After all of the hysteria over World War III, which didn’t happen by the way, I am reminded of one of the great truths of Scripture: divine sovereignty. In other words, God always gets His way. This truth is very plain throughout Scripture. Proverbs 21:1 The king’s heart is like channels of water in the … Continue reading Divine Sovereignty and World War III
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
This has been bugging me for a while, but I’ve had trouble putting it into words until lately. Everyone knows that male chauvinism is a bad thing; putting women down just because they’re women isn’t good. Duh. But in our zeal to not be chauvinistic against women, our culture has swung to the other extreme; … Continue reading Female Chauvinism Is Real, and It’s a Problem
Money; it’s something we all have to deal with. Furthermore, we all know that the love of money is bad, courtesy of 1 Timothy 6:10. So far so good; but if we stop there we leave another question unanswered: is it wrong to want more money? Put another way, is it wrong to pursue a … Continue reading Should A Christian Want Money?
The idea of slavery reparations is all the rage in the woke sections of our culture, and in the rising ‘woke church’ movement. The idea behind this demand is that since black people were enslaved for centuries, that the descendents of those who enslaved them now owe the descendents of those slaves reparations for the … Continue reading Reparations: It’s Not Just the Argument, It’s the Attitude
Whenever a celebrity claims to be a Christian, we make a huge deal about it. While there’s nothing wrong with being glad a famous person has come to Christ (duh), there’s a risk to it too. Our desire that a famous person would really be one of us can blind us to warning signs that … Continue reading How to Evaluate Christian Celebrities
For years, futurists, techies and sci-fi writers have looked forward to the day when robots would work alongside humans, and replace us in dirty, dangerous jobs. From looking at the Boston Dynamics YouTube channel (which is really cool), it would appear that day is not far off. As cool as the advent of robot workers … Continue reading Robots are cool, but are they people?
Yes, you read that right. White privilege, the (alleged) extra rights enjoyed by white people in virtue of their being white in a racist society, is not a thing that exists in the United States. I know that, according to some parts of society, I’m not really supposed to challenge the idea of white privilege … Continue reading White Privilege Doesn’t Exist
People, especially politicians, love to talk about human rights, to the point where the phrase has almost become trite. 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?
