On Divorcing Worldliness

Are we still all for God’s intervention? Where are our priorities? Do we want for Babylon to fall, or are we secretly rooting for her success because we are having a love affair with that wicked woman? Do we want for her bed to burn down, or are we worried because we’re lying in it?

My Top 10 Books Read in 2020

A list of my favorite 10 books I read this year.

The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self (A Book Review)

In The Rise and Triumph of the Modern Self, Trueman describes the dominos that must be set in place—and have been set in place—before a society is prepared to accept a phrase like, “I am a woman trapped in a man’s body” as meaningful.

But Lewis says, “Always speak up. Even if it costs you everything. Telling truth is ‘being on the right side of history,’ because history is written by the God of all Truth.” Christians should be fundamentally opposed to cancel culture because cancel culture traffics in self-deception.

The Danger of Cool-Shaming

To put the matter directly, our lost neighbors are not helped by our obsession for their approval.

Among the many disheartening features of Western culture, here at the late hour of modernity’s twilight, is its general dislike of children.

July 20th, 2020 – An Ebenezer

I thought this celestial mountain top was high, but oh! How infinitely more so!

Please Come Back to Church Pt. 2 – An Open Letter to Christians

Christian, watching a service streamed online is not “doing church” at home. You are not “gathering” online. What you are doing is watching other Christians gather. And this is a poor substitute for gathering with them yourself.
