Orwell Addresses America

Politics and the English Language “I never discuss anything else except politics and religion. There is nothing else to discuss.” – G.K. Chesterton It is difficult for me to imagine exactly what all the great George Orwell might say about our current cultural situation were he to resurrect and assimilate into American culture in the year 2020. I don’t know which “sides” he would take … Continue reading Orwell Addresses America

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

Movie Review: Captain Marvel

Be warned: There will be spoilers in this review, although they will be mild. Proceed with caution. I saw the new Marvel movie, and it was about as expected. Here is the good, the bad, and the ugly. The Good: Entertainment Value The movie was entertaining at the grass root. The costume and makeup was good, and the CGI was phenomenal. In fact, it was … Continue reading Movie Review: Captain Marvel

The Murder of a Missionary

A few weeks ago the internet was in a storm discussing the murder of missionary John Chau, a Christian who attempted to go to an illegal island (North Sentinel Island), and bring the Gospel to an unreached people group, commonly called the Sentinelese. There is quite a bit of both criticism and support towards Chau from both Christians and non-Christians alike. Many of the criticisms … Continue reading The Murder of a Missionary

Safe Spaces

Today at church someone made a passing joke about “safe spaces.” The concept has been on my mind since I recently posted a video on one of my social media platforms where the concept was also mocked. I realized I have never written anything addressing the issue of “safe spaces.” What is the biblical response to these? Defining Terms Safe spaces are a bit out-dated. … Continue reading Safe Spaces

Political Correctness

The Debate Jordan Peterson has become somewhat of a superstar over the past couple years as he has continued his fight against governmental oversight and left wing censorship. I have been a little nervous about how much Christians have embraced a non-believing, Darwinian psychologist. Nonetheless, he is a brilliant man and has offered some meaningful responses to much of the culture with which Christians also … Continue reading Political Correctness

Sacred & Secular

Doctrine and Devotion One of my favorite podcasts to listen to is “Doctrine and Devotion” (Doc & Devo). Lead pastor of Redeemer Fellowship, Joe Thorn, and elder candidate, Jimmy Fowler, put on a great show. They are theologically rich, and hysterical to boot. As a reformed Baptist like them, I agree with them on quite a bit, and I have been sanctified on many theological … Continue reading Sacred & Secular

Take Down the Statues

I am not a history buff. Read that as a confession, not an assertion. I am not proud of this. If I have learned one thing as of late, it is the importance of knowing history. Whether it is personal history, church history, national history, or world history, knowledge of the past is more important than I used to recognize. This severe lack proficiency in … Continue reading Take Down the Statues

Bernie Sanders is an Ignorant Bigot

A new video is going viral, exposing the ignorance and bigotry of former presidential candidate, Senator Bernie Sanders. Russel Vought was nominated by Donald Trump to be Deputy Director of the White House Office of Management and Budget. Sanders voted no in regards to Mr. Vought’s nomination, and his bigoted and ignorant reasoning for this is as follows: The Constitution As Al Mohler already stated on … Continue reading Bernie Sanders is an Ignorant Bigot
