A Comment on Bruce Jenner

I'm so tired of hearing about this and I was planning on ignoring the topic entirely, but I recently read an article from James over at the I 53:5 Project about the Christian response to it in which  I commented.  The comment got a bit lengthy and I thought I'd re-post it here. I see… Continue reading A Comment on Bruce Jenner

Video: A Thought on 21st Century Proselytizing

A good friend and I were having a conversation a few nights back and we somehow ended up on the topic of Christianity and proselytizing.  For anyone who doesn't know, proselytizing is the act of trying to convert someone.  He isn't a Christian and he's been very open with me that Christians make him uncomfortable. … Continue reading Video: A Thought on 21st Century Proselytizing

A Game of Thrones, or Pledging Allegiance to…

I'm not a fan of the Game of Thrones series.  I've never watched an episode but I read a little bit of the book and it wasn't really my cup of tea.  Given that I'm not a fan, I think most people have heard about the outrage over the shows depicting the rape of one… Continue reading A Game of Thrones, or Pledging Allegiance to…

Left Wing/RightWing: A Christian Political Scientist’s Review of Modern Politics

I am a political junkie.  I am a student of political science and I watch the news far more often than I probably should, but I like knowing what's going on and being able to engage in discussions that the power players are having.  That being said, I've recognized that for most Americans political speak… Continue reading Left Wing/RightWing: A Christian Political Scientist’s Review of Modern Politics

Desiring God: Parenting in the Valley of Dry Bones

"They said they were sorry.  They picked up their toys with force and temper.  They mouthed 'yes, sir.'  Though you've taught them the form of what to feel, do, and say, you recognize in these moments how helpless you are to change their hearts.  This is when we need the same thing Ezekiel did that… Continue reading Desiring God: Parenting in the Valley of Dry Bones

Listen to me, O house of Jacob, all the remnant of the house of Israel, who have been borne by me from before your birth, carried from the womb; even to your old age I am he, and to gray hairs I will carry you.  I have made, and I will bear; I will carry… Continue reading Bearer of the Remnant

Video Post: Warnings from a Modern Day Prophet

As Christians, we use the term prophet cautiously because of how many false prophets there are and have been.  Prophecy is not necessarily about predicting the future, but about speaking from God to national leaders and to the people of the nations.  In my opinion, if you have to label yourself a prophet then you… Continue reading Video Post: Warnings from a Modern Day Prophet

An Introduction to Bible Prophecy

Prophecy has been something that has captivated mankind for centuries.  It's a mystery that is found in the lore of civilizations around the world, often times as related to a religion (though not always).  Prophecy, as it's typically understood, can be categorized as a predictive forecast of an event or series thereof.  That, then, begs… Continue reading An Introduction to Bible Prophecy
