We live in interesting times; the kind of times that make one say, like Bilbo Baggins, “Sorry! I don’t want any adventures, thank you.” As of this writing, the election is still undecided even though the mainstream media calls Joe Biden the president-elect. If you’ve been getting your news from conservative media, you’re aware of … Continue reading Election 2020: Byzantine Politics for the Modern Day
Well, election season is upon us, so let’s get the obligatory article about voting out of the way. Now, my goal here is not to turn this site into a political commentary site. I’m not looking to take market share from the likes of Ben Shapiro or Sean Hannity. That said, we mustn’t silo our … Continue reading On Voting
If you follow the news, you may have noticed an interesting phenomenon. The more progressive/left-leaning someone is, the more strident and uncompromising they are in advocating for their beliefs, to the point that they prefer to shut down those who disagree; rather than have a reasonable discussion. Some of this can, no doubt, be ascribed … Continue reading Conscience and the Left’s Moral Posturing

That is annoying, as human rights are a very specific thing, not just a slogan to stick onto a politician’s latest totalitarian attempt to seize more power. To correct this, we need a good definition of … Continue reading Human Rights: Where do they come from?
Let’s face it, government is a reality we all have to deal with, no matter where in the world we live. As Christians, we need to make sure that we relate to our government in a way that honors God. It is, in general, a simple rule: Christians are to submit to the government and … Continue reading How Should a Christian Relate To the Government?
In the age of fashionable Trump-hatred, nothing is sacred. This much is obvious from the anti-Trump opinion piece published at Christian Post, a site that is usually pretty balanced. That’s the risk of an opinion section; don't shoot the messenger. The author, one John L. McCullough, absolutely mutilates the story of Jesus birth to characterize … Continue reading Jesus Wasn’t An Illegal Alien. Stop It.
