I got in a war of words with a prominent reformed pastor the other day. I’ll call him “Junior,” because my fight is not so much with him, but the error he represents. Through the miracle of of Facebook, we went head to head. There’s no fight quite like a theological fight, and this one..

You should pay very close attention to what disgusts you. Mind you, I’m not saying you should seek to be disgusted. Far from it. We’re encouraged to find that which is “lovely and praiseworthy,” but that implies something: you were given an internal meter for measuring these things–by God Himself. For the sake of illustration,..
Picture the children of Israel marching closer to the promised land, and they encounter some really vile Canaanites. I’m talking real cannibals here. They are covered with greasy soot, caked on their faces by the burning of their own children in altars kept smouldering to Molech. They smell of gore and greed, and their spears..
Mel Gibson had this part right.. In the wake of this week’s narrow victory for homosexual rights, get ready for a lot of half-truth solutions: we need to be kinder, less judgmental, more free with Christian charity. Preach the sinner’s prayer and then everything will sorta just fix itself, right? Well, the entire gospel includes..
In Defense of Empire Rand Paul and his pops, should be applauded for defending the Constitution, but thoroughly scolded for lamenting a better way. Newsflash, folks: some ideas are better than others. The term “Arab Spring” might invoke an image of fragrant grains blooming in a once parched desert and a luxury Hilton opening its..

The 1893 photograph of Perringdale is widely misunderstood, and scandalously misrepresented by his detractors. Over the course of three years, Perringdale repaired to his parents’ barn in Le Mars, Iowa, where–surrounded by..
Don’t worry about that title. I’m a capitalist, down to the bone, blood, and sinew. During basketball games, as a 6’2″ 9th grader, I sat on the bench reading books about the stock market. These days, I spend almost all of my spare mental time wondering how I can make my small business grow, since..
Christianity is fairly simple: man is a sinner, and Jesus came to pay the price for those sins: all who truly believe on Him are saved. Unfortunately, under Gay Sharia Law, that may be unapproved expression, subject to fines and jail time. If you don’t think so, take a look at this story about a..
Politichicks ran an article of mine this morning on the subject of having fun. My super short, mini-micro, two paragraph thesis is that conservatives need to combine celebration, romance, music, good food and fine wine with the task of “taking back America.” The Bible is a divine record of knowing there is a time for..
The morning broke a little warm and windy; the farm’s golden hour looked happy enough, grapevine green and all, fruit fattening up in the summer morning heat, but I was troubled, and then I recalled the source of the worry: I spent an hour or two in a theater yesterday, trying not to weep. Dinesh..
