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.

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.

Yet one more step in the walk of... Continue Reading →

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 →
