Adams State University’s “Sex in the Dark”

Adams State University is my alma mater. I still live in the town where it’s located, and I know members of the faculty and some of the students through my local church. I still care very much for the school, and want to minister to the campus. Last year I heard about an event the school held called “Sex in the Dark.” “Sex in the … Continue reading Adams State University’s “Sex in the Dark”

Safe Spaces

Today at church someone made a passing joke about “safe spaces.” The concept has been on my mind since I recently posted a video on one of my social media platforms where the concept was also mocked. I realized I have never written anything addressing the issue of “safe spaces.” What is the biblical response to these? Defining Terms Safe spaces are a bit out-dated. … Continue reading Safe Spaces

Political Correctness

The Debate Jordan Peterson has become somewhat of a superstar over the past couple years as he has continued his fight against governmental oversight and left wing censorship. I have been a little nervous about how much Christians have embraced a non-believing, Darwinian psychologist. Nonetheless, he is a brilliant man and has offered some meaningful responses to much of the culture with which Christians also … Continue reading Political Correctness

GQ on the Bible

For years thousands upon thousands of people have waited with baited breath, on the edge of their seats, for the competent, genius, academic, scholarly employees at GQ magazine to share their unbiased, objective, and sophisticated thoughts on the Bible. Thousands of years of biblical scholarship be damned, we need those over at a men’s fashion magazine to share their insight on God’s Book. Thankfully, our … Continue reading GQ on the Bible

Evolution in the Public School

One subject I have been overdue to write on is the issue of evolution, specifically regarding public education and the indoctrination of the youth. I received my undergraduate degree in secondary English education. I was very excited to become a public educator until the opportunity to be a pastor presented itself. Although I did not enter education, it has been, and always will be, an … Continue reading Evolution in the Public School

The Golden Rule

The Golden Rule Any person who professes any form of Atheism will find themselves regularly in conversations about morality. Objective ethics has become the Achilles’ heel of the position which asserts a universe without God is possible. What I have found strikingly interesting over the years is how many non-Christians will cling to the Golden Rule rule as being a moral standard for themselves. I … Continue reading The Golden Rule

Sacred & Secular

Doctrine and Devotion One of my favorite podcasts to listen to is “Doctrine and Devotion” (Doc & Devo). Lead pastor of Redeemer Fellowship, Joe Thorn, and elder candidate, Jimmy Fowler, put on a great show. They are theologically rich, and hysterical to boot. As a reformed Baptist like them, I agree with them on quite a bit, and I have been sanctified on many theological … Continue reading Sacred & Secular

Bracing for the Inevitable Rape Culture

John Calvin rightly identified one of the primary purposes of the Law of God being the restraint of evil. The Law of God is like a damn which holds back the waters of sin. America’s culture has for many years now been taking hammers to the concrete, and water has been spilling out. The water being held back is a ferocious force, capable of more … Continue reading Bracing for the Inevitable Rape Culture

Take Down the Statues

I am not a history buff. Read that as a confession, not an assertion. I am not proud of this. If I have learned one thing as of late, it is the importance of knowing history. Whether it is personal history, church history, national history, or world history, knowledge of the past is more important than I used to recognize. This severe lack proficiency in … Continue reading Take Down the Statues
