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 →

Two Poems

A number of years ago I ran across a call for scores put out by some choral ensemble or other, asking for settings of a poem by William Ernest Henley called “Invictus.” I gave it a good effort, and I’m still somewhat fond of some of the musical fragments that came from that effort, but...

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.

According to 2 Timothy 3:16, all of Scripture is... Continue Reading →

My thoughts have shifted some through conversation with others about the topic, and other topics intimately connected therewith. I must also confess that when I first began to study...

Pray Like A Trinitarian!

I really mean it. Pray as though you actually believed in the doctrine of the Trinity. Why do I say this? Well, two times in this past week, worship leaders at chapel and at church prayed in a non-Trinitarian fashion. While addressing the prayer to God the Father, they mistakenly said that he had taken... Continue Reading →

Seeing Past Liberal Spin on Abortion

While processing books at the university library the other day, I came across a new volume entitled About Abortion, written by Carol Sanger, a law professor at Columbia Law School. The subtitle and synopsis in the front flap caught my attention; they were perfect examples of liberal spin when it comes to this issue. I... Continue Reading →
