Do White People Care About the Bible?

Skye Jethani is a relatively well-known voice in the evangelical world. As an author and online content creator, he has contributed in many ways to evangelical public conversations over the years. I have found many of his insights specifically focused on the megachurch movement to be very helpful, though I have always known that he and I do not see eye to eye on a … Continue reading Do White People Care About the Bible?

Flinching at the Cross

Taking the Good Out of Good Friday Yesterday was Good Friday 2020. I preached a sermon which is typically in line with what I normally focus on during Good Friday services; Penal Substitutionary Atonement. That phrase might be foreign to you, but if you’re a Christian, the concept is not. Otherwise known as Substitutionary Atonement (SA), it is the doctrine of Christ becoming our sin-bearer. … Continue reading Flinching at the Cross

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

Herod’s Ancient Dream

A Festivus for the Restofus I saw a trend on Twitter for “Festivus” and discovered that Festivus is a made up secular holiday (which apparently finds its origin in Seinfeld). Festivus is strategically placed the day before Christmas Eve, and it is supposed to be a time for secularists to vent their grievances. And I couldn’t be more thrilled. Although it’s mostly celebrated in jest, … Continue reading Herod’s Ancient Dream

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

A “Christian Minister” Denies All Christian Doctrine

The New York Times is no bastion of conservative, Christian journalism, and they set out to reinforce that Easter 2019. Nicholas Kristof published an opinion article interviewing Serene Jones about the resurrection of Jesus.   Below I walk through the interview point-by-point, but in case you don’t have the patience for that, I decided to front load this blog with what would usually come at the … Continue reading A “Christian Minister” Denies All Christian Doctrine

#blackwordsmatter

 Spirit of Unbelief Every generation and culture has a spirit of unbelief, but the manifestation of unbelief in every generation does not always look the same. There different ways to go about the business of rejecting Christ and His Word. There are plenty of non-Christians in North Korea, but their unbelief is of a different variety than Saudi Arabia, which also has a plenty of … Continue reading #blackwordsmatter

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

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
