The Question of Homosexuality, Part 1: What Are The Stakes?

There's been a lot of talk lately about whether or not there are Gay Christians. There's been a book written about it. And then another book written in response to the first book. And before you write this off as another example of dispensable doctrinal discrimination, let's take a peek at how each side frames the debate. Conservatives believe… Continue reading The Question of Homosexuality, Part 1: What Are The Stakes?

The Impossible Obligations of Sexual Harassment Allegations – Part 2

I won't rehash everything I said in Part 1, except to say that if you haven't read it, you'll be missing all the context of my remarks here. The upshot is that we simply don't have the option of "just believe the women," since that would incentivize dirty politics, false accusations, and outright blackmail.

Seriously?) this claim is still being repeated ad nauseam. This is one of the worst recent examples of media malpractice/blatant fake news. In more detail: 1. Literally… Continue reading FACT CHECK: Does The GOP Tax Reform Bill Raise Taxes?

Psalm 1:2 famously tells us that the blessed man delights in the Law of the Lord, and meditates on God’s Law day and night. But verse 3 deserves just as much of our attention: “He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all… Continue reading The Only Way Out of Spiritual Bondage
