A Retraction

I have had to write a few of these over the course of my lifetime, typically on social media. I have not written one for the blog yet, however. So, here goes nothing. Perhaps "retraction" is too strong a word. "Apology" might be more fitting, or "reconsideration." In any event, I no longer think the... Continue Reading →

A Plea for Deliverance

O Yahweh, my God, deliver me from those who ensnare me; Save me from those who tempt me to sin. The wicked torment my soul daily without ceasing; Long into the night they oppress my mind. Help me, O Yahweh, to flee from sin, And instead to pursue righteousness. For though the wicked prowl at... Continue Reading →

Life’s Criminal Agnosticism

William Alfred Quayle (1860-1925) was an Episcopalian minister and author. Reproduced here is an excerpt from one of his sermons, entitled “Life’s Criminal Agnosticism.” When you're outside admiring God’s creation, I hope this encourages you to remember the Creator. And knew not that it was Jesus. —John 20:14 Mary was in the garden. Some of... Continue Reading →

Three Years Later

Three years have passed since the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 that, according to the 14th amendment to the Constitution of the United States, it is a basic human right for people to “marry” whomever they choose, including those of the same gender/sex. “Gay marriage” as it's called. Yet one more step in the walk of... Continue Reading →

Review: How Should We Then Live?

I decided to take a book report I wrote last school year and post it as a blog article. Odd, I know, but I recently re-read it and thought it was good enough to make the blog (with some edits). Here it is, summarizing Francis Schaeffer's How Should We Then Live? and detailing what I learned from... Continue Reading →

In Defense of Sola Scriptura

I ran across an Instagram post the other day that contained a 5 point argument against Sola Scriptura (although, it was more of an argument against the Protestant conception of canon, though that was misrepresented as well). The argument was as follows: If Sola Scriptura is true, then all important theological data necessary for doctrine... Continue Reading →

Yes, God Hath Said

It pains me whenever an evolutionary creationist is accused by a young-earth creationist of having the mindset of Satan. YECs are notorious for leveling the accusation that we are saying, "Hath God said?" when it comes to origins issues. My friends, that just isn't the case. According to 2 Timothy 3:16, all of Scripture is... Continue Reading →
