The Kiss (not) Seen Round the World

A Star Wars Smooch The newest movie in the Star Wars saga included a lesbian kiss scene. It was a brief scene at the end of the movie among two insignificant characters. And it’s precisely for it’s irrelevancy that I must comment. Intergalactic Intersectionality The newest of the Star Wars trilogy, under Disney’s direction, has wasted no time demonstrating what side of the culture wars … Continue reading The Kiss (not) Seen Round the World

CNN Attempts to Manipulate Christian Musicians

CNN recently published quite an interesting article about contemporary Christian music. As a pastor and long-time worship director, a secular news station turning its eye toward the Christian music industry like a woke Sauron had all the trappings of a read I enjoy. It certainly didn’t disappoint. The article can be summarized as CNN’s lame attempt to use Christianity as a means to “blue pill” influential … Continue reading CNN Attempts to Manipulate Christian Musicians

John the Baptist on the Ellen DeGeneres Show

A Spiritual Hunch Lauren Daigle is another unfortunate (though not surprising) case study in compromised Christianity. Not long ago, Daigle appeared on the Ellen Degeneres show. Many Christians took issue with this, but failed to articulate why in an appropriate way. I think this is evidence of how Christians find difficulty putting into words the convictions of the Holy Spirit. In other words, many Christians took qualm, … Continue reading John the Baptist on the Ellen DeGeneres Show

Adams State University’s “Sex in the Dark”

Adams State University is my alma mater. I still live in the town where it’s located, and I know members of the faculty and some of the students through my local church. I still care very much for the school, and want to minister to the campus. Last year I heard about an event the school held called “Sex in the Dark.” “Sex in the … Continue reading Adams State University’s “Sex in the Dark”

Francis and the Future of Roman Catholicism

Half a decade ago, when I was at university, I attended a public discussion the theatre department put on about homosexuality. Two separate panels discussed the issue. First, there was a panel of professors from the school. They had no diversity, all shared the same view on homosexuality. Then a religious panel was brought on to the stage to discuss the issue. Represented was a … Continue reading Francis and the Future of Roman Catholicism

The Golden Rule

The Golden Rule Any person who professes any form of Atheism will find themselves regularly in conversations about morality. Objective ethics has become the Achilles’ heel of the position which asserts a universe without God is possible. What I have found strikingly interesting over the years is how many non-Christians will cling to the Golden Rule rule as being a moral standard for themselves. I … Continue reading The Golden Rule

Balaam on the Nashville Statement

Balaam in the Old Testament is not admirable for many reasons. As a pagan who practiced divination, he is most notably known for enticing the Israelites to sin (Numbers 31:16). John’s commentary on him, in Revelation 2:14, states that Balaam “taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, so that they might eat food sacrificed to idols and practice sexual immorality.” … Continue reading Balaam on the Nashville Statement

A Bipartisan Hypocrisy

If anything has happened recently to prove the Gospel is bipartisan and transcends the two-party political system of 21st century America, it is the recent drama over comments made by Milo Yiannopoulos. I have mentioned Milo before, and everything I say next was first said here by Douglas Wilson. However, in my defense, I did have these thoughts before I read Pastor Wilson’s blog. The Controversy Allow … Continue reading A Bipartisan Hypocrisy
