    The future of Russia and Ukraine according to the Bible

    The invasion of the Ukraine by Russia has re-awakened fears of the communist Northern giant that haven’t been felt for a very long time. And fear is something all bullies, including Russia, prize even when everything else around them is failing.

    Let’s talk about your subscription to Jesus

    With all this, it’s no surprise that the subscription mindset has made inroads into our spiritual life. Spiritual box subscriptions are plentiful as are YouTube churches that are easy to find and subscribe to.

  • Why are we so scared of everything?

    Why are we so scared of everything?

    Hardware stores saw WWE cage matches between customers over bags of salt. All this because they might have to stay home for a day and a half. Why do people behave this way? It’s because today, maybe more than ever, we’re afraid of everything. And our fear causes us to act in the most irrational ways imaginable.  

  • The judgments of God are everywhere

    The judgments of God are everywhere

    I’m certainly not saying every bad thing that happens is a particularly directed divine judgment handed down to us. However, I would like to reverse the question of, “why do bad things happen to good people?”, to have you think instead about, “why do good things happen to anyone?” Given our historical track record, we deserve judgment far more than we deserve blessings.

    Don’t dis the Old Testament

    While talking with someone about a culturally moral issue, I referred to a statement made in Scripture to back up my opinion. At that point, the other person laughed and said, “Yeah, well the Bible also says not to wear clothing made of two different materials.” Ever had that happen to you? If so, how did you respond?

    The problem of moral evil: Calvinism vs. Molinism

    I finally got a chance to watch the Calvinism vs. Molinism debate between Dr. James White and Dr. William Lane Craig where each tackled the problem of moral evil from their theological position. Moderated by Justin Brierley during his Unbelievable broadcast, the discussion was a good opportunity to hear points of view straight from the horse’s mouth on a difficult subject.

    Why America is not a Christian nation

    What I am saying is that, if you define a “Christian nation” as one governed solely by New Testament principles, then there has never been a Christian nation.

    Do you have a blind heart?

    Shriver’s attempt at feigning unfamiliarity with the truth in the Rittenhouse case reminds me of a quote from Aldous Huxley: “Most ignorance is vincible ignorance. We don't know because we don't want to know. It is our will that decides how and upon what subjects we shall use our intelligence.”
