manifestly, are just not true.

The Super Bowl halftime show was a testimony to the schizophrenia of modern feminism.
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.
Instead of sin and redemption, heaven and hell, law and Gospel, or even essential v. non-essential, sexual choices have to do with best practices. Sexual engagements outside of marriage do not quite meet the mark of human flourishing but neither are they defiant offenses against a thrice holy God.
The ignorant reactive voices, most especially the barbarous yelp of bloggers, must be quieted so that the considered wisdom of the wise might prevail
Lives that look like world beaters can be beaten down pretty darn quick.
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...
I had a chance to open my mouth in sentences beginning, “Jesus tells us…”
You know what is hard? Life in general. If you expect life in general to be easy peasy, parenting will be hard for you. And if you think that you are the center of your own universe, parenting will be the apocalypse, because the clash between you and the baby will be epic.
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...

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.
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...
There are fair criticisms of churches’ historically extreme and even lethal takes on sexuality.
Just as God reveals himself to humanity in the Man Jesus Christ, so also you must reveal yourself to the world in some identifiable way. When you do this, your bravery and courage will bring harmony and healing to a broken world.

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...
On the Radar
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.
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.
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.
Gay and lesbian activists, along with their bisexual allies, are about to be clobbered. They’re about to be decked. But not by those enemy evangelicals they have long resented and demonized.
She was trans by age 8, when her mother outlined the LGBTQ acronym after a search for gender-nonconforming bathing suits.
I wanted to outrun the Nothing. And there was nothing I would not have sacrificed—friendships, relationships, the blood from the heel of my foot—to get it.
